Brexit Has Demonstrated Beyond Doubt, We Have Become A Country Of Rule Takers And Not Rule Makers
The EU has passed legislation that bans the import of goods linked to deforestation from 2025. If the UK wants to continue exporting goods to the EU, then we will have to pass similar laws to guarantee that goods and materials entering the UK meet these requirements for possible onward export to the EU.
The UK government has said that they plan to introduce such laws.
There was no say from any UK representatives in this EU law (having left the EU), that we have no alternative but to adopt.
My mate Phil explains the finer points in this youtube video, including what a disaster not passing such EU laws into UK law would be for the UK.

Just because on balance the EU doesn't work for us doesn't mean they were without some valid ideas. They were good on some green issues and why waste time and money creating legislation from scratch when we can take a working set up and tweak it to suit our needs.
I think you forget that many of us wanted to leave because of the changes from the idea of the European set up we voted to join. Had it simply stayed a common market rather than trying for unification by the back door we would still be members.
