Pensioners who are 80 years old are supposed to get £400 Winter Fuel Allowance.However,those pensioners whose 80th birthday falls after the 21st September 2008 will get £150 less(the same as 60-79 year olds)They will therefore have to wait until their 81st birthday before they get the full £400.That is assuming that they survive this winter on the reduced payment.
This is totally unfair,and I urge the government to give the full £400 to all pensioners whose 80th birthday falls within that year.Give Pensioners Justice,the least this country can do is to give them ALL enough money to keep warm during the winter.Please support my petition.
Justice (n). Defining a cutoff in December instead of September.
Obesity, loutish behaviour, drunkenness, knife crime, …, and even terrorism are symptoms of a system that denies justice to the ordinary citizen.
A sign of this is when, for example, a middle manager at a new university is sacked for whistle blowing. Despite attempts at obtaining justice through ‘normal channels’ it is denied. The Prime Minister even ignoring a petition signed by family, friends, past students and past staff of the institution in question as well as a number of current and past local councillors. What are less well placed observers to make of such a system?
We call on the Prime Minister to ensure that real justice, rather than mere law, rules in the United Kingdom. As a first step towards this we ask him to have a Royal Commission on ‘Justice not Just Law’.
Justice (n). A healthy physique.
There are very real concerns that if this becomes law Christians could be found guilty of ‘inciting hatred’ towards gay people for simply saying that engaging in same sex sexual activity is ‘sinful’ and contrary to God’s Word. At the very least the new offence will make people a lot more nervous about openly reflecting on their faith based view of sexuality.
The former Home Secretary, Lord Waddington has tabled a free speech amendment to the Bill which, if accepted, should help prevent Christians finding themselves in trouble with the new law for simply expressing a faith based view of sexuality.
It was expected that this vote would come up on Wednesday 23rd April 2008 but the Government have just announced that they will extend tonight’s sitting (Monday 21st) to midnight which means it will be reached very late tonight.
This is very bad because the later it comes up the less likely it is that those in favour (who tend to be older and not given to late nights) will stay.
Indeed many people won’t be there at all because they are expecting the vote on Wednesday!
Justice (n). The act of prioritising irrational prejudice over the rights of others.
There is one lawyer, in particular, who frequently appears in the papers as having acted in this way for celebrity clients. I feel, strongly, that if someone has committed an offence, especially one which may cause INJURY OR DEATH to an innocent victim, it is totally wrong for this person to pay a lawyer to exploit a loophole in the law in order to escape punishment for this. (There should, of course, BE no such loopholes but that’s for another petition).
Justice (n). A punishment under law for upholding the law as written.
Whether placing an order via telephone, or a website, we, (the ordinary British public) are subjected with "add on’s" (extra selling).
Apparently, the poor staff who have to offer these items are DOWNGRADED if they do not meet their targets by the companies they work for!
It’s not only unfair on our extra telephone bill, but also on the poor staff who work for these "GREEDY" companies!
There has to be be some kind of compliance to protect both parties.
Justice (n). Shorter, more convenient telephone calls.
