First Tier Tribunal

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

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Public Authority using this rubbish decision for their own ends

Further proof that PA’s nationwide are using the Dransfield vexatious decision to withhold data. See para 18 of this decision.

Not only do we have ambiguity on VEXATIOUS, we now have similar rubbish on DECISION definition

Dear Madam

Under protection of the FOIA 2018 please provide me with the following information  ref the subject title:

1. Total  government funding for DATA Protection. 

2. Funds spent on GDPR  specific case  between May18 and May  2019.

3. At this juncture the ICO have not taken a single complaint and used their enforcement powers to assist any DATA Complainant. Why is this?

4. How many ICO officials are working directly on GDRP cases?

I fully understand that I do not need to provide you with my motive  for this or any FOI request. However, in the interest of clarity and probity the ICO are not assisting the general public whose data rights are being infringed other than advise the complaint to seek a Judicial Review.  Why should Joe Public be cost impacted of a Judicial Review when the ICO are the oversight Authority of the GDPR 2018?

The ICO are not backward coming forward to issue fine on the Huge PLC like Facebook and Virgin etc,  but the ICO do not appear to be remotely interested in the average Joe Blogs who data rights have been infringed by a public authority.

with thanks

Yours sincerely
