Ancient laws to be repealed

Over 2,300 laws which were enacted in Ireland between the Norman invasion and the Act of Union in 1801 are to be repealed. They include a 12th century law which forbids Jewish people from owning armour, an 11th-century law that provides for Frenchmen to be charged discriminatory taxes and a 14th century one which cracks down on “people associating with the Irish, using their language, or sending children to be nursed among them”.
Britain has been going about the same process just in case someone feels it is within their rights to shoot a Welshman with a crossbow within the city of Chester after sunset.
