I wondered if you’d seen Naomi’s email earlier this week about writing to the editor of your local paper to voice your concerns at this Government’s blatant contempt for the people of this country?
If you haven’t yet written a letter, I wondered if you would consider sending one today? I firmly believe that the best way to put pressure on this Government is to keep alive the conversations about the subjects that make it uncomfortable.

The sleaze scandal has rocked Britain, but the liberties MPs have taken with second jobs and deals with their mates are worrying more for what they indicate about our democracy.
A political system rife with corruption is not a democratic one. Where parliamentarians can get away with all manner of things, they are not being held accountable. We know that this is what the Government wants. Bills it is currently pushing through parliament such as the Elections Bill and the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill take away power from ordinary people and concentrate it in the hands of our Government.
So, will you send a letter to the editor of your local paper raising these concerns? You can usually find the email address for your local paper’s letters page on their website and printed in the paper itself.
Here is the letter I hope you’ll send:
I am extremely concerned by the MP sleaze scandals of recent weeks. I simply don’t believe these issues exist in a bubble.
When politicians openly and knowingly fail their constituents, this is a symptom of something far more rotten at the heart of our political system. I’ve been following Best for Britain’s work on the Government’s anti-democratic agenda. Several bills are passing through parliament at the moment which threaten to undermine our democracy.
The Elections Bill will remove the independence of the Electoral Commission and undermine its ability to monitor elections. Other bills, such as the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill and the Judicial Review and Courts Bill all take power out of the hands of ordinary people and our democratic institutions and concentrate it in the hands of the Government.
The fact that this Government is so happy to take liberties with public trust is, I fear, a sad sign that this Government is already preparing for a future where it cannot be held accountable.
Will you send a letter? Let us know:
