Waffen SS flag together with NATO. Does MP Kyle still support NATO membership?

Dear Peter Kyle, Probably your parents have fought in World War Second against fascism , nazi regime and murderers from Waffen SS : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waffen-SS I wonder if you have learnt any lesson from them and what that evil has done to the humanity. My question is: what do you think about american Nato advancing in baltics and posing with Waffen SS flag: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/02/09/article-2098946-11A8BEA5000005DC-962_634x345.jpg http://russia-insider.com/en/us-soldiers-pose-nazi-selfie-time-russias-border/ri18889 does it shame you? Does it worry you ? Does it explains you why UK/EU taxpayers should pay 2% of GDP on Nato membership? Does it bring peace or provoke neighbouring Russia and for what? Do you want peace? My question is : can you raise the issue in the Parliament issue of de-escalation and returning back all military troops and exercises from Baltics? Under Freedom of Information please tell your constituents how much do those exercises and permanent installations of NATO cost to the UK and EU taxpayers? Am sure senior citizens, WW2 veterans, NHS, junior doctors, Aslef/RMT, teachers and other ordinary people affected by cuts and austerity want to hear your opinion and where you stand in regard to more money waste on wars, conflicts and NATO. Do you honestly want a new Cold War americans ignite with NATO to destabilise peace on Continental Europe? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/10/26/britain-boosts-estonia-troop-deployment-on-russias-border/

Biggest news you missed this weekend

A federal judge in Seattle on Friday issued a nationwide restraining order blocking the travel ban put in place by President Trump. The White House quickly responded, saying the federal government would challenge the judge's decision. Asking a federal court to overturn the judge's injunction, Trump called the ruling "ridiculous" and a "terrible decision." Early Sunday, a federal appeals court rejected a request by Trump's Justice Department to immediately restore the travel ban; the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit based in San Francisco said a reply from the Trump administration is due on Monday. Meanwhile, refugees and some foreigners raced the clock to enter the United States after news of the travel ban's block. Volunteers manning a crisis-management headquarters behind a diner at John F. Kennedy International Airport breathe a collective sigh of relief, delighted that one week after the explosive order came into effect a federal judge in Seattle had suspended it.

Outsider MP Kyle has voted against Labour party's unity

Dear Peter, Perhaps, as a suggestion you should start paying more attention at Labour party's unity and leader Jeremy Corbyn and the majority in the UK as a whole country who voted to leave. To save Labour party for the next general elections you should not run your own marathon .

About Labour Alternative

There have always been many people in Northern Ireland who do not identify with Orange or Green politics. In the 1960s before the “Troubles” exploded the Northern Ireland Labour Party represented many of those. There was also support for other labour and left political parties and groups at the time. Unfortunately no broadly-based alternative political party has existed since the 1960’s. We believe that this is the time for a genuine attempt to build a cross community alternative. We are angry about austerity. We are fed up with living in a place where women and LGBT people are denied basic rights. We reject sectarian politics and sectarian politicians. A start has to be made. Labour Alternative is a genuine attempt to build support in both communities. We have candidates from both a Protestant and a Catholic background. Our members are trade unionists, socialist activists, LGBT activists, community activists. We support policies which unite ordinary people, not divide them. Labour Alternative respects the aspirations of all but our aspiration is a society where the majority are united in common purpose to overcome division.

566 more illegal settlements in Jerusalem - can MP Kyle speak up in the Parliament?

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/01/israel-approves-permits-566-settler-homes-170122111203317.html When MP Kyle raises his hand to bomb Syria will you consider him as a hypocrite for not raising his hand to bomb Israel for violations of UN resolutions against illegal Israeli settlements in Jerusalem and West Bank? No single letter of discontent and solidarity from him to the Foreign Secretary and PM to impose immediate sanctions against Israel.

Southern Rail Crisis BBC TV debate - where is MP Kyle??

Last night on BBC TV you could watch debates on Southern Railway crisis, but our MP Kyle was NOT there: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08bmsx7/southern-rail-crisis Is it how he cares and represent his constituents and stand by all affected commuters, unions and Brighton & Hove constituents? Has he been "taken down" or hibernating? Supposedly, some Israeli diplomats according Guardian are trying to "take down" British MPs: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jan/07/israeli-diplomat-shai-masot-caught-on-camera-plotting-to-take-down-uk-mps Silence and "ostrich head in the sand" is not what your constituents want to see.

£500mln is the cost of UK payment for the EU-Turkey migrant deal.

