    seems like they're paying a lot of money though as that and my sources show
    'A lot' is a relative term. A cost-benefit analysis needs to be done and that is impossible without concrete figures.

    Conservative as in the ideology not necessarily the political party

    EDIT - Title Edited
    conservative - ideology
    Conservative - party

    When people say they are "small c conservative" they are saying that they hold conservative beliefs but are not affiliated with the party.

    Hmm, I'm still not convinced you have your facts in order. The legislation you site is, rightly so, concerned with a definition of "sound, fair and of marketable quality"; this does allow for misshapen products depending on the 'class' of the product. It seems that many supermarkets just choose to sell 'Extra class' products but are in no way forced to.

    Anyone who has been to Aldi would know this.

    Of course, I don't expect you to change your opinion on leaving the EU based on this one factor, but saying "supermarkets cannot sell slightly misfigured fruit or vegetables" doesn't seem to be true.
    In all honesty I am no expert on this subject. If you have any definitive proof of your claim I am more than happy to say I'm wrong.

    This one of many reasons why i back brexit , and it ties into " red tape " why should commissioners dictate in what condition we sell our fruit and vegetable ? when we are perfectly capable of doing so ourselves ?

    Seems to me they are dictating that fruit and veg can only be sold if it is not rotting, has no pests and is free from damage from pests.
    Isn't really an issue as far as I'm concerned.

    The rules are in place for the *****er countries in the EU; there's no need to take it so personally, as far as I can see.

    The main " red tape issues for me are
    - Health and safety
    - EU regulations on things like Farming ,Food Quality ( I.e no slightly misfigured fruit or vegetables
    Health and safety
    I think that EU health and safety Lawes are to bureaucratic and they effect the smallest of business which most of them don't even apply to ... Obviously its there for a reason however its needs watering down for smaller business
    Misfigured fruit and vegetables
    Under EU regulations supermarkets cannot sell slightly misfigured fruit or vegetables .... Seems a waste to me .....
    Farming
    Don't know to much on farming however I understand they also have to obey by EU regulations
    The EU fat cats went ahead and banned most GM foods, despite the fact that GM foods are better for you, have higher crop yields, can be made resistant to diseases and provide a large market for consumer goods. We could have greatly reduced food prices and healthier food, but the EU idiots decided to be backwards and worse still, fearmonger about it.

    There's so much more as well...

    Ahh okay let's leave the European Union so we can buy misfigured vegetables?
    That's your definition of sovereignty? Deary me.

    And health and safety laws prevent accidents at work and ensure we can work in a safe environment.... How awful.

    Thats ties into food regulations that are over-bureaucratic and is one of the many regulations that make up 75% of the laws the UK most follow as members of the EU

    Health and safety rules made by the EU have to much red tape and they affect the smallest of businesses which is ridiculous

    Food regulations ensure the food we buy is of a sufficient and hygienic standard.

    Health and safety laws are not red tape. Tell me exactly which eu health and safety laws you want rid of? Not general, but specific laws.

    Sorry but I think people's right to work in a safe place where they are not at danger is essential.

    Yes food regulations ensure the food we buy is safe however why should it be down to the EU to make theses regulations ? surly our parliament can make theses rules ? same with health and safety , our government can make health and safety laws without the EU ?
