“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.
