Emails between Mayor, dept mayors and SARI

We're waiting for Richard Carey to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Bristol City Council,

Please forward me all public emails for 2018 between Mayor Marvin Rees, Deputy Mayors Asher Craig and Craig Cheney and SARI.

The search, download and sending of these messages should not take more than 18hrs for your IT team. I have checked this with a friendly software developer and will be using that evidence against you if you refuse.

My previous email was denied under the assumption it was vexatious. Due to me investigating undemocratic links between BCC and SARI I feel this adds to my basis for requesting these emails. If my request was vexatious why would I specifically target SARI as being used as BCC's attack dog?

Yes the results of this information being made public may be disruptive and damaging for the council, in that regard:

1 all comms from senior staff made in a public capacity must be transparent
2 if the senior staff have been acting in a way that brings BCC into disrepute the release of that information cannot be held back due to this fact. It is not my fault the information I am asking for would damage the council's reputation

Yours faithfully,

Richard Carey

Dear Bristol City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Bristol City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Emails between Mayor, dept mayors and SARI'.

Please redefine this to 'emails about richard carey' and 'emails about the bearpit'. This will mean the request is not broad, is not vexatious or for any malicious reasons and will be in the public interest to find out what has been said on these two subjects. Thank you for letting on that there are 750 emails between the two entities and putting me on the trail..

Dear "Customer Relations Team" <[email address]>,

I am happy to receive these public emails with any identifiable information removed, please provide these asap.

Vexatious: I am examining link between SARI and the mayor's office without any offense intended or given.

Fishing: this is a specific evaluation of how the mayor and SARI deal with casework, I'm not asking for all the mayor's emails acting in his leadership capacity but rather a small select target.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Carey

Case CRN00210673 

Dear Mr Carey,

 

Thank you for your email dated 2 March.

 

Your original request was for "emails about richard carey" and
"emails about the bearpit" between the Mayor, Deputy Mayors and SARI
during 2018. Our response dated 30/01/19 confirmed that we do not
hold any emails related to the Bearpit. We also stated that we would
neither confirm nor deny if we hold emails about you via
[1]www.whatdotheyknow.com.

This should not be taken as conclusive evidence that the information
you requested exists or does not exist. As your request relates to
your personal data, we are not able to discuss this further with you
via this website. We advised that you should make a subject access
request from a personal email account.

 

If you would like an internal review of our original response, please
could you let us know.

Yours sincerely

Dear Bristol City Council,

It is my right to see whether the issues publicly discussed are along the correct lines, and not simply Marvin Rees using SARI as a personal attack vehicle. What specifics are you after to satisfy my request? An SAR is already in the works for myself but I should be given access to the rest of the emails as a public servant emailing on public business.

To be clear I am not asking for any personal email or personal electronic device comms re SARI only the publicly funded, stored or communicated and therefore right to public access emails.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Carey

"Customer Relations Team" <complaints.feedback@bristol.gov.uk>, Bristol City Council

Dear Mr Carey,

 

Thank you for your email dated 7 March.

 

Please could you clarify if you are asking for an internal review of
our response to your original request dated 13 December 2018 (our ref
CRN00203075). We responded to this request on 22 January 2019 and
received a narrower request from you on 27 January, which we treated
as a new request (our ref CRN00210673) and responded on 7 February.

 

Your email seems to be asking us to reconsider your request for "all
public emails for 2018 between Mayor Marvin Rees, Deputy Mayors Asher
Craig and Craig Cheney and SARI" and therefore asking us to conduct
an internal review of our decision to refuse your broad request in
our response dated 22 January 2019. Please could you clarify or
confirm.

 

Kind regards,

Dear "Customer Relations Team" <[email address]>,

As previously stated SARI has been evidenced to be operating closely with the Mayor, Del Brown and other POC with dubious intentions as a political attack vehicle rather than an anti racist watchdog.

