I've just signed up at the Tea time for change website here. They are holding a lobby at Westminster on Thursday and have over 100 MP's who are planning to attend and have a cup of tea with a 1000 plus supporters to discuss taking a stand over global poverty. I have emailed my MP. I doubt I will be able to make this event but I will try and support this campaign whenever I can.
Guests include "Mitchell MP, Secretary of State for International Development, and Harriet Harman MP, Shadow Secretary of State for International Development,...Jan Ravens, comedienne and impressionist from Dead Ringers and Spitting Image"
For once (please, please don't tell anyone) I actually s-u-p-p-o-r-t this Government over their commitment to match the Labour promise to spend 0.7% on overseas aid (imperfect as it is). There is obviously a split in the Government and we all need to support those few elements in it who are actually worried about their soul.
