1. Protect vulnerable British Gas shareholders' profits

There is a crisis brewing in Britain that needs urgent political attention before it’s too late. British Gas's residential business has reported a small drop in profits for 2013 due to warmer weather and higher wholesale energy costs. Adjusted operating profit for the full year came in at £571m, down 6% on the £606m recorded a year earlier.

Owner Centrica also posted a dip in profits, at £2.7bn, down from £2.74bn. The scale of this crisis will be felt by all but particularly the chief executive Sam Laidlaw, who was paid a salary, benefits and cashing of shares to the total of £4.3m.

According to Lenny Henry, who has visited some houses with double garages in Surrey for ‘Shareholders in need’, ‘this footage we already have makes the 80s clips of skinny African kids look like a fucking pool party.’ It includes-

• Second and third houses in Devon and Nice not getting the refurbishment that they so desperately need to be ‘this season’.

• Butlers and nannies will be treated with a slightly more terse tone and then apologised to.

• Equities fund managers will frown more than usual and this may lead to crow’s feet.

• Montessori and Steiner schools will have loads of parents looking a bit glum at the school gates.

• ‘Ways I’m going to optimise my potential today ’ lists on fridge doors all over Surrey will be ignored.

• Children in Sussex and Kent will have to wait a few weeks longer for a horse and they may well go in a huff about it.

• Animals desperate to be shot and mounted in hallways will have to wait a bit longer, or even worse, miss their chance altogether.

• People who sell white trousers with pastel shirts and sweaters that drape over the shoulders will sell a few less.

• The hinges on driveway security gates will squeak because people aren’t getting staff to buy WD40.

If you don’t want any of these things to happen then please act now. Centrica normally pays two dividends to shareholders each year, in June and November.

If we act now we can make sure that the June dividend can start the process of repairs to damaged share portfolios all over London.

3. Motion of No Confidence in the Current ConDem Government

This Petition is to call for the current Condem Government to hold a Confidence Vote also known as a 'Confidence Motion' in the House of Commons and should that motion return as 'no confidence' then a general election be called there after.

I am asking everyone to sign it and send a loud and clear message to the Government that they are not fit to Govern us any longer.

Since they have come to power many people in this nation including myself feel that the Government has done nothing productive to encourage growth in the Economy but instead has pushed through a system of cuts to Public spending some of which seem quite cruel and punitive especially to vulnerable groups such as the poor and the disabled.

We feel that our Government is one that is only interested in the rich and cares not for the poor and with this system of cuts is pushing us deeper and deeper into worse and worse living standards in many cases even starvation for instance it is estimated that half a million Britons will have received food parcels by the year 2016 this is not an acceptable situation for our country and nor is it one we should be in.

It is for these reasons and many others listed in the petition and perhaps many of your own that I am asking you to stand up and make a stand against the UK Government. Please sign the petition and make your voice heard. Do not sit and moan and twiddle your thumbs!! Take action sign and share it with all that you know!!!

Please note the petition is somewhat lengthy to read as I felt it was necessary to make so many points within it..

PLEASE BE SURE TO CONFIRM YOUR SIGNATURE BY EMAIL. THANK YOU!

4. Public Enquiry needed to look into scandal where children's organs have been stolen

In January 2012 a new scandal hit families of dead children. Childrens organs have been stored in hospitals for up to 15 years and now being returned to families.

No family were aware these organs were kept in jars when post mortems were performed and no one seems to know the reason, due to the organs mainly being brains of which cannot be used for organ donation.

This is nothing other than theft, after the Alder Hey scandal in 1999 this practice still seems to be rife and needs to stop, so we the public are demanding a public enquiry into this awful disgusting practice.

5. The Right Honourable D Cameron PM is not fit for public office

This petition is based on a number of my letters that were sent to MP Right Honourable David Cameron PM, which concerned an ever-rising number of unlawful deprivation issues to UK society. These irrefutable shown issues were presented to the current Prime Minister in requesting he uphold his public duty and the acts of UK law on behalf of UK society.

The Prime Minister has been made aware many times not only in these requests but also by an ever-rising many concerned other people of the UK by their lawful requests. Who have the same or similar concerns in the ever-rising deprivation towards UK society that is unlawfully/un-legislatively maliciously causing their unnecessary suffering? Where an unlawful willing malicious blindness to upholding any stated public duty or the upholding of the acts of UK law gives lawful rise to the petitions question

6. Reverse the VAT rise on fuel

Local people in Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch are feeling the brunt of rising fuel prices. Its time for the UK Government to act, and immediately reverse the VAT rise on fuel, and use the Budget to look again at the annual fuel duty rise due in April.

The VAT rise on fuel could be reversed immediately using the extra £800m from the bank levy. At the Budget the Chancellor should look again at the annual fuel duty rise due in April. The last Labour government often postponed planned duty increases when world oil prices were on the up - as they are now.

