Get your MP to support EDM 1885: Respect

DomDom BossDeactivated Posts: 344 Boards Initiate
So here I am, turning up on the Boards for like the first time in a year and what do i do?? - ask you for some help.

Yesterday Dawn Butler MP tabled an Early Day Motion supporting the campaign YouthNet has been working on for some time: Respect.

EDM 1885:
"...acknowledges that only a small minority of young people are antisocial; believes that the media does not give young people enough recognition for the positive things they do; and urges Hon. Members to ensure young people's views are represented in public debate by creating opportunities for their input such as holding youth surgeries and visiting schools, colleges and universities"

We want as many MPs to sign up to the EDM as possible. By clicking here, you can email your MP directly (although feel free to edit the text in there so it sounds like it actually comes from you rather than a youth-robot). Alternatively, you can contact your MP through this site http://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/

thanks loads,

Dom

    I'd ask if he wasn't such a child hating fuckwit. I get the feeling that he have them up the chimney if he could.

    No innuendo intended.

    My MP signed it today! :D

    Nothing like illustrating the point locally.

    Local paper: Vandalism by the youths on the St Johns estate.

    Civic Service (new mayors enrollment): My Scouts (from aforesaid estate) acting as ushers for the various County Mayors, MP, Councillors etc. No where near the local news.

    I can't see any reason why my MP wouldn't sign, as it's the kind of think that would make him look in touch with 'verkids', but he doesn't appear to have done so yet, so I'll spread the word...

    Sent.

    He'll probably sign it. He sent me a nice letter last time I sent him a generic email (something about seal culling in Canada) :D.

    If you are interested in this why not look at the v regional volunteer post, BYC are campaigning for issues including this one. As a volunteer you are able to work in your local area to promote the issues and increase the number of signatures.

    Mine signed. But he looks like Santa.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Dear Jemma



    Many thanks for your email to Jessica Morden MP, Jessica has asked me to send you the following message;



    Unfortunately as Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Secretary of State for Wales I am unable to sign EDMs, however I am very interested in your comments and agree with your views that many young people are misrepresented. I will look for other opportunities in the House of Commons to raise these points. If I can help in any other way please don?t hesitate to contact me.



    Kind regards Jessica
