We have a new researcher starting in London in June. I am posting this on his behalf but please get in touch with me and I will pass on any messages.

I’m moving to London for a new job in June as a parliamentary researcher and looking for fairly central/connected location to commute into Westminster.

I’m easy going, friendly and enjoy socialising so would love housemates that would enjoy a drink after a long day at work! Looking ideally for 1st June/End of May move in.

Clear the Lobby!

Clear the Lobby (clearthelobby.co.uk/newsletter) is a free email newsletter that explains the laws MPs are voting on each week in plain English.

In just two  minutes of reading time a week, subscribers can get a good idea of the issues that politicians are set to debate, much of which is not covered in the mainstream media.

The newsletter goes out every Sunday, allowing enough time for people to write to their MPs if they want them to vote a certain way. Clear the Lobby has won praise from other political transparency projects like MySociety, which runs TheyWorkForYou.
