Pledge “theywork”

"I will deliver a printout of my MP's page from http://www.theyworkforyou.com to 10 other houses in my street but only if 100 other british people will do the same."

More details
We believe that the most important thing happening online in this election is the explosion in information and services made available by non-partisan volunteer third-party sites like http://www.TheyWorkForYou.com.

TheyWorkForYou.com's MP pages are rich in facts about how your MP represented you since the last election. The information is neutral, and drawn straight from official records. As well as a detailed breakdown of key issues (including Iraq, fox hunting, and foundation hospitals), we have every speech, every vote, attendance, expenses, commercial interests. We think that this info deserves sharing, and we want to publicise the site. Unlike the political parties, we have no marketing budget, so we need your help.

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

Comments on this pledge

  • I would pledge to do this, however my local MP has stood down. (Ruislip-Northwood -- the new Conservative candidate is Nick Hurd, son of Douglas Hurd; the Lib-Dem candidate is Mike Cox, whose campaign literature indicates he considers this to be a 'two horse' race.)
    David Mackinder, 14 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • I will deliver Roger Casale's pathetic voting record - linked to his obscene expenditure of £20k a year on hotels - to avoid travelling 11 miles to Wimbledon at night. Whether 100 sign or not.

    Thank you and Good bye Roger

  • I think what you’re doing is brilliant and that you should definitely receive some money and publicity. God willing, you will!
    I had never written to an MP before going to your site. Now, I’ve read wodges of Hansard and realize that it’s not impossible to know when MPs are lying.
    I am intending to download and post 20 versions of your page on our local MP, Anthony Steen.
    I shall also be circulating all my friends with your web-address.
    Best wishes, Oliver.

  • Wow, pretty interesting what you're doing.

    And £20k a year on hotels? What a waste of money.
  • Excuse my ignorance ... but what does mean MP page?
    I found it also in other websites speaking about it but never understood it... also lookin on google dictionary it does not translate it well to Italian :)
