Hi Catherine

I agree about the timing. I think the trouble was, it was necessary to wait until the petitions started up again after the general election and then whilst wanting to get it running again as soon as possible (because these traps are out there as we speak), to also make it that the BHPS regular mailing was included in the timescale.

I think it is unfortunate that we didn’t know it had restarted until Penny discovered it on 19th January, when it must, presumably have begun on 1st Feb as it finished on 1st June. I do think it might have been better to send the emails out much earlier, so that everyone had more time to campaign. But I suspect part of the problem is that there is very little personpower and a lot of things to be done.

But we are where we are and can only try to make the best of it. We could still get there, if everyone got at least 5 other people to sign and pass the message on. That, it seems, is the part that doesn’t seem to be getting through, other than to a small minority. That, I feel, is what we need to concentrate on.
