Was It Something I Said?

My letter about proposed changes to the copyright act triggered this rather bizarre response from a member of Peterborough MP Dean Del Mastro's staff:

Please confirm and advise it has been passed on to Dean.
Even though she is not respectful we will be.
Alan.

Alan -
I think you intended your note for someone other than me.
Best regards,

I am pleased to hear that you welcome feedback from all constituents. That is what I would expect from my Member of Parliament and his staff.

Best regards,
Ann Douglas

I hope I never have to ask my MP to assist with an urgent matter affecting the well-being of my family. I have a feeling that the experience would be uncomfortable to say the least.

It's all quite sad isn't it.

Wow... that is odd.

Sheesh, Wilson. It seems he as well as Dean suffer from
Self-Importance. This type of psychosis is definitely bred by political power (or proximity to it). There is no cure, in fact it breeds dishonesty, cowardice, because the Cons just don't understand the simple and balanced meaning of accountability. So sorry Ann you were subjected to it all first hand.

OMG!
