EU press releases regurgitated

On Sunday the Independent reported that the EU is "considering" a £1bn fund to set up plants to use greenhouse gas to help recover North Sea oil, which, the report says, could extend their productive life by 50 years and "add £60bn to UK coffers".

If it were commercially viable, the oil companies would be doing it already. Sounds like a subsidy to me. 

The Sunday Times (£) reported that UK railway companies may face an investigation by the European Commission over the dumping of lavatory waste on the tracks and in railway stations.

Yeah well - that's a door the Eurocrats could not push open if ours were a competently governed country.
Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.
