LAAS ‘troll’ group ‘data breach’: named/shamed NEC member for asking email-list removal | The SKWAWKBOX

If I recall correctly, Labour Against Anti-Semitism is the pet project of one Euan Philipps, who was quick to accuse me of wrong-doing when I was accused of A-S in May last year.

It seems that this organisation is not above wrong-doing of its own, however. Do people like this believe the law doesn’t apply to them – while doing everything they can to smear the innocent?

Here’s Skwawkbox:

When Darren Williams – who does not seem to have ever asked to be included in LAAS mailings – asked to stop receiving them, as he had every right to do, instead of simply complying as data laws require, LAAS tweeted a screengrab of his request with a snide comment:

Data laws do not allow such mailings without the explicit permission of the ‘data subject’ to use his/her email address for that specific purpose.

Under UK data protection laws, data breaches can attract huge fines imposed by the Information Commissioner, as well as incurring police action.

    “It has clearly been shown that there is institutional antisemitism in the party.” It has? When? Where is the evidence? Is that not libel?

    This self styled group are in breach of data protection act (DPA) and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
    I am advising all those who have been targeted by this group to contact the ICO, who have flagged up LAAS on their systems quoting the reference ENQ 738439
    The ICO case officer dealing with this is:

    Ciara Hagan
