38Degrees site becomes focus for demands that MPs consider unpopular bill more carefully

The rushed process of getting the digital economy bill through Parliament – it had its first reading in the Commons on Tuesday night, having just had its third (and final) reading in the Lords on Monday night – has prompted an angry groundswell of people using 38Degrees to lobby their MPs to block it.

The newly-created page on the 38Degrees site lets people find their MP via their postcode, and then email them to demand that the bill gets a proper debate – or is abandoned for this Parliament.
