Try to make the NBA have more diversity. It seems like there are virtually no white pro basketball players anymore and I don't really see many Asians. I think this has to do with the myth that white guys can't jump and so I would try to get rid of that myth so that there would be more diversity in the NBA. I think it's great that we have a lot of black players, but sometimes I think that there aren't enough spots for players of other races nowadays.

I would make the WNBA more popular somehow.

I would try to improve the image of women on tv and in films. There wouldn't be so many unrealistically thin females anymore! Anorexia would go down too!

I wouldn't be Prime Minister, because:

1. I really don't like my country.
2. It's too much hassle anyway.

If I were Prime Minister I would:

1) Abolish cigarettes
2) Employ more researchers or fund more money to help find a cure for horrible diseases such as cancer and AIDS
3) Give nursery staff higher pay.
4) Have more support and resources available to those who have suffered from domestic violence, rape or a bereavement. Also, young carers should be given more support and be entitled to more 'days off'
5) Aim to reduce cancer deaths by giving any potential cancer patients earlier scans.
6) Help improve sex education in schools to reduce teenage pregnancy and STI's.
7) Allow more bank holidays and on at least one of the days, it is essential to do something outrageously silly (but not harmful!).

6)Put pressure on America to stop invading countries just because they feel like it
7)Make Frank-N-Furter my deputy Prime Minister
8)Respect all people(except the Tories :twisted: )

Some of yours don't really fit together, not being nasty here but you can't raise taxes and legalise abortions on demand if your trying to get equality,

Ok my rules:

1. Have a Darius day
2. Make Stereotypes illegal
3. Break relations with George W and get the troops out of the middle east
4. Make more hostels for the poor

I'd pretty much knock sense into other world leaders, expose bush, get the troop out the middle east, outlaw stereotypes on an offensive basis, promote 70's and 80's rock and of course officialize the cthulhu cult as a real religion just for the hell of it. :lol:

What I would do if I was prime minister from my own things I see.

Be very nationalist not really get involved in any other country’s business. What makes me so annoyed about this country is that this country never has anything to celebrate or feel proud of who we are instead we moan at other countries.

Make my country happy instead of pretending it is.

TV would be limited set for news channels not because I like news channels but if the country was in a panic e.g. terrorist attack then obviously you would need the news to keep up to date with things otherwise TV will have a time lock on it..

No reality TV because jade goody may of a lost a business deal with India and its rubbish TV.

St Georges Day would be celebrated in this country

Like America we would sing the national anthem at school. Because I don’t know it and I think its sad that me and other people don’t even know are national anthem.

In bottom sets at schools there should be a law where there has to be two teachers in the class. Not smaller classes because there is not enough room in school rooms and it cost money a lot of money to build extra school rooms when there could be people who are unemployed doing a job which is more worthwhile to a student I think this would really help.

I would lower are cost in education I have to lower something to make the money right I think the only thing wrong here is the teaching not the education books or computers the only thing I felt like I wasn’t learning was the teaching. But the excuse I hear from education people is that they not got new books or not enough computer. Maybe it because your no good at teaching?

Support teachers should be payed higher as for the likes of me a support teacher has to teach me and find different ways in trying to get the question in my head and be more patience with the likes of me about and should get payed just like a teacher when there’s holidays.

If for the 4years the kid in secondary school has been a class idiot and has stop kids from learning then it should be discuss if they can be in a bad behaviour class with all the specialist help they need with special lessons teaching then things what really there parents should of teach them about respect towards other people and have weekly a special counselling lesson to get round their problems. I don’t believe in kids getting exspell from schools and moving to another school. A school should do all they can to help that kid!

Make special design standing areas in football stadiums which are more safer so the people who actually want to sit don’t have to have a person standing up throughout the game getting in there way.

Drink problem I won’t be a popular prime Minster but this whole binge drinking has to stop its just pathetic. What I thought is if you going to buy drink you going to have a limit that means there’s has to be a card involved. You cannot buy drink without it and you can only buy a certain amount as well and the working class paying taxes can have this card this means people who are homeless can not have one and can actually buy themselves food instead of ruining there life with drink. This means there wont be girls and boys from pubs going to hospital to get there stomach pumped and wasting time on them while they could be saving someone’s life who really needs them.

Radio laws – Unsigned British music even if its not better than the Americans has to be played on radio about 50% to stop pirate radios from causing trouble with the signals in hospitals. Special radio stations will have to be made for teenagers to feel like they belong in this world as well with all teenager presenters.

