Martin Marprelate- A Man in the Street!

Great idea! Now for a start repeal or at least drastically water down the ban on smoking in pubs, clubs and other enclosed places as long as proper ventilation is installed and there is an alternative non-smoking bar etc for those who wish it. BTW I gave up smoking from 40 a day 22 years ago but I still feel strongly that people should have the choice to smoke or not and pubs etc the choice to let them do so or ban it as THEY and their owner/landlord/proprietor feel fit and NOT imposed on them and their customers by the Government!

Another day, another gimmick!

It doesn't add up...

Already much work has been done:

As 80% of all the rules and regulations applicable in the UK since 1972 began their life as EU directives then the simplest and possibly the only legal way to remove them is to repeal all the EU Acts and Treaties made since the original 1973 Act.

I was one of the mugs who voted yes in the 1972 referendum after I was conned by the great traitor Heath into believing the UK was joining the Europen Common Market.

So Mr. Clegg, as you wanted to have an EU referendum with the question In or Out, lets be having it rather than this pontless con trick Or,,
Lets replace all the EU Acts with a British Freedom and Independence Act and give us back our country and the ability to make and/or repeal our own laws without the interference of foreigners in Brussels.

Two groups of UK citizens have been deprived of the right to vote: convicted prisoners (the UK government is in any case under an obligation to take action in this respect following the 2005 judgment of the European Court of Human Rights in the Hirst No. 2 case) and UK citizens ordinarily resident abroad for more than 15 years, according to the most recent modification of the Representation of the People Act. This denial of voting rights, coupled with the exceptions made in respect of members of the armed forces, Crown servants and British Council staff, creates a discriminatory situation in breach of both the right to free movement of persons set out in the treaties of the European Union and of Article 3 of the additional Protocol to the European Convention on Human Rights. Such discrimination, founded on the assumption that after a certain time expatriates will become out of touch and lose interest in the government of their country, fails to take account of the fact that there are many legitimate reasons for living and working outside the UK as well as of the new technologies which enable expatriates to follow political news as closely as UK residents can.

West London Tory

The laws on foxhunting, speed cameras and speed limits need changing. They already look popular ones on the site so no doubt I'll contribute something myself. Hopefully some of these ideas might gather pace if people take the initiative. It's easy to be sceptical about consultation programmes but at least it's something else rotten, statist Labour would never have done.

Note to Clegg: I do know of Laws that can be brought back!! Danny's doing a good axeman job but is not as convincing.

Peter Thurgood

ANY public consultation has got to be good!

Can you imagine the old Labour government even considering letting the people have a say in anything?

Labour considered themselves to be our masters and we, their slaves to blindly obey everything they cared to throw at us.

Roger Helmer MEP

Pretty obvious, really. The Hunting Act. The Human Rights Act. The 1972 European Communities Act.

Is your Internet connection being censored and you would like to stick censorship where the sun doesn't shine? Would you prefer to stay anonymous, that your IP address is not logged with every access to someone's web page? Then look no further, you've found the solution!

Does Cleggy own this proxy service? I would strongly recommend using it when posting your desire to repeal the Magic Mushroom Act or regulations relating to wearing the full battle kit of the Order of the Knights Templar in Bradford.

Liking the tag cloud though. Let's see what we can big up?

David Galea

Let us open Grammar Schools? No, didn't think so... the Coalition knows best after all.

Mr P Lawson-Smith

We should scrap Part P (Electrical) to the Building Regulatons. It was designed to save the lives of those working on electrical installations and, at great cost and much paperwork, has failed so to do. The original proposal by The Deputy PM (JP) gave anticipated costs and benefits. The latest reports by Labour quantified the number of participants and certificates issued but gave no idea whether predicted benefits were achieved. They were not. The UK has one of the safest electrical contracting industries in the world and the cost and overburdening of Council Building Control Departments,who generally lack the time and skills , is unwarranted. A number of organisations are making good profits from paper passing. The exclusion of the "electrical cowboy" has not happened. Repeal of this Act and some associated Building Regulations would save time , money and would speed up work. The effect on electrical safety would be insignificant. Beware of advice from those with vested interests like ECA and IET (IEE) as they provide Part P training which is a duplicate of City and Guild Courses. There is absolutely no need for such duplication,

How about keeping British Summer Time permanently. It will not cost very much but will make many people very happy.

 Mr k.priest.   (please note my request for a window in my cell).

As an old Free born Englishman brought up and allowed to both think and say what I like(until recently) we should as a matter of urgency and national survival repeal the European Communities Act 1972 which has led to us being governed by unelected, unknown,undemocratic persons who might be raving communists or fascists or even martians none of whom we can get rid of and who are immune from prosecution for any crime committed whilst a employee of the european super state.

It's long past the time when we held an impartial cost benefit analysis on our membership which has been obtained through false representation and trickery by gutless,unpatriotic,incapable and probably corrupt uk politicians.

 Mr k.priest.   (please note my request for a window in my cell).

repeal the european human rights act. We in the UK don't need it , we have not slaughtered or imprisoned millions of our fellow citizens who did not agree with our political views unlike most of the other EU member states who have only now and very belatedly developed a small conscience. Our laws to protect the individual are vastly superior, they have been developed and amended where necessary over centuries of experience.

Repeal immediately any laws putting UK citizens into the hands of other legal jurisdictions for most are primitive, unjust and dishonest where they are not corrupt-this means the EU and the USA particularly.
