Petition to Mr Andrew Tyrie MP, Chichester District Council, Pro-Force Recruitment & West Sussex County Council

Say NO! To housing hundreds of workers in disused South Downs - picturesque East Wittering

Putting hundreds of any kind of large groups of people, (it just happens to be eastern European agricultural workers this time mostly male) into a rural village (Bracklesham Bay) is a ludicrous decision. This is NOT a racist petition and will not support any racist comments on here. Mark Marriott from Pro-Force who is responsible for these workers claims this is “large scale scaremongering through untruths and borderline racism”. This is just a cheap shot to play the race card as these workers are not from the UK. There would have been the same issues had they been a large scale group of young males from the UK. The facts are they are already creating an intimidating atmosphere in the village by forming large groups sitting around on verges smoking and being thrown out of local pubs. There is simply nothing for this amount of young males to do in this village. What this petition is about is having a VOICE. If this had been a planning application we would have been notified and been able to have our say, it is simply that this village can't cope especially in the summer months when it is gridlocked sometime seeing 8 mile tailbacks to West Wittering Beach. Also our community doesn't have the infrastructure as well as services (Doctors/Dentists) to deal with this not to mention the impact on people living nearby. What has annoyed local residents the most though is the way it has been handled by Seawood Properties, Pro--force recruitment and Cre8 property services and they should be held accountable for this issue. A similar idea was stopped in 2015 when the Earnley Concourse was muted to house a similar amount and that petition reached over 2000 signatures. This idea needs to be defended by all local residents.

Petition to Sadiq Khan, The Flag Institute, Parliamentary Flags & Heraldry Committee.

A New Flag for all of London (Greater London)

Dear London, A City flag, whats the point... Many cities around the world have a city flag, cities like Amsterdam, Berlin and Chicago, even UK cities like Birmingham, all have great flags. These cities all have a symbolic piece of fabric that represents both their people and the city they live in, made for the rest of the world to see. People are in many cases more proud of their city flag more than of their national flag, due to the fact that they are so personal. Flags don't just appear on municipal buildings, they can be found on anything from a trendy t-shirt, to beach towel. Obviously, what we need is a really well-designed flag, one with a simple yet symbolic design that makes all Londoners proud to be who they are.  Why we need a new one... Greater London does not have an official flag. Although the 'City of London' does have a flag, the problem is that its 80% just England's flag (and that is plain unoriginal, plus we already have a flag for that). The closest thing to a City Flag for London is the old flag of 'The County of London', that is so badly designed you probably don't even know what it looks like (Google it...then see Amsterdam's flag and Chicago's flag and you will see London's problem).  This TED talk by American designer Roman Mars is why city flags are so important. Click Here That being said, designing a Flag is one thing, designing a good one that works for everyone is another. But with a city as creative as London, we won't be short of options, especially if we have a flag design competition. I am simply asking for a new flag design, to bring all Londoners under one banner. A logo for the brand that is 'London'. This flag should be so personal to all Londoners and the city itself, that it will appear all everywhere, as an extension of the London identity. The Plan... With enough support, I hope to bring this to the attention of the Mayor of London and the Flag Institute to formally recognise a flag for the city, a flag that can be flown all over London for people to see and enjoy.  There are bigger problems in the world, but we can still make things better one little step at a time, that is what designing something is all about. The small changes that make life that little bit nicer. All the best, Albie.
