Dear Sirs

I wish to alert her Parliamentary Select Committee that the Information Commissioner’s Office has been operating in a legal void for over a decade. In particular,I wish to draw your attention to the following facts

1. The ICO do not recognize the ISO 9000 series for QA/QC.

2. The ICO do not recognize the ISO 14000 series for Environment Protection.

3.The ICO have been using an unlawful Court Precedent from the Court of Appeal EWCA Civ 454 15th May 2015 Dransfield v ICO. Thousands of FOIA  requests have been denied under the Dransfield Vexatious Exemption. Perusal of the Court of Appeal will support my claims that the CoA decision was reached via a corrupt mindset, please see para 68. Moreover the three CoA Judges made NEW LAW. Judges apply the law,they don’t make new laws.

The ICO decision database will shows thousands of vexatious decisions have been made by the ICO and they are acting in concert  with the Government to pervert the course of justice. 

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Dear Sirs

I wish to seek legal redress against the ICO, whom, have breached my data and human rights under the GDPR 2018. My name, Alan Dransfield  which has been unlawfully published in the ICO decision notice 25 times.  The ICO never publish the name of the complainant and they know or should know they should not publish my name either.

I call upon the GRC to instruct the ICO to remove my name from their database and I do also believe the GRC can enforce a compensation figure  for the unlawful  publishingof  my name. I also ask the GRC to find the ICO in contempt of Court. I really do not believe it is necessary for me to submit an application form to the GRC as the following ICO holds compelling evidence that the ICO have breached the GDPR.

with thanks

Yours  sincerely

Dear Sirs
I believe my data protection rights have been breached by the ICO. In particular, they published my full name in one of their Decision Notices 25 times, the ICO ref # FS 50802258 dated 6/6/2019. I was not informed they would publish my name and I did not give them permission to do so.
My name has also been published in ICO Decision Notices (DN) guidelines, public documents etc over 10,000 times since I became the Vexatious Court Precedent in Jan 2013 via the Upper Tribunal GIA/3037/2011 which was upheld by the Court of Appeal EWCA Viv 454 May 2015.

I also believe the Cabinet Office via their Brexit Dept DExEU have breached my Data right for publishing my name on line as an integral part of their Brexit debates.

One major foundation stone of the FOIA 2000 is that it must be the FOIA request NOT the requester which must be classified as VEXATIOUS, thus there is no legal requirement to have my good family name published 25 times in one single ICO Decision Notice.

Ignorance of the law cannot be used in defence of a legal argument. I maintain my data breach is driven by the ICO egregious conduct and maladministration by the ICO.

My understanding of the GDPR 2018 is my name Alan M Dransfield is classed as my data and should not be used by the ICO in their decision notices. In the event you would concur with my prognosis, I would instruct you to seek compensation from the ICO and the Government. I would suggest/recommend that the ICO pay me £10 pounds for every time they have used my F

family name in pursuit of their FOIA/EIR/DATA . I would estimate the Dransfield name has been unlawfully used by the ICO approx 250,000 times give or take 10K. You may well wish to seek a higher compensation benchmark, that’s down to you.

I would also ask your law company to investigate libel and defamation of my good family name when my name has been unlawfully published. Prior to the ICO allegations, my character was impeccable. Hence the ICO allegations against me have had a devastating effect on me and my family and friends.

I understand the terms of your legal advice would be no win no fee situation.
As this email mentions ICO and Elizabeth Denham in person, I consider it prudent to cc the ICO in my mailing list.I look forward to your response.
With thanks
Yours sincerely

Dear Sirs

Polite follow up please to subject title as I am awaiting leave to appeal from the FTT to the UT.

As you are aware I am on record claiming egregious conduct maladministration  by the FTT  Registrar in this case. I would like to remind you that the ICO are applying a blanket vexatious exemption on ALL my requests. They are on record from their Mr Adam Sowerbutts that ALL my FOIA requests  will  be treated under section 14/1 and sect 50(2)(c) whatever the subject which is a major breach if my civil, legal and human rights and the FOI 2000

Dear Sir

I believe you have just elevated Nicky Morgan to the House of Lords because she is holding a gun to your head  regarding the Egregious Conduct and Maladministration by Elizabeth Denham at the ICO.  Nicky Morgan Sec of State for the Digital Culture Media and Sport has turned a wilful blind eye to thousands of vexatious refusals in which the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent has been used. Indeed you used the Dransfield Court Precedent  during your tenure at the Foreign Office, ditto for Theresa May whilst she was Home Secretary and PM, ditto for Michaels Gove whilst SoS for Ministry of Justice. All of your Government Departments are currently using the Dransfield Vexatious Precedent (DVP) and your DExEU were prolific users of the DVP.

I call upon the PM Office to call for a Public Inquiry into the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent which is being used on a daily basis to cover up serious and heinous crimes. This can be verified by a simple ocular inspection of the Court of Appeal decision by the Court of Appeal (2015) EWCA Civ 454 Dransfield v ICO. In particular para 68 clearly supports my allegations of egregious conduct and maladministration. At this juncture the Dransfield Vexatious BS is the Tory party silver bullet to cover up.

serious and henious  crimes, paedophillia, fraud and theft of public funds etc.
