If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to be a bit more socially active, I’d like to suggest a couple of campaigns that I’ve recently started following and have signed up for:
- Apparently January is sadly the most popular month for people to file for divorce. Faithfulness Matters are campaigning against companies who seek to make money from breaking up relationships, specifically websites encouraging married people to have affairs.
- Make Modesty Wraps Law started after Mike Beecham found his local Co-op displaying Lads Mags where his kids could easily see them. This is a subject close to my heart after my success with getting my local Asda to move explicit magazines away from kids’ level view. There have been indications that the government is planning something like this, but it is definitely worth writing to MPs and others to encourage action.
