changes for special needs children

Hi all i am from the westmidlands UK and im a mother  to a 5 year old sweet boy with complex learning difficulties, We need loads more funding and understanding for children with all different special needs. More time in mainstream schools & more teachers training on special needs kids! We need more special school opening and time spent on our children just like the rest do, im so saddened by this it breaks my heart to know our children are suffering how about in 5-10 years time the next generation of children are going to suffer immensly due to this something has to be done NOW. Nevermind trying to pass our children off as naughty or cant be bothered to teach them so they end up in limbo like a pru with no formal education again due to no special school placement for children with no formal diagnosis, i am a mother of a special 5 year old boy whos going through hell with himself trying to get him where he needs to be! Like many others we need extra funding in order for our children to get the education they all deserve. Its been going on too long now something needs to be done i want to get as many signatures as i can to forward to the SEN department and above goverment for there understanding that us as parents simply cant keep going through hell all at the mercy of endless paperwork. We need them to listen to us parents as we know what's best for OUR CHILDREN not them! We need more special schools opening and training as theres a big rise in new cases and nowhere to place our children, please help by signing lets get our childrens voices heard Thankyou

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.

Make Christmas a holiday 364 days a year

Everyone loves the joy of the Christmas holidays. Families in pajamas in front of a roaring fire. Mistletoe hanging from bright red ribbons. Trees and tinsel and catmint tea... Why let such a perfect holiday only happen on one day? Let’s write to our congresspeople, senators, Members of Parliament, Members of the Legislative Assembly, Peers of the Sovereign, and every other political representative we can think of, and demand as politely as possible that Christmas be made a legal holiday 364 days a year! (Obviously, the final day should be reserved for Boxing Day, because everyone needs a break the day after Christmas. And without Leap Days, what would be the point of February?) It isn’t easy being a Christmas cat in a pumpkin spice world. But together, we can save Christmas, and bring the wonder of the most magical time of year to each and every day. Sign the petition. Bring Christmas back. Take on pumpkin spice! And remember — Tis the season.  You can read all about where I got the idea for this petition:

Prohibit in UK the practice of (Metzitza) Oral Suction Circumcision on 8 day old babies!

TOTAL BAN on the practice of Oral Suction Circumcision (Metzitza) Oral Suction Circumcision (Metzitza) is the ancient barbaric practice of, circumcising 8 day old babies with no anaesthetic and the orally sucking blood from the open wound in the penis. Unbelievably it is still legal in the UK! With all the work and money going into battling FGM, no one seems to raise a whimper in regard to the obvious "sick" factor. The concerns go much deeper  BROOKLYN, NY — The city's health department this week confirmed the first case in 2017 of a baby getting neonatal herpes following a controversial Jewish circumcision process. Metzitzah b'peh was performed on the baby, which is a ritual where a mohel, or trusted religious circumciser, uses his mouth to suck blood away from the circumcision wound on the infant's penis, the department said. The health department calls metzitzah b'peh "direct orogenital suction," or DOS, and said it can transmit herpes to newborn males.Since 2000, there have been 24 confirmed cases of herpes infection following DOS, according to the health department. Two of the 24 babies died, and at least two others suffered brain damage.In 2016, there were two confirmed herpes cases following DOS, and in 2015 there were three, according to the health department. This is the first confirmed case of herpes following DOS in 2017. The baby was put on an intravenous antiviral for 14 days. (Source:

Abusive fathers should lose the privillege to have contact with their child

Abusive partners should lose the privilege to have contact with their child(ren) if the mother is forced to flee domestic abuse whilst she is pregnant or whilst the child is too young to choose for themselves. Abusive ex partners use children as a gateway back into their victims life. Safeguarding restrictions being put in place is not sufficient. If the child has contact with the abusive parent, they are very likely to be exposed to domestic abuse when observing the parent in future relationships. This can be damaging and is not in a child's best interest. The abuser may also abuse the child or use the child to indirectly continue to abuse their ex partner.

