Delivering our letter to Simon Burns MP
By Joe Fitzpatrick
Last November, Simon Burns MP compared 38 Degrees members to zombies. Over 90,000 of us were appalled by his comments and signed an open letter telling him so. Then, last week, ads appeared local papers telling Simon Burns to listen to his voters.
On Friday, local 38 Degrees member David Robinson made an appointment with Simon Burns and, along with other locals Ian Wilson, Tim Hatcher and Richard Lee, handed in our open letter to their MP.
With the local paper there to take pictures too, we can be sure that Simon Burns got our message loud and clear.
