Mike Nattrass MEP, ridiculous law.
The Sun today (Wednesday, January 6), reported that French PM Francois Fillon is supporting the introduction of the new law which could be implemented across Europe and possibly in Britain if it is deemed to be a success.
But UKIP West Midlands MEP Mike Nattrass said Britain and indeed the French should not implement the law which he believes would be impossible to enforce.
Last December, the Lisbon Treaty was ratified which in turn expanded the EU’s law-making powers and ability to restrict the power the UK Parliament.
Mr Nattrass fears if the EU gets involved Britain could be forced into implementing the law being considered in France.
He said: “Of course people should treat each other with total respect and any form of abuse should not be tolerated but can you imagine what could happen if we were forced into introducing this law?
“The police already have stretched resources and could be inundated with calls. How would allegations of rudeness be proved? We should not put this indecent proposal to bed!
“What if the EU, which makes 75 per cent of our law, decides to get involved in this issue? The EU could force us to implement this law and the situation is simply ridiculous.”
