I’ll leave the discussion of this charming little petition in your capable hands, folks:
by Robin Rawlings
As a tax payer I fed up seeing my neighbours who don’t work watching their 40″ plasma tv’s, I can’t afford one and I work and pay tax so why should lazy people contributing nothing to the country get more than hard working people. We should force them to work if they don’t work, by building workhouses and then sending them to workhouses.
by John Turner
The purpose of this petition is to encourage people to comply with the tax laws of the United Kingdom and make it possible for fellow citizens to notify the appropriate authorities if they feel that fellow citizens are illegally avoiding paying tax that is due.
“Dear Gordon, I’d like to pry into other people’s shit…”

Seriously consider starting to limit population growth in the UK (but of course not as extreme as china).by Matthew Cater
The human population is now far too big for the planet to support us and the population is growing faster and faster and faster.
The goverment are in a good position to solve this problem, that has been prooven by china. However i am not suggesting that we say you are only aloud one child- that would be ridiculous. I am merly suggesting that the should be some kind of tax benefits for couples who have less children and mabey limit the amount of children people can have to 2 or 3.
please sign otherwise we will bring about our own extinction and thats just silly.
Yes. Extinction is silly.

The current position at UK border points is that visitors who are allowed to enter the UK who have had to apply for a Visa are not then actively counted back out again when they are required to leave. For example if they were to overstay their visit nobody would actively go to seek them, or even be aware they hadn’t left the country.This effectively means that once they are admitted they could stay indefinitely. The USA has a proper system in place for all visitors who enter their borders with visa’s and they have, as a result, much better control of their Borders and Immigration Issues.
You’ve never actually been to America, have you?

We’ve all seen it on the news: a Media celebrity has a baby and then gives it a name that can, at best, be considered ‘unusual’. For example, the Beckhams calling their son Brooklyn or Katie Price calling her daughter Princess Tiaamii. Whilst the names might seem to be a good idea at the time and suit their bohemian lifestyle, the parents, perhaps, forget that the child is going to carry that name for the rest of their life. By all means, call your dog Fifi but not your child… Of course, this is then imitated by certain members of the population who emulate what they see in celebrity gossip magazines and give their own children ‘unfortunate’ names. The purpose of this petition is to allow Registrars to refuse to accept names for children that may be considered frivolous or otherwise inappropriate.
Oh fuck off, will you? Yes, celebrities give their kids ridiculous names. So what? What is considered a “normal name” (as you so call them in the URL for this petition) shifts from year to year, decade to decade. There was a time when “Beryl” was probably considered a normal name, and now it’s an old person’s name. Who’s to say we won’t all be calling our kids Princess Tiaamii in the future?
I mean we won’t, obviously, but… y’know, it’s not the Registrar’s place to decide what name you can and cannot give to your child.

The ban of this piece of equipment will stop infringement of peoples privacy and stop the use of them to record violence for uploading to social networking sites, and sites of the type of youtube. There is no requirement for them and their ban will help stop bullying and other violent acts deemed fun to post on the internet.
But buying regular cameras? Oh, that’s still okay. Like this Kodak Zi8 HD Pocket Video Camera with support for SD cards of up to 32MB and fully integrated YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo uploading, a snip at £140.93.

After being on holiday on the east coast I saw many of these cash machines in family amusements arcades. I saw on many occasions people taking out £100 at a time then going into to the £500 Jackpot area and another arcade offering to cash peoples work cheques. If this is not encouraging gambling I don’t know what is.
One could argue that having ATMs anywhere encourages gambling, because there’s nothing stopping you taking out a wedge of money and then walking, or perhaps driving or catching a bus, to your favourite betting house. So, y’know, might be better to get rid of ATMs altogether.

Parents do not realise the danger of letting children use toilets alone,vulnerable adults, youths and children should be protected when using toilets. Our open,liberal society encourages perverts and paedophiles to use these facilities as meetings, matings and worse rape or abuse children.
Lovely. Just when you think Britain has had enough of the whole “Nanny State” thing, someone like Thomas Bowman comes along and tries to make the Nanny State even Nannier.

What would we do without the increasingly mad Keith Jones, eh? I have no idea what he looks like, but I imagine a curmudgeonly old man, maybe with a ridiculously ornate moustache. His hair is thinning. The only footwear he’s worn for the last twelve years are a pair of tartan slippers his grandchildren bought him one Christmas partially as a joke. He has only the vaguest of ideas how the real world works and he thinks he’s figured out how to solve all of its problems.
And it’s through brilliant ideas like these.
What these people are allowed to do is not ‘get married’. What they do is covered by a civil agreement and it should be illegal to use the term ‘marriage’ to describe the condition.
Let’s make it illegal to use a word that means a thing it means. There’s no way that can lead down a dangerous path at all.
Failure to support the indigenous population on this point will SURELY put the final nail in the coffin of Gordon Brown and his scottish cronies on the cabinet.
I actually think this petition would have been approved were he not such a cocky gobshite in the descriptive text. Not to say I support the petition, but Keith has a wonderful way of just being hilariously self-righteous that means that most of his petitions get rejected. I bet he thinks he’s Make A Stand, too. Tch.
I shudder to think what would happen if Keith Jones ever found this website. I imagine that the sky would crack asunder. Or something.

When Immigration/Police officers find illigal immigrants/assylum seekers they should be micro chiped. At present while they are being investigated they are freed from custody and requested to report to a particular police station on a regular basis. They never do. This way the system can keep better records on how many we have in our country at any given time and know where they are if/when deportation is required.
And remember to spay or neuter your illegal immigrants.

We need to temporarily stop large public gatherings of people to slow the advance of swine flu and to lighten the burden put upon hospitals, doctors and nurses who are struggling to contain this very serious situation.
I see nothing wrong with this suggestion. It is a sensible, level-headed idea that I am sure wiuahahahaha sorry no I couldn’t keep that going. You should’ve seen your face, though. Priceless.
A register of everyone who recieves benefits should be created & made available to everyone who pays to maintain the benefit system.There are far too many people defrauding the system.We are encouraged to”rat on a rat”.How do we identify a “rat” if we do not Know who is claiming fraudulently? A register would help identify “RATS”.There are lots of deserving people who could be helped more if we were not wasting money on scroungers.Please sign this petition & help get England back on track.
There’s a brilliant idea – claim benefits, have your personal details listed on a publicly available database! Wait, no. Hang on.
