We need you to get involved!
There’s been a flurry of activity recently and we’d like your help; London mayoral candidate Diane Abbott has put forward an Early Day Motion to the House of Commons to debate the dubious merits of the Garden Bridge http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2015-16/240
But she needs more MPs to back her up or it won’t stand a chance of being discussed so please contact your MP to get them to support this motion as it affects everyone. Here’s how to write to your MP:
Just a simple message like this will do:
“Dear [MP name]
Please support this EDM http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2015-16/240 to challenge the public funding allocated for the private Garden Bridge. This is a totally unnecessary tourist trap given that these are supposed to be ‘times of austerity’. We need your help to question the misuse of public funds for a vanity project that won’t even be a public right of way.”
