Breaching the Data Protection Act.

As a Council resident,I have been the victim of the Breaching of the Data Protection Act by a Council Worker in October 2009.

I complained to the Council and a process of enquiry was apparently gone through,but as this was all determined by the Council involved I lost of course even though there was a witness who heard every word this person stated and wrote to the Council confirming it.

This was thrown out because the "witness" made himself invisible to the worker and myself.Even in a Court of Law this is Fact,that a witness doesn't have to be visible to anyone to confirm what he had heard,so what is the difference?

8 Months on and have just discovered that the Council worker has been Promoted,while I am still suffering from this personal insult.

I will fight on of course,but if a Government Body has a Complaint against it,then investigations should be carried out by a Neutral Party/Parties and not an internal investigation!

Yes,I went to the Ombudsman and that was a complete waste of time because all she read was what the Council had written,and came back as "Inconclusive"!

Data Protection means exactly what it say's,and yet a Deputy Area Manager gets off scott free and gets a Promotion for her trouble.

As pensioners,we cannot afford to get this to Court,so maybe you should amend the DPA to protect the innocents who have worked all their lives.

According to the Council,there is NO DATA TRAIL with Saffron,so time to make sure that there is a Data Trail in the very near future.

After all,anyone can get access to anyone's records which are Private and Confidential apparently.

Why is this idea important?

Repeal Ombudsman Laws/ Rules

I would like to see the repeal of the law and or rules, that stop a judicial review having full powers to oversee and reverse any of the various Ombudsman's decisions.

Widely seen as biased and untrustworthy, Most people who have had to deal with any Ombudsman department would like the total power held over them by the Ombudsman and be association, the power of big business to act as they please, to be moderated and overseen by Judicial review or by going through some other suitable route.

The way the present Laws, rules and process moves, there is no protection for the public from even the most obviously ridiculous one sided rulings the ombudsman's bodies make.

So I, and a huge body of the British public urge a reform over the Laws and rules governing the way the Ombudsman and courts interact with the pubic once a complaint about a business, council, or utility service, has been made.

REGULATION OF PUBLIC OMBUDSMAN SERVICES

Review the management systems in place to ensure Ombudsman, LGO and PHSO are accountable for their conduct.  The current option is to pay for a Judicial review if you do not agree their decision, even if their files is missing submitted evidence or the assessor made errors.  Conduct can only be reported to the Select Committee of the Commons.

Ensure timescales are used to respondent replies.

Impose accountability for decisions by providing full information to complainants on the basis for decisions and allow appeal, not as at present a review ( of a flawed file) upon which a decision has been made.

Ensure LGO and PHSO adhere to FOI legislation – they should be exemplars!

Abolish The Local Government Ombudsman

The Local Government Ombudsman are the people you turn to for help when you cannot get redress from City Councils but unbeknown to you they  work in collusion with them,they will employ diversionary and delaying tactics until you are out of a time limit imposed by themselves so you cannot continue to get redress, they then hastily destroy all documents to your case and object to you taking your case to a proper Court of Law.

Removal of Biased Ombudsmen system of complaints investigation

The ombudsman system which has proved so biased in the past both through its metod of implimentation and the legislation behind it has left many with the justified opinion that The complaints system is set up to only allow the most tenatious to sort out problems caused by rouge officials – the system only really works if lawysers are involved and it failes to look at the mortar between the bricks – it is so compartmentalised it simply cannot work in these multidisciplinery events where social workers work with both police and health services meaning if something does go wrong each blames the other and the victims problems caused by these events are not solved they are simply next weeks next months next years headlines with a change of victims names.

The system should be replaced with local problem solvers who have the right to ensure the victim is not airbrushed off the problems  listing into the either. Problems solved should result in all the same problems solved not problem solved filed and ignored ready for the next victim to go through the same process again to find the same fault.

 

The government complaints system should be people based not Department based and it should not be biased against the general public by design and default.
