Useless CRB Checks Did Not Stop The Two Teachers Arrested On Porn Charges Yesterday.

To quickly repeal and abolish the legislation that gave every body in the UK the right to demand these useless and pointless requirements. They are bureaucratic, costly, of no effect whatever for their stated purpose and highly dangerous.

Abolish the Charities Commission

This quango is a pointless exercise.  It does not have the resources to police charities properly and it employs people with inappropriate levels of expertise.  The consequence is that large (often corrupt) organisations are never scrutinised while small organisation may find themselves deluged with demands which undermine their viability.

As misused the Charity Commission uses the legislation to permit it to police itself and to ignore the purpose of the legislation that applies to it and its functions.

Companies House should be quite capable of fulfilling the role necessary.

Streamlining CRB checks

A couple of years ago, I was in employment transition. I ended up having my CRB checked 6 times!! As a nurse, I am required to renew my registration annually – given that a lot of the job roles that require CRB checks actually also require professional registration of one kind or another, why not incorporate a CRB check in the professional registration renewal process? This would mean that employers would do one check – valid registration – and that, if there are people who have a questionable CRB, which has not been picked up because they have not changed jobs recently, this will become apparent.

Faith Schools

Maintained status should be removed from all faith schools.  It is offensive to a great many taxpayers that they should be subsidising the religious and cultural separation of our children in school.  Have politicians not learnt anything from Northern Ireland et al?

GIVE JUDGES MORE DISCRETION

Schedule 21 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 fetters trial judges unnecessarily in handing down sentences for murder. They are the ones who have sat through the case and they are the experts as to the level of sentencing. The last government listened to fears in the tabloid press and passed this populist measure. They should not have interfered as they are amateurs in this important decision-making process. Leave sentencing to the professionals. The schedule is vague, complicated and unnecessary.

CRB has ruined lives.

Please review the current system whereas every crime committed is recorded on a CRB check, regardless of the nature of the crime, the harm to the public, and the possibilty that it may prevent that person from ever being able to gain employment ever again. The CRB system is crippling many in an already impossible world to achieve a healthy working career, that otherwise would'nt have a problem.

A job application always asks do you have any criminal convictions. If the answer is yes, I'm sure the application goes straight in the bin. and that person remains on JSA.

Is it fair that someone with a minor conviction such as possesion of a small amount of cannabis, is deamed to dangerous to work, for the rest of their life.

I know some employers are open minded, and may overlook such an offence. But the truth is they don't . not when there are so many other applicants.  The aim of reducing the deficit in the economy, and getting people back into work would be so much easier if the CRB system was overhauled and minor criminals were not kept in the poverty trap and relying on the state to keep them, when all they want is to work.

Intrustion in to privacy

Lets forget about identity cards:

They solve nothing but can hold a lot of data which I cannot verify therefore unable to  correct if some Government Official inputs data wrongly

Scrap Big Brother CCTV Everywhere: including the home and on the road, where Speed Cameras have little to do with safety but fund raisers.

It also solves nothing merely records it. NB Bulger: great, it caught the little buggers (only to be released again) but didn't stop the child being killed.

The request for unnecessary data on tax returns, VAT returns and the National Census. In the latter case, contrary to popular belief it is not used for the positive way which it claims.

Storing any form of data without my consent or knowing what is actually recorded on that data base.

Scrapping the BBC.

Filming/Photographing in public places. Civil liberties being tarnished in the name of so-called “Homeland Security”.

I was on YouTube one afternoon and I came across this video. In this video a man is filming outside a police station (completely coincidential, in my opinion) and an officer came out and asked him why. Well, the dialogue is quite something. This man has a couple more videos on his YouTube channel that add to my point. The police try to basically bully this man into surrendering his Civil Liberties because he just happens to be filming next to a police station. The officer alludes to the media students being terrorists. Is this fair? You promote freedom and liberty, yet you go back on all the promises and guarantees that you preached to the British public during the Election campaign which you subsequently won. Would you take this idea down if I posted it up onto this viewpoints website? Like these men, I am just exercising my right to freedom of speech. We're meant to be entitled to our own freewill, yet you install cameras on every street corner and every lampost. In my own town (Warrington), I can walk down the highstreet and count at least 60-70 cameras. You're watching us, and there goes our privacy. Do you not trust your people? Do you not trust the people who pretty much built Britain up to what it is today? Our troops are fighting for their lives not because of terrorist threats (these are independant radicalist muslims, al-qae'da was wiped out almost 2 years ago) but because the governments of the democratic nations are trying to force their opinions on the rest of the world. I'm not saying our troops aren't doing a good job, they're doing an amazing job. Those troops, Those soldiers that risk their lives for you. They're made up almost entirely of normal hard-working people from normal hard-working families. It's as if you don't trust us. It's as if you want to watch every aspect of our lives. You call this freedom? No, I'll correct you here, it's not freedom. It's a surveillance state. Sorry for bursting your bubble here but it's like a kick in the teeth to us. Taxpayers money was wasted by the idiots who have seats in the houses of parliament because, to be honest, we're a nation build upon greed and automation. Everything is so easy.

