European Union Directive No. 456179

In order to bring about further integration with the single European currency, the Euro, all citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland must be made aware that the phrase “Spending a Penny” is not to be used after 31 December 2014.

From this date onwards, the correct term will be “Euronating”.

If it's an EU directive, wouldn't a better description be "pi**ing it all away"?

I am sorry to be controversial but Ian has misinterpreted EU directive 456179.

What it in fact refers to is that due to the ongoing financial situation across the EU and in order to fund further support for many lost causes nobody will be allowed to spend a penny after 31st December 2014. However, an ammendment designed to prevent offense to certain minority goups means that the ban on "spending a penny" will be brought forward to 30 November 2014 in order to prevent money being spent on electricity bills for festival lights (formally known as Christmas lights) during December.
