The contrast between political ideologies couldn’t be more different – the progressive left think more laws passed in parliament is a measure of “success” when actual success is removing the dead hand of gov’t regulation.

THE Coalition will seek to abolish more than 8000 redundant federal laws with its first "repeal day", scheduled for the final parliamentary sitting week in March as part of its plan to slash red and green tape by $1 billion a year.
Tony Abbott is expected to make a special statement to the House of Representatives on March 19 outlining the government's progress in reducing red and green tape after writing to all cabinet ministers just before Christmas giving them a six-week deadline to submit proposed regulatory reductions for policy approval and drafting.
On the same day, parliament will be presented with the Omnibus Red Tape Repeal Bill and a series of specific bills proposing the repeal of burdensome regulations. Two other bills - the Statute Law Revision Bill and the Amending Acts 1901-1969 Bill - will propose slashing 8000 redundant legislative instruments going back to the turn of the 20th century. The government says the bills, which will be debated the following week, represent the biggest single reduction in federal laws ever put before the commonwealth parliament.
Guaranteed Labor will obfuscate the Gov’t repeal – as the left hate having their progressive legislative statues torn down.
