Its based on having been screwed over by the EU over many years working.
We/my employer did business all over the world - except the EU where everything was put in our way to obstruct us: to the extent that we did not bother anymore even trying we knew that even if we put in bids below cost price for fun (and we did!) there was no way we would ever get an order.
The latest Eu directive arises out of a farm accident in Slovenia - what has this got to do with the UK you ask? - beats mehttps://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-4054528/Ride-lawnmowers-soon-required-motor-insurance-new-EU-directive.html
Anyway the proposals are now that all mechanically propelled people carrying vehicles much be insured at all times no matter where they are.
So that will put an end to the UK's SORN principle of laid up uninsured vehicles and even ride on lawn mowers in your own garden will have to have motor insurance.
Goodness knows what is going to happen to classic car collections in museums....either they get exemptions or maybe they all get their engines ripped out so they are no longer mechanically propelled
Well we are leaving so we can now ignore any EU directives
You have to ask yourself - why do they do it?
Why does the EU continually seek to Pss people off with this rubbish.
Why is it that we though our taxes are in effect paying Jaguar Landrover to take up EU sponsored state aid to move the factory out of the UK and into to Slovakia.
Its all a bit like paying your competitor money to take business from you
Is not state aid illegal you ask? - well not in this case apparently - all approved by the EU which makes up its own rules.
Is anything happening following the EU Ombudsman's scathing report about the appointment of Mr Selmayr as deputy Secretary without any due process whatsoever of any form.
Of course not - the commission decided to ignore the report.
The EU is in my opinion more bent than the average coat hanger
