Reply from the government!

On the 1st February Polyanna Penguin posted a very informative article about the changes being made to UK disability benefits.

I wrote an email to my MP and today got home to this:

A letter from my MP's office to say he agrees with my email and that some of the mobility requirements have been relaxed on Friday since consultation but that he will be bringing this up in parliament on Monday (yesterday) and that he is extremely concerned about the issue.

That was a bit of a surprise! I write quite a lot of emails to MPs (usually after a glass of wine, when I get angry about politics!) and normally just get an email response. I also only sent the email on the 1st Feb - good to see he's on the ball.
