Mike Freer v 38 Degrees: Round 2

In this weekend’s Sun column Guido brought you Round One of Tory MP Mike Freer’s get-your-own-back campaign against 38 Degrees. Last night Freer explained his motives to Guido:

“I answer most personal emails myself and these auto campaigns actually dilute the service I can give. I hope to meet 38 Degrees to discuss.”

Seems 38 Degrees aren’t backing down, however. They insist to Guido:

“Mike Freer is an MP. Sorry he doesn’t like his voters getting in touch, but that’s part of his job. His voters have every right to contact him, and I’m sure they will continue to do so, particularly if he is doing stuff they don’t like. 38 Degrees will keep helping them make their voices heard. I’d be very happy to meet Mike and explain this to him over a coffee.”

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
