Of course not, there much too much spam in email :-).

More seriously I would suggest "don't". If the Parliament Members get
p*ssed enough they could stop listening completely to any sane opinion
on spam and email and make even more insane descisions. After all,
they have the money and the power, so if they need 100 extra people
to cope with incomming spam to them, they'll hire those 100. I can't,
so I'd prefer to hope they'd listen to sanity... not much hope.
