Save our NHS: 644 petitions – but not your constituency
By [email protected]
Hello! Wondering why you’ve ended up here?
If you live in:
- Bristol South – your MP is Dawn Primarolo
- Epping Forest – your MP is Eleanor Laing
- Chorley – your MP is Lindsay Hoyle
- Buckingham – your MP is John Bercow
- Eltham – your MP is Clive Efford
- Rochester and Strood – you don’t have an MP right now!
That means that 38 Degrees members in your constituency aren’t signing one of the 645 petitions across the country asking MPs to vote to reverse the worst bits of NHS privatisation on Friday. Why? Because Dawn Primarolo, Eleanor Laing, Lindsay Hoyle and John Bercow are speakers in the House of Commons, which mean they don’t get to vote. And Clive Efford is the MP behind the law they’re voting on, the National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill, so he’ll be fully onside! And if you’re in Rochester and Strood, well – ain’t no MP at the moment.
So although you can’t get your MP behind this campaign, here’s a way to help other 38 Degrees members’ turn up the heat on their MPs. If you use Facebook or Twitter, click the buttons below to share the campaign with your friends, family and followers. At least some of them won’t live in one of the five constituencies!
