Demand a People's Vote! Write to Your MP

One of the ways to make your voice heard is to contact your MP. They are supposed to represent the interests of all their constituents, even if you are not entitled to vote in UK General Elections, for example if you are a citizen of another EU country, your MP is still supposed to represent you and your interests.

You can contact your MP by writing to them, by email, or by arranging to talk with them at a constituency surgery. In general MPs will pay more attention to a letter or a request to visit their constituency surgery than an email, as it shows a greater level of commitment.

If you write to or email your MP you should try to:-

  • Keep your letter or email as short and to the point as possible, as MP's have limited time available to read constituency mail
  • Keep to one, or at most two, issues per communication. It’s better to write several letters on different Brexit related issues over a few weeks than try to cram it all into one letter
  • Make it personal. If you include examples from your professional or personal life to illustrate the points you are making it will make the letter or email more persuasive, as well as giving your MP ammunition when they discuss the issue with colleagues
  • Include your full name, address and phone number, so your MP can confirm you are a constituent and contact you if they would like to discuss it further
  • Keep it polite, as rude or threatening communications will only be counterproductive. 

We have several MP's who campaigned for Remain in the referendum including a self confessed Europhile Karen Lee (Lincoln) and Nick Boles (Grantham & Stamford) who provided excellent reasons for remaining in the European Union to Ealing, Hammersmith & West London's College students before the referendum.

What they need is to know they will have your support next time they have to choose to put country before party, and you should also give them your personal examples of how leaving the EU or Single Market or Customs Union will affect your family, your business, your research project, your public service or your home town.

They don’t need you to discuss what the Customs Union is at length, although there would be no harm in reminding Conservative MP's of Grantham born Margaret Thatcher's views on the single market They do need to hear how how leaving it will affect your business or your family in Lincolnshire.

There is an excellent template for you to use produced by Women4Europe which can be accessed here.

Please also ask them to support the People's Vote on the Brexit Deal!
