My MP, Roger Williams, voted with the Coalition. Not a massive surprise (although disappointing) seeing as he’s a LibDem. We also live in Wales so it doesn’t really effect us.

Yet.

My MP, Dr Alan Whitehead. There’s been a couple of completely unrelated issues for which he has not supported my views but on this one…… Thank you so much.

Had a response from my MP, Anne Mcintosh (Con) , Thirsk & Malton today. She voted with the coalition (unsurprisingly), but spoke in the debate and raised some concerns about lack of detail in terms of the level of protection, and the lack of recognition of the role that woodlands can play in protecting communities against flooding. I’m going to follow up on these concerns and ask a few more pointed questions

My North Shropshire MP is also SoS for NI, Owen Paterson. I emailed him (again) with questions on the sell-off and his reply (only ever by letter he doesn’t ‘do’ technology) is posted in the West Midlands section of the Forum. I didn’t see Paterson in the HoC chamber during the debate. Paterson voted yes and will continue to vote yes for the sell-off. Paterson only ever votes the Tory party line, he is in a mega safe Tory seat and has no need to listen to non-tory constituents. He is anti local eco initiatives, eg windfarms. I have also found out his personal finances are large enough meaning that like the other rich Tories he has a Blind Trust. I believe we have woodland in South Shropshire under threat of sell-off.

THE FORESTS BELONG TO THE BRITISH PEOPLE, NOBODY ELSE. LEAVE IT ALONE. MONEY IS’NT EVERYTHING. HANDS OFF.
