May's Chequers deal doesn't mention workers' rights, environmental protection or consumer protection in post-Brexit Britain. Are we simply to assume they will continue as now, in line with EU standards? After Brexit is the UK likely to get enhanced protections in these areas, or is it more likely that we will have a "bonfire of the regulations" in which such anti-business frippery gets swept away? My opinion? I fear for the UK's workers and our status in the world as long as Tories remain in charge. I am convinced that, for Boris and co. this has never been about seizing back national independence. It has always been about turning the UK into the "Dirty Man of Europe" once again in which unrestrained profit-making and enhancing shareholder value will elbow aside workers and the general public.
