UK Gov’t Launches ‘Your Freedom’ Website To Seek Laws Worth Repealing

Firefalcon writes “The UK Government launched Thursday the ‘Your Freedom’ website, headed by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, to ‘identify laws that should be repealed.’ In a recent tweet, Police State UK pointed out an article in the New Statesman which appeals for people to call on the Government to repeal the ill thought-out Digital Economy Act that was rushed through Parliament without sufficient scrutiny. While part of the Act is regarding the digital TV switchover, other sections allow for users to be restricted or disconnected from the Internet at the behest of copyright owners, which goes against the principle of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ that has been in place since the Magna Carta.”
