  • Funding for new & safe medication for treatment of schizophrenia & bipolar illness.
    All current medication for these illnesses are very dangerous, often causing 30k of weight gain. Diabetes, abnormal muscle movements, seizures, hepatitis, disturbance in speech & language. Damage to liver & pancreas, loss of memory.The list is long. Current medication is no more than a tranquilliser or "knock on the head" rendering the sick subdued and helpless. Unable to take part in an active social life or go to work. My daughter was at university when she became ill. She weighed 9 stone or 58k, her life was just beginning. She now takes the only type of medication that is available. She now has no confidence, as not only has she, " lost her mind" she has, "lost her body" too as she now weighs 15 stone or 95k. She has no friends, no social life or a job. The medication she must take is not working, because she has not recovered. This is why it is so important to save young lives by developing new and safe medication for these serious illnesses. Many people with schizophrenia end up in prison, costing the government & tax payers, when they should be taking new, safe, medication & living normal lives. This is a global illness.

  • Refugees Welcome in Heathfield and surrounding area
    The horror of the refugee crisis was really brought home to myself and many others in this nation after seeing the heart-breaking photo of a toddlers lifeless body lying washed up on the beach. There are many people in this country who do care and do want to help these desperate people. They need a safe home as much as you and I. If each town agrees to house a small number of refugees it would be possible to make a huge difference to a large number of these people without putting too much pressure on any one area of our country. If you agree please sign this petition or start your own local petition to show our government that we do care and want our nation to agree to help many more refugees.

  • Let's house refugees in Cirencester
    Aylan, the toddler who drowned fleeing Syria, was just three years old. His town was under attack by Isis. His five year old brother and his mum also died trying to reach safety. We don't want Britain to be the kind of country that turns its back as people drown in their desperation to flee places like Syria. Throughout history the British people have welcomed refugees - Jewish children during WW2, Ugandan Asians during the reign of terror by Idi Amin, French Huguenots in the 17th century, Hungarians in the 1950s, Vietnamese boat people in the 1970s, Kosovar refugees in the 1970s - So let's stand up for Britain's long tradition of helping refugees fleeing war. Let's show the Prime Minister that we, the people of the UK, are proud to do our part and provide refuge to people in their hour of need. Please sign and share, or start your own petition for your town or city here: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/efforts/refugees-welcome

  • Refugees welcome in Orkney
    I want to help ease the suffering of these desperate people. We must stand up and show our solidarity, welcome these people into our country and stop turning our backs on them. How many more children like Aylan and his brother have to die before we do something. The time to act is now, please open our doors and let them in.

  • No minimum wage, zero hour contracts for skilled photographers with expensive equipment
    As a skilled professional or student, minimum wage is completely out of line with market level and does not reflect the time required to learn the trade and the expensive equipment photographers must buy, maintain and replace regularly. Zero hours contracts are also exploitative and indicate that ad hoc work will be given. In this case the ethical choice would be to form a partnership with a local photographer/ several local photographers for these events or offer a competitive rate of pay as this would lead to the university paying a fair price for the service received .

  • EBacc is discriminatory towards students with SEN
    The narrowing of the curriculum can only benefit the few, we are moving backwards not forwards. Students who are able in so many ways, but struggle in others, are going to find a system where they can only fail. Just because a student struggles to write today doesn't mean they wont be an excellent business person of tomorrow. Just think: Richard Branson, Winson Churchill, Walt Disney. Albert Einstein famously had specific learning needs and had a terrible memory, he constantly failed to memorize the simplist of things. In a system where students are expected to memorise fact after fact to be tested on whether they have remembered them (not necessarily if they have understood them or can adapt them) even Eistein would be classed as a failure, is that really right?

  • End rule by minorities
    40% of people did not vote in the last election as they felt their views were not represented or the current system meant their vote was meaningless. The Government was elected by less than 39% of those who voted. The Government received the votes of less than 20% of those entitled to vote. No Party could claim a Legitimate right rule the country after the last election. First past the post works well in a 2 party system, but that has ended.

  • Say no to Sports Hub in Greenbelt Walton-on-Thames Riverside
    The site is 50 metres from the river Thames in a peaceful part of the river in Walton-on-Thames. Between the site and the waters edge sits the Weir Hotel, a public house that was built in 1856 and is frequented by many on a summers evening. The floodlighting will delete the night sky, causing so much light pollution , the bats that use the Thames Corridor for navigation will become confused. A noise survey was carried out in 2012 by the Weir Hotel proving the bats are here. The constant noise from 6 football pitches, 4 rented to the public until 10pm every night will cause noise pollution and destroy the ambience of this area. This proposed site is Council land and Elmbridge Borough Council are applying for planning permission for themselves. Please help us stop them.
