Vince Cable’s department is in charge of TTIP in the UK. He’ll decide what we sign up to - he could make or break the deal. He needs to know that we see him as personally responsible for protecting our NHS and stopping big business from walking all over our government.
The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a secretive trade deal between the EU and the US. If it goes through, corporations would be able to sue governments for putting people over profit.

38 Degrees members have rated UK parties on where they stand on the issues we all care about. 38 Degrees members voted for what issues are our top priorities, and questions were sent to the parties. Thousands of us then rated the responses we got back from parties.

There are over 2.5 million 38 Degrees members. If enough of us get involved we can drive down gas and electricity bills for everyone. Companies are always eager to pass on price hikes.

Disabled people will be among those will suffer most from the government’s plans to cut legal aid.
Rose Hartley would have been one of those people after her disability benefit was wrongly cut by the government. She was only able to appeal against the decision thanks to the free legal aid advice she received.

The government has announced plans to start culling badgers.
Their own scientific advisers warn that it won't solve the problem of TB in cattle, and could even make it worse. They're consulting on the plans right now. If we don't stop them, badger shoots could begin in a matter of months. Can you add your name to the petition?
The government is looking at scrapping legal protections for the countryside, wildlife and the environment. They claim these laws are 'red tape.'
