  • Retain the Royal Bank of Scotland heritage and name
    The brand of Royal Bank whilst tarnished by events is far better known, recognised world-wide by all. The Natwest brand on the contrary has less than 40-50 years history and caused many of the problems which tarnished RBS image. The decision has more to do with corporate lobbying and is not reflective of history, heritage or moving forward with pride and passion. The Royal Bank of Canada has not considered such an audacious step and has not suffered from a similar brand identity issue. There are many past employees and customers who will be appalled by this move and when the Natwest joined the RBS family there was a positive welcome by the teams.

  • Ban gambling advertising on TV
    Gambling is a health hazard it causes misery when it gets out of hand. It wrecks families, destroys futures and can stain your whole life with debt. Advertising influences young people to join in with a click, promises status and quick riches which are not true. The impact on lives is as bad as cigarettes, please ban this unnecessary advertising.

  • International food chains should offer HALAL choice
    The question of CHOICE should be ever-present. The intention is not to stop them selling BACON but to offer HALAL choices for those whose religion forbids them from consuming PORK or PORK-BASED items.

  • Make Sky Put Pressure on BT Openreach
    We all use the internet for Facetime, Skype etc to keep in touch with family & friends, or send videos & photos, play online games with friend etc, but to do this, it is the "uploads" speeds that are vitally important. They will advertise fantastic download speeds, but never address the all important upload speeds Sky is dependent on BT Openreach for their networks, but say that they can't do anything to improve the system. Please ask Sky to put pressure on Openreach to upgrade and provide an infrastructure that is fit for purpose in the digital age.

  • Ban gambling companies from sponsoring football shirts
    If you go to a football match or watch football on TV, there is a high chance you will see a betting company's logo. That’s because the top football clubs in the country have deals with gambling companies, half of premier league teams have betting company logos on their kit. This means millions of fans across the UK and all over the world are being exposed to predatory companies which profit from problem gambling. An estimated 400,000 people in England have a gambling addiction. And it’s ruining lives. The Government and the Football Association should step in and do the right thing: ban any gambling company from sponsoring sponsoring football teams and advertising their brand on football shirts. Italy and Turkey have already banned gambling companies from sponsoring football shirts. Now it’s our turn.

  • British Gas - Reverse the Minimum Top-up Rise
    “I use a pre-pay meter because I can’t afford a direct debit. £5 may not sound a lot, but when you’re scraping together coppers just to make up the money, it can be the difference between a hot meal and going hungry.” – Daniel, British Gas customer* As anti-poverty campaigners and charities have made clear, this decision will mean that many parents and pensioners on low incomes will have to make a choice between food and fuel; it will mean not being able to cook a hot meal, have a bath or turn the heating on. Those who use top-up meters are often in debt and have insecure incomes, and rely on small top-ups to ration their heating to see themselves through to payday. What's more, research shows that those on pre-pay meters pay hundreds of pounds more in tariffs on average than direct debit customers. This decision will disproportionately affect those who are already struggling to get by. To implement it in the middle of winter, and what is the most financially challenging time of the year for many people, is the height of social irresponsibility. A company which last reported profits of £466 million should not be increasing the burden on its most hard-up customers. We ask that British Gas does the responsible thing and reverses this decision. Preet Gill MP has sent the following letter to British Gas bosses calling for this increase to be reversed. A huge petition, joining her call, could convince them to do the right thing: https://files.38degrees.org.uk/items/files/000/002/709/original/PKG_to_British_Gas_15-01-20.pdf *Name changed for anonymity

  • Lidl/Aldi for Stornoway
    Because there is very little choice between Coop and Tesco on an ever expanding Island. With tourism being high in the summer months shopping for locals can be a nightmare another couple of shops would help reduce the chaos.

  • 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
