  1. Reject Marischal Square Development, Aberdeen

    Aberdeen City Council, in association with Muse Developments and Aviva Investors, have duped the public in a sham public consultation for a new development in Aberdeen. It is opposite the most beautiful, largest granite building in the world, Marischal College. (Alhambra is the largest, but Marischal College is a stunning building.) The Council entered into a very risky financial contract, which includes a potential breach of State Aid regulations - public money to underwrite private profit. Thousands of protestors have taken part in a emailing campaign and protested on the streets.
    A motion by the council opposition was defeated in…

    • Councils to use agencies that have availability of staff to care for people that need to leave hospital, not let cost be dictating factor.

      Local councils should use agencies that have carers available when people need to leave hospital. This would stop bed blocking and prevent people like my poor Dad, (88 years old), from being stuck in a hospital bed for FOUR months!! He is so upset, he has given up and to be honest, I think he will die in there if something is not done soon.

      • Making Justice for Child Abuse easier & less traumatic for the child

        The statistics show that in 99% of all reported cases of child abuse, the child was actually abused, yet one child being abused is not enough evidence, (without actual physical evidence) to take court action. The law wants more than one child to be abused before it is going to take any action - now how totally twisted and wrong is this?

        It is also shocking to hear that in over 90% of cases of sexual abuse to children is done by someone known to the child. So in most cases when the sexual abuse is uncovered it is then…

        • Save the Gondar Gardens Covered Reservoir from development

          Please help us to preserve an area of green open space in an urban environment.

          This protected Open Space and Site of Nature Conservation Importance is a “green lung … of high environmental value” (Planning Inspector 2013) and provides views which “constitute a considerable public asset” (Planning Inspector 2005). We urge Camden Council to refuse plans for building on the reservoir site which would destroy the Open Space, increase the population of Gondar Gardens by 50% and put additional stress on oversubscribed schools, parking and other services.

          The whole of this undisturbed open space in north-west London (NW6 1HG) has…

          • Petition Government to ban short selling of UK listed company stocks

            Short selling of stocks impacts everyone's pensions, it also impacts anyone's other investments in UK listed companies. Suppose your pension advisor invested £100,000 of your pension pot into RBS shares just prior to a gang of stock short sellers attacking RBS stock, within a few days the price of the stock has halved and your pension pot is now worth £50,000 less. A typical scenario that happens to many stocks every week. The majority of people don't realise that short selling has been impacting their pensions regularly. Short selling should be illegal. Short selling is when someone, or mostly an…

            • Demonstrate support for the current Land Reform (Scotland) Bill

              The bill was introduced in parliament on 23rd June; http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/parliamentarybusiness/Bills/90675.aspx

              I am still getting my head around how the bill differs to the proposals in the consultation document; http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/parliamentarybusiness/Bills/90675.aspx

              here is a youtube link to the launch of the bill :https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtube_gdata&v=K7jaqTOqk0E

              Land Reform Minster Aileen McLeod has pledged to end “the stop start nature of historic land reform” with the publication of legislation today.

              The Bill is designed to ensure the issues of fairness, equality and social justice connected to the ownership of, access to and use of land in Scotland are given a permanent footing with the creation…

              • Support EFVI.EU - Fight against draconian legislation that only benefits the tobacco and pharmaceutical industries.

                We have a European citizens initiative www.efvi.eu in place so we can get a seat at the table to negotiate a fairer deal on the use of e-cigarettes, directives put in place on the 26th of February have effectively banned all ecig products on the market today with each member state having to put these policies in force by 2016, this directive will only put public health at risk and deny smokers the use of a scientifically proven safer alternative. The EU regulations are so disproportionate that it will only be the large multinational tobacco and pharmaceutical companies that will…

                • NHS to Adopt a Simple App Programme to Reduce Obesity-Related Costs

                  The Office of National Statistics said obesity is costing the NHS £4.2 billion a year (Social Trends 41 - Health 2011).
                  At his first speech since the election Health Minister Jeremy Hunt said, on obesity, culture change was needed.
                  Simon Stevens, Chief Exec of the NHS has called for 'bold action in tackling the rising tide of avoidable diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer......using a full range of tools at our disposal' - prevention is a key factor in the NHS's manifesto for the next 5 years.
                  I therefore suggest a campaign to request of these two gentlemen that the NHS…

                    • Fair Votes Now

                      Once again our voting system has failed voters.

