Creation of an Independent Judicial Scrutiny Commission

Although historically UK did have a tradition that accepted that judges were independent and impartial when exercising their judicial function there has been paradigmic changes in the last thirty years, which demand more scrutiny and accountability:-.

The legislature has become increasingly laicistic, Christophobic and culturally Marxist/Fabian gradualist and any reference to God or our Christian heritage has been expunged from the EU constitution

Judges have engaged in judicial activism [1] with judicial rulings often based on personal or political considerations or the enforcement of political correctness rather than on existing law.

Judges have also been “pushing the legal boundaries”, changing the constitution [2], “making war on Britain” [3], and making new laws [4].

Let Councillors Have Opinions

If an elected councillor states that they think a proposed local development is bad for the area, the council solicitor jumps in and stops them voting on it.

If someone is elected on a particular platform – keep the local school open, support a bypass, support/oppose building flats, oppose airport expansion – and gets elected they are banned from voting on it!

Luncay!

But the law says councillors must approach each vote with an open mind, so a councillor with a (seemingly) pre-determined position is disqualified or the vote can be challenged.

Politics is based on policy, but anyone with a policy cannot vote!

Change the law so that:

Councillors for a specific affected area CAN have a pre-stated opinion.

Councillors outside the area should not, but are allowed to make biassed comments PROVIDED they are prepared to listen to arguments on both sides and allow the possibility that they may be persauded the other way.

Public Sector Workers and Political Activity

Public sector workers – civil servants, council employees and others – are banned from any kind of "political" activity if above a particular grade. They may not "engaging in a range of political activities" even if they do not brief elected officers, the press or public, and the activity is totally unrelated to their work or even the work of their employer. For example, a computer technician on spinal point 44 and working for the local council cannot legally write to the local newspaper supporting a campaign to keep a local school open because political parties at the education authority would have differing views, making the matter "political".  If just one MP or councillor expresses a dissenting opinion the matter is political.

Technically it is not even legal for any public sector worker on Scale Point 44 or above (about £30,000) to post an idea here or even click on the vote button. This is absurd. The Local Government and Housing Act 1989 (section 2) was introduced to stop abuses where council workers had phantom jobs and were really party workers getting council pay. This abuse is rare today and well understood to be corrupt.

It might be argued that exemptions can be obtained by applying. But in many cases people want to keep work and politics separate, and applying for official permission ends up labelling people.

In some organisations people on SC44 are many levels below the top of the organisation, have never met the elected officers and do not brief press, public or elected officials. The definition needs to be tightened. The top 2 tiers of management should be banned from political activity. Departments and people specifically involved in briefing elected officers, public or press on political matters should be banned. Other people should NOT be banned.

Give people the power to remove their name from mortages

There are so many people that have bought houses jointly, possibly because they could not purchase on their own. When couples split up someone invariabley has to leave the house to enable each party to get on with their life. Mortgage companies make removing ones name from a house that they no longer live in near on impossible – and there doesn't appear to be any legal way to remove a name, even if you can prove the other person still living in the house can make the payments on their own.

I suggest giving people the power to remove their name from mortages based on a set of criteria(i.e. if after 1 year they can prove the other person has been able to make payments)

Four square rule

It not neccessary to provide street  lighting for Helicopters,  low flying aircraft  or Airships (yet), but it seems to me that much of the energy used for lighting goes up rather that down. There have been a few ideas put forward, all basically the same (to be optimal they would have to be ) so I will quickly go over the main points:

1. by reducing the height of the lamp by a half the energy on the ground  is increased by 4.

2. an awful number of  lights are more that 3 or 4 times taller than  any thing that passes beneath  them.

3. So, cut the lamps in half or as appropriate and  reduce energy to a quarter or as required locall.

4. This might be acheived  in a surprisingl short time – tho I  do not have figures to prove that statement – and the safety aspect will be improved considerably, lower access.

5. People living along bus roots will be less likely to find themselves in situattions of great embaressment when they have forgotten to close the bedroom blinds.

Civil liberties for faith groups

I think that it is important that the civil rights of members of the major religions in this country should be respected.  It has seemed that in many cases their freedom to act according to their own consciences has been eroded.  The previous government seemed to bend over backwards, in the name of diversity, to put Christians' rights to the back of the queue.   We are not a tiny minority who can be disregarded –  you may not realise it but more people watch 'Songs of Praise' than 'Match of the Day'!

