Well bugger me sideways and tickle me pink.

 

Does it actually look like the government are going to finally scrap the poisons legislation?

 

It certainly looks that way, Check out this link!!!!

 

Maybe all of your replies to the public consultation did some good.

 

Maybe you will now be able to buy barium nitrate legitimately as a private individual without signing the poisons register (ahem)

 

Lets hope the explosives precursors legislation ends up with a similar result (OK counting chickens more that a little bit not knowing the exact changes to be made to the poisons legislation).

 

Fingers crossed chaps.

Errrr - does it say that? I hope so.

 

In which case, now we can be sure the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing!

There will still be the tiny matter of getting someone to stock it for sale!

Well lets hope so (i know very premature). A poisons licence is currently required from trading standards to sell schedule 2 poisons. I guess this is what he is refering to with the oven cleaner poisons quote.

 

So maybe it will only apply to schedule 2, but lets hope it is a little more wide ranging than this.


Phew that was close.

LOL, you chaps are reacting like the UK Government has any control over it.

 

The real government at the EU Commission will give the UK Parish Council its orders, and they'll have no choice but to obey.

Unfortunately chaps, on this occasion he is referring to poisons legislation and not the explosives precursor legislation.

 

 

 

The poisons legislation is actually the poisons act 1972 which does not have any influence at all from the European Parliament.

Because some of the chemicals in oven cleaner can be schedule II poisons requiring the seller to have a licence issued by local trading standards.


Phew that was close.

Digger, if national governments still have competence over poisons legislation, it must only be because the EU hasn't got round to it yet. In any case, the explosives precursors directive will make it moot, because without oxidizers you don't need the poisons.

 

I too hope that Britain escapes from the EU before it's too late, for the sake of my family that still lives there. It must have seemed like a good idea in the 1960s, but I can't personally see how membership has benefited Britain in anything remotely proportional to what it's cost. It hasn't even got bad yet - if the 80% cut in electricity consumption is carried through you'll all be eating raw turnip and shivering in the dark, and November 5th will be renamed Edward Heath day after the man who did, successfully, destroy Parliament.

Hi Peret.

 

We Brits are a reserved lot, but there does come a time when you can push us too far. If and when that happens we can and do bite back, and I would not want to be in government then...

I remember Brits did bite back once not so long ago, over gasoline prices. It did my heart good to see it.
