Remove the ability of private parking contractors to levy fines

Remove the ability of private parking contractors to obtain private data from government bodies such as the DVLA so as to enable them to levy fines.

Also – on a similar theme – remove from these people the ability to remove motor vehicles from places which they deem to be an inappropriate parking place.

Repeal those parts which enable unwarranted snooping

Repeal those parts of the "anti-terrorism" laws which enable local council personnel, amongst others, to spy upon the population. It is ridiculous to use this legislation for such crimes asa over-loading wheelie bins, leaving bags of donated items outside charity shops overnight and dog owners for not providing their pets with collars and tags.

Get rid of the Human Rights Act

Get rid of the Human Rights Act in the UK….get out of European Laws too and get back to our own Justice, where only the perpetrators of crime are punished.

Also 'cap' compensation' the courts can apply…..and stop us going down the American route of sueing for every penny one can.

Removal of the innocent from Databases

All innocent people must be taken off all data bases, including those found innocent of sexually related incidents and violent crime, because innocent is innocent regardless of what.

These innocent people are given a life sentence in effect because their names remain linked to crimes they did not commit, but are seen by anyone checking at job interviews and other such occasions.

They must be removed from CRB lists, DNA bases and police records of all types including arrest reports.

Please see to this as a matter of urgency  and restore some faith in British justice, which I thought was a model for other countries.

Immediate Clean Slate for all Non-Fraudulent Tax Credit Overpayments

Write off all non-fraudulent tax credit overpayments whilst continuing to recover those resulting from claimant fraud.  This will save innocent, hardworking families from the distress and hardship caused by system-created errors, and will save the millions of pounds currently being wasted on forcing families who spent their awards in good faith to somehow find money they do not have.  Compassion and sound economics all in one!

Change the Human Rights Act 1998

If you have committed a criminal offence or anything deemed unlawful then you are not entitled to human rights but basic rights.

Only the innocent or those innocent until proved guilty should be afforded the full rights.

British people have precedence in rights issues as they are citizens of this country. Other nationalities have their own rights under their constitution or nation.

Public Performances +

Allow buskers/street artists to perform wherever they like without being moved on by the police, but, also if people think they're rubbish they should be allowed to throw things at them – for example turnips and tomato's – to dicourage them. Perhaps we could also bring back the stocks in town centre for drunks, should be a good bit of entertainment

ALLOCATED LAND FOR FREE PARTIES & FESTIVALS

The idea is to approach local farmers,land owners for earmarked plots of land that are suitable,not too near residential areas, to organise free parties & festivals.Most of these type of events operate on a donation basis ,or generate free enterprise income with food,tea n coffee,clothes n jewellery stalls,and i'm sure the land owner could make some profit too.   These events would operate on a non exploitative basis. All operations can be organized through (nonrestrictive) local council (co-operation) in conjunction with( experienced free party organizers )   .One of the main things this idea would negate,is what we are suffering now= BINGE DRINKING + all its related problems in our towns & cities. I cannot emphasize enough the need for these type of events. During the Thatcher administration + unrepealed by Blair these type of events were stamped out via the CRIMINAL JUSTICE BILL. The country was suffering deep recession +cutbacks ,the youth culture had all its creative expression repressed.  This resulted in riots up and down the country (the queen was not amused) .The residue from this of wich we are suffering now is a culture of directionless youth who cannot express themselves in any other way than (BINGE DRINKING) + all its antisocial ramifacations  . This idea cannot & should not be taken to be shallow or petty in the least,it is a fundamental human right.

Inclusive school assemblies of all beliefs.

What is happening?

In England all state maintained schools are legally required to provide daily collective worship for all their pupils. In community schools the majority of the acts of daily collective worship that are provided in a given term are legally required to be of a ‘wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’.  In ‘faith schools’ the act of worship is provided in accordance with the school's trust deed or the tenets and practices of the religion or religious denomination of the school.

This means that all school pupils are currently legally obliged to undertake an act of (usually Christian) worship each school day, regardless of their own beliefs. Although there are opportunities to opt out of this, this is only allowed if requested by the parents. This leaves young people without access to their right to freedom of belief.

Although the law on collective worship is clear, it is widely ignored, which is clearly very unhealthy in a democratic society. OFSTED's 2002-03 annual report, for example, states that ‘four fifths of schools do not hold a daily act of collective worship for all pupils’.

We are strongly in favour of inclusive school assemblies, which can help to build shared values and a sense of community. We oppose acts of collective worship in school, since these exclude many, and believe that the parental right of excusal is not a proper solution.

