Address Government’s limited power to block or repeal EU Regulations

Address the problem of the Government's limited power to block new EU Regulations.

Protect and Restore our Sovereign Rights. 

Address the problem of the Government's limited power to repeal existing EU Regulations.

More time and attention should be given to negotiate and release our nation from the Red Tape that the EU has imposed, so that our elected government has more room to manoeuvre in introducing new domestic regulations.

Repeal act thet got us into EU.

If we leave the EU we will be able to run our own country again without the huge cost of EU membership.

We cannot afford the fees or the restrictions on our business and lives.

Freedom to rule ourselves. Abolish foreign laws!

Simply revert to the British being governed by the British.

Put on trial for sedition anyone who has assisted the  transfer of  British sovreignty to foreign powers.

Fine the guilty, take back all their ill-gotten gains and inducements.

Only hang the traitors who persist.

Repeal All European Union Treaties

All European Treaties (Rome, Maastricht, Amsterdam, Lisbon etc……). These treaties have removed our democratic sovereignty over a range of areas and transferred it to an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels thus limited our right of national self determination and thus our civil liberties. Eliminating these treaties would restore the supremacy of parliament and restore these rights and liberties.

Leave the EU – that should stop most of the daft, expensive legislation

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.

Repeal the 1972 Treaty of Rome Act.

I am sure that if one adds together all suggestions submitted to Nick Clegg on unessary laws, most of these will have their origin in Brussels. No British Government can do anything about them unless they repeal the treaty of Rome Act.

EU Referendum

As we are to be given a vote next year for a change to our voting system we need an extra box on the voting paper stateing "EU IN OR OUT" let us have the referendum we were promised  let the electorate decide what is best for us, not a bunch of unelected bureaucrats ordering us about.

Repeal the 1967 European Communities Act

In order to remove the bulk of the legislation that ordinary people see as repressive, irrelevant, economically damaging and plain bloody-minded from our lives, we have to remove the Act that binds us to Brussels, the source of 70% of our laws.

Prohibit parliament from surrendering its legislative sovereignty

All international treaties in some way limit the power of our own government.

Some treaties, however, limit the legislative freedom of the UK. Such treaties should not be allowed to be permanent or irreversible. (For instance, wording such as "an ever closer union" should not be permitted in a treaty).

Any treaty binding parliament's legislative sovereignty should be subject to ratification and re-ratification in a referendum. In other words, parliament must ask permission to temporarily cede its sovereignty.

Such referenda should happen at least once per parliament, since no parliament should be able to bind a subsequent parliament.

Amend or repeal 1971 EEC Act

Too much sovereignty has been given away to the unelected in Brussels. I don't see why we should bow down to laws made by unelected commssioners, which are rubber-stamped without proper scrutiny. I am not some little Englander, and I understand the need for peace in Europe of course but this has gone quite far enough. They are destroying the essence of each nation and burdening us and our businesses with unnecessary paperwork and laws, and that friends is a bigger crime.

Sovereignty needs to be reaffrimed in an amended 1971 EEC Act as being held supremely by the UK people and that the UK parliament is ultimately in control of all law making in this land. Note the 1668/9 Bill of Rights already says this (this is a treaty between Monarch and people and cannot be merely repealed by Parliament by the way).

European Communities Act 1972

The chances of the political elite repealing this Act are zilch, but the DPM did ask and it'll be fun to see how many suggestions like this are dispensed with as 'unpracticable', 'unworkable', 'too difficult', etc.

Talking of which, if repealing the Act which underpins our subordination to EU law and micro-management is so difficult after a mere 37 years of membership (I think we joined the year after the Act was passed…), how come it was so easy to override the previous 900 years of our legal and constitutional history when passing the Act?
