I just wrote a lengthy reply to Banjo, however it disappeared once I pressed preview and cannot be bothered to start it all over again.http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/w ... d-10130793
The Bill repeals the European Communities Act of 1972. All laws, directions, regulations and rulings made in Brussels will be transferred into UK law.
Brexit Secretary David Davis revealed details of the Great Repeal Bill, which will hand the Government powers to rewrite up to 12,000 EU laws as they are transferred into British legislation.
None of us voted for the massive changes in legislation needed, we couldn't because no party gave any idea as to what new legislation they would implement should an out vote win.
I believe no vote on Brexit should have been allowed until each side had explained what legislation they would instate to replace that which already exists, concerning the large issues that will effect the electorate ;workers rights, etc.
The fact the Tories could carry out massive changes to our constitutional law carte blanche and layed out in 50 pages of a white bill; without an electoral mandate is horrifying. Although having said that the white paper seems to indicate that the UK will mainly adopt EU law.
Oh and Banjo " EU migration may rise some years after Brexit, Davis tells Question Time - Politics live" https://www.theguardian.com/politics/bl ... itics-live
Do I trust the caliber of those negotiating the exit? or those responsible for rewriting legislation? Like heck I do.
If the general public was fed up with the way the country has gone over the past 30 years or so; it will be nothing compared to what will hit them in the next 7.
Forgive them for they know not what they have done; cannot be applied to Cameron, Johnson or Farage.