illegal or undocumented people to make them legal

There are lots of illegal people in this country from long time, those illegal people are from all continents like Europe, africa and Asia and some are suffering too much they don’t get healthcare, cant get decent job, can’t access certain govt services and they can't go back bcoz of some financial issues, no families back home or some other issues. why don't you make then legal like usa or Canada did, end of the day, UK Govt is in benefits, once they got legal stay, they got legal jobs so they paying taxes, let’s assume 5000 are illegal then assume the tax amount collected by HMRC once they become legal according to 40 hours per week ( ask hmrc ). ok if u think, after they become legal they r going to apply for the govt allowances or something similar then issue under special visa category with mentioning, he is not allowed for any benefits apart from healthcare unless he has some major accidents, total disablity or any crucial situation. But, I have one more issue for illegal people which bothers me a lot. These people are tired of being hiding. So, I want to support them specially shops owners, restaurant owners and many more are taking benefit of them by paying him law wages like £20 or £30 a day for 12 hrs shifts, why they suffer like this ? Why govt is not taking action against those owners ? if govt is helping refugees, if govt is helping homeless ppl then why not helping illegal people, This is completely baseless arguements by home office. Govt must have to do something for this people, after all, we all are human first then immigrants, Govt has to come with such solutions so they stop hiding it, u can put some conditions like people who are over 18 years old and stay in this country more than 5 years continuously without going back to his home country then they have right to stay in this country ( right to stay doesn’t mean u have to give them legal status through visa but some kind of ID which says he/she is illegal from particular years and allowed to work ) or give them indefinite stay or they can stay another 5 more years by applying visa or something similar. You can announce this through prime minister or home office. so they stop hiding and atleast work somewhere safely without any worry, now you guys thinking there is no visa category for this type people, if there is none then you should creat special catagory in visa for certain time period so everyone can surrender and apply for visa or something similar, if you do this then in next 1 year or 2, there is no iliegal person in this country, which is good for this country as well, Am i right or wrong? You might be thinking if you do this, then everyone jumping to this country, but atleast for certain time period, you can stop issuing certain visa category to fix this issue, and if you want to issue it then Issue genuine one only, bcoz illegal migrants has to prove some way or other that they are living in this country for particular years. End of the day, it’s a circle, trust me, if you think logically then Govt and home office is in benefits. I need support from, The Queen, Royal Family, home office, human right people, British law society, law scholars, scholars from British deputy high commission, scholars from UK Border Agency, BBC, Sky News, CNN, and all news channels to support me for this issue. Thanks.

Bring Back Sugar Drinks for People with a Real Illness & allergy to Aspartame

People who suffer from Migraines may have a severe intolerance for Aspartame. We cannot drink Diet Drinks as Aspartame and other Artificial sweeteners causes us more problems.  Migraine is the third most common disease in the world with an estimated global prevalence of 14.7% (that’s around 1 in 7 people). It is more prevalent than diabetes, epilepsy and asthma combined. Research suggests that 3,000 migraine attacks occur every day for each million of the general population. This equates to over 190,000 migraine attacks every day in the UK Studies have shown that Aspartame causes inhibition of brain serotonin and dopamine. Since drugs that raise dopamine levels in the brain have proven effective in reducing headache, it makes sense that consuming Aspartame could result in headaches because of reduced dopamine levels, The sweetener aspartame and the preservative monosodium glutamate (MSG), found in many foods, may trigger migraines. On the NHS own web site claims "The researcher found that some of the most common and well-established migraine triggers, including alcohol, infection, stress and the sweetener aspartame, have been shown to cause oxidative stress in a number of ways." and yet the NHS hospitals have banned all sugared drinks from the hospital. Hospitals like the Conquest and DGH only sell Diet drinks. Some Restaurants are now also not giving us the option to purchase these drinks and only offering us diet drinks. We are ill, and this causes us Pain, Why are we (Migraineurs) being discriminated against for the obese? We are not asking to remove the sugar tax, we are asking for shops, Hospitals, Restaurants to continue to be able sell full sugar drinks and not be penalised for doing so. The Manager of the cafe in DGH in Eastbourne told me that  they had to display/sell 95% of fizzy drinks as diet so it was easier just not to stock full sugar drinks.  Captain Americas in Dublin told me they cannot sell normal coke due to the sugar tax. Where is our freedom of choice? Please sign this petition and help me get our favourite drinks back in places we are used to. Please share this and get everyone you can to sign it, help us take back our lives, im sure Jamie Oliver doesn't suffer with Migraines otherwise he would never of started all this.  Thank you in advance for reading and hopefully signing this x
