Hai!I don't know if you've heard, but the United Kingdom had the 2015 General Election two weeks ago today. It resulted in the Tories gaining absolute power over the country, the Liberal Democrats losing their coalition and they were completely crippled, and Labour lost a ton of their votes in Scotland to the Scottish National Party - whom they refused a coalition with, but probably would have won if they did. The last time the Tories were in power was from 1979 - 1990, which saw the British economy become restructured massively and affected us massively in the 2008 recession (which we are still recovering from) and punished the poor. Their 'reign' was tarnished by riots throughout the country.The day they were elected last week saw riots break out in the English capital of London and the Welsh capital of Cardiff, so... I bet these next five years will be fun. They also put a homophobe in charge of equalities, and the education minister as the law minister: probably because he wants to bring back public hangings.Anyway, their election manifesto was a bunch of crap. They have already acted on at least two of their promises: a European Union referendum in 2017 (which they want a ton), and cutting the work scheme from disabled people - they also want to track what people buy with benefits and reduce welfare spending... so the people who actually need that money get punished. They are going to act on a third within the next 80+ days: scrapping the Human Rights Act. What does this Human Rights Act do? Well...Gives us the right to lifeGives us the right not to be tortured or inhumanely punishedGives us the right to not be a slave or partake in forced labourGives us the right to be secureGives us the right to a fair trialProhibits punishment without lawGives us the right to a private and family life (the Tories also want a mass-surveillance program introduced)Gives us the right to religion, conscience and thoughtThe right to start a family and get married to who we wantPeaceful enjoyment of personal propertyThe right to free educationThe right for free electionsIt also prohibits discrimination.There's a whole lot more, but from just that I'll bet you can see what would happen if it got scrapped.There are two petitions that I know of that are fairly large: the Liberal Democrats' one, and the one on Change.org. I'd ask you to sign both.Another petition I'd like people to sign is this one. It basically calls on the government to keep the ban on fox hunting that was introduced by Labour (I think) a few decades ago. Personally, I believe fox hunting to be a sick and twisted practice. David Cameron's excuse for legalizing it is 'everyone has the right to hunt': yet I don't see him wanting me to kneecap him, chase him through a forest, and then to cut his throat open and leave his body out to the scavengers in the area.
