My subversiveness gene is flaring up again

On Saturday, a letter arrived in the mailbox at No 69, addressed to Mr and Ms A______ . It was from the National Party, telling us we should vote for them because they are better (or words to that effect). As far as I'm concerned they score points for saving taxpayer dollars by using only one envelope for one household. Sadly they immediately lose them by assuming that the same surname means that my brother and I are married. ;-/

Clearly they got us off the electoral roll. OK so that document is open to the public. But, surely this stuff counts as spam?

I'm considering looking up some National Party members on the electoral roll and sending them letters at their homes, spelling out my personal agenda. What sort of thing should I put in such a letter, I wonder?
