AN INSIDERS LOOK AT HOW LEGISLATION COMES INTO BEING THAT DEMOLISHES DEMOCRATIC MYTHS.
Daniel Steenberg is a lifelong Parliamentary Counsel who shows us how the Statute Law comes into being..
In it he demolishes myths about legally literate MP’s spouting off about this wonderful bit of legislation they have to fight for,instead exposing how they have Briefing Papers with very little say in how its created.
In fact the real work is behind the scenes with the Legislation drafting office and interested bodies.MP’s, are the workhorses for the current Administration pushing through law which contrary to popular thinking DOES NOT get the intricate meticulous attention to detail that the Bill deserves in its deceptive Committee Stages.
There is more!
Here we have Politicians who are too busy to vet.
Legally illiterate Politicians who need to heed apparently powerful Counsel.
And Legally illiterate Governments forcing thru bad legislation which Parliamentary Counsel wishes was better.
A book to induce Reformist thinking.
Go buy people’s!
