Cloze Test Asked in Second Shift :

So has Britain’s EU membership caused it to be over-regulated? The OECD club of mostly rich countries has compared the extent of regulation in product and labour markets among its members and finds that Britain is among the least regulated countries in Europe [second only to the Netherlands on the first measure and to none on the second, see chart]. Indeed, Britain compares favourably with non-EU countries such as America, Australia and Canada. And there is little to suggest that, if it were to leave the EU, it would tear up many rules: in areas ranging from the environment to financial services, British lobbyists have been in the forefront of those calling for more regulation, and Brexit would be unlikely to change that.
Moreover, if a post-Brexit Britain wanted to retain full access to the single European market, it would almost certainly have to stick with most of the accompanying rules. Eurosceptics have suggested that the 90% of British small businesses which do not export to the rest of the EU should be exempted from all single-market regulation, but that would simply not work, since many of them supply bigger businesses that do export to the EU; and they also face competition within Britain from small firms elsewhere in the EU.
Besides, by far the most intrusive and costly regulations for business are those imposed at home, not by the EU.
