I see that our EU overlords, in the shape of Euro Nanny, have decided to ban domestic oven gloves and insist on people using professional oven gloves that can withstand 200 degrees.
All very well and health conscious. However, the stringent tests needed to ensure that Euro oven gloves meet the safety standards will put up the prices of such articles by as much as 20%.
The result will be that people will simply resort to using teatowels etc, hardly an improvement in the health and safety of the kitchen!
In other news, Euro Nanny also wants all washing-up gloves sold across the EU to be tested and then certified to prove that they can withstand “basic detergents”.
Meanwhile, the economies of the Eurozone fall apart as the ECB pursues its harebrained "one size fits all" monetary policy.
