Tony Blair says European Union is 'willing to consider changes' to avoid Brexit

Nicola Sturgeon the Scottish first minister with Michel Barnier the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator in Brussels yesterday

The british government published on Thursday the draft law meant to put an end to the supremacy of european law, including the discussion in Parliament, where it has lost the absolute majority, promises him many sleepless nights. Leaving a divided parliament with greater say over the way Britain makes its exit.

Tory rebellions likely on most significant legislation of this parliament.

Jeremy Corbyn will tell the EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier that Labour is a "government in waiting" and ready to take up responsibility for negotiating Britain's withdrawal from the EU.

The Repeal Bill will repeal the European Communities Act on the day the United Kingdom leaves the EU, as well as allowing the mammoth task of bringing in around 12,000 EU regulations into United Kingdom law.

The government believes that the charter does not need to be included because it was designed only to gather together existing European Union rights, rather than create new ones, and therefore all the rights in it should be protected under the other laws covered in the bill.

As well as concerns about the expansion of executive power, Labour fears an erosion of basic and workers' rights and plans to submit amendments when the bill is debated in the autumn.

"It is not a ransom, it is not an exit bill, it is not revenge".

The former Labour leader also criticised his party's vision of a "jobs first" Brexit outside the single market, calling it a "contradiction in terms". "That's why any deal with the European Union must ensure that workers' rights in Britain don't fall behind the rest of Europe".

"But all of these things delivered what the UK Government said at the outset that they would do - more powers and responsibilities for the Scottish Parliament and that's what this Bill will do".

As the process gets underway it is expected that MPs will seek to change aspects of the bill and table amendments. Prime Minister Theresa May needs to come to an accommodation with her European Union counterparts on the payment, because it's one of three areas, alongside citizens' rights and the border with Ireland that the European Union is demanding "sufficient progress" on before the discussions can move onto Britain's future relationship with the bloc.

Other EU laws, known as directives, are already incorporated into British law. "This will be hell", added Tim Farron, leader of the pro-European Liberal Democrats.

In a sign that ministers are anxious about defeat, the bill will not be put to a vote until the autumn at the earliest. "Any attempt to use Brexit and the Repeal Bill as a backdoor means to avoiding implementation of the highest standards would be hugely irresponsible in an era of superbugs".
