  6. I've just had this letter. We told them last night we were looking to move all our accounts mortgage etc to another lender. To be honest, the person on the other end of the line couldn't care less. We've been with them 10 years plus. I do feel sorry for the call centre staff, they must be taking a lot of pressure at the moment and I realise its not their fault. I don't know who to transfer to. I have a nasty feeling all the banks will follow suite. I just can't believe they can get away with this. The arragonce of banks amazes me. Has anyone read the pamplet that
  7. It is an old wives' tale to say it is unlawful to give a bad reference (something I here a lot of people saying in RL). I think this misconception comes about because often an HR department will only give a very 'bland' confirmation that an employer worked somewhere between given dates, due to fear of providing a 'dodgy' reference. Think about it. If I gave an actual 'bad' employee a glowing reference to a new company. Say that employee repeated their performance at the new company and lost them money. The new company could possibly sue me for misrepresentation (assuming they ha
  8. You are quite correct, apologies. However, prior to 2000 they were know as Stipendiary magistrates. "Until August 2000 these District Judges were known as Stipendiary Magistrates, but were renamed in order to recognise them as members of the professional judiciary" (source: Magistrates and Magistrates' Courts)
  9. That is not always the case. What happens if a particulary grumpy Stipendiary magistrate is sitting? (a single, legally qualified mag who sits alone). Stipendiary magistrates do sit quite often in the magistrates court. I would be inclined to listen to what your solicitor recommends as to the best venue for your case. Magistrates are sometimes seen to 'side' more with the Police. If this case is not particulary strong, I bet you CPS drop it if you go for Crown Court trial. Crown Court judges do not take kindly to the CPS presenting 'flimsy cases'. As I said, I'm sure you
  10. I'm really sorry, but speaking as an ex Police Officer I can honestly say the majority of 'private' security personnel I met did not know the law and were not shall we say, 'intelligent' of human beings. I beleive this is an area we need a lot more regulation in. How much training does a private secuiry person get? Maybe two or three days? Compared to the best part of a year a Police Constable is put though. I'm sorry, but this is just my personnel opinion and I feel very strongly about it. People deserve to be treated fairly, not patronised by a 'rent-a-cop' who has not been
  11. The legislation has changed. I think you are referring to the term 'arrestable offence'. There was an old definition of what an arrestable offence was:- 1: Offence for which the sentance is fixed by law (eg murder) 2: Arrest for which a person over the age of 21 on first conviction *may* be commited to prison for five years or more. 3:... (sorry, I can't remember the rest. Its been a while since I left the force!) SOCPA is now the power that dermines whether an arrest is lawful. Under Socpa I believe the 'any person' power of arrest is only for indictable offenc
  12. Is the PRS appointed by the Government? From what I have read, they are a self appointed group. They state they collect revenue on behalf of recording artists. Is every single artist a member of their society? Suppose I create music and want nothing to do with PRS, but still don't want people playing my music on the radio. How do I get my royalties collected?
  13. I'm pretty certain they can't treat you less favourably. Someone will be along soon who has more expertise I am sure. Out of interest. Do you need to express milk? I'm certain the law provides that the employer has to make provision for this and your working environment must be suitable (e.g a clean warm room - and not toilets).
  14. I appreciate I may struggle to prove this on the 'balance of probabilities', but I am telling the truth. Looking at the screw top, I don't believe I would have been able to tell whether it was previously open. If you twist the lid up tightly, it is flush with the sealing ring below (if that makes sense). I may not be a consasuer of fine wine, but I know what wine should taste like :o) I will write a letter to the Sainsburys head office expressing my dissatisfaction with the good name of Sainsburys which I had previously implicitly trusted. I don't see the point in taking i
  15. I purchased a bottle of white German wine from Sainsburys on Monday. The cost was £6.97 and the product had stickers on indicating it had won several awards. Imagine my dismay when after cooking dinner for my partner we sampled said product to discover the bottle contained nothing more than a high volume of what I believe to be water. T The bottle lid did come off quite easily. It was a screw top bottle with no shrink wrap seal on it. (consistent with the other bottles on the display). I suspect someone had opened the bottle, drunk it and refilled with water. Possibly t
