I knew it had happened, buit not really thought about it, until I got this email:
Dear TheyWorkForYou alert subscriber,
We\’re just writing to let you know that you are subscribed to
an alert that won\’t email you any time soon – for example, because
the MP or Lord has left Parliament. Your affected alert is:
* Bob Spink, left 12 April 2010
\”Left\” is such a wonderfully neutral verb in this instance, isn\’t it?
