Milk of Magnesia not safe from European bureaucrats

We all know our rulers over in Brussels take great joy in meddling in our everyday lives, whether it is dictating the shape of fruit sold in supermarkets or banning insurance companies from selling cheaper car insurance for young women, but it appears now that not even Milk of Magnesia is safe from busy bureaucrats.

Milk of Magnesia has been a trusted remedy for well over 100 years and many people around the world confidently keep it in their cabinets.

Brussels is making up the rules as they go along to justify its own existence and this ban on stocks of Milk of Magnesia will put the remedy firmly in the hands of black market traders.
