Have a petition. Hey, I’m feeling generous – have three.
by Aleksands Halamins (rejected)I am sick and tired of teachers using “sick pay” advantages not to come and teach at school. Moreover, we as a taxpayer finance these sick off days and instead we have to pay the supply teacher as well as the teacher who is “ill”. Making most state school teachers self-employed will make them realize that that’s the way it goes: if you don’t come to school to teach – you wont get paid, as simple as that! Making the teachers self-employed will have its own disadvantages, however as a self-employed you will pay less tax and also you could make claims. Making the teachers self-employed will improve their attendance. Furthermore, this decision will 100% improve education in BRITAIN!
Yeah! Teachers don’t come to school at all! All they do is lounge about at home watching Diagnosis Murder and raking in the cash. This’ll teach ‘em.
tell the electorate why he should not go the say way as the North Korean politician who has recently been executed for causing a financial disaster in his country.by keith jones of taxpaying pensioner with no political nor religious affiliation (rejected)Gordon Brown has created the worst financial situation in the history of people living on this island. There has to be some merit in considering what horrendous fate should befall somebody who has done more damage to this country than any other single person, living or dead.
Keith Jones there, politely asking the government to think about cutting Gordon Brown’s head off.
by Mrs Theresa Thomas (rejected)This is an official petition to have Frankie Boyle return to the quiz show ‘Mock The Week’. Frankie is an asset to the quiz show and British lives are not the same with out him.
The government have officially rejected your official petition, because it’s officially crap.

by Mark Johannsen of Myself (rejected)Banks, Building Societies and Utility Companies can submit what they like to Credit Rating Agencies who then have the ability to sell information about individuals and companies. This could be as the result of a dispute or late payment. These bodies can submit information unchecked and not available to be scrutinised by the person or body they are dambing. Yet if you kill a 2 year old boy and throw his body on a railway track it is in the public interest to hide the killers identity. The crime these two boys commited was truly horrific, they were found guilty in a court. Big business can ruin people without a trial or any cross examination. 2 things need to be done .1 expose the murders protect them if necessary from vigilanties but don’t let them hide and 2 before companies put dambing information on Credit Reports the information should be scrutinised and the person accused should have a chance to put their point across.
There’s a lot going on in this petition, and it’s all shit.

It’s one thing to ask the British government to step in and help out during an industrial strike (which they can’t do anyway), but turning it into a political statement about last year’s bank bailout? Wow, Jeff. You’s a dick.

All banks should be shut down, and the current monetary system replaced with debt free money backed up by gold and/or other metals and minerals. People would no longer be slaves to the banks through the debt created by money.
You can’t have money without debt, you clown. There’s always going to be someone who owes someone else something.

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.

I think it is unjust and unfair that we have no choice but to pay a television licence to the BBC but they only produce 4 episodes of the massively popular soap ‘EastEnders’ per week. This is probably the second most popular BBC broadcasting after the news. It is almost unanimous national opinion that there should be a new episode aired on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, where there currently is not.
Unjustified self-entitlement – it’s what Britain does best. (more…)

This is a perfect example of a petition posted by someone who has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about. Behold!
make the Bank of England the sole creator of money in our economy and to stop the commercial banks from creating money.by Rev Dr Richard Rodgers FRCS
At present we allow commercial banks the huge privilege of creating money out of nothing as their own property for their own benefit. You and I can’t do it. Why let the banks do it? They do it by issuing loans of money which didn’t exist until the borrower signs a promise to pay it back. Then the bank sells that agreement to a dealer for real money up front. We don’t need to depend on banks for our nation’s money supply. Let’s make the Bank of England, acting as a public servant, the sole creator of new money in our land. Then our money would be an asset of the nation as a whole not the property of commercial banks. This practice caused the credit crunch. Banks lent to people who couldn’t repay because it wasn’t costing them much in the first place. It’s why bankers get bonuses. The problem isn’t bonuses. It’s the activity that the bonuses encourage ie getting people to borrow. Don’t nationalise the banks. Let them compete but don’t let them create money out of nothing as they do now.

