junking dumb laws

Her Majesty’s Government is seeking public input to remove silly and burdensome laws that have accumulated over the years. What a task!

We’re working to create a more open and less intrusive society. We want to restore Britain’s traditions of freedom and fairness, and free our society of unnecessary laws and regulations – both for individuals and businesses.

Nigel Powell puts it well: “So the new UK government has set up a site called Your Freedom asking for public votes on which laws to repeal and which to keep.

It’s just about the most unreal thing you could ever imagine a government doing….

“Still it’s a noble exercise and an unbelievably bold attempt to move the antiquated, broken, discredited and inefficient art of government and politics into a new century.”
