Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham
As you are aware, the ICO have instructed court bailiffs to
recover nearly £4000 legal costs in connection with The Court of Appeal Case
C3/1855/ 15th May, Dransfield v ICO.
Are you not aware that a public authority cannot use taxpayers money to seek legal redress?
Therefore, please advise your bailiffs to cease and
desist harassing me for such legal costs.
I will take this opportunity in submitting a FOIA request to
the ICO for all cases in which the ICO have pursued legal costs against any
FOIA complainant/requester since Jan 2013.
Yours sincerelylan Dransfield

Ms Elizabeth Denham
Please see the following statement from the Anglian Water
Authority, who claims they have no liability for the FOIA 2000.
Such statements are, at best, misinformation and at worst published to circumvent the FOIA 2000. It beggars belief the Anglian Water
Authority would publish this statement on their website. To my
knowledge all the other water companies are in full compliance with the FOIA
2000. I expect the ICO to issue a heavy fine against the Anglian Water
Authority for their willful breach of Section 77 of the said act. Quite frankly,
I think the conduct of their CEO Peter Simpson is reprehensible.

Dear Ms Denham, Information Commissioner
Please see the following article from the Scottish Information Commissioner's Office who,
it would appear, has her finger on the pulse and is holding Scottish
ministers to account. That cannot be said about the English Information
Commissioner, who appears to have a very cosy little relationship with MPs
and Judges and rogue public authorities
I would imagine something
similar to this will land on your desk sooner rather than later. I do hope you
don't think this letter is too vexatious or mainfestly unreasonable.

Dear Mr Bailey, ICO Solicitor
Please advise me how many
people from the UK ICO attended this convention. According to these press
releases, the FOIA needs strengthening across Europe. I don't subscribe to this
argument; there is nothing wrong with the UK FOIA only the people who are
running it, who are dishonest and willfully blind.

Ben Bradshaw MP for Exeter.
According to the ICO published records for their Decision Notices
(DN) the ICO has completed only 34 DN this month and 35 for last month.
I do not accept such totals warrant the huge staffing Levels
at the ICO.
Moreover and more importantly, their total DN numbers have
had huge discrepancies for the last two weeks.
I call upon my MP to write to the Minister of Culture and
Sport and the Lord Chief Justice protesting on my behalf about the
ICO workload. The average total of Decision Notices for last year was 100 per
month. What is also very alarming is the ICO has no idea how much each individual case costs the public purse.
I believe every FOIA case which
passes through the ICO should be given a cost centre control ref number and
then the ICO would be able to identify total costs of individual cases.
I am also alarmed to learn the
ICO does not operate either ISO 9000 series QA/QC or ISO 1400
Environmental. It would appear the ICO is allocated a lump sum each year
say £15 million pounds to run their organization and there is no fiscal accountability
or ring-fence. The ICO has no QA/QC controls and for the last decade the
ICO officials have been able to claim expenses without receipts. They are
also still non- compliant to the Register of Interest laws.
I am of the opinion the ICO is in need of a good shakedown to improve quality of service
for the general public.

Dear Mr Bailey
Three days ago, I asked you a specific question, how long has
Alex Ganotis worked for the ICO and when did he complete his Register of
You are normally very prompt with your responses, but
this time you have not replied to my direct questions. I understand Mr
Ganotis has worked for both the ICO and Stockport Borough Council since 2008.
I also asked you how long you have known about this.
I also asked you a question about the ICO Register of
Interest for ICO officials.
May I take this opportunity is submitting another FOIA
request to the ICO. i.e How many Compromise Agreements have the ICO
entered into with Ex ICO Officials please?
For your information, action and files
