I was quite intrigued by ‘The Great Repeal Act’. I wondered why it was ‘Great’. I vaguely thought that it meant the repeal of vast numbers of EU imposed regulations. I was very disconcerted to find that ‘The Great Repeal Act’ meant, a) enacting laws in the UK which imposed thousands of regulations of one sort or another which were not UK law already, and then, b) repealing the the 1970s law which committed the UK to EU Control. But there is a c), which is the idea of subsequently getting rid of those newly enacted laws which we do not like.
In a way, I understand that. Accept the rules and then abrogate them.
But why accept the rules at all?
I do understand that, and it is quite simple. You cannot abrogate rules which do not exist. Thus, you must get rid of ‘grey’ areas. You must make everything black and white. So, you enact a law which imposes all the duties, and then you amend the law to repeal those duties bit by bit.
There is much fun to be expected. Trump in the USA intends to get rid of regulations which hamper US Enterprise, such as Environment stuff. I expect that our Government will do likewise, in due course.
But before the Environment stuff can be ejected, “EDUCATION” must be re-orientated. Our planet is HUGE, ABSOLUTELY ENORMOUS. The resources available to us are only limited by our imaginations. Why are not schools describing the enormity of our resources?
If we allow our imaginations freedom, and put resources into those imaginations, then a minimal living standard for all could be achieved. But while resources are wasted via the ‘Framework Convention on Tobacco Control’, no such UN projects can be envisaged. They will always be ‘controlled’ by the FCTC, World Bank, EU, etc, etc.
Entities such as the UN, WHO, World Bank, etc, were NEVER envisaged as CONTROLLERS. It is an indictment of past politicians that they did not see that they themselves would be relegated to the status of simple voters whilst the UN etc gained more and more power.
So there is a simple point which is paramount. We Brits decide out laws.