Mayor Marvin Rees has requested SARI investigate the organisation Bearpit Defence Force

Del Brown has used SARI to frighten ACORN away from his slum landlord dealings at liv 2 let

I am looking to examine the Mayors PUBLIC relations with SARI and see how my tax payments are being used. It is my right to have a thesis and request information to prove or disprove my thesis, fishing would be a request without a thesis, and vexatious requests would be those without any thesis or a thesis designed to annoy or distress.

You have also previously requested I send an SAR request using my right to privacy as an obstacle. I would like your handling of this matter reviewed and an explanation of what the Mayor's cabinet's have been hiding in PUBLIC communications with SARI and why you would not like this PUBLIC information to become PUBLIC

Yours sincerely,

Dear "Customer Relations Team" <[email address]>,

Please provide all emails from only Marvin Rees to SARI, I will create seperate requests for Asher Craig etc, unless you are willing to create seperate requests for me now.

I am surprised Asher Craig's comment of 'i'm not giving him anything' has not been dealt with in your internal review, could you explain why? This kind of absolute dismissal of a citizen's right to public information should be explained in full.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Carey

"Customer Relations Team" <complaints.feedback@bristol.gov.uk>, Bristol City Council

Dear Mr Carey,

 

Thank you for your further email dated 6 April requesting copies of
emails between the Mayor and SARI.

 

We conducted an internal review of our response related to your
request for emails between the Mayor, Deputy Mayors and SARI and
upheld our decision to refuse access to the information because we
consider that the exemption at Section 14 of the Freedom of
Information Act for vexatious requests applies. Please see our email
dated 29 March, our ref CRN00217135. If you are unhappy with that
decision, you have a right to complain to the Information
Commissioner’s Office, see below.

 

We consider that your new request asks for similar information. We
are therefore also refusing this request under Section 14 of the FOI
Act. Please be advised that, based on guidance from the Information
Commissioner’s Office, we will not send a written refusal in response
to any further repeated requests. 

 

If you’re not satisfied with our response, or if you want to appeal
against any exemptions you can complain to the Information
Commissioner via their website: [1]www.ico.org.uk or in writing to:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office

Welcome to the council's coronavirus information and advice newsletter
 

Hello resident,

As part of our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we will put out
regular newsletters to help everyone in Bristol stay safe, know what is
happening, and find out how they can get help if they need it.

We will continue to support our citizens in the best way we can, however there
will be some service changes which we will share with you. The latest updates
are available below and on our dedicated [2]website, [3]Twitter and [4]Facebook
pages. If you can’t find the answers you need please email us at
[5][email address].

We are living through one of the biggest challenges that this country has faced
in decades, but our city is well-equipped to work through this. More than ever,
it’s important that we support each other, share information and follow the
government guidelines. If we all do this we can protect our families and the
most vulnerable in our communities.

Stay safe. We are Bristol.

Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol

Latest Government information and what we must do

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of
the infection.

That is why the government introduced three new measures on Monday 23 March:

1.    Requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes

2.    Closing non-essential shops and community spaces

3.    Stopping all gatherings of more than two people in public.
 

When can you go out? 

The government has said that you should only leave the house for one of four
reasons:

* shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be
as infrequent as possible
* one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or
with people you live with
* any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
* travelling to and from work, but only where you cannot work from home. 

These four reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should
minimise the time you spend outside of the home and make sure you are two metres
apart from anyone you don't live with. Wash your hands thoroughly before leaving
the house, and when you return.
 

Information for parents who do not live in the same house

The government has clarified that where parents do not live in the same
household, children under 18 can move between their parents’ homes. 

New WhatsApp information service

This free Government service provides trustworthy information and advice about
coronavirus. Simply add 07860 064422 in your phone contacts then send the word
‘hi’ in a WhatsApp message to get started.

If you have symptoms

Please stay at home for seven days if you have either:

* a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
* a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly.

 
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111
to tell them you are staying at home.
 
If you live with other people, you should all stay at home for 14 days from the
day the first person got symptoms.
 
