Firstly, I was referring to the entirety of the SCAD site, not just to
that one article, as was surely clear from the above quoted sentence.
Secondly, what, precisely, is wrong with each country having their own
laws? The enactment of laws is a solemn duty carried out by
parliaments, based upon the wishes of the electorate. It is not the
right of some crowd of has-been politicos sitting in closed session
out of the public gaze.
