MP Watch

We did it
On 20th July 2023 we successfully raised £2,686 with 53 supporters in 56 days

We are a UK grassroot movement working to support constituency groups in holding their MPs to their Net Zero commitments.

With further funds we would print publicity material and information leaflets tailor made for distribution in different constituencies 

“The first duty of the government is to keep citizens safe and the country secure. The Home Office plays a fundamental role in the security and economic prosperity of the UK.”

Most of us want to see more action on the climate emergency. Most of us also want to see higher quality decision making in government, leading to better public services, and a higher quality of life. 

Millions of people are increasingly tired of the self serving duplicity of many of our MPs who are often more beholden to the vested interests of those who would endanger the planet than to their constituents. There seems to be little reward for integrity in parliament and almost no price to be paid for routine dishonesty.

So up and down the country people are starting to hold their MPs to account. They are ensuring that their MP’s track record of honesty or otherwise can be clearly understood by every voter in their constituency in time for the next election. MPs we can’t trust are unfit for the job and should not be re-elected. If we can’t trust an MP to be honest on climate we can’t trust them on anything at all. And if they have been dishonest with us on anything at all, we can’t trust them on climate. 

MP Watch is an umbrella group which aims to build and support local constituency initiatives to monitor MPs’ understanding of the science and economic implications of climate breakdown, and their seriousness when it comes to action on climate. 

We are politically non-partisan, and engagements will be with politicians of every stripe who deny the urgency.

With this crowd funder, we hope to raise money to cover fares and hotel costs for visits to incubating Watch groups around the country.