Will Labour policy and stance change and when they will stop moaning that there are no money for our railways, junior doctors and affordable housing? Is it Labour hypocrisy? Does Labour leader and MP Kyle want Turkey to join the EU and come to Britain? Is this one of the reason why MP Kyle voted again in the Parliament to remain in the EU? http://gbrexit.com/brexit/corbyn-backs-turkey-joining-the-eu-but-cancels-pro-turkish-speech-in-istanbul-until-after-the-referendum/ Constituents want to know.

Does MP Kyle support Saudi Arabian proxy-wars or he only raises his hand to bomb Syria?

Dear Peter Kyle, Will you agree with Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson : https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/dec/07/boris-johnson-accuses-saudi-arabia-of-twisting-and-abusing-islam and raise your voice in the Parliament to ban arms trade and impose embargo and sanctions on brutal Saudi Arabia regime which violates international laws and human rights inside Saudi Arabia and outside? Can you raise this issue at the Parliament debates and write to the Business Secretary about your constituents' concerns and disagreement with Saudis foreign policies such as violating UN resolutions and brutally bombing civilians in Yemen and immediate ban on all arms export licences to Saudi Arabia and other affiliated Gulf dictatorships? Thank you Yours sincerely,

Speed limit road signs

Hi Peter . London is full of speed limit road signs saying "20's Plenty". I saw them for the first time yesterday and I thought they were very effective. It's catchy and a great reminder and it sticks in your head. Just a thought!

Labour Party's formula for rail fares has failed us again: STOP Rail Fares increase!

Dear MP Kyle, With deep shock and sadness I was reading news about rail fares increase. What do you do and Labour Party to outlaw Labour created formula and reverse back any proposed rail fares increase which are already the most expensive in Europe. There is no need to mention never ending failures and strikes on Thameslink and Southern. Have Labour party already confirmed they will put in the manifesto to re-nationalise railways in the UK and change this formula? One letter to Transport Secretary Chris Grayling is NOT enough. Do you involve in cross-party group Tory rebel MPs like Tom Tugendhat ( Tonbridge and Malling) or Croydon South - Chris Philp to lobby Transport Select Committee to freeze and stop any proposed rail fare increases ? Have you written to Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn and called upon unified party policy in regard to rail fares ? Southern and Thameslink continue to charge unfair 10 pounds admin fee for EACH ticket refund and refuse to charge only once this admin fee if you post them 3 or 4 combined tickets for refunds. Is it fair? In the same envelope on the same one page refund form just more than 1 ticket to process , why they still charge 10 pounds per each refund ? Eager to know. Thank you Best regards

285 million of UK taxpayers will be spent on BBC OVERSEAS - STOP IT!

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-34902244 Will our MP Kyle finally start to speak up and raise his voice against UK taxpayers' money waste on BBC Overseas services when in his own constituency public services are cut , PPC Commissioner is asking to increase council tax to pay for more police staff and inefficient Brighton NHS trust may be overtaken by Worthing NHS trust to cut costs? Is it worth to demand from the government to spend 285 million on local services rather than to support unfair BBC TV licence and pay for broadcasting in North Korea, Russia, Middle East and Africa? Act now and speak out! Enough is enough!

Investigatory Powers Bill (IP Bill) - supported by Labour to spy on us

Can our MP Kyle answer if he will vote for this IP Bill? There was disappointing news yesterday as the House of Lords have voted to pass the Investigatory Powers Bill (IP Bill). The Lib Dems and Greens tried to introduce amendments to try to restrain these extreme surveillance powers; they were not supported by Labour. The Bill now goes back to the Commons and we’re talking to the Labour front bench about how they can still oppose the Bill. If the Bill is passed in its current state by the Commons, we will work with other organisations to identify the best ways to challenge it in court. There is a lot that needs to be fixed: Internet Service Providers will be obliged to store their customers' web browsing history. This data can be accessed by the police and government departments using a search engine that could lead to profiling. Bulk data collection will continue with no new restraints. Encryption could be weakened if companies are forced to remove encryption from their products without telling their customers. Mass hacking could weaken the security of the Internet. Some things are improved, particularly oversight and some aspects of authorisation, which is no longer a matter for Ministers alone. We’re still waiting for a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union that is likely to force some restrictions on data retention. ORG was a party in this case, brought by Tom Watson MP, and we expect the judgment in the New Year. We always knew it was going to be difficult taking on the security agencies but we are not giving up! We will fight on.

No NATO membership! NO more Wars !