Reduce the cost of Benefits and Benefit Fraud

The essential point of benefits is to give the needy the means to eat, keep a roof over their heads, and pay essential bills. Many hard working people are resentful of the amount that inevitably gets spent on smoking, drinking, Sky TV,  etcetera.

With technologies available today, it would not be difficult to issue claimants with a card similar to a Bank card. Money gets credited to the Card directly from the Government. With the co-operation of the supermarkets and utilities, it would not be difficult to ensure that only appropriate items can be bought using the card that would fulfil the role of the welfare state from an 'approved basket'.

If people want the ability to spend money on less essential products like the 12-pack of Special Brew or a full Sky package, then they will need to earn some money to get it. It would also be possible to encourage healthy eating and discourage foods that have contributed to the obesity issue.

that a public enquiry should be initiated regarding the smoking ban.

I am calling for a public enquiry into the smoking ban.

A new study has revealed that The Smoking Ban has indeed been responsible for the decimation of our pubs – there is no doubt about it.

We must put this into context.

Prior to the smoking ban, ASH, funded by the Health Dept and Others, assured the hospitality trade, as a result of various studies and surveys,  that their trade would not suffer if smoking was banned. This has now turned out to be false.

Not only that, but the ban was rushed through using parliamentary tricks which belittle our nation and our democracy.

Further, various physicians have recently been quoted as accusing parents of child abuse if they smoke in the presence of their children.  

I say: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! The denormalisation and demonisation of smokers must cease!

The credit crunch, pensions crisis, Afghanistan, transport issues & road congestion, prison overcrowding, underworld criminal empire organisations, policing budget constraints, crime

 

The credit crunch, the pensions crisis, Afghanistan, public transport issues & road congestion, prison overcrowding (& drug use in prisons), underworld criminal empire organisations, policing budget constraints, crime statistics …. and more, much more, can be solved in a single fell swoop with one simple but radical piece of thinking.
 It will require not only a daring leader, but a forward thinking and single minded one, capable of resisting the futile argument of other  until now misguided ‘leaders’ that the current applications & arguments to deal with and pay for the abovementioned problems our society faces, is the correct and best approach.

The simple and radical solution .. ?? rescind the 1971 misuse of drugs act, draft new relacement legislation to legalise all drugs.

In my country of legalised ‘drugtaking’, step 1 would be to immediately release all offenders in prison serving sentences for drug related crimes, the immediate effect would be to reduce the prison population by some 30%, a further 30% if you release the burglars and muggers who are service sentences related to their drug use, i.e. those who committed crimes in order to fund their drug habit. The secondary benefits would then be that those left in prison would very likely have no drugs use to desire whilst in prison, and reducing greatly the current drugs use in prisons to a fraction of current rates.

On release, ALL of these offenders would be offered the opportunity to purchase a licence to use drugs henceforth that would also be offered to society in general. The license would be renewed annually and would apply to individual drugs, that is to say a cocaine users license, a heroin users license, a cannabis users license, magic mushrooms, ecstasy, diazepam, morphine… et al. Multi drugs use licences would also be available.

The newly reprieved ex-offender would be warned of the very, very stiff penalties that would accompany a positive drugs test the user provided for the presence of an unlicensed for use substance. After all, the annual license fee for any individual drugs usage would be a nominal one and within the means of all, be it £10 or £50, given that they will happily pay within these amounts for ‘one night’s use’ of a particular drug of choice.

All drugs user's licence holders are signed to provide a summary drugs test periodically, anyone found with a drug in their system they are not currently licensed to use would be subject to prosecution with stiff custodial sentences as a deterrent from unlicensed usage. Licenses are available to all adults for all substances and at a fee so as to encourage licensed use.

In turn this will greatly reduce crime overall, but specifically the low priority crime that was committed exponentially by small time drugs users to fund their habits, because now they don’t have to steal or rob to pay for their drugs of choice, instead now the government would be selling them their ‘clean’, ‘measured’, ‘certified’ and legal dose at a very reasonable rate, but with high returning revenues and built in profit margins.

