I plan to celebrate the re-establishment of an English Parliament in 2007

Any English person wanting an English Parliament write to me with a letter simply saying

"I demand an English Parliament be established in 2007"

Include your name and address to validate the campaign (I will not contact you).

Put "theyworkforyou" in the bottom left hand corner, so I can inform the site as to the number participating. I will deliver the letters personally to 10 Downing St.

I have 100s already and more arriving in dozens daily.

Some people are sending me mini-petitions with several names and adresses on the same letter with the demand above.
