Democracy in the UK...

Here we go...

A leading Tory credited with inspiring Brexit has urged Boris Johnson to cull a raft of EU consumer and worker protections, now the UK has the freedom to act.



Safeguards for the use of data, pay and conditions, GM foods, hedge funds, dangerous chemicals and the disposal of environmentally-damaging vehicles should all be binned, Daniel Hannan said.



“Change is coming. To succeed outside the EU, we need to be fitter, leaner and more globally engaged,” said the former MEP, who has just been made a Conservative peer.



The call comes after the prime minister vowed to start breaking free from EU rules, now the post-Brexit transition period has is over, saying “we have nothing to fear”.



Nevertheless, Mr Hannon, in a website article, called for the scrapping of:



* the Temporary Workers’ Directive – which guarantees agency staff receive equal pay and conditions with employees in the same business.

* the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – that gives individuals control over their personal data and limits its transfer to other countries.

* the ban on products made from genetically modified (GM) crops – potentially allowing US food derived that way into the UK, as part of a future trade deal.

* the REACH Directive – to outlaw chemicals linked to health problems including cancer, thyroid disease, hormone disruption and slow development.

* the End of Life Vehicles Directive – to achieve environmentally-friendly dismantling and recycling, with targets for the reuse of vehicles and their components.

Saw a column today on the NS talking about what Farage would pivot to next. His anti-lockdown schtick is quickly going down the toilet as more and more people find that they've lost a loved one due to Covid, or they've been directly affected by it (and a vaccine is coming). That's only getting worse as we hit some of our worst death configures ever combined with the estimation that 1 in 50 have politics.

Best guess is some sort of backlash against green policies, anti-Greta anti-cyclist pro driving everywhere attempt. Something that will rile enough people up but not be a misinterpretation of the way things are going politically in the same way lockdown was.

Farage is just a right-wing opportunist that will say whatever he needs to to get attention, votes and - more importantly - money.

Anyone who supports him has no moral compass.

"Project Fear" turns out to be "Project Reality".

Fuck 'em. They were warned and voted for this shit-show.

Won't affect me.

Let them eat sovereignty!

Hilarious how quickly all of this is unravelling. Now ’tariff free’ doesn’t actually mean ‘tariff free’.......

Well most peculiar as our glorious leader had trumpeted a tariff free deal !
So tariff free is not tariff free.
No sea border in Irish Sea is a sea border in Irish Sea.
Full control of fishing is not control of fishing.
Australia deal does not even include Australia.

Gosh. It's almost as if every word he says is a complete lie.

'He [Bain] added: “We need a solution which genuinely reflects the needs of UK-EU supply and distribution chains for goods.” '

I'd suggest being a member of a single market and customs union.

Oh...
We've lost about 6 billion quid a day's worth of share trading from the London market since 1st January. None of which is exceptionally important apart from the 5,000 or so jobs lost (although I suspect not many will weep for them) what is important is that this revenue is taxable...

Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey told U.K. lawmakers on Wednesday that he didn’t expect quick equivalence decisions from the EU, but insisted the country should not become “a rule taker” by mimicking EU regulations just for the sake of obtaining an access to European markets.


Professionals of the City of London quoted by Financial News said they didn’t expect an agreement on financial services to be struck before a few years, the time for EU authorities to assess how much of London’s business will move to the continent.

The EU seeks to repatriate business and jobs, and London wants to keep its financial might without having to abide by EU regulations.

I think you’ll find Barrons is a far left organisation conspiring against THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE*.
