cancel human rights law, and get out of this e.u monstrous mistake!!!!!!!
Why the contribution is important
To give this country the freedom, and rewards, that the true British deserve. The “so called human rights, seem only to work for illegal immigrants, who are known terrorists, thieves, and gang members. You have only to watch documentaries, or read the national press to see what I mean. All the time, you can see “illegals” given housing, some of them, mansions, that cost thousands of pounds ,in the name of human rights. Benefits should only be paid to people who have paid into this country, i.e. tax, and national insurance . We are a laughing stock. The last government, (and I use the word government, loosly) cut funding to universities, so that HOME students only have very few places, the rest of the places, of which there is many, go to foreign students. Only if you are financially independent, can you get a place in university. Some-one I know of, gained the marks at college, which he was told, that last year, with those very same marks, he would have been able to gain access to university, but now, like the funding,every thing has been changed! The worst thing was, he was told ” It’s a pity you cant go to Africa, for three yearsbecause then, you could have come back to this(his own country of birth) as an overseas university student.
You can’t argue with that. You really can’t. Not because it’s accurate in any way, but because doing so is like volunteering to have your frontal lobe slowly sawn off with a piece of rusty barbed wire.

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.

We want a refund of our Road Tax and Council Tax due to the Government not spending money on grit or the maintenance of roads.by Fed Up Citizen of UK employee
We in the UK are hit with more taxes than almost every county in the developed world, although we have the worst maintained roads in Europe and also when it snows, we are told there is not enough salt/grit for the roads (Road Tax) or even the pavements (Council Tax).
What do we pay the road tax and council tax for?
We the people have had enough, we will not accept any excuses this time.
I agree with Fed Up Citizen! We should always have a storage of salt and grit! Even though the UK only ever gets hit with a snowstorm like this once every, I don’t know, three or four years!
Incidentally, Fed Up Citizen must of had some really cruel parents.

This is a beautifully moronic petition. I love it. It’s like a snapshot of every racist, xenophobic, “Put Broken Britain First” petition I’ve read over the last year.
by Barbara Steffensen
People of this country are already taxed to the hilt. They do not need to pay more tax so that Britain can be seen to be a leader in world events. Charity begins at home. We need to take care of our own British people first before looking at other nations, especially considering the debt we’re already in.

We need this to stop some abusers of the system from receiving an income solely for having children.
We are experiencing a population boom in this country which we can not afford and which is bad for the environment. We need to stop – as a society – effectively incentivising people for having large families. If they wish to have more children than two they should fund them entirely themselves and not expect taxpayers to do so.
I’ve raised counter-points to this argument before. Simply put: What happens to large families who are legitimately in need of actual benefits? Do they just allow the “excess” children to starve to death?

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time to pick at the Reject Bin and see what the British Government had too much common sense to allow the public to sign.
reduce spending on tanks, nuclear weapons, aircraft carriers and so on and instead create an elite ninja force.by Jonathan Hall (rejected)
This elite ninja force (which should be named NINJA: National Interest Ninja Japanese-y Awesomeness) would take on most of the killing people-type jobs the armed forces have to do so they could concentrate on shouting at people.
I believe this would greatly reduce the government’s spending on defence, thus freeing up more money for education and health.

Ready for a smattering of rejected petitions on the submit of racism, xenophobia, and general douchebaggery? No? Well tough, because they’re here.
by Jessica Wilson of Citizen (rejected)
I would like a Law passed to enable this to happen, i am fed up of ethnic races moving to Britain and expecting us to conform to their religion, education etc, if they cant abide by they way we live and our Laws, send them back to where they originally came from.
More after the jump. (more…)

Abolish the BBC and create an English Broadcasting Company (EBC) that fully reflects the views of English Speaking tax payers.by Tim Hunter
We should not have to pay a compulsory TV licence any longer to fund the left-wing biased BBC, which is playing a major part in destroying English culture. The BBC’s existence is yet another example of the English being treated as second class citizens in their own country. The BBC’s presenters are overpaid and they are steeped in London’s trendy elite culture.
The EBC would be a low-cost operation. It would be based outside of London and recruit a totally new set of presenters. These presenters would be paid more modest salaries and would be more reflective of the many different regions of England.
Clearly you have no idea how the television side of the Entertainment Industry works. All those “trendy presenters” you’re complaining about? They’d just move to ITV and Channel Four where they’d actually wind up getting paid more money. Shocking, I know. Also, there’s no such thing as a “low-cost” television operation outside of L!VE TV, and we all know what happened to them.
Also: What the Hell do Wales, Scotland and Ireland do?

The voting age should be reduced to 16 – not just to widen democracy but because it is an anomaly that young people who are old enough to pay tax to the government have no influence in electing that government.
Any ten year-old who’s walked to the local corner shop with a couple of quid in hand planning to buy sweets is technically a tax payer. Your logic is flawed.

I have paid taxes for 42 years and have never been to the South Pacific. I find it incredible that I can sit in North Yorkshire and see the effects of so called “global warming” without going to the far side of the planet.
My petition is to STOP so called “explanatory visits” to anywhere outside the U.K. by members of both houses in relation to this wicked and unproven diagnosis – the prognosis of which is entirely unfounded and unproven.
But if you offer to take Cary with you next time, he wouldn’t mind.

since may 1997 we the british public have been subject to a barrage of bad laws. many a knee-jerk reaction to the plight of an individual citizen, single incident or pressure from minority groups who don’t care who they affect as long as they get their way. mostly ill thought out restricting our freedoms further. lets turn the clock back and get rid of them and be free again.
So basically, you don’t like some of the legislation brought in over the last year, so you think it should all be repealed. Right. Just checking.
Here is an increasing problem with the ePetition website – people assume that just because a Lot Of People have signed something that the Prime Minister is then compelled, nay forced to do it, whatever it may be. That’s not the case. Look at this:
Finally a petition that the Government and Number 10 can agree to.
I have signed up to 6+ ePetitions since the site was created, and when Prime Ministers response comes through on each one, they are brushed off.
So here is one that they can finally agree to.
See? This self-entitled goit is under the impression that just because his name is one of thousands on a petition that the Prime Minister should be doing… something about whatever the petition was about. But y’know what? That’s not how petitions work. It’s not a mandate or a decree. We the public do not have the power to force the Prime Minister to do anything.
One of the most popular petitions on the site is this one demanding that the NHS stop using 0845, 0870 and other such “fixed rate” phone numbers. Yes, lots of people have signed it because in their tiny little minds they think that, hey, why should I pay to speak to my hospital on the phone? They don’t stop to think about where that money actually goes, and what it actually funds. They don’t particularly care whether or not a hospital gets new beds or operating theatres (unless, of course, they’re the ones who have to go into hospital at which point they feel entitled to complain about everything they get that they don’t actually pay for). All they’re concerned with is saving a few quid on their phone bills.
So you see, Mr Golby, just because a lot of people want a thing to be so does not mean that it is the Right Way of Doing Things. There are an alarming number of people in the UK who want to see a cessation of all immigration and who, going one step further, want to see all immigrants deported. Because they’re wankers. Does that make it right? Does that mean that if a petition were to be started up asking for all immigration to cease (and there are a few of them) that gets a significant number of signatures that Gordon Brown is compelled to stop all immigration? No, it doesn’t. Because that’s not what a petition is, you zebra’s rectum.
