  1. I am a former plumber, and can assure everyone that toilet cisterns and seats manunufactured from the "asbestos reinforced plastic", Bakelite were very wide spread throughout the uk. As were asbestos cement cisterns (cold water tanks, and feed and expansion tanks) Both should only be removed im a safe manner by qualified people. Bakelite toilet cisterns, they are often dark brown or black, frequentley painted on the exterior. Bakelite toilet cisterns primarilypresent a risk because every time they are flushed there is a degree of abrasion at the lever point wether on a low level, or high
  2. Wing Long Brand, Red Flower Oil. Purchased from Chinese supermarket ( Cheaper ), or from Chinese medical practitioners ( Can be twice the price ), Amazon, Internet ( similar price to supermarket ). Is by far the very best treatment for sunburn, and burns from hot things like fire, stoves, blow torches, welding, etc. that I have ever encountered. I was a plumber, welder and keen home cook. So burns go with the territory. My GF and I once tried Yogurt for sunburn when on holiday in Cornwall and had left the Red flower oil at home. Yogurt didn’t seem to do all that much for the sun burn. It
  3. Also, little if any chlorine, and near same temp as soil so does not set plants back with temp shock or chlorine toxicity.
  4. Blanch coriander and herbs before freezing to avoid them going yellow!!!! I respectfully suggest total rubbish! Totally unecessary, and Takes all the taste away. Take any herb, washed, preferably spin dried in a salad spinner, but it really does not matter so long as you shake most of the water out. Put in a zip lock bag, almost close it. Hold bag to your chest. Squezze out all the air you can and seal it. Freeze it. Been doing this for decades. Works perfectly every time. Want chopped herbs like Cilantro / Corriander, Parsley etc. Take bag out of freezer, and immediatley squish / crush
  5. Alternative to toilet paper! Use a fluffy pup like a certain loo roll manufacturer seems to hint at in their ads ; ) Ever wondered why Rhodesian Ridge Backs have that chocolatey stained strip of fur going the wrong way up their backs? - Because Bog roll can be in short supply in parts of Africa ; )
  6. ***** SERIOUS HEALTH WARNING! **** Using toilet tissue to blow your nose is not the cleverest thing to do health wise. I used to for years, and it can cause serious even fatal health issues. Have you noticed the huge fine cloud of particles that become air bourne when you unroll and tear off bog roll? You probably wont notice it under normal lighting circumstances. Everyone must have noticed it under bright sunlight. Or powerfull electric light. These particles we see with the naked eye, are only the larger ones. Their is real danger in the ones we cannot see with the naked ey
  7. Today the police seized my friends van. The vehicle is fully insured, has a valid MOT, and was taxed on line this Thursday (three days ago). The police officer stated that the vehicle was being seized for no tax. He refused to allow my friend to remove his property from the vehicle. - Is this (refusal to permit property removal) legal? My friend told the officer he had taxed it on line, the officer said the computer says not. It is recorded as untaxed. My friend offered to get a mini statement from the cash point proving the payment to DVLA. The officer was thoroughly unreasonable a
  8. Thanks mate! If I get stopped, road worthiness wise, I believe it will fail on emissions due to it needing full service having been off the road for a year, and due for a service before hand. It is otherwise safe everything works fine. Its very old, but its a Toyota Mike.
  9. Thanks all , I think the best thing for me in view of your advice is to reverse my original plan, and to sequentially do in line an amalgam of what you advise. In other words, I intend to book MOT first thing tomorrow, car will probably fail, drive car to place of repair and back to testers under exemption of vt30. - Would that be legal? From my understanding of what you say I think so. I hope not to get my car seized. Thanks for the advice - Mike.
  10. What is the legal position? My car is currently SORN (no tax, no MOT), I need to drive it to a garage tomorrow to get a full service etc. Then on to a separate MOT center. I have insured the car by phone. I have insurance policy No, docs posted to me today. Can I legally drive it for such purpose? I have searched .gov, VOSA, and Google - could find nothing other than must have valid MOT, Tax, insurance. Help appreciated!

