With Labour due to propose a motion to abolish the Bedroom Tax, prominent anti Bedroom Tax campaigner Richie Venton sends out the following appeal for everyone to take action
URGENT APPEAL FOR ACTION ON THE BEDROOM TAX! – before this Tuesday 12th!
We’ve helped force Labour into putting a Motion in Westminster this TUESDAY 12th Nov to ABOLISH the vile Bedroom Tax!!!
– so PLEASE PILE THE PRESSURE ONTO MPs before TUESDAY morning
You will know we lodged an online Petition about 6 weeks ago demanding Ed Miliband move an immediate Motion to Abolish it NOW – not some time after the 2015 Westminster elections, as he’d belatedly promised at the Labour conference. It’s had an impact. Labour is proposing a similar Motion in parliament this coming Tuesday 12th November!
In theory this could mean it will be scrapped next week – if enough pressure can be applied to MPs from ALL parties before the vote. Including the LibDems, if they apply their own conference decisions.
So please take five minutes to fight for that:
– PLEASE send an email to all your local MPs spelling out why they must vote to scrap it on Tuesday – you can contact them via either TheyWorkForYou.com or WriteToThem.com
– PLEASE sign our online Petition (if you haven’t already) which goes directly to Ed Miliband, at change.org/organisations/ssp
Every extra ounce of pressure on them helps.
– PLEASE also ask a few friends or acquaintances to sign the online Petition TODAY – before the vote on Tuesday – it could make all the difference. And ask them to email their local MPs too.
Tell them how we forced this vote to happen in the first place.
Feel free to just forward this email to people you know as a shortcut to asking THEM to do what YOU are doing to try and banish this abomination of a benefits cut.
Thanks for your time.
Yours in unity,
