  1. What is "hypocritical to the extreme" is the fact that you, as a socialist, are complaining about the removal of a fascist dictator. You needs to spend less time combing google for obscure words to type in italics in a transparent attempt to appear learned and more time thanking leaders like Mrs Thatcher for the fact that you are permitted to type your particular brand of tripe. If it were not for leaders of her kind your mother tongue would be German given the way your countrymen folded at the first sign of trouble during the last great war. Trying to re-write history to cr
  2. They cannot make you do anything and for a sum as, relatively speaking, small as this, I doubt they will chase you too hard. Which country are you in? In any case, I would suggest that you have a strong defence, it is referred to as "change of position" and is summarised in Lipkin Gorman v Karpnale Ltd 1991 by Lord Goff wherein he stated. I would suggest you obtain a full breakdown of the sum they allege is owed first and then go from there.
  3. This is usually treated as money paid under a mistake of fact and there is a general right to recover money paid by mistake however, since you are now an ex-employee, the only way the company can recover the money if you do not repay them voluntarily is to bring any claim to a County Court. The employer is entitled to recover the overpayment, subject to estoppel. Where an employer overpays an employee by mistake the courts will normally bar recovery if the employer led the employee to believe that he is entitled to treat the money as his own, not reasonably expect him to notice overpaym
  4. He should claim unfair dismissal without delay. This would appear to be a breach of The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. Dismissals for which the sole or principal reason is the transfer itself, or a reason connected with the transfer that is not for an economic, technical or organisational reason are regarded as automatically unfair under unfair dismissal legislation.
  5. Good advice. Have the agent confirm, in writing, that they consider £550k too much and are are prepared to sell him the property for £490k.
  6. Personally I am still laughing at the notion that banks are "just trying to make a living!" it must be so hard to live on a profit of £11.5 Billion for example, (HSBC) or £9.3 Billion (RBS) or £7 Billion (Barclays) or £5.4 Billion (HBOS) The combined profit from the major banks was almost £40 Billion last year - not bad for companies just trying to make a living.
  7. BT have a service called "Digital Vault" and it's free for anyone for up to 1GB, free for BT Total Broadband customers with storage of 5GB and just £4.99 per month for 50GB. Storegate is almost four times more for the same storage space. It does get mixed reviews however, so you may want to research this before using it.
  8. Section 7.5 of the Banking Code states; Banking Code Standards Board So, the answer is no, they should not have done this.
  9. You can sum up the [problem] in one word. Tax.
  10. Take a look at this thread. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/general-consumer-issues/77981-max-speillman-lost-honeymoon.html
  11. This is a misunderstanding of the law and of the rights of consumers. There is no such thing as the "statute of limitations" there is the Limitation Act 1980. Ok, there is a lot of confusing and conflicting advice on this thread and none of it is really helping the OP. In order to pursue the manufacturer under a warranty, you are entirely bound by the terms and conditions of that warranty therefore, if the warranty expired after 12 months, as most do, this option is no longer available to you. However, your statutory rights under the Sale of Goods Act are ag
  12. ...Which was exactly my point. The reason you give for the badge needing to be displayed rather than just held is of course perfectly proper, but it is also not unreasonable to expect a badge holder to want to protect the badge and their car from vandalism and theft. Try the council parking office, you may be surprised.
  13. I would suggest that whether or not the ticket was correctly issued, you should appeal at once. You have a valid reason for the Blue Badge and an equally valid reason for not displaying it at night. I would consider that the ticket was wrongly issued, although of course, the ticketing warden would not necessarily know this. In this instance, I think you should appeal and you should contact the parking enforcement office at Barnet Council, the details will be on the rear of the ticket. If you get nowhere with them, you should contact the National Parking Adjudication Service.
  14. Very interesting debate. I think "removes the bar on compound interest" is a bit strong and what actually happened was that the Court decided that no interest, whether compound or simple, was recoverable at common law and the court was considered to have no jurisdiction to make an award of compound interest on a personal claim for restitution of a sum of money paid by mistake or following an unlawful demand (Westdeutsche v Islington), but sometimes interest, compound as well as simple, was recoverable in equity. However, in Sempra Metals Ltdv Inland Revenue an award of compound interest
  15. So, what of Westdeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale v Islington London Borough Council ([1996] AC 669) and the fact that the courts’ inability to award interest at common law on restitutionary claims is considered settled by this case? In cases of personal restitution the value of the use of money was prima facie the reasonable cost of borrowing the money in question. The time value of money, measured objectively in that way, was to be distinguished from the value of the benefits a defendant actually derived from the use of the money. In the Sempra Metals Ltd (formerly Metallgesellschaf
