Libertarianism thrives.

This last week has been a great week for libertarianism with the announcement by Teresa May that the government will change the way a stop and search power, Section 44, Terrorism Act 2000 is used. This follows complaints that the Police are using the power arbitrarily and without justification. The second piece of good news was the announcement by the Justice Minister Lord McNally that he will publish a wide ranging consultation document on libel law and defamation. Both announcements are a step in the right direction after 13 years of an illiberal Labour government who unjustifiably curtailed our civil liberties.