Halifax sent a letter to us to accept the new overdraft charges. Many people and children are on poverty people or on income support or students cannot afford to pay up to £31 pounds per month with these new overdraft fees. It is very difficult for them to repay overdraft facility or to pay with low credits!
Especially on current difficult economics situation does not help.
In letter says
* if you use an arranged overdraft up to £2500, we’ll charge you £1 per day * if you use an arranged overdraft over £2500, we’ll charge you £2 per day * if you use an unarranged overdraft, we’ll charge you £5!
For deaf customers, some halifax branches refuse to provide sign language interpreters – extremely difficult for them to communicate with Halifax Building Society, now Halifax expect them to pay new charges! New Terms and Conditions without Sign Language Access or translation!
It is short notice to ask us to accept the changes on December 6th!
Short notice? You’ve been given a month and a half – that’s plenty of time to set up an account with a new bank.
As 43.4% Shareholders in Lloyds Banking Group should the government allow Halifax’s new Overdraft charges.by Mike Horwath
Halifax has recently informed customer that they will be charging a flat ‘fee’ for the use of authorised overdrafts. This equates to £1 per day the customer is using an overdraft below £2500 and £2 over £2500. This is a move by the bank to unfairly charge people who are in financially weaker situations and as such the Government should step in to stop the bank undertaking this change due to come into effect on the 6th December. The interest breaks down as such:
£0.01 Overdraft: 3,650,000% £100 Overdraft: 365% £100 Overdraft: 73% £500 Overdraft: 36.5%
This is clearly very high rates of interest and most people with overdrafts between £1 and a £1000 will see a minimum of double the previous charges.
Halifax literature claims this is a fairer way for customers to understand charges; it appears to be a move by the bank to make excessive profits from the less fortunate who live within overdrafts or are not able to clear thier overdraft, such as post graduates, the unemployed, the less wealthy. The Government must take action.
You think it’s a “very high rate of interest”? Well, I’d agree with you if it weren’t for the fact that this isn’t a loan. It is, let’s be blunt, spending the bank’s money instead of your own. Authorized overdraft or not, that’s always a bad idea. One could argue that’s it’s to deter people from “living within overdrafts” and to get their finances sorted out, which I applaud.
If you want to avoid these fees wouldn’t it make sense to get a loan for the amount you’re overdrawn by and deposit it into your bank account? That way you’d have a rate of interest which is lower than the one you’ve come up with.
Moving income support to fortnightly is like anyone to choose to pay their direct debits a further month in arrears to allow them to pocket the difference. It is not fair to put the bill on those who were not even in the bankers’ casinos to subsidise the cost of recession. Few on IS even put someone else’s money into accommodation to distort the housing market. It is always better to smooth flows of funds. In this we move to abolish bank holidays and weekends for 24x7x365.25 computer uptime to the 9th 9. A regressive move to fortnightly benefit payments is potentially another 10p tax issue?
“I think benefits should be paid a week in arrears, for this list of quite ridiculous reasons.”
“Well, I’ll be honest with you, there’s no logical reason to do s–”
“Also we should abolish bank holidays and weekends.”
“Right. Right. Okay. Right. That’s… that’s actually pretty stupid, isn’t it? And it doesn’t have anything to do with your initial request.”
“We can leave the computers switched on all the time!”
“…I’m… I’m sure we can. Er. Could… could you leave now? Please? You’re unsettling the more nervous Ministers.”
I especially love how he throws in the bailout as if that makes any sense. “I own one millionth of a percent of this bank! How dare you treat me this way‽ Don’t you know who I am‽“

Don’t let the fox gaurd the chickens. giving more power to the banking elite will only end in a “bank of the world”, which we will have to pay carbon taxes on every part of our lifes.
That’s a pretty big logical leap to make there, Craig. What are you basing this on?
