Repel ALL laws passed between 1997 to May 2010

I think the title says it all. The previous .governments' obsession with knee jerk reaction, popular vote seeking, capitulation to special interest group lobbying nhas resulted it 4000+ pieces of legislation. As ignorance of the law is still no defence in a court the chances of falling foul of any of these pieces of madness is high, and on the whole pointless.

Why is this idea important?

Drink Driving Laws

I have heard the this government is considering lowing the current limit, I feel this would be counter productive.  The Law is suffieciant as it is and would yet again change our social system where people can socialise together.  The people who drink too much and drive will carry on doing so regardless of the Law (usually the younger people) as they always haveand always will so why penalise sensible people.

Repeal All 1997-2010 Acts

It is possible that there has been the odd Act in the last 13 years which has benefited this country, but most have been ill-conceived and poorly drafted.  The most glaring examples are the Finance Acts which have required doubling the explicatory guides and the wasted court time in trying to interpret the foolishnesses which have been enacted.

Exceptions could be permitted, but the presumption should be repeal.

Repeal of the Hunting Act 2004

The Hunting Act 2004 has no practical purpose. The Chairman of the Government Inquiry into Hunting with Dogs, Lord Burns, told Parliament that there was no evidence that hunting was cruel and the last Government did not even try to measure the impact of the Hunting Act. Wild mammals are still being managed to exactly the same extent as they were before the Hunting Act with no benefit to animal welfare and very possibly an increase of suffering especially where alternative methods are less effective in dealing with sick and injured mammals.

The Better Government Initiative described the unting Act as a 'notorious example of bad Government' and a Crown Court Judge has said that it is "far from simple to inerpret or to apply". Thousands of hours of police time are being wasted trying to enforce an unworkable law whilst hundreds of ordinary people face potential criminal charges every time they attempt to carry out legal hunting activity. The Hunting Act should be repealed and hunting controlled by independent regulation.
