Moral compass anyone?

Does anybody understand the Labour cancer leaflets story? I’ve listened to be about five BBC News reports and am no better off as a consequence. Labour apparently sent 250,000 cards out to women voters warning them that the Tories would renege upon Labour government promises for cancer tests. The question comes down to how those women were selected and why. If the Labour Party sent them out to women who its data insisted might be at risk from certain types of cancer, or were already sufferers, then it should not merely apologise, but the Prime Minister, if he knew about it, should resign. I hate to overstate the case, as you know, but it is hard to think of a fouler means of campaigning. Whatever the case, we need to know how Labour selected the recipients of the propaganda and once we have done this take steps to stop these scum accessing such data.  Or is this response disproportionate? One loses one’s moral compass at times like this.
