    • Several organisations are concerned about exploding messages and lack of transparency. I suspect it hasn't been by accident, this isn't how government business should be done. If the people involved were in the private sector, they'd likely be in trouble.   I've also read that when news of Sue Gray's enquiry came out, there was an order from on high to delete anything to do with parties from mobile phones. You'd hope the Met would be looking at that, also that they can retrieve deleted messages from the server or wherever.
    • In parallel, there needs to be a proper accounting for all the 'government business' carried out on these private phones, and all parties (sic) involved banned from public office, all agreements vetted by cross party commissions, and all funds involved clawed back immediately and held until the results of the commissions clear them .. or not, with all legitimate interactions properly logged into government systems.   In parallel with that there needs to be further investigation into any criminality occurring via those mechanisms, with proper justification for actions checked - not simple lack of evidence for criminality as an unlawful/unofficial mechanism was used and destroyed   Then perverting the course of justice and some sort of abuse of position charges for all as a minimum.   Johnsons 'guvernment running via 'dark web' and related mechanisms used by perverts and criminals to evade justice has to be stopped and punished
    • Thank you again, Bazza. That was the problem I was having yesterday,  no figures beyond July last year. I thought there might be some more recent ones that I'd missed.   Here's more on the ONS statement, from Full Fact.   Dan Wootton and David Davis make incorrect claims about Covid-19 deaths - Full Fact FULLFACT.ORG Data from the ONS shows that to the end of September 2021, 17,371 people died in England and Wales of Covid and had no pre-existing conditions.  
    • That still leaves the parties the Met isn't investigating though and the drinking culture in no10 though, doesn't it?   If they're not careful though, there will be accusations of no10 kicking the can down the road and possibly trying to influence the investigations.
    • Hi there. an update for you   1) independent surveyor report was sent to builder on 13 Dec.   2) builder only responded yesterday. They dispute the majority of the issues identified. Claiming for example: that we have influenced the expert witness surveyor, that we have caused some of the issues by undoing work, that that the surveyor is wrong,    3) through trading standards we gave them the month of nov to finish plus put things (known) right, at no point did they say a month was unreasonable, they were onsite for less than 10 days of nov,  early nov building control initially visited and highlighted issues, they claim building control have now signed off their work at the end of nov   4) building control visited last week at my request, there are still issues with their work, it has not been signed off and never was at the end of nov    4) builder now says there they didn’t have time to put known things right in nov (they are always contradicting themselves) and that they should be allowed to return to site  to fix these ‘minor snags’, the majority are not minor snags, they are building regulation contraventions    5) we have quotes from 3rd parties to do the work. We do not want the original builders back because:    a)quality of their workmanship has been called into question by ourselves, building control and a 3rd party surveyor    b) lack of trust in what they tell us - for example they’ve deviated from the plan, used different materials, refused to fix items saying nothing wrong and it’s how they always do it, refused to give deadlines, knowingly cut corners, have said work is signed off when it isn’t etc    c) their behaviour:  smoking weed on site, urinating next to my garden office, swearing, smoking, leaving the house with doors wide open and unlocked, leaving site unsafe with scaffold boards & materials lying across/over paths at end of day/week, all these things were raised with them verbally & in emails    d) they repeatedly said they hate working for us, they can’t wait to leave, none of them enjoy coming here etc   so, my question is.. do we have to allow them to return or can we say that we want a refund or for them to cover 3rd party costs?    im feeling that they have had enough opportunities to do the right thing and put things right, I’m also feeling that we aren’t being unreasonable by not wanting them back..   they say they can’t understand why we are rushing to get 3rd parties to finish the job and that the job is ‘live ‘ with them.   my feeling is that this job should have been finished in July (at no point have they provided a revised completion date despite us asking numerous times), they were given nov to finish & go, we’ve not heard from them over past 2 months so how could it still be live, and that we’ve spent 2 cold months living in a half finished house which doesn’t have heating completed, is damp & draughty, Ofcourse we want to get it finished asap! Any input would be appreciated, thank you.

Ask the DPA, they obviously feel that a breach on the part of the solicitor has been committed, unlike me and you they deal with such matters on a regular basis.

 

I am more than willing to PM your the relevent reference number if you feel obliged to challenge.

 

Do you want it all do you want to carry on pretending because it really makes no odds to me.

 

Ask the Data Protection Act?!

