Need one say more?

The EU explained as thus:
Pythagoras' theorem - 24 words.
Lord's Prayer - 66 words.
Archimedes' Principle - 67 words.
10 Commandments - 179 words.
Gettysburg address - 286 words.
US Declaration of Independence - 1,300 words.
US Constitution with all 27 Amendments - 7,818 words.
EU regulations on the sale of cabbage - 26,911 words.

Which gives a small indication of how I intend to vote come the revolution referendum.

I am glad I am not a cabbage salesman in the UK!

So ... is that JUST cabbages or does it cover ALL brassica?

Sorry, Sarah, I haven't the foggiest idea. I can't speak for the accuracy of the figures either, as they were given to me by somebody else. But remembering the proposals re bananas and cucumbers it sounds about right!
