ENOUGH! EUROPE and food scandals - a long and inglorious chapter in the history of the free market. This time it's dioxin, a mega-poison. How did it get there? Is there more? No one has a precise answer to these questions. Brussels has shown excessive zeal in regulating every kind of nonsense, from the size of apples to the curvature of bananas. Yet poisoned food and animal fodder are sloshing around Europe without hindrance. What a testimony to the incompetence of Brussels' creative regulators.

ALL THE ingredients are assembled to make Chicken a la dioxine a serious European matter. We don't even know the extent of the contamination. Chicken a la dioxine comes under the same umbrella as uncertainties about Creutzfeldt Jakob disease - also linked to a worry about productivity pushed to the absolute maximum. Faced with this, the European governments have an urgent need for transparency. Without a certain degree of transparency they will incur unpleasant investigations and responsibilities.
