The name “English Channel” is not under threat from the EU

Suggestions from some papers over the Easter holiday that “EU officials” want to change the name of the English Channel to the “Anglo-French Pond” are as untrue as they are ridiculous. That people writing and quoted in these stories believe that the EU could even consider such a thing demonstrates the poor level of knowledge about both the organisation’s decision-making process and the limits as to what subjects are discussed at EU level.
