• Replacing Inverkeithing High School - New Sports & Leisure Centre
    With a joint population of nearly 30,000 people in Rosyth, Inverkeithing, Dalgety Bay and North Queensferry none of these towns has a swimming pool and the people of these towns have been crying out for a swimming pool for years. Why not use the old Invekething High School to bring much-needed facilities to the area. Having a new sports centre and leisure complex on the old high school site would help bring footfall and income to Inverkeithing after the new High School moves to Rosyth

  • HSBC demands charities to fund millionaires. Shouldn't it be the other way round?
    HSBC has not the best track record in regards of being ethical and I don't want to focus on their recent scandals. As (volunteer) treasurer of a small charity I am shocked and saddened about the cynicism that HSBC shows by renaming their Community account to "Charitable" account and starts charging fees! Where is the charity in this? HSBC is regularly making headlines about splashing out on huge bonuses for their staff on the very top, well deserved or not. This means that charities are now paying for these bonuses! £60+p.a. is not a lot if you are a millionaire, but it really hurts any small charity with a shoestring budget. As our suggested donation is £40 means that we need to find 2 more supporters to fund HSBC bonuses. HSBC can easily afford to cover the costs of charity accounts and still give their staff massive bonuses.

  • Stop the closure of Blackheath Delivery Office
    For many years, Royal Mail has been closing post offices and delivery offices and making access to them more and more difficult. This latest poor decision comes at a time when demand for delivery office services is at an all-time high, and when road traffic must be reduced for air quality and climate reasons. Yet if this closure goes ahead, thousands of Royal Mail customers of Blackheath Delivery Office (BDO) will be forced to use Charlton and Greenwich Delivery Office (CGDO) instead, and because of its distance and difficulty of access, will likely take to their cars as the only realistic way of reaching it. Many residents and current customers of BDO don't even have access to cars, and will find it difficult and expensive, or even impossible to use CGDO.

  • The Tory rejection of a windfall tax condemns millions to fuel poverty!
    Bringing in a windfall tax on the huge profits made by fossil fuel giants, the Government would raise enough money to cover a £500 payment to six million households. This would include thousands in the Vale of Glamorgan, who are expected to be in fuel poverty by April and would also provide money for insulating homes to a decent standard. There is no greater proof that this Government has lost touch with the real world, they are more interested in saving Boris Johnson's reputation than helping the hard working people of Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan. It is natural justice to ask these giant companies to make a one off extra contribution to help so many hard working people who are facing appalling hardship. We desperately need politicians who have the political will to provide a lifeline for struggling bill payers!

  • Bring our West Coast rail services back into public ownership
    The Department for Transport is currently deciding whether to award Avanti a new 10-year contract to continue running services on our West Coast Main Line until October 2032. They are due to make a final decision by this October. This has to be stopped. Let’s not reward failure. Let’s make our West Coast public instead. ---- References: • 20 August 2021, 'West Coast Partnership: prior information notice', Department for Transport https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/west-coast-partnership-prior-information-notice • 2 July 2020, 'National Rail Passenger Survey Spring 2020', Transport Focus https://www.transportfocus.org.uk/publication/national-rail-passenger-survey-nrps-spring-2020-main-report • 21 October 2021, 'Details of operational support payments to franchised passenger rail operators under emergency agreements and National Rail Contracts', Department for Transport https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dft-payments-to-passenger-rail-operators-under-emergency-agreements/details-of-operational-support-payments-to-franchised-passenger-rail-operators-under-emergency-agreements • 6 January 2022, 'Rail prices to rise by the largest amount in nearly a decade', Money Saving Expert https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/2021/12/train-fares-rail-increase-march • 4 January 2022, 'Rail firms gave £38m to shareholders after being bailed out by taxpayer during Covid lockdowns', Daily Mail https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10366385/Rail-firms-gave-38m-shareholders-bailed-taxpayer-Covid.html

  • Remove convicted offenders from streaming platforms!
    I was shocked and appalled to see that artists convicted of horrific crimes such as R Kelly, Rolf Harris, Gary Glitter and Lostprophets' Ian Watkins were all freely available on nearly all major platforms to stream and purchase. They have been convicted of sexual offences with minors. What sort of message is this sending out? Are streamers unaware of their crimes? Why do they even have these platforms available. How would that make the victims' families feel? Do companies have zero morality that they still want to make a profit from peadophiles? R Kelly - "The jury found Kelly, was the ringleader of a violent and coercive scheme that lured women and children for him to sexually abuse." (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-58714203) Rolf Harris - "Rolf Harris has been jailed for nearly six years for 12 indecent assaults against four girls - including one aged just seven or eight." Mr Justice Sweeney said Harris, 84, had taken advantage of his celebrity status and had shown "no remorse". (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-28163593) Gary Glitter - "Former pop star Gary Glitter has been jailed for a total of 16 years for sexually abusing three young girls between 1975 and 1980...was sentenced for attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault and one of having sex with a girl under 13." (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31657929) Ian Watkins - "Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins has been sentenced to 35 years for a string of child sex offences including the attempted rape of a baby. Watkins, 36, from Pontypridd, pleaded guilty at Cardiff Crown Court last month to 13 child sex offences." (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-25412675) These are just four that I can think of - I am sure there are probably more.

  • The British Museum must not renew its sponsorship deal with BP
    This week it was revealed that the Director of the British Museum, Hartwig Fischer, is in advanced talks with BP about renewing their sponsorship deal. It’s vital that we don’t let another five years of BP sponsorship of the British Museum - or even a new ‘BP wing’ as part of its $1bn redevelopment plan - go ahead. It’s time that the British Museum picks a side on climate change, and stops sending the message to its visitors, especially young people, that fossil fuels can be a part of a liveable future. The plans to renew the sponsorship come as BP announces obscene profits, while people in the UK are being forced to choose between heating and eating, and the company admits it will continue to drill for new oil and gas for decades to come, despite the climate emergency. The trustees have a legal duty to protect the reputation of the museum. They must step in now, following in the footsteps of other major cultural institutions, and drop BP as a sponsor.

  • Open letter to Sajid Javid regarding the Mental Health impact of the UK Midwife Shortages
    It is not currently safe for women to give birth in the UK. Our services are very under funded and under staffed. Those midwifes who remain feel burnt out, unappreciated and are underpaid. The role of midwife needs to change and be better supported if we are ever going to be able to train, recruit and retain the 2500 additional midwives that are so desperately needed.

  • SmallChange!
    Do you ever ask for 1p change, or decide not to buy something because it was £5, not £4.99? Do you have jar at home full of pennies? Individually, it is practically worthless, but together we could raise enough to make an amazing difference.
