Re: Breach of data protection

I doubt you actually believe your argument, but just in case: sending mail to a mailing list that you are a member of is not a data protection matter. It may well be inappropriate, uncouth, or self-defeating but you aren't disclosing anything not already known to the recipients, and the ICO does not function as De Brett's Court of Etiquette.

The amount of schoolyard ranting from both sides of the referendum makes it quite clear how this sorry impasse has been reached: systematic misrepresentation, vilification and bare-faced lies. Is it possible for the whole damn nation to be sat on the naughty step for a week or two for some calm deep breathing?
