Freedom Act - just a thought

****

Amidst all the froth and bother about scrapping laws (and Nick just amend the smoking ban and allow all shops to open on a Sunday), I've been struck by a thought.

If 'crowdsourcing' laws is such a good idea (and I'm not really so sure that it is) then why do we elect politicians? Surely such participation eliminates the need for represtentation?

So maybe we should just scrap politicians?

Just a thought.

Given the numbers that aren't so much about repealing stuff as adding yet more restriction and legislation it's a wet dream for some segments of our political profession.

It'll all end in tears :)
