The Conservative party has sent letters to pensioners outlining their claims to have improved the country and the dangers Labour poses.
They also included in the letter a pre-populated donation form – and both letter and form name a “Mr Youmustbe F***ingjoking” as their intended recipient.
Twitter user Laura McCormack tweeted pictures of the documents, which arrived in an envelope with the official Conservative party logo:
In fact, the letters suggest that whoever was running the mailmerge had used ‘Youmustbe F***ingjoking’ as a placeholder while completing the address data, as the address was correct for the couple receiving the letter.
Which in turn suggests that whoever was compiling the merge had a low opinion of the Tories’ claims – if this was done by a Tory staffer, then it seems even the Tories don’t believe their claims of competence and achievement.
The full letter, in all its glory:

A Tory spokesperson – which confirms the letter was sent by the party, in spite of claims to the contrary by some Conservative supporters on social media – said:
It is unacceptable that this letter was sent out and we apologise for any offence caused. We are currently investigating this matter to ensure it does not happen again.
Adding insult to injury, the pre-completed donation form invites Mr F***ingjoking to send money for the ‘Campaign Manager Fund’ – presumably the same campaign manager who sent out this campaign?
Still, nice to know the Tories have the same opinion of their claims and promises that we do…
