REVEALED: Theresa May is planning 'BREXIT DAY' to celebrate independence from EU

UK Prime Minister Theresa May is to celebrate the UK leaving the European Union with a bash entitled Brexit Day.

And the the occasion is set to be marked with an event, similar to US Independence Day, when all new laws will take effect.

One of the biggest issues facing the UK Government is how it will separate British domestic laws from laws that have been driven through in Brussels.

And in order to successfully achieve a changeover they have to ratify a day which will go down in history as "Brexit Day".


Brexit Day is on the cards and those who support it will celebrate

Mrs May announced plans to introduce a “Great Repeal Bill” in the next Queen's Speech, which will repeal the European Communities Act 1972 and incorporate European Union law into domestic law, “wherever practical”.

And a Parliamentary report has revealed: "The Government has indicated that these legal changes within the Bill would take effect on “Brexit Day”: the day the UK officially leaves the European Union (EU)".

The claims were made in a Parliamentary briefing paper that was issued to Members of Parliament in the Commons.


Could the people of the UK organise street parties like this one during the Royal Wedding?

It was handed over before they voted for the Brexit bill to go through and before it received Royal Assent from Her Majesty the Queen.

The Brexit Day events are likely to be similar to that of those celebrated earlier this week on Commonwealth Day.

And insiders say it's likely that, as well as an event in Parliament, the occasion will be marked in style.


Theresa May's Government is planning for a Brexit Day

The United Kingdom became a fully-fledged member of the European Economic Community on New Year's Day 1973.

Ireland and Denmark also joined Britain in becoming the newest members of the Community at that time, bringing a total of nine states to the club.

At midnight a Union Jack flag was raised at the EEC's headquarters in Brussels to mark the occasion.


During the Royal Wedding lots of Britons took to the streets to celebrate

Celebrations were held on the streets of Brussels who enjoyed a torchlit procession.

More than 1,000 Britons relocated to Belgium in 1973 to take up their places as civil servants of the community.

At that time, Britain was given four votes within the Council and policy was focussed on public and environmental health.

However in the 44 years that has passed the EU has ballooned in size to 28 Member States, and is now building an army.

Membership applications by the UK to join the EEC were refused in 1963 and 1967 because the French President of the time Charles de Gaulle doubted the UK's political will.

Well Britain joined what is now the EU at midnight on 1st January 1973 - over 44 years ago. So you'll have to be at least 50 or so to remember when Britain wasn't in it.

Theresa May to unveil plans for converting EU law via 'Henry VIII clauses' later this month

Detailed plans for restoring the UK Parliament’s sovereignty after Brexit are to be published within days, The Telegraph understands.

Proposals for converting EU law into UK law and repealing the legislation that took Britain into the bloc will be published when Brexit is triggered.

A small number of drafts of the White Paper, which is said to be around 50 pages long, have been circling Whitehall in recent weeks.

Government sources said the document will be published when Theresa May formally triggers Article 50 (external - login to view)by the end of this month.

Whitehall figures believe the date will be Wednesday 29th March.

Proposals will reveal full details for how the Government will end the rule of European law by introducing legislation dubbed the “Great Repeal Bill”.

Two fundamental changes will be proposed. The first is repealing the European Communities Act 1972, the historic law that took Britain into the EU.

The second is for thousands of European laws, dictats and directives to be turned into UK law before Brexit is completed in mid-2019.

However, ministers are braced for “controversy” because they propose doing so though a little-known power that is 500-years old.

So-called “Henry VIII clauses” give the Government powers to change old laws that have already been passed by Parliament.

However, critics say they avoid scrutiny and - crucially - circumvent the Lords because it means less parliamentary debate than usual.

“The provision of Henry VIII clauses will be in there,” said one senior government source. “It will probably be one of the most controversial bits of the Bill.”

Ministers say the clauses will help to quickly update thousands of EU rulings, many of which name European bodies that will no longer apply after Brexit.

“We would be converting EU law into British law forever otherwise. It would literally be years and years and years,” said the same source.

But Tom Brake, the Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman, said the party would to try and block any legislation involving such clauses.

"The Government should know – we are putting them on notice – the Government are playing with fire over the Great Repeal Bill," he said.

"This Bill is the biggest power grab since the days of Henry VIII. The Liberal Democrats will not sit there and let the Government say all the right things while eroding vital rights and protections that makes Britain what it is.

"We will, if needed, grind the Government’s agenda to a standstill, unless proper and rigorous safeguards are given over the Great Repeal Bill. The ball is now in the Prime Minister’s court.”


Brexit Secretary David Davis

David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, has previously defended the plans. He said at the Tory conference last year: "To ensure continuity, we will take a simple approach. EU law will be transposed into domestic law, wherever practical, on exit day.

"It will be for elected politicians here to make the changes to reflect the outcome of our negotiation and our exit.

"That is what people voted for: power and authority residing once again with the sovereign institutions of our own country."
