EU postponing legislation to limit power of toasters until after the referendum

The EU is holding back new regulations cutting the power of toasters, lightbulbs and boilers and regulating the standby modes of electronic items including mobile phones until after the EU referendum.

EU officials are worried that their continual interference in every aspect of our lives will boost the campaign to leave the EU and are holding back legislation that they think will be unpopular. They have already decided to hold back a €20bn budget increase, new guidelines on freedom of movement and EU-wide accession to the ECHR that will override our own human rights legislation until after the referendum.
