    He is PPS to Rachel Reeves who is Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Danny Alexander's opposite number).

    In general, we are getting more support from Labour and LibDem MPs than the Tories.
    That's just typical isn't it. When in power Labour MP's just weren't interested in helping or listening to us. Now in opposition they are our best friends....

      Which may be because Labour and Lib Dems see an opportunity to rock the Tory boat. More significantly the Tories now see the potential 'windfall' tax take evaporating before their eyes leaving them with the challenge of replacing the notional loss. Thieving B'Stards.

          If you donate to the campaign you will have all the toys in the arsenal to make your point to your MP if he continues to feed you the party line.
          Hi and thanks to all the contributors for their help. I have been following the thread for a few years as I am affected through another provider of the scheme. There is always good advice by some of you guys on here.

          I am not currently able to donate to the campaign (as I don't have a contract at the moment) and I am trying to keep enough saved for the worst case scenario. However, I would be happy to donate in future when I'm in a better position to do so.

                    We need to be careful because "you know who" are monitoring the forum and we want to keep them guessing.
