On 17th September (not even a month ago) I reported that the nice egg man at our nearby market was now following new EU regulations, and was stamping his eggs with some silly nonsense that told us where they came from, and when they were laid, etc (if we could be bothered to decipher the smudged red writing).
Well, I'm pleased to report that in true French style, the new regulations are already being ignored, and my last Saturday's purchase of eggs (above) were all STAMP FREE!
For a moment I'd imagined the French were becoming lackeys to Brussels' bureaucrats, but my faith has been restored.
Aux armes citoyens, formez vos bataillons. Marchons, marchons. No more red stamping on local free range eggs!
If next Saturday I see him being hauled off to the Guillotine; I'll let you know.
