The EU Retained Law Bill will delete thousands of pieces of legislation on which British life has depended for decades. It is now entering the parliamentary process - sign up now for the Labour Movement for Europe's updates on this legislation and how you can join with us fighting the Government using the cover of Brexit to rip up our rights.
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.
On Tuesday 25th October Parliament will debate Liz Truss's Brexit legislation which will delete thousands of laws overnight- The EU Retained Law bill uses brexit to abolish laws protecting 50% of your pension if your employer goes bust, requirements major sporting events free to watch and compensation for delayed flights. Watch our Chair Stella Creasy MP challenge the Prime Minister on how this is in the national interest here:
Labour Movement for Europe has called on the Labour Party to “take back control of Brexit” as the Government used being out of the European Union to justify uncapping bankers bonuses. Ahead of the Labour conference, the LME is calling on Labour to support three immediate actions to reclaim the relationship between the UK and the EU for the benefit of British businesses and consumers.
The latest polls suggest Keir Starmer’s best hope of power is at the head of a minority government. And the signs are that many - perhaps a majority of - party members are already getting used to the idea.
Something odd is happening with Brexit. Since October 2017, the overwhelming majority of polls have had more people saying voting for Brexit was wrong than right, but not by much. Now there appears to be a shift. Why?
In my part of the world, we are gearing up for what we hope will be an historic victory in next year’s borough elections – seizing Wandsworth after more than 40 years in Tory hands.
