Help For Homeless UK - British tax money to stop the homeless dying on Britain's streets

There is a big problem with homelessness in the UK. I see it and hear about it every day in the City of Bristol. I'll be honest, I used to try to avoid people sat on the concrete with a blanket, in fear that they were somehow dangerous. Recently, I have spent a lot of time with people in Addiction Recovery, who have been homeless themselves, are truly amazing, inspirational people, and have started to successfully rebuild their lives. This shows me that it absolutely can be done. So now I am desperate to save the lives of others who are now homeless, who can make the same progress, if given the help they so desperately need. Millions of British tax payers money goes to waste on needless "improvement" projects, such as the Bristol City Centre project, which recently ran well over time & budget, when it didn't need improving in the first place! Also, our MP's have their "expenses" paid by the British tax payer, when surely they are paid enough already. Those are just a couple of examples! The UK has RIGHTLY sent £BILLIONS over the years, to help people abroad, who are in need. Surely though, with that being said, it has to be time to start helping our own people, suffering and dying, freezing cold and desperately hungry, on Britain's streets.  If the UK government spends our tax money on bringing our own people into the warm, safe, fed and watered, they then have an opportunity to recover from their ordeals, and eventually become tax payers again themselves. Please help me spread the word to the country by signing this petition and sharing my campaign videos on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and any other Social Media channels. Some say it's an impossible dream, but I believe the British people can unite to send the message LOUD & CLEAR to the UK Government, to save the lives of people in Britain.

Petition to Michael Gove, UK Parliament, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Theresa May MP

Repeal the government decision to exclude animal sentience in the EU Withdrawal Bill

UPDATE: Michael Gove has promised to make “any necessary changes” to UK law to recognize that animals can feel pain, however we can't trust that we will get the animal rights that this country wants until something is in law. We need to keep up the pressure on the Government to ensure animal sentience is put into law. Under EU law all animals are considered sentient (meaning they are beings that feel pain). This law is there to protect the welfare of animals. MP Caroline Lucas had submitted an amendment clause (NC30) to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, which sought to transfer the EU Protocol on animal sentience into UK law, so animals continue to be recognised as sentient beings under domestic law. Not allowing this amendment could see animal welfare go backwards instead of forwards allowing unethical exploitation of animals for hunting, battery farming and inhumane slaughtering for food.It flies in the face of commonly held scientific belief that animals do feel pain and have emotions. This is not a matter of left or right wing politics it's about protecting animal rights and coming together to ensure that animals maintain sentient status in UK law, to protect animal welfare. As Ben Fogle said "dogs are much smarter and more emotional than politicians believe them to be." The UK is still among the highest animal testing nations on the planet with 3.9 million testing procedures carried out here in 2016. Regardless of what has been claimed about how good our animal laws are we are ranked the 7th highest animal testing nation. I do not trust that the animal welfare we are petitioning for will be delivered by our government without the EU Protocol on animal sentience as a basis for improving animal welfare laws moving forwards. "There can only be one reason to deny animal sentient status, and that is to exploit them"

Petition to UK Government

ADD MY NAME - WE WANT TO Cancel Brexit and Stay In Fully.

We believe that Brexit is the biggest mistake this country could possibly make.  There are so many reasons: 1.  Our kids need to be part of Europe to have a more choices for their future we should not deny them any opportunities 2.  Being part of a bigger market force helps keep our food costs down and gives us high quality. 3.  Businesses will leave the UK  to ensure staying in the EU marketplace. 4.  Jobs, our job security depends on being part of the EU 5.   Business Travel and holidays will become more costly and take longer with borders  6.   Transporting goods both in and out of the UK will become more costly and affect everything we use more or less because Britain manufactures very few products. 7.  We need migrant workers for the NHS, community care and farming, isn't it better to get them from our neighbouring countries. 8.  We are more secure being part of EU. 9.   We have improved our workers rights and standards because of being part of the EU.   10.  We receive grants to help with roads, poverty, environmental projects 11.  Deprived areas of our country get major investment. 12.  The EU is our Biggest Customers for our Goods and Services. 13.  EU helps us by just by being part of a major voice in the world. 14.  Animal welfare rights, got to protect our animals our own government didn't transfer the major protection here of EU law.. 15.  Science and Education benefit from sharing knowledge and ideas. 16.  We can campaign to change EU from within if we want to. If you feel we NEED to stay part of the EU and benefit from being EU Citizen as well as British then please lets get this madness stopped quickly and before we spend too much money on this nonsense.  There is so many better things to be spending time and money on as a country.  Please add your signature now and tell our government to stop Brexit before its too late.
