Conservative MP Francis Maude today criticised Gordon Brown for not having an email address on the 10 Downing Street website: “Gordon Brown is spending taxpayers’ money on the latest digital gimmicks, from Twitter to Flickr, but can’t be bothered to give out a simple email address”.
Fair enough. But you’d have thought he would give out an email address on the contact page for his own website [link now dead]. Otherwise someone unkind person might mutter things about double standards etc, especially as his website is paid for by taxpayers’ money too. But you’d have thought wrong. (Though you can find his email address if you look really, really, really hard. And download a pdf. And go to the very last page.)
