Charities are bullying, says MP

I read a couple of weeks ago that Charles Walker, MP for Broxbourne, says some charity communications amount to bullying!! Speaking at a Media Trust panel discussion he said: "Charities often write to MPs asking us to write to ministers to express their disquiet. They assume their concerns must be our concerns. That’s almost bullying, to be honest. Lots of the lobbying MPs are subjected to is blunt and cackhanded."

So there's an MP that really wants to listen to people working for a better society - I wonder what he thinks of the Big Society idea and the increased role charities are expected to play?!

And pray what is it when Mr Walker, or his minions, is on the door step trying to persaude the occupier to vote for him?
