Hi,
this is the tweet / phone / email your MP toolkit
more info is available at http://kimondo.co.uk/tweet-your-mp/

You'll need web hosting that supports PHP, and a MySQL server - I've used PHPmyAdmin to upload the data file.

You'll also need an API key to use from TheyWorkForYou.com - these are provided free for non-commercial use. 

Please contact them if you're likely to make heavy use of this.

The MP datafile is available free on request - just drop me a line at http://kimondo.co.uk/contact

This makes use of the very useful TheyWorkForYou.com postcode to constituency lookup and Ruben Arakelyan's PHP API interface.

Note that this code contains a few legacy bits and pieces left over from when it was called Webtivist.

To install download these files and create a database on your website to store the MP data. Edit the settings.php file with the theyworkforyou.com API key and database login details. Note that you will need to apply for a API key from theyworkforyou.com/api - these are free for charitible use of 50,000 lookups per year.
