New Labour's Enabling Act

The potential to abuse is there, but then with our unwritten constitution potentially any government can do as it pleases subject to international law. The Poll Tax illustrated that point: there was no mandate to introduce the legislation in the form it finally appeared, yet rarely attending members of the unelected House of Lords made it a Statute. :(

Frankly the Treaty of Rome ought to be a greater cause of concern but rather oddly, is not. :roll:

QED - The UK needs a written constitution (written in plain English) and an effective bill of rights. The Yanks have given us all the lessons needed to make sure that our version would work. I'm happy with the old maxim that the thing that should disqualify anyone from taking on public office is that they want to do it in the first place.
