I've just been looking at the thread entitled "Simon Hughes
- MP. Nil Response!" and I thought it might be interesting to some SE1-ers to share a recent experience of mine.
About two weeks before the election (when all the candidates would have been very
busy) I was an undecided voter, so I sent an email to my three candidates asking for their opinion of the Digital Economies Act, and telling them that their response would dictate the way I would vote. The responses were:
: No response at all.
: Weasely email response ("Liberal MPs voted against the Bill" -- failing to mention that many more of them voted for
Labour (Kate Hoey)
: email response, followed a week later (but still before the election) by another (differently worded) response, delivered by post.
You can guess who got my vote.
