In December 2009 I wrote a number of articles about repealing the humongous number of laws made by Nanny.
Here is an extract from one of them:
Did you know that since coming to orifice in 1997 ZaNuLabour have, via its obsession with legislation, created new crimes at a rate of nearly one a day?
Hardly surprising that the police tend to appear heavy and handed and clueless, they simply can't keep up with the legislation and don't know how to interpret it.
Where were the Tories and "Liberal Democrats" during this period?
We have been let down big time by the "opposition".
Why have ZaNuLabour been allowed to get away with this?
You do realise folks that, as entertaining and cathartic as it may be to sit around saying 'isn't this awful?', unless we actually do something to reverse this trend we are up shit's creek without a paddle?
'What can we do?' I hear you cry...
1 Make a list of the laws that you want repealed...."
In a later article, in December, I wrote this:
"I sent the following to David Cameron (copied to the Independent).
Politicians Have Failed The British People
Whilst my views, on their own, may not count for much; the fact that others agree with me (see the comments) ought to spur you to action, I hope, lest the "Repeal Party" actually takes physical form.
Now, guess what?
Nick Clegg, known in Tory circles as "Number Two", is to call on the public to nominate laws that they think should be repealed.
Errmmm...could it be that someone somewhere may actually have woken up to the fact that we are fed up with the minutiae of our lives being controlled by the state?
As I asked for then, I ask again, please send in a list of the laws that you want repealed:
1 Stating, in a coherent well reasoned manner, why they should be repealed.
2 The exact legislation you are referring to, ie name and date of passing by parliament.
I am happy to collate a well documented list, coupled with a well reasoned case, and send to Clegg.
The state should be afraid of the people, the people should not be afraid of the state!
