Nick Clegg on the Freedom Bill

Nick has an article out today on the eGov monitor website about the Liberal Democrat proposals for a “Freedom Bill” which would axe unnecessary laws.

You can read more about the laws the Liberal Democrats would axe – and nominate your own – on the party’s website and you can watch Nick’s speech from conference where he launched the plans:

    As a liberal Conservative, I’d be more likely to vote LD if you had Clegg as your leader. He and Laws are very impressive. Ming is more of a social democrat than a liberal, as was Kennedy and Ashdown. But at least those two were popular with voters….

    This is a step in the right direction and I believe many people will be extremely happy. Some of the laws I would like to see repealed or changed are as follows
    1) The human rights act. Too many people use this law as a tool to evade deportation etc and it should be modified to exclude criminals etc.
    2) Repeal the EU treaties. We dont want to be in the EU at all and were never consulted nor did we have a vote or say.
    3) Repeal or change the political correctness laws.
    4) Bring back capital punishment as well as corporal punnishment in schools

    Regards

    All the radios in our cars, radios in our homes, all the radios in our mobile phones not to mention all the portables in our work places and our sheds and allotments will be made obsolete if the bill to digitise all radio broadcasting is enacted. Through the BBC’s propaganda services we are told that if we change now our obsolete phones will either be recycled or sent to South Africa for the poor to receive radio broadcasts. We can all see through this smoke and mirrors approach and the papers will roast any party that is seen to enact this crazy piece of legislation. The effect of this proposed change will be similar to that of the Poll Tax. Please please stop it now.

    My proposition is to analyse and change the law in regards to people being able to defend themselves in their own homes. I think a pepper spray or a tazer or some sort of protection should be allow, otherwise you are very much on the merci of the intruder. who is this law protecting and why? I was stalked for quite some time and even went to the police, but they told me I was unable to defend myself because I was in risk to go to jail. It sounds absurd and insane. I truly believe it deserves analysis. Thank you.
