Re: London Rates Relief Based Talk WRITE TO YOUR MP!!! I think I have set out some good arguments above and I am happy with my wording and I think I have done a good job with it so back to the topic of - Writing to MPs. Writing to MPs is an essential way for how UK government is run. It is the channel for ordinary people to represent their views to central government. It is "your voice" if you like. Your local MP will pass this on to the people in power in central government. In the case of this SCIENTOLOGY RATES RELIEF thing then if you want central government to change its mind about the way things are done then you HAVE TO WRITE TO YOUR LOCAL MP. If you want this business rates relief removed then it is unlikely to happen unless a good number of people write in to their MPs about it. And if people don't then central government are unlikely to do anything as they have no ground feel for what the public want and what needs to be done. I have done a lot of work on this, as you will all know, but at the end of the day I am happy to see this whole thing slip away if there is no public support and I too measure public support by how many people write in to their MPs to express their views. I am happy for you being happy to do nothing and let the cult take money away from genuine charities and abuse people. If you are happy with this situation then there is no need to write in to your MP. If you are unhappy with the situation then write in. Either way, I support you. I am happy that I have given you good enough ammo to use if you decide you need it. Edit: I thought I would add my personal opinion that one person writing in to their local MP about this is equal in value to an Anon demonstration with 200 people present.
