• Britain to apply re-join The European Free Trade Association [EFTA]
    In 1972 Britain left the European Free Trade Association to join what has become the European Union. The current four members, of EFTA, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Leichtenstein all enjoy a high standard of living. They can trade with both Europe and with other countries. Iceland and Norway have their coastal fishing rights. EFTA is part of the EuropeanThe Single Market but not of the Customs Union Britain and Ireland have both opted out of the.Schengen agreement. This means we can maintain our borders and passports as present. There would be no need for any Irish border There would be a charge, but this is less than half the cost of leaving the EU. This path could be acceptable to both remainers and to leavers Many English and Scottish MPs already accept this to be a solution

  • Talbot Green Parking Review
    Parking in Talbot Green is extremely limited, and with increasing popularity of the area as a shopping and dining destination a comprehensive review of both on and off-street parking is required. With so few opportunities for long-term parking for those working in Talbot Green, residential streets are cluttered with vehicles with residents and their visitors finding it difficult to park on their own streets. A balance needs to be found that allows Talbot Green to thrive both economically and residentially.

  • Think again. No KCal content on all menus.
    This would impede creativity & the use of seasonal produce within small independent establishments. Increase food waste by not using food in new dishes on the day due to not being able to accurately display the calorific content at short notice. Cost money small businesses simply do not have to ensure all recipes are tested for kcal content. Take up time that small business owners do not have to ensure this info is gained and displayed accurately. It would be detrimental to artisan providers & thus have the opposite effect. Less small establishments to choose from as they close down due to one more thing they have been asked to do that is unmanageable. This is in a time when small business closure is at its highest in recent years. The larger chains would most likely remain-providing more processed & cheaper, lower quality produce to the people of Scotland. We want a diverse high street with independent restaurants to choose from. Scottish Government please think again & don’t kill Scotland’s amazing independent food culture!

  • Transparency of Think Tank Funding
    Many think tanks interviewed or quoted in the news present themselves as independent researchers acting in the interest of the general public, when in fact the opinions and research they put forward serve the interests of a corporate rich and powerful elite.

  • UK Parliament to return from summer recess
    The country is facing a crisis. It would seem that the current Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, is intent on forcing through a no deal Brexit which would be disastrous in a number of ways, including: · Serious damage to both the UK economy and to that of our European neighbours. · The potential loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs. · The potential shortages of medicines with the potential for people to die. · Potentially hundreds of businesses folding. · Adverse environmental consequences including increased carbon emissions from people increasing trade with non EU countries (in general, much further away). It is clearly much more sensible and environmentally efficient to trade with our near neighbours. Given that we are facing a climate crisis this is particularly important. · Further uncertainty and anxiety for both EU nationals living in the UK and UK nationals living in EU countries. · Subsequent to a no deal, all areas of our relationship with the EU would have to be worked through at a micro rather than a macro level, creating a massive amount of work for both the UK and our European partners. One of the factors potentially making no deal more likely would seem to be the lack of parliamentary time available between now and 31st October. Given the urgency of the situation, I believe that Parliament should be recalled as soon as possible to allow sufficient time for MPs to discuss and agree alternative options. No deal has the potential to be disastrous for the country so every effort needs to be made to avoid this.

  • Dominic Cummings must face the parliamentary committee to answer questions on the leave campaign
    Mr Cummings was incharge of the worst case of misleading the people of Uk ever, he was the major campigner and director of the leave campaign. This has been shown to have broken electral law and the missused data against GDPR rules. He refused to answer to the commons committee on his actions during the campaign and is in contempt of parliament. He has no respect for either our laws or our parliament and is it i therefore of utmost impotance that he face the parliamentary committee to answer questions re his conduct in the leave campaign

  • in Support of the Green New Deal in UK
    Because there is a climate and environmental emergency. The government's first responsibility is to protect its people. The UK Government is clearly not doing this in respect to the current climate crisis.. Given the urgency of the situation as described by the IPCC we need to put the climate crisis at the top of the political agenda.

  • Bring Parliament back to debate Brexit. Time is running out
    This is the biggest single issue in 75 years for the British Government, with less than 90 days, it is not time to going on holiday. The British people deserve focus and this matter deserves all the time it can be given.

  • Recall Parliament
    The Government of Boris Johnson is hellbent on inflicting a No Deal Brexit on the British people, despite the 2017 Conservative Party manifesto promising a “smooth and orderly departure” from the EU, and a “deep and special partnership with our friends and allies across Europe”. Parliament needs time to prevent this impending disaster, and so must be recalled immediately.

  • Political party funding
    Parliament is there to serve the nation, the whole population, not to further the interests of small sections of society to the exclusion of others. It is not new; many countries such as Germany and Denmark have such a system. It has it faults but it is not open to the kind of abuse that is rife in the UK. It's an old adage but still true "He who pays the piper calls the tune". We must reform this corrupt system.

  • Knife-crime emergency
    On 8 March a teenager was fatally stabbed near where I live. I wrote to the Queen, the prime minister and my MP with 11 specific suggestions for dealing with the emergency including 'spend whatever is necessary because saving lives is more important than reducing the National Debt'. Neither the Queen nor the PM replied to me but I gathered that my letters to them were forwarded to the Home Office. Only my MP replied. Since then I have exchanged numerous letters and emails with officials at Buckingham Palace and the Home Office. It seems to me that none of the people to whom I wrote or emailed, except my MP, actually read my 11 suggestions. Instead I got standard letters telling me government policy, with which I was already familiar. I feel I had wasted my time.
