Probably the single most effective action any of us can take is to contact our MP and discuss with them why it is so important that we halt Brexit and remain a member of the EU. Even if you are not entitled to vote in UK General Elections, for example if you are a citizen of another EU country, your MP is still supposed to represent you and your interests.

You can contact your MP by writing to them, by email, or by arranging to talk with them at a constituency surgery. In general MPs will pay more attention to a letter or a request to visit their constituency surgery than an email, as it shows a greater level of commitment.

We have added a list of local MPs and their contact details below, and you can also find out who your MP is, and their contact details, on the UK Parliament website.

If you write to or email your MP you should try to:

    • Keep your letter or email as short and to the point as possible, as MPs have limited time available to read constituency mail
    • Keep to one, or at most two, issues per communication. It’s better to write several letters on different Brexit related issues over a few weeks than try to cram it all into one letter
    • Make it personal. If you include examples from your professional or personal life to illustrate the points you are making it will make the letter or email more persuasive, as well as giving your MP ammunition when they discuss the issue with colleagues
    • Include your full name, address and phone number, so your MP can confirm you are a constituent and contact you if they would like to discuss it further
    • Keep it polite, as rude or threatening communications will only be counterproductive. Channel your anger carefully!

    It’s worth remembering that MPs in our area like Daniel Zeichner (Cambridge), Heidi Allen (South Cambridgeshire) and Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) who campaigned for Remain in the referendum, and have all since rebelled against their party whips in Brexit related votes since then, are familiar with the main issues and arguments in the Brexit debate.

  • What they need is to know they will have your your support next time they have to choose to put country before party, and they also need your personal examples of how leaving the EU or Single Market or Customs Union will affect your family, your business, your research project, your public service or your home town. In short, they don’t need you to discuss what the Customs Union is at length…though they will be interested to hear how leaving it will affect your business or your family in Northern Ireland.

    Don’t forget to ask them to support the People’s Vote on the Brexit Deal!
