Is this the best email of the election?

As clickbait goes, it is rather eye-catching, and I was intrigued.

So I clicked, I signed the petition, I shared on Facebook. If I wasn’t convinced after the first question, the email then went on to invite me to click two further buttons which repeated the message in slightly different ways.

But there is a killer PS:
