  • Ridiculous Jam Laws
    A small British jam manufacturer (husband & wife team) recently introduced the first ever British apple-based jams onto the U.K. high street. However, the U.K. government has stated these products cannot legally be called jam because they don't contain enough sugar!!! Standard jams have a sugar content exceeding 60%; however, these apple-based jams have a sugar content of 52-53%. Unfortunately, between 51-59% sugar content there is no clear legal definition as to what these British apple-based products should be called. It's a jam 'no-mans land'! Jam Law across the EU is meant to be harmonised. However, France, Germany and Denmark have all recently used an 'escape clause' in the legislation to permit jams with sugar content below 60%. The U.K. government now needs to use this 'escape clause' to account for British apple-based jams. After 12 months of battling for the issue to be addressed, the U.K. government has finally agreed to consult on making changes to the Law (see http://www.defra.gov.uk/files/jam-consult-statement.pdf). However, there is no guarantee that the Law will be changed and it wouldn’t occur until the end of 2013. We therefore need to keep pressure on the U.K. government to ensure the ridiculous Jam Laws are changed. During these recessionary times, it is vital that the U.K. government supports British business, British innovation and British-specific traditions, i.e. Bramley apple growing. With obesity rates increasing, we should also be encouraging the general public to consume jams with more fruit and less added sugar.

  • MIU Grindon Lane Primary Care Centre
    I find it easier to go to a walk in center if I am not feeling well outside surgery hours that is the reason why I am setting up this petition the hospital is nearer to my home but I feel as though it is wasting doctors time if I go with an illness or injury outside surgery times.I have used the Walk in Centre and have always received efficient treatment and advice and also feel as though I am not a burden to the nurses and doctors who work there.

  • Bring back £1.2m in primary health care services to Haverhill.
    Half of Haverhill is one of 20% of the most deprived health in Suffolk. How would you feel if you had a young child or an elderly parent that could not get to a doctor at weekends, evenings or night and an out of hours doctor that has to cover 120 square miles.

  • the Full Restoration & increase in OfGens management powers over the utility companies
    We all know to our cost that Competition between Energy suppliers is a myth When one increase its prices then the rest are quick to follow Ofgen gave up control as it naively thought that completion between the companies would do its work for them, but they forgot one important fact that all major companies naturally like to for cartels in order to ensure their continuing profits When one increase its prices then the rest are quick to follow as we know to our cost Politicians like to patronise the public & they think that we are stupid when they say shop around but we all are aware that this advice is fatuous

  • Saving the British Pub
    The British Pub is being extinguished by the fact it so much cheaper to buy beer in supermarkets and drink it at home. If my idea was adopted I do not believe the Government would lose much income because of the companion sales of wines and spirits to the companions of draught beer drinkers. The pub is much more than a drinking den, it is where people meet and interact, play games and socialise.
