Repeal the ban on TAC airguns (ie: Brocock)

Part 5 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003 added airguns that use a self-contained air cartridge system to Section 5 of the Firearms Act, alongside real handguns, thus made practically totally illegal. Only around 1500 were surrendered and 6000 put on a firearm license. BASC estimates that around 68000 are still in circulation, the owners of which will face prosecution should they be found in possession or decide to hand them in to the police. Essentially, somewhere near 70000 new criminals were created overnight. Another 'feel-good' law that achieved nothing but the destruction of people's hobbies and property.

Why is this idea important?

Digital Economy Act

The Digital Economy Act was pushed through the parliament in the washup by the previous administration. It was a bill that was lobbied for extensively, by money-concerned corporations, with little to none of the ISPs having to enforce the Act being consulted.

It should be repealed unconditionally.

Revise / Abolish HTM 01/05

This regulation relates to cross infection control in dental practices.

It is largely driven from a weak evidence base based around prions.

It has a "best practice" and an "acceptable minimum"

If the evidence is strong enough for best practice, how can it be safe to define a minimum standard without compromising patient safety?

It isnt!! The best / desirable practice level is a classic case of ass covering by legislators. They know it would be prohibitivley expensive and very difficult for most existing practices to implement, especially in a cash limited area such as NHS dentistry. It also gives quangos such as the Care Quality Commission an opportunity to interfere in our practices.

This legislation was bounced around for several years before being issued. It is flawed, and should be revised to remove the nonsensical "best practice" definition. Either we NEED it, or we dont. The overwhelming evidence base is that the "acceptable minimum" is perfectley adequate.

Firearms Laws

I am a British Citizen, I am licensed in Australia to carry a firearm in the line of my Job as a Bodyguard and Cash-in-Transit officer. I would like the UK to fall in line with the rest of the world in regards to Bodyguard, Security officers, Police officers. I would also like all firearms laws from 1997 remove and instead of the citizens being punished for doing nothing wrong, the criminals are the ones that are punished. Since the 1997 Gun Laws the crime rate in the UK has not reduced it has in fact gone up.
