  1. fairness, justice and equality for all British state pensioners

    All people contribute towards the National Insurance scheme under exactly the same rules.

    All people qualify for their state pension under exactly the same rules, based on years of NI contributions.

    When it comes time to pay the state pension different rules are applied depending on where you happen to live.

    If you live in the UK and in 40 overseas countries, your state pension is uprated for inflation each year.

    If you live in mainly Commonwealth countries your state pension is frozen at the rate at which it is first paid, or as at the date of migration. This…

    • A campaign to stop the abolition of Disability Living Allowance - the measure of civilised society.

      DLA is by the DWP's own admission at least 20% under claimed and maybe as much as 40%. It is subject to a misinformation campaign by the Condems and their allies in the gutter press. Its abolition and replacement is nothing but a cost cutting exercise by the Condems and will cause huge suffering to disabled people and their carers. The abolition for DLA for those in care homes is positively cruel and should be opposed by everyone with a social conscience.

      • Resist the Criminalisation of Squatting

        On 13th of July 2011, the government published a consultation paper:"Options
        for dealing with Squatting". The consultation period ends on 5th October
        2011 so we need to act NOW to be heard.

        The proposals outlined would affect a much wider community than those who
        identify as squatters;

        - tenants would be at risk from unscrupulous landlords,

        - worker and student occupations would be illegal, as would peace and climate camps.

        - Police discretion is considered as a way of determining who is or is not a squatter

        - violent and forcible eviction of squatters would be legal

        - Anyone who…

        • The coalition "are considering" assessing children in their DLA shake up.

          In the DLA reform white paper they are "considering" reassessing disabled children, as well as adults. Not only do they want to cut the benefits bill by chucking of disabled adults they want to do the same to children. They have also sneeked in an item on carers allowance "they are looking at it" ie going to means test or abolish. In this proposal you also have the right to "ask" for an appeal. Not saying you will get an appeal, but you have the right to ask for one. Picking on the disabled and vulnerable is discusting.

            We’re looking into a technical problem with the suggest a campaigns system.

            Last night we merged this with another DLA campaign after being asked to by the people who had originally created the suggestions. This follows on from previous problems we had with merging campaigns.

            Unfortunately last night there was a problem with the system and when we merged the campaigns thousands of votes were removed from the total.

            I’m really sorry this happened. We’re looking into this and trying to sort it out.

          • Adverse effect on access to homoeopathic medicines due to the simplification of The Medicines Act 1968

            The Medicines Act 1968 is being simplified, which is a good thing because a lot of duplication is being removed. However, as a result, there are some important elements which could adversely affect your access to homeopathic medicines if the proposals come into force.

            What will happen to my access to homeopathic medicines?

            If the current proposals by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are endorsed by the Government the following would occur:

            * You would no longer able to get homeopathic medicines by phone or online To get any unlicensed homeopathic medicine a face-to-face consultation would be…

            • 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…

              • An amendment to the Bail Bill that will help prevent domestic violence murders

                1 woman is murdered by a current or ex-partner in the uk every 3days. Last year Jane Clough was murdered by her ex - Vass who was on bail for 6 counts of rape, 3 assaults and 1 sexual assault. Despite objections by the Police and CPS. There is a petition that has been through the first stage and now needs signatures to support an amendment to the Bail allowing bail decisions to be appealled. Jane Clough and many other victims would be alive today if her (their) killer had not been granted bail.

                  • Protect Mobility Allowance for disabled adults from the coalition Government's cuts

                    One reduction included in the coalition Government's budget cuts last week was the removal of the mobility allowance part of Disability Living Allowance for adult disabled people living in residential care.

                    Without mobility payments, getting out of the house for even simple things like going to the library or GP will be impossible for some disabled people, and their quality of life will be severly affected, in exchange for a relatively tiny sum of money being saved.

                    This is part of the Chancellor's proposed budget cuts and is not yet law. So there is still time to try and make…

                    • ban on throwing away food at shops

                      I was at tesco express earlier. It was about 10.30pm, the shop closed at 11pm. there were bags and bags of baked goods being thrown away. They hadn't even been reduced. Why can't this food be given to local homeless shelters? Or even sold at very low costs, the money being donated to charities that help feed starving third world countries? The entire idea of throwing out perfectly good food is completely preposterous.

                      • BEDROOM TAX

                        The House of Lords last night through out the bedroom tax legislation, leaving the Government to destroy peoples' lives who live in council or Social Landlord properties when the Tenant has one or more extra bedrooms!

                        I, like many other Tenants have lived in their homes for tens of years. Myself inparticular, have lived in my home for 45 years, from the age of 2. Bercause I have extra bedrooms, I will be expected to pay for each unoccupied bedroom, ultimately forcing me into serious debt with the Housing Benefits department, ultimately, having no choice but to leave my home!

                        • Transparancy in the Welfare System for the Sick.

                          Campaign to force the DWP (department of work and pensions) to release the software (LIMA) used by ATOS at benefit assessments for incapacity benefit, and ESA (employment and support allowance).

                          This software is owned by the DWP, and the DWP gets royalties when other companies use it.

                          Despite heavy critisicm of both the software, and the system in general, from many parties, the sick are routinely being denied benefits due to incorrect assessments.

                          We believe the software is not fit for purpose, and if it was made available to the public, for inspection, then it could be proved to be…

                            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…

                                The Government wants to oblige the unemployed to work for free in the communities while cutting services. It is outrageous that the unemployed should supply services for free, it amounts to a modern form of 'slavery'. We need to speak loud against this proposal and we need to demand that community services are not scrapped and that they are properly resourced!

                                  • Universal State Pension

                                    Proposed State Pension changes to a 'universal' State Pension for NEW PENSIONERS ONLY is discriminatory and will create a two tier system for existing pensioners who have not only paid NI contributions but may have paid in to a private/occupational pension as well. This will discriminate on age grounds and surely cannot be acceptable under Equal Rights legislation. It will widen the gap between the UK State Pension and that of other EU countries - surely this cannot be acceptable under EU legislation.

                                    • Ban Smoking In Cars Carrying Children

                                      Research suggested more than 300,000 children visited doctors every year with health problems associated with passive smoke, while there were 20,000 new cases of asthma and wheezing among children every year. Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of passive smoking and while adults can make up their mind about the dangers of smoking, children are unable to decide whether or not to go in cars where cigarette smoke is circulating. We need to protect children.

                                      • an independent inquiry into Help 4 Heroes, to show how the money raised is used, and how much the directors of H4H pay themselves

                                        for the inquiry to seek answer for the following

                                        1. Help for Heroes does not represent all veterans and is reported to ignore those suffering from injuries prior to 2001 or 9/11.

                                        2. Staff are paid outlandishly high salaries.

                                        3. People do not know where there money is going and would like to see more clarity.

                                        4. Using a helicopter to attend meetings.

                                        5. Help for Heroes only cater for serving members of HM Forces and not veterans.

                                        6. The full agenda or business program showing all costs is not published. (I must say I’m not sure about this as…

                                        • Unfair and discriminatory changes to Womens' pensions. Pension postponed 6 years because I'm 56!

                                          The Goverment is proposing to change Womens' pension eligibility. If you fall into the age group 56 or younger your entitlement to a State Pension will be postponed for many years. I am 56 and I will have to wait another 6 years for mine! These changes have been imposed without giving women enough time to plan to work for another six years...he proposals for men are not nearly so draconian!
