Dear Mr Philp
 
Thank you for your recent campaign letter.
 
However, I am listed on the electoral roll as ‘Ms’ not ‘Mrs’, and I find it somewhat old-fashioned (not to mention presumptuous) that someone in your admin department felt obliged to alter my title.
 
As it happens, I am married, but I choose to use my maiden name with the ‘Ms’ for the reason that men do not have their marital status mentioned in their title, therefore why should I? 
 
I would expect this sort of presumptuous grammar from an estate agent’s mail-out, not from a political party trying to attract new voters. 
 
I look forward to hearing from you.
 
Yours sincerely 
Ingrid Stone
 

The Response (by email):

 

Dear Ms Stone
 
I am very sorry for our mistake, the database that we use is directly from the electoral role (sic), but sometimes there are mistakes made.
 
I have changed your title on the electoral register.
 
Sincere Apologies
Chris Philp
Parliamentary Candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn