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

* you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
* your condition gets worse
* your symptoms do not get better after seven days.

Local services

You might already be aware of some of the changes to the council services. We
have summarised the latest changes below:
 

* [6]Waste services – garden waste and bulky waste collections have been
suspended and household waste recycling centres are closed. Please continue
to show your support for our crews by sorting your recycling properly,
double-bagging coronavirus-related waste and keeping it with you for 72
hours before putting out for collection to reduce harmful bacteria.
* [7]School closures – all schools are closed until further notice, except for
children of key workers and vulnerable children.
* [8]Citizen service point – some of our non-essential face-to-face services
have been suspended or moved to telephone appointments.
* [9]Council tenants – we are providing essential services only to make sure
that people's urgent needs are met.
* Events – all [10]public events have been cancelled until at least the end of
July, including Bristol Harbour Festival.
* [11]Libraries – will stay closed until 1 May 2020. During this time, we are
not able to accept returned books. Please do not leave them on the doorstep
as they could be stolen or damaged with no-one there to collect them.
* [12]Museums – will stay closed until 1 May 2020. All events are cancelled
until 31 May 2020. The enquiries service at Bristol Archives will continue
during this time.
* [13]Register office – you can't register a birth at the moment and we are
only registering deaths and still births by telephone. Also, it's not
possible to give notice for a marriage or civil partnership and there are no
marriage or civil partnership ceremonies taking place.
* [14]Funeral services – we are restricting funeral attendance to a maximum of
ten mourners of immediate family or very close friends only and have
postponed scattering and burial of ashes.
* [15]Leisure centres – will be closed until further notice.
* [16]Parks – facilities such as toilets and cafes and some park services have
been closed or suspended until further notice.
* St Nicholas Markets – will be closed until further notice.
* [17]Free parking for NHS staff and care workers – if you work for the NHS or
as a care worker, you can park for free in all [18]council owned car parks,
on street pay and display bays and [19]residents' parking zones, including
shared use bays. 

How to get help

For the past few days we have been working with central Government to plan
support for people who need to shield. These are people that have been told by
the government they are at risk of getting seriously unwell if they get
coronavirus. The government has sent them a letter telling them to stay at home
for 12 weeks.

If you have received the letter, you need to sign up on the [20]government
website or by calling 0800 0288327 to get help. We have contacted everyone who
has registered for support so far and offered help to provide food and medicine.

If you have registered but not received a call and need emergency food, please
email: [21][email address] marking the subject heading as URGENT, so
we can contact you directly and assess your needs.

The We Are Bristol support phone number – 0117 352 3011 – went live today
(Tuesday 31 March) and will offer support to residents across the city.

Call handlers will be available initially during office hours (8.30am-5pm,
Monday to Friday) to provide support for people with a wide range of needs,
including obtaining food supplies, other essential items and medication. They
can also help arrange follow-up support with different organisations. 

Where to find advice and guidance

There is a lot of misinformation being shared about the coronavirus,
particularly on social media. Please always use trusted sources such as the
[22]government, [23]NHS, [24]Public Health [25]England and our own [26]council
website.

If you can’t find an answer, email us at [27][email address]

Unfortunately, there are people who are using this crisis to personally benefit
through scams and by preying on vulnerable people. Where possible, get support
from trusted friends and family. Never give money or your bank card to someone
you don’t know – if you need someone to do your shopping for you, arrange a bank
transfer or use a service like Paypal instead.  

Data Protection and receiving emails from us

As this is a national emergency, it is in the public interest for us to contact
as many people, in as many different ways as possible, to make sure everyone
knows what help, advice and services are available. We will be processing your
data for reasons of substantial public health.

To be able to send this newsletter to you, we have used information that we hold
normally used for other purposes. This is allowed at this time due to the
current national health situation. [28]More details can be found on the ICO
website here. 

You can [29]view the council’s full privacy statement for more information on
how we manage your data.
