Bendy banana ban here to stay

A FYLDE Euro MP has gone bananas.

Liberal Democrat Chris Davies says that much ridiculed EU rules on bendy fruits are here to stay.

The EU banned the importing of bananas of 'an abnormal shape' leading Eurosceptics to criticise the union for meddling and call for an end to the law.

However, Mr Davies says the regulations simply provide quality bananas and says the law is here to stay.

He said: "People think that bananas are just bananas.

"But there's a huge difference between a long, straight one from Costa Rica and a short, curvy one from Cyprus or the Canaries.

"It may not matter much to some people, but it matters a lot to supermarkets buying bananas by the million.

"They want to know what's in the box."