Instead of waking in the morning and having to go break a window to raise money for his morning fix, your user in my world of legalised drugs use would already have his fix to hand, before then toddling off to his mundane, no risk gainful employment and instead of his small, but significant, part of adding to the constant rises in insurance premiums and ever escalating social welfare costs. Of course he would never be a fully functioning ‘high end’ earner paying thousands in income tax, but no longer draining the economy on multiple facets and indeed, contributing. He would of course not be able to work a full 8 hour day as a result of his habit, but mutual accommodations could easily be reached on him being allowed time to go have his afternoon fix by getting to the end of his working day after 6 hours, for sake of any figure over none.

The knock on effect on police hours would be almost astronomical in the time it would free up to catch many, many fewer offenders committing fewer crimes.

Whilst on the subject of crime, this would hasten the demise of criminal gangs and organised crime which relies on the £billions spent every year that funds the empires. Of course, with the government being the sole supplier, it would have every right to heap harsh reprisal on anyone muscling in on its territory and the selling of drugs would be seen on a par with anyone using drugs without the proper licence to do so, incurring the same stiff penalties if caught doing so (note; alcohol, nicotine and caffeine are considered by the writer to be drugs that would also require license for use with separate secondary licences available for production, such as home wine making or beer brewing. The writer would refrain from adding cannabis to a list of licensed home produced drugs and sets out the proposed approach in a further section of this document.)

It is then plain even for the blind to see that the police would have a lot less to do with no need to chase after people with what is effectively flowering heads from an illegal plant, by far the most used illegal drug in the UK currently. Added to that the reduction in petty crime and more serious crimes resulting from users trying to fund a habit on stealing and damaging property taken out of the policing equation, would allow for a more concentrated effort on solving non drugs related crime, as well as having a significant effect on the insurance industry, delivering a slowdown to the annual hike in premiums caused as a result of the criminal practices of drug taking criminals.

Licensing use of narcotic substances would conflict with all road safety matters and therefore drugs use of any kind cannot be combined with a license to drive, so society would be given the choice of a drugs use licence or a driving licence. Not everyone will opt for drugs use, not everyone will opt to drive, however many will take up the offer of taking drugs legally in favour of losing the license to drive and this will produce the effective decongestion of the roads by reducing the licensed users dramatically, allowing and encouraging the mass migration to fuller use of the public transport systems.

This country is currently ploughing money into Afghanistan in order to try and create a democratic society, however, Afghanistan is a country with no natural industry, no cohesive society that can even be used as cheap labour such as india, china etc, no resources save for its one major export…  heroin/opium. Then let's buy their heroin, and that way any money we plough into Afghanistan would be for a produce and allow the country to be a self sufficient one using its one natural resource to fund its own regenration and save us billions that we currently do to subsidise a build to no end or value. Instead of soldiers patroling the peace, teams of buyers would ensure that the farmers would receive the money for the opium crop, dealing only with the above board and legitimate government licenced opium producers, to stop terrorist factions from gaining from the trading or corrupt officials profiting from their positions.

I propose only the government grows cannabis… no 'for personal use' growing as there is in Holland. Cannabis should be grown in bonded warehouses and any home growing should be met with very stiff penalties so that every ounce grown can be sold with the tax paid. There should be restrictions on who can work in the bonded warehouses… only those of a pensionable age should be able to work in bonded cannabis growing warehouses, this would have the double bonus of keeping the elderly vital as well as taking them off the annual pensions payout. Of course there is no requirement to work in the bonded warehouses after reaching pensionable age, however the incentive of continuing to work and earn would not only reduce the pensions deficit, but would also raise revenue in the form of an income tax, albeit at a reduced taxable rate.

 

Now that we have embraced the sensible option of legalising all drugs to solve the many issues, expense and troubles drugs use causes as well as address a few other social issues we suffer from, we can expand thinking and actually make it a very lucrative policy indeed; let's invite the world to come to our country with their hard earned spending money by being the first country to encourage drugs tourism..  of course, the first thing they would have to do on arrival would be to apply for and PAY for a users licence and a tourist's drugs user's insurance policy… a tourist drugs users licence would of course be at a premium rate and temporary for the duration of their stay so that should they return again within any given timeframe they would have to re-purchase another licence.

