Shop till you drop on Friday - the EU Commissariat demands it

Yes they do, as Friday 15th is European Consumer Day.

I have been a tad misleading, as what the Commissariat has more in mind for the day is that we should be reading up on the consumer credit act and sundry other documents. I do not doubt that Euroman and Eurowoman will be digging out magnifying glasses to better read the small print.

And the really dedicated, should they find themselves in Brussels, should make haste to Galeries de la Reine, where there is an exhibition of sundry public information campaigns so that '"real-life" shoppers can enjoy and learn from the messages that the campaigns convey".

As points of interest, it is also International Day Against Police Brutality, the anniversary of Columbus returning from his first voyage (so stock up on tobacco, potatoes and the like, maybe?) and, obviously, the Ides.
