I wonder why...
Jeremy Hunt's ministerial underling in the culture, Olympics, media and sport department - Ed Vaizey - has taken charge of overseeing the implementation of the Digital Economy Act.

The correct route to write to "Dave and Nick" is via your MP. If you write directly, then it becomes a "treat official".
While it remains true that if you write via your MP an official will draft the reply, you stand a better chance (i.e., better than 0.0) of getting serious engagement if you can engage your MP.
Don't rant, be cogent.
And (for the third time by me) if open networks and no vendor lock-in are good enough for smart meters they're good enough for everything else.
I wrote to himew before the DEB went through. He wrote back with a very nice letter saying if your not a Pirate you have nothing to fear.
And then didn't bother turning up to the debate. I don't think a letter to him will really help in this instance.
Our local LibDem Canditate is a complete *uc*er who lost 6% of his vote in our area. He also has a mail order bride. So we the local electorate don't have a lot of confidence in him. Something the LibDems will have to sort out if they want win Coventry.
Wrote to my MP. Not something I do every day of the week but I was very concerned about the "wash-up" business and the way the bill seemed to be destined to slide through, un-debated, at the end of the parliamentary session but I never actually mentioned any bill content. Got a letter waffling on about photographer's rights, which I never even asked about and then........guess what.........he never bothered to vote either! Waste of space.
... I wrote to my MP about this too. Told her I thought it was a bad bill, poorly written, wouldn't actually help them sort out any of the things they were trying to sort etc. and that I was extremely concerned about the lack of scrutiny it had undergone.
Got a letter back from her explaining that she would, under no circumstances, vote for a bill that hadn't been sufficiently debated.
"Great," thinks I, "I've exercised my democratic rights. Huzzah."
Day of the vote, I find out that not only has she voted for it, but she POSTED me a letter dated 2 days BEFORE the day of the vote explaining why she'd voted for it.
Glad she's out of a job now. The dole office is just down the road love.
