• Rishi Sunak: Fund Green Policies Now
    Devastating and extreme weather is already here. The recently released Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report is clear that we need to enact net zero policies immediately to prevent further warming of the earth. Further warming will make this extreme weather much worse with accompanying sea level rises and mass species extinction.

    When Leek town centre had a roundabout and less traffic lights, vehicles were not rushing and speeding so much and there were less accidents, fatalities and pollution caused by traffic light stops and starts. 20 mph speed limit will help shops survive and help our main industry, Tourism. Everyone should feel safe in their home town centre be it in Leek or any where else.

    It was not by the “authority” of the Housing Ombudsman; of which I am sure - most if not all of the tenants in the recent and shameful scandal over disrepair and living conditions (deemed adequate and suitable) will have happily been directed to by the relevant Housing Association’s that came under scrutiny; but rather it took exposure to damning Public outcry, vilification, shaming, and the WEIGHT of the gathering, and unfavourable Press to compel these deafened and autocratic Housing Associations to un-trench themselves, and act with decency; eventually withdrawing and retracting THEIR OWN shameful “self-determinations”. Equally NO politician, or local MP forced them to address this long-standing and indolent contradiction prior to this. Being unlikely to be victims in their OWN properties of mould (exacerbating health conditions), damp, fire hazard, and electrical disrepair; and not being subjected to living in these conditions (or similar) on a daily basis, - indolently encouraging YOU, to be patient, in THEIR enquiries, in absence of any degree of empathy, urgency, or understanding appearing to be forthcoming. In the absence of any impetus, enthusiasm, or motivation from our elected officials; our “representatives” indolently deeming the current framework for dispute resolution (the “broken” system that WE are THE VICTIMS of any failures or shortcomings in) as “adequate” and “fit for purpose”; out of a need for MORE robust, balanced, and EQUAL representation, and in the absence of any consideration, or concern on this matter being extended by our locally elected officials and MP’s. I urge and encourage ALL Housing Association tenants that have been, or remain dissatisfied with their treatment and experience from their Housing Association; frustrated and fed-up with the lack of interest or concern demonstrated by paid and elected officials expected to represent and look after OUR interests, to take this opportunity to rally together, make a difference to your treatment, – as vulnerable cash cows having no secure tenure, and sign my on-line petition for this long-overdue housing reform; add your voice (your tenancy), and rebuke your treatment, we need 100,000 signatures to bypass our MPs ourselves, and our struggle to be finally taken notice of and debated in Parliament, calling for the IMMEDIATE forming of a STATUTORY body to represent OUR interests - the average tenant. https://twitter.com/letdownbyMPs https://www.facebook.com/groups/593643284935407

  • Have you been let down by Chronomics, the Covid-19 testing provider?
    In these difficult times, we must stand together and do everything we can to support the ongoing efforts to reduce the spread and the impact of coronavirus. This should include calling out and distancing ourselves from companies who do not take their responsibilities in this endeavour seriously.

  • Add BSL to school curriculum
    I think everyone at some point in their life has felt annoyed that they have been unable to communicate effectively with a deaf person due to what is essentially a language barrier. This isn't a case of being in another country and not being familiar with the language, deaf people are in our home countries and we can't communicate effectively.

  • Give Kenilworth Lido a Fair Chance
    Outdoor swimming in Kenilworth is part of the town’s history.  Abbey Fields Lido was  one of the 1st in the country. The current outdoor pool is the furthest from the sea and the only safe public outdoor swimming facility within 30 miles. The pool’s heritage is highly valued, but change is in its history. The original pool has already been rebuilt twice and we now have the perfect opportunity to create a lido for today; with the latest chemical free filtering, and the best 21st century design and eco credentials.

