Here's a little follow up to my last post supporting the #nomorePage3 campaign.
I asked a member of each of the main parties in Newbury if they'd sign the petition requesting that David Dinsmore, Editor of The Sun reconsider the content of Page 3 and this is what happened:
Labour: I contacted Richard Garvie who texted me within 30 minutes to say that he'd signed the petition - whoop!
Conservative: I got in touch with Richard Benyon, MP who replied with a rather lovely letter (below). Great that he agrees with the aims of the campaign, but I think he has misunderstood what it's asking MP's to do. We're not asking you to legislate Richard, just show your support! (pretty please).
Liberal Democrat: I emailed Judith Bunting who I'm yet to hear from...come on lady!
Three messages, two replies and only a few minutes work on my part to promote the hard graft of a few people who are really putting themselves out there to try to take the tits off the tea-tables in our local café and soft play. So if you've got a few minutes to spare, drop a line to your local MP and give these girls a hand!