Of course over the longer term we need to encourage greater use of public transport and fuel efficient cars. But with the price of a litre of unleaded petrol this week reaching £1.30 George Osborne needs to take immediate action to help hard-pressed families.

7. Change the new Maternity Grant Rules

As of the 11/04/2011 the Sure Start Maternity Grant qualification criteria will change, the biggest change being if there is another child under 16 you will not be allowed the grant.

What do they expect people to do? Keep everything for 16 years just in case? For the Lone Parents claiming benefits how are they supposed to by what a baby needs? Answer: They can't especially with health guidelines regarding cotdeath/sudden infant death syndrome e.g a new cot mattress, moses basket mattress and for safety in the car a new car seat must also be bought. Most other things are safe to be second hand.

8. Save The Red Arrows!

The official name of the Team is the ‘Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team’, commonly known as the ‘Red Arrows’. The Red Arrows are a small part of a large organisation; the Royal Air Force, much of which is engaged in operations overseas defending UK interests and making the world a safer place.

The Red Arrows are the public face of the Royal Air Force and are acknowledged as one of the world’s premier aerobatic teams. Within the UK, the Red Arrows exist to demonstrate the professional excellence of the Royal Air Force and promote recruitment to the Royal Air Force. The Red Arrows have inspired a significant number of people to join the Royal Air Force, both as officers and airmen in all trades, not just pilots!

The Team supports wider British interests overseas by contributing to Defence Diplomacy efforts and promoting British industry. The Hawk aircraft flown by the Team and most of its components are all British made. During international tours the Red Arrows demonstrate both British skill and British technology to millions of people.

The Red Arrows also help more than 500 UK charities every year - contributing many thousands of pounds to a wide variety of important causes.

10. OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT PERVEZ MUSHARRAF - 21 JANUARY 2008

My dear fellow Pakistanis and the world at large,

My country is ruled by a recently retired General who ruled us against our wishes for eight long years of our lives as a serving General and Chief of Staff of the Pakistan Army.

Now in his ninth year of rule he has locked up prominent members of the judiciary including the Chief Justice of the Country ands some other prominent lawyers. His Regime is at war with the people of Pakistan themselves in one form or another.

HE HAS RECENTLY GOT HIS FRAUDULENT ELECTION AS PRESIDENT ENDORSED BY A COMPLIANT JUDICIARY AND HAS SAID ON TV THAT HE WILL RESIGN IF HE GETS TO KNOW THAT HE IS UNPOPULAR WITH THE PEOPLE.

JOIN ME MY COUNTRYMEN AND ALL OTHER FREEDOM LOVING PEOPLE OF THE WORLD IN TELLING THIS DICTATOR HOW VERY UNPOPULAR HE REALLY IS SO THAT WE CAN PUT HIM TO HIS WORDS AND ASK HIM TO RESIGN...THE ATTACHED LETTER IS MY OPEN LETTER TO THE DICTATOR TO RESIGN IN AN HONOURABLE MANNER...we have to all stand up and be counted.

11. Call for a General Election in England and Wales

Since coming to office, Tony Blair’s Labour Party has caused irreparable damage to the British way of life and to our standing in the world community. From crime, to education, the health service, social justice, immigration and foreign policy, we have had plentiful promises but little else.

Despite being constantly bombarded with dubious facts and figures to the contrary, it is most people’s experience that life under Labour has not improved and has in fact got much worse in many key areas. Many people feel completely disenfranchised by a political system driven by spin, half-truths and poorly-conceived legislation. Incompetence, arrogance and complete indifference to the will of the people appear to have replaced our democracy.

The recent example of the ridiculous Olympic logo that has made our country a laughing stock around the world is a classic example, but one could also cite the HIPS fiasco, the cash for honours enquiry and of course the disastrous war in Iraq – an unforgivable act that has left a foul and bloody stain on our national reputation that will take a generation or more to expunge.

The reins of power are about to be handed over to an individual with no democratic mandate, no clear policies, no international experience and a worrying reputation for his totalitarian management style.

Given the woeful track record of the last ten years, and the worrying prospects for the future under Brown, I feel that we, the people of Britain, should be given the opportunity to exercise our democratic right to determine our leaders. I therefore petition that a General Election be called immediately after Blair’s departure.

12. UK Government to ICC for illegally installing Idi Amin

In 1971, the UK Government illegally installed Idi Amin as president of Uganda (http://www.africanfront.com/amindada.php).

This led to 7 years of dramatic economic decline and also to dreadful human rights violations, including of course many gruesome deaths.

The UK Government bears responsbility for the Human Rights Violations, and also for the economic decline, which took another 21 years for Uganda to recover from after Idi Amin was forced from power.