Make the country more religious even know im not religious I believe there is a lot of good things inside the bible about life and how to be a right person, I just don’t believe in the story of how the earth was made. But I do believe if you are religious it is a good thing. So important time on the evening on TV like 6 and 10 on all channels there would be a pray of the day whatever you want to call it.

If you don’t like it turn off the TV.

I believe if someone is serious ill should be allowed to die under there free will if they not going to get better and only worse gradually in time.

Different ethnics would not be separated from each other special laws would have to be made in allowing people who really want to be here for a fresh start in life instead of causing social awkwardness

There would only be Christian and Catholics schools and churches all the rest would have to close im afraid I believe this puts a whole social awkwardness in our country. I think people should learn “RESPECT” and respect that this country is a Christian country and if you don’t like I im afraid to you have to go to another country and teach your religion there. I don’t believe you can have 10 religions and all get on because you will always find something which is a against that person’s faith and it causes more damage than its worth.

Imagine if I went into Iran and said let all be Christian and follow these beliefs I would probably be torture.

Football would be at night time it really does stop kids who are silly off the streets and into something which is family entertainment and be shared by all. More people like it and more people would go because people not be working.

Instead of work experience, kids should be made to do public service actitivtys such as heath, army, education or a carer. Doing this should help them learn key adult skills about life and about the troubles of life and frustrations.

Driving would take a year even if you think your good your not I think its mad someone can pass in like 4months and be driving around and then about 2months later he crash his car and nearly killed himself that was my mate. Who thought he was really good at driving.

Transport – I would make bus firms lower there prices by making more “only bus roads” more buses like every 7minutes by the same route. Cars can not go in towns strictly no go area which would mean more people on buses.

Ban hearing that word beatbullying what chavs like Jodie marsh promote who bullies other people when she feels like it but we have to hear her little bullying moments at school. From what I know she hardly got bullied that much. She would kill herself if she was in my shoes.

People bully it will never stop its part of life all over the world people get bullied.

Somehow teach the country about how nobody from disabilities to deaf are any different maybe this can be done by talks instead of negative more positive stuff about people.

But I want this country to think positive and be happy and not think money will make them any successful than someone who is driving around disability kids with no education but has also got a heart.

People just need to think different and live abit different.

Certain drugs would be allowed like weed it’s the same as smoking but worse I just believe that if its allowed then there be less. We need to relax about laws. Only use it for there own home use. People just think its cool because its against the law and so and so

I think the key word in this world where you can learn from is “respect and sensible talk” you don’t have to swear to get your point across that’s all I hear from my age. F this and f that and abit of w with that. My step dad teach me this when I was 15. I was a foul mouthed kid but very sensible still but my language was not in the right order and I sounded terrible now I hardly swear at all and realised it really does make you sound awful now I properly gained about 30 year over people I still hear people at football who are like 50 and have to swear in every last sentence they talk and these are the people who call themselves “normal”

There’s loads more what I think. Im not writing no more because I will start thinking I can run our country :wink:

i would leggalise marijunia (but not skunk), make protesting legal without a permit, create higher taxes for the rich, more aid to t5he elderly, make police less tough on small things like graffiti art and wearing a jumper with a hood ( ive been pulled over god knows how many times for wearing my zip up hood over my head when its raining), find a way to help rebuild iraq while pulling out of iraq (all though this might not be possible at the moment), abolish peaple who hate video games tv books comics movies music and everything else that might might cause there kids to ask questions and be creative and make them do some parenting outside of using the bible.

There are some things wrong with the EU, but it is not all bad. Britain does 14% of it's trade with the EU and because we are part of the EU we don't have to pay tarriffs. This brings a lot of jobs and money to Britain.

Thanks to the EU, it is easier for us to live temporarily in other European countries. It is possible for British students to study in Europe thatnk to the EU's SOCRATES/ERASMUS programme. This is very useful as it gives them the opportunity to learn about different cultures and to learn other languages.

The European court of human rights protect the rights of all EU citizens. Yes, some of the cases that go there are silly, but a lot are important. There was one case of a man whose wife had been in the army and had been killed. Because she was female, her husband and children were not entitled to the same amount of financial support as is available to the wives and children of dead male soldiers. The man took the case to the court and won. That was a victory for equality and justice, which happened thanks to the EU.

International co-operation is also useful for stopping organised crime syndicates and preventing drug-smuggling and international terrorism.

The EU does a lot of stupid things and wastes some money on things which are not worthwhile, but that doesn't mean it's all bad.
