Mei Heron reports:
National Party leader Simon Bridges maintains that a system error led to people who signed petitions then being emailed and asked for donations.
People who signed up to join two petitions – against scrapping flights to Kāpiti Airport and one to save the Lumsden Maternity Centre in Southland – also started receiving emails from National asking for money to fight the government.
Read more on Radio New Zealand and yeah, that would tick me off, too.
But it happens here, too. If I try to sign a petition, then I’m hammered with emails and stuff I do NOT want to receive. Why can’t I just sign a petition and then opt-in to mailings?
