Anyone written to their Tory MP? 23:21 - May 24 with 3439 viewstractordownsouth

Here's my contribution for what it's worth. Many of the MPs who've broken rank so far have done so off the back of constituent emails, so I'd encourage as many people to complain as possible.

As a constituent of matt hancock's, there's no point.


Excellent letter though.

Feel the same as mine is James Cartlidge.

I wrote to him about something before and received a bog standard reply about something else.

Mr (Tom) Hunt has my email.

I await his reply and/or public pronouncement.

I wasn't hopeful tbh. Don't do twitter so no view of "his" view.

He's a new boy too so I imagine will be keen to follow the whips' instructions and not rock the boat.

Still, writing these emails and letters is part of how our democracy is supposed to work.

Chap I used to work with commuted into London from Peterborough. One day he found several fleas about his person on the train. He wrote a letter of complaint to the train company.

He received a very nice letter in response full of the usual customer complaints platitudes.

Attached to the letter was a Post-It Note saying 'send this bloke the flea letter'.

Yes but as we are unlucky enough to have the dreadful Kemi Baddenoch as our MP it is utterly pointless.... but it makes me feel better.

I was going to write to her anyway in response to the startlingly inept puff that was put under her name in the local paper. She (and Boris) do not seem to realist that 60,000 + people have died so far - and that number could now rise dramaticly with the complete erosion in trust on the Government's wishy washy approach to public health.

On the plus side, every hour he dithers now makes his own position more and more untenable - even to right wing tories.

Mine is James Cartlidge too.

I have written to him, a rather shorter e-mail than TDS wrote

I am expecting him to trot out the party line in response, that was what he did last time I wrote to him.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Ditto

When I pointed this out on a facebook friend's post someone I don't know replied that "it's his job to do what his constituents tell him". I'm not sure who the MP is for cloud cuckoo land.

I’m in Suffolk Central and North Ipswich but I know Dan Poulter returned to work as a doctor so not sure how much of a MP he is being at the moment - not that I blame him for a moment. Interestingly he doesn’t appear to have any kind of social media account to gauge whether he supports Cummings, wants him gone or is pretending it’s not happening.

I've got Brandon Lewis so much the same here. He didn't even bother to meet up with those hit hardest by the UC rollout, see here:
https://www.greatyarmouthmercury.co.uk/news/great-yarmouth-mp-brandon-lewis-refu

He probably spends more time in Northern Ireland now than he does in Great Yarmouth.

I'm pleased to say I've never voted for him and never will. It's strange that an area like Great Yarmouth (which suffers greatly from poverty) keeps sending him back for more of the same!

According to Brandumb Lewis everything is 'Great' in Great Yarmouth, see here:

How cheesy is that video!

He was one of the Tory MP's that put pressure on the Government regarding Foreign NHS workers having to pay a fee to be in the UK.....so not a complete yes man.

Some are better than others. I wrote to Rory Stewart once and he sent me a lovely reply even though he is in (or at least was at that time) a totally different constituency.
Perhaps politics (at least in theory) would work better if we simply voted for the best MP on offer (in any given area) rather than always following tribal lines. But sadly (with the folly of first past the post) you're never going to get enough people to make that viable.

There is my email away to Dr Coffey. Focussed on my concern not on his actions but with regards the PM and cabinet response and the damage it is doing to the message. Furthermore the huge potential damage it will do should full lock down need to be introduced due to a second wave. GCSE psychology let alone the experts at SAGE, tells you the public simply will not be as conscientious in following the rules in the future.

That’s good to hear though in his job he would have first hand knowledge of the vital role they play.
