What is the Gagging Law?

A very illiberal law is being proposed by the ConDem government, which will limit the amount of political campaigning that organisations such as trade unions, charities and pressure groups by allowing them to only spend a small amount of money. Big business of course will be unaffected.

Please people, check out the 38 degrees web site for more info and write to our MPs about this. There are 2 weeks to go before the vote. Because of the rule that all affiliates of some national group have their expenditure added up, even small and apparently penniless groups will get into trouble under the law if they are affiliates of 38 degrees, KONP, Greenpeace, FoE etc.
