I'd pay a penny more tax to save the NHS

NHS finances are in crisis, and with less money to go around, life-saving local services are left with no option but to cut back hours or worse, close down.

Right now, senior Labour figures are arguing about whether to make an election pledge for more NHS funding. Pro-NHS experts argue that a 1p tax rise to pay for healthcare is exactly what the NHS – and the country – needs.

Ed Miliband will want to make an announcement at next week’s party conference. A big petition telling him that funding the NHS is a vote winner could help tip him the right way.

The technology that 38 Degrees members have used to run big national campaigns has now been opened up for everyone to create change with. It's called Campaigns By You. It's incredibly simple and free to use.

Is there an issue that’s close to your heart? Is one of your local services under threat? Are you concerned about an environmental issue? Is there a company that needs challenging to change its ways or is there something you’d like to see the government do, to make the UK a better place?

If so, you can start a petition right now, it only takes a few minutes to get your campaign started.


Bedroom tax: Let's change it

Could this be the end of the worst parts of the bedroom tax? The unfair tax that forces people to move or pay more rent if they have a “spare” room, even if there aren’t other homes to go to. Ask MPs to vote for a law that would protect thousands from it.

Recall: Put power in voters hands

Together, we can build a HUGE people-powered petition to get real recall - so if enough people wanted to hold a by-election to sack their MP in between elections, they could.
