For U.K. voters via our friends at Wear Red - Stand up and be counted, on Facebook
Please share this with everyone you know and hassle them to register [to vote] as soon as possible. It literally only takes 5 minutes to complete it....if you were on the Electoral Register previously you will still need to re-register.
The Government has introduced a new deadline for voter registration (reducing the previous timescale by a year) to stop Labour mounting a registration drive which might confound their plans to gerrymander the constituency boundaries.
So please help by sharing this and the message that by not registering before December you are helping make a future Tory Government more likely.
If you want to complain about the utterly cynical way the whole boundary review is being conducted, then please contact the Boundary Commission (details below) and/or write to your MP
Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Telephone: (0)20 7276 1102
Letter to: Boundary Commission for England, 35 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BQ.

This week a Stop the War open letter, Time to stop bombing and make peace in Syria and Yemen, was signed by actor Mark Rylance, singer Charlotte Church, Unite union leader Len McCluskey, Caroline Lucas MP, musician Brian Eno, Nobel Peace Prize winner Mairead Maguire, writer Michael Rosen, Clive Lewis MP, and many more.
Popular opposition to further war played a crucial role in stopping Cameron's last push for bombing in 2013. We need to up the stakes once again.
