Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The EU does inspect pig odours, including dung:

https://www.epa.ie/pubs/reports/rese...ts%20Final.pdf
And what is wrong with that? Should the level of smell be uncontrolled?

Oh and BTW...
- Please note the inspection is the responsibility of the Irish (in this case) EPA and not the EU. As usual the EU sets the minimum standard, it is for the national authorities to enforce it (and as ever it is always open to each member to impose tougher standards if they choose). Sending slurry to Brussels? Only in your fantasy world.
- The legislation controls more than just odour. All levels of pollution arising from slurry are controlled, particularly impact on ground water and rivers
- There has been tougher legislation in the last couple of years
- The initial relevant legislation dates back to 1992 (and the initialisation of the legislation therefore well before that, well before your claimed mid 90s Dutch story. Hence my comment the story is a lie.
