  1. ⁸Even if this vehicle was being sold by a Rolls Royce garage, it's still an old banger valued at scrap money in the open market. Expecting a faultless vehicle would be very optimistic. Certainly the vehicle must be roadworthy, so no brakes would be a problem, but worn brakes would not, as long as the car stops within accepted standard. Same for clutch, small leaks (which are absolutely normal on an old engine), air con not at sub zero temperature, some rip in the seats, some dents in the body, etc. The fact is that the neighbour has gambled on a car and the gamble unfortunately did not pay off. I and many others have gambled with old bangers in our days, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. I won a couple of times and lost once, that's the nature of gambling. If you want a faultless vehicle buy a new one or a used one from a real dealer with a real reputation and real warranty in case things go wrong. Old banger=gambling.
  2. So it wasn't due when you purchased the car, why would they do something ahead of time? IMO the garage will rightly tell you to have it done yourself at your expenses, unless they really like pleasing customers (don't think so)
  3. I wouldn't call that a minimum really. In that case they messed up quite badly by saying that they didn't know if the data was destroyed or lost. A minimum standard would be set for a couple of documents disclosed late and i don't think it would be any near the £750.
  4. You think i'm joking? I'm not. These fools sent me a doctored document to prove i was in arrears and using a calculator the balance was nil. They are a proper bunch of halfwit pompous monkeys. No surprise they are neighbours to many politicians in an affluent borough (richmond)
  5. Interesting, thanks. I had read the £750 sentence and it's just right that large organisations pay this kind of money for minor distress, this would in time set a very high compensation rate for serious breaches/infringements. So banks need to be aware. I am playing a waiting game. After the first 30 days, they kept on sending me an email every thursday saying that they will make the rest of the disclosure next week. This has happened for 4 weeks already. Of course i submitted a complaint to ICO on day 32 but heard nothing yet. I sent the company a response to their delaying email saying that all disclosure must be complete without any form of tampering. Just to remind, they sent me (by mistake) a few internal emails in which a manager asked to manage me carefully because i could revealed things to other leaseholders and this would be a problem. He then asks specific questions on how to shut my campaign down, but apparently nobody ever responded. I asked for these responses and i think now they are modifying them so to cover their wrongdoings. But i am confident that they are of such incompetence that they will screw things up for themselves and produce something damning. In any case as soon as they send anything i will take them to court as they're now out the month statutory timeframe by 4 weeks.
  6. If you read it properly, the 10% is only for them to look at the paperwork and doesn't give any assurance. They are leeches, so be extremely careful with what you sign, that's why I suggested a specialist
  7. They mixed up your request with someone else's, clearly. That's why they said it's an 8yo vehicle. Let them know their error.
  8. It would be a very lengthy and difficult task. You would need proof that this has happened and has impacted on you negatively, morally or financially. IMO certain things must be dealt with on the spot. For example, if she started reading out something you don't want others to know, tell her to shut up. Make a scene, tell her off in front of everyone, firmly but politely, without swearing or threatening. I'm sure this would be sufficient to let them learn that you don't like publicity about your personal matters and they'll stop. Done and dusted.
  9. Maybe a new one to me. Did you see the car "live", or just in pictures? Did you check that that the vin on v5c matched the number plate? Problem i can see is that the vehicle doesn't exist or, you'll be chasing a ghost for the holding fee while holding a piece of a v5c.
  10. Play their game. I suppose it's the same receptionist doing it, so what about saying something embarrassing? i.e. walk in and very politely say: "oh, good afternoon, how's your hemorrhoid today? You looked like a ghost yesterday"
  11. Collar means talk in a firm manner, without letting them put you down. My advice is based on my experience. The more you show them that you're not scared and you can't be walked over, the more they'll respect you. 100% success rate following this line. But of course, i accept that there might be employers out there ready to sack workers who don't accept to be treated like slaves, even though i haven't met them in modern times. Nowadays employers seem to be playground bullies: as soon as you stand up to them they love you.
