Spanish MEPs—leave our wonky fruit’n’veg alone!

Dear Ed, SPANISH MEPs are trying to get wonky fruit and veg banned again! This could spell misery for farmers whose produce may not fare well at a beauty pageant, but whose quality and flavour are enjoyed and savoured by millions

Dear Ed,

SPANISH Members of the European Parliament are trying to get wonky fruit and veg banned again!

This could spell misery for farmers whose produce may not fare well at a beauty pageant, but whose quality and flavour are enjoyed and savoured by millions.

The original rules were the butt of jokes for the European Commission and I thought common sense had finally prevailed when they relaxed the rules last July.

But if the Spanish MEPs get their way, we could see the re-introduction of the absurd bendy banana rules.

Needless to say, I will be opposing the move. At the end of the day we should be letting people use their common sense-and telling the Spanish to leave this hot potato alone.
