Scrap EDMs website online
June 30, 2009 5 Comments
Instead of just writing about what a waste of money (in my view) Early Day Motions are, I decided to do something about it. Action is better than words! Well the www.scrapedms.com website is online, and emails have been sent to all MPs asking them whether they would support scrapping EDMs.
I still can’t see a downside to getting rid of them? If you know of one please let me know. The upside is savings of over £500,000 a year. Given political parties want to reduce the cost of democracy – how about supporting this initiative?
PS – This isn’t a party political campaign. There are plenty of Conservatives who think EDMs are a great use of taxpayers money. I and I suspect many other just have a different view!
