Ed Davey Breaches Lib Dem Leadership Contest Rules mdi-fullscreen
After Layla Moran’s GDPR problems yesterday, Ed Davey has one-upped his opponent by formally breaching party election rules. The LibDem Returning Officer has released a statement saying Sir Ed has been using data gathered during his unsuccessful 2019 leadership campaign in this year’s one. Naughty naughty…
“A complaint has been made by an individual about Ed Davey’s 2020 campaign’s use of data gathered in his 2019 leadership campaign for direct marketing.

The party has taken legal advice and received representations from the campaign. 

The party’s advice concludes that a technical breach has occurred in relation to specific consents. We have advised the campaign of the issues, and have required the campaign to cease using the affected data now and to gain new consents before using it again.

A technical breach perhaps, but seeing as Davey has been particularly militant about data protection in the past, this is not a good look.
