Write to MPs

This is absolutely crucial.  And we ALL need to do it! Silence is acceptance. The fact that A50 has been triggered is irrelevant. Our voices need to be heard by MPs loudly and frequently.

REMEMBER: we pay them to act in what they genuinely believe to be the best interests of the country. If they don’t believe Brexit is, they should fight it. We need to encourage them to fight May every inch of the way over the next two years.

This website writetothem.com is a good way to do this. You don’t even need to know who your MP is! Just pop your postcode and it’ll take it from there.

Alternatively try the government site.

 

You can find a list of the (mostly) remain supporting Labour MPs, together with their HoC email addresses  (the email you should use if you are not a constituent) HERE.

A cross party list of pro-remain MPs can be found here. And this is the best site to use to find their contact details.

Linking Professor A C Grayling’s letter to all 650 MPs in your email is a good idea in your letters to both the Lords and MPs. This article publishing the answer he received and his response to it is also extremely useful.

This excerpt from Edmund Burke is generally regarded as a good definition of an MP’s role. Why not copy/paste it to them by way of a reminder. It’s pretty powerful stuff.

“To deliver an opinion, is the right of all men; that of constituents is a weighty and respectable opinion, which a representative ought always to rejoice to hear; and which he ought always most seriously to consider. But authoritative instructions; mandates issued, which the member is bound blindly and implicitly to obey, to vote, and to argue for, though contrary to the clearest conviction of his judgment and conscience,–these are things utterly unknown to the laws of this land, and which arise from a fundamental mistake of the whole order and tenor of our constitution.” Edmund Burke. Speech to the Electors of Bristol, 3rd November 1774

Before writing I would strongly recommend making yourself a nice cup of tea and settling back to listen to Professor Grayling’s recent brilliant speech to the Bristol for Europe group. He makes all the remain arguments superbly, and it really helped me to formulate my thoughts clearly when engaging with MPs. You need to allow yourself about 45mins.
