Thousands of us have now shared the replies we’ve received from our MPs in response to our e-mails about Andrew Lansley’s NHS plan. Volunteers in the 38 Degrees office have been processing all the replies, and have started to analyse in detail the content of responses, this week – gruelling work, but hugely important.
In total we now have online replies from around 80% of MPs. That’s brilliant – it means we will be able to target the next stages of our campaign on the basis of really detailed information about what MPs currently saying.
That still leaves 20% of MPs who we don’t have to reply for yet. What’s going on here? Of these how many are actually refusing to say where they stand? For these MPs in particular, arranging a visit to hand in a copy of our petition to them and challenge them in person will be crucial.