                      The new Parliament doesn't match the way we voted.

                      Our voting system was designed for an era when almost everyone voted for the two big parties. But people have changed: they support a wider range of parties than ever before. It’s time the system caught up with how we actually vote.

                      We want a fairer, more proportional voting system which ensures that seats in Parliament match the way people vote. This would make sure people’s choices were fairly reflected in Parliament, and would allow everyone to vote for someone they believe in.

                          • Transatlantic trade and investment partnership (TTIP), a huge trade deal being negotiated behind closed doors at the European commission.

                            Oppose the transatlantic trade and investment partnership (TTIP), a huge trade deal being negotiated behind closed doors at the European commission between EU bureaucrats and delegates from the US. Amazingly it proposes "tribunals" which are nothing to do with our law where international companies could force our government to change their policy on regulating large areas of the economy: food safety, NHS and social care, drug regulation are just some examples. It could make 38 degrees and our parliament largely irrelevant ! The European Commission supports it. Resist !!!

                              • Protect the BBC from damaging Government interference

                                The Government should not force damaging cuts upon the BBC by abolishing the license fee and the BBC Trust, or forcing the sale of BBC assets. Undermining the BBC is contrary to the wishes of the majority of the British public, who recognize the immense cultural value of such a hugely creative institution.

                                In the forthcoming license fee review, the Government will endeavour to impose severe cuts upon the BBC in order to benefit the commercial broadcasters. The Government is too close to commercial broadcasting lobbyists, and is acting in their interests, not in the public interest. In particular, abolishing…

                                  • Natural England - looses 50% of bat volunteers.

                                    Natural England had about 1000 highly skilled and qualified volunteers in protected species work - for bats - up to the end of this month, March 2015

                                    Bat conservation trust has sent me an email saying : "We estimate only 50% of VBRVs (around 600 individuals) will available for visits nationwide from 01 April."

                                    ( VBRV = Volunteer Bat roost visitors)
                                    Now instead of NE being proud that they have very expert people, several of whom are members of CIEEM (Charters Inst of Ecology and Environmental management ) , they have made these very experienced volunteers jump through numerous hoops…

                                    • All prospective MPs to have 50%+1of the vote to be elected by constituents

                                      If trade unions have to have 40% vote of members pre strike action
                                      it follows that MPs have to have 50%+1 of the vote to be elected
                                      not as at present 18%/ 20%/or 22%
                                      Only one third of MPs at present were elected by 50% of the vote this is wrong

                                      • MP's pay rises should be linked to an average of public sector pay rises

                                        We agree a basket of settlements to be included e.g. Police, nurses, teachers, local council workers - MPs will automatically be awarded a pay rise of the average of our basket of public sector posts. After all, we're all in this together - aren't we? I notice the Welsh Assembly Members have finally hitched up their gravy train and 17% is the figure in their trough.

                                        • Fight a quarry application which will devastate 470 acres of farm land

                                          A small quarry in the Forest of Dean, in a tourist beauty spot, is now applying for a huge expansion up to 470 acres. This expansion will not only mean one farmer losing his whole farm and livelihood, two other farmers losing hundreds of acres of farmland, but will affect thirteen close properties, an AONB, two historic villages, an SSSI, Ancient Woodland and Historic monuments. It will also set a UK wide precedence for smaller buffer zones which will affect hundreds of people living near quarries. Please help us fight this one...
