Following the passing of a European Union directive. any farmer with land that slopes steeper than 15% - say, in the Lake District or in the Scottish Highlands - will have to put his cows in nappies. From Richard Littlejohn -
We knew the EU had it in for cows - blaming them for non-existent global warming - but this latest flatulent outburst from Brussels (geddit?) provides even more proof that we should leave now, before we do ourselves a mischief. Which would incur savage penalties if we're hiking up Snowdon at the time - unless we're wearing nappies.
