A Disgraceful Excuse for a Politician……

4 Mar

Karl McCartney MP……

Below is a letter our local MP sent to one of his constituents in response to an issue which concerns many people.  It was sent as a result of an appeal made by the “38 Degrees” website.  38 Degrees raises many important questions regarding the actions and inactions, policies or lack of them.  Some of their campaigns include, the recall of MPs who fail to do the job for which they were elected, the catastrophe of the NHS reform bill, tax ‘avoidance’ of the rich and the dismantling of our Legal Aid system.  All of these issues are of concern to people of all political persuasions, religion, age and race.  It has millions of people signed up to its newsletters, a great deal of whom act in support by contacting their MPs to make their feelings known.

This is how Mr. McCartney feels about his constituents and the websites who lobby for change.  I hope you find this as shocking as we did……

I have contacted Mr. McCartney to offer him an opportunity to respond and complained to the Secretary for Parliamentary Standards about this rude and arrogant man……

I’ll keep you posted, although I don’t expect a reasonable or carefully considered answer……

    A recall of MPs who fail – that’s an excellent idea.

    This letter is amazing – more personal in response than could have been hoped for! I wonder what made him think 38 Degrees was doing this guy’s thinking for him – did he send in a form letter? Amnesty does that (if he did) – offers a prewritten letter, then you can add whatever you want, or simply sign if you agree to its contents, & send to the MP. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that at all. It doesn’t indicate Amnesty would have done my thinking for me, just that Amnesty recognises we are all busy in our lives, trying to survive policies, & they said what we want to say so well, we just need to sign.

    Good luck, yes, with getting a response!
