LibDems in Liberal “Freedom Bill” Shocker!

Maybe there is something to this “the Orange Bookers are taking-over” story. Nick Clegg plans to get rid of the following top-ten illiberal laws:

1. Restrictions on protests in Parliament Square – Sections 132 to 138; Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005
2. Identity Cards – Identity Cards Act 2006
3. Extradition to the US – Part 2, Extradition Act 2003
4. Conditions on public assemblies – Section 57, Clause 123, Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003
5. Criminalising trespass –Sections 128 to 131, Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005
6. Control orders – Section 1, Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005
7. DNA retention – Sections 78-84, Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001, Sections 9-10, Criminal Justice Act 2003
8. Public interest defence for whistleblowing, Official Secrets Act 1989
9. Right to silence, Sections 34-39, Public Order Act 1994 – England and Wales
10. Hearsay evidence, Sections 114-136, Criminal Justice Act 2003

You can suggest an illiberal law to repeal online here. Guido would like to see the repeal of income tax, it was after all introduced as a temporary measure to help finance the war against Napoleon in 1799.

Cameron’s Liberal Conservatives would be wise to support the bill, it would be good practice for a future governing coalition… you don’t think that was Clegg’s intention by any chance?

Quote of the Day

A senior Brexiter:

“If Theresa and Julian have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now fucked us over.”
