    The only thing I can think of is my dad's old e-mail address is on here. Do you think they've gotten into my computer or something like that and got my address, we've had phone taps a couple of times. Maybe cuz I was doing an article and I logged onto the BNP's site for their manifesto.....why why why?

    Maybe I'm missing something but isn't it simply an unsolicited email from a civil servant? Report it.
    The Sun could make a headline out of it. After all, is this all that Labour's army of civil servants get round to using their computers for???

    Not to mention the increase in tax to pay for their diversity awareness courses, sexual harassment seminars and team building excercises?

    Its not really a headline maker - Lonely Civil Servant Seeks Woman With GSOH and OHAC non smoker preferred. Obviously they are getting paid far to much and have far too much time on their hands for our own good.
