Subject: RE: Write an Email for Shambles? Part 2
Here's a site I made that makes writing to your MP a doddle: FaxYourMP.com - it doesn't even cost a postage stamps. An the fax looks lovely and efficient, with no green ink at all.

Sending an MP a letter isn't in itself too likely to achieve much in most cases. But it might just nudge them into taking an interest in some cases, so why not do it? Somewhere out there, maybe there's is a bored backbencher with a dusty guitar in his attic, who is looking around for a cause that's a little bit different, which might get him or her a bit of press attention.

I used to work in an office where there were always meetings. People would sit there silent and even smiling -then coming out you'd hear them muttering about all kinds of things they were angry about - and they'd been sitting there without ever making an effort to bring them up. Unwillingness to make waves the English disease, (Hence the Aussie expression whinging Poms, I believe, meaning whining and cringing at the same time.)
