|KEITH VAZ, MP
For those who follow us on twitter, they know we're all for naming and shaming, and naming and praising, MPs, who are given a chance to respond.
So this relates to a recent experience we had requesting Keith Vaz update the expenses on his website since they did not include anything from the last 4 years. As it turns out that is something that is publicly available on the IPSA website. However rather than indicating as such or simply ignoring the request, Keith went from following us on twitter to blocking us. Not exactly a supporter of transparency in these times of austerity!
Keith was subsequently contacted by email to provide an explanation for his action - while this was not provided, Keith's office in response indicated interest in BritCits' work as apparently Keith is very interested in all matters related to immigration. When it was pointed out that we were in fact still awaiting a response from Keith on emails sent to him last year on this very issue (that he is apparently so interested in) and requested an update on the still unfulfilled promise to take forward the recommendations of the APPG on Migration report in Keith's role as Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, his office went quiet. Hmmm. Feel free to contact Keith
to ask when he will deliver on his promise.
For any positive or negative experiences you've had of MPs please do share. At the end of the day whether they act in such a manner or not, they do work for us
