HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CONTACT THE CANDIDATES WHO WANT TO REPRESENT MEMBERS OF THE BHS?
It is possible to find out the address, telephone number and e-mail address of the Queen, the Patron of the British Horse Society
All the candidates for election claim they want to represent members of the BHS and speak up for their interests.
But how can they represent members of the BHS if members are unable to contact them?
Horseytalk.net tried to contact them.
None of them give their addresses and/or telephone numbers on their election literature.
None of them are given in BHS literature.
None of them could be found via Google

Horseytalk.net e-mailed Mark Weston, Director of Access, Safety and Welfare, asking him for the e-mail addresses of all the candidates.

Trying to drum up interest in the election.
Would like to send questions to the candidates
Is there any way I could get their e-mail addresses?

I have asked Emma Day, Director of Marketing and Communications, to get back to you re this.
All the best,

Emma Day, Director of Marketing and Communications replied
Due to the Data Protection Act 1998 I am unable to provide you with the personal data of candidates.
Director of Marketing and Communications
Thanks for your reply.
Seems odd that whatever the Data Protection Act says, it is possible to contact candidates standing for public office.
However it occurs to me that it just might be possible for the BHS to ask the various candidates standing for election whether they would like their telephone numbers and/or e-mail addresses made available to the people they are asking to elect them.
SEEMS ODD THAT IT IS EASIER TO FIND OUT THE TELEPHONE AND/OR E-MAIL ADDRESS OF THE PATRON OF THE BHS THAN IT IS TO FIND THE TELEPHONE AND/OR E-MAIL ADDRESSES OF CANDIDATES FOR BHS ELECTIONS
Except, of course, Bob Milton,
Which is why he must be everybody's FAVOURITE for election
