“The government talks about repatriation of EU powers. What does this actually mean, and could it work? The only solution the government seems to be able to offer to its braying backbenchers in light of last week’s debate on an EU referendum is to propose to repatriate powers to the UK from the EU. Cameron has this week urged the speeding up of work to determine how this could work, and has launched a broadside against Brussels putting the City of London under ‘constant attack’, while Ed Miliband pinned Cameron down on the issue of repatriation at PMQs. So is there actually any substance to Cameron’s bluster? This week’s column has a go at working that out.”
