Museum Entry Charges

It's great the institutions such as the Science Museum are free to enter, but it's clear that they could do with more funding (or less taxpayer input). So why not allow all UK taxpayers or citizens enter free of charge upon presentation of suitable ID and place an entry charge on all others. It's common throughout the rest of the world, so why not here?

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.

motorhome stopovers

most large cities have a racecourse near to  their city centres, why not let them have Aires parking areas for motormes to park , allowing the occupants somewhere safe and close  to local ammenities, For instance I live in Liverpool and Aintree racecourse would be ideal for visitors with a local rail station right outside course

Switch the white-on-brown “tourism” roadsigns to metric

Currently, the familiar white-on-brown roadsigns providing directions to tourist attractions are treated as any other roadsign and their formats are strictly governed by the Traffic Signs Regualtions and General Directions act (of 2002). That's OK in itself, but this forces those signs to conform with the other rules in TSRGD which enforce the use of miles and yards onto all signs.

Now, these are signs that are predominantly intended for tourists. A large number of these tourists will be from outside the UK and won't be familiar with miles or yards (as indeed are our own children until they are about 9 or 10 years old).

Make Britain more friendly for our visitors, and change the tourist signs to metric. Don't waste money requiring the old ones to be converted (though that would be an option). Just make it a requirement that all new ones are in metric and that when old ones need replacing that the replacement shall be in metric.

Just metric, not both systems. That would clutter the signs horribly especially in Wales where the current signs have to be translated. ( Welsh for 'mile' is 'milltir' and 'yards' is 'llath'. ) The great advantage of metric in Wales is that 'km' is 'km' and doesn't need to be translated. Other bits may do, but at least the distances would only appear once, and be clearly understood by all.

Britain is noxious for motorhomers.

Modern motorhomes are expensive and self-contained units usually owned by retirees with disposable income. They are not inhabited by itinerant poor gypsies looking to steal, beg or otherwise commit anti-social acts.

Travelling around Europe there is generally a welcome to be found. Motorhomers spend money in local businesses and for the most part maintain high standards of environmental respect.

This is not the case in the UK. Civil liberties for motorhomers in the UK are the lowest in Europe. There is general mistrust and a feeling that they are not wanted.

UK highway parking infrastructures are also almost the worst in Europe. There is a dearth of stopovers See the lorries parked up for a rest immediately adjacent to the highway with other lorries shaking them as they roar past a few inches away at high speed.

See motorway services politely informing the customers of their for the most part sordid and overpriced facilities that if they park for over 2 hours a 60 pound charge will be levied.

See the lack of overnight-allowed parking facilities in towns where the car parks are empty from 5 pm until 9 am – precisely the times motorhomers would like to use them.

Modern motorhomes are self-contained. They have their own waste carrying facilities and have virtually no negative environmental impact.

I'm afraid that my idea of a motorhome holiday is to head for Dover and breath a sigh of relief as I land in France and feel that my presence will not be resented/break the law.

Yet I would love to explore my own country and spend my hard earned savings in British pubs, restaurants and shops. 

But I feel a foreigner in Britain. So I will continue heading for Dover.

Please change the law to make appropriate parking by motorhomes feasible and possible in this otherwise green and pleasant land.

No Overnight Staying On British National Parks

Unlike France and the majority of the EU , if you are travelling around the UK on Holiday or short trips (which is now what many people have to do due to circumstances etc) In mobile camper vans etc. You currently will get fined if you stop over on a national park between 11pm- 6am. This in todays Britain is wrong as many people only wish to stop for one night on the journey and move on. Sometimes opting for caravan camping sites is not an option or disirable. We should adopt the French/German attitude where camper vans are more welcomed and accepted and are able to stop dusk till dawn where it is safe to do so.

Motor Caravan Aires and Wild Camping in suitable locations

Permitting Motor Caravans to park in locations other than licenced or exempted caravan sites will require the Public Health Act 1937 section 286 and The Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 being ammended.

