E-Mailing MPs

My MP is in the Dark Ages. I can’t e-mail him!

We should be able to e-mail everybody in government. The technology is there, so that they can all be handled properly and in a reasonable time.

It was all very different years ago. A school in Southgate in the early 60s, we invited all the MPs round and it was an interesting dichotomy. The Labour and Liberal candidates gave the standard party political spiel, but Anthony Berry gave a talk that I’ll always remember. He talked about democracy, why we should get engaged and why we should vote. Even those who would never vote Tory and probably never have since, were impressed.

Perhaps, one of the reasons young people don’t like politicians, is that they never leave the political garbage at the gate.
