The initial quote for this came from Boris's sister but to be honest if you think about it, the same thing happened with the Brexit vote. Farage's friends made an absolute killing.
How? Link please. Farage's banking buddies on the night told Farage that according to their polling, Remain had won.Farage's friends made an absolute killing.
How?I'm talking about the gradual erosion of consumer protection laws, labour protection laws and other related laws so that we can "help Britain be great again"
What's to stop them? Court of human rights? Nope, not anymore. Now I'm not saying that it's not flawed because it is. But that's like saying we shouldn't have courts at all because they have been shown to be biased against certain communities. Yes they have been, but you still need courts.How?
Yes and you make some great points (I did say there are good arguments of both sides), but I still ask the same question, what is to stop these rights from being eroded? Can't you see the gradual centralisation of power that is occurring around the world. The only difference here is that the lords and ladies of this land don't want to share.How?
The EU sets a minimum of 14 weeks maternity pay. The UK gives 52.
Your right to holidays is from the holiday act 1938. The EU legislates for 4 weeks. You get the right to 5.6 weeks.
Equal pay was brought into the UK in 1970. Before we joined.
The EU has no laws on minimum wage. Some EU countries don't set it at all. The UK has one of the highest.
Laws on sex and race discrimination date back to before we joined.
See edited post. We got the rights we have without the EU.What's to stop them? Court of human rights? Nope, not anymore. Now I'm not saying that it's not flawed because it is.

Read my full (edited) post. I don't believe in Project Fear because I know that it's just another slogan (just like 350 million for the NHS). As for your question? Simples. The regions that mostly voted for Brexit are the same regions that mostly benefited from EU subsidies. How is that a vote winner?See edited post. We got the rights we have without the EU.
You are also missing the obvious with your project fear. The electorate. Would you vote to see less rights for yourself? Why would anyone else? How is it a vote winner?
Exactly!How? Link please. Farage's banking buddies on the night told Farage that according to their polling, Remain had won.
Nigel Farage has said "it looks like Remain will edge it" as polling stations closed across the UK in the EU referendum.
The UKIP leader said he believes Britain has voted to remain in the European Union, on the basis of exit polls privately conducted by his friends in the city.
One can hope but I just can't see Boris doing this. If the leaks for his current plans are anywhere near true then the Irish are already saying it's a non starter and the rumour is that the EU are saying that it doesn't give the same guarantees as the backstop.As someone else said, things will sort themselves in the end regardless but I think if we leave with no deal, a deal will soon be done once both sides have stopped being so proud/stubborn.
We are the only county that gets a rebate. Thatcher did that! While were were in the EU almost all attempts to create a United States of Europe were blocked by Britain. As soon as we said we are going to leave, it gave them the excuse and impetus to actually speed up the project! So what we have actually done is counter-productive to the original aim.What is the answer then? Reforming from within is clearly a non starter. Cameron went cap in hand begging for any scraps that he could spin to say “see, they will listen” and they sent him back with nothing.
