    • Discouraging cold calling

      Cold callers regularly withhold their numbers. Line providers should be legally obliged to provide an option enabling subscribers to block calls from withheld numbers.

      • Stop T-mobile increasing fixed contract prices before the agreed term has passed.

        Like thousands of mobile phone users, I have received a letter from my provider telling me that they are going to increase the cost of my contract half way through it term.
        The excuse is that they need to keep up with inflation.
        This is just another case of greed to provide the shareholders with bigger payouts.
        Once we have signed a contract, we the user cannot change our mind or reduce what we pay for the services without paying a penalty.
        A penalty should also apply to the phone provider, in this case T-mobile.

        • Protect employees from abuse by their companies for lifting and moving accidents

          Many staff are employed in jobs which require lifting and moving heavy objects, eg some airline staff, Special Assistance helpers.
          These staff have NO protection from the companies that require them to do this. If they injure themselves eg whilst lifting a disabled person from a wheelchair to a seat:
          - they do NOT get any pay whilst they are recovering/off
          - they have to pay for their own treatment, and
          - usually do not receive any compensation for their injuries
          - may have to leave their job
          - may have serious health problems, requiring treatment and other home adjustment…

          • MPs should have a local house supplied (and withdrawn) with the job.

            Like the church vicarage system, the local taxpayer should supply the elected MP with a suitable size local house for the term they represent the electorate, which they would lose if deselected. This would mean MP's do not build up any equity/advantage via property price increases and would reacquaint MPs with the insecurity of tenure common to the people they represent. The properties would be held in trust by the local council on behalf of council taxpayers.

              • Childcare vouchers vs Tax-free Childcare

                Childcare vouchers have become an important part of many working parents’ lives, and a lot of families simply could not afford to pay for quality childcare without this assistance from the government. There will be some families better off with Tax-Free Childcare when it comes into effect, but once a parent has switched to the new system there will be no going back. The vast majority will be worse off. Unfortunately, this also adds a constraint on people moving jobs, because if you leave your employer (who has the child voucher scheme) and join another you will NOT be able…

                • Fight the Crown Estate residential property sell off

                  The Crown Estates has for many generations rented farms and residential properties to the public - the South-West having a substantial part of these. As a result many families have remained in the same properties for years (Often generations). Over the past few years Crown Estates have decided to turn their attentions to developing retail/business assets in... guess where? Yup, London. As a result they need vast amounts of cash to fund this. To get this cash it looks as though they are rapidly selling off swathes of the rural estate. Tenants are being given 2 months to quit -…

                  • A more proportional voting system for the UK Parliament

                    A referendum should be held on whether to implement the Alternative Vote Top Up system (also known as AV+) as recommended by the Jenkins Commission.

                    The commission was asked to take into account the following four requirements, and recommended AV+ as the best solution:
                    - broad proportionality,
                    - the need for stable government,
                    - an extension of voter choice, and
                    - the maintenance of a link between MPs and geographical constituencies.

                    The current UK parliament voting system produces a result which is clearly not proportional and not very democratic.

                    A referendum rejected the Alternative Vote, but AV on it's own…

                    • Cut to 10 percent Vat on pub and food service outlets. To keep pubs afloat ,jobs and social structures.this would more than retain the tax t

                      This is to save pubs which are dying. The overheads are enormous, with rents etc. they provide many jobs and are a social asset. The tax lost would soon be regained with increased turnover.there is already duty on the drink so vat is tax on a tax like petrol.staff pay tax too. Business rates are greedy, no wonder so many are going bust. As it is now people can't afford to eat out.

                      • An end to MPs policing their own ethics and standards

                        Maria Miller has just been asked to repay £5,800 in expenses she was not entitled to, once again undermining our confidence in the integrity of the political system. This is further compounded by two additional factors. Firstly, the original amount of £45,800 (set by the IPSA), if that had been benefits, would have meant she would be facing a minimum 1 year custody sentance, instead of having to say sorry. Secondly, it was reduced down to £5,800 by the House Commons Committee on Standards, i.e. MPs. How can we have confidence in the integrity and accountability of our politicians if…

                        • A call for the instant dismissal of any MP who is found to be over claiming expenses they are not entitled to

                          Too many MPs are getting away with over claiming on expenses. While in politics they are protected by peers and their mis-claiming brushed under the carpet, if an employee in any other industry or profession was caught doing this, they would be instantly dismissed and possibly prosecuted. I call for this action to be taken against any politician working under UK law who commits this kind of fraud in order to restore a sense of trust in UK politicians.

                          • An inquiry in to the poisoning of high numbers of raptors across the country by land owners breaking the wild birds directive legislation

                            There have been large numbers of Eagles, Buzzards, Hawks etc poisoned this year.
                            The RSPB and other wildlife organisations put lots of work and money in to trying to protect these magnificent creatures and land owners worry about them taking the pheasants (an introduced species) which the land owners and their friends like to shoot. Native species of birds are being deliberately poisoned in favour of an introduced species. This is illegal and more needs to be done about it.

                            • Replace MPs 2nd home mortgage subsidy with state owned or rented accomodation

                              Following the Maria Miller and previous scandals regarding the opportunities for the misuse of the MPs second home mortgage allowances and the draconian application of the 2nd bedroom rules, it is surely time to replace this blatant profiteering with an alternative "not-for-profit" system.

                              Alternatives could be a combination of:

                              > state owned apartment block(s) with various sized flats to suit MPs needs: this could include shared common facilities such as large reception/meeting rooms and guest bedrooms

                              > within above, MPs who live close to London (such as Miller who has only a 45m commute from Basingstoke) and should therefore need…

                              • Close the Fixated Threat Assessment Centre and pay their victims compensation.

                                The Fixated Threat Assessment Centre breach Human Rights and Civil Liberties. They deny victims access to lawyers and arrest and hold people purely based on rumors and lies. I lost my job because I was held prisoner for 4 months purely as a result of false information. They government are breaching Magna Carta by allowing the FTAC to continue.

                                    I can't get my head round a child killer inside for life can gain monetary payment because he was badly beaten up by another prisoner. The easy solution would be to put him in solitary confinement for life.

                                    • Ask David Cameron if he realises support for Maria Miller reinforces the public's disdain for politicians

                                        • should we have a referendem on whether we should have a referendem

                                          We had a referendum in London as to whether we wanted to have a Mayor and an Assembley to run London.

                                          Why can we not have a referendum on Europe as to whether we have a referendum : Now or on a set date or after the election or Not at all.

                                          I think this would be very interesting to find out
