Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
Theresa May has set herself on collision course with Brexiteer MPs after plans were revealed for the key law keeping Britain in the EU to apply after exit day.

Sky News understands ministers will scrap the European Communities Act (ECA) but "save" its "effect" for the transition period
.
This will be done to "ensure that EU law continues to apply in the UK" during the 19 months that would follow exit day, if Mrs May secures a deal with Brussels.

Or as Sky's political editor has it...

Faisal Islam‏Verified account @faisalislamThe wording is about “saving” the effect of the now unrepealed ECA in transition - that means full application of European Court of Justice direct effect during this time, with no representation on councils, committees etc.
