Petition to UK Government
Theresa May to resign & call election this autumn
Left wing parties took over 52% of the vote at the general election, yet two right wing parties took more than half the seats - the Conservatives and the DUP. The right wing have formed a coalition government with Theresa May as Prime Minister. May has clung to power by bribing the DUP to the tune of £1.5 billion. The DUP have agreed to vote for austerity in England, Scotland & Wales, and in return, the Conservatives have ended austerity in N. Ireland. This agreement violates the principle of neutrality in Northern Ireland, jeopardising the peace process, and is not fair or democratic. Why should May be allowed to use our money as a bribe, just so she can cling to power? Why should the rest of the UK fund N. Ireland's services, but not our own? Why should May be allowed to put innocent lives at risk by provoking the Republican movement? The coalition should surely represent the majority, and given that Theresa May has failed so catastrophically in the general election, she should do the right thing and resign. The British people have rejected hard right politics. We have rejected austerity. We have rejected hard Brexit. We have rejected Theresa May. We demand a second general election in the autumn of 2017 so we can choose a government that represents the will of the people.
Petition to Theresa May MP
THERESA MAY - RESIGN NOW
Theresa May, you have made a mockery of this country and this election. YOU called this election because you wanted to strengthen your own hand. You failed. YOU wanted to increase your seats to have the extra power.You have not done this. YOU called this election to prove you were strong and stable. You are NOT. YOU have deceived the british public, and now is the time to go. YOUR behaviour is unacceptable. If you form a coalition of chaos with the DUP then you will be the biggest hypocrite in politics. EUROPE WILL BE LAUGHING AT US DO THE RIGHT THING AND GO NOW. Please share this far and wide, and make the establishment realise that we will no longer accept their behaviour.
Petition to UK Parliament
Theresa May to resign as PM
As we all know, on the 8th of June 2017 Theresa May lost the majority party vote in the snap election she decided to pull in her arrogant pursuit to undermine Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party - which ultimately failed miserably and backfired on her. Instead of doing as she said and stepping down, she decided instead to form a coalition with the DUP who are notorious for their anti-human rights beliefs and policies. I for one am totally against this, this union will completely destroy our country and everything that we as young people voted to fight against. Long story short we want May out and Corbyn in. VOTE FOR CHANGE!!
Petition to UK Parliament, UK Electoral commission
Hold a second general election in 2017
The UK did not choose a coalition between the DUP and the Conservatives. Britain has been left confused and shocked at the outcome of the election. We believe a second vote is the best way forward in order to achieve a first past the post government for the sake of Britain. How can a coalition government, with such different interests at heart, give us a good deal on brexit and continue to run the country for the next 4 years? The Tories have a terrible track record with coalitions, with the Liberal Democrats claiming that they had been stabbed in the back by the Tories. Is this really the government we want at such a precarious time for the UK? Sign this petition to tell the government that this is not what the UK wants or needs.
Petition to Jeremy Corbyn MP, Tom Watson MP
Jeremy Corbyn MP must apologise to the Venezuelan people for backing the Maduro regime
Socialist Venezuela is teetering on the edge of both total economic collapse and outright dictatorship. The economy has contracted by a third since 2014, and is projected to shrink by another 12% this year. Inflation stands at over 700% and basic shortages are common. Meanwhile the Government has arrested two key opposition leaders, and at least 125 people taking part in street protests have been killed since early April. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is a longstanding supporter of Venezuela's authoritarian socialist regime, under both President Maduro and his predecessor Hugo Chavez. In 2014 Corbyn offered his 'congratulations' to Maduro on Venezuelan state TV and in June 2015 stated the Venezuelan regime's record was 'a cause for celebration'. Previously he welcomed Hugo Chavez to the UK and gave him a generous tribute following his death in 2013. Considering the widespread economic suffering and political persecution taking place Corbyn should formally apologise to the people of Venezuela for his historic support of Maduro and Hugo Chavez, and demand the immediate release of imprisoned opposition leaders. This petition is being organised by The Backbencher magazine (http://thebackbencher.co.uk/).
Petition to Iain McNicol
Labour Party Northern Ireland to be given the right to stand candidates in NI.
Labour Party Northern Ireland (LPNI) are recognised by Labour Party as a CLP (Constituency Labour Party) only, so therefore are not afforded the same rights, funding and support equated with full regional status like Scottish Labour and Welsh Labour. With 3000+ members we are the biggest party in Northern Ireland in terms of membership (unconfirmed) yet we are not afforded the same rights as Scottish Labour and Welsh Labour to stand candidates in their respective regions. Why should we have the same rights as Scotland and Wales Labour? Welfare reforms agreed on and implemented by the mainstream parties in NI have gone politically unchallenged in NI. People in NI are suffering from Tory austerity voted on and implemented by SF/DUP Executive are not effectively represented politically in NI. Health service in NI is suffering from ward closures, A&E closures, GP and front line services in crisis, are all politically going unchallenged in NI. Cuts to social care services in NI are not effectively politically challenged in NI. It has been suggested by senior people in The Labour Party that we should support/join and/or vote for our "sister party" SDLP. But many of us in LPNI feel this is morally and politically wrong because firstly SDLP still promote the continuing criminalisation of women to abort a pregnancy in Northern Ireland which goes against Labour Party principles of gender equality. Secondly many of us in LPNI feel that SDLP do not appeal to or represent working class people in Northern Ireland, they do not have the ear of nor do they represent many of the trade unions in Northern Ireland and only tend to appeal to middle class nationalists. Lastly SDLP are a nationalist party so have an overriding agenda of the re-unification of Ireland whereas LPNI only agenda is gender, sexual orientation, race and social equality in Northern Ireland. So please sign the petition but also share it far and wide on your social media.

Keep Personal Insults, Attacks and Character Assassination Out of British Politics
The General Election 2017 witnessed unprecedented, almost American-like, levels of personal insults and character assassination. While some newspapers have always resorted to such base tactics, what was alarming this year was how senior UK leaders and politicians (including senior cabinet ministers) resorted to character assassination rather than focus on policy. Prime Minister Theresa May for example claimed that Jeremy Corbyn would go ‘alone and naked’ into Brexit negotiations. Instead of being shocked by such language, her audience laughed and normalised that level of personal insults and denigration of another political leader. While people may disagree on policy, Parliament should ensure the following: a) Personal insults, attacks and character assassination should have no place in British politics and public discourse. b) Political leaders need to be mindful that their words and public statements influence many people either for good or ill. c) Politicians and the media should be role models for decency in our public conversation and avoid giving the impression to general public that it is acceptable to insult, vituperate, heckle, insult, ridicule and attack people with a differing viewpoint .
Petition to Sajid Javid MP (Communities Secretary)
Nicholas Paget-Brown - Leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council - Please RESIGN now.
We are all heartbroken and angry about the tragedy at Grenfell Tower. Cllr Nicholas Paget-Brown, as the head of Kensington and Chelsea Council, made most of the decisions and is responsible for the lack of care and attention for the residents in his Borough. He should resign immediately and be held to account for his actions. I spent a lot of time in the area in my teens and loved the fact that people from all races and religions lived there and all got on and looked out for eachother. I notice that the Chief Executive of RBKC Nicholas Holgate has resigned. It is now also time for Nicholas Paget-Brown to go too.
