Every new law, or change to an existing act should have a fixed ‘honeymoon’ period (2-5 years), at which point, parliament should vote on it again, and only if passes a second time it should become permanent, otherwise  it should be automatically repealed.

This will minimise the number of temporary laws brought in that are not removed (e.g. 50% income tax) or are forgot about.

It should also make it easier to pass temporary measures, yet prevent the proliferation of terrible laws – after all, if it works parliament should vote to keep it

Why is this idea important?

 

The sheer fact that this exercise is taking place is a poor reflection on the state of the law.

Many laws are created every term that are excessive and ill-conceived
