Bananas

I have stopped watching question time on Thursdays - it was just making me too angry. Earlier, though, I got wind of something too nauseatingly ridiculous to ignore. Last night, a woman in the QT audience told the country how, on referendum day last year, she was all set to vote Remain, but changed her mind at the last moment because she decided she objected to EU rules governing the shape of bananas. When I heard that, I threw my arms into the air in disbelief: due to such foolishness, my rights are now under threat; due to such foolishness, this country now stands to become a hell of unregulated capitalist greed, where the privileged few are free to walk all over people like me. So what if our bananas had to be straight? Such standardisation was necessary to ensure fairness and equality. Those who complained about such rules exaggerated the problem, and did so to mislead people. They wanted to cast the EU as an overbearing bogeyman with all it's silly rules, the better to manipulate people into voting to leave. Fewer rules means fewer consumer rights. It obviously worked. People fell for such crap, and we'll all soon be suffering because of it.
