An economic liberty: nationalise the Christian Brothers & liquidate

This is an idea for economic liberty rather than legal, so it is slightly off the invited topic.

I note that the Christian Brothers have stated that they will only co-operate with a government enquiry (not the UK government but the same sort of thing in Eire) if complete anonymoty is guarenteed.

At such a point in proceedings, I suggest it is time to nationalise UK assets of the organisation, liquidate those parts which serve no popular purpose to the mainstream of the population, and donate the takings to a trust fund to support those who have suffered from such organistions.

Simples.

Unfair School Transport Policy for Low Income Children Living in Rural Areas

Dear Nick Clegg,

Please can you change the School Transport Policy to INCLUDE children from low income families living in rural areas that do not have 3 schools within 2 to 6 miles from their homes.

The policy states that the statutory right to free transport for secondary school pupils from low income families provides a choice to one of the three nearest schools to their home address. However, transport will only be provided if the school is between 2 and 6 miles of the home address, and to the nearest school preferred by reason of a parent's religion or belief, between 2 and 15 miles of the home address.

Real Choice – In a statement, School Minister Lord Adonis said "We want to remove transport as a barrier to parental choice. No young person should be prevented from going to a school of their choice simply because of travel costs. That's why it is vital to expand the right to free school travel for young people from low income families to give them real choice in applying for schools."

I look after my disabled husband and have two young secondary school aged children. I chose the second closest school for many important reasons and then was refused help with transport costs. Where is our "Real Choice"? There is no real choice if you live in a rural area!! Even religion is taken into account and are allowed up to 15 miles from their home. My second closest school is 12 miles from our home. You are lucky in most rural areas if you have one school close to your home! It is the children who live in rural areas that really need the help with transport costs as they have much further to travel thus incurring high costs.

We strongly believe we are being excluded from this policy just because we live in a rural part of Devon.

Please, please PLEASE can you amend this policy? Thank you.

Get rid of red tape surrounding adoption.

I am 1 of many people who would like to adopt in the near future, but currently i will have a major fight to do so given the amount of red tape, tests, exams, courses etc…. that is compulsary before YOU are told that your capable to adopt. I have a loving partner, we have our own children who are happy, loved, do well in most of their achievements and are behind us adopting. I have a friend that tried to adopt but was refused due to a criminal offence from 20 years ago! has never re-offended since and is a wonderful parent, who was willing to adopt 2 or more siblings.

Unessarcary laws prohibiting the progress of Childrens Social services

My idea is to scrap all the unessarcary paperwork for social workers, so they can spend more time with the young people entrusted to their care, The whole serivce need a reform, it needs to be much more efficent, also i think that young people accross the county that are in care should have a council which put forward their views on how the service shoul be run in a much more efficent way to help them, which i actualy plan to set up this year, this is so the fabric of the level of care will be much more effectivew in serving and looking after those children who are most in need in this country, and it is wrong just to sit back and to watch these children suffer and have there right continuouslty being swayed, and abused, (i myself am a 16 yr old child in care) and continuing to rin the service in this way is not jsut impeeding the progress of the level of care support, they get, but it is resticting their future whcih will make them more likely to depend on benefits or be homeless, or end up in prison, and this will imnpeed the gfrowth and integrity of this country, it will jsut ruin the fabric of society, and this country will ineditably fall unless we act now to change the policies in Social services and unessarcary laws prohibiting disiplin of the child, for without disaplin they are much more vounderable to join gangs and illegal activities. so we need to make sure this does not happen and to bring them up on such a way that they will have a good start up for their lives.
