Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
In case anyone did not know!

Kim Howells now has a standard letter which goes out to MPs as well if she gets a letter about the act. John Redwood forwarded me the copy he got from her.

Interestingly she didn't (or her secretary didn't) have the good grace to fill in the balnk bits left for names etc. and I turned in to a woman (became a her) half way through! I bet the NHS didn't pay for that!!!

I shall consider sending this off to Tony Blair, our erstwhile PM from good old Stillington only about 10 miles from where I was born (as an aside) to emphasise that she may be out of touch with what is going on in the world and only seeing it thorufh rose tinted glasses which can have long lasting effects as has been seen by other political parties in the past. It also shows a level of contempt for those bothering to make any comment. All right so John Redwood is a Conservative in a big way, BUT, I am one of his constituents and no one (in theory) knows if I vote for him or not!!!!

Redwood describes the letter as 'bureaucratic and defensive' I can't say I disagree with him.
