The EU is holding back legislation until after the referendum

The EU are deliberately holding back on new legislation until after the EU referendum to avoid giving ammunition to the leave campaign.

Included in the queued up legislation is a proposal to increase the EU budget by €20bn, new guidelines increasing the freedom of movement rights and EU accession to the European Convention on Human Rights which will override domestic human rights legislation in all EU countries.

If the referendum goes the wrong way there is a lot of pain waiting for us as soon as it's over.
