  1. Hello looking for a bit of clarity on a passport application for my children,and the documents required I understand I need to send birth certificates, but I'm confused with the next request Parents’ documents If claiming British nationality through your father and he was British when you were born, send the following: father’s marriage or civil partnership certificate to your mother or parent 1 Both me and the wife are British So would the above apply? Thanks

  5. Hi, I obtained a bicycle through my company's Cycle to work scheme,however after about six months the rear right side seat stay snapped. The cycle provider replaced the frame. Then last week I noticed a crack in the new frame,in the exact same spot. I'm not sure I want yet another new frame, I've paid this bike off in full Do you think I'd be best asking for a refund,or a suitable new replacement,but different model? Thanks

  7. I had a very interesting conversation with a former TVL agent awhile back(now a Sky tv salesman),he said that it was not worth the time to request a warrant because it would waste(on a good day)3 hours,where he could be making commission from people he'd conned into believing that by buying a license from him,they were avoiding a court summons!

  16. hello! The wife and I recieved a summons for this years c .t of £280+£95 summons costs. Last week I emailed the council to propose a payment arrangement,for the c.t owing,without the summons costs. The council have emailed,rejecting the payment plan and then adding £25 court costs(the court date on the summons is for next weds) phoned the council this morning,and set up a payment plan,for the full amount,the woman told me I dont need to go to court,but my case will still be heard,so my questions are.. should I still go to court,and try to get the council. summons charge removed?
