      Yes, it is mostly due to people holding off on new investments while the wait for clarity. That is one of those short term costs.

        With other words, even if your banana is straigth as a stick or is curved so much that it goes in circles, you can sell it in the EU ... but it won't be classified as a class 1 banana
        They got tired of being made fun of and then relaxed the banana regulations a bit but don't pretend they didn't used to have the law until they got shamed into fixing it. It was originally pushed by the French to give priority to bananas from former French colonies in the Caribbean instead of cheaper, better bananas from American companies grown in Latin America.

          Nope:
          ...

          However, a proposal banning straight bananas and other misshapen fruits was brought before the European Parliament in 2008 and defeated

          So, it was proposed, but never made it through the parliament

                  Yeah, I checked. They basically got shamed into changing the banana law in 2008 but it still makes a good example because it really was something the dumb asses did.

                  Cheap bananas American companies ship around the world should be banned. Disgusting :banana:

                    The main reason the economy for most of the United States has sucked for so long (minus a few bubbles which popped) is due to over regulation, high taxes, and a lack of free trade. I mean the USA even bans Kinder Surprise eggs. It is just absurd.

                    I can't believe you've been sucked in by the Euromyths - you really are a totally brain-dead piece of ****!!!

                      There's even a Euromyth about EU regulation of pizza sizes - a subject we all know is very close to your heart!

                        It actually was true prior to the reforms in 2008, fool.

                          How does May justify not revealing the full legal analysis of the Brexit deal to Parliament? Now that the Speaker says the government probably broke the law by not revealing the full analysis, are there any consequences?

                            She finds it embarrassing so she is trying to hide it. She will probably be found in contempt of Parliament but I don't know if that really means anything.

                          I understand the immediate consequences are political costs -- Mays gov is already in a bad position, and this comes in right before an important decision/debate on Brexit, where she'd need all the support she can get, so this does rather undermine her further (below it's said to be more a distraction, not a disaster, tho).

                          Beyond that I found this:

                          Commons Speaker John Bercow said late on Monday there was an "arguable case" that a contempt of Parliament had been committed.

                          However, the government then tabled an amendment to have the issue referred to MPs on the Privileges Committee to investigate whether its response fulfils all its obligations, taking into account any relevant past cases.

                          BBC political correspondent Iain Watson said any defeat over the legal advice would be likely to come as "an unwelcome distraction rather than a disaster" for the prime minister.

                          "While ultimately a parliamentary committee could decide to reprimand or suspend ministers, it's highly likely no sanction would be applied before next week's crucial vote on the Brexit deal," he said.
