Fund research for childhood cancers with the worst survival rates

12 kids in the UK are diagnosed with cancer daily. 1 in 5 will die within 5 years, often of the deadliest types like DIPG (brainstem cancer) - fatal on diagnosis & other cancers on relapse. Yet there has been little, or no, funding for research into these cancers and little, or no, progress.

Grant a People's Vote if Parliament rejects the EU Withdrawal Agreement

Gov Responded - 5 Feb 2019 Debated on - 14 Jan 2019 View Alex Norris's petition debate contributions

closed 1 year, 8 months ago

The Prime Minister has negotiated an EU withdrawal agreement. However, it is clear from resignations and interviews that the deal will not pass Parliament. As no credible alternative has been proposed, the public must be allowed to vote on whether to accept this deal or to remain in the EU.

To have a second referendum on Britain leaving the EU

It's no secret that a vast amount of people who voted to leave the EU didn't realise what they were voting for.

The Leave campaign said that leaving would create new trade deals, strengthen the economy and public services and reduce the number of incoming immigrants. But this is not happening.

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.

Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019.

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.

Theresa May has failed to negotiate a Brexit deal that is acceptable to Parliament and the British people.
The Withdrawal Agreement does not deliver the Brexit we voted for.
It is clear that the EU is not going to offer anything else, particularly regarding the backstop

STOP BREXIT

It's so desperately simple. The Government's standard response to these kinds of petitions is "The British people voted to leave the EU and the government respect that decision". BUT, the government themselves DO NOT KNOW the outcome of that decision, so how can they possibly respect it???

Stop Brexit if parliament rejects the deal

Brexit is not worth it. A hard border in Ireland will destroy the Good Friday Agreement, meds are being stockpiled and there's news that a contract has been given to a company with no ferries, and the army is on standby in the event of no-deal too. Stop Brexit if MPs vote to reject the PM's deal.

Every year fireworks are set off unnecessarily.
Fireworks are a nuisance to the public. They scare animals, young children and people with a phobia.
They injure thousands of people every year.
They cause damage to buildings, vehicles,emergancy vehicles etc.
Lastly Kids are STILL being sold them.

Allow Premier League and Championship football clubs to introduce safe standing

Gov Responded - 3 May 2018 Debated on - 25 Jun 2018 View Alex Norris's petition debate contributions

closed 2 years, 7 months ago

Safe Standing offers a much safer alternative to fans who wish to stand, rather than sit at football matches. After the highly successful introduction to rail seating at Celtic Park, as well as numerous Bundesliga clubs, many football fans feel that laws preventing standing areas should be relaxed.
