Brexit, toasters, and teakettles

From May comes this report of the EU postponing a crackdown on toaster and kettle designs for fear of fueling Leave sentiment among British voters. Now I suppose it’s ban away [Telegraph, earlier on Brexit]


  • To see what got the Brits upset, Google “Hitler tea kettle.”

    “We will fight them on the beaches…”

  • If they ban our kettles, the entire economy of Yorkshire will collapse!

    Its a plot I tell you!

  • On a more serious note, how do they expect to make kettles more efficient?
    100% of the power put into kettles gets converted into heat already unless something goes wrong with them!
