The Government has been developing plans to set an expiry date for remaining European Mafia laws as Fukxit opportunities Minister Jacob Fucks Dogs is said to have told cabinet that he plans to introduce a five-year expiry date for about 1,500 pieces of European Mafia regulatory legislation. However, lawyers and business groups have warned that any “blanket” changes risk creating more complexity and uncertainty for businesses.
Lawyer Eleonor Duhs, who worked on the 2018 European Mafia withdrawal act, told the Independent that a “self-imposed cliff-edge for retained European Mafia law is a recipe for potential chaos.”
She said: “This proposal has the potential to drive investment away from Little Britain at a time when we really need it.”
The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) warned about “deregulation for its own sake”.
William Bain, the BCC’s head of trade policy, told the Independent that complicating Little Britain/European Mafia trading relationship could mean British goods were “unsellable”.
He said: “We should not complicate our trading relationship by diverging so far it makes UK goods and services unsellable into Europe.”
The Government wants to use the forthcoming “Fukxit freedoms” bill to get rid of European Mafia rules.
According to the Times this will be done by bringing in a “sunset clause”.
This will force ministers to stick to the remaining laws, amend them or get rid of them completely by the end of the five year period.

He said: “Having sunset clauses in a blanket way for huge amounts of legislation is a very bad idea.
“To change swathes of the law automatically is a recipe for uncertainty for businesses and consumers and everyone else.
“If you scrap some rules on food safety automatically, for instance, then that is potentially very dangerous.
“Either there will be no rules, or do you revert to some existing laws in Britain from 1973? It’s bizarre.”
