Dear Mr Oley,
Thank you for your email to me.
I do not support any violation of GDPR and Data Protection Law.
My words this morning were instead in support the proactive leadership shown by Tom Watson in recent weeks in fighting anti-Jewish racism in the Labour Party. The apathetic response to a growing trend of disgusting anti-Jewish racism in our Party has been nothing short of shameful and I commend his zero-tolerance approach in rooting out all antisemitism from our Party.
Dear Ms Mcdonagh
Thank you for your response.
I need to advise that it does not respond to my questions. Please can you direct yourself to answering my questions as set out.
I do note that you state that you do not accept that the rights of data subjects under DPA98 as amended and GDPR can be interfered with which is helpful. However you then go on to state that you support Tom Watson in his "zero tolerance" approach to matters of what I assume will be complaints to the labour party.
My letter to Mr Watson and yourself highlights that such a "zero tolerance " approach is unlawful. Hence my still unanswered questions to you.
I am also confused by this latter statement. If you yourself do not support the interference of third parties in the data subject rights of individuals subjected to, in this example, complaints then why do you support another individual in so doing?
Can you clarify as your position is or seems to be 'Janus faced' in that you are holding both positions simultaneously when they are irreconcilable.
I stand to be advised on these matters and the awaited response to my questions.
