Our current system means we all get the politics that these users of tax havens pay for. It's now up to David Cameron to break with that unholy alliance - to announce an end to the secrecy regimes in all British-controlled territory, to use the summit he is hosting next month to demand matching action from other nations, and to say that the Tory Party will no longer accept money from donors who use tax havens in their business or personal affairs.
The arguments for a political system that's genuinely democratic, that produces a government reflecting the will of the people that encourages a more constructive, effective politics are overwhelmingly strong. Britain needs to do this. It needs to do it soon. That requires parties, campaigners - the people - to get together and demand the change. Today's one step in that process.
Every summer, at the first hint of blue skies and sunshine, the beach in my constituency in Brighton fills up with people who have travelled from far and wide to enjoy the beautiful seaside. The scenes on those days are replicated across the country. We are people who, despite the inconsistent weather and chilly water - like to be beside the sea. It's easy to forget that bathing in British waters was a hazardous activity not so long ago and that it was action from the EU which cleaned up the coastline.
I believe the people who know first-hand the extent of the problem - the private renters themselves - are the best people to start doing it, and that's why I want to help them to help themselves. Joining forces always makes people stronger, and renters need no longer be the soft touch their landlords take them for.
What's vital now is that young people use our voice to fight for Britain's place in Europe. We know how vast the benefits of membership are; how powerful a union the EU really is. There's a danger, though, that in the coming months this will get lost among arguments about business and finance, and scaremongering over migration.
We must use the funds available now from the consumption of non-renewable capital to invest in tomorrow's technology, renewable resources and mechanisms which support organisations which serve a social purpose rather than relying on short term profit maximisation. We need an economy that works for the people, not the other way around.
The Government has refused to publish the legal basis for action, creating a legal and accountability vacuum. Without our legal challenge it's impossible to determine whether the decision to execute to British men- and what that signifies in terms of Government policy - meets the robust conditions set out in international and domestic law.
The EU is, as it stands, a real brake on further attacks on our rights. EU rules mean that we're not forced to work more than 48 hours per week, that we're entitled to four weeks paid holiday and that part time and agency workers are entitled to equal pay and conditions. Indeed at the heart of EU rules -written into the Charter of Fundamental Rights - is the right to strike.
On the humanitarian side, there's inspiring, exciting leadership, not mostly from governments or even charitable bodies, but individuals, people getting together and saying that they're not going to tolerate desperation, suffering and want, but are going to take individual action to provide refuge... Sadly, if predictably, the British government falls into the other pole of reaction to the crisis, with those who'd deny the reality of the need for refuge, who pull up the drawbridge of a peaceful, prosperous country and turn their back on desperation, fear and need, leaving the children to drown.
The United Nations will have a Special Session on global drug policy next April and will begin discussions next month in New York. Our Guidance on Interpreting the Drug Conventions, published today, sets out an entirely new vision for global drug policy. The first step is to abandon the hopeless objective of creating a drug free world.
The public is being fed a constant diet of hyperbole about hordes of dangerous criminals roaming the Channel Tunnel, assaulting British citizens and storming Britain's borders. A mood of anxiety and hostility risks creeping over the public, with growing demands for the UK to close its borders and weed out 'illegal' immigrants from British life. But behind this rhetoric is a very different reality, and it's that reality that we will be confronting today as we visit the 'jungle' camp in Calais.
As we look back on the first 100 days of this Government, many politicians, businesses and campaigners are also looking forward - with just four months to go until world leaders meet in Paris to agree a deal on climate change... Yet the first 100 days of Conservative rule have been grim for anyone who cares about securing a safe climate for our children and grandchildren.
The government last week set out its proposals to further reduce the rights of our trade unions, already labouring under the most restrictive laws in Europe, to cut away at rights that the Tolpuddle martyrs, who were being commemorated over the weekend, fought so hard for in the 19th Century. These plans are dreadful, and must be fought tooth and nail, which the Green Party will be doing.
