Tory MP Who Opposed Same Sex Marriage Tells Gay Voter Not To Bother Contacting Him Again
Laura Hawes changed her name to Laura O’Sullivan when she married her girlfriend Jess last year.
Dear Stewart Jackson,
You sent me a letter, I wish to inform you that it was sent to the wrong name, Hawes is my maiden name. As of last October I am happy to say I am married, And have therefore changed my surname to O’Sullivan.
And as my Wife and I enjoying our rights to an equal marriage, something that you did not support we will not, in no un certain terms, be voting for you.
Please never write to me again.
Mrs Laura O’sullivan
Just a few hours later, she received this response.
The feeling’s fully mutual.
Please feel free to never bother me again.
MP for Peterborough
After posting the email exchange on Facebook, O’Sullivan has been deluged with support.
“I didn’t expect a response at all so when I got such a blunt one I felt the need to share with my friends on Facebook. I didn’t expect the message to be shared so much and the support has been really nice and appreciated.”
BuzzFeed News has reached out to Jackson for comment but he is yet to respond.
