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.

Why is this idea important?

In this digital age, people want to be involved in the detail far more. So this would enscrine a very basic and important principal into our democracy that the people come first, then politicians.
