In over 3 years of campaigning to #stopbrexit I have had a lot of time to think about EU laws that affect us to our benefit.

What EU laws do you like?

Here are 10 EU laws I like and this is how they affect YOU.👇

#NoToNoDeal #Brexit #PeoplesVote
Consular Protection Directive: As EU citizens, Brits can automatically rely on consular protection from any EU country when in an emergency in a country and there is no British representation. Handy!
Transfers of Undertakings Directive: People whose employer changes after merger, takeover or acquisition are protected by EU law. Red tape slashing #Brexiters on the side of big business would probably like to remove/water down these employee protections we have.
Mobile Roaming Regulation: Outside EU rules on roaming charges, Brits could get stung by phone companies abroad. Something to mull over as you Instagram on the beach this summer. Who else remembers those eye-watering charges!?
Consumer Rights Directive: This creates rights across the EU. It aligns national consumer rules eg on the information you need to be given before you buy something, and your right to cancel online purchases. This means that you can rely on same rights wherever you shop in the EU.
Mutual Recognition of Qualifications Directive: This gives automatic recognition to qualifications for nurses, midwives, doctors etc subject to meeting certain conditions. This give our NHS access to a huge pool of talent. Is this bad for us?
Pet Passports Regulation: This lets you bring your pooch on holiday! Need I say more about why I like it?
Driving Licences Directive: I will quote directly from the Directive - 'Driving licences issued by Member States shall be mutually recognised.' This is excellent because it means we can just nip across the channel and drive anywhere within the EU.
Flight Compensation Regulation: This provides compensation and assistance to passengers caught out by delayed or cancelled flights. Delayed flights etc can really ruin your day so it's nice to have some way of getting compensated.
Citizens Rights Directive: This is the one we all love. It sets out our freedom of movement rights across the entire EU along with all its opportunities. It balances the fundamental right for us to move freely in the EU and Member States limiting the burden that this may cause.
General Food Law Regulation: This creates a farm-to-fork approach that covers all sectors of the food chain. It aims for a high level of protection of human life, health and the protection of consumers’ interests, as well as the protection of animal health and welfare.
There are worse changes to laws than these but these are the simple ones that will impact our daily lives, each on it's own is small, but they add up and each are a positive reason to stay in the EU.
So when someone asks what EU laws benefit me? These are 10 that benefit everybody.
