• End Telephone Number Withholding by Telemarketing Companies
    Companies phoning up without leaving a telephone number makes it impossible to effectively report them to Telephone Preferance Society etc. There is no reason for commercial firms to have the facility to withhold the number they are calling from, so the facility should be withdrawn as so many of them abuse it.

  • Whitemoss Landfill Western Extension - Say No to Toxic Waste
    The World Health Organisation's Declaration of Human Rights talks about everyone having the right to clean air. This development thus infringes upon the basic human right because it will have a 24/7 burn-off of gases. With Stocks Hall Nursing Home not 100 yards away, football pitches where hundreds of children play right next door, and houses looking onto it, vulnerable people, children and families are under threat of losing this basic human right, not just in the surrounding area but further afield too because of prevailing winds and underground water courses and extensive old coal mine workings. Strange odours already exude from the existing tip and can be smelt in the area, so obviously these emissions, with an unknown cocktail of chemicals, will adversely affect public health. People in the area have not been notified because of a loop-hole in the law as it is a national infrastructure plan rather than a local plan the latter of which would go through normal planning application processes with proper consultation. So local people have not had much time to raise objections before the dead-line of 11.59 p.m. on Friday, February the 28th, 2014, but the feeling of opposition is strong that there is a rising tide of protest.

  • Families For Clean Air
    Pollution, even from Defra approved stoves, invades neighbours' homes and has a significant, detrimental effect on their well-being, especially those with conditions such as asthma. Neighbours are unable to open windows and vents and it is impossible to remove the accumulative pollution. There is no safe level of particle emissions.

  • Review legislation that creates by-ways
    In the area that I live in north Wales there is a large network of by-ways principally due to old drovers and other historical routes. These are now all open to motorised vehicles and are being destroyed by large numbers of trail-bikers and off-road vehicles. This use is unsustainable, dangerous, unregulated, uncontrolled by the police or local authority, and is resulting in significant damage to the countryside and our historic heritage. Furthermore where large numbers of vehicles are frequently used the routes become too dangerous for other user groups and so walkers, horse-riders and cyclists are excluded.

  • Make the BBC allow comments on their Scottish politics stories on their website
    The BBC are shutting down debate in a profoundly undemocratic way. If they don't open up their website to all comments they will be accused of bias in favour of the British establishment. The people of the UK deserve a fair and democratic national debate, and the people of Scotland deserve the right to ask questions and discuss opinions. If this situation was happening in Syria or Ukraine it would quite rightly be criticised as unjust by the BBC, yet they practice this gagging of their own people in the UK. It really is a shameful way to behave.

  • Co-operate with the Co-op
    The Co-op, in all its dealings endeavours to be fair, and is a breath of fresh air when compared to the big banks and businesses. We will regret it if this long standing institution is allowed to fall now, when help could be given to save it.

  • Statue of Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev outside Royal Opera House
    Margot was Britain's greatest ever ballerina and Rudolf changed the role of men in ballet in the west forever. Their unlikely partnership was the greatest in ballet's history and inspired many to take up ballet and brought pleasure to millions. It made Britain's Royal Ballet the greatest ballet company in the world after the Bolshoi and the Kirov. It is a disgrace that there is no memorial to these wonderful dancers and their partnership. This should be changed in time for the centenary celebrations of Margot's birth (18 May 1919).

  • 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.

  • No Pub In Our Park
    So far a residents association has collected 700 signatures from the immediate area and it is necessary to escalate this to allow a greater response to this ill-advised proposal by a Council that has no interest in listening to its residents.

  • Stop Children's Centre and Nursery Cuts in Cambridgeshire
    These centres provide crucial universal and targeted support for parents, carers and young children. This withdrawal of funding will cause irreparable damage to the service, increase risk and vulnerability across the county, and mark a reversal of the 'Every Child Matters' agenda which is striving to eradicate inequality for under 5’s.

  • Citizens' "No Confidence in Government" Motion
    This is important because the Coalition Government does not have, indeed has never had, the support of, or mandate from, a majority of the electorate for the policies it is pursuing, Moreover, by its actions and omissions it has become very unpopular with the electorate, to the extent that they now hold it in contempt for its uncaring, unjust and cynical policies, its waste or stripping of national assets, and its undue influence by and preferences for the private sector, instead of serving and safeguarding the public interest, its paramount responsibility.

  • Stop the closure of Brain Cancer Centres
    Under plans from NHS England, it is intended to close three quarters of UK's specialist brain cancer centres who provide targeted radiotherapy treatment. This goes against everything that the NHS is supposed to stand for, meaning that possibly many additional miles will be travelled to one of the remaining few centres left. This is a disaster for patients and families alike and lead to totally unnecessary loss of life. Doctors, patients and families alike are furious as NHS England is rejecting doctors advice and is condemning patients to invasive brain surgery or total brain radiotherapy, whilst not using available resources sensibly. That NHS supposed transparency is once again not in existence means that already hard pressed families and patients with this invidious disease are left far behind their European and USA counterparts. It is a total travesty if these closures go ahead with the NHS Board members obviously having no knowledge of how this affects the patients and families lives on a daily basis.
