ADD YOUR OWN COMMENTS BELOW THIS POST. THEY ARE VERY WELCOME
I got a standard boring reply from my Mp's office - Ive reproduced it below
The reply I had in response to my letter to Sir George came in the form of an email (from his daughter!) with a link to a page on his website the content of which was 80% the same as the above, what a surprise!
Scrap the 3p fuel duty rise & reduce the rate of fuel duty .... paying fuel duty & VAT on our petrol & diesel is nothing more than a ripoff ... also if we do get a fare size reduction prices of shop products will fall & that means people can buy more which will give the government more tax without hurting the people
My MP's reply
I just thought I would add that it looks like MP's are doing a standard cut and paste word for word job in their replies as you see with my and Ray Preston's reply.
I tried to lobby my mp ,peter lilley(tory,hichin and harpenden),as part of Fairfuel lobby at parliament recently,waited for 1 hour but was unlucky,then sent him a Fairfuel email,got a very non committal response from his secretary.i have now written him a letter and await his response.
The same stock answer from my MP Liam Fox and subsequent emails back and forth (all answered by his secretary)
Just e-mailed my MP Chris Williamson urging him to support this campaign as his name is not in the list. I will publish his reply here when I receive it.
