In the previous post I've demonstrated the farcical process of template politics by Vince Cable and Jo Swinson at the Department of Business Innovation & Skills.
They have both quite simply been processing identical template response letters to legitimate correspondence from constituents who had raised concerns about being blacklisted via their MP's.
This is how it works
1. Constituents raise concerns about blacklisting with their MP's.
2. The MP's communicate these concerns to Government Ministers and in one of the examples provided, The Home Secretary, Theresa May.
3. Vince Cable and Jo Swinson respond with identical template response letters.
4. The MP's forward the identical template response letters to their constituents.
5. End of story...
I've provided 15 - 20 cross party examples from a
selection of MP's including the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George
Osborne who all received the exact same template response letter from either Cable or Swinson.
Swinson to Cable - Template Letter
What's even more disturbing and deserved of it's very own post here is that on 12 February 2013, Swinson writes to Cable using the very same identical template response letter they'd both been sending out to MP's.
SWINSON TO CABLE LETTER - 12 FEB 2013 (Pg1)
SWINSON TO CABLE LETTER - 12 FEB 2013 (Pg2)
Cable had received an email from a constituent on the evening of 23 January 2013 following the debate in the House that afternoon.
CABLE TO CABLE EMAIL - 24 JAN 2013
This was forwarded to Cable at the Department for Business Innovation & Skills on 24 January 2013 and Swinson responds to Cable with the standard template response letter on 12 February 2013.
You just couldn't make this stuff up.
