  1. I hope you don't find this comment insensitive, because that's not how I mean it, but I can imagine the first response you'll get from the council is: "if the road was icy, and you knew that, why weren't you driving at a speed that would have avoided such a severe accident?". If you're lucky to be alive, you must have been driving in a manner similar to the way you would have been in warm, dry, conditions?

  2. the police were not so now cannot be involved and more importantly won't ever be interested in a bunch of silly teenagers. its not a fine and never can be. you might get scary letters from either RLP or DWF. which can be totally ignored and binned. lots of threads here to read in the forum you found and posted in. lastly ...GROW UP!! i know it tempting with your peers around you to impress but its seriously not worth it . dx

  3. I now work in the public sector and yes there are continuity/contingency plans, but what this really means, is that those remaining on the frontline are faced with very difficult choices. If you have 25% + staff missing, it is not just a case of cutting back on 25% of the work or arranging for some of this to be completed elsewhere. Implementing the plans takes time up as well. And if you have people in crisis, then choices have to be made as to which ones are more urgent. This is why some NHS senior managers are asking Government to consider increasing Covid measures, to reduce some of the pressures being faced.

  4. BankFodder dx100uk Manxman in exile stu007 I have re read all my posts on this subject and realise that i have been coming across as a complete T*T. I humbly apologise to you all for that. I recieved an email attachment from this dealers solicitor this morning. As it is the Christmas nothing can be done at the moment, so i will post further in a couple of days. I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

  5. A breakdown should be given within the particularised claim to quantify the losses claimed along with whether in negligence of breach of contract......breach of duty causation and loss as the Defendant Part 20 Claimant must be in a position to be able to plead with fact given that counterclaim has already been submitted earlier albeit with no great detail or support but now the court wish to test the counter claim. Its no use now rushing around to try and get expert testimonial and what it will cost to correct....that should have all been finalised at the time the counter claim was initially filed....after all the OP was prepared to plead this la

  6. If the pipe is not passing over their land or vacate in water over their land then it is simply visually unsightly and unless there is some local agreement or law that prevents it, then you are completely in your rights. If your builders et cetera are getting hassled by them then I suggest that you start keeping a very detailed diary of any incidents – dates, times, who said what to who – and also don't get drawn into anything. If it starts to get nasty then keep us updated.

  8. @phineasferb12 DX can correct me if I'm wrong, but I'll give you a bit of a wider explanation in the hope of putting your mind at rest. When you were caught by the security guard he's taken your details and potentially - but not definitely - passed them back to a company called Retail Loss Prevention (RLP), or another similar company, for whom he likely works. They will contact you requesting that you pay money to recoup the cost of the security guard's time in dealing with you. That in itself is nonsense because his time is fully covered through the contractual price Boots will have agreed with the security provider. He m

  10. I've tried to tidy up the English in the defence, cut out the long-winded bits (the judge for insistence will not give a damn if the OP had his lunch interrupted) and make it flow more logically. I'll have another go later. 1. (14) is unclear. Who suggested hiring tools? When was the £3000 paid? Who paid, you or the builder? 2. What happened between 26/10/2020 and 12/01/2021? This is the period when everything went wrong. Did the builder simply refuse to finish the job? 3. How is the £2866 figure reached? £1433.33 you "owe" for Project 1. £1080 you "owe" for Project 2.

  11. Dx: the TOC has a “slam-dunk” Byelaw prosecution (if the OP hacks them off!) a DCA can’t prosecute, let alone prosecute and definitely win : The TOC can! IF the TOC took this to the Magistrates, the bench might see the OP had bought a ticket, and could ask the TOC “are you sure you wish to proceed?” if the TOC say yes, and under Byelaw 17, the Mag’s don’t have discretion as to if the offence has been committed if the terms of the strict liability are met. https://www.nationalrail.co.uk/railway-byelaws.pdf The OP didn’t have a valid ticket with them.

