Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill - part 3
I have been talking about this bill on a forum and spotted some more problems with it.
This bill doesn't protect constitutional law which means a minister could repeal or amend the fundamental basis of our legal system such as the Bill of Rights, Magna Carta and Habeas Corpus. It would be possible, for instance, to replace our legal system with a system based on Napoleonic Law (the system the EU uses) with a handful of statutory instruments. A minister could even turn the country back into an absolute monarchy by repealing the Magna Carta.
