Watchdog warns over Lib Dems' phone poll plan

Nick Clegg is said to be facing embarrassment after the Information Commissioner expressed "concern" over plans to bombard 250,000 voters with automated phone calls featuring a recording of the Liberal Democrat leader. According to the watchdog, "The Privacy and Electronic Communication Regulations forbid the use of automated unsolicited direct marketing calls to any individual who has not previously given their consent to receive such calls."

Has anybody told those guys from the US offering holidays in Florida or some such? I get them quite frequently and I've not said yes! I bet someone tipped off the Commissioner. I wonder who it was?
