A little tale was told to me today about Keith Simpson, Tory MP for Mid Norfolk and an accusation he made against a fellow MP from a different party.
In Buxton (Mid Norfolk), there is currently a by-election ongoing, and last weekend Norman Lamb, who is Lib Dem MP for the adjoining North Norfolk constituency dropped by to give the Lib Dem campaign some support.
Keith Simpson, who had pulled up in the same car park huffed his way over to Norman Lamb and demanded to know why he had not received a message from Norman informing him that he would be campaigning in his Keith Simpson's constituency.
"You have", replied Norman, "Have you checked your e-mail ?"
"Err, no" replied Keith Simpson.
The lesson for the day ? Learn to use e-mail regularly or get yourself a Blackberry Mr Simpson !
