A law unto themselves


While my sacrum was busy digging itself painfully into my other lower vertebrae whenever I so much as blinked, the government cleverly introduced the boring-when-you-first-hear-about-it-but-actually-terrifying-when-you-think-about-it Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill. In a nutshell, it permits government ministers to dream up new criminal offences without having to go through all that tedious Act of Parliament nonsense.

I don't have time to go into detail about this insanity. Luckily, others have done it for me, so hie ye away to Chicken Yoghurt, Europhobia and Right Links (to whom I wouldn't normally link, but it's taken the least socialist Labour government in history to push me into unholy alliance with Tories).

In the meantime, I'm writing to my MP; no, "Andy", I haven't forgotten you, there'll be more about you tomorrow.

Thanks for the Link, I hope you don't feel too uncomfortable. Fact is, unless we all work together this abuse of Civil Liberties is never going to end.
