The fabric of Britain as we know it is being ripped apart. So much is changing, almost behind our backs, we haven't got time to notice what is happening to us. And it is happening fast.



Petition to Abolish Work for your Benefit/Workfare Schemes in the UK
Responsible department: Department for Work and Pensions
People selling their labour should be fairly remunerated for their work at the normal level paid for the tasks they perform and treated in the same way as a standard employee with full rights and representation if requested.
These are the basic rights of any worker in a modern democratic society. Workfare is effectively forced labour and is therefore illegal in the UK.

Government to allow and support a Motion of Confidence in David Cameron. Responsible department: Office of the Leader of the House of Commons.
Following the revelations in regard to the Phone Hacking Scandal and Prime Minister David Cameron’s repeated refusal to answer direct questions relating to the appointment of Andy Coulson, we the undersigned no longer have any confidence in the decision making of the Prime Minister. We therefore demand that the Government allow, support and encourage a debate which leads to a Motion of Confidence being undertaken to determine whether the Prime Minister still retains the confidence of the House or whether they believe, as we do, that he should be replaced for the good of the country.

  1. Just been made redundant after 12 years working in the NHS. I now receive tax free redundancy settlement. As a result, UK taxpayers, the Treasury, society, my local community and little old me all lose out. What sense do Osborne's policies make?
