UK Government's Tony Blair is a Mass Email Spammer

6 comments

Tony Blair emailed 1.8 million people who signed a petition against a proposed road tax that would charge UK drivers by the mile:

Initial estimates suggest a tracking scheme, with prices depending on location and the time of day, could cost drivers up to 1.34 pounds a mile in the busiest areas at rush hour.

Drivers in London already pay 8 pounds a day to enter the city centre, a radical congestion charge introduced in 2003 against strong opposition but which has cut traffic.

how does this stuff make it through...

spam is generally considered commercial and certainly not emailing people who signed up on your web site with their email address. Spam has less to do with the size of the list and more to do with the intent of the mailing.

Cabbage, do you smoke crack?

Not Guilty.....

My headline was 'Spam?'

Whoever amended obviously has a potential career working for The News Of The World or The National Enquirer. How about 'Tony Blair ate my hamster' next time.

DG, the only crack I'm interested in doesnt smoke at all well.
