    Dear Dr Jiggens, myself and Dr Robert Austin are researching ASIS’s connection into the Chilean coup. In regards to your book “The Incredible Exploding Man” do you mind if we contact you about your findings on ASIO?
    Kind regards

    Dear Dr Jiggens,

    I am advocating the UK establish a Royal Chartered Commonwealth Cannabis Centre of Excellence to provide evidence on which government institutions can base cannabis policy and to provide economic opportunity.

    I will shortly be presenting a proposal to the Home Office via my local MP Dominic Raab in the Justice Ministry. The legalisation of cannabis is to be debated in the House of Commons on October 12th 2015.

    I’m interested in your research into Sir Joseph Banks.

    But first… have I managed to contact you?

    Yours Faithfully

    Matt Heenan
