I’ve made a petition – will you sign it?

My petition:

Build a new Royal Yacht Britannia

Following the EU referendum, we should build a new Royal Yacht Britannia using British Steel, British Workers and training British apprentices. Britannia would be a Flag Ship for a newly invigorated Britain sailing the oceans of the world promoting the UK globally as a free trading nation.

This is a perfect opportunity to invest British money in a project that will create British jobs, train British apprentices and produce a fully British product. The Royal family will once again be able to showcase British engineering and design at its best whilst visiting countries all over the world establishing and building relationships that will pave the way for trade deals with our Global partners.

My petition:

The immediate withdrawal of all subsidies to Scotland from UK public funds.

That Scotland be prepared for possible independence from the UK by the immediate withdrawal of all subsidies from public funds for the Public Sector expenditure in Scotland.

Since the support for Scotland is at a similar level to the net contribution to the EU, this will prepare the UK for the fiscal benefit of leaving the EU.

Gov UPDATE: “Ban the sale of fireworks to the public and only approve organised displays.”

Dear Ian Bell,

The Petitions Committee decided not to debate the petition you signed – “Ban the sale of fireworks to the public and only approve organised displays.”

The Petitions Committee has decided not to schedule a debate on this petition. When it decides which petitions should be debated, the Committee looks at whether the subject has recently been debated by the House of Commons.

There was a debate on Monday 6 June on a petition that called for restrictions on the use of fireworks. The Committee has therefore decided not to schedule a debate on this subject again, because it is only a few months since the last debate.

You can watch the debate here:
