Sailing The Wide EC?

Loyal readers will know that I usually picture the European Commission cooking breakfast.

But recently I've begun to conceive of the EC as lashed to the wheel of the good ship Eurozone amidst a howling gale and mountainous seas, courageously holding course for the mystical land known by some as the Single Market. I fancy that their struggle against all odds reveals something of the pioneering spirit that perhaps one might grudgingly admire, if only as an enthusiastic collector of red tape.

Anyhow, last week saw the publication of the EC's consumer agenda and a report on consumer policy.

Happy reading.
