How NOT to email your MP

posted on January 26th 2009 in Democracy & News with 0 Comments

Nick Palmer MP wrote last week to his mailing list:

"Just a quick note to say that the email addresses of MPs who Greenepace
think might sympathise with them over Heathrow are being swamped with
thousands of identical emails that they've asked supporters to send.
The effect of this is unfortunately that we're unable to receive email
from our own constituents on Heathrow or anything else, as our
mailboxes fill up faster than we can clear them."

Clearly Greenpeace chose not to read the simple guidelines published by WriteToThem.com about form letters and only writing to your own MP.  It's a really poor performance by Greenpeace who should be absolute masters at this type of campaign.

We would love to hear your comments
