Jacob Rees-Mogg was spouting out about ditching EU laws in the Commons yesterday.
It comes as civil servants are estimated to be spending tens of millions of pounds establishing which laws and regulations could be scrapped under the government’s EU laws bill, reported The Guardian.
Also Ruth Chambers of the Greener UK coalition of 10 major environmental organisations said: “Trying to scrap nearly 4,000 laws in a year with next to no scrutiny is reckless and undermines the environment, business and public health.
“Simply extending the deadline will not change the fundamental flaws. Ministers will still be able to weaken vital protections behind closed doors. Gaps will still be left in the law. The bill will drain resources from government departments trying to deal with the cost of living crisis, and cost taxpayers millions in the process.
“We need a far more considered approach that this bill cannot and will not provide.”
Ress-Mogg has simply ignored all this and tweeted his video from the Commons and wrote: “The bonfire of EU vanities.”
Maybe he should watch this video from BBC’s Ros Atkins.
Or indeed this artilce…
