Why is Denham complicit in school contamination cover-up?

Ms Elizabeth Denham
Information Commissioner

Dear Madam

The Vale View school in Stockport was built on top of an active landfill site in 2006 which is still gassing to date. There is breaking news from the Buchanan school in Scotland that contaminated drinking water has/will cause cancer in teachers and students because that school was built on top of a landfill Site.

If you check you ICO records you will see that Mrs Sheila Oliver submitted a FOIA request to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) for technical data at the school but the SMBC refused under section 14/1 vexatious and the ICO upheld that vexatious decision.

There is no doubt in my mind the ICO have got blood on their hands from this Stockport Vale View school. Ditto for the 6 Exeter PFI schools. Sheila Oliver is a relentless FOIA Campaigner and the ICO has failed its fiduciary duty of care to assist her with the FOIA.

In your defence these appalling breaches of Section 77 happened before you took up your post. Neverhless, you have acted in a similar cavalier manner. Basically, the ICO is aiding and abetting serious fraud, misfeasance and abuse of power.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

To compound matters further, the ICO Senior Manager Mr Alex Goantis who also held a senior full time Managers Role at the ICO failed to see such problems.
