    Default Tweeting your MP

    After the FT's article about Hammond's proposed IR35 changes, I decided I wanted to get in touch with my MP to ya'know, at least say I tried to complain... So I went on to find out how best to do this and one of the governments suggested ways to get in touch with MP's was via Twitter....

    This got me thinking that if a decent number of us elected to do this under the same hashtag, we might actually just get something trending?! I know most of you over 40 probably aren't entirely sure what a hashtag is and wonder if I'm talking about SEEE SHARP the programming language, but it was just a thought... :-)

    I did also consider however than once the permy brigade see it, they will all default to "Well why shouldn't you pay the same amount of tax as us you robbing b*******s" and it might actually backfire.

    My local MP is Oliver Wetwin

    Already written to him. Got the standard guff he sends to everyone as a response.

    Did you write to him asking what arrangement of Christmas decorations he'd like to see in your new garden centre In all seriousness are you any further forward with that yet?!

    No fecking point.

    My MP, regardless of party, just forward my carefully crafted letter to the appropriate government department, who send me their standard response.

    I did get an essay back about ID cards under Blair's government. So I think they have a couple of standard responses - the short version and the essay.

    That's just across the border in Somerset so I'd need to ask a different MP:
