Does Richard Bailey of the ICO understand the Freedom of Information Act at all?

Dear Mr Bailey

You assume correctly Mr Bailey and yes indeed, para 6 of your attached Final Decision Notice dated 26th Oct 2015 does indeed make ref to a review request but that still does not answer my question, How I am expected to make a review request PRIOR to the Final Notice,i e 26th October 2015?

As you can clearly see from your attached Final Decision Notice the date is 26th Oct 2015, so how the hell can I make a review request in April 2015?

I consider this to be part of your wider conspiracy to breach the FOIA 2000 via obfuscations and willfully ambiguous tactics by your good self. On page 2 of your decision notice it clearly shows the 7 FOIA requests between 20th Mar 15 and 17th April 2015; hence you are clearly in breach of the FOIA 2000 time constraints.

Six of 7 requests are brand new requests and are no way connected to my original GIA/3037/2011 Dransfield v ICO, which is currently before the Supreme Court. I agree that the sixth request ref IRQ0577046 is remotely connected to my original case.

It is clearly obvious to any fair-minded person that Dransfield the person is being treated as vexatious not his requests, and the attached final decision notice is further tangible evidence that the ICO is attempting to gag Joe Public and are clearly acting as a government gatekeeper.

I now wish to elevate my complaint against your direct misconduct in the handling of of my attached case.....

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

Dear Mr Dransfield,

I assume that you are referring to an internal review of an initial refusal (though this is not actually a requirement of the legislation). From reading the decision notice, it would appear that, in response to the initial refusal you had requested an internal review on 22 April 2015 – see para 6.

Yours Sincerely,

Mr Richard Bailey

Dear Mr Bailey

You surprise me at your ignorance of the FOIA 2000. I must request a review before I can appeal to the FTT or have you moved the goal posts once again.

I do wish to challenge your decision in FS 59582996 dated 26th Oct and in the first instance please review your decision in line with the FOIA 2000.

For your information action and files

Yours etc

Information Commissioner

Dear Sirs

Under protection of the FOIA 2000, please review your attached decision notice. I make this review request in the interest of transparency, security and accountability of the FOIA 2000 and the ICO Commissioner's bad faith.

In your decision notice, you claim my request was NOT new and you also claim I am guilty of intransigence and unreasonable persistence, which I refute in the strongest manner and counter claim the same irregularity by the ICO.

For your information,action and files

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
