As I type this, hundreds, perhaps thousands of writers across the world are hunched in similar fashion over their own computers, pounding out stories of lissome young students having their bits clamped by dashing billionaires, nurturing their inner goddesses and frantically screaming safe words. Successful novels generate imitators that swoon in their wake like groupies, copying style and subject matter, but rarely capturing the zest or freshness of the original. Literary agents must be watching for that deluge of Fifty Shades rip-offs on their slush piles like Pacific islanders watch for tsunamis.

From employment rights to environmental standards, many of the most cherished legal protections in British life could be rewritten at will by the government under sweeping new powers proposed by the “great repeal bill”. David Davis, the minister in charge of shepherding this giant legislation through parliament, insists such authority will only be used to carry out whatever “technical changes” are deemed necessary to keep British law functioning as he negotiates the UK’s departure from the European Union. But campaigners and lawyers from both sides of the political spectrum have sounded alarm bells about the precedent, practicalities and purpose of a bill described as “one of the largest legislative projects ever undertaken” by the House of Commons library. The great misnomer The first and perhaps most cosmetic concern is that the exercise has been deliberately misnamed. Though styled after the radical great reform bill of 1832, it could, as … [Read more...] about ‘Great repeal bill’ offers little detail and even less security
