>.....
>law-makers should urgently collate,

Yes.

>rationalize,

Yes.

>simplify,

No. The whole point of Duplicate Bridge being
an enjoyable game of skill, compared to the
less enjoyable game Noughts-and-Crosses (1),
is that Duplicate Bridge is a complex game of
imperfect information. Hence the need for the
complex Laws 16 and 40.

>and reorganise

Yes.

>the morass of laws
>.....

No, the Heffalump Trap of the Laws.

(1) In the classic 1983 movie War Games, its
denouement hinges upon an analogy between
the two games of Noughts-and-Crosses and of
Global Thermonuclear War. Joshua describes
the whole point of Global Thermonuclear War:

A strange game.
The only winning move is not to play.

How about a nice game of chess?
