The alleged “Vexatious” Exemptions now propping up the broken Freedom of Information Act 2000. A Brief History

Judge O’Conner, President of the Upper Tribunal

Unlawful Decision by Upper Tribunal Judge Nicholas Wikeley


Dear Sir,


The case in which I wish to draw your attention is GIA /3037/2013 which is now used as the Court Precedent  for all vexatious cases.

Thousands of Vexatious Cases are now archived in HMCTS and the ICO. My original FOIA request was deemed to be vexatious by the PA Devon County Council  DCC) because they claimed the subject of my FOIA request i.e. Lightning Protection Systems (LPS) on the Exeter Chiefs’ Rugby Bridge (ECRB) had been provisioned with state of the art LPS. Such statement could not be further from the truth.

Judge Wikely upheld the DCC Vexatious but obviously did not conduct any technical inquiry

I can now prove the ECRB was devoid of any LPS at the time of Hearing at the UT and Court of Appeal (EWCA 454 2015). Since 2013 the ICO have relied upon the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent, I have now been banned from using the FOIA and I am the Court Precedent for all Vexatious Cases.

It is consistently obvious the Judge Wikely/ICO/Court of Appeal and other rogue PA are acting in concert to obstruct the FOI and to pervert the Court of Justice, which is a breach of section 77 of the said Act. I fully appreciate the time limits (2013) prevent you investigating the egregious conduct by Judge Wikeley inter alia, however, the Upper Tribunal are STILL using the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent,hence, it is fairly obvious the UT and others are turning a blind eye to the Unlawful use of the Dransfield Vexatious Hogwash.

There is now PRIMA FACIE evidence available at my blog (ALAN DRANSFIELD BLOG) i.e. the As Built Health and Safety Files for the ECRB.

Notwithstanding the veracity of my allegation, the gravity of my claims behooves your office to carry out a full inquiry into the Conduct of Judge Wikeley. GIA/3037 is unfit for purpose, as is Judge Wikely.

Suggestions and recommendation:

1. Judge Wikeley should be put on gardening leave subject to investigation

2. Cease and desist from using the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent.

3. Each time the UT or ICO use the Dransfield Vexatious they deny the FOIA requester civil, legal and human rights.

With thanks
Yours sincerely
Alan M Dransfield
