Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?

Thank you for this clear and evidenced post. Your comment on "floundering knee-jerk politics" is well made. Everyone suffers as a result.... Read More

Is the ICO fit for purpose?

I couldn't agree more with your last paragraph Peter. It may be a 'different rant' but it is a very pertinent one. We are indeed subjects not citizens. And these medieval, feudal relations characterise much of the interaction between government bodies and the individual in this country - as manifest in the Local Council actions outlined by you and by Larry....

I agree with you about incompetence Luke, but it is more disturbing than that. The deeper you go the more you realise that all these bodies back each other up against complainants i.e. the individual citizen. Until you've been there you don't understand what is going on, whether complaints involve the NHS, Government Departments, Ombudsmen or other public bodies. The dark side of this country I'm afraid.

Is the ICO fit for purpose?

We've had dealings with the ICO over a long period of time with a complex complaint involving a number of public bodies. These dealings led us to an expensive and fruitless attempt to secure a Judicial Review against the ICO. The use by the ICO of Section 50(2) of the Freedom of Information Act, by which a complainant can have their case binned without explanation and without any right of appeal or recourse, tells you a great deal about the ICO - and it's not pretty. It's not until you plumb the depths at considerable cost that you realise there is actually nothing you can do and nowhere you can go. Apologies for the bleakness of this message. All good wishes to Property118 members for the year ahead. You're doing a great job - thank you.... Read More
