A fresh horror: The Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill
A Minister of the Crown may by order make provision for either or both of the following purposes—
(a) reforming legislation;
(b) implementing recommendations of any one or more of the United Kingdom Law Commissions, with or without changes.
Whitehall officials have told council chiefs they are considering cancelling the May 2007 polls because of possible plans for a local government shake-up.
The move would avoid electing councils which would sit for just one year.
Yes and then people would have to walk to a polling station twice in one whole year, and local councilors would be forced to stop thinking of how all our lives could be made better in a thousand and one ways and go to the fuss and bother of putting themselves in front of the punters. Untidy, you see.
Germany had the Reichstag Fire. We’ll have the Westminster Ewbank.
