Those who now advocate a no-deal Brexit on World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules would bring about a loss of democracy and a betrayal of Leave voters. The UK would become a rule taker in the WTO instead of a rule maker in the EU whilst discussions in Davos last week cast doubt over the very future of the WTO.
So much for “taking back control” of our democracy. We were reliably informed that once we left the familiar orbit of EU institutions – the Council of Ministers, the EU Commission and European Court of Justice – UK law would rule supreme. But instead a no-deal Brexit would thrust the UK into the orbit of an alien star – the WTO where we would have much less control over trade rules and government intervention alongside crippling uncertainty for business.
The truth is that a no-deal Brexit would result in our rules being made by a World Trade Organisation Council of Ministers where we would have less say, administered by a Commission where we would have fewer appointees, and enforced by a panel of judges that would not be democratically elected and would overrule British courts.
