Which laws should we scrap?
Submitted by Marcus on Thu, 2010-07-01 08:03
In a historic move, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is asking people to submit ideas about which UK laws need to be scrapped.
He has already set up a website for contributions called "Your Freedom":
It remains to be seen whether the Government will actually act on the popular suggestions, or if it will just end up as a glorified talking shop.
After a quick look through I have seen some encouraging proposals such as the decriminalizing of drugs, allowing protests outside parliament, removing restrictions on fire-arm use, overturning anti-smoking ban and removing restrictions on Sunday trading.
So my question to SOLOists is what law or regulation would you repeal if you could choose just one?
I think I would overturn the ability of the Treasury to prosecute people for not paying taxes. (Assuming that is just one law.)
