Anonymity for those accused of rape or sexual assault until found guilty

Anyone, men and women alike, who are accused of rape or sexual assault should have the same right to anonymity as those who have been raped. If they are found guilty then their names should be released to the media.

Why is this idea important?

Law restricting children to 10 days family holiday

The law against children taking more than 10 days family holiday per year, punishable with £100 fine per child.

Schools take a high moral ground point of viewwhen they are giving permission even for days within the 10 day limit.

1: School trips to the countryside or abroad or wherever are always touted as ''valuable not to be missed opportunities''

The benefits of school trips cannot be underestimated for their ability to widen the childrens point of view and encourage them to take a greater interest in other cultures, the countryside, history, etc.

Family holidays to the same places are regarded by school as detrimental to the child's education, ''a day missed of education can never be made up''

 

2: Easy to show that children who take more days off from school have worse results, this does not mean this is the cause but a correlation.

 

3:This law is like a 9 p.m curfew for the whole population, definitely has  a positive result in fewer problems on the streets at night but is just a blanket restriction on freedom.

 

4: Family holidays taken in term time are

better for holiday time availability and flexibility for working parents

better for businesses for flexibility

better for class sizes

better for spreading the load on transport systems

better for less mental stress of bank holiday style mass movements of people

better for holiday business to have a more consistent income

better for price affordability

better to develop childrens flexibility, ability to fit in and catch up

 

5: Family holidays are extremely important for many good reasons and need to be recognised as important.

Family holidays are a time when families can relax and communicate together, children can reflect and absorb.

 

6:The attitude of attendance being such an important are of school needs adjustment

Achievement, communication, cooperation, flexibility, contribution, acceptance of differing people and their views and respect for people to live their lives differently need to be encouraged.

 

This is a lazy and immoral law restricting everyone's freedom and is turning schools into prisons instead of places of creativity communication and passion for learning

Kids and swimming

The government says kids can swim for free. Why, then, do they need passes? They lose these – and photo ID (yes – a passport!) has to be shown plus further form-filling to replace a lost pass. All this just to swim. All kids should be waved through into the swimming paths as they approach the turnstile. (Why do they need a piece of plastic to prove they are a child when it is obvious to see!) This would also save a lot of money on admin.
