1. They mention legal terms such as maladministration and misfeasance.

Misfeasance can be quite difficult to determine - ask any lawyer.

But the term maladministration is a term which describes the actions of a government which can be seen as causing an injustice or faulty, inefficient or improper management or administration, especially by a government body.

In my opinion judging from the definition of the term maladministration VOSA are guilty of such after all they have been involved in what is obvious an injustice and also have been both inefficient and improper in their administration.

Getting an MP or any other governmant body to take action is an entirely different matter.
Thanks both.

Maladministration - is an easy one fail in their function as an office (duty of care context) and injustice.

Misfeasance - agree that this is a difficult one, so I need to confirm that they have failed their duty of office - this could be the case of the "personal attack" email received. This is one example. In the case of VOSA - it's a malpractice type of mentality as I see it - i.e. failed to investigate the catch failures.

Either way, this is getting quite messy now...why or why! I just don't have the time or energy - but actually want to see this progress...
