Last night I was contacted by one of the Awkward Sods in the bloglist to your left. I was asked if I was interested in a follow-up to the original piece and of course I said yes. This particular awkward sod had received an email from a commenter who asked that the letter below be passed on to me. The only condition was that I protected the source. Not for any nefarious reasons, just to protect his/her anonymity. It was an easy condition to agree to, as their identity is not germane. The original letter to the MP, which I have seen, but will not be reproducing here, is merely an enquiry from an angry and astonished constituent to his/her MP.
What follows from the MP is not mind-blowing or earth-shattering, but I think it tells us several things. I won't analyse the response, but you, dear reader, are most welcome to.
