Why the EU sucks part 1

Seeing as I am not going to run out of stories anytime soon, I thought I would start numbering the posts properly and see what number I reach.

The Telegraph reports: Vital medical research is faltering across the European Union as the result of a poorly drafted law that has infuriated scientists.
Prof Richard Gray, the head of Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit, called the directive bureaucracy run mad. "We have not undertaken any new projects for a year because of this. It's the most complete nonsense. Everybody is running around like headless chickens trying to work out how to cope".

The seen and the unseen: perhaps this directive will makes drugs safer and ensure that politicians have their backsides covered (this is seen) but it will delay - curtail their production and therefore harm patients that otherwise might have been helped (the unseen).
