Dear Rt Hon Steve Brine MP, Conservative

We, being my fiancé and I are writing as local disabled activists in your constituency as we are furious to read that an article we found on the 7th November 2013 RE: Coalition MP’s: Taking All They can, Giving Nothing Back, naming and shaming at least 100 plus Coalition MP’s in an Opposition day debate on the 6th November2013, after the Labour Party put forward a motion to freeze household energy bills for 20 months which would take us up to the next general election. The motion was defeated with the government having a comfortable but not massive majority of 58.

We the people are not surprised that coalition MP’s blocked the motion. However we are very angry and could you explain why they blocked this motion.

We have a full copy of those who blocked the motion. We would however like to draw your attention to a specific number of MP’s the hypocritical Coalition ‘representatives’ who last week the Mirror revealed had put THEIR energy bills on expenses, yet who decided to vote against the freeze.

These people have helped themselves to OUR money to pay THEIR bills despite a £65,000 annual salary. Yet they are content to do nothing to stop private companies profiting from OUR misery.

How is the coalition going to justify this whilst Coalition MP’s can get away with claiming their massive energy bills, when ordinary people are being forced to pay extortionate energy bills which have gone up by between 8 to 10% which is crippling the sick, disabled, poor, vulnerable and even the Low paid families, not forgetting the elderly and infirmed, who are forced to choose between heating one room or to eat, with the cruel and damaging benefit cuts and housing benefit cap, not forgetting the cruel bedroom tax, which, by the way, we do NOT support in any way, shape or form!

How many more people are going to die this winter on top of the 22,000 sick, disabled, terminally ill, poor and vulnerable people pushed into extreme poverty caused by this cruel, depraved, despicable coalition “government”. It is sickening and not acceptable.

Living with chronic pain each and every day, being genuinely disabled and being forced to endure public discrimination for being disabled and by this cruel unjust government. How do you all sleep at night?

With this in mind we are asking you to explain how you our local Conservative MP and the coalition conservative party intend to help those who are struggling to pay their bills and keep a roof over their heads plus food on the table. We would also like to know why you claimed £1404.00 in expenses for your energy bills when an MP’s basic salary is at least £65000. Could you please tell me how we can pay your energy bills when we struggle to pay our own through cutbacks to our own benefits? Could you please explain this to us as we are at a total loss as to why we should be made not just to pay our own energy bills but yours as well!

Thank you for taking time to read this letter.

Yours faithfully
