Guardian misinformation

VexatiousPosted by Sheila Oliver Sun, July 31, 2016 07:11:45

Subject: COMPLAINT AGAINST A GUARDIAN ARTICLE

Dear Sirs

I wish to make a formal complaint against the following Guardian article and in particular against the author of the attached article Mr Tim Turner.

Mr Turner failed to investigate the subject title before he published his article because there is consistent tangible evidence that my original FOIA request was not vexatious.

I am sure the Guardian are conscious of the fact that a FOIA request cannot be refused under section 14/1 vexatious exemption if:

1.There is serious purpose behind the request.

2.The request is made in the Public Interest

3.The request is the first request.

Had Mr Turner checked the facts of this case, he wouldn't have reached his final conclusion, i.e Dransfield FOIA was vexatious.

It would appear to me your Mr Turner has a very cozy relationship with the ICO, to the extent he has ICO blood running through his veins.

May I suggest you withdraw your article under the title of Dransfield is NOT Vexatious and print the facts that the ICO are complicit with HM Judges and Ministry of Justice along with a public apology for damaging my good name.

UK Journalists have a duty of care to check their facts prior to publication and it is consistently apparent your Mr Turner is ignorant of the FOIA 2000 and in particular section 14/1 of the said act.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need further information/clarification. I will gladly give the Guardian an exclusive interview which will reveal the facts, i.e Ministry of Justice complicit with the ICO/HM Judges and rogue public authorities to pervert the Course of Justice.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