Review the laws surrounding offences against the person

A complete overhaul of the whole raft of legislation surrounding offences against the person to include strong support for those using force to prevent crime, disorder and in self defence.

At the lowest level consider removing completely the offence of common assault. This makes it an offence to bump into someone in the street and it is only the increasingly rare practice of common sense that prevents someone being prosecuted for a rugby tackle during a match or a minor squabble between school kids. Common assault is an assault where there is no injury and sometimes not even any contact between two people. People need to be more tolerant! Replace it with indictable offences of assault with a weapon, resisting arrest(sentence not to be served concurrently) and domestic assault.

In the middle we have ABH and GBH. These offences can often be very arbitray. Where similar acts can be charged very differently and the intent or possibilities are secondary. It is possible to attack someone with a sword and cause a minor cut thus being charged with ABH or common assault whilst someone else has a minor punch up often where both parties are equally to blame and the victim ends up (most often through drunkenness) falling and injuring themselves thus gaining the other party a charge of GBH. I believe that the whole raft of different offences should be condensed into one charge of assault where injury is caused and leave it for the court to decide an appropriate sentence based on all the surrounding facts.

At the top end we have Manslaughter and Murder. In my experience these work well and should remain largely unchanged though there is a strange quirk of the system where the same sentence is applied to those that commit the most serious of serial offences and those that commit their offence, for example, after extreme provocation and present little ongoing risk.

This review needs to clear up the ambiguity surrounding the lawful use of force and apply strong safeguards to those who find themselves using force because they felt they had to in order to prevent crime, disorder and make arrests. There should be a strong bias against prosecuting such people even if they are mistaken. This should apply to the Police and other members of the public and should reflect the fact that people have to react quickly, on instinct, and don't have the time to weigh up the pros and cons.

Finally offences involving violence should be fast tracked through the court system as they pose the stongest threat to our society with the highest risk offenders.

Apply Rehabilitation of Offenders Act to retention of DNA records

Some time ago Lord Justice Sedley suggested that everyone in the UK should be placed on a DNA database.  He was right to point up the present unfairness in the way that genetic information is stored at present.  However, we must be very wary of moving to complete recording, which would take us a very long way in the direction of a police state.

It would be best to go back and review what we are trying to achieve by recording DNA information, and to set in place some straightforward rules.  I suggest the following, which might strike a successful balance between our civil rights and our need to detect crime:

Rule 1.  All DNA samples taken from a crime scene may be retained until the crime is solved and prosecuted successfully (or is otherwise concluded satisfactorily).

Rule 2.  All DNA samples taken from suspects may be retained until the crime is solved and prosecuted successfully (or is otherwise concluded satisfactorily).

Rule 3.  All DNA samples taken from suspects who are not convicted are to be destroyed at the conclusion of the court case and any immediate appeals.

Rule 4.  All DNA taken from convicted persons may be retained only for the period that is defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, and thereafter must be destroyed.

These rules would seem to allow the Police to make valid cross-comparisons with other cases during the period that they hold the samples.  By the same token, samples are not held longer than they need to be.

Demand a full, international, unbiased investigation into 9/11

9/11 was the excuse for the introduction of many of the anti-terrorist laws which have eroded our civil liberties at an alarming speed.

There is a growing, massive amount of evidence that this was a terrorist attack carried out by the US/Israel mossad on US soil against US citizens and other foreign nationals.

Given the pivotal role 9/11 has had in the erosion of our liberties, in the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, not to carry out a thorough and honest investigation into this huge crime is in itself a crime and a gross abuse of civil liberties.

The people of the world have the RIGHT to have all the information examined and investigated.

Change the laws regarding ‘classified’ information

The laws governing what information is deemed 'classified' are clearly being abused. One example is the withholding of the information surrounding the death of Dr. Kelly.   Another is the information on the investigation into child pornography in which Government ministers were implicated and which Tony Blair buried as 'classified' , not to be made public for 70 years. 

The 'excuse' was that many of the prominent people whose names appeared on the list of those who had accessed a child pornography site, and paid with their credit card, had had their identities stolen.  This is YET TO BE PROVED.  In US charges have been filed against people on that list and are being pursued through the courts.  So, either there was some validity in the information or there wasn't.

If this had happened to ordinary people, there would, rightly, have been a ful criminal enquiry.  Unless you advocate one law for the ordinary people and one law for those in positions of power and trust, these and other issues must be declassified and investigated thoroughly.

The laws as they stand are being used to protect members of our Government from the public scutiny to which they should be subjected in any real Democracy.

