The EU legislates in minute detail on every aspect of trade and commerce. It cannot resist the urge to intervene and thinks that more rules and regulations improve business. Drawing up laws that cover every national variation inevitably makes the rules lengthy, complex, difficult to interpret and largely irrelevant. The rules on coffins in hot climates, for example, are not relevant in icy ones.

The EU constitution in the form of European Union treaties must be amended so that EU laws, rules and regulations are only valid so far as they are the very minimum necessary for international free trade in goods and services.

Business should be free to ignore excessive regulation without fear or years of delay while court cases drag on.

Why is this idea important?

EEC regulation is strangling business and destroying jobs. Unless the fundamentals change this will only get worse.
