British officials remain indoctrinated with "EU ways of thinking" that must be eradicated to make Brexit Britain more competitive, Lord Frost said on Monday as he called for a bonfire of Brussels red tape. He told MPs on the European Scrutiny Committee that a revolution was needed to "normalise" EU law still on Britain’s rulebook and return them to UK common law traditions, which are "lighter touch" and less risk averse. Lord Frost said: "Lots of our bureaucracy and our regulatory systems have had to operate within a prescriptive EU law framework." "We have internalised principles of EU law and EU ways of thinking about things for the last 50 years, which is harder to eradicate because it's quite subtle," the Cabinet minister and former Brexit negotiator said. Lord Frost said he was recruiting for a task force that would focus on how to diverge from EU rules to give Brexit Britain a global competitive edge over European businesses in areas such as financial services. "I have a role in making sure that what we put before Parliament is genuinely reforming, genuinely consistent with deregulation and the spirit of Brexit and and goes forward on that basis," he told MPs in comments that will fuel Brussels’ anxiety about Britain’s plans to diverge from EU rules. The Brexit trade deal has level playing field provisions and an enforcement system that can allow either side to hit the other with tariffs if divergence is too dramatic. Lord Frost added: "I personally profoundly believe that it's a huge advantage to a country to have the control over its own laws and the ability to design arrangements that suit its own traditions and ways of doing things."
