Several of these are 'reintroduced', others are too late anyway
Financial Services Bill
- Why didn't you think of that BEFORE giving them £80 billion of our money?
Fiscal Responsibility Bill
- Gordon Brown had a 40% of GDP 'rule'. He broke it - when does he get locked up in the Tower?
Personal Care at Home Bill
- Was previously turned down by Labour. They can't afford it anyway
Crime and Security Bill
- Under 16s are already the legal responsibility of their guardians. Why not enforce these existing laws?
- This has been published Labour policy for how long? Two years?
Flood and Water Management Bill
- Labour have been encouraging building on flood plains for ten years.
- Basically already exists, spread over a few different laws. The only bits that don't were personally vetoed earlier this year by Lord Mandelson in his capacity as Business Secretary.
Cluster Munitions (Prohibitions) Bill
- The UK signed the UN Convention on Cluster Munitions on 3rd Dec 2008. Already done!
Child Poverty Bill
- Labour have already missed their 2010 deadline for halving child poverty... They had ten years, and they manage a small decrease 1997-2004, followed by an increase since. According to a few charities, they've almost back where they started in 1997.
