  1. 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.

    • End Manorial Rights

      We are a campaign group, End Manorial Rights, seeking help from 38 Degrees to abolish manorial rights in England and Wales.

      We are a group of residents from Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, who have recently learned that our homes are subject to previously unknown and recently registered “Manorial Rights”. These manorial rights are claims by wealthy landowners over commercial, local-authority-owned and private residential property they do not own and include surface rights (hunting shooting & fishing) and the right to extract minerals underground.
      WHY WE WANT TO CHANGE THE LAW
      These rights are some of the last few remaining ancient…

      • ask andy burnam to scrap medical companies & revert back to the N.H.S. to do medicals

        andy burnam should right a terrible wrong by axing these medical companies that were introduced by labour under tony blair like atos & capita.he should revert back to tests done by the N.H.S.where a more fairer test is done with medical records freely available which is not done so under the present regime it will also create more jobs in the N.H.S.

          • Parliament should change the law on assisted suicide.

            The Law Lords today say it's for Parliament to change the Law on assisted suicide, they should do so and end this cruel and barbaric insistence that a terminally ill person has to endure a painful and undignified end.

              • Wonga. Need for strict regulation and penalties.

                Their recent £2.6 million fine imposed on Wonga by the FCA for malpractice (pretending parts of their operation were non-existent legal firms; highly illegal!) is petty cash for Wonga. The real question is why do they still have a licence to trade with a record of proven malpractice?

                Withdrawing their licence, or altering it with much more restrictive conditions on what they can or cannot do, would seem to be the way forward here. It is what other European countries do with this sort of lender, after all.

                Also the possibility of criminal prosecution needs to be looked into. They…

                  • Condem the BBC for giving Farage more publicity than the other party leaders

                    Please support my campaign in regard to concerns about the coverage given by The BBC to Nigel Farage Leader of UKIP in the run up to The Euro/Local Elecion campaign. Farage does not speak for the interests of the people of this country and he opposes Maternity leave, Raising income tax for the poorest 80% of Britons and scrapping holiday entitlement as well as abolishing your human rights. These are the issues Farage and the BBC failed to mention to people. I want this petition to go to Tony Hall Director General of the BBC and James Harding Director of…

                    • Ensure the Dept of Health sets Health Visitor funding within the ring fenced Public Health budget when the funding transfers from NHS to LA

                      The government has been investing in Health Visitor services, pledging to increase numbers so all women and their babies and toddlers receive a good universal service and hundreds of new Health Visitors have been trained. When Public Health services transferred from the NHS to LAs in 2013 including the commissioning of school nursing services it was with a ring fenced budget protecting these services from Council cut backs. At this time it was planned that funding for Health Visiting would follow and also be commissioned by Public Health in 2015, once the the target for increasing Health Visitors numbers had…

                      • Against compulsory black boxes in cars to monitor vehicle movements.

                        On 18th May 2014, the Daily Telegraph printed an article entitled "Drivers without insurance 'black box' could be forced off the road within 10 years".

                        This article can currently be found at: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/insurance/motorinsurance/10837263/Drivers-without-insurance-black-box-could-be-forced-off-the-road-within-10-years.html

                        I believe that this has the potential to infringe our freedom of movement, and once it is in place, such an infringement is but a short step beyond. I am also against the concept as the information provided by such a system could be used as a means of revenue generation through the automatic issuing of speeding and or parking fines. Then of course there is the…

                        • 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.

                            G4S could not organise the security for mature, responsible adults (the Olympic Games) as well as failing to protect the general public from convicted prisoners at the same time as fraudulently overcharging for non-existent tagging of offenders, therefore how can they be charged with the responsibility for protecting the most innocent and vulnerable who have no voice of their own, let alone any recourse, redress or right of appeal.

                                  • The anti-hunting ban should not be repealed or weakened

                                    The government is being lobbied to relax the anti-hunting ban.

                                    Environment officials are examining what they describe as a "viable amendment" to the Hunting Act, which would allow up to 40 hounds to flush out a fox to face waiting guns rather than two, a move that critics claim would effectively reintroduce hunting with hounds "through the back door".

                                    The proposed amendment would be likely to use a parliamentary device known as a statutory instrument to amend the contentious 2004 act. Opponents of foxhunting predict that the move will be unveiled next month and it is has been claimed that…

                                    • NHS caredata scheme

                                      I only found out about the care.data scheme by accident when a leaflet was delivered with a pile of other junk that usually goes straight in the bin.
                                      This care.data scheme is easily confused with the NHS Summary Care Record, so some people may already think they opted out last year. ( the latter was an internal NHS patient information sharing system that provided patient basic health details for emergency use to other direct health providers ie hospital. The patient could view their own information and provide further details. It never got off the ground and was abandoned last year!)

                                      • Challenging diagnosis of dementia. Currently not funded as a medical condition, but as social care. Entirely a budget-driven diagnosis.

                                        Momentum building from within care sector, for dementia conditions to be re-classified. Currently, dementia care funding is determined by a complex assessment process. If re-classified as a medical condition, similar to strokes/ other cardio-vascular , it would be covered as a medical issue and fully-funded. Probably one of the most explosive current issues in NHS care for this decade.

                                        • STOP HMRC RAIDING PEOPLES BANK ACCOUNTS WITHOUT A COURT ORDER

                                          Innocent people face having money taken straight out of their bank accounts under draconian powers to be used by the taxman.

                                          A Treasury plan to allow HM Revenue and Customs to remove cash from bank accounts without a court order is “very concerning” because of its history of mistakes, a Commons committee said.

                                          In a consultation document this week, HMRC said the "direct recovery" powers could be used to take money from joint accounts.

                                          Treasury committee says that taxpayers could suffer “serious detriment” if officials are able, either by mistake or through an “abuse” of power, to take money from…
