Alive and Kicking – by Nadine Dorries MP

nadine-dorries-mp-black-and-white1.jpgAlive and kicking have launched a ‘Name and Shame’ website, which could potentially be very dangerous for MPs with small majorities.

The site has collected over 5,000 signatures in the last few days and urges voters to contribute information regarding an MP’s voting intentions with regard to abortion.

We know as a result of polling, that 72% of the public want to see a reduction in the upper limit from 24 weeks to 20 and that Labour MPs are largely against this move.

I would not like to be a Labour MP who votes against a twenty week amendment, and be sat on a majority of less than 5000 because Alive and Kicking are going to make sure the electorate know exactly which way every MP votes.

In addition to this, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the National press piggy back on to the Alive and Kicking idea and start running their own name and shame campaigns.

I will be launching my own 20 week web site very shortly, but in the meantime if you would like to sign the Alive+Kicking petition click on the link below.
