Monthly Cartoon and alt.guides
Parliament is a serious place, and the Palace of Westminster and constituency offices are filled with hard-working, dedicated professionals engaged in the important business of running the country. Yet even the most committed need time for rest and recuperation, space to kick back and unwind, and opportunities to take a sideways look at their workplace, employers and even their political masters. Our alt.guides offer a sidelong view of life working for an MP, and include monthly cartoon from Hoby.
Updating the Guides
Now that we have moved the site over to WordPress we have started going through the guides to ensure that they remain relevant, useful and accurate. You may find that some guides are ‘retired’ (Blade Runner style) while others are merged and modified. Don’t forget that you can find old – and therefore not necessarily current – guides on the copy of the old website that we transferred over.

Important Information about Safety and Security
The latest version of the Members’ Personal Safety Leaflet is now available on the intranet. This is not just for Members; it’s vital that their staff read it as well. W4MP can’t emphasise strongly enough the importance of your reading this and taking appropriate action.
Whether you work at Westminster or in the constituency you should read this.
