Stand Up to Ukip

Stand Up to Ukip launch statementThe 2014 European Elections mark a watershed in British politics. UKIP is a right wing, racist, populist party which won over 27 percent of the vote; a  staggering 4,352,051 people voted for them and they beat the three mainstream parties.Ukip presents itself as an anti-establishment party and its leader, Nigel Farage, claims to be “a man of the people”. This is a lie. Ukip wants to introduce a flat rate of income tax of 31 per cent that means those on th

Search for our Sailors

Four Britons have been reported missing in the mid-Atlantic Ocean while sailing a yacht back to the UK from a regatta. They lost contact in the early hours of Friday 14th May. The search has already been halted, which is far too early as there is a chance they can be in a life raft. Please sign this petition, spread the word and build pressure to have this search put back on and find our sailors.

Acknowledgement for Babies born before 24 weeks

I am fighting for the memory of my son Jacob Jaxon-Lewis Mclean, who was born at 18+3 week gestation on the 24th October 2013 at 9.10 and lived for twenty minutes. I was informed that i get no acknowledgement because he was born before 24 weeks gestation. I never stop fighting for my son, and in the end I was granted a birth and death certificate. A grieving parent should not have to extend their greif and heartbreak even more, in the UK a baby born before 24 weeks subsequently dies within 28 da

Tower Arms Public House

We the undersigned believe the Tower Arms in Weald Road should remain as a Public House in the heart of South Weald. The village would benefit from a well run, community facility at the heart of local life and we would oppose it becoming a residential home. We would also support its inclusion on Brentwood Council's Community Asset register.

Elba Ground rent campaign

Last Saturday morning residents of the Elba housing estate received letters detailing council rises to their ground rent from between £50-£75 up to anything from £250-£3600 amounting to increases of up to 5000%. Surely this is not morally or indeed politically correct at a time where the local labour council has indeed pledged to fight poverty, when indeed they are now creating it and pricing people out of their own homes. I personally witnessed families, elderly and disabled who have worked har

Save Pomegranate Restaurant

After an 18-month sustained campaign of harassment led by a neighbour, Pomegranate Restaurant (located at Antigua Street, Edinburgh) is being forced to remove ALL the lighting and signage from their business. The attached photo shows their "offensive" menu boards and their "eyesore" restaurant frontage. Having to comply with this order will have serious negative repercussions for this extremely popular restaurant. It will, in all likelihood, cost the owners and the many staff that they employ t

Save Tesco Free From Smoothies

  The response from Tesco has been that they are discontinuing the free from smoothies "as part of a range reduction".  We've created this petition to see if we can change their mind so would appreciate as many people signing it as possible. These smoothies are a large source of calcium for those who are CMPA and many parents rely on these to be part of a healthy, balanced diet.

Unknown Warehouse Rave

We have been associated with raving for around ten years now and we have not met a nicer community of people than ravers. True ravers go to raves for the music, not drugs! Most people in the rave scene believe P.L.U.R stands for peace, love, unity, and respect. These are considered the four pillars of the rave scene. Why would you want to stop a sub-culture that endorses love towards all men and women? Why would you want to stop a sub-culture geared towards getting together, dancing together, an

Flooding of Maidenbower/Furnace Green bridleway

This petition is to get the message across to Network Rail to take responsibility for engineering a solution to stop the flooding in the bridleway which links Furnace Green to Maidenbower.  This disruption has become more and more frequent over the past 12 months, since Network rail have carried out other work for the railway line and tunnel extension. Even regular down-pour of rain is causing a massive inconvenience to my fellow pupils of Oriel High school, Maidenbower, local dog walkers and ot
