Dodgy LibDems Toxic School


Andrew Webb Director of Children's Services at Stockport Council and now involved with Devo Manc is a corrupt liar.

84 hours to remove all the secrets pertaining to one new primary school to be situated on top of a still gassing, brown asbestos-riddled, former toxic waste dump?

Andrew Webb should be locked up.

After I had shown up the LibDems in Parliament when they pretended to respect FOI, they sent me an email within hours allowing me to see the requested documents

After I showed up the dodgy LibDems in Parliament over their claims to respect FOI, within hours they let me see the documents originally refused to me by Andrew Webb who tried to claim there were so many secrets in the building of a new primary school that it would take a council officer 84 hours to "redact" them.  That man is a liar.

Gosh, thanks for that. You seem to have a helpful generic message at the end of your emails now. I wonder if our complaints to the Information Commission have borne fruit? May I see any communication between the Information Commission and Stockport Council regarding the Council's handling of FOI issues.
Kind regards
Sheila

Subject: Monitoring phones and emails
Sir
I note from the national press that some Council's are tapping people's phones and emails in some instances. Are any individual's emails or phones being monitored by Stockport Council?
Lots of love
Sheila





If you ask for a document and the answer comes back it doesn't exist it is your
responsibility to prove it does and you have to use your legal rights within 3 months.
Those rights are of asking for an Internal Review followed by submission to the
Info Com and you must start the process within 3 months of the initial request !!!
