Rationalist destroys Leavers with list of all EU laws that have been forced on us against our will
A rationalist has destroyed Leave claims that exiting the EU means “taking back control” by listing all the EU laws that have been forced on us against our will.
According to the commons library just 4,514 out of 34,105 laws have been influenced by the EU, of which just 72 of them were forced on us against our will.
They included regulations such as making sure food labels say if Aspartine is present, which has been linked to cancer, headaches and seizures, and banning carcinogenic residue in meat.
Others include making airlines compensate passengers for delayed or cancelled flights and making sure additives in mineral water are safe and labels are honest.
