Northern Irish MLA’s continue to be paid around £35k a year, despite not having a sitting assembly in over two years and refusing to attend negotiations. This is unacceptable, MLA salaries should cease until a negotiation has been reached and a sitting Northern Irish Assembly has been restored.The Government responsed to this petition on 5th March 2019 (View Full Response)
Do not prosecute the military for its work in Northern Ireland. Our military should be excused all criminal investigations after a period of time.The Government responsed to this petition on 1st April 2019 (View Full Response)
Our soldiers are not currently immune from prosecution. This is wrong. All British soldiers who served in Northern Ireland should have legal immunity from prosecution.The Government responsed to this petition on 11th June 2018 (View Full Response)
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.
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.The Government responsed to this petition on 14th December 2018 (View Full Response)
In 1986 the UK government ratified the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). It gives rights to UK women & obligates government to advance women's lives, recognising past inequalities & remedying them. Its provisions must become part of domestic law.The Government responsed to this petition on 20th November 2018 (View Full Response)
The British parliament recently voted to legalise same sex marriage and abortion in Northern Ireland by a rather substantial majority. This was a vote nothing to do with the Northern Irish people and gave the people of Northern Ireland no say. Many people in NI and the UK are certainly outraged.The Government responsed to this petition on 4th September 2019 (View Full Response)
