• 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.

  • 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 The Electoral commission is the organisation tasked with this crucial role but its powers are limited and outdated.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
    Around nine million people are unable to have their say on who represents them - 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. It's time to bring in the missing millions at last.

  • 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.

  • SKY - Allow SNP on Leader's Debate
    Scottish voters will be listening to the debate and will be restricted to the policies of two or three political parties who do not speak for a large proportion of the Scottish Electorate. Further-more, by not allowing the SNP a platform, you are reducing their ability to convert non-SNP voters to consider voting for the party and their policies. We are not asking for any preferential treatment, only that you treat all parties the same. As Scots, we pay the same SKY fees as the rest of the country and it is important that our voices are heard. We were told this was a Union of Equals and we ask SKY TV to ensure that during this election we are made to feel that statement is true.

  • Support the 1950s Women
    3.8 million women have been caught up in government efforts to cut the costs of paying for the state pension and to equalise the age at which men and women receive the state pension. We are your moms, grans, wives, sisters, aunts and friends and never ever thought we would be protesting in our 60s following what many term the ‘Great State Pension Robbery’. I start this petition in support of all the campaigning pensions group who all want justice.

  • Fair Election Debates
    We live in an multi-party democracy and in a general election voters will have a choice between at least three major national parties and several credible smaller parties. Newspapers are reporting that the Conservatives are pressing for a debate just between the Conservatives and Labour falsely narrowing the options open to voters, denying the public a balanced programme and unfairly advantaging two parties at the expense of the others.

  • No to Car Parking Charges in Clackmannanshire
    We should be supporting local businesses by trying to increase the number of people visiting Clackmannanshire and spending in the local economy. The introduction of parking charges will impact local businesses, reduce tourism and be a tax on local people trying to access their own community. This is a bad decision and the Councillors who supported the charges should reverse their decision without delay.