  16. The logic which leads to a breach of the Data Protection Act is if the company requesting the information of the keeper had no lawful basis or rather reasonable cause to request the information from the outset. This is one of the most comprehensive comments I have seen written on the subject. It is my understanding that in order to win any claim for breach of the Data Protection Act you would also have to prove they had no lawful basis to demand payment from you. What makes this more difficult is that whether there was a lawful basis to demand payment from you was never ruled on by a judge. It would be far easier to bring a claim f

  18. I think you may have hit the nail firmly and squarely on the head there! I strongly suspect that there was a cross-over period where @simeon1964 considered he was representing himself, but had not adequately communicated that to his solicitor and/or the court and/or the claimant. Thus applications and court documents continued to go to the OP's solicitor, and the request to suspend enforcement action also went there rather than to the OP, and because the OP ignored those requests (which his solicitor may have agreed to but didn't pass onto the OP) the claimant and his solicitor got a bit hacked off with him. Of course, I'm only guess

  21. Thank you so much @BankFodder @honeybee13 and so many others that I will mention shortly since I’m on a mobile device. I will write every single detail that I noted down from the Judge’s decision, and I hope this helps others as much as it did me. It was really unfair the way I was treated and it made me feel very sad quite often and stressed to the maximum. Things like this can have all sorts of impact on people.. however one thing I have to say is to have faith in humanity and of the good people out there/ on here. My eternal gratitude to every one of you.

Today I want to share the good news that thanks to everyone on this forum and the outstanding support I received by esteemed forum members, I won the case against Express Solicitors. It was a long two hour hearing, and I was self represented, whilst Express had appointed a barrister, however it was a very fair hearing and the judge dismissed the case. I will write the reasons that the judge stated for his decision shortly, as I have just come home, but I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you good people on here. It’s been two v

Today Hermes emailed me agreeing to it and saying the funds' transfer has been scheduled. Once I receive them, I will update you guys to close the thread and inform the court that my claim has been settled.

If you are having problems logging in, or would prefer not to use MCOL, you can fax, email or post your response to the Court instead. If you send your response by e mail please send it to [email protected] ensure you quote “Claim number xxx xxx (type of response i'e AOS , Defence, N180)” in the subject field.

Enforcement normally begins at 57mph and I (and many others here and elsewhere) would be interested to see where the national guidelines are not being applied (so that we can advise others).

  33. Only you can decide but it feels low risk to me. A settlement agreement is just that, a statement of terms of parting company; its mutual agreement. So not a dismissal. I would guess any disciplinary was resolved through the SA and not before, so does not have an outcome?

  41. I actually wrote asking what evidence they had. I knew they couldn't send me any, just wanted to buy time. I got a letter back after three or so weeks saying they don't give evidence at this point, and again offered me a course or the points - with a fresh start date 'from the [new] date of this letter', it should be noted. Note also that the person responding began their letter by saying I was spoken to by the police officer who saw me with a phone, which of course was not the case. I doubt I can use that in my defence, but I also believe that if i had written back pointing out the error, they would have sent yet another fresh date from which I had the requ

  43. Yes providing they send you the Notice of Discontinuance by return email with evidence that the N279 has been filed with the court. If you have not had a satisfactory response by say Fri 7th Jan inform them that you still intend to submit your statement and evidence by the 10th Jan pursuant to the courts directions dated xxxxx. It is standard practice that the claimant inform the defendant of this intention as you have the option to set it a side...so if both parties are in agreement .then there is no question to possible costs...not that there are in Small Claims Track as CPR 38 Discontinuance and costs are not applicable. Well done.

  45. Thank you. I understand that you feel the need to cancel – but that assumes that other companies are better. They aren't – they are all the same. If you're going to deliver a good slap to this company, then I see a basis for staying with them. Their preference would be that you leave them and go and cause trouble for somebody else. If they want you to go then as far as I'm concerned, that's an excellent reason to stay. Give them the lesson and then stay with them so they know that in future if they try anything funny, they know what's coming. Otherwise you will have go to another company that will behave in some similar way at some point and y
