E-Petition Picks March 2007

Here’s a selection of current e-petitions (for the Prime Minister) I think are worth bringing to your attention:

“We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to …”

“… ensure those of us with invisible disabilities and illnesses are given a fair deal” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Invisibleillness/ 

 “… get the Health Service and medical profession to accept the WHO classification of ME/CFS as an organic neurological disorder and not as a psychosocial syndrome” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/ME-is-real/

 “… Stop proposed restrictions regarding photography in public places” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Photography/

“… bring pressure on Microsoft to stop them overcharging the UK for its Vista Operating System” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/VistaOvercharge/ 

 “… to support the National Union of Students’ campaign for accessible healthcare which calls on the government to exempt students from charges for prescriptions, dental care and eye tests.” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/studenthealth/

There’s many others.

Others which caught my attention but where personally I need more consideration, or part of the further information doesn’t quite sit with me:

“… prevent the BBC from making its iPlayer on-demand television service available to Windows users only, and instruct the corporation to provide its service for other operating systems also” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/iplayer/ 

“… Make women’s sanitary ware exempt from V.A.T” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Periods-VATfree/

“… Overturn the National Blood Service (NBS) ban stopping Gay and Bi (G&B) Men giving Blood.” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/bloodban/ 

“… Encourage people to cycle by removing VAT on bicycles, tricycles and human powered vehicles and on all cycling parts and spares.” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/NoVATonBikes/ 

“… Stop making charities pay VAT” http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Charities/
