  2. Caroline Lucas created BASIC INCOME EDM 974. Jonathan Reynolds similarly supports basic income. John McDonnell said Labour are considering basic income. Basic income trials are set to take place in Canada, Finland, and Holland. The time is ripe for UK Parliament to debate EDM 974 BASIC INCOME. That this House notes the growing crisis of low pay and precarity in a labour market increasingly characterised by casualised forms of employment that offer little in the way of pay, predictable hours or long-term security; further notes the evident inability of our bureaucratically costly social se
  3. On Tuesday 5 January, Mike Kane MP will propose a debate to bring in a bill to amend the Mesothelioma Act 2014. The idea is to improve access to pensions and/or compensation for veterans who suffer mesothelioma as a result of service. This discussion will be a Ten Minute Rule Motion. Watch the debate on ParliamentTV from approximately 3:30pm.
  4. I am not in favour of stopping any debates and to allow freedom of speech. But there have been a number of threads where debates have become silly arguments. The threads then get closed after they have run their course. People are entitled to opinions, even if you don't agree with them. If you don't agree, then just post a counter argument or ignore. No point attacking someone for their opinion, as you are not likely to change their minds. I am not sure political threads should be encouraged on CAG. It is principally a consumer advice site. The Bear Garden was i think intended f
  5. Hi there, My partner and I moved into a privately rented flat 2 months ago. We really get on with our landlady and are good tenants. The property is always spotless, bills are always paid on time and we really do look after our home. When we moved, we were asked by the letting agent if we had a pet. (At the time) the answer was a no. They confirmed that their 'standard' clause was 'no pets', however there is a clause that states we could have a pet with the landlord's written consent (and this can be broken at any time). I called the letting agent as my partner and I have dec
  6. I have always paid my TV licence by quarterly direct debit. I have decided to pay now by payment card, telling them i am unemployed. Phoning them up, they tried continually to get my phone number for which i was not accommodating in that request My licence is paid up to the last day in April, they are adamant my first payment card payment has to be made on the 25 April, yet i have paid up to the end of April, so comments on that please I continued to request a full statement of account, that's payments made and dates over the last 12 months, they refused stating the system will
  7. Good news but will it achieve anything? Just an addition. The debate should be live on the Parliament channel. Ill check and report back Michael Meacher States: January 9th, 2013 I am very pleased to announce that the elected Back-Bench Business Committee in the Commons has now arranged for a full 3-hour debate on Atos work capability assessments to take place in the main chamber (not in Westminster Hall where there has already previously been a debate on Atos) on Thursday 17 January starting shortly after 11am. I have already spoken to a large number of Members of a
  8. Just a reminder that the debate about ATOS is live on TV from about 11.15 this morning.
  9. If anyone is able to do so, it would be worth watching a "catch up " version of a speech this afternoon from the Parliament Channel as Coventry JMP Mr Jim Cunningham MP secured a Commons debate about the bailiff industry. The following is a "word" version of an article that appeared in yesterday's edition of the Coventry Telegraph that provides background..... A COVENTRY MP has secured a Commons debate tomorrow about the treatment of vulnerable people by council-hired bailiffs following a Telegraph investigation. The ten-minute rule bill scheduled for 2.30pm on Tuesday has been
  10. I have been reading about TV Licensing recently and whether they are lawfully required or not. I have no personal objective here other than enlightenment. I DO have a linence and will contiunue to do so as I can afford it (thankfully I have a job) and I know that I would be harassed if I didn't have one. But that got me thinking....is the main reason that people buy licences because they feel that they would be committing a crime and be threatened/harassed for not having one? When I was at Uni (some time ago now!) I received all sorts of threatening letters (more and more red ink each tim
  11. hi i started a thread a few days ago about defaulting on my wonga loan after alot of research on here i was advised to keep emailing them to arrange a repayment plan and not to phone. Anyways after 3 days after constantly emailing them without reply i gave in and phoned.

I am sill abit wary of them trying my account to receive funds anyone had any bad experiences after setting up repayment plan
