I recently emailed all Irish MEP’s in relation to an European Parliament vote on amendments in the “Telecom Package”.
The content of the email was fairly straightforward and brought a few important issues in regards to this vote to their attention and asked if they could let me know their position on these issues.
The response I got to my email was shocking!
TWO! Yes, that’s correct. I received 2 replies. As we have 13 Irish MEP’s that’s a 15.38% response rate. Interesting fact is that both responses were from female MEP’s. Respect & thanks to Kathy Sinnott & Mary Lou McDonald.
But that’s not it; over the last few days I have received notifications via MS Outlook that 4 MEP’s (or their staff) have deleted my email without reading it! Now I do realise that the issue in question was voted on last week but this indicates three possibilities:
- They did not read my email before the vote.
- They did not bother replying.
- They regualrly delete emails without reading them.
I’ve been asked to “name & shame” so here it goes:
Let this be a warning to anyone considering voting for these muppets!