 

It is a matter of debate as to whether drugs such as heroin, cannabis, ecstacy, cocaine et al being 'controlled drugs' is an oxymoron or simply a misnomer… for they are certainly not controlled, indeed the very fact that we have such a problem with the current controls is testament to this… let's get control of drugs by taking control of drugs use.

free fun and unity day

freedom to hold a festival of fun and unity on common land without the forced expense of police to oversee every  move. the expense is set at such a rate that the cost of policing the event makes it IMPOSSIBLE to hold, the local authorities have the easy no go can do if you cant afford the police. volunteers to be stewards with crowd control training would be invaluable as would volunteers with security or door training to oversee such events. litter picking is another of the L/A bug bares, if we leave the place cleaner than when we started that always  go down well. recycling properly all rubbish left and no cross contamination is also another plus. the greener the festival the better i.e oil instead of diesel run gennies, solar and wind powered lighting and all electrical needs. organisation is the key to be able to run this sucessfully. show we are responsible and polite citizens and we do have common law rights.  freedom is not a gift its a way of life until we live in a dictators black shadow . keeping the faith in sites like this is also key.

How can i be arrested under MDA

If i am caught with cannabis by the police, how can i be charged for being in possesion of a controlled substance when cannabis is clearly not controlled?

I suggest that anyone from now on whom is arrested – that when the police advise you you have been arrested for being in possesion of a controlled substance – that you point out to the police that it is not the case, as cannabis is not a controlled substance but rather an uncontrolled substance.

Alcohol is a controlled substance and so is tobbaco as they are only available to persons of age and are controlled by strick guidlines – no selling alcohol or tobbaco to minors

I find it disgraceful that MP's, paid by the taxpayers – for the people, leave the House of Commons whenever they feel like it and attend the House of Commons for hearings that they choose to – rather than required to.

It should take a school like feature, where MP's have to attend (unless impossible, through illness etc) or punishment will result.

Why is this idea important?

Sex Education : White Paper proposal

INTRODUCTION

Sex education should be about NOT having babies. Why do teenage pregnancies occur? Nobody tells those clean brains (they are nearly new computers and softwares) properly, and we all experiment. Young people need help, as here, not lecturing.

The Chinese had the right idea, to limit their population, but did they explain masturbation to their population? I wish they had, for all our sakes, because we might then have adopted the idea too.

The following several pages are written by an Engineer, a very senior engineer who is now 67 years old. The body is an engineering structure – it has bones and flesh and nerves and a brain, and also fluids, just like engines use oil. The brain is a digital computer, and it learns as it grows older, but the learning is just like a computer software programme – complex sure, but neverthless a computer and its software. The hardware is what we build as we grow up, enlarging our brains by adding more hardware (brain cells) as we go, and the software is what we learn from parents and school and by simply living and enjoying life as we grow older. We learn all of the time throughout life, and this White Paper is all about our bodies and how sexual they are. It is not emotional, but factual.

It is therefore quite basic, and is meant to teach the young person particularly, what sex is all about, for they expolore themselves too easily. There are no pictures, because that is not the point. It is Information, or as that intelligent robot Johnny 5 would say “INPUT INPUT INPUT”!! Engineering Input.

SOME EXPLANATIONS

Sex is not all it is cracked up to be.

For the man it feels OK, until the explosion of sperm called ejaculation, and then the penis aches for perhaps hours afterwards, because of the high blood pressure inside it which makes it rise called an erection. The blood valve opens after ejaculation and the penis relaxes, but the strain on the internal flesh of the penis and especially its head, is what makes it ache. For the woman, the vagina is almost not exciting at all, and in fact the body of the man banging against her pelvis is not pleasant, but she loves you, so ….. Oh well. All of her feeling is in her clitoris, and so gentle stroking is by far the best for her.

And then if they have a baby at all, the result is screams throughout the night and day for years until the child has learnt to look after itself. These screams change from real screams, to over-exuberance, to a determined “I want …..” as they grow older, and thus they exist right up until they are 18 years old!! My children are now over 40 years old, and I love them to bits, but …… My daughter struggles against a hierarchy at work which seems to want her to work 24 hours a day, and my son has just lost his job because the Company he worked for decided to put his job in China – having got him to go to China to tell them how to do it!!! I am concerned for them, and how it affects my sons young family.

