Leaving the EU should stop most of the daft, expensive legislation which this site was set up to do. Most of the ideas proposed on this site would be impossible to repeal because the are binding on our government. Euro diktat has precedence over UK law in many cases.
Most of our legislation is now directed from Brussels. The government you elect here in the UK can rarely do anything about laws, regulations and bureacracy from the EU. Most of these things have been created after lobbying by special interest groups or big business. They have the deep pockets to employ specialist PR agents who – at best – wine and dine the EU bureacrats.
Even where the legislations sounds to be positive, it is usually at enormous cost.
Every year, thousands of new rules and regulations are published producing a monumental nuisance for almost every organisation in the country.
Some we know are EU-inspired, but other laws are less well known as EU in origin. In fact most of our legislation comes from over the water. But the majority of EU laws and regulations are expensive to implement and monitor, and ineffective in not producing the intended effect; some are harmful, and of course some actually useful.
Why is this idea important?
So in one fell swoop we can repeal most of the red tape. Of course, any laws where we do agree we can keep. Just the expensive muddle-headed laws can be dumped.
Oh – and it should save billions in reduced administration, and of course we would not have to pay for the CAP, MEP's expenses, eurowaste, euro-propaganda etc. Our UK net contribution is set to soar over the next few years thanks to Tony Bliar's failed bid to become EU President.
