gagging lawI had not heard of the proposed gagging law, which is to be debuted by our MPs tomorrow, until my brother John sent me some details today.

Basically, the law will slash the spending limits for third-party groups on campaigning for the year before any general election. Campaigns that have impact don’t cost the earth, but neither are they free!

As a keen supporter of numerous charities including Tenovus and the Prince’s Trust who would be hit like other community groups, I implore the MPs to rethink this very important issue.

On big issues of the day – whether or not to go to war, the future of our NHS, the environment, welfare, immigration etc – we’d all be gagged!
