Ignorance of the Law is now an excuse

Comment 5th August 2010

It is said that ignorance of the law is no excuse – this can no longer be valid as the previous government introduced something like 4000 new criminal offences added tot hose in existence before.  It is therefore impossible to avoid ignorance.

Therefore it should be mandatory to prove the individual being accused should have been reasonably expected to know the law they broke

Why does this matter?

It is an attempt to force the pace of repealing of unnecessary laws….
