1. In order to raise tax, or to introduce new tax, legislation is required.
2. So a law to Stop the raising of tax or the introduction of new tax is a law to stop passing a law later on. Why is that needed if you don’t plan to raise tax or introduce new tax? What does it add?
3. What would be the sanction for breaching the law? If parliament passed a law contrary to the earlier law what would happen? Could someone go to court to prevent the application of the new law (raising tax)? given that legislation from Westminster has only been suspended In the context of a breach of EU law (the Factortame case) could the court block the new law? Particularly when there is a general principle of parliamentary sovereignty that allows Parliament to make or unmake any law, and where there is a well established principle of implied repeal where later legislation is inconsistent with earlier legislation.
4. In summary:
this seems to be meaningless bollocks legally.
Well done Dave and Lynton. well done.
