An anonymous reader writes "Next week, MP's will vote on new government plans to gag charities and campaigners from working during elections. If it goes through, from next May 38 Degrees and a whole host of other organisations will be banned from holding politicians and political parties to account like we do now. On the big issues, from the NHS to the environment, we'd all be gagged.
The gagging would be for one year before local / national / European elections!!"
