The usual culprit
EU regulation has been hurting Brits for a long time, but often we don't realize where the legislation that causes the pain originates.
London Mayor Boris Johnson has just received a report (Wall Street Journal, 15 December) which states that London is losing business because of "UK treasury taxes" and "too much UK and European Union regulation". This loss is already hurting people, many of them not in the financial sector.
At Bloggers 4 UKIP, a Brit working for an IT organisation describes "the brown stuff" into which he is being dropped because of the Working Time Directive. The loss of the WTD opt-out will cost every British household over £2,000.
The litany of EU-inflicted pain is well-nigh endless.
