Level-up Britain

“Levelling-up” - a catchy but empty slogan invented by the Government to convince us they are doing something to fix regional inequalities.  

In a similar vein, the Government has announced a “Brexit Freedoms Bill” to make it easier to amend or remove ‘retained EU law and “unleash the benefits of Brexit”.

A bonfire of EU laws means nothing - all it will do is allow the Government to repeatedly tout sovereignty while ripping up our rights. We cannot stand by and let them get away with this. 

For those of us who live in the real world, it is clear the disastrous combination of a very hard Brexit and an incapable Government has left us with far fewer opportunities, less stability and lower prosperity than we once had. From increased post-Brexit red tape for exporters and importers to uncontrolled energy prices, nothing about Brexit has brought us freedom. The country is more unequal than ever, and the cost of living crisis weighs heavily on people while the Government looks on and does nothing to ease it.

Add your name: Tell the UK Government to implement the UK Trade and Business Commission’s recommendations.

The UK Trade and Business Commission is cross party, cross industry and pretty cross that British businesses are being failed by the UK Government’s  post-Brexit trade deals. 

Their evidence based report, explains the burdens of costly new Brexit red tape and barriers to trade, which are artificially increasing costs for businesses and consumers at a time when global events threaten to hike prices even further. The Commission’s proposals are aimed at finding solutions to these problems as well as removing points of political tension between the UK and its closest neighbours around the Northern Ireland Protocol.

If you want to see a brighter future for British trade, sign our petition calling on the Government to implement these recommendations.

The Commission’s key recommendations are as follows:

 

  • There’s always room for improvement. UK trade agreements should be more inclusive and consultative in the way they are drawn up. Government and other stakeholders should assess the effect of trade deals on the UK’s economic structure and regularly revisit the Trade and Cooperation Agreement with the EU. . 

 

  • Stick to the standards. The UK must remain aligned to EU regulation and standards when it comes to areas such as finance, regulatory frameworks and veterinary agreements. This will ensure smoother trading in future and bring stability to the UK’s trade. 

 

  • Strategic thinking. The UK should also develop and commit to a comprehensive trade strategy, rather than just a simple export target. The UK needs to attract investors through showcasing top talent and cutting-edge technology. 

 

  • Diplomatic developments. The UK needs to make sure it is trusted and respected on the international stage - and is seen as a good partner in diplomatic matters. 

 

  • Helping small businesses. The Government must keep supporting businesses by tailoring Visa regulations to help with staffing shortages and continually fine-tune policy to tackle setbacks as they arise. The Government must also put a successor to the Brexit Support Fund in place urgently. 

 

  • Protocol proactivity. The Commission recognises that the Northern Ireland protocol is currently the main focal point of contention with regards to the Brexit deal. The report recommends that both the EU and UK find a pragmatic way forward in current negotiations.

 

So ask the Government to take stock of the facts and face up to the realities ahead. More than ever, the recommendations of experts that sit on the Commission are needed to protect and preserve our international trade and to help consumers out with spiralling costs. 

Sign the petition today.

Take action: stop our rights, freedoms and opportunities going up in smoke on the Brexit bonfire

Will you donate today to help us challenge the Government on its Brexit bluster?

The new “Brexit Freedoms Bill” contains promises from the PM to capitalise on the “freedoms” that Brexit offers.

But what are these freedoms? We’re currently bogged down by Brexit bureaucracy - with more red tape than ever affecting shipments at our borders. We’re burdened with the escalating cost of living, and there are no political solutions in sight. 

The “Brexit Freedoms Bill” is simply Boris bluster - and we can’t let him keep spouting it without calling him out. 

This Government must stop with the empty promises and do the right thing for our society. And if it will not do that willingly then we must make sure that it knows that the public will not tolerate it any more. 

Will you be part of our drive to hold the Government to account? From campaigns to research to polling, we’ll keep striving to make sure this Government doesn’t get away with anything. Be part of our work and donate today.
