Removing them will only penalize the poorest old age pensioners, many who rely on their television for company and their main source of entertainment.

Public inquiry into the bias in the BBC

The impartiality of the BBC is in question and needs addressing so as to protect its charter

The quality of BBC programmes do not reflect the price of the TV license. It is far too expensive for the majority of people and should be abolished.

Ban the use of all non-recyclable and unsustainable food packaging

Today the Earth is at a crisis point due to our plastic consumption, and as a result, people in the UK are more willing than ever to engage in recycling. Yet so much food packaging remains completely, frustratingly unrecyclable. Let's aim for the UK to lead the world with a 100% recycling rate.

The Government is not going to achieve a satisfactory outcome from its negotiations with the EU.
We should walk away now.
No Deal is better than a bad deal.

It's so desperately simple. The Government's standard response to these kinds of petitions is "The British people voted to leave the EU and the government respect that decision". BUT, the government themselves DO NOT KNOW the outcome of that decision, so how can they possibly respect it???

Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019.

We are wasting Billions of pounds of taxpayers money trying to negotiate in a short space of time. Leaving the EU in March 2019 will allow the UK good time to negotiate more efficiently. The EU will be more eager to accept a deal on our terms having lost a major partner.

To have a second referendum on Britain leaving the EU

Debated on - 14 Jan 2019 View Graham Stringer's petition debate contributions

closed 5 months, 1 week ago

It's no secret that a vast amount of people who voted to leave the EU didn't realise what they were voting for.

The Leave campaign said that leaving would create new trade deals, strengthen the economy and public services and reduce the number of incoming immigrants. But this is not happening.

Grant a People's Vote if Parliament rejects the EU Withdrawal Agreement

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 14 Jan 2019 View Graham Stringer's petition debate contributions

closed 4 months, 3 weeks ago

The Prime Minister has negotiated an EU withdrawal agreement. However, it is clear from resignations and interviews that the deal will not pass Parliament. As no credible alternative has been proposed, the public must be allowed to vote on whether to accept this deal or to remain in the EU.

Theresa May has failed to negotiate a Brexit deal that is acceptable to Parliament and the British people.
The Withdrawal Agreement does not deliver the Brexit we voted for.
It is clear that the EU is not going to offer anything else, particularly regarding the backstop

Brexit is not worth it. A hard border in Ireland will destroy the Good Friday Agreement, meds are being stockpiled and there's news that a contract has been given to a company with no ferries, and the army is on standby in the event of no-deal too. Stop Brexit if MPs vote to reject the PM's deal.

Genuine leaders' debates took place in 2010, but in the next two elections didn't happen. Amend election law to make party leaders take part in a televised debate.

There is a growing band of people that want to reverse the result of the democratic vote of this country to leave the European Union and are calling for a second referendum. This is mainly by the people that lost the vote two years ago and cannot accept the democratic vote of the majority decision.

If there is no agreement by the deadline for reaching agreement with the EU during the talks then brexit should be stopped as leaving with no deal will be very bad for businesses and for the Irish border issue and for EU citizens living here.

In response to the problem of an ever-increasing amount of plastic waste polluting our environment, we need to make supermarkets offer an option of no packaging or eco-friendly packaging for each item of fresh fruit and vegetables they sell.

Every single person who works in public services needs and deserve a pay rise. It’s time for the pay cap to be scrapped, for the government to provide additional funding for public sector pay and for employers to put public sector workers pay up now.
