Good analysis - they'll want to delay this because of the high likelihood that the first time the ICO uses his new powers will be against the government, so no point in bringing them in before the election...

I agree with Toby given the outrageous breaches by government. This government seem to think that 'lessons have been learnt' is an adequate response to data abuse. Look at Martin Sixsmith's treatment when trying to apply the Freedom of Information Act.

Toby - that rationale would only hold if you think the same government will be in place after as before the election... if not, it's a perfect poisoned chalice.
