May 24th is the day that the E-Petition ends. At present the total stands at 1,842, now although this is a great number of signatures, it would be nice to have the E-P finish on or over 2,000.
If you are a British citizen or resident and are reading this but haven't signed up, please take a look and help to push it over the 2,000 mark.
Back when the E-Petition started bloggers and outdoor people who supported the E-P were encouraged to write to their MP's. I sent a letter in the middle of February; to which I still haven't had a reply.
Over on BG!'s site; he recommended using TheyWorkFor You.com & WriteToThem.com to 1. find my MP (I knew who this is anyway) and 2. to write to them (again).
On the 5th May I sent another letter to my MP through WriteToThem.com.
Having a bit of spare time and looking through the numbers on WriteToThem.com; it seems as though my MP doesn't response to letter through this site to well.
Her figures for last year read as follows:-
Placed 557 out of 637
Received 149 letters
Replied to 37 out of 102
Replied within 2 or 3 weeek to a low number of messages sent via WriteToThem.com during 2007, according to constituents.
So I`m not holding my breath on a reply any time soon.
