Limit number of new laws per year

Parliament should only be allowed to pass one new law per month. This will result in fierce prioritising and dropping of much new legislation. This should be enshrined in a written constitution that requires a referendum to change it.

Much of the interference in our lives could be curbed. Parliamentary hours would be vastly reduced.

The quality of our laws would be improved. MPs would take a new role as servants of the country instead of its lords and masters.

Why is this idea important?

Revoke firearm permits of convicted violent criminals and seize all their weapons

Mr Moult had been convicted of a violent offence, and imprisoned for it. Surely that is a breach of the conditions of whatever law allows the issue of a shotgun licence?

From the moment that someone is charged with a violent offence, there should be an automatic question asked by the police, 'Does this person have legal weapons?' They have access to the firearms register. They should confiscate all weapons at that stage and only return them if they are acquitted or charges are dropped. A caution should not count as an acquittal in this respect.

If convicted of a violent offence their right to own weapons and have permits should be permanently revoked.

Remove OFSTED interference in Holiday Clubs

No one disputes the need for suitable premises for Holiday Clubs, or adherence to commonsense Health and Safety standards, or CRB checks for Holiday Club staff. But when Holiday Clubs became subject to inspection by OFSTED thousands of voluntary clubs cancelled their provision. According to The Childcare (Exemptions from Registration) Order 2008 you are bound to register with OFSTED, as well as the Local Authority, if you run longer than 2hours a day (so a full morning or afternoon is out) or for longer than 14 days.

No end of parents groups, churches, schools, preschools etc would run Holiday Clubs if OFSTED would keep out of it. Why do they need to interfere during Holidays? Have they not heard of the concept of a Holiday? it is supposed to be when children can have fun, make things, do drama, music, outings, sport – all without worrying about a curriculum or education standards. IT'S A HOLIDAY!!!!!!

Taking OFSTED out of this kind of thing will save millions, liberate thousands of voluntary groups to go back to the great provision they used to make before this empire building, and be better for our children.

It's not the Taliban who will take over the country, its OFSTED, whose ever growing incursion into our children's lives, ever changing goal posts, ever earlier intervention is stressing out our teachers and preschool practitioners and not improving child education one bit.
