That’s what David Cameron (Conservative – U.K.) has made one of his campaign themes:
In a Sunday Times interview, the Conservative leader revealed the four pieces of legislation that would dominate his debut Queen’s speech ….
The centrepiece of the Tories’ Queen’s speech, to be held within the next month if the party forms a government, would be a “great repeal bill”.
This would scrap ID cards, home information packs and dozens of rarely enforced criminal offences introduced by Labour over 13 years.
Sounds like a plan. Why hadn’t we thought of that?
Alternative post title: Power Back to the People:
This vision of people power is not some pipe dream. Nor is it about rolling back the state for ideological reasons. It is because I believe that an overbearing government is crushing the sense of personal and social responsibility that is the essential element of a strong and successful society….
Government has become too big for its boots in this country. Ministers, officials, all the powers-that-be: they need to know their place, which is to serve the people, not to control them.
By George, I think he’s got it. Do we?