  • Extend the Santander cycle hire scheme to Herne Hill
    There are a number of reasons why it’s a great idea to extend the Santander cycle hire scheme to Herne Hill. 1. It meets a transport need Herne Hill is an area of south London with limited access to the TfL transport network. We do not have a local Underground station (the nearest one is Brixton) or a TfL Overground station (the nearest one is Denmark Hill). The local bus routes are often crowded and the main roads are heavily congested with traffic. Extending the cycle hire scheme to Herne Hill would provide a key link to the Underground network, as people could cycle to Brixton where there is already a docking station and jump on the tube. If they are feeling energetic there is also the option to cycle into central London. 2. It will draw people to the area Having a docking station (or a few docking stations) in Herne Hill would improve the local economy as people could cycle here from Brixton. This makes Herne Hill more accessible to people who live in other parts of London, who would travel to Brixton by tube but might not take the extra 30 minute walk or crowded bus journey on to Herne Hill. We have some wonderful attractions here: Brockwell Lido, Herne Hill Velodrome and the Sunday Market, as well as five shopping parades with a wide range of independent shops and businesses. Extending the cycle hire scheme would make our high streets more accessible and help them to thrive. 3. The bikes will be well used One of TfL’s main requirements when deciding where to extend the cycle hire scheme, is they want to put it in places where it will be well used. People are more likely to borrow bikes where there are pleasant and safe routes to cycle them. The busiest docking stations are those around Hyde Park where people borrow a bike to cycle around the park. There are a lot of green spaces in and around Herne Hill which offer pleasant and enjoyable environments for cycling. Brockwell Park sits right in the centre of Herne Hill and is lovely to cycle around. Belair and Dulwich Parks are nearby, and can be accessed via the new segregated cycle lane on Rosendale Road, and Turney Road, which is also relatively quiet. The cycle route to/from Brixton is via Railton Road and the recent installation of a Low Traffic Neighbourhood there has seen an upsurge in active travel. 4. It will engage new cyclists We already have some good local cycle routes (as mentioned above), a number of local parks, and a Velodrome. However, it is impossible to use these cycling resources if you do not have access to a bike. Many people in Herne Hill live in flats, shared houses or small homes, and do not have space to store a bike. Others might be able to make space for a bike but need to try it out first before committing to buy their own. Extending the cycle hire to Herne Hill would improve the opportunities for people who cannot store their own bike to make cycling part of their commute, enjoy cycling in their local area, or simply try out cycling for the first time. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sign to show your support! There is already widespread support for this proposal from a range of local community groups, our local Councillors, and Helen Hayes MP. We are now looking to demonstrate that there is support from local residents and businesses. If you agree with this suggestion, please sign the campaign and share it with others who may also be keen. TfL are particularly interested to hear from local businesses, so if that’s you, it would be great if you can leave a comment, and/or get in touch with us via email to [email protected]

  • 100% Council Tax Reduction for people on low incomes in Torbay and South Hams
    These charges are forcing people into debt and considerable hardship. It simply does not make sense to take legal action against people with Council Tax arrears, who cannot afford to pay, and then direct them to food banks to feed their children.

    For last more than 200 years Gurkha’s have laid down their lives protecting, loving and serving The Queen and the country without any hesitation or fear. We have earned the name fearless fighter throughout the WW1 & WW2. Countless lives have been lost and families torn apart. Heroes were born during the wars and countless medals, trophies and even the highest Medal of Honor “Victoria Cross” have been awarded to the Gurkhas. But, on this very sad day all we are asking is our human rights, equality and justice.

  • AXA Insurance: Stop insuring Wildlife Crime!
    AXA provide insurance for every hunts legal fees, this covers Hunting Act offences and violence towards sabs and monitors. The first year of cover they actually lost money due to the high number of hunting act cases and arrests for assaults: https://huntingleaks.is/wp-content/uploads/legal-fees-insurance1920.pdf We are now asking everyone to please start your own campaign against AXA, the more of us who take them on whether with petitions, demos outside their premises, emails, phone calls whatever, the faster they are likely to pull the policy. Without legal insurance, each Hunting Act conviction or act of violence legal costs will have to either come directly from the hunt’s own funds or from a central fund, if it comes from a central fund then hunts who face less legal action may well wonder why they are paying out for others. Targeting AXA insurance will send a message to AXA and anyone that dares do business with wildlife terrorists that the public will not tolerate ethically bankrupt businesses. It also will send a shockwave through the remaining hunts, making them aware that their time abusing animals is nearing the end.