THe 1937 Act defines what constitues a caravan and the 1960 Act requires that Caravan Sites are licenced or carry an exemption issued by certain clubs and bodies. A Caravan is defined as being a vehicle or vessel that has been built or adapted for human habitation and does not recognise a difference between a Static, Touring(trailer) or Motor Caravan.

Modern Motor Caravans are totaly different and contain superior sanitary and habitation equipment to those envisaged in the 1930s and 1950s. Motor Caravans are in fact luxury hotels on wheels these days with Bedrooms, Kitchens and bathrooms with hot water and showers and sealed toilets.

A recognition that a motor caravan parking overnight does not need the same facilities as a touring caravan is required.

A recognition of the diference between camping and parking (including using the vehicle for cooking and sleeping) is required.

Motor Caravans are much heavier than touring caravans and existing grass caravan sites can prove unsuitable for them in wet weather. A Motor Caravan simply needs a firm level surface to park on and from time to time access to basic facilities for drinking water and to dispose of wet and dry waste.

Camping as defined in regulations for Camping Cars abroard is putting anything including Tables, Chairs, steps, waste and water containers, Awnings, ramps etc outside of the vehicle. There are no restrictions on what you can do within a parked vehicle.

Modern Motor Caravans are totaly self contained and only need facilities to get fresh water and dump black and grey water every few days. They are designed to carry these loads unlike touring caravans.

Local Authorities have the power at present to allow Aire type stopovers on land owned or leased by them under section 11 of the 1960 Act. Few have used this power.

Britain is unfriendly to visiting motor caravan users as we require them to join one of our clubs to use a reasonably priced Certificated site or some of the club sites. Otherwise thay need to use highly priced commercial or club sites.

We can enjoy using our Motor Caravans abroad without such restrictions using the many municipal and private Aires available at very low or even no cost other than a couple of Euros to obtain drinking water.

It has been recognised since the 1960s abroard that Motor Caravan users bring trade into areas they visit, as they need to buy supplies and will use and visit local amenities and eating places. It is time the UK recognised this and became more welcoming to travelling visitors. Many of our authorities are still in the B&B mindset with regards to taking holidays, or are "Traveller" phobic.

Action needed:

Examine and revoke or re-write the 1937 and 1960 acts to bring them into line with todays developments.

Instruct local authorities to remove restrictions preventing the use for cooking and sleeping in parked Motor Caravans.

A recognition that a motor caravan parking overnight does not need the same facilities as a touring caravan is required.

A recognition of the difference between camping and parking (including using the vehicle for cooking and sleeping) is required.

Require local Authorities to make use of existing underused parking spaces at night such as Coach Bays or car parks to permit the overnight parking of Motor Caravans.

Remove height barriers from some parts of otherwise restricted car parks so that larger vehicles can gain access. (Restrictions could still apply to the type of use to which these spaces are permitted to be used for ie no commercial vehicles or trading, and the lenght of stay permitted).

The Traffic Signs Regulations should not have authority over footpaths and cycleways

Currently, the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (TSRGD 2002) control the shapes and formats of every permissible roadsign in the UK. This is good, but the TSRGD 2002 overflows its brief in that it also controls permissible signs on footpaths and cycleways.

Currently the TSRGD 2002 rules mandate the use of miles and yards on all distance signs. Because of the overlap onto cycleways and footpaths, a possibly unintended consequence of this is that the country's footpaths and cycleways have to be signposted in miles and yards too.

This is bad for business and confusing to all.

