The European Union forces identical rules upon all member nations, often to ridiculous extremes. In their latest round of idiocy, the European Court of Justice has decreed that being fat is a disability, and employers will be required to provide reinforced chairs for overweight employees. As well, due to their disability, they are to be afforded priority parking.
Lawyers warned that companies face big bills as excessively obese employees could sue if they were not looked after.
Of course they could.
Europeans seem to have developed the odd belief that everybody is entitled to whatever they want, and it's up to governments and employers to ensure that their wishes are granted.
