The EU laws are working within UK law now

They are just being re-named. And then changed. Without FULL parliamentary scrutiny. For as long as the minority government decides.

In the same way the eu would allow us much stricter laws regarding migration but the uk government has chosen not to implement them

Prior to the coalition government, Care UK chairman John Nash made a contribution of £21,000 to the private office of Andrew Lansley. After becoming Health Secretary, Lansley brought in the Health and Social Care Act of 2012, which forced the NHS to put health service contracts out to tender on the private market. Nash’s company Care UK took full advantage of this and are now the UK’s largest independent provider of health and social care services.
Quote:
In 2014, Care UK took over services for people with severe learning disabilities in Doncaster, where they promptly cut the wages of previous NHS staff by up to 35%.
Quote:
In 2015, ITV’s Exposure programme highlighted some shocking practices at an urgent care centre run by Care UK at Ealing Hospital. They reported seeing:

Pregnant women with ectopic pregnancies waiting 3 hours before being seen by a GP.
Empty medicine cabinets, with doctors admitting they frequently ran out of painkillers and antibiotics.
Work experience students being left to check on patients because doctors and nurses were too busy.
GPs who admitted they couldn’t understand X-rays ‘for s***’ and may miss fractures.
Clinics dealing with 50 per cent more patients than they can manage with patients being told to take their own temperature.
It was also alleged that staff registered the discharge of patients before they had been treated to avoid breaching the NHS 4 hour waiting target.
Quote:
Care UK reported in 2013 that public funds accounted for 88% of the company’s revenues and admitted to using “tax-efficient” financial structures involving the Channel Islands. ..... Care UK had not paid a penny in corporation tax since it was bought by the private equity firm Bridgepoint Capital in 2010.
Quote:
In recent years many CCGs have tried to block tenders from companies if they use exotic tax structures, but in 2016 these rules were scrapped for fear of litigation from such companies claiming that they were being discriminated against.
This should not have been down to individual CCGs to do, it should be law that state funded contracts can ONLY go to companies that are registered and pay tax in the UK. If they claim they are not making enough money to pay corporation tax then they should be considered non-viable as a long term service provider.

Quote:
After losing the contract, Care UK appealed to the NHS regulator Monitor who, in a further stroke of irony, have since changed their name to NHS Improvement. They forced the local commissioning groups to re-run the tendering process, after which they awarded the contract to Care UK.

In Labour's manifesto.

It is also possible under current EU procurement legislation to exclude a tender for a public sector contract from any company which has had their tax returns declared incorrect under the GAAR.

So I think we can all see one of the EU laws which is going to disappear post-Brexit.

Live births in England and Wales last year = 696,27. All of those f***ers will consume public amenities for at least 18 years without contributing a penny in taxes... then they'll want their own houses.
