No More Plastic Straws in McDonalds

Plastic pollution is a growing problem in the world. By 2050 it is estimated that, by weight, there is going to be more plastic than fish in the world. And, in recent years it has also started to make its way into the food-chain. Whales are known to have eaten plastic bags, so too have Sea Turtles. Whilst, fish have succumbed to eating polyethyelene microplastics. However, in recent years a new problem has come to the attention of the public: Plastic Straws. They are known to have caused the drowning of turtles  as they get stuck in their nostrils. This is needless and inhumane. Especially when an easy alternative is already readily available worldwide. Paper straws do exactly the same, except when they have been used they biodegrade. McDonalds, one of the largest Transnational Corporations in every country is one of the front-runners in their production of plastic straws, if they can stop, why can't many others follow their lead?! When we, as a nation, signed up to the UN Sustainable Development Goals we pledged to help life under water- this could be one of the biggest steps in helping us achieve this.

Save Teesside Airport. Calling on Northern Powerhouse Minister James Wharton to help...

Teesside Airport is at death's door - this is evidenced by the staggering decline in numbers of flights and passenger numbers.   Because Teesside Steel has now gone, the loss of Teesside Airport would send three shocking messages to the whole world: 1.  Teesside is struggling 2.  Teesside doesn't have a great future 3.  Don't think about investing in Teesside   If Teesside Airport can be saved then action needs to be taken quickly.  I'm calling on James Wharton MP - Minister For Northern Powerhouse - to swiftly examine the strange decline of Teesside Airport and reassure the public.   We need to know that he believes it can play a key role in Teesside's ability to win investment, jobs and prosperity.   Teesside has lost its steel.  Weak politicians have overseen the decline of a once proud airport - let's act now before it's too late.   Please sign and share   Andy Preston

UK Border Agency & G4S: Do not evict Cha Matty

Cha Matty, asylum seeker mother with a two-year-old daughter, blew the whistle on conditions at a G4S run hostel three months ago. She appeared in front of a select committee, and spoke to journalists. Now the UK Border Agency are evicting her and stopping all financial support, leaving them both destitute. The given reason for the eviction is that she has failed to return a form; in fact, she has returned it twice. We're asking the UK Border Agency to reconsider.

Stop Scotland having another referendum against the will of the majority

Sturgeon will not accept the majority of voters in Scotland wish to stay part of the U.K. Help stop us being dragged against the will of the majority into another referendum. We voted 55% to 45% to remain in the UK. The debate is settled. It was a once in a lifetime referendum.

Not a ‘Happy Ending’ for All. Call for Action to Recognise Legitimate Massage Businesses.

Stop Sexual Harassment of Massage Therapists & Better Regulations for All To stop this confusion and the constant harassment of legitimate therapists providing Health and Beauty services, there needs to be a clear distinction as to which businesses provide therapeutic massage and others which provide massage with the end goal of sexual gratification. We, in the Health and Beauty industry find this extremely important as everyone should have the right to feel safe in the workplace. This is not the case however, as massage therapists are propositioned daily to provide ‘Happy Endings.’  In the industry, we often have to deal with people expecting an entirely different service to the professional Health and Beauty services we are qualified and insured for. The fact that there is an abundance of sexual services provided by illegal businesses masquerading as spas and beauty salons, and they are actually brothels and parlours, indicates that the Government is not doing enough to combat this issue. If there are laws in place to prevent this, why isn’t this being regulated and enforced? Many men & women (especially women) that start out in the Health and Beauty industry at a very young age, find being asked for sexual services as extras a fear for their safety. Many therapists are subject to sexual harassment and leave the industry because of this. Receptionist's also find it a daily battle with seedy phone calls and perverse e-Mails.  As humans, we have a right to work without fearing for our safety. Suggested call for action is: 1.      Better licensing of legitimate Health and Beauty Providers and a certification for such businesses, so that they are easily recognised by potential customers as legitimate. This would confirm to customers that they are have a team of qualified, insured & fully certified therapists. 2.      legalese the sex work that goes on in some ‘Massage Parlours,’ which could possibly increase safety for vulnerable sex workers and decrease modern slavery and trafficking. This legalisation would make the industry more transparent and less ambiguous as to which businesses provide therapeutic massage and which provide massage with the end goal of sexual gratification.
