Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 25, 2018

Prime Minister Theresa May is drafting plans to sign British businesses up to a clutch of regulators that will be overseen by the European Court of Justice, a move likely to spark a fierce backlash from Brexit supporters in her party. Two people familiar with the matter said government documents propose placing industrial sectors such as chemicals under the jurisdiction of European regulators, which are in turn overseen by the ECJ. The move would be designed to help maintain the best possible access to the EU single market after Brexit. A government spokesman responded to say that no final decisions have yet been made on the U.K.'s future relationship with the EU's agencies and bodies after the country leaves. Brexit campaigners already fear May is planning to water down their vision of a clean split with the bloc, with some Conservatives even preparing to oust her if she keeps the U.K. tied too closely to European rules. They see escaping the power of the ECJ as totemic.
