    EU legislation clearly does not allow the use of dyed diesel for leisure vessels and Member States have to conform to this.
    Er......Mr Belgian person.....What about Ireland?

    Diesel from there is dyed (green), and is used by leisure vessels.

    And how exactly will that help UK based recreational boaters visiting Belgium ?

    I don't know what your all grumbling about. We are in the EU and should apply all the rules including health and saftey. We should all wear hard hats when sailing, all winches should be covered by a cage, industrial leather gloves should be worn to save injury. Six foot netting and warning signs to be put up around the decks, scaffolding to be errected to go any higher than a foot and make sure you have been on all the courses first.

    In France you see EU directives being applied all the time. I even saw a non french made car seven weeks ago, I am sure the marking up by 400 percent on British foods is perfectly fair. There boat building has never beeen subsidised by the goverment. I am so happy that to the rest of Europe a Flat playing field is verticle.

    This is far too sensible a solution for the numpties in government to adopt.
    I may be wrong, but I'm not confused.

    I fail to see how that's his problem.

    Ireland is a fully paid up member of the EU....therefore they are flouting the legislation that he is saying all EU members are complying with....

    Short sighted??
    The Red diesel debate is interesting. It blows the usual ill informed assertion that only the UK applies EU rules right out of the water. It is us in the UK that are interpreting the rules to suit oursleves this time so it seems very two faced to carp on when someone else applies the rules rather than bowing to verted intrestes as the UK Goverment has done in the face of the RYA red diesel campaign.
    Those little englanders who think our PM did the right thing last year should do some thinking. The Euro is already too big to fail. The Eurozone is already too big to fail (a bit like the Banks a couple of years ago) The pound is not too big to fail (remember the tory ERM debacle) We would be much better as part of a currency that is too big to fail.
    Not all EU red tape is bad - our beaches would still be knee deep in sh*t wre it not for the EU regs.
