    • Illegal Government in the UK

      I would like to suggest a petition that the UK has an illegal government, due to the fact that the Liberal-Democrats didn't put the vote back to the people when it came to the alliance with the Conservatives.

      • Should it cost £10000 to run for Mayor of London

        Dave Dobbs feels, like many others, that the cost of £10000 to run for Mayor of London is simply to exclude the general public from the democratic processs. It is only open to corporations and wealthy people. The Mayor campaign should be made open to all and enable a platform of healthy debate and not just wealthy control of our democratic process.

        • Stop bankers ruling Britain

          Is it just a coincidence that 50% of Tory party donations come from bankers and that David Cameron has just traded off the interests of British people in Europe to protect his friends in the City?

          Of course not. Read this excellent article to see how bankers are sponging off the state and controlling our politicians.

          http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2011/dec/12/britain-ruled-by-banks?commentpage=last#end-of-comments

          This is corrupt and it is depriving us of true democracy.

          Let's campaign to:

          - raise public awareness of the collussion and corruption of the Conservative party in taking thismoney ad doing the bankers bidding

          - demand an end to ALL donations to…

          • Any politician or lord that has a serious criminal record or commits a serious offence should be removed from lords or commons!

            Get a committee of members of the public to decide who goes and who stays! Not other politicians or lords!!??

              • Protect tax relief on pension contributions

                Any move to reduce tax relief on pensions is unfair and is contrary to various Government promises to create a stable environment in which people can plan properly for their retirement and ensure that they can support themselves rather than relying upon the state.

                Tax relief at the higher rate is not unfair. It encourages people to save. The tax will be paid when the pension is paid out.

                • Campaign against Lloyds banking group's abandonment of their pet insurance

                  I would like to propose a campaign against the Lloyds banking group. Their shameful abandonemnt of pet insurance piolicies which were taken out in good faith by pet owners has left many with appalling decisons to make about ongoing vets fees. Lloyds are a publically owned company, it is OK for them to throw around huge bonuses to investment bankers but not to honor their commitment made to those who have helped to save the company. I hope that we can pressure them into reversing this shameful policy and offering contiuning support for existing policy holders.

                    with real democracy. I mean full Proportional Representation, no Party Whips, the lot. No real power of course, but if done right it would show what ought to be going on in politics.

                    My POV is not an activist one, but I took part in the AV fiasco because I suddenly realised we don't have democracy, and they were dying in the streets of Cairo at the time, so I thought the least I can do is hand out a few leaflets. My conclusion afterwards was most people haven't a clue how they're are so short-changed by the system and…

                    • Campaign to get independents elected at next elections

                      Ok so we dont have a democratic government but we do still have a democratic voting system. What about a campaign to provide people with support to run as independents at next elections? We could provide packs (leaflet templates, poster templates, guides to use new media including Facebook & Twitter etc).

                      Why are we running: To provide a real opposition against a political system that currently produces politicians (on all 3 main parties) who serve private business before the public. We would be promoting more transparency, real fairness and stand up for the people who voted for us.

                      • Getting Ken Livingstone to pay his tax.

                        Ken Livingstone is running for Mayor of London, and supports UK Uncut, but he is avoiding tax himself. Ed Miliband has spoken up to defend his tax arrangements, but he shouldn't allow himself to be even suspected of following the practices he denounces.
                        I have already created an online petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/pay-your-tax-ken-livingstone/

                        • stop the anti-democratic attempt to entrench the tories in power for the 21st century as the were for most of the 20C

                          The Guardian ran an article on this cataloging the effects of various changes the conservatives are making to our electoral our system.
                          1) Changing the system of voter registration. Making it likely that the young, less well off voters will drop off the register
                          2) Abolishing the ability of Scotish MPs to vote on "English" only matters
                          3 The constituency boundary review with reduction in number of MPs will play into conservative hands
                          4) five year parliaments will allow time for these changes to take effect.

                          The net result will make it far harder for the conservatives to be defeated…

                          • Lobby Lib Dems, at every Level of the Party, to Pass a Vote of No Confidence in Nick Clegg

                            Nick Clegg has betrayed nearly every core principle of the Liberal Democrat 2010 manifesto in exchange for a government role and influence within the Coalition. The only way for the Lib Dems to remain a viable political party is to pass a vote of ‘no confidence’ in Nick Clegg and vote for a new leader who will, at most, support Cameron on a supply and demand basis. Currently polling at 10% and facing disproportionate losses from the Tory plans to count the number of registered voters, rather than the number of constituents, the Lib Dems must prove that they believe…

                                A public register of members of the masons (and so called 'societies with secrets') to give a statistical overview of this unwanted cultural infection.

                                If a register was required by law which included a list of all members (including their job title and current employer) for every single local lodge in the UK, we would very quickly be able to see the level of corruption spreading through our NHS, Education and government.

                                We are being infected by a sinister 'business' mentality which is infecting and changing everything we hold dear - behind our very backs, while we are hypnotised by…

                                  Scotish Indepance will effect everyone in the UK so why is it only the Scotts who get a say?
                                  Money paid as tax in England and Wales goes to pay for services in Scotland, just as tax paid in Scotland goes to pay England and Wales services, so if Scotland gains indepance we all may be better off but we may all be worse off but no one outside Scotland is being given any information.
                                  We should lobby government to allow everyone in the UK to be given the information and have a vote before one state is allowed to…

                                  • Campaign for another General Election.

                                    Fight for another Election. This coalition is an unelected back-door deal between the Tories and The Liberal Democrats.

                                        • Require a Referendum before war may be declared.

                                          We have been conned so many times before; only to find that we are once again at war, millions have been killed or displaced, vast areas of infrastructure decimated, the quality of life for many millions more has been savagely bombed back to a stone-age equivalent, and we will be paying the bills for years to come.

                                          We cannot trust politicians to make decisions of this magnitude!
