The EU has set up a myth busting page, which is a very good idea. While I think the EU has some fundamental flaws (lack of democracy, involved in two many areas) it is fair to say they get blamed for some stuff unfairly. So far they have blogged:
- EU laws do not prevent churches from taking steps to deal with bat infestations
- The EU does not “blacklist” beaches: EU laws do not prevent anyone from swimming anywhere, but who wants to swim in poo?
- Lack of UK action not EU rules responsible for UK Jam manufacturer being in a sticky situation
