  1. If the voltage lowers you need more current to use the same power i.e Volts X Amps 250 volts times 4 amps for an Hour = 1 Kwhr 220 volts times 4 amps for an hour = 0.88 Kwhr
  2. I rang them and after about 30 mins they said they would reinstate my free caller display and refund from august when I paid advanced line rental. Not sure whether they had charged for earlier periods. I find it amazing they are prepared to use underhand tactics to get a few more quid. They are going to lose customers if they are not careful . I have had a line with them since 1982 and I shall certainly look into whether to continue when my current contract expires. Did you know that they charge you for not using your phone when you have the 24/
  3. I have just been on to them and the best I was offered was a good will jester of the last three months refunded,they wouldnt respond to anything after that.
  4. A big problem that rheumatoid suffers have is when they are first treated they are given old fashioned drugs to try and slow it down,as they dont always work damage continues to the joints,more expensive drugs which have more side effects are then tried which a lot of people cant tolerate so the damage goes on and on.Eventually they may be given one of the anti TNF drugs which in my wifes case slowed furthur progression down.Unfortunatly the joint damage had already been done.Lets hope this new treatment will be used early on when first diagnosed to prevent the irreversable joint damage that
  5. This gadget wont reverse the joint damage that has already been done,it may reduce the need for some of the high strength pain killers and dmards. From what I read it helps the body to reduce the production of some of the joint destroying antibodies which are responsible for eating the joints away.
  6. My wife had a similar letter,signed by WORK COACH ,she is in the support group.I do believe that they are not entitled to see bank statements if they are on contribution based ESA.Its probably just to put pressure on to get one to come off ESA.Sounds like a different take on asking support group people to go in to see work coach which they donot have to do.Support group cannot be mandated to attend to see work group.In my wifes case they cancelled the meeting.However you have to go in to see compliance officer.
  7. Yes but it can take some time,and the letter you recieve may take a bit of understanding so read it carefully.Good Luck
  8. From what do the know, rom: Tilbury Roy Sent: 04 March 2010 14:06 To: Cc: '[email protected]' Subject: Haringey - Council Tax Court Costs 2010/11 Hi Stephen Please find attached breakdown of the service charges in respect of Council Tax Court Costs. I am looking to increase Court Costs from £95.00 to £125.00. Whilst this was meant to be done for 2009/10, Haringey felt that the increase was not appropriate. You will see from the figures that the actual cost is more than the £125.00 requested. I would like to increase this from the 1st
  9. The whole thing is farce ,can you not get into the support group?
  10. From the government website, Contribution-based ESA Contribution-based ESA lasts 1 year if you’re in the work-related activity group. You may be able to re-apply at least 12 weeks after your contribution-based ESA ends. You may qualify again depending on: National Insurance contributions you paid in different tax years whether your health deteriorates and you’re placed in the support group There’s no time limit on how long you can claim contribution-based ESA if you’re in the support group.
  11. I believe you are wrong biglesbo,Contributory ESA support group is indefinate,subject only to remaining in the support group after future medicals/decisions.ESA wrag lasts 1 year.
  12. I used to call one of my Gaffers Sir,and as I was known as a trade unionist his reply to me was always how do you spell that John "cur" he obviously had a sense of humour.
  13. I didnt see any mention of this debate on the BBC,
  14. You will find you have to ring ATOS when you get your appointment and ask for the messical to be recorded.They dont take any notice of what you put on ESA50 requesting a recording.
