Dodgy Stockport Council put the names, addresses and signatures of huge numbers of council taxpayers up on the Council website. At a full council meeting on a Thursday evening this was drawn to the attention of the Leader, all the Executive Councillors, all the senior council officers present, and all the other councillors. No action was taken to remove this damaging information until the following Monday when those affected complained to the police and the Information Commissioner.

Over that weekend Mr Parnell was arrested three times for trying to get his name, address and signature (and mine) down from the Council website (please see the video link below)

You can see from the Word document above from Stockport Council’s Freedom of Information Officer that they didn’t even hold any sort of meeting to discuss this serious breach of the Data Protection Act.

This is a truly horrendous council and at that time the Monitoring Officer was the dreadful Barry Khan.
