The author suggests that the United Kingdom would remain semi-sovereign even in the event of a vote in the June 2016 referendum to remain. The legislation relating to the emergency brake and child benefits will need the support of the European Parliament and is open to scrutiny by the European Court of Justice. But semi-sovereignty also protects the social rights of ordinary British citizens, and losing them could be costly.
