The email I recieved from Friends of the Earth this morning headlines with 'Not All MPs are Cowboys' - declaring that going to see your MP need not be a 'terrifying' experience nor ' turn into a gunfight'. Then moves on to 'Love Your MP' - linking to Irma's testimonial that MP's aren't, in fact, so 'scary'. They include a guide to lobbying your MP including a step by step guide as to how to meet your MP, when he/she might be on holiday, and what to do when you eventually find yourself face to face.
