Why 'lobby groups' aren't working - and why it's all over the press...

A few weeks ago I blogged on the role of political campaigning in democracy - and in particular the role of groups such as 38 Degrees in 'lobbying' MPs and Ministers.

I'm fairly sure that Dominic Raab MP didn't read my post but he and his now infamous elusive email address went big in the press today, as a result of his attempts to fend off 38 Degrees and their 'independent minded' supporters who apparently struggle to construct their own, independent, sentences and arguments.

Here's the Guardian's article and Iain Dale's take on it.
