Dear Shantanu,


People queueing for hours to buy petrol to get to work, empty shelves in supermarkets, energy bills set to skyrocket. [1] These are just some of the issues people across the country are facing right now. [2]


It can feel overwhelming, but we know real change can happen when, during a crisis like this, huge numbers of people start to speak out. Politicians will be nervously watching the brewing crisis unfold - seeing images of long queues at petrol stations on the news and reading headlines about rising energy bills. If they know that their own voters are feeling the impact, it could pile on enough pressure and force them to come up with solutions.


So here’s the plan: Hundreds of thousands of us are reading this right now. If we each share our experiences in a short survey, we’ll start to build a picture of how this crisis is playing out in Gillingham and Rainham and what voters like you, Shantanu, want to see happen next.


Your MP Rehman Chishti, will then be sent the results of the survey in a powerful report. If hundreds of us in Gillingham and Rainham take part, they’ll be forced to notice us.


So Shantanu, will you let us know about the impact of these issues on your daily life right now? It'll take just two minutes to complete. Here's the first question of the survey to get you started:


How concerned are you about the current supply of goods like food and petrol?


VERY CONCERNED


SLIGHTLY CONCERNED


NOT VERY CONCERNED


NOT AT ALL CONCERNED


NOT SURE



Right now, MPs are coming together for their party conferences. [3] It’s a time when politicians discuss the most important issues facing the country - and what to do about them. Imagine if our MPs receive the results of this survey - taken by hundreds of thousands of us - in the middle of their conferences? Together, we could become the topic of conversation.


So, will you help us create a powerful report for MPs, explaining how this current crisis is affecting their constituents, and what we expect them to do to fix it? Use the button below to take the short survey. Here’s the first question again to get you started:


How concerned are you about the current supply of goods like food and petrol?


VERY CONCERNED


SLIGHTLY CONCERNED


NOT VERY CONCERNED


NOT AT ALL CONCERNED


NOT SURE



Thanks for being involved,


David, Megan, Ellie and the 38 Degrees team

Survey:



How are the current issues the country is facing affecting you?

How concerned are you about the current supply of goods like food and petrol?

Very concerned

Slightly concerned

Not very concerned

Not at all concerned

Not sure

Thinking about fuel shortages, have you experienced any of the following:

You can select as many options as you like

Unable to purchase fuel due to no supplies at your local petrol station

Queuing longer than usual

Unable to get to work because of lack of fuel

Unable to visit friends and family because of lack of fuel

Other

When it comes to your energy supplier, have you experienced any of the following?

You can select as many options as you like

Your energy supplier has shut down, so you've been switched to a new supplier

An increase in energy bills

Had to spend time finding a cheaper alternative to switch to

Had to make difficult decisions about budgeting because of rising prices

Other

When it comes to the availability of food, have you experienced any of the following?

You can select as many options as you like


Empty shelves and not enough stock in your local supermarket

Have had to travel further to find the food and goods you need

Rising prices of the food that is available

Witnessing people stockpiling essential items

Other

Do you have a message you would like to share with your MP about your experience of the above, or about what you would like them to do to help fix the situation?

For instance, can you share an experience you've had recently on any of the issues in this survey? Did you tick 'other' on any of the questions above? If yes you could share other difficulties you're facing around the cost of the living crisis. Is there action you would like to see MPs taking to help tackle it?

We should reduce the stringent tests that HGV drivers have to take in order to qualify for Tanker delivery and Convenience Stores delivery; use the Army to fill the shortage of drivers in the meantime, not bring in any foreign HGV drivers for short periods or longer periods to give a chance for young men and women to learn how to drive HGV and Tankers so that we train them up to become self sufficient in drivers. This means short term difficulties but we would then be building a new nation post Brexit. On food supplies, we should also try to reorganise the farming sector so that small-holders can start farming for fruit and vegetables as well as meat and dairy products and train fruit and vegetable pickers of our own country to prevent immigration which is the biggest single curse on the United Kingdom because it increases the damand for goods and services, as well as housing and needs to care for immigrants in the hospitals and in schools. That would be my advice. We need to buckledown and create a cohesive nation that is not dependent on others for much of our needs, increase our manufacturing capacity in transport and technological goods, and encourage the greatest number of tourists to earn foreign exchange. We should also go for renewable energy resources to reduce our dependence on imported gas and use nuclear power to fill in the shortfall, using coal wisely and go for offshore oil exploration around the North Sea and the Falkland Islands.

Are you happy for us to share your views with the media using your first name and consistency?
