Have those wingnuts over in Brussels completely lost it? From Jonah at the Corner
Pipe down! Brussels slaps a noise order on heart of Scotland
THEIR high-pitched skirl has put fear into the hearts of Scotland’s enemies and sent sensitive tourists reaching for the cotton wool.
Now, however, the bagpipes are to be quietened by an edict from Brussels.
From this month, pipers must adhere to strict volume limits or risk breaking European Union health and safety laws. Bands have been ordered to tone down or wear earplugs to limit noise exposure to 85 decibels.
Typically, a pipe band played at full volume peaks at 122 decibels outdoors, noisier than the sound of either a nightclub or a chainsaw, which rises to 116 decibels.
Have you ever heard such nonsense!
Here is a short vid of the Princess' favorite Pipe Band......The BunkerHill Pipe Band!