Can our MP be so kind to explain his constituents why he is not speaking up against so much money waste on NATO membership and why UK Ministry of Defence is spending so much money on NATO infrastructure in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania so far away from Britain and paying lots of money for military exercises there when Britain is getting more poor with more strikes from RMT union scheduled, more junior doctors' strike, more cuts in NHS, police and other public infrastructure we desperately need here ( direct train from Brighton to Heathrow airport would be nice to have than military bases and troops in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and so on) ? Would he be more pro-active and openly express his position on this issue? Does NATO membership pays off to UK taxpayers or is it worth having a NATO-exit or ask NATO members as Donald Trump suggested to pay for themselves and contribute more as far as Baltics and other poor NATO members are concerned? More independent alternative thoughts from the Noble prize winner for Peace who has opened up Iron Curtain here: https://www.rt.com/news/221367-gorbachev-nato-war-russia/

Homelessness Reduction Bill 2nd reading on Friday 28th Oct

Dear Peter, Situation with homeless people and rough sleepers on the streets of Brighton & Hove is shocking and unacceptable. Will you attend this Friday and support Homelessness Reduction Bill and tell other MPs you know to attend and vote as 100 MPs must attend and support? https://community.crisis.org.uk/no-one-turned-away/home#takeaction You should speak firmly in the Parliament to cut NATO budget and stop wasting British taxpayers' money on militarisation of Baltics and Eastern Europe and demonisation of Russia with further Cold War escalation: http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-k-to-send-formidable-force-to-eastern-europe-1477440062 Those monies are NEEDED here in your constituency to fight poverty, junior doctors and RMT union strikes and support education including changing national curriculum to teach younger generation about great victories and heroes of WW2 and WW1, not history of islam or Benin and Western Africa. Thank you Best regards

Direct high-speed rail to Heathrow airport form Brighton & Hove

Dear Peter Kyle, I have read recently that a senior MP for Feltham and Heston you may know Ms Seema Malhotra is lobbying for her constituents in the Parliament to link new rail line between Heathrow and Waterloo. I thought that you may follow her example and lobby actively to launch a direct train line from Brighton AND Hove to Heathrow airport non-stop similar to Gatwick Express. Currently, people living in your constituency face a havoc and struggling to get to Heathrow and it takes too long via London. When Crossrail and HS2 projects went ahead I think it is time during your term to lobby for better connections from Brighton and Hove to Heathrow airport. Thank you Best regards

English laws for English!

Dear Peter, Why in Scotland prescriptions are free and higher education is free as well including for those form the EU coming to study in Scotland but English people including pensioners in your constituency must pay for prescriptions , English students must pay exaggerated tuition fees up to 9,000 pounds when EU nationals can study for free paying nothing discriminating English from our supposed to be United Kingdom? Is it time for you to lobby and speak up in the Parliament and add it to the Labour manifesto? Is it time for Scotland to look after themselves ? Thanks Denis

Crimea recognition

Dear Peter, you have recognised and supported Kosovo separation. Will you also follow an example of Italian and French MPs who visited Crimea and support free Will of people for the right of self-determination and want to have stronger bilateral relations and business ties. Is it time for British MPs to visit and recognise Crimea's independence from maidan junta? https://in.rbth.com/news/2016/10/14/italian-delegations-visit-to-crimea-to-boost-economic-cooperation-mp_638833 Will you please discuss it with your Labour MPs and write a letter to the Foreign Secretary and meet your Italian MP counterparts to discuss this issue ? It can open a new market for the businessmen from your constituency and the UK. Language of sanctions never worked as Obama said lifting sanctions on Cuba. After Kosovo precedent you should also raise your voice and recognise the right of Crimean people for self-determination. Thank you Best regards Denis

National Curriculum on History excludes teaching of World Wars

Peter, Nicki Morgan was sacked and replaced by the new Education Minister. She has managed to change National Curriculum and there is absolutely no requirement to teach about the two world wars or, indeed, about any event or personality in British history. Examples of what "could be" taught do include the wars but it is specified that teaching these is "non statutory". In contrast, some topics are on a compulsory list including Islamic history and West African (Benin) history. http://campaignforanindependentbritain.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Generations-Betrayed.pdf Can you contact new Education Minister and demand to change what Tory Nicki Morgan has changed and by doing this make a real contribution in educating further new generation and supporting all people who like to go to Shoreham Airport air show, look at vintage World War planes and remember the greatest contribution and fight against Nazi Germany in joint coalition with Russia and US. Otherwise, memory about World Wars will be lost and Brighton&Hove pensioners won't be proud and happy about it either. Thank you Kind regards Denis
