BREAST NOT BEST, SAYS EU
Beer drinkers in Germany are frothing at the mouth over EU plans to make Bavarian barmaids cover up. The aim of the proposed EU directive is to protect them from the sun's harmful rays. But the so-called "tan ban" has been condemned as absurd by breweries, politicians - and the barmaids. Bavarian barmaids typically wear a a costume known as a dirndl - a dress and apron with a tight, low-cut top enhanced by a short white blouse. Under the EU's Optical Radiation Directive, employers must ensure staff who work outdoors cover up against the risk of sunburn. Bavarian bar keepers have been told the dirndl will have to be replaced as it does not provide adequate protection. They face heavy fines if they fail to comply with the new legislation, which goes before MEPs next month.
