As most of you will know, the UK government operates an e-petition website on the basis that any petition achieving 100,000 signatures or more must be passed forward for parliamentary discussion. The govt has repeatedly rejected an e-petition calling for discussion of a no-confidence motion in the current coalition government.
This government has repeatedly shown itself unfit to govern - sleaze,an all-out attack on the NHS and the public sector generally, inappropriate interactions with powerful media & corporate interests, opposing Freedom of Information requests and not least mismanagement of the UK economy, among many other issues.
If you wish to communicate to the government that it does not have the support or mandate of the UK people for its actions, please sign the petition below - and publicise it to your friends via Twitter, Facebook and any other means. The government may not listen, but the more people sign, the harder it will be for it to ignore!
People all over the world are interested in Deptford's maritime history. The proposals for Henry VIII's royal dockyard and the site of John Evelyn's Sayes Court manor house and garden in Deptford must be fought with all the spirit and tenacity that historically characterizes the site that launched ships for the battle of the Spanish Armada, launched countless voyages of discovery of Drake, Frobisher, Cook, Vancouver, and set out ships for Nelson’s battles including Trafalgar.
By signing the petition you register that you are dissatisfied by the current development proposals for Convoy's Wharf by Hutchison Whampoa and News International.
The petition is a tool to measure local, national and international feeling about these development proposals. It is still necessary to write to Lewisham with your response to the developer's proposals.
Although every one has the right to express anything anywhere, there should be some control over opinions and informations labelled as news.
Whoever, using their access to unlimited resources as money, influence or power, such as Corporations, Political groups, Governmental institutions, Powerful lobbies, Defense, Energy and Military industries, Religious groups, Sectarian associations, Extremists of both left and right.
These groups of influence create a huge distortion over the perception that societies have of reality, and using elaborate techniques supported by unlimited resources modify, alter, deceit, hide or simply deny acces to the news. Being nowadays the main source of information to the general public (reading now is not a trend) the media has become the weapon and the way to spread both great education (documentaries, news, art) and the lack of it (hate, violence, extremism, war) or ignorance.
Is then, when not used appropriately, that media can become the real big brother, preventing whole groups of society to gain access to unbiased or unaltered information and education.
