Peter Hitchens urged people in England to write to their MPs to tell them to vote against the government's COVID-19 Winter Plan on Tuesday, or face losing their seats.
The journalist, author, and broadcaster announced his mass letter-writing campaign on Friday in a series of tweets.
"Imagine if every MP wakes up on Monday and finds his or her inbox *crammed* with e-mails saying 'Stop strangling the country, or you face losing your seat'," Hitchens wrote.
"What matters is that many write," Hitchens repeatedly emphasised, later adding, "Numbers are the only power we have."
"The Conservative Woman is giving its full backing to Peter Hitchens’s campaign for a mass write-in to MPs this weekend on the lines of ‘If you vote to destroy the jobs of others, don’t expect to keep your seat,’" the site says.
The main opposition Labour Party has so far supported all of the Tory government's previous lockdown measures, and provided enough votes for them to pass Parliament despite growing rebellion among Conservative MPs.
Anti Lockdown Protests Breach Lockdown RulesConservative MP Charles Walker expressed his concern on Tuesday after a 72-year-old woman was arrested for protesting outside the Houses of Parliament.
He asked the Deputy Speaker of the House, Dame Rosie Winterton, to bring the prime minister or the Home Secretary Priti Patel to the House of Commons to “sort this mess out.”
“She was an old lady, robbed of her dignity for having the courage to protest about having her fundamental rights and those of my constituents and others removed,” Walker said.
“I will not be supporting the government’s legislation on Wednesday, because as we drift further into an authoritarian coercive state, the only legal mechanism left open to me, is to vote against that legislation,” Walker said about the four-week national lockdown, which later passed in Parliament.
“If my constituents protest, they get arrested,” he added.
Walker said the UK needed a written constitution “underpinned and enforced by the Supreme Court” to guarantee the “fundamental rights of our constituents."
On Friday the Met reminded those planning to protest on Nov. 28 that protests are not allowed under CCP virus regulations.
