London - (Lactating Mess): Maternity bra manufacturers have won a critical High Court ruling to delay the introduction of compulsory breast milk grading bar codes on all neonatal mammary support garments.
The government initiated the 'Gold Top' action via a Food Standards Agency lawsuit after EU regulations demanded all new nursing bras are fitted with electronic tags.
These detect the presence of alcohol, prescription drugs and illicit narcotics, nicotine, inflammable adhesives and an array of dodgy substances linked to incest-conceived babies and/or future Whore on Terra suspects.
Today's ruling means that £2 billion-worth of bar code reading equipment installed by the government in pubs, petrol stations, supermarkets and municipal parks must now be mothballed.
"It's just as well really," a Whitehall source commented today, "because we lost the NHS master disks that read the data somewhere in the HMRC cock-up last year."
Gorgon Brown is foaming at the mouth.
