  1. I'm pretty sure it was a debit card not a credit card.
  2. Hi I pre-ordered some goods from http://www.black-eagle.co.uk in Auguest last year. You could order the item at a discount with the promise that it would be delivered a few months later. Well the date passed and I emailed then and found out it wasn't made yet. I did this every few weeks or so. I March I got an email saying "We are working through the orders and have decided to cancel and refund due to the delays. You will receive an update in the day day or so." I didn't get anything. Then I get: "It seems we are not able to process refunds after so long a period. Therefore
  3. Thanks again for the information provided. Some of this is going to be very useful. I also appreciate the early posts being removed because frankly I was a bit shocked when I first read them. I'm not asking for validation of my needs in the context of other treatments or people's personal opinions. I'm asking specifically for consumer help. Feels like I went to the parking ticket forum and was told to pay up and shut up! Again, I'd appreciate it only those with actual advice would contribute. The other posts are unhelpful and pointless.
  4. Thank you the last two posters. That's somewhere for me to start.
  5. Me? As I said I've been paying tax for 25 years. How could I possibly be a new citizen? The surgeon told me this wouldn't have cropped up a year or so ago and differs from PCT to PCT. So it's new and location dependent. It's nothing to do with me or any other tax payer thinking they have a right to all and any treatment. I'm in pain all the time, I cannot run for a bus, I cannot do most exercise. A surgeon says I need an op.
  6. Your personal views on NHS spending don't really constitute advice to be honest. If you can't help with consumer advice then please don't bother to chip in. For the record: The surgeon says I need it not me. They are operating for free on all those women who's breast implants might be dodgy despite lack of evidence of harm and the fact that they had them done for cosmetic purposed. In the hospital my wife gave birth to my last child, she was, according to the nurse, the only UK resident in the entire post-natal ward. The other 9 women had in her words "turned up from god knows wh
  7. Last year I went to the doctors because of pain in my low abdomen on my left side. I was eventually referred to a consultant surgeon who instantly diagnosed an inguinal hernia. He said I needed surgery and went about setting this up. I heard back from his secretary saying they'd done their end and were now referring it to the funding body. Then this week I get a call from my doctor telling me that they will not be operating because the NHS doesn't pay for such operations any more. Apparently it's not affecting my life enough. The hernia means I cannot run and so I asked my doc "so you're
  8. Cheers If it turns out to be privately owned, then what?
  9. Here is a closeup of a sign. [url=http://picasaweb.google.com/NeilandEmma/ClampingScene/photo#5063224605993144674][/url] http://picasaweb.google.com/NeilandEmma/ClampingScene/photo#5063224605993144674 I photographed all the signs I could see so there are not others that don't appear in my web album. As you can see, the only outward facing sign that appears to relate to the road rather than the parking bay is to the left of the property on the fence at a c. chest height. As it happens that sign was obscured by a white van at the time so I didn't see that. But it doesn't appear to cove
  10. There is a bit of drop curb. What if a few inches of my car was obstructing that? I don't have the photos of my car parked there but they do so I can't say for sure. I'm thinking that if someone parked their car in such a way that it partially obstructed the entrance to my home driveway, that I couldn't clap it, tow it miles away and demand £300 off them? Would I be right in thinking that my main case is the fact that it is, or certainly appears to be a public highway and that, plus the positioning of the signs, removes any reasonable assumption that I willingly and knowingly consent
  11. Here are some links to photos: http://picasaweb.google.com/NeilandEmma/Cl...922914605371554 My car was pretty much parked behind that BMW. As you can see cars are parked are on that extra road width delineated by the concrete strip. The property in question is between the white van and the BMW. You can see a white sign which is the clampers' sign. http://picasaweb.google.com/NeilandEmma/Cl...923253907787986 Here you can see the road edge where it meets the property and where the curb drops, ostensibly to allow access to those brick-paved parking bays. I didn't park in those ba
  12. Hi My car was towed away by a private clamping firm within minutes of me leaving the car and I was forced to cough up £300 to get it back from a pound miles away from the site. The situation is this: The road I parked on appears to be a public road. It is sign-posted by the local council and has official-looking yellow line etc on it. The road widens by the width of a car – like a layby where a number of shops back on to it. The yellow line continues to hug the curb along this stretch. This "layby area" is delineated from the rest of the road by a 5” strip of concrete set into the