  12. We played a long prank on a guy at work by hiding a security tag in his wallet. But after setting off the alarm at his local tesco several times and being let off, one lazy morning they were extremely helpful and scanned everything on him to find the problem. He knew it was us and next day we had to buy him lunch: a t-bone steak with all trimmings. But it was worth it! Usually security are nice and polite, unless you go on the defensive. That's my experience, of course there's always the black sheep.
  13. If you have seen my past posts about employers taking the Mickey out of workers, you'll know that I've never been scared of starting a war to protect workers' rights. So in my opinion if this employer wants to change the rules of the game after setting them, I would do everything in my power to get paid and if more bs is thrown at me, my mission would be to destroy them. Unfortunately i lived the times when unions where in the business of protecting workers' rights and i haven't changed my principles. Unlike the union bosses and most reps who now are just working to obtain something for themselves and stitch workers up all the time. We even have some fake union bosses online giving bad advice, usually to submit to slavery, and claiming that the law is against workers. It is not, and we fought for it. People lost their jobs, their houses and were blacklisted so not to be called for large contracts (see McAlpine) and now the corrupt union officials are spitting on them. Disgraceful!
  14. In principle yes, they're out of time, however, like all sort of conveyance I prefer to employ a professional. For the sake of a few hundred pounds they do all the work and know all the tricks and loopholes. They're also insured in case they mess it up. My advice: employ a lease specialist solicitor and stay away from the cheap internet firms.
  15. WW3 is the answer if they don't pay at first request.
  16. Simple answer: it doesn't work. I'm in that boat at the moment and asked to be referred to a specific hospital citing patient choice. Been told i cannot be referred to that hospital because my case it's not serious enough. Nice one, thanks!
  17. This really upsets me. If your boy doesn't mind changing job, tell him to collar the manager and get the money out of him. If he doesn't pay up, sue the company with only 7 calendar days notice.
  18. I was reading a post about hermes and declared value which should have been 1100 but was found to be recorded at 700. So i thought to share what i have been doing since alitalia sold me a no luggage ticket despite me paying for a full ticket. There's a feature in windows 10 which allows you to video your computer screen while you book services or buy goods or do anything else. It's the windows logo key + G key. I'm sure other operating systems have similar features. Videoing this, it's a bit like recording the telephone calls; it proves what we have done at point of sale so any "glitch" would be the seller problem and any dispute would be settled in our favour. Thoughts and opinions welcome.
  19. When safety was a prime factor for railway operators, there was always a member of staff on the platform assisting the train driver with dispatch. This still happens in some TOC like south west trains which still employs guards and at peak time, platform assistants. However, due to the damn money, this is destined to change so less people will be employed and more money will be distributed to the shareholders. So, should one slip in the gap between the train and platform, the driver might not see them and run them over. It happens more often than reported on media. TOC prefer to pay compensation to the injured/deceased family rather than more wages to keep the railway safe. This is the result of privatisation. Welcome to the world where money is more important than life!
  20. In this instance they don't even have a proper address. Definitely ignore.
  21. Looking at all cyclists cam footage, the met police called in lots of "bad" drivers and the best they could do was to give them words of advice (apart from extreme cases of assault). There's a reason why official cameras and body worn cameras are registered, approved and the footage download must follow a specific procedure. Too easy to cut bits and bobs of a home made footage, too easy to extract a still picture from a video to rely on it for prosecution or parking ticket. Look at this from a grand angle, you were in traffic and stopped near the dyl otherwise you would hit the car in front. Then the same car in front moves and 7/8 seconds later you move. In those 7/8 seconds, someone takes a picture of your car. You're stationary on a dyl but for a good reason! In other words, forget about it.
  22. Nowadays people take pictures and videos of everything. Apart from clogging their phone memory, i don't know what they do with it. Would be funny to go around with a fake full size broadcast camera and as soon as someone starts filming, point it at them. I bet they'd start screaming: "Privacy! Data protection!"
  23. You're on a winner then, at least to crash his credit rating with a ccj
