Dear Mr Whittingham,
Just to remind you that legally you have only a few days left to answer my previous letters to you. In the issue of my summary dismissal, you are the Data Protection Officer and you have a legal responsibility to answer all my queries and cannot duck your responsbility by hiding behind others.
I enclose a copy of all the previous correspondence I have sent to you and trust that you realise that the time limit for replying and remedying the wrong done to me is almost an an end.
[Genuine extract from Helen's autobiography:]"Most sex offenders are manipulative and Dale was no exception, but as a woman I felt my gender gave me a supreme advantage in this art... I could not show particular favour to any one man, to have done so would have endangered the project and undermined my position, but I was terribly grateful to Dale for not submitting to the temptations which were presented to him. It was a difficult tightrope to walk at times. I did have some special feelings for Dale, gratitude that he had not submitted to the temptations he was being manipulated into taking, real respect for his strength of character in resisting those temptations and the usual 'teacher's pet' prejudice in favour of a literate student... I feel certain that my subsequent 'meeting' with Dale was also photographed... When I knew security cameras were nearby I took his arm, just to ensure that I could not be accused of 'hiding away'".
