Raise or scrap limits on maximum investment by individuals in co-operative businesses.

The maximum legally-permitted investment by an individual in a co-operative business is currently £20000.

My idea is to raise this limit, either to a higher fixed value, or annually in a way which is index-linked to the cost of living; or to scrap this limit altogether.

Reduce and Simplify Speed Limit

Reduce and simplify speed limits for all vehicles on all roads (possible exception of motorways). For example, all roads within a town area to have a speed limit of 20mph and all roads outside of town area to be 40mph. There would be little or no need for speed limit signs either.

Remove windermere 10mph limit from Windermere Navigation Byelaws 1986 ammended 1992

The sad part about the Windermere Navigation Byelaws 1986 (ammended 1992) is that they are questionable as to being in breach of UK residents human rights. People were water skiing on Windermere before the national park took over the management of the land around 1929.

The sail boats that are allowed pose a visual block on all the lakeside landscape and infringe most views when behind one on the lake.

Why not let our cumbrian (and other local) kids enjoy the fabulous sports opportunities that windermere has to offer involving the use of a powered craft over the speed of 10mph.

These same people who set these crazy laws also moan about kids in the areas hanging around with nothing to do.

our last and only hope for the removal of this economically crippling law is the new coallition government, come on chaps, try this option.

1) Crafts can only exceed the 10mph limit if towing a human interacting in a watersport.
2) Crafts can only exceed 10mph between 7am and 1030am and 1800 hrs and 2100 hrs.
3) Crafts can only exceed 10mph when in the designated areas of the lake

Please can we add the three points above to the windermere navigation byelaws?

Then the area may do some business, never seen so many hotels and guest houses for sale

Remove all speed limits on motorways

The current 70mph limit on our motorways is woefully outdated,
in the real world how many drivers actually abide by it?

I suggest a removal of the motorway speed limit, to be replaced by more charges of careless or dangerous driving.
Consider this,

Person A is driving on a motorway at 6am on clear dry Sunday morning,very few vehicles on the road.
They are travelling at 100mph.

Person B is driving on the same motorway in winter at a busy period,
weaving in and out of traffic at 70mph.

Who is more dangerous?

We need less arbitary rules and a move towards common sense allowing police to exercise their judgement.
