Service launched to reduce the pain of calling a call centre.

"John Hemming, who has created an internet Startup called Cirrostratus
since he ceased being an MP, is launching a free online service to make
life easier for people phoning call centres.   The service is provided
by Cirrostratus, but the SIP backbone is provided by the multi-award
winning business VoIP solution, Soho66."

John said, "Many people find phoning call centres a real pain.  Our
service is aiming to make things a lot easier.   One click on alink or
the bookmarks list and our server will phone up the call centre and get
through all the menus.  This is a lot faster than when people have to
phone up and is less irritating."

"Additionally the system uses WebRtc and the internet to make the call.
This means that people don't find their normal phone system being
blocked whilst they hang on the line waiting to speak to a human being."

Marketing Manager from Soho66, David McManus, said: "This is a very
exciting and valuable service for customers that John and ourselves feel
will benefit all parties - including the businesses who operate the call
centres themselves.

"This is because it makes them more accessible to their own customer
base and less off-putting when it comes to having to ring them for
something, increasing their customer friendliness."

John said, "If people find the WebRtc links to the phone system
something useful they can set up their own account on our servers. By
creating an account with Soho66 they can receive calls from people using
telephones and also make calls to the telephone system as well as use
web rtc for video calls."

"The system currently only works on recent versions of the Chrome
Browser, but we expect to be able to implement versions for Edge and
Firefox in the future.  It uses advanced web techniques such as WebRtc
and sharedworkers which not all broswer companies have implemented properly."

A grassroots uprising against terrorism

Original Date 26th May 2017

One thing I used to do when I was the Member of Parliament for Yardley was to call together meetings of all of the religious organisations in Yardley as a Yardley multi-faith group.  In many ways it is the creation of informal links between people that makes communication easier even if there is no formal decision making power.

Obviously this is something I would intend to do again if the people of Yardley ask me to take on the responsibility of representing them in parliament.

It highlights the sort of thing that politicians can do which arises from a leadership role within communities rather than any constitutional position.

I have already written in an earlier blog post about the principles of resolving conflict.  It can be summarised as "murdering innocents is wrong".

A number of local mosques have issued statements following the atrocity in Manchester and I think it is worth quoting from parts of them.

One said that the mosque "Unequivoc…

Lib Dems would give the West Midlands police force an extra £16,220,000 a year

Liberal Democrats have announced they would boost investment in police forces by £300m a year. This is in stark contrast to the Conservatives who have overseen devastating cuts to community policing. Theresa May as Home Secretary and now Prime Minister has cut policing budgets by over £2bn, eroding the very fabric of community policing.

Under the Liberal Democrats the West Midlands would see a funding increase of £16,220,000 a year. This could be used to restore a visible policing presence in the community and ensure the police have the training and tools to deal with the changing nature of crime.

Liberal Democrat John Hemming commented:“This investment in our police is absolutely vital. Under Theresa May – first as Home Secretary and now as Prime Minister, our police have had to deal with severe cuts. These are now cutting into the bone.“Our police work tirelessly to keep us safe and this Government has completely betrayed them.“Only the Liberal Democrats have a credible pl…
