Stop Local Councils creating and setting fines

Councils will be fining us for breathing the wrong way soon.

I understand the need as people will abuse parking etc without a deterent but there are so many fines and they are huge.

Fines to be set and collected centrally then redistributed to stop councils using it as an underhand revenue source.

Why is this idea important?

Stop Govt and Local Councils from abusing Anti-terrorist legislation

We have this legislation to deal with terrorism and it has been used to:

Remove an old man from the Labour party conference for heckling

Parents suspected of lying on their childs school application form are followed, photographed for weeks.

There have been many more cases and local govt and the police have proven themselves as not trustworthy enough to utilise the law as intended. The legislation should be redefined as to be only used in cases involving terrorism.

Stop criminal records for small offences

I'm particularly thinking of Local Govt here. You can get criminal records for dropping litter, leaving your bin out on the wrong day etc etc.

Criminal records for serious crimes only. Will free up the courts and save money.
