Subject: RE: UK catters be useful TODAY
I e-mailed my MP re the earlier debate and have still heard nothing back- doesn't encourage one to try again.

Noreen I know what you mean, there have been many times over the past 15 months that I have been discouraged and wondered if all the effort was worth it. But do we really have any choice but to keep on writing and do all we can?

We could try other measures along with this, like a national folk protest day, but it is really unlikely that when you do eventually receive a reply, that this alone will change anything.

I don't think any of the replies I had received could be discribed as encouraging. The pressure needs to be constant and if possible, seen by our representitives and civil servants to be increasing.

Otherwise I feel that we will have demonstrated to them that we are the cheap political joke they have perceived us to be all along.............. Maybe they are right?

The general folk response seems to be, 'leave it to someone else who understands it and they will save us'.
