I think we should start emailing this dork and ask him to start explaining about the speed camera problem.

peter.batchelor@parliament.vic.gov.au

I know I will be.

Cheers,

We should make 1 really good one, get all the facts right, then send 300 of them all in one go.

That's an excellent idea.

Is there anyone who has experiance with this sort of thing? Possibly already has something drafted?

We've been here before. I seriously condemn form letters or form emails in this case because it shows you are a sheep. It lacks merit and credibility.

My advice is that these people are your elected representatives. they must represent your concerns whether they like it or not and they must cover the entire demographic. So, don't be scared - write what you think and feel in a nice clear manner.

I would suggest the following format:

1. Introduction explaining the main issue
2. Use current evidence and observations to explain the problem
3. Now outline the problems with what you see
4. Provide your suggested alternatives
5. Give reasons why you think your alternatives are better
6. Summarise very briefly what you have suggested

Now the important part. Many MPs are ex lawyers etc etc. They are trained to read the first and last paragraphs, and will then read the message again by reading the first and last sentences of each paragraph. After writing your email read it in the same way and ask yourself if the intent of what you are saying is understood. Edit as required.

Go for it boys! (and gals)

That's good advice, I'll use this as my basis.

Thanks,
