I recently emailed the British Home Office asking for 10 million pounds in compensation for the traumatic criminality that I have been subjected to by the British Security Services. I narrowly escaped no fewer than 3 abduction attempts in early 2012, an assassination plot shortly after along with having my electronic communications intercepted and monitored as well as 2 years of stalking and harassment.
Quite surprisingly I received a reply from the Home Secretary, Theresa May, who urged me to complain to the Investigatory Powers Tribunal. I wrote back to her expressing my deep reservations about such a course of action, as I had already done this in 2012 and had my complaint dismissed with no right of appeal. Surprisingly again, I received a second email from the Home Office reassuring me that I should go ahead with the complaint. I was naive enough to follow their advice, thinking that perhaps it may be a fruitful venture. What a twat I am.
I received a reply from the IPT on the 24th Dec 2014 saying that they had “dismissed my complaint and claim” and that I had no right of appeal.
Having thought more about it I can’t help wondering what point the IPT has. We are not told who sits on the tribunal, we can not question the tribunal, we can not appeal to the tribunal…who the fuck are these people who sit on the tribunal anyway…and where is their legitimacy and accountability? Answer: they have none.
