DP Commissioner rejects claims by Page & West

The Data Protection Commissioner has rejected claims of abuse of data by both Robin Page and John West.

The Commissioner said in Mr Pages case that there was 'no case to answer' and that 'UKIP had complied in every respect with the (Data Protection) Act'.

In Mr Wests case, the Commissioner said that while the posting of the video of Mr West making a fool of himself on You-Tube was regrettable, there would be no further action.

The decision was made several days ago. How strange that neither Mr Page nor Mr West, who both made much of having made the complaint, have publicised their obvious relief that their personal data was not misused by UKIP and that their complaints have been proven groundless.

Can we now look forward to Mr Lance Watkins publicising this clearing of UKIP on his blog.

Mr Lance Watkins launches low key BNP blog

The Common Man has been delayed in Strasbourg and so once again it is Bob Pacific here filling in until normal service is resumed.

Mr Lance Watkins has clearly taken the Common Mans comments to heart (21 March) as just days after it was noted that Mr Lance Watkins had blogs which smeared every party and anti-EU group apart from the BNP, he launched his BNP blog (26 March). So far it has a single post which consists of a link to Searchlight. Such damning criticism!

It must be difficult to be in his position, making lukewarm criticisms of the BNP while praising them as 'just another patriotic party' (his words), when in his heart of hearts its the BNP he supports. Theres plenty of evidence in this blog of his public anti-semitism and hatred of foreigners plus his homophobia, plus his self-acknowledged friendship with Nick Griffin.

What is the betting that within a few days of this, he'll be adding information to his BNP blog, but stopping well short of anything near the bile he pours on moderate eurosceptics? They say you know a man by his friends and a quick look at the people Mr Lance Watkins praises is enough. Mr Abbott, BNP donor. Ms Holdsworth-Voelcker, anti-semite. Mr Haslam, BNP party organiser. Mr Mottram, BNP emissary. No wonder he hates Del Young!
