I have lobbied a Lord

I have now lobbied a Lord, namely Lord Stoddart of Swindon, to implore him to vote against a parliametary exemption from the Freedom of Information Act.

It is all a bit surreal really. I have written copious letters to my MP in the past. But writing to a Lord is a bit weird.

Through the "Write to them - Lords" website you can choose a random Lord or one with an interest in a particular subject, a connection with a particular place or your birthday (!).

I chose one with a connection to the county where I live, Berkshire. Lord Stoddart came up (pictured). He used to be Labour but is now "Independent Labour". It'll be interesting to see which way he votes.
