Pitchforks and Scythes Update

The Wat Tyler petitions to the Palace about our impending disenfranchisement have now brought some response.

Chairman Maude writes to say he is 'delighted to have received so many suggestions and ideas' and 'he will make sure my suggestions are considered fully'.

Hmm. Right.

My local Conservative MP says it's 'all very difficult'. Last time we members elected IDS and that 'didn't work out well'.

He also reckons 'there is a widely held belief among the membership that the Parliamentary party should have the final say'.

Well, not round our way there isn't (see earlier post).

So it looks like we're going to need those pitchforks.
