I have a small business and one the two things that make my business suffer more than anything else is high business rates for which we get little for. The rates system is outdated and ignored year after year. You want business to prosper, then help us to help you. The other is the unfair VAT system for the food sector but that's another petition.

I am a small high street gift shop and am struggling to keep my business going during the economic downturn. My business rates have increased by 23% while my sales have decreased. How can this be helping the high street while online traders pay next to nothing?
