RSS Feed for 'Restoring civil liberties' discussion

Civil liberties are the basic rights and freedoms that protect an individual. They prevent the state from abusing power or intruding in citizens’ lives unnecessarily. Legislation can help keep people safe, but excessive legislation can erode civil liberties.

We are determined to restore fundamental civil liberties, while still protecting our society. You can read our ideas on how we do this in in Our Programme for Government, but we also really want your views. We hope to include the most constructive of your ideas in our Freedom Bill later in 2010.

Question

Which current laws would you like to remove or change because they restrict your civil liberties?

Before you post your idea please search to see if someone else has posted your idea already. If they have, you can add your comments. This will help both visitors and moderators track the debate. And remember - we want you to suggest ideas for removing laws and regulations, rather than ideas for creating them.
