  1. Ensuring women considering an abortion get balanced advice

    Nadine Dorries campaigned for this last year, and now the Government are supposedly consulting about this, but there's no indication that anything's going on. Let's show the Government that this is something that concerns us - along with late abortions and babies being aborted because they're the wrong sex

      • Public funds to be made available for inquest into death of Jimmy Mubenga

        Jimmy Mubenga, an Angolan national, died while being 'restrained' by G4S security guards on a deportation flight in October 2010. Eyewitnesses on the plane heard him complaining that he could not breathe, crying for help and shouting: "They're going to kill me."

        The Crown Prosecutions Service decided in June 2012 not to bring manslaughter charges against the guards. Lord Rathbotham (former chief inspector of prisons - now a crossbench peer) has called this decision 'perverse', and demanded that public funds be made available for an inquest to properly establish what caused the death of Jimmy - a former student leader…

        • Diabetics licenses removed after two low blood sugars in a year. Even when asleep.

          Up to one million people with diabetes could lose their driving licences because of harsh new European rules classifying them as unfit to drive.
          Experts claim the ‘unnecessarily strict’ changes will affect hundreds of thousands who have been driving for decades without problems.

          • Ofqual - to re-grade English GCSE exam papers

            We should put pressure on the Government and Ofqual to re-grade English GCSE exam papers.
            It is unfair that Wales should get theirs looked at and not England and Scotland.
            It is unfair that the children that took the English GCSE in January had it marked under one set of rules, but those that took it in June had theirs changed.
            Thousands of children will have to re-sit or lose out on jobs in a world where they need all the help they can get.

            • Eliminating KS2 SATs

              Lots of year 6s are put under too much pressure when the time comes to their SATs. These determine their sets in their next school, and they are recorded in the school's status. These young, innocent children are put through a lot. They are too harsh, and stressful.

              • making poor record keeping in care/residential homes a criminal offence

                It is the right of all peoplenwithin our society to be provided with the best possible care when they need it. This is especially true of vulnerable adults such as the elderly and disabled being cared for in nursing and residential homes.

                The shocking revelation of incidents at Winterbourne has shown that such care is not always provided.

                I work in safeguarding adults in a local council and have been involved in many meetings where the death of service users have been discussed. In some of these meetings, it has been disclosed that a charge of "criminal negligence" has been…

                    • Support Lord Falconer's Lords Bill on assisted dying

                      I have just left an excellent public meeting at which this Bill was debated. There were various powerful arguments in favour of the Bill, including:

                      several powerful testimonies of personal experiences, mainly with long-suffering parents who wanted to end their life.
                      the Bill is not shortening life, it is shortening death!
                      the Bill is very narrow in its scope in order not to put people off.
                      the Bill is based on 16 years positive experience of similar legislation in Oregon
                      It is a citizen's right to choose when to die, and not parliamentarians, or medics.

                            There appears to be an apalling abuse of Human Rights ongoing in China regarding people peacefully practising an apolitical spritual activity. I have just recieved a 'flyer' on this and am horrified that it's happening and is little publicised.

                              the Southern Cross collapse has shown , once again the way residents of care homes are exposed to financial weather , both unforeseen , and only too well foreseen by speculators .

                                Fetus's are alive and can feel pain in the womb! Plus those born alive after an abortion are often killed in cruel, despicable way (acid , spinal cord being cut , and if the acid fails, then left slowly to die without pain relief!!!)

                                • Absent parents... Make it illegal to abandon children emotionally and financially

                                  I have had enough of absent parents avoiding their emotional and financial responsibilities. As a single parent of 10 years, my children have had very little financial support and no emotional support from their biological father.

                                  This infuriates me and I am on a mission to 'make a change'!!

                                  Thousands of voices are better than one!!

                                  I am going to write to my local MP about this situation and ask what the leagal steps are to 'make a change'.
                                  If your local MP receives lots of letters about the same issues, they take them to the House of Commons for…

                                  • Petition the governement to have Russia removed from the G8

                                    As the editorial in French newspaper 'Liberation' said "[the sentencing of Russian pop-punk band 'Pussy Riot' was] a travesty of justice and democracy. Russia is not a country of the rule of law, it has nothing to do alongside the G8 democracies."

                                    Let us act on this dispicable act of intimidation by a government against its people

                                      • The Government needs to tell the truth about the International Bill of Rights since 1948 and pass a UK Bill in full compliance with it.

                                        The UK was a founding member of the United Nations in 1945 and the UN's Human Rights Commission drew up the Universal Declaration in December 1948, which it agreed with.

                                        However, in Jan 1949 the then Labour Prime Minister (Clement Attlee) claimed that this Declaration was not 'legally binding' on the UK's Government. When pressed by opposition MP's, he also claimed that "we would nevertheless work towards it". Although he arrogantly also claimed that these rights were better protected in the UK, than anywhere else in the world, which was and still is a lie.

                                        • Illegalise the use of mobile phone tracking technology by private businesses in public spaces.

                                          I recently read an article in which the Shopping Centre in the town where I live would start tracking the mobile signals of the people inside it, without consent of those shopping there. And the only opt out of this would be for the person to turn off/not take there mobile phones. I, by coincidence, went shopping at the same centre the day after reading this article and I was eagle-eyed enough to spot a warning sign telling people that this technology was being used, and on the sign I found, I was shocked about the size of it and…
