Organ law too big a decision

THE Assembly will soon be putting its idea of presumed consent for organ transplants into law without asking anybody but each other. If this was being considered by the House of Commons it would go before the House of Lords. This is too big a decision, it should be left to Westminster.

Whittington Street, Tonna

    I'm extremely worried by the attitude of Neathboy CLM who seems to think that laws are holy writ and have to be slavishly obeyed at all times. This means of course that he is a supporter of slavery, burning so called witches, denying women the vote and of course making homosexuality a criminal offence. All these things were legal at one time or the other and since he always supports all laws he would have supported these. Intelligent people of course accept that laws are made by human beings, that most fallible of creatures, and some laws need to be struck down not obeyed like some mindless dalek. Less intelligent people – those who cannot think for themselves rush to be the first in line to go goose stepping down the road shouting their Heils and 'All laws must be obeyed without question'. Half a century ago these wore a crooked cross on their arm, today they strap bombs to themselves and murder innocent people because someone told them it was the law to do so. Thankfully most of these ignorant people end up facing war crimes whilst parroting ' I was only obeying orders'. A very clever man once said 'Laws are for the guidance of wise men and the strict adherence of fools'. I leave the reader to decide which description best fits Neathboy CLM.

    ButzChoquin clearly you do not understand the law either lol. It's all about democracy, the WG make a law and we have to obey it. Maxmin asked "Why should people have to take action to retain that which is theirs?. To put it into context it's similar to the yobs we have protesting in NI each night over the fact that the union flag isn't being flown all the time. These yobs do no respect the democratic decision that was taken by elected councilors. I myself do not like many things that are done by our MP's and AM's, but i always obey them because that's the way democracy works

    maxmin i was going to say you could contact your local AM Keith Davies to talk about you opposition to this law, but sadly looking at his website i see he is in favor. Keith Davies Welcomes Welsh Labour's List of Laws.... Making local authorities to further collaborate when delivering services. • A new Food Hygiene Rating Scheme to help improve food safety and provide consumers with easily understandable information. • Organ Donation Bill to create an opt-out system of organ donation. • The Schools and Standards Bill to tackle under performing schools. • Reforming social services to provide for the first time a coherent Welsh legal framework to meet changing social expectations and demography. • Action to address homelessness and empty dwellings, as well as improving standards and tenants' rights in the private rented sector. • Introducing a duty on Local Authorities to provide and maintain cycle paths in key areas. • Consolidating existing legislation to make the planning system more transparent and accessible. Keith Davies added, "That is a long and comprehensive list but, by working together, it is a list of what we can achieve for the good of Wales and of the Welsh people."

    maxmin you started your court action against the WG, or are u just full of hot air like all the other right wingers. BTW i know you don't like obeying laws, but unless you get your opt out when this law comes in they are going to start slicing u up like a birthday cake when your dead lol.

    maxmin you seem to be repeating yourself. Do you know if it wasn't for the fact that you were foolish enough to tell me where you live and all about yourself, i would think that your actually Mr Levell. BTW maxmin do you think it's too big a law for the WG, does it upset you as well that the WG was given law making powers by the Welsh people

    You will answer the questions!!!!!, you sound a little bit like the gestapo lol. BTW i've told you before don't bother asking me any questions. I only half read what you post anyway, i get bored half way through and stop. I only seen the bit about Operation Fortitude when you mentioned it the second time, to be honest i find your posts very child like and of little interest.
