If instead of putting a British minister to sell the snakeoil and receive the blame, they actually said "it's because EU", we would be quite surprised at how little the British government actually does. There's a directive behind most things they do. I haven't looked but I wouldn't be surprised if they're rushing out new alcohol limits and pushing a fat food tax just because a directive or similar has come out and they want to claim that they're taking the initiative and the rest will follow.
