There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Legalise same-sex marriages in the UK.

    I believe that no people should be discriminated against for who they are and, therefore, gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to religiously solidify their relationship as well as hetrosexual couples.

    • Roger Hayes, Chairman of the British Constitution Group, secretly arrested and tried for exercising his Democratic Rights!

      It has come to my notice that, on the morning of Monday 2nd July 2012, Roger Hayes, Chairman of the BGC, was arrested and tried in secret simply for exercising his democratic rights!
      Although I have no direct affiliation with the group, I consider this an extremely worrying turn of events which has seriously implications for us all as we try to make a positive contribution to the world by opposing injustice and unfairness.
      This is the link that I read: http://www.ukcolumn.org/article/roger-hayes-arrested-tried-secret-court-imprisoned. I urge you to click on this link for further information and to take the action suggested…

          • Please help defeat Terasa May's intention to block foreign nationals entering the UK unless you have £20k or more.

            My name is Bob Swan, I am married to a US citizen who does not have Leave to Remain at present, and under Terasa May's proposed changes my wife will not be allowed entry to the UK, as I am on Disability Living Allowance, and as such below the £20k set by Ms May. We do not want to rely on the state for benefits, and whilst she has been here I have managed to support us on my benefits alone, it has not been easy. We have right to family life, and under these new proposals, our rights will…

            • The new proposed immigration rules that will require spouses to earn £25,700 or more a year before they can bring in spouses.

              JCWI has already built up a dossier of case studies. I would suggest building this up, to include, if at all possible, several conservative voters. Also targeting lib dems who must surely be opposed to this measure as a restriction of family rights. But 38 degrees are the experts in campaigning - the more ideas, the better.

              • Save trial by jury

                Trial by jury is "the lamp that shows that freedome lives". Every few years civil servants in the Home Office persuade politicians to have another go at it. Why? The stated reason is always cost, but it is never stated truly. The actual saving for removing the right to elect jury trial is insignificant. The real reason is that tyrants don't like juries. And civil servants and politicians always have an element of tyranny in their body corporate. The arguments for and against are as old as the hills. This quote from Lord Blackstone writing in the 1760s is as…

                    This detached organisation run by out of touch hasbeen judges and lawyers has no right to over rule British Law. We need to make a standard against this unelected bunch.

                      • Reform the secret family law courts and social services..see fassit or forced adoption

                        Loads of children are being taken into care under the term 'emotional
                        abuse'. They have had my children for nearly two years. Social services, the cafcass officer lie in court. The judges who must clearly know what they are saying is untrue,along with the solicitor side with them. Then go on to say that this is in the best interest of the child. It is gross child abuse. If it wasn't happening to my family would find it hard to believe.

                        • Restrict sale of sulphuric acid

                          Sulphuric acid can still be purchased on Ebay. It is supposedly a drain unblocker, instead it is sometimes being used as a weapon. The consequences of an attack far out weigh the need for this product to be freely available. Restrict its sale, as they do in the USA.

                            I urge you to take up the issue of the "rubbish" added to childrens medicines.
                            My son was recently given antibiotics and the colour alone (flourescent orange) gave cause for alarm, it looked like Rocket Fuel!!
                            When i read and googled the ingredients they were full of Enumbers, colours, flavourings and other ingredients that when googled read....
                            - Should not be given to children!
                            - Causes tumours in Kidneys iun children!
                            - Saccharin, which we all know to be cancerous and cause alzheimers later in life.
                            And more alarming revelations.

                            THe same goes for Calpol and Neurofen in childrens suspensions.

                                Saudi Arabia has yet to enter female participants for this year's Olympics in London - though it claims to be engaged in meaningful discussions about this. However, in light of the fact that South Africa has been banned in the past for failing to have black athletes on its Olympic team and for apartheid, it seems hypocritical of the organisers of this year's games not to ban Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Brunei for the same reasons. Saudi Arabia have no women's section on their Olympics committee, there will be no commitment to entering women for the 2016 games, and girls…

                                      • This time yesterday the Queen dined with the President of Sri Lanka, who stands accused of war crimes in Sri Lanka. It's not the first time

                                        This time yesterday the Queen dined with the President of Sri Lanka, who stands accused of war crimes in Sri Lanka.

                                        It's not the first time that she has had controversial dinner guests. Just two weeks ago, she was joined by the King of Bahrain, whose regime has been accused of brutally suppressing pro-democracy demonstrations and the King of Swaziland who enjoys a lavish lifestyle while his people starve.

                                        I am proud of Britain for standing up and speaking out against dictatorship, war crimes and mass human rights abuses. But when our Foreign Office invites individuals involved in or responsible…

                                        • Increase Sentences For Pedophiles

                                          Human Rights For Children
                                          Too Often pedophiles are getting off on very small sentences. My suggestion would be 10 year minimum for a first offence, (6 years in real terms) and LIFE with out the possibility of release for any second offence. Its always possible that some misscarrages of justice can arise with the first offence, but if convicted for second time, then the protection of children must trump the offenders right to liberty.
