A senior EU official has been forced to step down amid claims he may have been implicated in a honey-for-influence scandal surrounding a pesticide ban.
The top Eurocrat is said to have met with a lobbyist who goes under name of Mr Sanders, acting on behalf of the honey industry.
EU antifraud officials say two meetings took place in the hundred-acre wood.
"Mr Sanders" is understood to have told a honey company he could get his former friend and now EU health commissioner Christopher Robin to ban the pesticide, which scientists say is harmful to bees.

There's no evidence any of the honey was intended as a sweetener or spread-payment for commissioner Robin.
But fuckit, they fired him anyway...
