Rees Mogg's plot to remove 1,500 EU regulations has hit a dead end: Where will Brexit goods be sold?

The government has been developing a plan to set a shelf life for the remaining EU laws as Brexit Chance Minister Jacob Rees Mogg is said to have told the cabinet he plans to give a deadline of 5 year for about 1,500 EU regulatory laws. However, the EU's plan to remove the law is facing great skepticism. Many sources claim that the scheme was scrapped with claims that it would make British goods "unsalable in Europe". This will aggravate the already dismal economy after the Brexit pandemic. The business community's response to this bill: Lawyers and business groups have warned that any "boss" change risks creating more complexity and uncertainty for the business. Lawyer Eleonor Duhs, who worked on the 2018 EU withdrawal bill, told the Independent that "the self-imposed brink of EU law being retained is a recipe for potential chaos." "This proposal has the potential to push investment out of the UK at a time when we really need it," she said. The British Chamber of Commerce has warned of "deregulation for its own sake". William Bain, BCC's head of trade policy, told the Independent that complicating the UK/EU trading relationship could mean British goods "don't sell". The government wants to use the upcoming "Brexit freedoms" bill to break free from EU rules. According to the Times, this will be done by including a "sunset clause". This would force ministers to comply with the remaining laws, amend them or eliminate them altogether at the end of the five-year period. Mr Rees-Mogg is said to have told the cabinet earlier this month about his plan to force 1,500 EU laws to expire. This is to "force radical thinking" from government agencies. Mr Bain said: "We should not complicate our trading relationship by decoupling so far, which has left UK goods and services unsold into Europe." Jonathan Jones QC, who was the Government's chief legal officer who resigned in protest of Brexit policy, has been very critical of the plan. Mr Jones told the Independent this was "potentially very dangerous" as it would be very difficult for parliament and other stakeholders to consider each other. He said: "Having sunset provisions that cover a large amount of legislation is a very bad idea. "For example, if you're automatically removing some food safety rules, that can be very dangerous. "Either there won't be any rules, or you go back to some law that's been in place in the UK since 1973? That's weird." "Automatically changing laws is a recipe for uncertainty for businesses, consumers, and everyone else. To add to the growing chaos and disruption, Boris Johnson's plan to cut 91,000 civil servants - about 20% - over three years, will leave Whitehall unable to handle the massive workload caused by Brexit-induced, independent experts and unions have warned the authorities. A catastrophic failure is poised for Brexit.
