  1. Appreciate all the comments and information. Son went to appointment yesterday and found it to be not too stressful, in fact probably quite positive. He was however, puzzled why someone who could roll off their NI number, produce a British Passport (which clearly states place of birth as London) along with confirmation by way of a birth certificate plus proving that he had worked for the British Civil Service for over 10 years, is then questioned as to whether or not he is a British Citizen! He will fall in with their plans eg, logging on each day, commitment to meetings and any other 'demands' whilst continuing to search for employment under his own steam. Will keep you all updated.
  2. Hi BN, no, he had not used that calculator - he has just gone for his assessment - so I will know more and will no doubt be asking more questions of you later on. Many thanks for your help
  3. Hi Brassnecked, Many thanks for this information, I will pass it on. From what you say and the article provided, looks like my Son will not be entitled ! x
  4. My Son has been working/living abroad and came back to the UK when my husband passed away a couple of years ago. He looked for employment in the first six months he was here, nothing suitable so he joined a voluntary group abroad for six months. When that contract finished, he returned to the UK again for a further six months again seeking employment. He signed up for a further six months with the Voluntary group and has now returned to the UK permanently 2 weeks ago. We do not appear to have a Job Centre as such, he had to go to the Local Municipal office for information and was told he needed to register online, which he has done. I was quite surprised at some of the information they required.. such as. Debit/Credit card number including the CV number ! He then needed to verify himself via one of several organisations.. eg Post Office, Experian and others. He has now been given an assessment date and I would like, on his behalf, some idea of what can be expected when he goes.
  5. Not sure if this is the place to post this, please move to suitable section if not. I wanted to send a message to someone this morning only to keep being told my inbox was full. This should not have been the case as I emptied it a few months ago. Messages received... "Used 3476% messenger storage". Along with another message saying I have over 1,738 messages (going back over 10 years ?) with a limit of 50 messages ??? It is going to take me ages to delete all these as you can only delete 25 messages in one go !! I also noticed a message at the bottom of this post saying I have used up all the available attachment space ? "You have used 138.68 MB of your 48.83 MB attachment limit." Again this should not be so because I had deleted all attachments a while back.
  6. I would have thought that if we keep the food we produce instead of sending it to Europe, then this will correct, HB. I think supermarkets and the like are encouraging panic buying - you only have to notice shopper habits when there is a bank holiday and the likelihood of a store closing for more than 24 hours to give their staff a break lol.
  7. Stories like the following are fuelling the scaremongering about running out of food ? https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/nov/18/uk-running-out-of-food-warehouse-space-as-no-deal-brexit-fears-rise https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/nov/27/no-deal-brexit-amazon-blamed-uk-lack-of-food-warehouse-space https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/uk-news/brits-buying-up-brexit-boxes-15677814 https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/brexit/8211660/tesco-buys-up-freezers-to-stockpile-extra-food-for-no-deal-brexit/ I have never seen the need to import food stuffs - we managed before joining the EEC... !
  8. I think it is probably safer to pay by credit card for online purchases - they seem to be able to have your money refunded very quickly if there is a problem- whereas with debit cards there seems to be a different system. This company does not seem to be very popular judging by the reviews !
  9. They will probably try to excuse this by saying their rents and other costs are higher by having plots on the station !
  10. Looks like I am late again to the Party. Well done RMW for sticking with this - great result.
  11. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_day This is all I could find in respect of your Business/Working Day query. From what I read, there is no difference. However could not track down anything to differentiate between a 'Planned' or 'Arranged' overdraft.
  12. I know that Hermes do look at this forum so I am not sure why you have advised above that you told them you took the blade out and us that it was still attached !. I guess in a way, if the blade was not in the package then I too would argue that item was no longer a sharp object !! I am not sure where you go from here.
