All the cool kids are doing it
Dear My MP,
I'm a constituent of yours and a genetics researcher at Thighmarcester University. My last job was in the Southern US, where many of our incoming undergraduates had been disadvantaged by inaccurate, religiously biased science teaching.
For this reason I am particularly concerned about recent news stories reporting the teaching of creationism in British schools (such as is encouraged by the ironically-named religious pressure group "Truth in Science").
I would be interested to know your views on this and whether you would be prepared to sign EDM 2708: "That this House shares the concerns of the British Centre for Science Education that the literature being sent to every school in the United Kingdom by the creationist religious group Truth in Science is full of scientific mistakes and fails to disclose the group's creationist beliefs and objectives; and urges all schools to treat this literature with extreme caution."

I'll keep you posted.