 

I don't want your reference number as it is meaningless.

 

I would like to know how the solicitors could failed to provide a document that you claim never existed in the first place. They can't disclosure something that has never existed so it's just bizarre.

I assume this is a reference to the Office of the Information Commissioner? I would be genuinely surprised if they told you that there has "obviously" been a breach of the DPA by the solicitor. Can you be clear exactly what they've written to you?

 

But I'm not sure where this takes you anyway. Even if the ICO concluded that there had been a mishandling of your personal data, I cannot see it having any material impact on the substance of your claim. And - to repeat myself from your other abandoned thread - unless you've submitted your appeal, then all this is just bizarre mutual baiting. What is it that you actually need help with?

Well if the document never existed how on earth could i prove that without obtaining the client file that would contain the document and if there was no such document the allegation would then be factual.

 

I have to prove there was no contract and to be able to do this i would need to have site of the file which as you know the solicitor and his solicitor/barrister are refusing to disclose.

 

What is bizarre and what really points to the fact that there was no legitimate contract in place could and will be drawn from the very fact that the solicitor knows that providing the file will show there was no contract because the file will be minus the documentation as to establish this significant point.

 

On the other hand i suppose the solicitor could own up and say the file does not would not and never has had the documents that would prove that he was working under a legitimate contract but he wont do that now will he.

If you submit a complaint to the SRA, they should arrange for an independent case handler to get hold of the files and investigate it properly. Someone i know made a complaint and they were quite surprised that the SRA were so thorough, as well as keeping them informed of progress.

We could do with some help from you.

The SRA will act if they feel they need to investigate if there has been a breach of the SRA's Principles.

OP declined to go to the Legal Ombudsman despite being advised it would be the best way forward. It would have been best as the LO's remit is wider (they can deal with 'poor service', the SRA can't), and if the LO believes there has been a breach of the SRA's principles, they'll pass it to the SRA.

 

However (and it is a common theme : OP has missed a number of 'deadlines'), is the OP now out of time for involving the LO?

I have contacted the Council head of legal services who dealt with a claim that i had against them and they say that they are satisfied with the legal bill that my solicitor has incurred and subsequently paid.

 

They have referred to a letter that shows justification in the payment but are not prepared to show me the letter or the legal bill that shows how those costs were incurred.

 

Can i request this information or would this be outside the scope as to right to data under DPA.

 

Any help would be appreciated. thanks Callum

Have just been giving judgment in respect of a litigation that i had against a previous solicitor who breached the Data Protection Act, and still continues to breach the Act which is stopping me from relying on the data that would show that he has committed a number of breaches which would include concealing evidence relevant to a case.

 

Further the Information Commissionaire Office have now also advised me that the solicitor has ignored their request for this information and the 28 day period for the solicitor to give his reasons has now expired.

 

But for this information being disclosed this is allowing the solicitor to avoid the proof that would demonstrate that he has breached a number rules and Acts.

 

He seems to be hiding this evidence or no evidence to suggest a contract was in place can be provided, the latter being the more likely.

The Information Commissionaires Office and after investigating have decided that a previous firm of solicitors have breached the Data Protection Act 1998, by failing and when requested to provide data that would demonstrate funding and a legitimate contract were in place when it has been alleged that they were in a position to (a) legally represent, (b) and profit from the misrepresentation.

 

The OCI have now instructed the firm to provide all the needed data within seven days.

 

What are the consequences if any if the firm continues to ignore and provide this information?

I have been giving summary judgement which the solicitor is appealing against on the claim that the solicitor breached DPA.

 

The other side are claiming the issue with any breach of DPA has been previously dealt with under the negligence claim which was not an issue nor was it mentioned in those proceedings.

 

What, if any weight does the reason that the OCI have adjudged my rights under the DPA have been breached will the Court consider?

Did the OP ever provide the evidence of THEIR appeal which was a requirement set by the site team for the "solicitor / negligence" thread to be re-opened?

 

Surely either the threads should be merged and (both) not open, or if it really is a new thread they shouldn't be merged so only the new thread (dealing with a new matter) is open?

Negligence and breaching the DPA completely different.

 

Why are you linking the two at this point?

And to remove any doubt the OP was not in a position "TO PROVIDE" their evidence because the solicitor who had acted negligently was, is and still wants to breach DPA.

 

That said, any giving the stance taking by the OCI, he has now lost that right as it would now appear.
