What's Not To Like?

From the Daily Mail:

Earlier this month, senior Tory Cabinet ministers published six pieces of legislation they hoped to pass to restore Britain's border controls and end the supremacy of EU law following a Brexit. 

Michael Gove, Chris Grayling and Boris Johnson set out what is effectively a manifesto for a 'government in waiting'. They pledged that the new laws would be in place by the next General Election in 2020.

Finance Bill: This would abolish the 5 per cent rate of VAT on household energy bills. Paid for by savings from the UK’s contributions to the EU budget. 

National Health Service (Funding Target) Bill: Requirement that by the next general election, the NHS receives a £100 million per week real-terms cash transfusion on top of current plans. Paid for by savings from the UK’s contributions to EU budget. 

Asylum and Immigration Control Bill: Ends the automatic right of all EU citizens to enter the UK by the next election. Criminals refused entry and a ‘non-discriminatory’ Australian points-based system, based on skills, introduced for those wishing to enter from inside and outside the EU. 

European Union Law (Emergency Provisions) Bill: This would end the European Court of Justice’s control over national security, allow ministers to remove EU citizens whose presence is not conducive to the public good – including terrorists and serious criminals – and end the growing use of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights to overrule UK law. 

Free Trade Bill: The UK would leave the EU’s ‘common commercial policy’. That would restore the UK Government’s power to set its own trade policy. UK would take back seat on the World Trade Organization. 

European Communities Act 1972 (Repeal) Bill: Ensures the European Communities Act 1972 – the legal basis for supremacy of EU law – is repealed. EU Treaties will cease to form part of UK law and European Court’s jurisdiction will end. UK would cease to contribute to the EU budget. EU law to be transferred into domestic law with Parliament choosing what to keep, remove or amend.

(Emphasis mine.)

I wonder how many people in the "Remain" camp realised exactly how much British sovereignty was ceded to the Union.

Okay, who wants to start the UN exodus...anyone?


  1. Excellent commentary from Brendan O'Neill at Spiked.

    "The chasm between the elite and the people just went from huge to possibly unbridgeable."

    1. I enjoyed reading that Fay, thank you. And that is ABSOLUTELY the quote of the day.

      Hillary supporters should take heed. We've had ENOUGH.

  2. Those potential legislative bills were truly prescient. I too enjoyed reading it, Fay, and am so glad the Tory ministers are listening to their constituents. Bravo!

  3. Did the EU do anything for Britain except takes its money and say how its bananas should be shaped?

    Don't answer that.

  4. A strong, and none too early, strike at globalists & multiculturalists. Hoping to see another very strong blow at them this November.

    We need to ask the elites why it is only the civilized peoples who are required to change and to give up their sovereignty and cultures, while the savages are not
