Don't do this.

If the relevant council does have any Internet connectivity, it's likely
to be an experimental, isolated box.  Mail bombing them will not hurt
the people responsible for the decision, but it will mean some poor
sys admin gets to work late cleaning up the mess.  They will conclude
that the Internet is full of irresponsible idiots, and cease their
involvement with it.
