  • Public appology needed by Penelope Leach for views against fathers.
    I've been in the unfortunate position of being a weekend Dad for a long time, and have felt nothing but discrimination as a result. Having recently tried and passionately fight for custody of my children through the farcical family courts, I cannot begin to imagine what must be going through my children’s minds as to why Dad is no longer available to them every day. As the primary carer due to being self-employed and at home; all the routines, bedtime stories, school runs, meals etc. that were in place prior to being made homeless by my wife a few years ago, were suddenly non-existent, and a family unit destroyed by the mother, yet people like Penelope Leach clearly feel mothers are perfect and that fathers cannot provide the same level of care, compassion, love, discipline. Having read her views I'm absolutely livid. A couple of months ago just prior to Mother’s Day I sat with my two boys (5 & 6) and they painted up two empty wooden jewellery boxes and decorated them with various craft bits and pieces. They then each made a homemade Mother’s Day card. They were both very proud, as was I of what they had done, and only too eager to give these to their mother. Yesterday was Father’s Day, and I received only a wonderful card made by one son at School. My oldest commented that he was hadn't been able to make one. While I don't expect any gifts, the fact that each year, on birthdays, father’s day etc., my children’s mother cannot be bothered to ensure that my children at least give me a card it shows how poor this particular mother is in thinking about the best interest of her children. There are some fantastic fathers out there and some extremely poor mothers and Penelope Leach does not recognise this.

  • commemorate the death of jean charles de menezes (22nd of july 2015)
    Jean Charles de Menezes (pronounced [ʒeˈɐ̃ ˈʃahlis dʒi meˈnezis] in Brazilian Portuguese) 7 January 1978 – 22 July 2005) was a Brazilian man shot dead by the London Metropolitan police at Stockwell tube station on the London Underground after he was misidentified as one of the fugitives involved in the previous day's failed bombing attempts. These events took place two weeks after the London bombings of 7 July 2005, in which 52 people were killed. Contemporaneous and later police and media accounts contradicted each other, specifically regarding Menezes's manner and clothing as he entered the station, and whether there had been any police warnings before they fired. The death sparked an intense public debate over a shoot-to-kill practice known as Operation Kratos. The codename was dropped in 2007, but the policy continues. Police put under surveillance the communal entrance to a block of flats in Tulse Hill, south London, in which Menezes was living, and saw Menezes leave the building. Plain clothes officers, armed with pistols, followed him as he took a bus to Brixton tube station, before boarding another to Stockwell because the tube station at Brixton was closed. Specialist firearms officers were called to Stockwell. Just after Menezes entered a train, several officers wrestled him to the ground and fired seven bullets into his head at point blank range. The train was still at the platform with its doors open, having just been evacuated by officers. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) launched two investigations. Stockwell 1, the findings of which were initially kept secret, concluded that none of the officers would face disciplinary charges. Stockwell 2 strongly criticised the police command structure and communications to the public, bringing pressure on the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair to resign. In July 2006, the Crown Prosecution Service said there was insufficient evidence to prosecute any of the officers, although a corporate criminal prosecution of the Metropolitan Police was brought under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. This alleged that the police service had failed in its duty of care to Menezes. The service was found guilty and fined. On 12 December 2008 an inquest returned an open verdict.[1]I feel that because of the way he was taken from life that it is the least that can be done. I pass the memorial at stockwell and look it to his young eyes and it makes me upset that he was killed so brutally .

  • Friends of Great Court Farm
    This would mean an end to dairy farming in the rural town of Totnes, Devon. Totnes is a strongly rural community with a well established farming heritage and maintaining such an important aspect of life in Totnes is crucial to retaining its identity. As a result of the development, there would be an enormous impact on the local traffic in an area already considered hazardous with recent fatalities. We believe an increased demand on public local infrastructure, with regards to the provision of health and education services will not be adequately catered for. We are NOT averse to the building of affordable homes for people wanting to live in the town. Planning is currently council approved for the building of approximately 400 other homes in Totnes on other housing developments. The impact of additional homes on Great Court Farm cannot be properly assessed without considering this additional housing and its associated strain on the local infrastructure. Not only will this development create unemployment in the farming community, it is also unclear whether we have the local provision to ensure safe and fair access to health and education. In January South Hams District Council approved planning permission on Great Court Farm but we are fighting to ensure this does not happen.