We want our lives back.

Show some compassion for your people. Stop the cut-backs of the NHS.

Back Britain

Over the past months I have changed the way I/we shop, we now look for products made in this country even beers I will not buy unless they are brewed in the UK.

This government needs to support British businesses helping them to grow, we give millions in overseas aid and neglect our own people how crazy is that?

Even if the government fail to back this country, we should. We should be looking at what we buy and buy British cheap imports are not always cheap as they seldom last or are value for money.

As a nation, we need to start looking after our own and stop making other countries rich at the cost of our own.

preventing fraud under no win no fee

Unfortunately, Conditional Fee Agreements are a huge enticement to those that wish to bring fraudulent claims, because with the use of an after the event legal expenses policy they provide a claimant with a consequence-free entitlement to litigate. If the claim fails, the Claimant’s solicitor does not charge his client and the insurance policy should pay the other parties costs.  Unfortunately if a policyholder (the claimant) has lied to his insurer (i.e. to say that he was in an accident when he was not) the insurer can void the policy on the basis of its policyholder’s misrepresentation and get out of paying the otherside’s costs. This means that Defendants that do their “job” of defending cases successfully, may not recover the costs for doing so. This loop hole costs defendants (including local authorities) thousands of pounds per case.

If the law, that already exists for vehicle insurance, is extended to cover after the event legal expense policies, so that in the event a claim fails, the insurer must pay the other party’s costs, defendants can be assured that it is financially worth defending fraudulent claims. The insurer will have a right to pursue their policyholder for the payout, which should deter some would be fraudulent claimants, and if not, at least encourage the after the event insurers to vet their policyholders properly before they underwrite the claims.

Stop Local Goverments using Anti-Terrorism Laws to Spy on people

 

 

We need to censure local goverment (I.E local councils) from using anti-terrorism laws in order to spy on people, as they use currently,even for petty things like prosecuting people for overflowing bins etc!

simple law

We have too many laws applying to the motorist.

To enable any form of "aire" system to work, it is local authorities who need to have the means to remove persons and vehicles not complying with the rules ( limited days of stay, no commercial vehicles, etc. ) without recourse to the expensive and time consuming legal system as at present.

In France and Spain, if you do not move on when told to do so by the police, your vehicle can be impounded……so you move on !

Give councils this sort of backing, and they may stop their defensive attitude of height restrictions and No Camping signs.

Already, if you park your car illegally, it can be removed without court orders. Moving on those who abuse an "aire" system could be made as simple.

Transparency in Retail Banking

When you deposit savings with Banks, Building Societies and even N.S.& I . they are required to quote you a gross and net interest rate in a standard way, the A.E.R. With fixed term products what they usually don't bother to tell you is that at the end of the term you are not able to get access to your money (+interest) without a further delay usually of many days as they like to put a cheque in the post. Some institutions will make a same day CHAPS electronic transfer for a fee, e.g. £25 if you ask. In any case this delay or fee reduces your return and in effect invalidates and reduces the quoted interest rate which has actually been misleading.

This problem has been given a public airing in recent years but nothing has been done. Its time these institutions were legally required to illustrate at the outset how the fee or delay in returning saver's money reduces the interest they receive on their loan to the institution.

Police Reform

How well is it understood that the Police should be operating with public consent ?   The bullying and intimidating way that members of the public are sometimes spoken to, is not acceptable.  It should be possible to uphold the law in a civil, constructive, and effective way, that does not risk the allienation of individuals and  communities.

A civil society requires a civil Police Force.

Cowboy Clampers

We should make these people subject to the law.

I feel sure that they are guilty of theft and this needs to be tested.

What actually happens in this is that these bully boy clampers use their size and muscle to frighten and intimidate ordinary people. They appropriate property belong to another. A persons car. Then retain the car illegally intimidating the owner to hand over an unwarranted demand using a menace. Like You will not get your car back unless you pay this much money setting a high condition as to its return. It could be possible that the owner of the land is guilty of this offence. As the clampers are merely their agent in this.

The circumstances ar tantamount to street robbery.

The Sharia Is A Model Of Utter Simplicity. It Contains A Lesson For Us.

Use the Sharie as a model of simplicity for the framing and application of laws. All seem to understand the Sharie while virtually no-one can understand English Law (Common or otherwise)

The Sharie has stood the test of time. It works and is used in the UK already, although this is denied. Banking law is increasingly based on observance of the Sharia and this will increase as we begin to see the toxic and ruinous effects of the UK banking system.

I do not advocate adopting some of the traditional and Quranic laws of the Sharia. I simply say we could learn from simplicity and effectiveness.
