Bills Bills Everywhere

Yet another Queen's speech and yet another raft of legislation to tell us how to live our lives. The CSA is to be scrapped (hooray!) but is to be replaced (boo!) by a new agency (not sure if this is pantomime or farce!). Councils are to be given the powers to coerce you into driving certain cars at certain times in certain places(as Ken is already doing). More education regulation allowing interference from state agencies, giving them the power to sack headteachers they don't agree with, but as usual parents are not to be trusted to know what's best for their children and allowed to wield such power. CO2 emission targets to be set in law, no mention of the futility of such measures without global cooperation.

Well at least they're not going to reduce civil liberties under the heading of 'fighting terror', oh no hang on what's this I see.....