My daughter is not married, for she found that men seemed to want to dominate her life – no way! My Mothers Sister similarly – she married only as she approached retirement! And my Mum is now 90 years old, and quite determined that the doctor is not going to run her life with his tablets, thankyou!

So, kids are with you for ever, and you should therefore consider whether you actually do want them at a young age. Maturity helps, for then you will have explored the world as much as you can or want to, and will then have decided what you really want in life, instead of letting an emotional drive to have sex AT THIS INSTANT, take over your life for years and years and years afterwards.

THE MORNING AFTER PILL

The morning after pill basically rejects implantation of the egg in the womb – nature does this every month of course. Fertilisation takes time – the sperm are not an express train, so the morning after pill rejects unfertilised eggs, and it is recommended that it is taken quickly. Have some in your pocket first, because on a bank holiday weekend you may not be able to get any within 24 hours. You may feel a bit sick after taking it, but only about 1 woman in every 60 actually throws up, when you should then take another pill. Pharmacists should help you, but there are some silly religious ones who want to stop you – find another pharmacist, there are good ones about too.

And maybe you might imagine this couple talking to each other? – “Do you want sex tonight? Why? Because it is nice, and I like it, don’t you? Well, I do not want a child. I agree, but condoms are painful. OK, so maybe no penetration, just play with the outside? Yes, that would be OK.”

Certainly, with careful use of fingers on sensitive nerves alone, both sexes can enjoy each other. Just do not be prejudiced because you have been told masturbation is wrong – it is GOOD and not at all wrong.

WHY IS THERE A SEXUAL DEMAND?

The male of our species passes urine down his prostate-penis tube, which triggers the need for sex after a week or two – women do not have the same demand at all, for their sensitive parts do not lie in the urinary tract. And the same when the male needs to go to the loo – the pressure inside the bladder-prostate valve may cause an erection if he has had to wait a long time, and some may misinterpret this as a need for sex – NOT SO.

SOME PRACTICALITIES

The UK Government or Family Planning Association documents never talk about using tissue to catch a male deposit. Nor about how difficult it is for a man to stop, once started. Nor about anything else useful in August 2010.

How does a woman clean that male deposit out of her vagina after intercourse? It cannot just collect at the top of the tube!! Does the slightly smelly deposit dribble leak onto her pants during the whole of the next working day? Of course it does.

When she has intercourse, do her internal organs get moved to one side – a little for the vagina is a collapsed tube the rest of the time. The old side saddle mania, was because MEN thought the vagina was wide open all day!

MASTURBATION IS GOOD – NO PREGNANCY, AND FUN

Many religions have said that masturbation is wrong. It makes you blind some say – absolutely ridiculous!! Rubbish religious propaganda. Tell them that rubbing by hand or finger is no different from rubbing any other way! Religious philosophy has been power mad for too many centuries, demanding we have more and more children – and it is the parents who are religious not the child. Who dictates to children what to believe? Who are virgin young and happy until the evil dominating propaganda starts?

Masturbation is nice and you like it too? Good, but the circumcised male especially finds this difficult, and needs help to avoid the vagina – lubrication and softness essentially necessary. KY Jelly should be enough, but clearly it is not just for use by a woman – the packaging message is missing some advice, and so Johnson & Johnson have been asked to add some extra info.

Even normal males would benefit from using it, for the lubricated head of the penis is then more comfortably stimulated – the penis will still ache afterwards, but this route is so much better for both sexes, that its use should be more widely promoted.

CIRCUMCISION IS WRONG, FOR BOTH SEXES

It is recommended that circumcision is not generally practiced – evolution over millions of years has decided that we are OK as we are (no chimpanzee or orangutan is circumcised), and those males who are cut find it painful for ever afterwards.

For women it is a huge disaster caused by religion again. The whole of their bottom end skin (labia, clitoris all most painfully removed) is destroyed by an uneducated comic “surjeon”, who has no feelings of any sort other than sadism – just imagine the screams in the backyard room, where this awful procedure is carried out. IT HAS TO BE STOPPED, for it is MEN who are DOING IT TO WOMEN. STONING TOO, for it is the MAN who BLAMES the woman for HIS evil!! Male penis castration obviously necessary, to really stop such male arrogance.

