Coalition Repeal Bill


On May 19th, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced what has been dubbed 'The Great Repeal Bill' with this promise:

"And as we tear through the statute book, we'll do something no government ever has: We will ask you which laws you think should go."

Dicky P would like to make sure we that we have as many people as possible, ready to roll, just in case Nick totally astounds us by actually turning his words into actions.

Thanks, Gotty. :-)

Check out the Billy Connolly vid posted there for a bit of anti-righteous Friday fun.

Done, mate, and the badge/link is posted in my sidebar. ;-)

What about repealing the law that says we can't execute politicians?

PJH said...

What about repealing the incest laws, or those involving sex with dead people?

No? Typical politicians.

I fully expect suggestions for repealing the smoking ban to be taken as seriously as my two laughable suggestions above.

Nice one PJH.
I'm trying to get laws on sado-masochism, necrophilia and bestiality repealed. Do you reckon I have a chance or am I just flogging a dead horse?

You didn't explain why an amendment to the smoking ban is laughable, PJH, you selfish, brainwashed fucktard.

Mr D Puddlecote@22:07 23rd May:

I didn't explain why an amendment to the smoking ban would be laughable, because that's clearly neither what I said, or what I implied.

Nor does it happen to be what I think, despite your apparent thoughts to the contrary. I find being unable to smoke while reading the newspaper or typing away in the pub, drinking beer an annoyance of the highest order as much as I imagine most other smokers in the same situation find.

What I said is that the politicians will probably treat the suggestion of such an amendment in much the same manner as they would my two laughable suggestions.

What was that about being a fucktard?

Lern2read, twat.

By the way Mr. P, it behooves you not to attempt sock-puppetry on my (or anyone else's come to think of it) blog. Your rather childish comment there (driven, I assume, by your blatant, (deliberate?) misinterpretation of my most above) was not approved.

Dick Puddlecote said...

It's a fair cop.

In defence, I must say that just after clicking publish, I read your comment again and noticed I may have misunderstood the sentiment. I thought of deleting it but figured eating humble pie (as now) was prefereable to letting a possible sarky 'anti' off scot free (I hate them with the fury of an angry god). Very happy to now offer my apologies. :)

Regarding the last bit, I'm afraid to say that, until you posted that, I didn't even know you had a blog so whatever you're referring to there isn't my doing.

Mr. P:

If that's the case, then my apologies for the accusation.

The comment appeared exactly 5 minutes after your comment here, from a newly created Blogger profile, and was the first derogatory comment I'd had on there, and was very similar in tone to your post.

That should seal it for you, then. I only comment as Dick P, never anon. If I wanted to insult you, I'd have done so as me ... like above.

I don't do shrinking violet. ;-)
