Earlier this evening, I was in the Smoky Drinky Bar, which was quite busy at the time. Among those present was VapingPoint Liz (aka the Last Furlong). After I’d read out something I’d been reading today, she asked if she could read out a letter she’d written to Theresa May earlier this year, to which she hadn’t yet had a reply, in part because other events intervened, including a General Election.
As I listened to her reading it out, I wished I was recording it on video (I will only record the Smoky Drinky Bar with the prior consent of those present in it). And when she’d finished I asked if she could read it out again, for me to record, and publish on my blog (and also in the Smoky Drinky Blog). Liz readily agreed, but said she could record it herself, and send me the link. She did that an hour or two later.
So here’s her re-recorded letter to Theresa May:
I usually post new stuff on my blog at around midday. But on this occasion I decided to put it straight up on my blog at 11 pm.
I hope some other bloggers publish this video. I hope it goes viral. She’s asking questions of our Prime Minister that really need to be answered, questions about the way smokers are being treated. They’re questions that never get asked in the mainstream media, or on the BBC. It’s only via the internet and YouTube that people like Liz can get their voices heard.
Maybe one day she’ll even get a reply from Theresa May.
P.S. Liz’s letter and video are also published on her own blog.
P.P.S. Today (Saturday) Emily and I are going to try to record a bit of the Smoky Drinky Bar at 7 pm UK time. If you don’t want to appear on video, stay away. I’ll be locking the bar during the recording. Liz won’t be there: she’d celebrating her 41st wedding anniversary.
