• We do not consent to Smart Water Meters
    Haringey residents have six concerns about the Smart Meter installation programme: 1. Not being consulted prior to installation; 2. Not compulsory (?); 3. Penalise poor people who live in crowded homes; 4. Risk to the health of humans, animals, pollinators, trees and plants; "10. The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) categorised RF EMFs as a Possible CARCINOGEN (Group 2B), the same as lead, DDT, chloroform & methylmercury (31 May 2011)". "11. Dr Andrew Goldsworthy’s research warned that electromagnetically-conditioned water flow could strip lead from pipes (after firstly removing limescale) leading to lead poisoning. (1998, 2007, 2012 and 2016)". 5. Surveillance of water, gas and electric usage; and 6. Security risk through (nuclear) electromagnetic pulse attacks, space weather and hacking (“cybercrime”). Our focus is on Smart Water Meters but not exclusively. Full details about the Stop Smart Meters Haringey campaign can be found on our website below. This petition will be initially delivered to Haringey Council. The target is 2,200+

  • Fracking Referendum
    House prices are already falling behind other areas of the country and the already crumbling roads cant cope with the extra traffic. The environment will be destroyed and the money will not remain in the Fylde and maybe not in the UK. A study shows that the increase in employment is dwarfed by the loss of agriculture jobs not to mention the reduction in the tourism industry.

  • Support Healthy Eating: Two Sides and No Dessert Please
    It is healthier, avoids wasting the desert, and gives people the healthy option some expect with a meal deal, a main and two sides, denied by the current system, which gives you an incompete main course and a desert you don't want/ shouldn't eat instead. Another of our 5 a day, less waste, healthier customers, better value at no cost except reprogramming a computer (sides are already labelled). So a better offer all round. Why wouldn't you? Cheap does not have to be unhealthy by design, there is a better alternative.

  • PIP Justice for Mental Health Sufferers
    People changing from DLA to PIP are being robbed of their entitlement because they do not have a " cognitive impairment" or " physical" reason why they cannot understand what people say to them, or can't cook a meal , or can't walk 200 yards, or can't plan and execute a journey by themselves.

  • STOP ADDED WATER TO FOOD PRODUCTS.
    I get really annoyed with industries that add water to food. It seems to me it is only beneficial to the manufacturer in that weight adds to the price of food, also water does not add to the flavour of food either, it detracts what we taste from it. ie bacon and chicken have less flavour, horrible white bits float around when cooking bacon, etc. Why should I have to pay more money for meat without water, when water I feel should not be added in the first place. It makes no sense, and is of no benefit to the consumer.

    Whilst it’s great to live in such a beautiful part of the region, rural areas get a rough deal when it comes to services. I want to see the Doctors Surgery in Luddenden maintained to ensure those who depend on these services can continue to live in our area.

  • Funding for new & safe medication for treatment of schizophrenia & bipolar illness.
    All current medication for these illnesses are very dangerous, often causing 30k of weight gain. Diabetes, abnormal muscle movements, seizures, hepatitis, disturbance in speech & language. Damage to liver & pancreas, loss of memory.The list is long. Current medication is no more than a tranquilliser or "knock on the head" rendering the sick subdued and helpless. Unable to take part in an active social life or go to work. My daughter was at university when she became ill. She weighed 9 stone or 58k, her life was just beginning. She now takes the only type of medication that is available. She now has no confidence, as not only has she, " lost her mind" she has, "lost her body" too as she now weighs 15 stone or 95k. She has no friends, no social life or a job. The medication she must take is not working, because she has not recovered. This is why it is so important to save young lives by developing new and safe medication for these serious illnesses. Many people with schizophrenia end up in prison, costing the government & tax payers, when they should be taking new, safe, medication & living normal lives. This is a global illness.

  • No VAT on UK Air Ambulance Fuel
    In a life threatening emergency the Air Ambulance Service is your lifeline no matter where you live in the UK. If you live in a rural area it is often your ONLY lifeline because it is too far by road for you to be treated within the golden hour.

  • Stop Stealth Sugar
    There's an obesity crisis. Despite the premature deaths of millions in the UK from obesity-related illnesses, shoppers still can't make healthy choices - because foods are full of stealth sugars, which don't appear clearly on the labels.

  • VICKIES WISH
    www.youtube.com/embed/_XLqbFE3Ino Our daughter Vickie (23 yrs) was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in September 2012, Whilst undergoing treatment she had to sign a waiver for all treatment/medicines she received. She had a Stem Cell Transplant on Christmas day 2012 and by April 4th was told she was in remission, For the next 3 months we had our old Vickie back, she was very busy helping her sisters and myself organise our 40th wedding anniversary,we were going to renew our vows. I had booked the church, bought the dress and got the reception.The only problem was that I hadn't told my wife as it was to be a surprise, I told her 3 days before the ceremony which was also her birthday. She was a little shocked but also over the moon. We all had a fantastic day and we just thought that life was great. Then in September 2013 almost a year to the day, the consultant at the Queen Elizabeth, Birmingham, called us in and told us that the disease had returned, needless to say, we were all devastated. After a few weeks in the YPU at Birmingham Vickie decided she wanted to be nearer home at Worcester hospital where she was first diagnosed, the doctors at the QE had already told us that there wasn't much hope of Vickie's survival. Vickie didn't know this, as she wouldn't attend any negative meetings, she always insisted that she didn't want to know anything bad. Unfortunately, the consultant at Worcester didn't have the same views, she was of the opinion that Vickie should be told everything so she could prepare herself, I argued that if Vickie was told the truth she wouldn't survive 2 more weeks and fortunately but begrudgingly the consultant agreed not to say anything, although I always knew that she would find a way of telling her even though Vickie had told her to her face that she didn't want to know anything bad. My worst fears came true at the end of November when the consultant found an excuse to tell Vickie every detail of what was going to happen to her while she was seeing her on her own! We entered the office and Vickie was sobbing uncontrollably. We took her home and she went to bed, she just gave up on life! she passed away less than two weeks later on December 10th, her Mum and myself were holding her hand when she died. My argument is, (and I have spoken to Doctors who agree) that if Vickie had been given the choice a year before, she would have signed a waiver stating that she didn't want to be told any bad news, this would have taken the pressure off the consultant, the Doctors and the nursing staff, on this waiver there should also be an option to tell parents everything and keep them in the picture, or in the case of the elderly there should be an option to tell the next of kin. There should also be an option for the patient to be told everything. We are saying that it was Vickie's wish not to be told, but she was denied that right, this needs to be put right, for everyone involved! A simple tick and signature on a well worded document would save a lot of families and NHS staff a lot of stress, so I am begging you to please sign this petition in Vickie's memory, and please remember it can happen to anyone at anytime. Thank you in anticipation. xxx Please send this to all your friends!!!!
