Updates from the EU

A morning blend of stories ranging from the strange to the maddening:

Car-pool no-no: “a group of French cleaning ladies who organised a car-sharing scheme to get to work are being taken to court by a coach company which accuses them of ‘an act of unfair and parasitical competition’.”
HT: Confessing Evangelical

Corporate raiding: “The European Commission said it had raided offices of Intel Corp and computer makers and sellers across Europe…. Intel is under investigation by the commission’s competition department for alleged unfair trade practices.”

Vitamins to be banned: “Controversial new European laws which could outlaw thousands of vitamin and mineral supplements were upheld by European Court judges.”
