People in Britain must stop flushing their toilets so often, the EU has declared.Brussels wants to impose a new bog standard flush across the continent to reduce water use after splashing out £72,000 on a study into toilet habits in 26 countries.The bizarre edict on cistern size from Eurocrats suggests David Cameron’s hopes of cutting unnecessary regulations has gone down the pan.Already dubbed the ‘euroflush’, Brussels wants to standardise toilet flushes across the EU. It wants toilets to be limited to five litres and urinals one litre.A ‘half-flush’ will be allowed three litres, according to a draft of the policy.Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2480829/Bog-standard...Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on FacebookI'd bet half the flushes are second and third flushes since the toilets don't work. I visit the 'rest rooms' at Denny's every now and then and it usually takes 2 if not 3 flushes and even that doesn't always work....My house has 23 year old toilets of about 3-4 gal flushes.....work most of the time, but sometimes it takes a second flush....My sis up at Lake George has a holding tank...and a toilet that takes 1.5 ....works most of the time....but is expensive to buy and craps out every couple years....and needs fixing. The Nanny State...Soon they'll tax you every time you flush the toilet and it will have a micro chip in it to report back. t.
