It will be interesting to keep an eye on developments from this initiative courtesy of the UK’s new coalition government: “Your ideas, your freedom“.
“The Coalition Government is committed to restoring and defending your freedom – and we’re asking you to participate”
According to the site:
“We’re working to create a more open and less intrusive society. We want to restore Britain’s traditions of freedom and fairness, and free our society of unnecessary laws and regulations – both for individuals and businesses.
This site gives you the chance to suggest how we can do this. Your ideas will inform government policy and some of your proposals could end up making it into bills we bring before Parliament to change the law.
So if there are any laws or regulations you’d like us to do away with, then first, check if there are any similar ideas here already and then add your comments to it and rate it to move it up the list. If it’s not here, then add it! And remember – we want you to suggest ideas for removing laws and regulations, rather than ideas for creating them.”
Hopefully something positive will come out of the submissions.
