Your country, Your rules

Simple question really, If you ruled this country what would you do, anything is allowed literally anything.

I think the question is far from simple and I don't have an answer. Well, at least not a serious one.

UK, it appears you already can make up your own laws.

As a start, a referendum on Euros staying in tne UK, maximum sentences for crimes rather than minimum, reintroduction of the Death Penalty

  Kevscar1 08:46 06 Jul 2009

sorry got that wrong minimum sentences for crimes rather than maximum.

I'd abide by the constitutional conventions.

The ruler has very little to do do with running the country, simply giving Royal Assent to acts passed by parliament.

Without wishing to restart a very old & tired debate - take a look at Texas, they execute lots of people and violent crime hasn't stopped.

A court system based on revenge rather than punishment doesn't put an end to crime...

Where are these Euros, presumably in bank vaults?

"Without wishing to restart a very old & tired debate" and then you do!!!

I don't want to, but people keep bringing it up, and someone has to stand against the Daily Mail on this topic...
