Jacob Rees Mogg

In late 2010 Transition Keynsham had it’s first meeting with Jacob Rees-Mogg MP to urge him to push serious measures to combat climate change as part of the Big Climate Connection.

We recently met again (May 27th) with JRM to see how far he had gone to push the climate change measures.

It is clear that we don’t see eye to eye on issues such as climate change and peak oil with Mr Rees-Mogg, but we still feel it is important to keep an open channel of communication with the person who represents us in our system of democracy. We will continue to meet with JRM on a six monthly basis to inform him of all the great work we are doing and if we’re lucky we may even inspire him to do join us in doing so.

So far we have presented JRM with flyers & literature about all of our projects & events, given him hand-made knitted carrot & flower broaches for himself and his family and given him a 2nd hand copy of the Transition Handbook – as it was voted 5th on the MP’s summer reading list.  What a lucky chap!