  12. Hi, thanks very much all of you for your advice, - My friend is in quite a panicky! MUCH APPRECIATED THANKS! We have amended letter as advised, including pasting in Installsparks very usefully HB Regs. - Good to show the other party she knows her onions! Re: "admitted over site," the exact words from Benefit Services letter is: Dated: 2nd June 2009. I have reviewed the application for Housing Benefit from your Tennant Mr **. I must advise you that benefit has been stopped from March 2008 and you should arrange for the full rent to be paid from this date. As a result of thi
  13. I have been asked to post this on behalf of a friend who does not yet have access. She is being pursued by The Benefit Services For some £2,500 in rent overpayment's for rent/services for a room she let to a homeless man formerly accommodated by the same Council Benefit Services that is now threatening her. The circumstances are outlined in the draft letter of appeal below. Please advise! I don't know what I am doing! Should she send this as is or what amendments would you suggest? ************ Benefit Services ************************ 19th June 2009   APPEAL  
  14. Thank you for your advice. My questions arising from the application for Summary Judgment hearing of 21st January 2009 are: How to defend unjust enrichment through lost cheque? Or if Bank can’t prove cheque was not encashed, does their claim fail? At the hearing of 21st January 2009, Halifax applied for summary judgment seeking to enforce a Summary Judgment for some £10K plus costs and interest. Arising from an alleged shortfall in full redemption of a mortgage that took place in August 2003. In February 2004 Halifax contacted me to inform me that their bankers Barclays had lo
  15. Allocation Questionnaire N150. I am Not Happy About ticking yes to Box A! Halifax / Optima have selected No to question A.: Do you wish for there to be a one month stay to attempt to settle the claim, either by informal discussion or by alternative dispute resolution? Reference to this site would suggest I tick yes. The hearing (final) they have requested on their AQ is for March next year. Is there really any point in me ticking yes? At the end of the day there is no way I am going to be satisfied with anything short of a full strike out, or withdrawal with costs to me.
  16. Thanks All for your much appreciated help! Littlewillie thanks for sorting post and your support! Ukaviator Thanks but 3rd Judge rejected this argument as not relevant to my case. Although I feel it is relevant, as judge in 2002 questioned the unusually high charges, ordered the Halifax to give me full explanation of them. To which in spite of S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) etc they still haven’t. I believe a proportion, perhaps a high proportion of the charges on my Mortgage to have been far in excess of the true cost of any intervention. In addition, I am confident that at least £1,1
  17. I purchased a house in December 2000. About March 2000, I was attacked by a large group who beat and kicked me like a human football, I suffered brain injury, some permanent physical disfigurement and short term impairment of motor and balance skills. I Fell into arrears, bank took me to County Court about 2002. The Judge told Halifax counsel to deliver accounts with detailed analysis of all charges on the account. The Judge made a charging order, but refused to allow repossession. I have never received the accounts. My health greatly deteriorated and I was unable to maintain payments. In

  19. Thanks for the advice, will condense and repost in legal issues.
  20. I just got my S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) data from the Halifax. It was clearly badly, and in my opinion deliberately badly copied so as to render it as useless as possible. It appears to have been copied out of register with the scanner so as to miss dates and other data. There is a large grey stripe across every page obliterating any data that there may be in this location. In my opinion it is incomplete as it does not even contain the data that they claim to have pulled from their records to comprise their P.O.C. In my personal experience I have encountered what amounts to
  21. The problem I have had all along, is I have no means to finance my defence. I am dependant on legal aid or alternative. I did not enquire re no win no fee as 1) I wasn't aware that they cover debt issues. 2) All that I have heard of these firms is bad news. I have phoned every law firm for miles without success, none of them are interested in debt defence on legal aid. Many tell me that is impossible to get legal aid for debt. I have spoken to the Community Legal Service asking if they can advice. They tell me the reason I am having such trouble is that there simply is no money in dealin

  23. Hi I have been trying to get legal representation on this for some time. I have been before the County Court Judge three times now. I have to file a defence by tomorrow please advise! “Without prejudice” - so the Teflon Hack Fish cannot use it in Court! The following is merely an outline synopsis for discussive purposes, and not in any form necessarily a true statement of fact, or is it intended to be so. Sorry about the detail but I believe it demonstrates grounds for defence, perhaps estoppel of the Halifax’s claim on grounds of both parties actions. And my circumstances, an
