The Risk to Your Rights: EU Retained Law Bill Briefing
October 21, 2022
Click here for a suggested letter to your MP about this Bill here!
The EU Retained Law Bill rips up rights and rules upon which Britain has relied for decades. It not only deletes thousands of pieces of legislation, with no guarantee of any alternative, it enshrines in law the Conservative dogma that regulation is always anti-business, and breaks promises that Brexit would allow the UK to “go beyond” EU law, by preventing Ministers from replacing EU legislation with anything that offers more rights and protections.
This will affect over 300 different policy areas - from the rules around sports on television, to environmental protections, consumer rights and employment protections as well as airline safety rules. The Bill also gives Ministers powers to do this all at once, without consulting anybody, and to avoid parliamentary scrutiny of any replacements causing further chaos for millions. You can find here a link to a suggested letter to your MP about this issue asking them to oppose this legislation.

A Message From Neil Kinnock, Anna Turley & Giampi Alhadeff
December 30, 2020
These are sad times.
All of us in the LME believe that the European Union has been, and is, a great historic force for peace and progress. We understand that, as a human construct, it is not perfect. But we see our values shared and represented there - internationalism, freedom, partnership, co-operation, friendship, tolerance, and social justice are its practical objectives, applied in a community of law. We all agree the rebuilding of the UK’s relations with our nearest neighbours, the world’s largest trading block, and this highly successful union is crucial to the future health, security and prosperity of the UK.
