Started getting tweets and emails last night about how people could make submissions to the truncated select committee on the Video Camera Surveillance Bill.
Because of the swiftness of the process, the normal democratic process was not able to be followed.
I was approached by someone at around midnight and asked whether I could lodge their submission. Which of course I did this morning.
In the absence of an electronic process (which is now available I understand) I told people via twitter and facebook they could send submissions directly to me and I would lodge them. I’ve had a steady stream all day.
Keep them coming tonight people. This is democracy in action. It may be flawed. But it’s yours.
Update: email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Or any of your MPs. That’s what we’re here for
