REPEAL THE 4200 NEW LAWS BROUGHT IN OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS

Comment 9th September 2010

The Labour Government  brought in over 4200  new criminal offences during its rein.  That is  4200 new way of making us ‘the people’ criminals

The most dangerous and pernicious of Labours new laws which annihilate our civil liberties are:-

The Anti Terrorist Legislation 2000   and TheAnti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001   and The Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 which has been used to terrorize and subdue people who have no connection with terrorism whatsoever.  In one case the Anti Terrorism Act  was used  to arrest of Maureen Spalek  for “sending her child a birthday card”

The Proceeds of Crime act 2002 et seq which destroys the lives of business people if a client is less than honest by making them culpable for client’s dishonesty and allows police to seize anyone’s assets on mere suspicion that a crime may have been committed.   In one case allowed the seizure of thousands of documents on ‘arms to Iraq’ by the police preventing them from being submitted to the Iraq Inquiry.
