E-mail sent. We have to keep the pressure up.

I had already written to the MP last week, asking her to state which way she was intending to vote on the general issue of House of Lords reform. I got back a long-winded essay (no doubt computer-generated) about government proposals etc., but would she declare her own hand...? Of course not. These people are incapable of answering straight questions. I included a veiled threat of withdrawing my support as constituent. (She never had it anyway - you reap what you sow!)

I used to live in the Netherlands, with their 'paarse coalities' ('purple' coalitions). Political life there seemed rather dull - an administration, but not a government. Nowhere is there a perfect system, only a choice of imperfect ones.
