    • Bring back stories, fun and fiction to BBC Radio 4extra please. British Boring Corporation?

      BBC Radio 7 was inspired - tapping the BBC's goldmine legacy of fiction - sci-fi, thrillers, mystery, crime, historical fiction and comedy. A brilliant antidote to tedious and depressing politics, current affairs and endless pseuds corner opinion. Changing its name to 4Extra was a warning that the toffs wanted more mind control over listeners. Last week 90% of the fiction and comedy were slashed for overspill from Radio 4. No more fascinating bedtime stories. No more fun or excitement for restricted listeners in hospitals, prisons, the elderly, or young people and the young at heart. Radio 7/4extra was an antidote…

      • Urging the BBC to give David Lowe his job back.

        I think we should be urging the BBC to give David Lowe his old job back as a DJ within the BBC after he felt forced to resign due to accidentally playing an 82 year old song with a racial slur in it.
        The DJ has apologized for the genuine accident, and should be forgiven.

        • 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

          • Stop the BBC's Excessive spending on the World Cup

            I've just read (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2595844/BBC-taking-272-staff-World-Cup-Brazil-equivalent-25-football-teams-DOUBLE-ITV-workers.html) that the BBC intends to spend £12,000,000 to send 272 people to cover the World Cup. Spread over a year, that's almost £33,000 per day for one event. I think this is an excessive squandering of public money (maybe they're giving each of their staff a £90 England shirt for the trip).

            • Against the demolition of the Iconic art Deco building including the olympic size swimming pool below

              There is already a campaign going but it seems as if they are losing the battle. Earls Court is an Art Deco Iconic venue. It harbours an olympic size swimming pool below the building. Instead of Boris Johnson building more convention centres save this one.

              • Save BBC Three

                The BBC are planning on cutting the channel BBC three from our television and only putting material online. For years BBC three has been a source of new comedy and has helped to kick start the careers of many people who are now household names. Programs such as 'Gavin & Stacy' which helped get James Cordon's career going would have struggled to gain the funding and audience which they deserved without the support of this vital BBC three channel. Can the BBC really justify taking away such a vital tool to our emerging comedy acting and screen writing scene?

                • Paganism to be taught in schools

                  Paganism is one the lesser known but most important religions. It should be taught so people do not get the wrong perspective on life.

                  • Stop press regulation, abandon attempt to set up a Royal Charter, and replace with First Amendment-style press freedom guarantee.

                    Isn't it obvious? The freedom of the press should be absolute. For any regulation to be put in place, and especially for politicians to have any influence over the press is a travesty of freedom.

                    • 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.

                        • Enact legislation to force online movie streaming companies to offer audio description for blind and partially sighted people.

                          The big 3 film streaming companies (netflix, lovefilm and sky) do not offer audio description as part of their service. This is preventing millions of blind and partially sighted people in the UK from watching a film instantly with their families: something most people take for granted.

                                All of our young people are greatly influence by tv and copy people who are famous. Why are the comedians and talk show people encouraging blasphemy (using the Lord Jesus Christ's name as a swear word) and more and more using foul language.
                                Mary Whitehouse kept them to account, because she knew the influence they have on people's standards.

                                  Cameron's censorship law is widely publicised to cover pornography, but it covers far more. It's dangerous. The following things are also blocked:

                                  Fora - that includes social networks. Any kind of free discussion is restricted. (Including 38degrees)

                                  Esoteric material - that's horribly wide, and could cover anything from non-mainstream religious or political information to underground journalism or, hell, why not just go for anything critical of the government too (including 38degrees)?

                                  Eating disorder websites - if you have a disorder like anorexia and want to google for help, tough; you can't.

                                  Suicide-related websites - potentially even worse.

                                  It's also worth…

                                  • Support freedom of the media to report the Snowden leaks

                                    A D notice has been issued 'requesting' UK media to keep silent about the fact that the government is reading the private communications of millions of innocent people. Intelligence officials have entered the premises of the Guardian newspaper and destroyed hard drives. This is serious - if the media cannot report illegal government behaviour then we are in very deep trouble as a society.

                                    • Excess agency charges for event & theatre tickets. Have unknowingly just paid £80 each for £67 tickets

                                      There should be a legal maximum that any agency may charge. The present situation is a con-man's charter, & the public are being exploited.
                                      I believe that this has been considered by the government, who could not see any votes in it. We have to prove them wrong (again)

                                      • Fight the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act

                                        I felt that this message should be made available to all photographers and artists (so please forward this on).
                                        If this gets passed then you will lose ALL rights to your pictures as it will not take much for an unscrupulous individual or company to remove your meta data and start making money from YOUR images and you will not get a thing as it will be classed as an orphan image.

                                        We need the help of photography magazines and a possible petition to stop us losing our rights - even David Bailey is outraged!

                                        Many pro photographers and amateurs…

                                          BBC is out of date, bias and corrupt. Another government organisation full of non jobs.
