Tighten up consumer law to defend our rights

That the practice of stores selling say a bottle of wine at X in one store and Y in another, should be banned. It is reasonable to charge more in London where rents are higher, or in the Highlands because of distance involved, but where there is really no difference ie between two stores in Surrey, it should be stopped.

Furthermore, when looking to buy decorative stuff for my sitting room, I found that although they come from the same warehouse, one website within a group may charge thirteen pounds more for the same item, than another website owned by the same company. This is especially common at the biggest household name mail order companies.

I complained to Trading Standards and was told it's legal. It shouldn't be.

Scrap current UK-US extradition treaty

The current UK-US extradition treaty was supposed to make it easier to extradite terrorism suspects. Instead the USA has used it to extradite British citizens for civil crimes.
