Myth: Brussels is set to produce a standard Euro condom, whilst refusing to implement the subsidiarity principle so that Member States can take into account the different national charactersistics of the male organ. The resultant compromise is simply not large enough to house British assets.

Response: Any standardisation work in the area of condoms concentrates on quality and not on
length. In 1991 the European Commission did request CEN, the European standards body, to come up with European safety standards for condoms. However these were always intended to be voluntary, and as such derogations are really not necessary.
