• Network Rail to give a basic education and understanding of dangers of the Railway
    I think this is of vital importance because children from primary school right through to secondary school need a basic understanding and education of the dangers of a railway line after the death of the poor boy who sadly died on the railway line at Bedford Road Bootle Liverpool. This will give our children the understanding that they need to know that Merseyside and further afield operates on a third rail system which has 750v DC running through the line if you come in contact with this it will kill you instantly.

  • Keep Newtown High Streets OPEN
    Newtown town centre does not need to be jeopardised by replacing what is already available - Newtown needs regeneration as per the requirements of the proposed Welsh Government TRI (Targeted Regeneration Investment) programme i.e. complimentary to existing environments and financial sustainability. Otherwise, Newtown residents may be paying for this venue for the duration of a 99 year lease – a terrible legacy for future generations.

  • Save the Hev's Happy Hounds PlayPark
    The PlayPark provides an invaluable resource to local dog walkers, dog trainers and dog owners. It enables dogs who are otherwise not allowed off lead for various reasons to run free in a safe and secure environment. We know that our users often visit other local businesses too.

  • Clamp down on racism in football
    As last night's Bulgaria vs England football match showed, racism in the sport is still rife in Europe. People were captured on TV making monkey chants and Nazi salutes towards black players. The racist abuse was so bad that the game had to be stopped twice in the opening 40 minutes. The current Uefa penalties are completely unacceptable and do not deter racists. Issuing financial fines, anti racism posters and partly closing stadiums simply does not work. It's time Uefa got tough.

  • End sanctioned benefit poverty
    People can lose their homes, children, their basic need for food and water, their dignity, sanity, and the will to even live. People who have experienced sanctioned benefits are stripped of any income and any supporting housing payments leaving the person destitute and possibly homeless, all before any investigative outcome is made and before any guilty or innocent verdict. People have a basic right to food and water , human beings should not be forced to live in destitution due to an "investigation", its penalisising ,its degenerating and its damn right unethical

  • Mandatory BSL teaching in schools
    This is not only important but in keeping with The BSL Act (2015) which in my eyes has not managed to make any real impact on the exclusion of D/deaf children in particular or to keep them in mainstream schools. The removal of children from the mainstream classroom for 1-1 teaching defeats the purpose of the child remaining in mainstream education. Mandatory teaching of BSL for all children in Scotland will allow everyone to have a basic knowledge and the ability to communicate efficiently with any D/deaf children removing stigma while allowing for full inclusion. The presence of a persons skilled in BSL in the school would also allow for mainstream learning to take place and the lessons to be interpreted by that individual or by the teacher him/herself. Unfortunately in Scotland, BSL is such a hard subject to study- there is one university course but entry without any BSL knowledge would be very hard and to learn BSL anywhere else you need to fund it yourself and it is not cheap. I was lucky enough to learn a very basic amount of BSL in primary school due to a Deaf Student in my class. This stayed with me and after 5 years of ‘vocational’ night school which I had to pay for I have a degree in BSL and work in the colleges interpreting lessons and work for D/deaf students. This method of study is not even available at all in the west of Scotland just now and limited elsewhere as there is no providers left, mostly all going bust due to lack of students being able to afford the courses and the lack of funding from the government. If we can give our kids a basic knowledge in primary school and the choice to learn the first few professional levels in high school we set them up for life and if they chose so, a career in BSL. Surely this is as much appropriate as french or German. We are setting ourselves up for a crisis in 5/10 years when we have no interpreters due to no ability to train. Please support me in my fight for inclusion.

  • Change Chichester District Council Meeting Times
    All Chichester District Council meetings are held during the day making it impossible for working people or people with day time commitments to attend Council Meetings. 95% of the District and Borough Councils in England and Wales hold evening or late afternoon meetings. Chichester District Council is one of only a very few of over 200 second tier councils to hold all meetings during the day. Day time meetings make it very hard for working District Councillors to attend Council meetings to fulfil the roles for which their communities duly elected them. This also affects Parish Councillors and residents who work and need to attend meetings at Chichester District Council.

  • Call In decision to give Kingston's Right to Buy receipts to GLA
    Kingston desperately needs more council housing for the thousands of people on the waiting list and the Council could combine the RTB receipts with other funds it has available to build between 30-77 council rent properties this year and even more in 2020/21 and 2021/22. If it gives this money to the GLA, it will only receive it back as a grant with conditions that force it to build London Affordable Rent properties, which are unaffordable to many of the most in need on the housing waiting list. See here for more details and a paper petition if you can help by collecting written signatures and scanning and e-mailing it back to us: https://dchkingston.wordpress.com/why-is-rbk-giving-our-money-to-the-gla/

  • Ban UK arms sales to Turkey
    Turkey's military action will disrupt the fragile stability of the region, harming and displacing thousands of civilians and paving the way for Isis to reestablish itself in the region. The EU states that military action is resulting in more civilians suffering and further displacement and severely hindering access to humanitarian assistance. A number of major European powers have unilaterally pledged to halt arms sales to Mr Erdogan’s government, including Germany, France and Finland. But the UK, one of the world’s largest arms exporters, is absent from the list. Dominic Raab, the UK’s foreign secretary, was absent from Monday's meeting (EU foreign affairs council meeting in Luxemburg 7.10.19). The Financial Times reports "the UK has licensed £1.1bn worth of arms to Turkey since Mr Erdogan became president five years ago, according to the Campaign Against the Arms Trade. These include £206m of licences for aircraft, helicopters and drones, £84m on armoured vehicles and tanks, and £82m on grenades bombs, missiles and countermeasures."

  • Oliver Letwin, please support a People's Vote
    We appreciate the cross-party work that you have done in order to avoid the UK leaving the EU without a deal. We agree that such an outcome would: • be very bad for the people of West Dorset • lead to further division in our country • weaken our economy • cause a damaging reduction in environmental standards • undermine the protections for workers’ rights • increase the difficulty in recruiting essential health and care workers, and • be damaging for the farming community We are also concerned at the lack of care for the importance of maintaining the Good Friday Agreement. Leaving the EU without a deal was not on offer during the 2016 Referendum campaign. We believe that the essential healing process for our divided nation can only begin once people are given a chance to vote on the reality of leaving the EU, now that so much more is known. Note: Please only sign this petition if you live in Sir Oliver Letwin's West Dorset parliamentary constituency. Check here https://www.mysociety.org/wehelpyou/who-is-your-mp/ if you're not sure who your MP is.
