• Monetary System Education
    Money is fundamental to life and public ignorance of the monetary system and the resulting debt levels that cause undue suffering are unacceptable in a modern democracy.

  • Save Knaresborough (and Ripon) Market
    The markets create important revenue for the already struggling town centres. Many people travel specifically to Knaresborough and Ripon to shop at the markets, and whilst they’re there, they also patronise the other local businesses, most of whom will say that Wednesday (Thursday in Ripon) is their busiest day. We are lucky in our towns to have a traditional communities where we can shop for everything such as meat, bread and vegetables locally. This is a rare experience in the modern world, and one to be treasured, especially as it promotes local community and ecological trading.

  • To: Royal Bank of Scotland Stop RBS closing The Inveraray Branch
    RBS has given a stay of execution until December 2018. There are no guarantees they will then keep the branch open - despite businesses, individuals & charities facing a 74 mile round trip to bank if the Inveraray branch and the ATM are closed. The tourist industry is under threat if there is no bank in town and jobs will go. We can't let up the pressure now - keep the signatures rolling in and write to our MP, Brendan O'Hara, to continue his support.

  • Extend Consultation Period for Stretford Masterplan.
    Some of these concerns are (but not limited to) the haste with which the plan has been launched with seemingly little data, plans or research available to residents to substantiate claims of regeneration. Furthermore, there has been information emerging throughout the process that has caused alarm such as the design of the scheme, environmental impact, impact upon current residents and loss of public facilities and access to public space. Whilst we broadly support a vision to regenerate our town centre we cannot support a Masterplan which shows no consideration for incumbent residents and any impacts upon them. With further information it is entirely possible that we would support this plan - however as such information is not forthcoming we ask you to extend consultation and engage with the community meaningfully and openly. For further information - on twitter @m32dogs or M32dogs@hotmail.com or facebook 'Development Opportunity Group for Stretford 'https://www.facebook.com/groups/347186892414426/

  • RBS Branches Closing in Clydesdale, Scottish Borders and Midlothian South
    Not only will this have a devastating impact on the bank workers who are set to lose their jobs, these closures will also have a negative effect on the local communities of Biggar, Carnwath, Douglas, Dunns, Eyemouth, Hawick, Jedburgh, Lesmahagow, Melrose, North Berwick, Penicuik, Selkirk and Strathaven. Those who are older, in poor health, who cannot afford to travel further afield to do their banking, or who run small businesses will be hit hardest by these branch closures.

  • ‏Make Merseyrail Off-Peak annual travel affordable again
    ‏This fare rise unfairly targets people who are least able to afford costly peak-hour fare: the self-employed, people who work non-traditional hours, and those on lower incomes who depend on cheaper off-peak fares to get about. ‏Many workers in our new economy work flexible hours, starting later in the day and working well into the evening. They often stay in town afterwards, spending money in the night-time economy and helping to make Liverpool the vibrant place it is. Cheap off-peak tickets support people who work, shop and socialise in Liverpool city centre. ‏“Many of my colleagues rely on off-peak travel to do their jobs,” says Stuart Harrison, who started the campaign against the unaffordable off-peak rises. “We are not well-paid but we want to work in Liverpool city centre. Now we face forking out a fortune to do so. This news is akin to a pay cut of £837 per year for everyone who previously depended on an off-peak ticket. ‏“Shop assistants, restaurant staff and bar workers all rely on the off-peak ticket too,” adds Stuart. “I see them on the train going home late at night. They are not well-paid but they are the hardworking people who keep Liverpool buzzing. It’s a disgrace that they’ll have to pay a lot more just to get to work.” ‏Affordable fares also hugely important to those with vulnerable family members. “I live and work in Liverpool city centre, but my parents live in Maghull,” says Colin Taylor, based at the Bluecoat. “They both have Alzheimer’s and I visit them around five times a week. Off-peak travel is crucial to me but I just can’t afford the new annual ticket price.” ‏Merseytravel starved the off-peak fare of publicity, then cruelly withdrew it claiming “lack up uptake”. What did they expect would happen? It’s time for them to admit their mistake and reverse this crazy decision. ‏“An extreme rise like this makes a mockery of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’,” says Stuart Harrison. “Off-peak travel might not matter to Merseyrail’s well-paid suits – but their trains will be a lot emptier after 9.30am without this ticket.” ‏And so will the centre of what should be Britain’s most exciting city to live and work.

  • Keep All Northamptonshire Libraries in Public Ownership
    Libraries are often one of the last free to use public hubs in towns and villages where services have already been drastically cut. Reducing Northamptonshire's libraries and potentially leaving only 8 would be devastating for this semi rural county. These important buildings don't just house books they provide modern meeting places for many clubs and groups as well as community events, meeting rooms, internet access and a host of other services. To lose the libraries and with them some children's centres and elderly respite provision would be a real tragedy for our thriving communities leaving us without access to vital services.

  • Stop planned changes to funding for women's refuges
    New government funding plans threaten to dismantle our life-saving national network of refuges and put the lives of women and children trying to escape domestic abuse at risk. A Women’s Aid survey of refuge services showed that the proposed new model of funding could force over half of refuges responding to close or reduce their provision - resulting in 4000 more women and children turned away from the lifesaving services they desperately need. Already there are not enough refuge spaces to meet demand; data from Women’s Aid shows that 60% of total referrals to refuges were declined in 2016/17. When on average two women a week are killed by a partner or ex partner across England and Wales the stakes could not be higher. Under the new plans, rent money which would have in the past gone straight to domestic violence refuges would instead go to local authorities - effectively forcing refuges to compete for funding with other local services. Refuge managers have warned “if the plans get implemented it will be the end of domestic violence refuges." Visit the Women’s Aid website to find out more about this campaign: https://www.womensaid.org.uk/what-we-do/campaigning-and-influencing/campaign-with-us/sos/

  • Change the way women’s refuges are funded
    The changes, giving LA’s the money for refuges, will lead to refuges being closed because local authorities that are already stretched will be unlikely to want to pay for a woman and her children who have come from out of town( for safety reasons). The LA will want to use the money elsewhere, meaning more women will be killed and injured at the hands of abusive partners. It will also lead to more emotional trauma for children living in abusive households
