Whislt there is a significant section of our society who are upset that the EU shouldn't be allowed to pass laws in the UK, the simple fact is that the UK government is perfectly capable of its own oppressive legislation, far worse than anything the EU tries to 'impose' on it. Like this proposed bill, for example.

Whilst the EU is more interested in bastardly things like Working Time Directives, ensuring more annual leave for employees, improving air quality, improving the quality of goods on sale in the EU, Anti Tax Avoidance rules, removing barriers such as mobile roaming charges across the UK, preventing discrimination just because someone is from country A in the EU rather then country B, and legislation around late payment of commercial debts. How very dare they.

The above bill is highly unlikely to become law as it is a private member's bill without government support, but the fact it is out there and isn't too far removed from the Investigatory Powers Act and other snooping they try and force on us.

Perhaps when, and if, your wife is subjected to threats and abuse on platforms such as FACEBOOK and you find out that the Police actually have no powers to take action against these scum then perhaps you will change your tune. I for one would welcome such a bill. I did offer my help to the Police to sort this matter out but was warned that I would be arrested if I took such action.

A good excuse to stop using the time thief that is Facebook, no?
