The Great Repeal Act/Freedom Bill

A good idea from the Liberal Democrats (Hat tip: Spy blog).

They’ve asked people to nominate legislation they think should be repealed and have a list of 10 pieces of legislation they’d repeal to start with, including the Civil Contingencies Act, Identity Cards Act, Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 (which gave us control orders…) and the exclusion zone around Parliament within which you need prior permission to organise a protest.

Repealing the legislation on the list would certainly be a good start at rolling back the assaults on British liberty we’ve seen over the past 10 to 15 years.

I’ve suggested they add the Sidelining and Undermining of ParliamentLegislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006.
