Despatches! Huh! I am curious about the phone call the journalist made to an alleged member of the Jeremy for Labour database. It is highly unlikely that they gave prior consent for someone who is not a Momentum/Jeremey for Leader campaigner to make the call. This is what we experts call a failure to provide adequate technical protection because they didn’t vet their agent or manage the recruitment process or mange the actions of their agent ; also didn’t have an adequate data leakage programme. The actions of the journalist we would call a ‘social engineering confidentiality breach or hack’. If they didn’t get permission & consent to use the call on TV from the data subject, that’s an additional crime.
Data Protection, it’s like single market rules, it gets everywhere. Of course it could have been staged.
