I learned about these today, and how they will be used in respect of Brexit, and I feel a little concerned that they could very easily be abused. Can someone more in the know reassure me that they cannot be abused?
In a nutshell, the withdrawal bill means that all EU law simply transfers into UK law at the point we withdraw, but government are going to use the Henry the 8th powers to amend these laws as they see fit over time. What this means is that the changes to law will be given much less scrutiny by parliament, and that no amendments to these changes can be proposed - though the changes can be rejected.
The reasoning for this is allow much swifter changes to the laws that are deemed less appropriate to the UK, but my fear is that it is aimed more at the laws that we (we meaning our government) don't like.
Anyone here working in he civil service that has a better view on this?
Up until the mistake him and Woolfy had an assured game together, seemed a proper pairing, and shut out absolutely everything Sunderland had.
It was an absolute howler, make no mistake, but I think the two of them could end up being a really good CB pairing for us this season.
I'm not sure I get the level of concern about Norwood either, he was utterly unplayable in that first half and involved in so much of our attacking play. Second half, along with several others, he had less impact, but I've seen enough to know that he will do just fine for us.
