In Campaign in a Legal Pickle

in campaign site

The In Campaign are advertising for a Director of Compliance to help them fulfil their regulatory and legal obligations. By the looks of things whoever takes on the job will have their work cut out.

A quick browse through their new website reveals that they are collecting internet cookies but are not declaring that they are doing so. In breach of EU regulations.

They don’t disclose their registered company name anywhere on the site. A criminal offence.

And they don’t display a privacy policy, despite collecting names and addresses. A breach of the Information Commissioner’s Office’s guidelines.

It also appears that they haven’t registered a data controller with the Information commissioner. Another criminal offence. 

Perhaps they should have hired that compliance director before they launched?

Cooper’s Cross-Party Migrant Message to MPs: “Take a Selfie”

Yvette Cooper has responded to Andy Burnham weaponising the refugee crisis by writing to every single MP, telling them the situation “transcends party politics and the Labour Party leadership election”. See what she did there…

Yvette’s bold cross-party pitch?

“We are writing to you now to encourage you to… Take a selfie with a #refugeeswelcome banner and put it on Twitter and Facebook, encouraging others to do the same.”

Such leadership.

Cooper and Burnham might be trying to make a stand on migrants now, but they weren’t always so noble. The Telegraph points out the pair’s voting record on asylum issues:

Only Jezza’s voting record has been consistently migrant-friendly…

Where’s Cleggy?

Not only is Nick Clegg missing from Tim Farron’s star-studded top team, the LibDems have forgotten to include their former leader on the list of current MPs on their website:

There are only 8 of ’em, you’d have thought they could remember them all…

Labour Leadership Update

Some of the most comprehensive analysis of the Labour leadership contest has come from Tumblr. Here is the latest offering:

LibDem Leader Sorry Over Tweet Comparing Gay People to Frogs

An unfortunate post from Tim Farron’s account last night, just days after he faced down the Twitter lynch mob over his views on homosexuality:

Alas, he says he was ‘hacked’:

Adding “just bizarre. Someone sent just a single tweet”. Bizarre, indeed…

50 Shades of Burnham

Guido has spent the afternoon in the strange vortex that is the Andy Burnham online fandom. And it was really, really weird.

Guido hears that Zac has managed to secure the services of Nick de Bois, who is apparently going to chair and run Zac’s selection campaign. Lynton Crosby’s CTF Partners are on hand to offer Zac advice on his campaign.

Labour Admit They Can’t Stop Tories Voting For Corbyn

maxresdefault

Last week Labour sought to nip the #ToriesForCorbyn campaign in the bud by insisting everyone voting must “support the aims and values of the Labour Party and if they don’t then they won’t be allowed to take part”.

Since then, the only change made to the process has been to ask participants to agree to this statement:

“I support the aims and values of the Labour Party, and I am not a supporter of any organisation opposed to it.”

Yet Labour NEC veteran Ann Black last night admitted that the new system would not stop Tory entryists:

“Some members are concerned about registered supporters and whether our political enemies can subvert the process… Of course people can always lie”

The Corbyn campaign is now seeking to allay concerns:

“much has been made of the idea that Tories are joining the party to vote for this or that candidate.
