I arranged a meeting with my local representative to discuss the Government’s ISP censorship proposal. It was a fairly good meeting, although Mr McMullan was fairly non-committal. He did say that he has always been against censorship and that he would make up his mind in due course.
I left him with this information pack (TeX source). There isn’t much new information here, but hopefully it’s presented in a way that is easy to understand.
Mr McMullan yesterday announced he intends to retire at the next election. Hopefully this makes him a little braver to speak up in his party. The only other point of note is that Mr McMullan said that he had far fewer people approach him for meetings on this than he expected. He didn’t say how many from each side, but did say that those who did see him had a considered opinion.
