EU Ban! Outlawed! Never mind that Sir James Dyson, a great British inventor if there ever was one, is pro-ban, claiming that
“It’s a myth that bigger is better. Dyson has never made a vacuum cleaner of more than 1,400 watts because it is intelligent engineering that leads to high cleaning performance, not energy-thirsty motors. The motor cap is a sensible part of the upcoming regulation from Europe, as it can drive investment in efficient technology.”
Have a look at a google search for news articles on this. You’d swear someone in Brussels was coming up with this stuff just to piss Britian off. Rest of Europe? Yeah, we’ll take more efficient hoovers, thanks.
