The Abolition of Parliament Bill

Liberty Central has a good post on the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill, also known as the Abolition of Parliament Bill. The post details an amendment that would have exempted certain other acts form it's wide ranging power to allow any minster to change any law they choose. The amendment covers just about every major constitutional act that has ever been passed, and yet the government rejected it. Proof positive that this bill isn't to do with letting ministers cut back on red tape (ha ha, like they where ever going to do that) and has everything to do with letting the government change the constitution on a whim.
