    Default Britannia waives the rules

    Well, that's that inconvenient, old-fashioned parliament thing done away with then...

    (1) A Minister of the Crown may by order make provision for either or both of the following purposes—

    (a) reforming legislation;

    (b) implementing recommendations of any one or more of the United Kingdom Law Commissions, with or without changes.

    I think we're all fecked - to put it mildly.

    You've come right out the other side of the forest of irony and ended up in the desert of wrong.

    This is truly frightening .

    I just hope we never get a nutter in place willing to use it in the manner that is so obvious.

    True.

    Thing is though, I can't believe how little media coverage this is getting considering it's probably the biggest insult to parliamentary democracy ever.

    John Humphrys mentioned it in passing on the Today program a few weeks ago, but essentially there has been bugger all coverage.

    This bill will allow any goverment minister to ride roughshod over any existing legislation and 'interpret' any findings of the law commissions to suit their own ends.

    What price democracy?

    Is it surprising given the way that New Lier run rings around the media. If some of them learnt to do research and dig deep ....

    It looks very much like Blair, the nutter who's too busy smoking crack at the moment.

    You wish.

    It also allows changes to common law, Magna Carta, and Habeus Corpus. the bedrock of our constitution.

    How long before they 'defer' general elections due to the 'war on terrorism'?

    So who is giving odds on the first use of this?

    ID cards?
    90 day detention of terrorist suspects?

    What do you think?

    I think everone should be declared a potential terrorist suspect - it's only fair.
