Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
It's over 95% actually, Pete, and most of them have been arrived at by consensus. When you consider that it's consensus by 28 countries, that's pretty good going. It's because almost all of those regulations were common sense, and you can bet your life that we'll stick with almost all of them when we leave. We'll have to see whether chlorinated chickens and GM beef stuffed with illegal hormones will also be spun to us as common sense.

And, up 'til now, we've had the power of veto over any major changes we don't like.
