Boris Johnson promises a Brexit Bonanza in this weeks Queen’s speech.

With the Queen’s Speech this week, Boris Johnson promises a Brexit Bill bonanza to make the most of newfound freedoms and put painful local elections behind him.

The PM claimed his Government is “relentless drive to deliver on the promise of Brexit”.

The government intends to “rejuvenate high streets and restore pride in local areas” by tackling dilapidated buildings.

For the PM, a “super seven” set of Brexit freedom Bills would enable Britain to “thrive as a modern, dynamic and independent country”.

His promise comes as the party mourns the loss of famous councils and 500 councillors. Senior Conservatives have encouraged their leader to concentrate on “levelling up” before the next election.

“I’m proud that my government is capitalising on the immense opportunity that our newfound Brexit freedoms bring,” Mr Johnson added. “This relentless drive to deliver on the promise of Brexit is why we’re bringing seven Brexit Bills in the Queen’s Speech .” 

“I call them the super seven – and they will benefit families and businesses across the land by changing old EU rules that don’t work for the UK. From data reform to gene-editing to financial services, these Bills will allow us to thrive as a modern, dynamic and independent country, and this government is getting on with the job of delivering them”.

New Zealand and Australia will be included in the Queen’s Speech on Tuesday, removing taxes on 100% of products sent to these nations.

It will also include the much-anticipated Brexit Freedoms Bill, which would make repealing existing EU rules simpler. This could save British businesses roughly £1 billion in red tape.

A new rule would remove “unnecessary EU barriers” to gene editing to improve agricultural disease resistance and cut pesticide usage.

The upcoming Procurement Bill will make it simpler for SMBs to compete on governmental contracts. The Financial Services and Markets Bill will reduce red tape to make the UK more attractive to investors, while the Data Reform Bill will simplify the “burdensome GDPR” system and promote information sharing between public bodies.

Puppies will be harder to smuggle under new law that elevates requirements “ higher than the EU”.

Action is also being taken to revive British high streets. Many typical Labour “red wall” seats flipped to the Conservatives in 2019.
Mr Johnson is said to be committed to addressing the issue of long-empty stores blighting high streets and “wasting fresh employment opportunities”.

Councils would be granted the ability to seize ownership of buildings and turn them into “transforming boarded up shops or derelict buildings into thriving businesses, shared community spaces or housing”.

According to Mr Johnson, “High streets up and down the country have long been blighted by derelict shopfronts, because they’ve been neglected, stripping opportunity from local areas. We are putting that right by placing power back in the hands of local leaders and the community so our towns can be rejuvenated, levelling up opportunity and restoring neighbourhood pride.”
