According to Tom Steinberg, the head of MySociety and who spoke to Lisa, what actually happened was :-
- Miss Greenwod She used google and ended up on Hazel Blear's page on TheyWorkForYou.com
- She clicked through from it to Hazel's official site
- She found the 'contact me' page on the official site and then clicked on the email address, which, using a mailto: tag popped up her work email client.
- She wrote and sent her fatal email, which was delivered from her DCSF email account, not her Hotmail which she'd normally use.
The actual course of events makes Lisa’s actions seem more foolish than I and others originally thought. That said I still think the action of the department was a overreaction.
Lisa Greenwood – Foolish, foolish, foolish
DCSF – OTT. OTT, OTT
