    No, do it yourself :p

    I'm guessing you meant 'sent', not 'send', but I couldn't resist

    Lol, ment sent, here is the reply (fast!)

    Just a note to let you know I really do not believe there will be enough time to do so before the election.

    Kind regards

    Geraldine Smith

    To put this into context, my email asked for it not to rushed in before the next election

    No, we didn't. If you check the official Parliament website (which is linked in the article) then you'll see it's only just had it's first reading.

    I started typing out a personal letter instead of using the template on the site, but gave up after about 2 paragraphs when I realised Mr. Huhne probably wouldn't read it anyway, and even if he did it would make little difference. He's probably got his work experience employee sifting through his inbox now to find the e-mails that are actually worth reading.

    sent email, Damien Green is usually not too much of a dick so it should be all good (living in Ashford in Kent btw) that 38 degrees site is super useful, saves a lot of hassle.

    Sent, but my MP is a Plaid Cymru member, so he has even less power than a LibDem MP :(
    It'll be interesting if I get a response.

    I don't live in the U.K., but that's pretty bad. I really don't think that politicians really understand the internet...

    In the House of Lords, yes. But it has been read only once in the House of Commons.
