More Taking Advantage of the Dead

It seems that it's not just the Labour Party that want to turn someone's death to their advantage.

Following the tragic death of Eric Forth MP (Cons - Bromley and Chislehurst) the LibDem election machine is kicked into immediate gear and sends out the following email:


Subject: [LONDON-LDS] Bromley and Chislehurst update

... The local party want to clear the decks ready for what's expected to be a busy time. They would very much appreciate extra help to get their Thank You Focuses out in Town Ward and Plaistow and Sundridge wards.

Please call Toby Philpot on 07962 676897 if you can offer your help, and perhaps bring over a few of your colleagues from your local party?

There is a fast train service to Bromley South from London Victoria -- about 15 minutes journey time. There is also a stopping service on the same line, and others from London Blackfriars. Other stations in the constituency include Bickley and Bromley North (latter on a branch line).

No doubt Toby can provide extra information.


The small print: this email was sent using the Liberal Democrats' email list server. Visit to find out more about the lists you can join or control your membership of the list.


Thanks to Guido for the email. The contact details are all on there if you want to voice your horror. Ming has given them a telling off but I doubt they're listening. Rest In Peace Eric.
