THE Keep Me Posted Campaign, which I chair, is celebrating its fifth birthday.

We have campaigned since day one on behalf of your readers for their right to choose, without additional financial penalty, paper bills and statements as it helps them manage their finances more easily, or if they, for whatever reason, can’t go online.

A coalition of over 120 charities, trade unions and consumer groups support our campaign, many of whom will be familiar to your readers. The bottom line is that we award the Keep Me Posted ‘Best Practice’ Mark of Distinction to organisations who promise to do the right thing by not forcing their customers online or forcing them pay to stay offline. I would like to say ’thank you’ to your readers for their support .

If they would like to help even more could they a) write to their MP asking if he/she supports our campaign and will sign EDM 909 ‘Keep Me Posted’ and b) write to their bank, their energy supplier, their phone company and ask them if they are signed up to Keep Me Posted and, if not, why not?
