#1 Cutting the effectiveness of vacuum cleaners will only mean it takes longer to clean, it won't save a single watt of power.

#2 Kind of limiting the capacity of toilets - only to have people flush twice.

#3 Well, they've clearly succeeded in one way: the EU is now staffed with a majority of dim bulbs.

#4 This could be the first EU idea that doesn't suck.

#5 Perhaps the Euros wouldn't be having a currency crisis if they employed fewer bureaucrats.

Oh, what I am saying...

#6 Just wait until they limit the power of kettles to save energy on boiling water!

#7 I always thought their water saving washers and low energy dryers made a joke out of doing the laundry.

#8 Typical Euro-sh*t,
Instead of researching new energy sources they will end up using candles and eating raw meat to save energy.
Anyhow who needs vacuum cleaners in the caves of Eurabia

#9 Muggsy Glink you da man!. Now kettles are a different issue. Britain will be quite putout if they can't have a proper cup of tea.

#10 Ah, yes. The power of significant figures. That is real leadership.

#11 The EU elite environmentalists seem to be rather confused as to what filling a vacuum means in governing. Perhaps it's the free maid service they enjoy. More likely it's the algore double flush to save water toilet syndrome.

#12 Next steps will be rolling blackouts and rationing of fuels of all kinds.

#13 Anyone remember the 'efficient washers' that the US government imposed. First year out, Consumers Report said they not only failed to meet prior washer cleaning, but in some cases made the laundry dirtier. Under those conditions just repairing the old one was a better deal than buying a new one.
