    Isn't the point of the All Party Parliamentary Group on ME to build a non-partisan consensus for change? Things are more likely to get done if the partisan stuff is put to one side. If a site like this is seen carrying endorsements for one party or another, other parties are likely to become obstructive on principle. Politicians are like that. :bang-head:

    Seems to me the ME Association have it right on this. Vote for whomever you want on whatever grounds you want, then lobby your MP, whether it's the MP you wanted or not, to join that group.

    @charles shepherd - now that the election is over, does the MEA have a form letter to send to MPs?
