Both emails were sent out by the central party organisation, not the candidates' teams (see imprint below which was on both emails)
I received them both, one minute after the other, in my main inbox. Apparently, according to the Toddster, Some ridiculously over-sensitive spam filters may have put Chris' in the filter file due its use of the appalling phrase "Dear friend".
So in that sense, Chris' team are guilty of using a phrase used by thousands of LibDem campaigners before them. Terrible incompetence isn't it?
