Europhile politicians are playing roulette with Britain’s future by threatening to block the Repeal Bill.
The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill will ensure 12,000 or so EU laws and nearly 8,000 regulations currently existing under EU law will become UK law after Brexit. Future parliaments can then amend any unwanted measures as they go along.
Downing Street says failure to pass the Bill would leave Britain lawless post-Brexit.
But arch-Remainer Tim Farron has promised the government they’ll go through “hell” to try and get this passed.
And Keir Starmer, Labour shadow secretary of state for exiting the European Union, said: “We have very serious issues with the Government’s approach, and unless the Government addresses those issues, we will not be supporting the Bill.”
They both want assurances on workers’ rights. Nicola Sturgeon also chimed in, calling it a “naked power grab” that sought to take power away from the Scots.
Steve Baker, Parliamentary Secretary of State at the Department for Exiting the EU, said: “If somebody wrecks this Bill then they will leave the UK statute book in an unworkable condition, and they will have to explain to their electors why they have chosen to do that.”
Proof, if proof were needed, that Remoaners would rather watch Britain burn than see it prosper outside the EU has been handed to us on a plate.
