Name the laws you want axed:

Nick Clegg will today invite the public to nominate laws, regulations and infringements to their liberty they want repealed in the biggest rebalancing of the relationship between the state and individuals in almost 200 years.

The Deputy Prime Minister will promise to listen to any reasonable suggestion on how to scale back official intrusion into everyday lives and the red tape choking business.

The coalition has already set out plans to scrap Labour's controversial ID cards scheme, end universal DNA databases, review the use of CCTV cameras and end vetting rules restricting adults' contact with children.

But sources say the Government wants to go 'much further'.

'We have made a good start but we now want people's ideas on how to undo all the damage done by the years of Labour government,' said one.

Mr Clegg will launch a 'Your Freedom' website, so the public can propose getting rid of pointless regulation and unnecessary bureaucracy.

The first thing i would do is get rid of the fiercely opposed Digital Economy Bill. Fair enough, something should be done about file sharing, but that Bill gave too many people too much power.

The daft law which means parents have to be called into school to put a plaster on a child! I could fully understand it if the childs finger is falling off, but its a nightmare for working mums who are called to apply a plaster as the child will not calm down

This is the case in my girls school!

Not sure what type of law that would be lol but its there and in the way!

Changes which received great public attention included:

* Sections 34-39, which substantially changed the right to silence of an accused person, allowing for inferences to be drawn from their silence.
* Sections 54-59, which gave the police greater rights to take and retain intimate body samples.
* Section 60, which increased police powers of unsupervised "stop and search".

The whole of Part V which covered collective trespass and nuisance on land and included sections against raves (63-67, including the "repetitive beats" definition[1]) and further sections against disruptive trespass, squatters, and unauthorised campers – most significantly the criminalisation of previously civil offences. This affected many forms of protest including hunt sabotage and anti-road protests.

plus many other changes

One law has already fallen, but not for want of government trying. The European Court of Human Rights rules that random stop and search under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act is illegal

lol must be a welsh thing, No it is by law that carers cannot apply plasters, I used to be a childminder and was told the same,
In the end I had to get a parent to give me written permission to apply a plaster to her child if need be.

:o dread to think what was on the paper towel! I remember the school thick paper towel! even if it was 11 years ago lol

+1 I got told from tescos that I couldnt copy a few of my baby naked when he was tiny, I managed to get them developed through photobox, I could understand it if all different children nude, but I had picks of the same boy through the whole thing and only 2 of a nude 2 month old.

So now i panic of taking pictures of my children in a park incase I catch another kid in the background!

He obviously thinks he's winning the 'war on drugs':-D

Police incompetence aside, it's an unwinnable war that wastes money.

Assisted suicide laws need relaxing, especially for the terminally ill who can't physically end their suffering on their own. It's the cruellest of jokes, like putting medicine on a high shelf.

How much has 'anti-terrorism' legislation cost the taxpayer ?.

With all the dud arrests and subsequent compensation claims and extradition claims etc., I reckon that should seriously be reviewed/overhauled.

I do remember a story taking a photo of his child at a playground being told to stop. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23427400-park-warden-tells-parents-they-cant-photograph-their-own-daughter-playing-on-swings.do

Also of a man who was accused of possessing child pornography when a the "baby in the bath" shot of his own child was found on his phone. I don't know how it ended though. Here's a similar story http://www.parentdish.co.uk/2009/09/23/innocent-bath-time-photos-lead-to-arrest/

no way near the trillions of pounds wasted on the war against drugs thats for sure

for what return exactly?

funny that the home office delayed handing over a foi request to norml because it was of risk of undermining there talk that they are winning the war against drugs......then they made the mistake of sending the report with the comments attached detailing all their thoughts and worries attached to it.......talk about incompetent:-D

me and hubby have this arguement often over drugs!

He feels if they legalised drugs then the drugs on the market would be so much more safer as they would be tested better. Plus if you can buy them legally from a proper store you would know you are getting the proper goods.

Now me who has never bothered with drugs just feels if they are legallised it would make it easier and encourage children/teens to mess with them more.

Hubby reckons legal or not, more and more kids are trying them and able to get their hands on them.

I just think its a scary thought! Realistically I would love my kids to take after me and not be interested in drugs, but only time will tell!

i understand you concerns but they are unfounded as has been shown in various studies in countries where drugs have been decriminalised(to a certain extent) the figures hvnt gone up in fact they have reduced the amount of people taking drugs if anything fter the intial "interest" has subsided

we arent talking about having them in every corner shop we are talking licensed premises and under strict controls for certain harder drugs on license

billions of pounds wasted not to mention police/courts/prison man hours etc and the crime associated with it

Hubby says this too, Part of me feels it could be like when we turn 18 the novelty of drinking legally wears off pretty quick!
but before you 18 you think its so much better.

Could work the same way with people and drugs. Once legallised the novelty may wear off.

As much as hubby feels they should be legalised he has always said he would drill into the children the down side of drugs too. He spent most of his uni time using them, But since being in the Navy he isnt interested, but still likes to have his say on the whole issue :)

As Bill Hicks says ... its great that there's a war on drugs, which the government are seemingly losing. Which means the stoners are winning it. Ha, genius :-)

I don't know about that theory. Once I could legally drink, I got a LOT more pished than before. Once I could regularly obtain weed ... I smoked a lot more than before.

However, with that experience developed responsibility and responsible drug use. And later came the decision to quit both - a decision which was right for me at the right time.

I have no issue with any of my 3 children experimenting with drugs if they fully understand what they are doing and if they do it responsibly - with other responsible people around them. This is what I did, and it did no harm.

well you started of doubting the theory then you went on to confirm that it actually works:)
