I read quickly some parts from this EU directive. It concers medicinal product industry, the licence to sell medicine, and many kinds of matter. I did not found any animal name, not any medicin and not such a thing, that it is ridigulous letter handle.
We have in EU new Eastern European countries, which "tru life" is not like law says. Estonian have passed their electrical counters and water counters. They do not have money for normal life.
Also directives command to follow equal methods, that no country can take commercial advantage against others with their own regulations.
In Finland people tell huge stories how EU is stupid. They are stories that no one can coltrol such things they tell. EU has brought Middle European principles into use. -- Some said that EU obey that you cannot go to the forest any more, heheheheh. Who has time to follow every person in Finland? And for what reason? heheheheh
You must remember that EU was made for commercial fight against USA and Asia mighty ecomic power. It is not organisation which main duty is to copulate with comma.
I think that Brittish are again inventing their Urban Legends. Brittish humour, BUUU
