There have always been hundreds of crazy rumours about the EU. Entire industries are busy weakening the EU with the most absurd allegations: it forbids children to inflate balloons, it orders kilts to be women’s clothing, or it forces fishermen to wear hairnets.

We start today with a video series on all EU-related topics. Sven Niles begins by explaining the European Commission! Enjoy watching!
