I know politicians get a bad press, it can be dispiriting sometimes as to how you are treated. This email received by a London Labour councillor gobsmacked them slightly when they received it:
"I am terrible at politics. I hope you will forgive me for the rude tone of my email. I was replying to you as a councillor and neglecting to remember you are a person too. I'm sure the situation here will resolve itself amicably and I chastise myself for letting it get the best of my manners."
