Why the big rush Mr Mandelson?

The worrying news came today that the House of Lords have passed the draconian Digital Economy Bill. The bill is being hurried through without democratic process, and that’s just not how we should be doing things in this country. It’s clear that the bill is to appease the befuddled music industry, who are still living in a world before the home cassette recorder was invented.

If you’re worried by the speed and heavy handedness of this process, please consider getting behind the campaign on 38 degrees. They’ve set up forms to allow you to easily lobby your local MP by email. It’ll take only a minute (a little longer if you wish to construct the email in your own words).
