Heard in Europe

Baking a meal of it

Heard in Europe spotted an amusing passage in a European Parliament paper yesterday.

Is it a case of Brussels going too far in its quest to regulate every aspect of our lives? Or is it just a spelling mistake?

What is the Basel Committee on Baking Supervision? Shouldn’t it be the Bagel Committee?

Is it a way of cooking the books? Or do they just want to have their cake and eat it too?

Hopefully, the working document’s rapporteur Bernd Lange MEP will clarify.

Fingers crossed he didn’t mean the boring old Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.

That wouldn’t eggs-ite us at all.

NB: Many thanks to those in the Brussels Twittersphere for the use of their puns.
