EU poking its nose into our ears

UKIP MEP for the West Midlands euroregion, Mike Nattrass, has a mention in the Coventry Telegraph today regarding the European Empire's plans to impose limits on the amount of noise phones and MP3 players can produce.

The European Empire has decided that listening to music at 89dB for five hours a week for five years can lead to permanent hearing loss and manufacturers should therefore be made to limit their devices so that they can't produce loud noises.

Heavy traffic produces around 90dB of noise so if the European Empire is successful in limiting the volume of MP3 players and phones, they will be unusable if there is traffic nearby.

Mike Nattrass said "Again, the EU is poking its nose in where it does not belong ... our ears".

This is yet another example of the EU wanting to control almost every aspect of our lives.

The EU is trying to destroy our parliament at Westminster, and replace it with an EU federal parliament based in Brussels.
