Straight Banana Republic

Here we go again as reported in Times Online - World the European Union propaganda machine, is perpetrating the Euromyth, that we do no live in a Straight Banana Republic. However, Ken over at the EUREALIST points out 'The only problem the Commission has is that most of these so called Euromyths are based on the truth; the Commission is upset, not about them being untrue, but about the public being fully informed of the EU and its affects on the British people.' The Times online states, As part of its campaign to improve flagging confidence in the European Union, it has set up a website giving detailed rebuttal of stories that it complains leaves readers with a "picture of the EU as a bunch of mad "eurocrats".

The EU site Get your facts straight has a link to what they describe as BENDY BANANA Myth. Having read it, I note they don't deny it. Well, it would be a little difficult to deny, as a quick GOOGLE reveals Commission Regulation (EC) No 2257/94 of 16 September 1994 which says : Sizing is determined by: - the length of the edible pulp of the fruit, expressed in centimetres and measured along the convex face from the blossom end to the base of the peduncle, - the grade, i.e. the measurement, in millimetres, of the thickness of a transverse section of the fruit between the lateral faces and the middle, perpendicularly to the longitudinal axis. Etc etc

The EU a Straight Banana Republic
