David Davis says there won't be 'Mad Max-style' free-for-all after Brexit

The Brexit Secretary will say that leaving the European Union will not plunge the United Kingdom into a "Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction", and that ministers will use the opportunity to improve standards.

'Take a auto produced here in Austria to be exported to the UK.

"Britain's plan, its blueprint for life outside of Europe, is a race to the top in global standards, not a regression from the high standards we have now".

'Such mutual recognition will naturally require close, even-handed co-operation between these authorities and a common set of principles to guide them, ' he said.

According to various reports he will stress that fears the United Kingdom will embark on a deregulatory drive post-Brexit that will result in "Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction" are completely unfounded.

Brexit Secretary David Davis has been getting quite a bit of stick over the past twelve hours for claiming that the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union won't result in high-powered cars careening across a desert landscape with Mel Gibson hanging out the side of said cars. Now that vehicle only has to undergo one series of approvals, in one country, to show that it meets the required regulatory standards.

"Frankly, the competitive challenge we in the United Kingdom and the European Union will face from the rest of the world, where 90 percent of growth in markets will come from, will not be met by a reduction in standards", he added.

"They fear that Brexit could lead to an Anglo-Saxon race to the bottom". High quality, comprehensive, gold standard'.

However, the Brexit Secretary sought to reassure the fears of Brexiteers that Britain will seek to remain completely aligned with European Union rules after Brexit.

"The more likely scenario is that this Government will engage in a race to the bottom on standards - putting at risk both environmental protections and the hard-won rights of British workers and consumers in the process".

Improving animal welfare will be a priority after Brexit, the Environment Secretary will say today.

"This will be a crucial part of ensuring our future economic partnership is as open, and trade remains as frictionless, as possible", Davis said.

The speech is the thid made by senior Cabinet figures to set out the government's road map for Brexit.

Davis also said the United Kingdom hopes "mutual recognition" of regulations will continue after Brexit. "And that there will be enforcement of such a border in terms of not only tariffs, but verification that the United Kingdom actually meets the standards they need to export into the European Union", he said, also listing checks for counterfeited goods or trafficking.

"Most businesses here don't trade internationally, but they are still bound up in the red tape that comes with the EU".
