Not Exactly All Change In UK Laws

This last three years we have seen the most turmoil in UK politics for probably centuries.   Give or take the odd world war and royal abdication crisis, the current hefty changes to any of our laws and way of operating is the most serious since possibly Charles I’s demise and the first commonwealth back in the mid 1600s.  For those folk who joyfully thought by voting for brexit meant kissing goodbye everything that binds us to EU laws and statutes are not correct and we will still have EU law becoming part of UK law as ‘retained EU law’.  This has been done to make sure there is as calm and smooth transition from the one routine to the new to enable continuity of legal rules as is possible.  This means that the Statutory Instruments – which are the secondary law in UK, for example, the working time directive, will continue to apply through the UK.   There has been much thought to protect the country from an onslaught of uncovered legal issues.  No point in rushing new things through like a bull in a legal china shop after all.
