One of my earlier posts referenced a Matthew Parris article in The Times (and yes I know I’ve promised a considered post on balanced parliaments – it will come eventually). Curiously I got a letter through the post the other week from a current member of the Liberal Democrats Federal Executive that enclosed a photocopy of the very same article and the suggestion that I “might be interested” in it.
Now as far as I am aware I have never met the person who sent me this letter, although I vaguely remember sitting across from him in a hotel lobby once, and I have no idea why he would think that I would be interested in this particular article. Obviously he could have read this blog, but then he would have known that I was already aware of the article and had no reason to inform me of it. So the reason why I have received this particular missive remains a mystery to me.
Of course, it would have nothing at all to do with the current elections for places on the Party’s federal committees. Oh, no.
