New government website sees calls for repeal of Digital Economy Act
On Thursday last week the Government launched a new website called "Your Freedom" designed to allow the UK people to put forward ideas about which laws and regulations they feel should be removed. Nick Clegg launched the site with a YouTube video inviting everyone to have their say. After a rocky start due to too many hits on the site, things seem to be running smoothly now.
One of the highest voted for ideas posted to the site is to Repeal the Digital Economy Bill which has had (at time of writing) 1418 votes and nearly three hundred comments. >Of course, the Liberal Democrats said they would repeal the Digital Economy Act (DEA) if they made it in to power but this is probably been laid at the wayside under the coalition government. We encourage all our readers to express their view of the ill thought out act that was rushed through the last parliament without time for proper debate; the government is listening!
