There are now over 10,000 of us
By 38 Degrees team
We’re growing fast, and the more of us there are the more powerful we will become. Today we passed an important milestone, with the 10,000th person getting involved. This feels like something worth celebrating.
Together, in just 7 weeks, we’ve already had a real impact. For example:
- We’ve forced a Recall Law onto the political agenda, and are ready to push for it to be finally introduced when the moment comes. We’ve sent a clear message to MPs that we want real reforms including recall in response to the MP expenses scandal.
- We’ve stood together to say no to a secret inquiry into the Iraq War. We made sure our petition was seen by every MP on the day Parliament voted, adding to the pressure which changed Gordon Brown’s mind.
- We’ve been talked about in national newspapers from the Daily Sport and the Daily Mail to the Independent and the Guardian, as well as TV and Radio.
- We’ve joined forces with other organisations with similar aims to demand new rules to rein in lobbyists and new ways to have our say in political reform.
We’re still new, and we’re still learning. What’s your feedback for 38 Degrees, as one of the first 10,000 to get involved?