  • Release deleted scene's of Rik Mayall from Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone
    Rik Mayall was such an iconic man, and comedy has a lot to thank because of him! I hope we get to see this as he would have wanted us to smiling and definitely laughing at maybe some of his greatest work! He played Peeve's in the first Harry Potter movie and below is what his opinion was on the movie and his scene.... “I tell you, the best f**king film I’ve ever been in, not for the film, because the film, with respect… no with no respect at all… the film was s**t, I’ll tell you why. “A long while ago, all the kids at my kids’ school were saying “Hello Rik, have you read Harry Potter? It’s fantastic.” I’d go “what?” “My agent said, “Hey Rik, you want to be in Harry Potter?” “I said, “What, is it a book?” “He said, “It’s a film.” “I said, “Ah, it’s my favourite book, course I want to be in it.” “I’d never read a word. He said: “Alright, you’re in it.” “I thought, “f**king cool. What’s the money?” “So I did it, I went and I f**king did it. I played the part of Peeves in ‘Harry Potter’. I got sent off the set because every time I tried to do a bit of acting, all the lads who were playing the school kids kept getting the giggles, they kept corpsing, so they threw me off. “Well, they asked me to do it with my back to them and they still laughed. So they asked me to do it around the other side of the cathedral and shout my lines, but they still laughed so they said they’d do my lines with someone else. “So then I did a little bit of filming, then I went home and I got the money. That’s significant. “Then a month later, they said: “Er, Rik, we’re sorry about this, but you’re not in the film. We’ve cut you out of the film.” “It was three weeks later, so I was in the film for around three weeks and then they cut me out. “But I still got the money. So that is the most exciting film I’ve ever been in, because I got the oodle and I wasn’t in it. Fantastic. “I hadn’t told my kids I wasn’t in it yet, and they came back and they said: “Bloody good make up. You didn’t look like yourself at all dad.” “They thought I was playing Hagrid, Robbie Coltrane’s part.” You will be well missed and one of my heroes! You never failed to make me laugh! You are an inspiration and I hope you can still make generations laugh for years to come!

  • National 'Flash' Holiday in Memory of Rik Mayall
    To create a lasting memorial in the British collective memory to the genius of Rik Mayall, and recognise that he, and his characters, particularly Lord Flashheart, have become lodged in the national subconscious, but have also consciously shaped a generation. In return for the day off, the public will be expected to behave in an extremely silly way, with as many references to Lord Flash during the day as possible, Including repeated Woofs.

  • No Homeless Spikes
    There has been a 37% rise in the amount of people sleeping rough since your government took power; 50000 families were accepted as homeless by their local authority in 2012/13 and the average life expectancy of a homeless person is 47. These statistics sicken us. Show us you feel the same by outlawing these new deterrents to homeless people finding somewhere to sleep when they have nowhere else to go. We do not believe the removal of these spikes will stop homelessness, anymore than their installation will stop homelessness, but it may convince us that you and your government are not anti-homeless people.

  • In Support of Metallica at the Glastonbury Festival
    It is important because some are calling for the group not to perform simply because of a picture of James Hetfield hunting, conveniently omitting all the good James Hetfield and Metallica do for the community. Metallica has donated nearly $30,000 from proceeds to food banks in Canada, raised $33,000 for the Morgan Harrington Scholarship Fund, and donated funds to help a fan's garden design for a prestigious horticultural competition due to fan's lack of funding. James Hetfield has also donated over 700 acres of land for conservation efforts. In addition to all of this, Metallica is a supporter of: Sierra Club, Rainforest Action Network, Stomp Out Bullying, WWF, Live Earth, MusiCares, Youth Music, Love Our Children USA plus the Apollo Alliance. James Hetfield and Metallica do plenty of good for the community by donating their time and money to those around the world and do not deserve to be removed from the line up at the Glastonbury Festival.
