    Brexit explained (specifically for Ryan)

    I was really looking for a list of things we have implemented whilst in the EU that we wouldn't have done if we had not joined? Like the EU working time directive for example Which we agreed to as long as we could opt out? Or All countries will use a common currency (Euro) We agreed as long as it applied to new members only?

    Hillsborough

    That will probably come at the end of this trial.
  4. I don't like the idea of PR because it implies that some constituencies would get an MP that the majority of the population didn't actually vote for.? I would prefer to keep the first past the post system but have it that MPs had to have at least 50% of votes cast. IE everyone votes for a first and second choice and starting with the lowest candidate redistribute the 2nd choices until 1 has 50%. As the current system will continue for some time I think we will end up with coalitions and agreements for the next three elections at least, probably every couple of years the first one being Mar 28th 2019 :~)

    It definitley would. And also how many of the laws/regulations (it is actually mainly regulations) would we have changed to agree with the Law if we were not in the EU There are many regulations that we have agreed via the EU that we will have to spend time and money implementing if we are no longer in it.

    Member countries are also bound by the Charter when they apply EU law in their national systems. The Charter has been controversial in the UK because critics believe the EU court can use it to extend the reach of EU law and reduce national sovereignty. However, EU law states that the Charter does not create new rights and does not increase the EU’s powers. In practice, the Charter seems to be giving the courts a bigger role. Judges in England have used the Charter in several recent cases to override UK laws. All this is separate from the European Convention on Human Rights and European Court of Human Rights, which aren’t part of the EU at all. https://fullfact.org/europe/eus-powers/

    Corbyn has every right to watch the Tories implode over Brexit. It's a Tory problem, they put it as a pledge in their manifesto in 2015. It was they that then spent months trying to make the wording so ambiguous only people with a degree in political history could see the problems and contradictions it left wide open. They allowed the media to run with the "stops immigration and gives the Country more money and control" BS unchallenged. Labour Manifesto stated on the EU in 2015 The final section of the manifesto concentrates on foreign policy. Labour says it will: Reform the EU so it "works for Britain" Allow no further transfer of powers to Brussels without a referendum and the good British people stuck with "Dodgy Dave."

    The bit that will be over ruled is the idea that allocating an amount of green belt will stop developers applying to build on other green belt areas, they will routinely take the matter to Central goverment and win the same as now. The Hulton estate is going to have a Ryder Cup golf course apparantley :~) :~) :~)
