  1. Reform of UK Financial Services Regulation to protect savings.

    We're all told to save for our old age, but where can we safely keep our savings? Only a small percentage of what is needed is currently protected and the rest is at the mercy of the markets, akin to put it in a casino.

    This campaign is not about helping wealthy investors, speculating on the stock exchange or taking risks to bolster their existing riches. It is about ordinary people with limited means who may be reaching old age having scrimped throughout their working lives to put a little away to help them survive when they can no longer…

    • Security of Tenure for Renters of Private Property

      • enforcement of minumum wage

        The illegal practice of paying less than the statutory minimum wage is becoming more wide-spread because employers are aware that at present the probability of a prosecution is almost vanishingly small. We need to campaign on behalf of these vulnerable people, who cannot campaign for themselves
        The government needs to employ enough people to inspect and enforce the law on minumum wage.
        In July 8 2014 the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) published a report on low-skilled migration. [see https://www.gov.uk/government/news/migration-advisory-committee-mac-publishes-report-on-low-skilled-migration ]. In it, referring to vulnerable low paid workers, Professor Sir David Metcalf CBE said, "There is incomplete compliance with and…

                Dear Prime Minister The RT. Hon. David Cameron, MP.

                I refer to the Pension Reality Check.

                • 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.

                          • Abolish the bedroom tax

                            The bedroom tax is affecting more and more people as they fall into rent arrears or are forced to move. It is inhuman in its inflexible application. One example: a family with 3 children under ten, the youngest of whom is blind and needs his own room have been told they only qualify for 2 bedrooms. It is the bankers and the better off who should be helping fix the deficit, not the poorest.

                            • Improving the testing, diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease in line with current research not biased American guidelines

                              Lyme disease is frequently misdiagnosed, in the early stages as flu, cellulitis, rash, fevers; in the late stages as chronic fatigue syndrome (ME), fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease (ALS), lupus, glandular fever etc. Despite many of these latter syndromes having no diagnostic test or treatment, a diagnosis is made due to the lyme test being negative in many cases. Yet a paper by the former head of the lyme borreliosis unit showed 14% of screening tests do not pick up a borrelia infection (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21117376 ), without a positive screening test the NHS will not pursue further testing or…

                                The new assessment based scheme is excluding many previous holders as Councils strictly interpret Department for Transport guidelines. The Councils then claim they are only doing what they are told by the DfT. Start charging for all disabled parking (it does not need to be free) and give back badges to people who are now denied them simply because they can walk 80 metres. The assessment rules if you can walk 80 metres the you do not need a blue badge!!!!!!

                                • Demanding legislation to end discrimination of privately renting tenants due to benefits

                                  Landlords and letting agents need to be legislated so that discrimination of people in receipt of benefits is brought to an end. People in receipt of full or part housing benefit should not be demonised and should be allowed the same opportunities to find a home as anyone else. This affects the disabled, carers, parents and carers of disabled children, lone parents, students, asylum seekers and refugees.
                                  At the moment, income is not a protected characteristic under the Equality Act and I propose that this urgently needs to change

                                  • Better rights for people in private rented houseing.

                                    via facebook i have seen campaign by shelter, re private rented houseing. this campaign is regarding the situation were a tenant raised an issues with the landlord:ie damp, leaks or rapairs required .
                                    the tenant then receives a notice to quit.
                                    This happened to a couple i know.

                                    As i see it the whole private rental market is in need of a whole review, regarding this and other issues.

                                      • Increasing state pensions so that our olderpeople, who have worked all their lives, are no longer the worst paid in Europe and beyond.

                                        Basically, increasing state pensions, so that older people in our country aren't so poorly paid. Respect? At first pensions can be based on average incomes as they were before Thatcher changed it to make them lower.

                                          Tieing the amount at which you start to pay income tax to the minimum wage. It seems absurd that someone earning minimum wage still has to pay tax. As I understand it the average person on minimum wage is still only earning £15,000 a year, yet they start paying tax on less than £11,000.
