The Original Freedom Bill By The Liberal Democrats
By Dark Politricks
This is the original "Freedom Bill" that the Lib Dems promised to pass if they were elected to Government in the 2010 election that saw them share power with the Tories much to the disgust of us those on the left or who were old school Liberals who wanted liberty and freedom. They that knew bills like this one would be removed ASAP or at least watered down.
The original bill has been taken down from all Lib Dem websites, even the online archive.org doesn't seem to have a copy. If it does I cannot find it. It's almost as if they scrubbed it off the web once they realised their original bill below would not get passed and would be watered down due to Tory establishment pressure.
The Original Freedom Bill
