"We're taking back control"

The primary objective seems to be for rightwing gov types to take control of the rulemaking back from Brussels so they can walk back personal, business and consumer protections that have been enacted across the EU - with the apparent end goal of turning the UK into a mini-USA or libertarian paradise

Nothing to do with the actual PEOPLE, who will have even less rights and control of their lives as a result.

As for Libertarian paradises: they exist