Back to the circumcised male (whose surgeons do that? Not the National Health Service Surgeons I hope): It is painful when older to have an erection because the skin is often cut too short at birth, and it will not stretch far enough when the male becomes a teenager and has an erection, and maybe not after then either – because the skin has to be made to stretch and that is difficult, though masturbation may help.

So it is misery for life, and not at all helpful, for the natural urine flow cleans the inside of the skin out time after time anyway – as I say the orangutan has had his skin for tens of millions of years now, and it is only humans who are destroying their own penis, and maybe some human circumcised males want suicide for erection can be quite painful. The only other relief for a circumcised male is to use the lubricated vagina, and so they are tied to a vagina for life (thank goodness KY jelly came along) – thus circumcision is yet another disgusting and old religious philosophy to promote having many children in our already over-crowded world.

You should remember that once circumcised the highly sensitive nerves of the male rub inside his pants every minute of the day.

No wonder he never forgets – it must be murder for some, if not all. The foreskin protects and reduces the demand for sex thereby – just as nature intended!

RELIGIONS THE WORLD OVER

Religious Dogma is why we have pregnancies – they merely want to populate the planet dead, and as individuals we mostly do not want them, for we would like to enjoy life first, and wait.

Abolish the TV Licence

It's nice not having adverts on BBC channels, but couldn't they find another way to fund the BBC?

The BBC is an organisation set up purely to 'inform, educate and entertain'.  Which is a good thing, but isn't that what all TV channels do? The BBC could stick to their motto still by focussing on the internet instead, which would be cheaper.

All TV owners in the country have to pay for the BBC, yet everyone else in the world can watch it's content for free online!

Regulate Scrap Metal Collectors

Bring the growing 'community' of scrap metial collectors/dealers into a lawfully-managed framework.

Limit the frequency of collections. Give people the right to know where their scrap metal is going.

Allow genuine operators to prosper, but stop cowboys or rogue traders operating.

Update Intestacy Laws

Update this law.

Allow natural heirs – by birth, marriage or cohibitation – to inherit from their parents/widows estate where no Will has been registered. 

Remove the effective obligation for citizens with the simplest  financial affairs to make their own Will.

Make the 1st hour free in all public UK car parks

Here is an idea to kick start the economy, especially in towns and cities dominated by supermarkets where smaller businesses are often loosing out becuase its free to park at the supermarket wheres its not to go and visit all the independant shops, retailers, markets and banks.  

Simply make the 1st hour parking in all public car parks free – This will open up our town centres again and boost trade. The cost of doing this could be recouped from the additional commerce this would bring.

Stop women being held in custody or arrested by male police officers

Following the conviction of Sergeant Mark Andrews, 37 for the assault on Pamela Somerville a petite 59 year old lady in the police custody suite. An incident in which Pamela has suffered permanent physical injury to her eyes and lasting psychological damage. Pamela who had not even received a parking ticket in her 59 years was arrested and brutalized by the police in a Police custody suit. Were it not for the Bravery of a Woman Police Officer who told a supervisor about the assault it would have not been brought to light. Many women claim they are raped and brutalized by male police offers in custody suits it is time to STOP vulnerable women being held in custody by male police officers.

Abolish The Independent Police Complaints Authority. Let The Courts Deal With All Police Cases As For The General Public.

The Independent Police Complaints Authority has institutionalised complains and set itself up as a quasi-court system out of our sight and a law unto itself. Who or what monitors it? To whom or what is it responsible?

The courts are the body for all criminals cases and the police should always be put before the courts not an insider body that might protect them or believe them not their victims.

All police and public official whatever should answer to open courts in exactly the same way as the rest of us. There is no case for giving the polics special privileges in law or in society.

More visa-free access for British Nationals (Overseas)

As a Hong Kong resident, I welcome the arrangement that Hong Kong SAR passport holders are eligible for visa-free access to Ukraine, UAE, Qatar etc. These countries offer visa-free access for full British citizens and HKSAR passport holders, but not British Nationals (Overseas). However, I would like to suggest that that same arrangement should be extended to British National (Overseas) passport holders.