As a UK national, I must insist on the principle that the Government's duty is to serve the people, and that it is the duty of the public to scrutinise the Government and impose checks and penalites where that is necessary.

The abuse of the 'national security' laws to bury and hide wrong doing on the part of this Government is a gross infringement of our civil liberties and effectively prevents the public from doing its very important duty of scrutinising and monitoring Government activities and Government Ministers.  Therefore it is a crime against the UK people and against democracy.

According to research which has been done, only about 5% of the information which is being withheld from the British pubic  relates to genuine 'national security' issues.

The other 95% of that wrongly withheld information should be released, so that we the public can do our very important duty of monitoring our representatives.

So I call on you, Deputy Prime Minister, to restore our democratic and civil rights and release all the information improperly held as classified and repeal the laws which make this abuse possible.

Whats so funny about peace, love and understanding?

In using the title from Nick Lowe's/Elvis Costello's iconic song about the need for freedom and radical change I want to support the scrapping of the oppressive and unjust Control Laws as proposed by Amnesty International.  Surely a system whereby citizens, even though suspected of being our enemies, can have their freedom of thought and movement so constrained flies against all decent liberal vales?  Furthermore when these citizens have no way of ascertaining what charges/evidence has been brought against them, we are effectively living in a Kafkasesque police state.  The very chains with which we bind others simultaneously bind us.  The key to the lock we throw away is the key to our own freedom.

smoking ban

to bring in seperate areas within air conditioned pubs to allow smokers back into pub society. the smoking ban affects a large minority of customers who also tend to be pub characters at the heart of pub society. or allow more substantinal provision for shelter and protection from the elements for outside smoking. stop making life hard for a large minority of pub goers.

control orders are undemocratic

change the law – surely sensitive evidence can be given in private.

Even better also change the hawkish militiaristic approach our government  has taken towards the islamic world since 9/11 ( that is how it is perceived, and that is why the UK is inviting attacks). UK is punching above its weight now – Iraq war was illegal and Afghanistan is a disaster. We are no longer  a world power and cannot afford to behave like one: neither is it in the interests of the people in this crowded island – UK should concentrate on nurturing and healing its own alienated young people, and move away from US policy abroad.

I write this as a white 60 year old professional , mother of two and with no religion. born and bred in GB. I do not support terrorism at all, in any guise.

Policing the Police

The so-called "Independent" Police Complaints Commission is a joke.

Being run by former bent cops, it does nothing but cover up for bent cops, who, in Tony Blair's Brave New Britain, are allowed to kill passers-by at random and with impunity.

If public confidence in the Police is ever to be restored, then there needs to be a genuinely independent supervisory body.

Border Control should be abolished…

How big and wealthy a nation is is determined by the people in the nation. The United Kingdom is one of the Great countries God had really Blessed. The reason why God Blessed this nation is to take care of other nations on earth. They are the colonizing nation according to God. They have done a great deal of job colonizing nations and other things to mention a few. Things are terribly bad in most of the nations now and people are seeking greener pastures away from their homes. Why then must the nation who we all look up to as the only surviving hope turn around and stop people from coming in? Its very bad. I think UK should look into the border control laws and lastly the people who are already in the UK working and contributing to the economy of the country should be granted amnesty if they can provide proofs that they ve been in the country and have been contributing to the system.

some flexibility in smoking laws

The laws are too draconian here.  Be more reasonable.  If a restaurant or pub is spacious and well-aired, allow a separate room to be available for smokers. 

This would also help the catering industry and pubs increase their business.

The government should keep its election promises

Sites such as this are all very well, promising repeal of bad laws affecting civil liberties etc., (I will believe that IF it ever really happens)  but the government can't even be bothered to keep the promises it made in the election manifesto. The prime one today being the U-Turn on anonymity when accused of rape. People's lives are RUINED when they are falsely accused, even when later proven absolutely innocent as the mud still sticks whatever the court decides.

This is completely UNACCEPABLE and quite APPALLING.

 Commentaters on the BBC web site today overwhelmingly supported anonymity for accused people, yet the government have backtracked. I wonder if they will get my vote at the sooner, (if they carry on like this) than later next election 

Newley elected governments should be obliged to keep the promises they make before they are elected, especially those concerned with civil liberties and freedom.

Black and white cathegorization

As we all know most of the forms and questionars ask about the colour of your skin.

I belive this is so wrong and rasist behavior.  First of all because black and white  are two extreme points and there is a wide spectrum in between. Secondly there is no appropriate

relation between the subject and colour of skin, for example: qualification, belives, genetic, medical heritages, …..
