Repeal the Act of Settlement (1701)
The Act of Settlement is a major piece of anti-catholic legislation. In 21st Century a country like ours should not enshrine religious discrimination in law. I appreciate the difficulties that are involved in repealing this law but it is a major insult to loyal British people who are also Catholic.
The repeal of this law would finally show that our country is serious in having a genuinely equal society. There is no room for religious discrimination in law in this country and it is shameful that anti-catholic legislation is still acceptable in the UK.
