  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…

    • 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.

      • EU Referendum

        It cannot be right that 16 and 17 year olds whose life will be greatly affected by the outcome of the referendum will not be allowed to vote whereas the elderly who are least affected will be voting.

        • 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…

          • 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.

              • Fairness over political party air time at elections

                Ofcom has just announced it is giving UKIP "major party" status in the run up to the 2014 elections. Green party members are particularly upset about this, but the real question is who sets the rules and what are they? At the moment there seem to be none. Ofcom makes up a new set of criteria just before each election, when it can see which way the polls are running. The result is different rules for every election. There should be a set formula which applies all the time, be it number of MPs, councillors, or MEPs or number of…

                • Queen order all Parliament and political Parties to disband and reform under different Names with new goals and policies?

                  It's 2015....I hate the thought of ever voting for any party I feel has lost touch with what is actually going on here. I also hate the thought of having to choose the closest fit to my views. I think that many of the Parties are out of date. I think we should Ask Our people, door to door if needed, what they think needs to be done in each country to fix it, then act on the most common expression, opinion given from all of the statements given. Could the Queen order all Parliament and political Parties to disband…

                  • 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…

                    • 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.

                          It's the huge elephant in the room. Ignored by both politicians and generally society at large. We need to stop turning a blind eye to it. Children have no voice. Children are our future. Children are being preyed upon by members of Parliament the judiciary the police social services and royalty.
                          There is no way that if you work within the Commons or House of Lords that you haven't heard the rumours of fellow colleagues. It's time Parliament dealt with this head on and confront its dark secrets.

                          • Refounding Democracy

                            There are some really good moves going on at the moment to force Westminster to be democratic. To allow us to call bi-elections when we don't trust our MP for example. However if we are successful we actually won't have achieved anything. The people who actually control what affects us at the household and street and town level are the civil servants.

                            This week a leak from Whitehall revealed that, entirely as Yes Minister! once showed us, the department heads are recruited specifically to resist minster intervention in policy! There is no accountability here and with MP's only lasting 5…

                              Please e-mail your MP and tell them that it is not acceptable for HMRC to have their sticky hands in our bank accounts for any reason whatsoever! Once this sort of power is invested in to the hands of civil servants they will find any reason they can to use it and to increase their powers. We've seen it so many times with Health & Safety for example! NO FINGERS IN OUR PIGGY BANKS HMRC!

                                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.

                                  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.

                                  • 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…

                                      • 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…

                                        • Make "Gagging Orders" illegal in the public Sector.

                                          Gagging Orders are detrimental to the public.

                                          We, the public have a right to know what is going on within a 'business' if it deals with any sector of the public. Take the recent case (even though it happened in 2010) of the head of media and public affairs for the Care Quality Commission, Roger Davidson. He lost his job because he revealed the NHS had failed to meet basic hygiene standards. Link- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/10137029/Speaking-out-cost-NHS-whistleblower-his-job.html

                                          The disclosure is the latest blow to the CQC. It comes after former managers, including Cynthia Bower, the chief executive, were accused of orchestrating a “cover-up”.…
