    • Stop the change of commissioning of dialysis and chemotherapy care and the downgrade to non specialised services.

      There is a process taking place of changing the commissioning of dialysis from NHS England to GPs (CCGs). Dialysis would no longer come under the banner of specialised care and would become non-prescribeable. GPs are not experts in this field.
      I do not believe these changes are in the interests of patients but rather they appear to be further fragmentation and watering down of important services to make eventual bidding for these services easier.

      • Support the people on the frontline fighting crime in our communities the police officers that the government leave stranded!!

        The police force is continually given bad press or blamed for every problem that comunities face these days. My campaign is actually not about the police force but actually about fighting for the people that continually put their lives on the frontline to help the fight against crime. The people that the government has left stranded as they continously cut costs leaving forces with unsafe numbers to fight crime and therefore putting people's safety at risk everytime they go to work.

        A government that spends ridiculous amounts on police commissioners that do nothing but get paid £100k per year.

        A…

        • Reverse the State Pension Law

          Give us the same transitional protection that MP's, Judges and Civil Servants were given against the changes to their pension schemes.

          They were given 10 years protection whilst we were given as little as 18 months notice of the changes made to the State Pension.

          Is this fair and equitable?

          • Gary Barlow have his OBE removed

            Jockey Lester Piggott had his OBE removed when he was found guilty of tax evasion. Jimmy Carr was called "morally wrong" for avoiding tax by the Prime Minister. Yet Gary Barlow has neither lost his OBE or been condemned for knowingly avoiding tax on millions of pounds of earnings. The PM says Barlow does a lot of good work for Children in Need - well it's a good job he does, since there are more children in need because of tax avoiders like him than ever before.

            So regardless of whether he's a good bloke or not, we cannot set…

            • MP's PAYE or limited companies?

              I'm curious about how many MP's could be avoiding the higher rate of incombe tax. by registering themselves as Limited Companies. therfor only paying 20% corporation tax instead of the upper rate of incombe tax of 40%. surely as MP's they are employed by the state. and there fore should by default be PAYE. The same rulse should apply to civil servants, but i believe they are playing the same game. It would warrant some investigation at least.

              • Mare Nostrum migrant rescue operation in the Mediterranean

                The hard pressed Italian navy should not be left to deal with hundreds of thousands of migrants in the Mediterranean alone. Our government should reverse its shameful decision to abandon these people to their fate and other European governments should all support this operation or something similar rather than leave desperate people to drown.

                  • 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 -…

                      • Stop HMRC Selling Tax Payer Financial Data

                        The plan for HMRC to sell tax payer financial data has just been announced. I really think we need a Care.data style campaign - which was immediately successful in achieving a significant delay to those plans. There's an article here http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/apr/18/hmrc-to-sell-taxpayers-data. These plans to sell so-called 'anonymised' data are really wrong!

                          • Stop the privatisation of child protection services.

                            The power to take children away from their families could be privatised along with other child protection services under controversial plans the government has quietly announced.

                            The proposal from Michael Gove's Department for Education (DfE) to permit the outsourcing of children's social services in England to companies such as G4S and Serco has alarmed experts. They say profit-making companies should not be in charge of such sensitive family matters, and warn that the introduction of the profit motive into child protection may distort the decision-making process.

                            • Stopping troubled children becoming an investment opportunity

                              Making money out of tragic children is the extreme end of the outsourcing culture. The history of contracting and privatisation has mainly been high cost and high profit for worse service. This 30-year policy has, without evidence, been driven by contempt for the idea of a public ethos, and conviction that private is always best.

                              An 18% return on the most disturbed and needy children in care homes is the extreme end of Britain's outsourcing culture according to a report by Polly Toynbee today.

                              'In the two years between 2010 and 2012 outsourcing to private children’s homes rose 8% to…

                                • STOP THE ILLEGAL IVORY TRADE, SAVE ELEPHANTS, RHINOS and other endangered species

                                  I'd read the other day there was a protest in London outside the Chinese Embassy to put pressure on the Chinese Government to make the ivory trade illegal. Apparently there was 150 people there, if I had know I would have gone too. We need to get more involved and get something done. I'd like to start a petition to get 100,000's on signatures to take to No 10 and the Chinese Embassy to SAVE this graceful creatures from extinction. We need to educate people that the herbal remedies do not work and owning ivory a crime. I don't know…

                                  • Security of Tenure for Renters of Private Property
