1. Source of the constitution, so constitutionally we are bound to the EU. Counter: plenty of other sources and bc we’re uncodified, we can be more flexible in the future and eventually cut out EU as a source.
2. We have the ECHR as our main human rights legislation (even our own human rights act Blair did was just making the ECHR law). It impacts the Supreme Court when making decisions - look for any SC human rights case. Counter: Tory party wanted to remove this and replace with British bill of rights
3. EU law is sovereign to our own (look into disputes around fishing for example) so effects our law makers and arguably restricts them. Counter: Brexit means UK govt can soon decide whether we want to keep any EU laws or disregard them (this is a weak point ngl I’d try to think of a better one).

Hope this helps, I only did like 1 lesson on the EU so I don’t know everything but it should be enough

The 2nd point is false. The ECHR isn't part of the EU, it's from the Council of Europe which is a separate institution. A better counter to the 3rd point would also be that Britain can get out of most laws passed in the EU Parliament, making it not highly significant.

Wasn’t the HRA 1998 influence by the ECHR?

The European Court of Human Rights is part of the Council of Europe. It's used to enforce the HRA 1998. The European Court of Justice is the supreme court of the EU. The ECHR isn't part of the EU in any way.
