NOW EU TO BAN HIGH POWER VACUUM CLEANERS

First they banned incandescent light bulbs, now they are to ban powerful vacuum cleaners as set out here. Clearly this will only make a miniscule difference to CO2 emissions, but it is still an imposition on the public. Unless there is a show of resistance our leaders will take it as a green light to take more radical measures. If they are to keep to their plan to de-carbonise the country there will be much more stringent measures to come. I wonder what might come next, patio heaters, Christmas decorations?

UPDATE:
Here as expected is an article containing a list of other appliances being considered for the same treatment.

That does not makes sense, at all, I mean why they want to do it anyways?.
