1/ THREAD on how UK repeal bill paves the way for a removal of rights after #Brexit, explained by a prof of EU law:

2/ Rights may disappear in several ways. 1st, the suite of Brexit bills promised in 2017 Queen’s Speech will herald what may be …
3/ … a new, and as yet completely undetermined, legal regime on issues such as immigration, trade, customs, agriculture and fisheries.
4/ This means that new rules will not be subject to existing EU law rules, rendering existing rights vulnerable.
5/ 2nd, bill affords sweeping powers to ministers to make such provision as they consider “appropriate”, to “prevent, remedy or mitigate” …
6/ … what it calls “deficiencies” in retained EU law, and to “implement the withdrawal agreement” with the remaining 27 EU member states.
7/ It seems that the desire to “take back control” from the EU has morphed into an altogether more sinister desire …
8/ … on the part of the government to minimise scrutiny of its policy choices.
9/ 3rd, bill leaves much to UK judges' discretion – enforcement of UK law in UK on and after Brexit day will be a matter for domestic courts
10/ In some cases, UK courts will even have freedom to ignore existing case law of the European Court.
11/ MPs must recognise the extent of the change provided for in this bill, and scrutinise the proposed arrangements accordingly.
