The Great Repeal Bill – addressing unaccountable power
The Great Repeal Bill (“the Bill” or “GRB”) has the potential to grant the government an almost unprecedented level of unaccountable power. The Bill will grant exceptional legal powers. The political process by which it is passed will chill democratic scrutiny. Progressives must address the Bill’s accountability gaps if campaigns on substantive issues, such as free movement, the environment, and employment rights, are to be successful.
