If the UK doesn’t extricate itself from the clutches of the evil EU then very soon Nigel Farage and his Brexit Party colleagues might have to get involved in one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation ever to come from Brussels!

Because believe it of not a process has begun that if ratified, will see the slow-mo-swoosh banned from TV ads for shampoo and other hair-grooming products as soon as 2020.

Legislators have decided the iconic super slow shots, staple of nearly every shampoo ad, are sparking a wave copycat behaviour from women with anything longer than shoulder-length tresses, and there have been some reports of innocent passers-by getting ‘flicked’ and in some cases even ‘tickled’ by out-of-control flowing locks. In one case a woman from Ghent has suffered self-inflicted acute whiplash as she tried to copy a 360 degree twirl she saw in a L’Oreal conditioner ad.

Henri de Graves, spokesman for Pan European Hair Issues, told the BBC’s Newsnight, “This is a serious matter and we must do something about it. There are innocent victims out there suffering mild annoyance and even slight inconvenience, and we see it as a priority that it is stopped as soon as possible.

Meanwhile high-profile shampoo ad stars Cheryl and Ellie Goulding have hit back, slamming the draft proposals as “silly nanny state nonsense” and “itz doonreet bonkaz man woman man pet!”.
