    Stop asking questions and have a read yourself, it's in there.

    iii) Class IIThis class covers bananas which do not qualify for inclusion in the higher classes but satisfy the minimum requirements specified above.The following defects of the fingers are allowed, provided the bananas retain their essential characteristics as regards quality, keeping quality and presentation:
    defects of shape,
    skin defects due to scraping, rubbing or other causes, provided that the total area affected does not cover more than 4 cm2 of the surface of the finger.
    Under no circumstances may the defects affect the flesh of the fruit.

    And the regulation wasn't revised, a number of regulations were brought under one.
    Just further evidence of their stupid and pointless mindset…. 'shape' is NOT a defect.....some bananas , despite you not being able to see it, are straight - others , (most), are bent....to a variety of degrees. There is no natural curve 'standard', they vary considerably - and differentiating between those that are straight or greatly curved is absolute nonsense - that is merely an aesthetic quality, and bears no relation whatsoever to either taste or nutritional value .
    The EU have rightly been condemned for issuing such a ludicrous regulation, which has no practical consequences whatsoever.

    Nothing was banned as you said, abnormal bending just dropped the fruit into a different class. ou could always buy any class that you wanted. If your local supermarket didn't stock that then that's a UK problem, not a EU law one.
    I remember a Jamie Oliver programme on about bendy vegetables, carrots / parsnips etc and how they had mountains of them left over as retailers (***** etc) wouldn't buy them. This is a consumer driven attitude.

    Really Gerry.....well if the banana can have ANY shape, how come you are referring to a shape 'defect'?

    For yours, (and the EU's) edification Gerry, there are 6 types of bananas ….

    That law still stands today, where's the mountains of all these misshaped bananas, your picking one little thing and making a mountain out of it. I see bananas on the shelf with plenty of curvature, their not banned which is what you said.

    I think the word you are missing from your sentence is "hope".

    You " hope " boris is about to ask for an extension. Someone somewhere is going to be making a massive climb down over the next few weeks findus , and it will be interesting to see who it actually is.

    If johnson does actually ask for an extension , he will take such a political fall after all he has said it will be impossible for him to recover.

    On top of that , it will be the final nail in the coffin and final humiliation of the british , and we may as well do away with voting for the monkeys in westminster and vote for the organ grinders in brussells who hold all the power.

    The uk will be a laughing stock.

    Imagine the next time westminster issues demands to the iranians? The ayatollahs will retort have you asked your masters in brussells for permission to speak to us?

    Germany v england in the world cup. The germans will be singing you are just a small region of europe!

    It will be a humiliation unparralled in english history over the last thousand years since the days when that wee french guy sailed across the channel and conquered england.

    Bananas will indeed be symbolic with england in the way they are symbolic with banana republics....

    The hope is that someone will have dug a ditch outside number 10.
