• Stop Viagogo taking over Stubhub
    Stubhub is currently Viagogo’s only competitor in the UK for ticket reselling. If Viagogo takes over Stubhub, Viagogo will have no competition when it comes to reselling tickets online. That means fans will only have one place to shop if they miss out on a sold out event. This should be stopped. Viagogo makes huge profits by capitalising on high demand on sold out events, and was recently investigated by the CMA for misleading customers. If they’re the only company in the UK reselling tickets, more and more fans will have no choice but use Viagogo. The Competition Markets Authority can stop this takeover happening. If they intervene in this deal, it could mean that fans have a customers and fans have better choice when trying to get tickets to their favourite concerts and events.

  • Hotels in the UK: Comply with the Modern Slavery Act
    Slavery did not end with abolition in the 19th century. Instead, it changed its forms and continues to harm people in every country in the world. Including here in the UK. Currently, the UK Modern Slavery Act requires companies with a turnover of £36 million to release annual statements of their anti-slavery efforts. And hotels and the hospitality industry often don't do enough to stop the exploitation of workers, and in the worst cases, modern slavery. But some of these hotel companies are not producing these statements - even though they have to by law. This means that right now we don't know if they are failing to address the specific risks of modern slavery in their direct operations and supply chains, because they are not releasing an annual report. These hotel chains must reflect on the specific risks facing the sector: they must do the bare minimum and take slavery seriously. *These groups have not complied as of 22 November 2019

  • Making Wordpress and Social Media Accountable to UK Parliament
    This petition is very important for the Internet age because these Firms engage in a dictatorial fashion to deny their users the opportunity to voice their legitimate concerns to the United Kingdom authorities for legal redress to be implemented in terms of compensation and damages awarded to the users when they suffer at the hands of these companies through the process of interacting with the particular Social Media concerned.

  • Petition to Protect Blog Owners from Negative SEO Attacks
    The Problem: Negative SEO is the practice of using Google’s penalty system to attack your search competitors. It’s an unethical practice that’s against Google’s webmaster guidelines, but thousands of attacks take place every day, putting the search rankings of innocent bloggers at risk. Negative SEO is only possible thanks to Google’s penalty system. Competitors can use the penalties to ‘attack’ their opposition by manipulating the backlinks going to their opposition’s domain in order to land them a penalty. This is a terrible practice that needs to stop, and the responsibility falls onto Google to stop it. The Solution: Google needs to better protect ethical website owners and bloggers from negative SEO by changing their algorithm. Web owners shouldn’t be penalized for black hat SEO carried out by their competitors. If Google can’t sufficiently distinguish intentional black hat link building from fake negative SEO attacks, they should cease handing out SEO penalties for them immediately. Website owners will then be able to rest easy knowing that their ranking potential on the SERPs can’t be sabotaged by their competitors. Website owners can find out more about how to better rank for their target keywords on https://smashdigital.com/onpage.

    The new BBC Sounds app is appalling: clunky, badly designed, poorly laid out and missing several important features that made iPlayer a pleasure to use. We didn’t ask for it and we don’t want it! Reinstate BBC iPlayer for radio now!

  • Thomas Cook
    I was employed with Thomas Cook and in a blink of an eye it was gone. We had no warning about what was about to happen. We have been treated appallingly. Whole families have lost their household income in one day we deserve answers. We have given our best to our employers don’t we deserve the best in return.

  • Thomas Cook’s bosses should pay back their bonuses
    When travel company Thomas Cook collapsed, thousands of jobs were lost and families were stranded on holiday, desperate to get home. Our taxes ended up paying for the clean-up. But the bosses in charge at Thomas Cook walked away with millions of pounds in bonuses. It’s not right. Now the government is considering making them return the money, and stripping them of the right to run companies again. It would be a huge step forward in holding big business to account. Forcing Thomas Cook’s bosses to pay back their money won’t bring our jobs or holidays back. But it could send a message - you can’t walk away while the public clears up your mess. It could make other bosses think twice before taking risks with our jobs and savings. By signing the petition, together we can create a wave of public outrage - it could tip the government into cracking down properly on businesses who cause a mess and walk away.
