If you haven't faxed your MP, do it now. In fact, in light of this admission, do it again!
Dear Mr Tony Colman,
Further to my fax of last week, I now understand that the proposed extensions to the RIPA are only intended to codify what is already happening.
I voted for this government on the grounds that it was intending to introduce human rights legislation, a freedom of information bill, and had a commitment to civil liberties. Instead, I have ended up with a government that has provided us with the greatest erosion of civil liberties that we have seen in Britain.
I am saddened to see your promises betrayed in this manner.
