  2. If you take a look at https://www.gov.uk/volunteering/when-people-can-volunteer the DWP1023.pdf leaflet states: Volunteering also gives you a lot more leeway than if you had been mandated to participate in a Mandatory Work Activity - If you find the position does not pan out for what ever reason, if you had volunteered, you can walk away without penalty.

Within one year both DVLA and the BPA do not have a CLUE whether the operators who DVLA are selling personal data to are attempting to charge keepers for "damage" to the land or for "breach of contract". If this is not bad enough, in the past few weeks I have probably received at least 10 enquiries about yet another parking "phenomenon" where there are some parking enforcement ope
