I hate David Cameron and his cronies. I only disliked Blair and Brown and Labour. They were Labour, can't fault them for doing their thing. But David is betraying the Conservative Party with his schizophrenic policies. He and his Etonian man-child friends need to just go away.
The only way he can redeem himself is if he allows a true referendum on the EU.
Reading your post at your blog, you make excellent points. One thing though. Your lament over your feeling that your MP doesn't care is understandable, however...
Back when I was a political science student in university, we learned about the UK system and its similarities to and differences from the US system. One of the major differences is that MPs are much less independent than their counterparts in the US. It doesn't surprise me that there is a standard Conservative form letter on a given issue for MPs to send out to their constituents. If I were you, I'd see if I could find out if my MP is going to be around the constituency in a public forum and then go ask questions. If you get the brush-off there, then you have your true answer. Time for more direct action with a flash mob!
Have you thought about contacting some of the Lords? Back in the day, their function was to put a brake on stupid stuff like this coming out of the House of Commons.