Cycleways and Footpaths should be governed by their own regulations, in metric from the start. It's the 21st century and Britain claims (officially) to be a metric country. Kindly make the facts match the claims!

lift ban on drugs

As we all know, some idiot believes that the way to  make drugs safe is to ban them and pretend there not there. NOT THE CASE IDIOT!!  Making drugs illegal makes the person using the drug a criminal, when in some cases the user is a law abiding citizen that just fancy's a lil buzz on the weekend or getting stoned and watching a funny film for laughs. LEGALISING DRUGS MAKES THEM SAFER! NOT GOING TO BE MIXED WITH OTHER CHEMICALS IF THE GOVERNMENT CAN CONTROL IT. FOR INSTANCE, LEGALISING CANNABIS, ADDING A AGE RESTRICTION AND THEM SELLING IN SHOPS PRODUCES REVENUE

Allocate resources to rebuild canal network

Britain is very lucky to have an outstanding network of canals which today are used mainly for leisure boating.  The British Waterways Board has had on ongoing program of construction and improvement but it has not enough resources.

Compared to the billions spent on useless projects, the return on investment on the British canals would be very good indeed, for the countryside, and balance of payments.

Taking Photos In Public

Police have been stopping people for taking photos in public places. Innocent people have been arrested for taking 'holiday snaps' of well known buildings. 

It's supposed to stop terrorism,  which of course it does not. There are thousands of photos available to terrorists to use for these purposes on the Internet anyway.

It's a waste of police time, bad for tourism, a waste of paper and a waste of money.

The law should go back to allowing people to take photos in any public place.

People have also been arrested for taking photos of police vehicles which have either been parked illegally or been involved in an accident (many insurance companies need photo evidence of accidents). If the police does something illegal or wrong, then  it's only right that we should be allowed to take photos of it. You can't trust the police if they're allowed to brake the law.

taxation ideas

I know that the main purpose of this site is to suggest laws for removal,but i do want to suggest a brilliant little money -earner to contribute towards reducing the deficit.Having just returned from about my 6th visit to Turkey,i have now contributed £60 towards their exchequer.All aliens arriving in Turkey apart from Germans due to some separate arrangement,have to hand over a £10 note in return for a stamp in their passport.Ostensibly it is a 'visa' but it is just a stamp.(No change given,and must be cash.if you only have a £20 note that's tough!!) So why don't we do the same?All non-EU arrivals could pay say £20 as they enter.I have no idea how many people this would involve,but it would soon add up to a sizeable amount of cash,as thousands come in every day.No £20 no entry.No delays.you have to put the money in your passport in the photograph page,and they just remove the money and stamp your passport.Talk about money for old rope!! But it's a great idea.

MOTORING TAX

Foreign juggernauts don't pay tax to use and damage our roads.Road tax should be included in fuel tax.

Advantages:

1. No dodging of road tax Every road user pays,and it cuts down on Police time and Court costs etc..

2. Those who drive the most and use most fuel pay more in line. with usage.

3.Foreign drivers contribute which is fair as we have to do in France and probably many other countries.

4,Cuts out administration which is costly

The Law and Naturism

I would like to see the current law on indecency in public amended to allow naturists not to be apprehended if going about their lifestyle in their own gardens or in discrete locations in the countryside or on beaches etc.

Legalize Drugs

The use, possession and supply of all drugs should be legalized immediately. It will destroy organized crime cartels, solve the problem of overpopulated prisons and most important of all it will be giving people the choice. If somebody wants to mess themselves up by putting a load of dodgy chemicals in their body then let them! Drugs will become safter as a result, with legally-enforceable quality guidelines (no more coke cut with talcum powder), and it will give a massive boost to the economy as tourists flock here from all over the universe to get out of their faces and spend a load of money at British businesses.

Presentable and attractive views on properties

My idea is to make properties more presentable, you can do this by making it conpulsary to have an acceptable apperience on your house, this is because having a "messy" house on your street affects the costs of peoples houses, also it affects the appeal of people wanting to buy or rent properties around where there are unexceptable houses.

Having such horrifying sights gives England and the rest of Britain a "bad" look, this isn't appealing and that means we loose a lot of tourism.

For example we will use a council house, not all council houses are horrible and are tecnically an eye sore (which is a type of pollution). This is a link to a horrible council house http://www.freefoto.com/images/11/23/11_23_30—Derelict-council-house_web.jpg
 

and this is a link to a council house which is presentable and which all council houses have to set a standard to, if not even better.
