Dear Richard Beynon, I write to you regarding the ongoing discussions in the European Parliament about reforms to EU fishing policy. Despite the public protestations of British MPs such as yourself in support of British MEPs such as Chris Davies, the explicit backing of hundreds of thousands of people in Britain, plus hundreds of thousands more people across Europe who have heard of the...

Letter to/from Paul Nuttall MEP (Fish Fight)
Dear Constituent Thank you for your email regarding reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). The CFP has, quite frankly, been an economic and environmental disaster in which the UK fishing industry and fish stocks have suffered terribly. The draconian quotas system, forced on to us by the EU, has led to the throwing of dead fish back into the sea. For example in the North Sea, nearly...

This year, weapons supplied by this country have been deployed against democracy protesters in the Middle East and North Africa. There was public outcry when it emerged that the UK has sold equipment including tear gas, crowd control ammunition and fire arms to Bahrain and Libya. Yet the UK is still supplying arms to authoritarian regimes today. Despite continuing repression, the government has...
Letter to/from Chris Davies MEP (Fish Fight)
Thank you very much for your e-mail regarding EU fisheries policy. I agree completely with the contents of your e-mail. Last year I set up the European Parliament’s ‘Fish for the Future’ group which has been campaigning hard to bring about a sustainable fisheries policy in Europe. Crucial votes on the future of the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy will take place around June next year. That’s...

In parliament yesterday Simon Burns called 38 Degrees members “zombie-like”. We are not zombies, we are concerned citizens who work together to stand up for what we care about. Let’s tell Mr Burns that participation in a democracy is not a cause for insult. Please sign the open to letter to Simon Burns now: http://www.38degrees.org.uk/im-not-a-zombie Thanks, baldmosher™

Letter to Lord Campbell re NHS changes (2)
Dear Lord Campbell, I wrote to you prior to the recent vote in the House regarding the proposed NHS reforms to express my serious concerns that some parts of the reforms would put the NHS in danger. NHS reforms were not part of any party’s manifesto before the last general election. David Cameron said he “loves” the NHS and yet, with absolutely no mandate from the people...

Dear Hazel, Please forgive me if I ignore your own personal issues with re-election for the moment. I was interested to read about the proposed constituency boundary changes in your newsletter. After the social genocide brought about by the recent closure of the city’s only remaining maternity ward, and the brief excitement caused by the BBC moving here, Salford’s identity is...

Letter to Lord Campbell re NHS changes
Dear Lord Campbell, I write to express my concerns with the proposals to restructure the National Health Service. I’m sure you are already or being made well aware of the finer details of the proposals and the damning analysis of some of the proposals from pressure groups such as 38 Degrees, who are funded entirely by public donations and campaign for fairness for all....
Letter from Conservative MEP regarding EU animal...
Dear baldmosher™, Thank you for your email regarding animal welfare during transportation. I have received many queries from concerned constituents who are appalled by the current situation and I am taking this issue very seriously. I have previously tabled a written question to the European Commission asking what actions they will take to protect the welfare of horses during transportation and...
Three strikes... and you're hanged
I grew up in Chell Heath. Formerly a mining town, one of the seven that make up the conurbation of the city of Stoke On Trent, the landscaped slag heaps of the nearby Chatterly Whitfield mine tower above, a permanent monument to the town’s heritage. The 1980s left Chell, Stoke, and many areas of the country mortally wounded. Thatcher’s ideological crusade against British industry,...

Dear baldmosher™, On behalf of myself and my colleague Arlene McCarthy MEP I would like to thank you for your letter raising your concern over the welfare of animals transported across Europe. While we are aware that the Animal Transport regulation, which came into force in 2007, was a step forward in terms of setting down tougher rules on the welfare conditions of animals during...

Dear Hazel, Further to our previous correspondence on this matter. I would like you to read these legal opinions — paid for by donations from thousands of 38 Degrees members — which are thorough and independent. You can read it here: http://www.38degrees.org.uk/NHS-legal-advice/ This legal advice shows that my concerns before the government’s “listening exercise” are still...
Blame the Parents?
Is absent parenting really to blame for last week’s uprising? Many parents have frogmarched their previously well-behaved teenagers to the police this week. Many have done the same to their unruly teenagers. That doesn’t necessarily mean those parents are or are not instilling good discipline at home, but by dragging them to the police/courts they show their teenager that they are...
“The problem is that the whites have become black — a particular sort of violent, destructive, nihilistic gangster culture has become the fashion — and black and white, boy and girl, operate in this language together; this language, which is wholly false, which is a Jamaican patois, that’s been intruded in England, and this is why so many of us have this sense of literally...

Dear baldmosher™ Thank you very much for your recent letter regarding reform of Europe’s Common Agricultural Policy. I agree with much of what you say regarding the need for access to healthy afood for all people in the EU which is why Liberal Democrats in the European Parliament strongly support agriculture in less favoured areas to ensure that food production happens locally throughout...

21 July 2011 Dear baldmosher™ Thank you very much for your recent email regarding the transport of animals in Europe.

Lib Dem MEP slow to respond, but better late than never say I. Dear baldmosher™ Thank you for your e-mail. I am sorry I have not been able to respond before now.

The matter is now in the hands of the Council where Denmark, apparently, has changed its mind in...

Reply from Nick Griffin's office
Dear baldmosher™ Thank you for your email. Mr Griffin thanks you for your comments, and for taking the time to share them with him. The Establishment political parties have made it clear that they are neither willing nor able to tackle sensibly the problems we face. In contrast, the British National Party’s policy proposals are founded upon common sense politics and principles. It is, for...
Letter to Nick Griffin, MEP
Dear Nick Griffin, Whilst I find your party utterly reprehensible in so many ways, I would like to congratulate you on your appearance on Radio 5 this morning. You were not systematically abused as you were by the audience on Question Time, and I believe free speech is far more important than merely silencing unwanted views. To wit, I’ll be voting Yes in Thursday’s referendum, as I...
Moments of Revelation
I once suffered from depression. I would say momentarily but with hindsight it was a culmination of a series of long term problems and my own lack of desire to just sort them all out. That particular situation was easily resolved by my own volition; as such, I was lucky, but it still took some balls and a moment of revelation. I did, for a long time, think but that antidepressants should generally...
