UK found guilty of dirty air breach by EU court
04/03/2021 | news | science | 1,192
The UK is found guilty of “systematically and persistently” breaching air pollution limits.
The EU fancy themselves as the world’s policeman.

Dictating and domineering everyone they feel fit.

So glad the UK is standing up to them over Northern Ireland etc.

We need to get CANZUK nations and the USA to confront them too.

Damn little tyrants they are!

Crasie 15:49 "Yes, but we imported them."

They were imported off the back of a huge LIE from these eu manufacturers, is it any wonder that the sensible (majority) Brit, voted to leave this quagmire of LIES.

And they proved the point without doubt recently, last week it was confiscating GB lorry drivers packed lunches, this week banning GB soil, which is (apparently) incompatible with eu soil?
Oh yes, the truth about the EUSSR is now shining through.

Look at these boards, they were nothing but a pro Remain echo chamber. Now, Leavers are taking over.

UK Gov Needs to man UP or the public can just boycot every EU item, or Just tariff everything !
Plenty of ways to pull that arrogant lot down a few pegs!

UK Gov needs to Wake UP !
We can do that. Don't buy anything from continental Europe.
