Brexit: Theresa May will ‘enshrine all existing EU law into British law’

by | 3rd, October 2016

Has Article 50 been triggered? No. But we’re getting lots of news that it might be, maybe. It’s the Tory Party conference and leader Theresa May is keen to please all sides of her Cabinet by talking up Brexit whilst doing very little top make it happen.

The BBC reports:

May will formally begin the Brexit process by the end of March 2017, she has told the BBC.

Great. Pull the trigger…and:

The prime minister confirmed the deadline for triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which sets in place a two-year process of withdrawal. She has also promised a “Great Repeal Bill” in the next Queen’s Speech, which will overturn the act that took the UK into the forerunner of the EU.

The Sun says we are on the “March to Freedom”.

The Mail says Theresa May is “not for tuning” – just like Margaret Thatcher said she wasn’t.

All good. The people voted to reject the European Union.

The BBC adds:

It will remove the European Communities Act 1972 from the statute book. The government will also enshrine all existing EU law into British law.

Hands up those who voted to regain control the country?

Nah. Can’t see you…
