• St Mirren Football Club: Ditch single use plastic
    By the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our seas yet the football clubs in the Scottish Premiership are still giving out thousands of single use plastic items every single match day. Including plastic cups, straws, stirrers and bags, which all end up clogging up our oceans and filling landfills. Football supporters shouldn't be forced to contribute to plastic pollution just because they want to have a drink or some food at a match.

  • Petition for The Bank of England to have both a female and male on the new £50 note
    This will conform to the "Equality Act of 2010" and be DEMOCRATIC - both requirements of our underwritten constitutions by INSTITUTIONS. To achieve this, I suggest using the consultation on the website set up by The Bank of England for the general public to put forward a personage they would like to have on the new note, who has served the nation by their 'SCIENTIFIC ENDEAVOURS AND RESULTS AND WHO ARE DECEASED'. From this survey, take the top 4/5 females and top 4/5 males and then on the basis of these 2 lists have a nationwide 38 Degrees petition to decide the final two (one from each list). This incorporates both The Equality Act of 2010 and is democratic. This would be a model for all new notes in the future and bring all notes inline with The Equality Act of 2010.

  • Edinburgh Council, impose a £3 per night tourist tax to fund social services and street maintenance.
    Edinburgh Council plans to stop funding many vital social services - this doesn’t need to happen. For too long, Edinburgh citizens have been paying to clean up after tourists in the city centre while non-central areas of the city are neglected. The only people who benefit from the tourist trade are business owners - the rest of us pay for it. A modest tourist tax could keep vital social services running.

  • Arsenal: Ditch single use plastic
    By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our seas. But Premier League football clubs still give out hundreds of thousands of single use plastic items every single matchday. Plastic cups, straws, stirrers, bags, they all end up clogging up our oceans and filling landfills. Having been a long time supporter of Arsenal, I have been to many matches and been left horrified at the amount of single use plastic given out on match days. From hot drinks served in single use cups, to copious amounts of beer being served in plastic pint glasses, there's plastic stirrers, plastic water bottles and even plastic beer bottles! The average attendance at Arsenal matches last season was 57,000 people - this means there's an absolutely eye watering amount of single use plastic being used at every game. Arsenal say they have put in measures to be a more environmental organisation, including separating plastic bottles and cups from waste on match days and passing them on to their cleaning contractor to be recycled. They claim to divert 10 tonnes of plastic and cardboard per month from landfill - but this is not enough. Its fine to state that Arsenal recycle, but we need to see hard evidence of this plastic waste being recycled by their cleaning contractor. Otherwise this is all merely lip service. More than this, however, we want to see Arsenal move away from single use plastic entirely. The UK does not have the infrastructure to recycle the amount of plastic waste that we produce every year, this means that most of it is shipped abroad - and there is growing evidence that this plastic ends up in landfill in countries such as Turkey and Bangladesh, instead of being recycled. Arsenal have a huge responsibility to ditch single use plastic - a starting point could be a reusable cup scheme as seen at many UK festivals, paper straws instead of plastic ones, and biodegradable coffee cups. The technology exists to move away from single use plastic - it's time Arsenal took the lead and showed other Premier League clubs the way forward.
