• Is it time to bring in a Universal Basic Income?
    The welfare benefits system has historically been riddled with problems, but more so over recent years. How many more people need to suffer before we realise that it is an unjust, complicated system which punishes the most vulnerable in society, and that the tough sanctions contribute to the escalation of mental and physical health problems, and ultimately to death in the most severe cases? A universal basic income would alleviate these issues, and could have the added bonus of providing a solid foundation on which more people might be financially able to start up their own creative industries. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/aug/10/our-generations-nhs-support-grows-for-universal-basic-income?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/may/03/universal-basic-income-coronavirus-shocks?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

  • Oppose the proposed 24 hour Filling Station in Cressington
    For the residents in the area immediately around the site this is going to be extremely disruptive. A 24 hour filling station in a residential area creating more traffic, more pollution and more congestion at busy times. It is unnecessary as there are already two other petrol stations within a mile of this site, one of which is already 24 hour. This Filling Station will not generate many jobs as it will be largely unmanned.

  • Fair Ferry prices for island residents
    The ferry prices are very unreasonable for island residents especially in the summer season. We live on an island so rely on the ferries to get off and over to the mainland whether it be for work, medical appointments or to visit loved ones. Isle of Wight wages are appalling enough compared to other parts of the country so therefore why are residents penalized further with the forever rising cost to cross the Solent.

  • Give English pupils grades teachers predicted
    Because our children’s lives matter: our young people have already suffered enough from coronavirus & interruption to their education. They are in despair over the awards process which has given generally poorer results awards today than predicted, & don't deserve to have their whole lifetime ruined. We must stand together to show them we believe in them, & use the weight of our support to get this right for them. This is too serious for delay: pupils are likely to lose their university places if they have to wait til next week to know how to appeal, make the appeal, & wait again while the thousands of appeals are processed. Pupils across the board stand to lose out for their whole lifetime if this is not put right IMMEDIATELY by accepting teacher predicted grades as Scotland has recognised & done. Our country will lose the contribution these talented young people can make to us in recovery & rebuilding, already our brightest pupils hoping to go into medicine science & IT are considering applications to foreign universities to study the subject & follow the career of their choice - they may never return to work here. Others will make decisions which may not make the most of their talents. Frustration, disappointment, mental health issues are likely to bring far reaching personal consequences if this failure in the grades awards process is not put right now.

  • Make school exam results Fairer
    Thousands of school students have had their final results unfairly downgraded. Many received a mark lower than what their teacher predicted - even though no-one sat an exam this year! The algorithm is biased against students who over perform versus their school average.
