• We don’t want no-deal
    Boris Johnson wants to rule out any extensions to a Brexit transition period. He says this is to stop any delays, but really it just makes a no-deal Brexit more likely. Even though he’s just won an election, it doesn’t mean our Prime Minister can put our jobs, our access to medicines and our economy at risk just to score political points. Leave or Remain, none of us voted for a no-deal Brexit that could see our food standards at risk, our NHS struggling with price hikes to vital medicines, and job losses across the country.

  • Make your voice heard - vote for PR
    The UK is sharply divided and people don’t always feel their views are represented by their MP’s. A PR system would end the need for tactical voting and enable people to vote for a candidate who represents their views without fear of their vote being wasted.

  • Clean up our electoral system
    The 2019 general election has seen some truly dodgy behaviour: fake news, misleading leaflets, untruthful ads on social media. And parties have been getting away with it. Why? Because the organisation that oversees elections is just too weak. The Electoral commission is the organisation tasked with this crucial role but its powers are limited and outdated. For instance, its rules are based on how elections were run decades ago, before social media and fake news played such a key role. Our democracy won't work if it's polluted by disinformation. The Electoral Commission needs more power so it can impose bigger fines - and help clean up our democracy

  • Release the Russian report
    A report by MPs which reveals whether or not there has been secret Russian interference in British politics has been delayed for months. No reason for the refusal has been given. Everyone in the country has a right to know if a foreign power has been trying to influence our politics. The British public should be told the truth about whether or not there was interference in our politics. The government should release the report as soon as possible and be honest with the public.

  • Crackdown on dodgy political ads
    This general election has seen untruthful ads or plain lies on social media. At the moment Facebook do not do enough to get rid of ads that spread lies or misinformation. Other social media platforms have already taken action. Twitter recently banned all political ads. The spread of misinformation and lies in our politics could have a serious impact on our democracy. Facebook have the power to change their rules to crack down on the spread of political ads which mislead people. They make a lot of money out of these adverts so they have a duty to do better.

  • Regenerate the Wednesfield Market
    Improving the facilities and dropping the rents would hopefully entice traders back, and stop those we have from leaving. These are the first two things we need in order to save our dying market !!!

  • Introduce 'automatic registration' - so everyone can have their say in elections
    This winter, a predicted 9 million people won’t get to vote in the most important election of a generation - because they’re not registered to vote. That means millions of people – from young people to BME groups and those on low-incomes - won’t get a say in the future of their country, making our democracy more unequal and unfair. Let’s make sure this never happens again by moving towards a system that works for all of us. After this election, we call on all parties to commit to ‘automatic registration’ for all future elections in the UK.

  • Improve the quality of mental health services for young people in the UK
    Mental health services for young people in the UK are doing their best to support what can be a major issue for students, both in formal education and university alike, but many services across the UK simply cannot keep up with this increasing demand. Waiting list lengths for counselling are some of the longest they've ever been and many young people simply cannot get the help they desperately need due to a lack of people able to support them. This combined with soaring number of helpline calls surely suggest that mental health services should be improved right?

  • Stop using Amazon for government websites!
    Our government for years has been telling us that companies "like Amazon" have got away with their tax dodging for too many years. It's laughable then that Amazon is being allowed to provide services to a government department for which they are no doubt being well paid.

  • South Cambridgeshire stands up to hatred in politics
    The Conservative Party’s candidate for South Cambridgeshire, Anthony Browne, is reported to have used racist and offensive language in articles he had written. He wrote that the UK’s immigration policy risked “letting in too many germs” by welcoming people from the “Third World”. What our politicians say matters. When powerful people say hateful things, it can have a real impact, spreading fear and division - and turning people off of politics. The kind of comments made by Anthony Browne have no place in our politics - and we need to prove to him that people in South Cambridgeshire think it’s wrong. Will you sign the petition and demand a proper apology from Anthony Browne? It’s time to stand up against hatred in politics.

  • Demand the BBC leaders debates include an independent fact checker
    After three years of smear, lies, stories and headlines, many of them bordering on libel, a simple apology is not acceptable when you're aiming for the most powerful job in politics. The UK is divided and volatile, this election is a very significant part of our history. The least we can ask for is the facts. Don't let a liar make it to Downing Street. It's time to call them out. Its therefore imperative that a fact checker is allowed to sit with the leaders during the debate.

    Without this information the public are not fully aware of all the issue behind the results of previous elections. Furthermore, since one of the biggest issues of the coming election is Brexit we need to be aware of any meddling in the 2016 referendum. Finally, if there has been interference in previous elections we need to be reassured that it is not a current ongoing situation before casting our votes on December 12th. How can we be confident of fairness and probity in the election process.
