Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the ICO article and I draw your attention to Christopher Graham’s recent ref “SAVING TO THE PUBLIC PURSE”.

My response to that is hogwash. If the ICO is so concerned about the public purse costs, why the hell is he spending thousands of pounds fighting the Dransfield FOI cases?

He also goes on to state: “the need to shine the light of transparency in the deepest corners” or some other twaddle.

As far as I am concerned there is no transparency, accountability or security (TAS) at the ICO as they were switched off by the Wikely Vexatious Decision ref GIA/3037/2011 Dransfield v ICO.

As reported earlier to your office, the ICO is in meltdown and are in the Last Chance Saloon. Ditto for the DCC and the FOIA 2000.

In a nutshell, Mr Bradshaw, if I lose my Court of Appeal case public authorities nationwide will hand down vexatious decisions on a whim, which in essence are GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARDS and Joe Public will be gagged forever. On the other hand if I win my Court of Appeal Case, I will become the saviour of the FOIA 2000. Obviously I prefer the latter to happen. Maybe you can recommend me for a Knighthood.

Where have you been whilst all these shannagins have been going on? Surely not sleeping on the job again.

New bulbs for transparency for your office.

For your information, action and files

Alan M Dranfield.
