• Gavin Williamson's knighthood should be stripped if any inquiries find against him.
    Anyone who believes (or at least hopes) that our elected representatives adhere to a high standard of conduct cannot condone Williamson's alleged appalling behaviour.

  • Make being a Member of Parliament a full time job
    Being an MP is a full time job. It is not something that should be done with half measures. Right now during a cost of living crisis and government unrest, it is of extreme importance that all MPs serve their constituencies the best they can. Taking on second jobs or going on holidays outside of parliamentary recess can simply not be better for the good of constituents and the UK as a whole. When someone decides to become a teacher, they do so knowing it means they will be limited on when they can go on holiday. If you choose to run for Parliament it should be with the same understanding.

  • He's no celebrity - stop Matt Hancock appearing on I'm a Celebrity
    Matt Hancock isn’t a ‘celebrity’, he’s the health secretary who oversaw the UK having one of the highest death tolls in the world from Covid-19 whilst breaking his own lockdown rules. The fact that he is trying to cash in on his terrible legacy, rather than showing some humility or seeking to reflect on the appalling consequences of his time in Government says it all about the sort of his person he is. Families were ripped apart by Matt Hancock’s actions, and turning on the TV to see him being paraded around as a joke is sickening. If he had any respect for families who lost loved ones to Covid-19, he would be sharing his private emails with the Covid Inquiry, not eating bugs on TV. Then again, perhaps if those emails came to light no TV station would touch him with a barge pole. ITV should do the decent thing and remove him from the programme.Over 200,000 people lost their lives to Covid-19 across the UK. Matt Hancock was at the very centre of decisions such as locking down late, allowing large scale sporting events to go ahead as the virus ran rampant and failed to get our healthcare workers the PPE they needed. On top of that he was fired after breaking the rules he helped set. His profiteering and shameless search for publicity in the run up to his book launch is another insult to already grieving families.

  • Sign the petition: Sack Suella Braverman from her position as Home Secretary
    Suella Braverman used inflammatory language about Refugees - comparing their arrival in the UK to an "invasion". Her words came just days after a migrant centre in Kent was attacked. These kind of dangerous words stoke hatred and even her own party's MPs have condemned her for them. This comes less than two weeks after, Suella Braverman was forced to resign as Home Secretary after admitting she broke ministerial code and sent confidential documents outside the government from her private email. Five days later new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak reappointed her in the exact same post! In her role as Home Secretary she will have access to sensitive information around matters of national security. Rishi Sunak is playing games to appease different parts of the Conservative Party while putting our national security in the hands of someone who has proven they can't be trusted to handle confidential and sensitive information securely. The Prime Minister must rethink his decision to reappoint Suella Braverman and put our country before his party.

  • Liz Truss should go without an honours list or any other perks!
    Liz didn't even last 3 months, there is no other occupation that would grant you anything for that, no honest one anyway. Instead she fell at the first hurdle, making huge and avoidable mistakes because of her arrogance. Consequently the people of the UK experienced even more worry and suffering. It now must be made law that a PM that resigns or is forced to go before a year has passed, has no rights to the perks of the job after leaving. It is insulting and ridiculous that she should be able to set her friends up in the House of Lords, receive severance pay and other perks after being such an appalling PM. She blamed circumstance and not herself. She chose such an appalling cabinet that wasn't fit for purpose. She managed one thing, she attended the Queen's funeral, even Larry the cat could have managed that if they'd provided a comfy enough chair! Stop this nonsense NOW!

  • We demand a general election now
    The public has spoken. They want a general election now. A poll commissioned by the Mirror found that two-thirds of the general public want to head to the polls by the summer. After 14 years of Tory rule - and a host of failed leaders being chosen by a few thousand Conservative members rather than at the ballot box - people have had enough. Rishi Sunak has appeared to promise a vote will be held during this calendar year - before the theoretical deadline of January 2025 set out by the Fixed-term Parliament Act. But many in Westminster believe the Tories will cling on for a few more months and refrain from calling a vote until October. This is simply too long. Rishi Sunak has run Britain since October 2022. Never at any stage has the electorate been asked to choose him as their Prime Minister. This wait must end now. (Deltapoll interviewed 1,642 adults online between December 22 and 29. The data have been weighted to be representative of the British adult population as a whole.)

  • Block Boris Johnson's honours list
    Boris Johnson resigned in disgrace. But despite his actions around the Partygate scandal he's still had an honours list approved that gives the likes of Jacob Rees Mogg and Priti Patel knighthood and damehood. People who tried to defend and prop up Johnson's dodgy behaviour should not be rewarded with a lifetime position in the House of Lords. Right now the list has been approved, but the honours have not yet been awarded. A huge public outcry could get Rishi Sunak to rethink this list - and block it before it goes any further!

  • Boris Johnson should not stay in post after resigning.
    Boris Johnson should be removed from power to stop him making more unlawful decisions. "The proposal for the prime minister to remain in office - for up to three months - having lost the support of his cabinet, his government and his parliamentary party is unwise, and may be unsustainable. In such a circumstance, the prime minister maintains the patronage and, of even greater concern, the power to make decisions which power of will affect the lives of those within all four nations of the United Kingdom and further afield. Some will argue that his new cabinet will restrain him. I merely note that his previous cabinet did not - or could not - do so. For the overall wellbeing of the country, Mr Johnson should not remain in Downing Street - when he is unable to command the confidence of the House of Commons - for any longer than necessary to effect the smooth transition of government." Sir John Major - Former Conservative Prime Minister

  • Don’t make Paul Dacre a Lord
    Any day now it's expected to be announced that former Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre will be added to the House of Lords. In his time at the Mail, Paul Dacre has been accused of stirring up hatred against immigrants, politicians and judges alike - and now he could have a say on how the UK is run. And he and his paper are even currently facing legal action over alleged privacy breaches. At the very least, he should not be honoured with a peerage while the court case is in progress, but setting aside the legal action, someone like Paul Dacre, who used his time at the Mail to divide the country, represents the opposite of the values of fairness and respectfulness that we share as a country. He’s not the kind of person who should be celebrated by being made a Lord. Right now, it's still not confirmed, but if enough of us speak out against the idea of Paul Dacre being made a Lord, we can make sure his appointment doesn't become a reality.

  • STOP the Anti-Protest Laws
    The right to protest is a human right. The changes proposed in part III of the Home Office's Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts bill (published 9/3/21) will give the police and government powers to silence protests, whether a protest of 1 or a protest of 10,000. Whereas the previous powers (Public Order Act 1986) have allowed police to restrict demonstrations that risked serious public disruption, serious disorder or serious damage to property, the new bill adds additional justifications for restrictions: noise and the potential for ‘impact’. It also increases the opportunity for protestors to be prosecuted if they fail to comply with restrictions they are unaware of, and in broadening the definition of what constitutes a protest. Protests are noisy events - they are designed to demonstrate the public's feelings, many of those people may be marginalised from mainstream politics, with this their only way of being heard. They are designed to make an impact! The proposed changes are a clear attempt by the government to prevent dissenting voices being heard. In addition the changes proposed reduce future scrutiny by parliament through the use of statutory instruments, undermining the democratic process and placing the decision as to whether a protest can go ahead in the hands of the Home Secretary. These changes restrict the rights and freedoms of people from all sides of the political spectrum to assert their human and democratic right to protest. The Bill has its second reading in the House of Commons on Monday 15th and the first vote on Tuesday 16th March - urgent action is required. Please sign, share and write to your MP (link below).
