Dear Mr. Lazarowicz,

I write to you today to express my concern at my understanding that the Labour Party will not oppose the government's retrospective legislation on workfare. The bill seeks to retrospectively excuse the DWP from reimbursing wrongly sanctioned claimants.

This, to put it mildly, is illiberal hogwash and sets a dangerous precedent. When citizens defeat the government in court, it can overturn the court ruling retrospectively with primary legislation – effectively making the government above the rule of law.

I would appreciate that you vote against, or provide a detailed explanation as to why you will not vote against it.

I hope this email finds you well.

Yours sincerely,

Scott Macdonald
