It is mainly about US multinationals applying different standards to their products in Eastern and Western Europe

Moreover, both interpretations are in accordance with the EU regulations, so the debate being raised is whether the EU regulations need to be stricter to reduce this variation. And we all know how supportive the Leavers are of more regulation from the EU. A strong hint of racism, I think, to object to the variation and object to the means to reduce the variation.

But, to stress, both interpretations are to the current EU standards, which are in many cases higher than from outside the EU.
