It's worth being a member of the Federation of Small Businesses just to receive the various communications they send out. The latest invites me to a mass lobby of Parliament on 13th March, but fails to give any indication of what I'm supposed to be lobbying about. Probably it's their usual bugbears - red tape, employment protection for workers, health and safety legislation and... er... red tape.
The email from their regional official says: "Whilst you may have local issues to be raised with MP's, a little nearer the time we will advise you of the major national issues which the FSB is pursuing and which you could also raise during your meetings."
Thank God for that. My MP must be quaking at the thought of it all.
