The EU - 2 things this week that should worry you!

Please go here to see the first one, what an amazing short-sighted law.

You say, hey Recht, that will stop Apple, won't it!  Yes, it will; from innovating, from spending ANY money on something new or interesting, as now, if all of its competitors don't have the same pieces of kit, they can get the good ole EU to ban it.  Right?

But let's take this to another level.  If in the future when everything has to be standardised, who actually agrees to what is the standard? 

Say for example, Apple and Microsoft, as they are the big players, basically think that Apple's Lightning charger (which is what this law is aimed at), decide that Lightning is the new standard, and that USB-C or USB-D (presumably) are inferior; who makes this decision? 

And if this decision is taken, surely we will ALL have to shell out for a new & very expensive Lightning connector -  This could and probably WILL happen.

Be careful what you wish for . . .

On another Euro thing, and one that has probably NOT been reported on (Hat Tip to the great, Mahyar Tousi from England), there will possibly be a Vote of Confidence (not another for Boris Johnson!) on the present President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, who has held this post since 2019.

Apparently, the Belgium born Kraut, has been a bad girl, and the apparatchiks in Brussels who wish for an even more European super state, want her "raus"!

It appears that, with her assistance, a huge amount of Geld was sent to Poland, despite the Poles not completely playing ball with the EC and some of its laws / rules; with one of the three signatories to the vote, being the despicable former Belgian Prime Minister, Guy Verhofstadt.(above).  

Another revolting pos lawyer, who for the last 40 years, has never really had a job, and is to the left of Chairman Mao.

This will certainly be interesting on just who votes For and Against.

Stay tuned.
