Sunset Clauss for Existing legislation

Introduce a two parliament automatic removal of laws. At the end of the first parliament, the complete set of laws to carry forward must be collated. This will then be presented to the people at election time. If the popular majority of people vote to keep a law, then it will continue. If they vote against, then the law continues until the end of the next parliament and is then struck off.

Thus any law voted against will either be automatically removed or will have to be redrafted by parliament. The redrafting should also include the ability for the people to get involved, with proposed amendments, etc.

Sunset clauses on Existing Laws

Introduce one act of parliament that automatically removes all laws after two parliaments. The electorate will then vote for or against each law on the statute book at the end of the first parliament. If a law is voted against, then parliament must redraft the law (in a substantive way) or drop it. Then the cycle begins again.

During the redrafting stage, the parliament must allow more involvement of the populace.

For those that fear that having no law for say Murder etc could happen. Just remember that this is still a common law country, so the courts still have the common law to fall back on.
