Making a difference?

In my earlier post about playing journalist, I cited Matt Robson as saying that the best way to make a difference was to target Labour MPs and convince them to take a stand. But how?

Well, the Clerk of the House has a handy list of MPs, including their contact details and email addresses. That's a good place to start. A polite email reminding them of what New Zealand and the Labour Party are supposed to stand for, and asking them to convince their cabinet colleagues that we're a better country than this would be good.

I'm not sure if this will make a difference; our MPs could all be bastards who don't listen to the public. But we have to try.
