If UK regulation is so bad that we need freeports to get rid of it in some places why not change the law everywhere so everyone can have the same advantage in the whole UK? Or would that stop the advantages being captured for private gain by a few at cost to the rest of us?

Well, yes, free trade through free ports. That does sound like an excellent idea.
