A reason to be grateful for our British heritage in this quote of the week from Tim Worstall:
. . . this is a very basic point about the freedoms and liberties of the English. We do not need to ask politicians for permission to do what we desire to do. We only have to be careful not to do what our elected representatives have decided we should not do.
Since most of our law is based on British law, we too are at liberty do what we will without seeking permission from our law makers.
Providing there isn’t a law saying we can’t, we can.
