  1. Dr Jenny Harries, the deputy chief medical officer for England on the use of lateral flow tests in schools: "What we are finding is it is highly effective, at probably around 80-85%, in picking up cases at their most infectious period" 1. Rubbish - the figures I've seen are that even with high viral loads the effectiveness is well below those 'probably around' figures she states 2. Where are the stats on what viral loads children carry to support her use? What I've seen is that kids commonly have lower viral loads when infected but are still infectious 3. What

  2. You can't request a hearing in Scotland because you issued the claim through MCOL under English Jurisdiction.So you either attend the defendants local court....or request a remote hearing or inform the court that you will not be inattendance and will rely on CPR 27.9 https://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/rules/part27#27.9

  3. Reg 9 only kicks in if you live with the close relative you rent from. As long as you can prove the tenancy isn't contrived, is at the normal rental rate and has been rented out before, then in theory you should be able to claim housing benefit. They should check and ask for proof of rent being passed to the landlord after the first 6 months.

  4. Hi BankFodder, my emails are all down until Saturday, as Virgin have not been able to send a engineer out to repair the cables, I have logged into my sons account and accessed this website and just found this message, I will of course email the above address as soon as the emails are working which I am advised will be by 3pm Saturday 16 January 2021. I am in the process of doing the AQ and will of course send this as advised by Andyorch by 25 January 2021 to the Court, I am also awaiting the courts response to the failure of the Defendants to follow the procedure regarding change o

  5. What's really frightening is that this won't stop - ever. The police are constantly asking for more powers whilst not using the ones they already have effectively. These extra powers will not be rescinded once the (perceived) need for them abates.

  6. It's terrible value for money, judging by the photos I've seen today. The government doesn't trust families with food vouchers but is happy to give the money to catering companies who then siphon off most of it.

  7. You do nothing but pass the claim onto your insurance company for them to deal with. That's what you pay your premiums for. Do not attempt to engage in any exchange of correspondence with the motorcyclist's lawyer or you may make your insurance company very unhappy. Don't worry that you thought this had all been setled already - you let your insurer deal with it. (If you actually read the T&Cs of your policy all this will be a condition of your insurance and ought to be spelled out for you).

  8. George Osborne, the Conservative former chancellor, has suggested that cabinet ministers - or at least some of them - should get priority for the vaccine. NOPE Last - very last - end of the queue They are most able to work remotely, have no excuses whatsoever for not applying the distancing rules handcock would appear to have demonstrably breached, and are all well paid (even the poorest Labour MP) and paid whether they are at work or not. LAST in the queue.

  9. Lateral flow test are so inaccurate, its questionable that they are of any use at all ACTUAL test figures show they miss around 30% of high viral loads and 60% (more than half) of lower viral loads. I was expecting the accuracy to quickly start to improve .. but that doesn't seem to be the case. They miss 3 out of 10 HIGH viral loads - crazy What I haven't seen is stats on how many of those high (let alone low) viral loads that falsely tested negative actually had symptoms If its quite a few then LFT would possibly seem to present more danger than benefit

  10. I thought Jenny Harries was awful during the first wave. As you say, TJ, those are nothing like the figures I've seen for LFTs. Several times I've read that they're being used for the wrong purpose, particularly in schools IIRC.

  23. Slow down! You're in a brilliant position legally (due to all the good work you've put in, photographing the signage and contacting Nando's). It's highly unlikely that PCMUK will take you to court, and if they did they would be humiliated with all the proof of their pathetic signage. You don't really have to do anything. I only suggested to contact the landowner as a belt & braces approach. This Andy bloke has been told the landowner will be in hot water legally if PCMUK sue you. Leave it at that. Relax now, but come back here if you get a Letter Bef

  33. Why do you "hope" that it doesn't start on 12 January? Of course it doesn't. They have admitted receiving it on 29 December – so time starts from 30 December. Start counting. If you want – and to establish a paper trail, write to them and warn them of the start date for the SAR and at what date they will have breached their statutory obligations. Stop "hoping" things – and start asserting yourself. You are controlling the timescale – not they.

The simple blatantly obvious (IMO) fact that they would send that pitiful crap to feed kids, while very clearly profiting immensly from it should exclude them from supplying food to anyone (except Tory ministers) - - claiming that it was some sort of 'error' is just adding insult to injury and abuse.

  42. I think I know where you got that defence from, but it's outdated now. It needs to be cut down to the bare bones. The time for playing your cards is your Witness Statement further on. Have a look in the PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, start from the last page, and look at threads with "claim form" in the title. There will be loads of examples of defences that you can tweak. BTW, do I take it that on the occasions that your car was at this residential complex, that you weren't the driver of the car?

  43. I'd qualify that by saying that there are many many decent coppers around, undoubtedly the majority in fact, but the fact is that the uniform requires 'unimpeachable' trust, and that has largely gone and being more damaged by the week.

  44. Produce your evidence and state that no contempory notes were made or produced at the time or subsequently under a SAR. You can then state that you do not BELIEVE the notes are contempory and thus may well not represent a true record of the events at the time. You must understand that ranting about thsi will get you nowhere and may well snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. It doesnt matter whether they made the notes up or not, it wouldnt matter if they illegally tapped your phone to obtain evidence, they can still present it and the tribunal decides what they will admit a

Be pragmatic, pay him, get the airstream and then contact HMRC to reclaim the overpaid tax if indeed it has been documented as explained, they may well ask you to fill out new forms. If they wont do this and he isnt forthcoming with a proper expanation just sue him for the difference between the correct figure and what you paid. Tough luck on him for being incompetent, he wont have a defence that stands up. The sum claimed means that you can move it to the high court for enfor

  48. Lets start of by saying KML have not made it easy as their whole lending/setup and commitments are very complex. It is difficult to distinguish if any real commitment/understanding remains between KML and borrowers. Its a one way system with no real intent to provided a positive solution for borrowers but rather to penalise struggling borrowers to further put them in arrears whilst they profit from their sales and earn interest for themselves/investors.
