“To present this as a deregulation exercise is a cynical charade. To present it as a Cameron initiative “backed by Barroso” is to perpetrate a lie. 

“But, as always, not one journalist in the entire legacy media has the wit to say so. Feed the hacks drivel and they will dutifully report it.

But all things must pass.  Eventually, even ISO inspectionism.
