...Waiting for my local MP to shift into gear and reply to another EDCM request.
After the last request for him to make a promise to do something should he be elected I doubt very much if he'll do anything this time either, after all, this latest request actually involves putting in some effort.....
I would like to apologise for sounding bitter and frustrated. I would like to, but I can't. I AM bitter and frustrated at being ignored by the very people who I helped employ....
This is the pertinent section of the email sent to me by the EDCM.
Every Disabled Child Matters (EDCM) is launching a new briefing: 'Disabled children: an agenda for the new Government' on 6th July at an event at the House of Lords. Email your MP and ask them to attend!
It only takes a couple of minutes to take the action and the event is a fantastic opportunity for your MP to hear from disabled young people and their families about their experiences, and for MPs to find out about EDCM's recommendations for the new Government.I immediately sent a request to Mr Phillip Lee. I received a reply from his secretary:
Thank you for your email to Dr. Lee regarding the Every Disabled Child Matters campaign.
I shall ensure Dr. Lee is made aware of your concerns and replies soonest.
I appreciate that MPs are probably very busy what with the summer recess coming up, but that is what they have staff for! it's known as delegation....sigh
What does it take to get this person on my side??????
Answers on a postcard please....the winner gets a week on my coffee table!
No....it might not be much of a prize, but at least I'll have answered you.
I'd make a lousy MP then, wouldn't I?
