  1. Give Britain's animators a tax credit to stop our favourite characters being animated abroad

    In terms of quality, humour and inventiveness, the British animation industry is second to none. Past success in this field has been such that characters like Aardman’s Wallace and Gromit have become part of our national heritage. They are also adored worldwide, acting as ambassadors that embody the spirit of our nation.

    But many of our family favourites have moved abroad to be animated by foreign production companies.

    Now nearly every nation in the world with an animation industry is offering government-backed incentives to attract animation work.

    Put simply, there is no level playing field. Price and product have become…

    • Manchester Central Library is pulping hundreds of thousands of books due to a shelving mistakeelection, due to a miscalculation of shelving.

      Manchester Central Library has been closed for a while for refurbishment. What people are not aware of is that senior management at the library seriously miscalculated the shelf space needed to house the reference books when the library is re-opened in 2013.

      At this very moment library staff are engaged in a continuing process of segregating for destruction a large proportion of the very thing that makes Manchester Central Library unique amongst British public libraries – its extensive and historic reference stock. It is probable that up to half the reference and lending non-fiction stock (up to half a million…

      • SAVE CORK STREET

        Standard Life are putting part of their extensive property portfolio on Cork Street up for sale. This would destroy 7 art galleries including The Mayor Gallery which was the first gallery on Cork Street in 1925. Selling this huge development would destroy almost 90 years of history. Cork Street is renowned throughout the world as an art collectors paradise and clients come from around the world to come and see, and buy art there. Students come from around the UK to study there and its location to the Royal Academy make it a convenient and very central place for them…

        • Save the BBC World Service, stop the cuts

          Please help fight to save the World Service as you did with 6music. It is by far the most important public information network available around the world, and the only one that prides itself on filtering through unbiased and uncensored information to its listeners. It's possibly the only new service available that has the most direct means of saving peoples' lives and that affects their welfare.

          • Stop David Cameron from initiating internet censorship under the pretense of child porn filters

            David Cameron intends to enforce "Filters" on every internet connection in the UK, under the pretence that this will stop the distribution of Child porn. This is a thinly disguised attempt to install a censorship mechanism in the UK

            • Don't allow Ofcom to disenfranchise 75% of Londoners by not enabling them to view the new London TV channel being licensed this year.

              Ofcom will be licencing 20 new local TV channels this year. The idea is to promote local democracy and greater engagement by ordinary people in our communities.

              The biggest one will be for London, but the regulator Ofcom is planning to licence it only on a very limited Freeview signal, that will cover just 60% of London, missing out much of northwest and south London. Worse still, only 40% of people use Freeview to get TV, so only a minority of even those covered by the Freeview signal would actually be able to view the London channel. In other words,…

              • Support Julian Assange

                Julian Assange and his campaign for true freedom of press needs more people to speak up in support. I am very surprised 38 degrees does not already run such a campaign. This is above politics, it is bigger than the UK (although the UK has taken a prime role in helping the US), it is extremely important, and if nobody stands up now it sets a terrible precedent.

                • The Right to Watch Football without Giving Money to the Company behind the NotW Phone Hacking

                  Premiership football is one of the most popular television attractions in the United Kingdom and yet, for far too long, predominantly available to watch only on Sky. This in itself should have been investigated by the Office of Fair Trading. However, in the light of the appalling actions of News International in relation to the phone hacking scandal, this has now taken on an ethical dimension. As commentators have already noted, Rupert Murdoch has closed the News of the World in a cynical attempt to divest himself of a toxic asset in order to control 100% BSkyB. However, he already…

                  • Individuals or companies with a controlling interest in Newspapers should be tax resident in the UK.

                    Newspapers play a huge role in influencing public attitudes and government policy. A significant number of major titles are owned and/or controlled by individuals and companies that are either foreign nationals or are resident for tax purposes outside the UK. The vital role that newspapers have can be undermined by the business interests of these owners, while they enjoy the benefits of be domicied elswhere. As an example, we can look at the the press attention given to members of the House of Lords who were non-doms. These same papers carry significantly more influence than individual members of parliament, yet…

                    • UK Government is trying to remove automatic right of ownership to photographers breaching basic international human right of ownership

                      Currently every photograph taken no matter who you are is automatically owned by the photographer. The British government is in the process of removing this right allowing anyone or any corporation to exploit such images with no permission or even awareness of the owner. This will cause serious damage to the UK's creative industries and will harm our international reputation as a creative nation. It's also in breach of a common international human right.

                      • Spending 1% of public funds on the Arts

                        Independent research has shown that the cultural sector brings in many times more income than is currently spent on it - West End theatre alone pays back 150% to the nation in VAT what the whole of England and Wales receive from the Arts Council. Entertainment unions (Equity, BECTU, MU, NUJ, etc) are calling for just 1% of national expenditure to be spent on the Arts (current spending is less than 0.1%) to boost activity from both within the UK and from overseas visitors.

                          "...the BBC pay £10m a year to be transmitted on the Sky platform, although across the rest of Europe commercial broadcasters pay public broadcasters for the privilege of using their content. By rights Sky should pay many hundreds of millions. If the BBC withdrew, Sky would totter since BBC channels are by far the most watched by Sky subscribers, yet Sky charges an average £500 per customer, compared with the BBC's £145.50 licence fee –and yet the BBC massively outproduces Sky content. It's time Sky paid full value."

It will them to view any website accessed by a person or group.

                              • Jedward

                                The BBC have apparently commissioned a new television series which will be hosted by Jedward.

                                As a TV license payer I find this news hugely dismaying. Unless the series is entitled ‘1001 Ways to torture Jedward to within an inch of their pointless existence’, I don’t want my cash ending up in their pockets.

                                I suggest a petition to the BBC to stop this idea dead in it's tracks. Or we all write to the BBC directly explaining why we won't be paying our License Fee next year.

                                    I am concerned about Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp buying the remaining 61% shares in BSkyB. Not only will this deal increase his already considerable stranglehold on the UK news media, but also, in light of the phone hacking revelations, sends out a clear message: if you are rich and powerful and an ally of the Conservative Party then the law is there to protect your interests, not hold you to account. News International, a subsidiary of News Corp, have admitted liability for phone hacking that extends far beyond their initial cover story and are currently being investigated by Scotland Yard…

                                    • Jeremy Hunt’s judgement regarding the Murdock BSkyB proposed takeover

                                      Following Vince Cable’s ill advised comments to undercover reporters, the final decision regarding News Corp’s proposed takeover of BSkyB now lies in the hands of Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt. The reason Cable lost this power was due to the impartiality of his comments, describing his ‘war on Murdock’. However, his replacement Hunt, has views on the opposite end of the spectrum: “we should recognise is that he has probably done more to create variety and choice in British TV than any other single person” (http://bit.ly/3bdXa7). This places the 38 Degrees campaign in a worse situation than previously, and…

                                      • sexually obsessed Media

                                        I feel the media has become overly sexualized. These images subtly feed into your subconscious, and nowadays even more worryingly, from a very young age. The media is responsible for provide false promises of a better, more fulfilled life, of money and plentiful sex.

                                        • Stop Sky Sports getting the broadcasting rights to F1 Motorsport

                                          I heard that Sky Sports had gained the rights over this weekend, & I think that in the light of News International's recent exposure, & the obvious hostility to Mr. Murdoch's brands it inspired, that this will do serious damage to the sport.
