Do you like living in a democracy?This is the scariest legislation I have ever seen. I thought ID cards and the National Identity Register were bad, but that's just peanuts to this. We need to start campaigning - write to your MP, hand out flyers, and link to the Save Parliament website.
Well, enjoy it while you can, because it might not last much longer if the UK government get their way.
The boringly-named Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill is in fact a very dangerous piece of legislation. It grants any minister the ability to amend, replace, or repeal existing legislation. The frightening thing is this: they would be able to make major changes to the law without Parliament being able to examine it properly, taking away the ability of Parliament to meaningfully represent the citizens of this country.
Failing that, cheap farmhouses in the north of France suddenly look very attractive indeed.
