The plan is to get the UK out. Here is how Theresa May intends to do it:
As part of the process she will transfer all current Brussels laws and regulations onto parliament’s statute books instead, with MPs set to spent the next few decades going through them one by one and deciding which ones they do and do not want to keep.
The announcement is the new PM’s first firm commitment on Brexit since moving into No 10 in July, and gives an insight into how she plans to go about handling the monumentally complex process of severing ties with Brussels.
An excellent move to remove the burden of a distant bureaucracy. Brussels is the EU version of DC.
It is also being seen as the first major attempt to end the 44-year supremacy of EU law in Britain and hand back ultimate control over the nation’s affairs to elected MPs.
Announcing the move, Mrs May told the Sunday Times: “This marks the first stage in the UK becoming a sovereign and independent country once again.
“It will return power and authority to the elected institutions of our country. It means that the authority of EU law in Britain will end.”
