What a fantastic idea

How brilliant. Don't fight the now embarrassingly flawed claims approach, just pass it, then work on an impact assessment once retailers have been prosecuted and the industry is in chaos and rapidly shrinking. I think we can all explain the impact assessment conclusion long before it arrives...sadly by that point I expect there will be very little small to medium participants - and with the possible threat of prosecution of shop staff even in larger participants are we seriously heading down that road simply to save an argument in the gridlocked EU?
