Re: Petition the government to "Change import duty rules to encourage British manufacturing"

<t>We also tend to leave bad laws/acts in place, long after it was relevant (I would say trade legislation should have a shelf life but that would probably cause trouble as well).

Hitler may of had some sound economic ideas but he was basically a c***.
