The tipping point might have been three years ago, when the European Union wanted to ban open bottles of olive oil – that staple of easygoing culinary fun – from restaurant tables across Europe.A referendum Thursday will decide whether Britain remains a part of the 28-nation EU. Steven Blockmans, an analyst with the Center for European Policy Studies, noted that the plan to ban open olive oil dispensers came after many in Britain were already used to mocking perceived EU diktats that would regulate things like the curvature of cucumbers.By that time, the British media had made excessive regulations its favorite cane with which to flog the EU.Prime Minister David Cameron, who is campaigning for Britain to remain in the EU, and governments from the right and left before him, has called on the EU to stop the "red tape".In fact the EU Commission, which proposes rules, has started to roll back on regulation, pretty much ever since the olive oil debacle.
