In the last week I have received two e-mails from potential Lib Dem Euro candidates asking for my support.
No doubt they hoped their e-mails would impress me, and others, in to voting for them, but instead they have had the opposite effect.
I am not against them because they have spammed me with e-mail. No, I am rather pleased to see candidates using modern technology. No, what I don't like are the errors in mailings.
One candidate, who contacted me last week and attached he e-leaflet, fails to mention at any point the words "East of England" or a single issue affecting the East, whilst the other candidate who contacted me yesterday spelt his name wrong on the "From" parts of his e-mail (replacing a "w" with an "m"). So despite their best efforts, they've lost my vote.
Oh, and I know my spelling and grammar are not always perfect, but I am not seeking votes, so you are welcome to point out errors in my blog if you wish by way of revenge, but it won't bother me greatly.
