  2. I read in the paper that Ryanair is taking its' website down in the very near future to include taxes and charges in its' pricing structure. Ryanair has always insisted that its' pricing structure is transparent as you know what the airfare is and the taxes etc levied separately are itemised, the OFT (or similar organisation) disagreed. BA make charges for using credit cards as well - £3.50 per ticket. Don't know how you got quoted £960 though, the most expensive I could make a ticket for tomorrow (returning same day) was £295 on their website.
  3. Thanks Pat, I should be more careful with my wording. I had a consensual search in mind when I wrote that, it was late
  4. If you think stop and search powers are limited to known villains then you clearly aren't black/asian/living in London/participating in peaceful demonstrations near sensitive sites etc. This site - Stop and Search outlines what most people need to know. A police officer can act on suspicion rather than the more stringent "reasonable grounds" that a store detective would need to detain and search a suspect. Broadly speaking a search by a police officer can take place anywhere regardless of where an offense is suspected to have been committed.
  5. From your description of events it would appear that even though you were innocent the police officers acted within their powers under stop and search procedures. You can be stopped and searched by a police officer if you are under suspicion of a criminal act such as theft, have a look at this which also includes details of the complaints procedure. Were they plain-clothes Police officers? If so then M&S may not have had anything to do with it, police forces often send plain-clothes officers into shopping areas who operate without the knowledge of shop staff.
  6. Do you mean that treating a gay couple differently from a heterosexual couple is illegal or that by refusing a gay couple a caravan the site has acted illegally?
  7. Why do you assume that the poster is implying that all inhabitants of Birmingham are low-class and loud-mouthed shywazz? The meaning of the sentence does not imply that the OP thinks every Brummie is low-class and loud-mouthed but simply that by travelling on a different service he can avoid those Brummies that are (in the OPs opinion).
  8. Regarding the letter you wrote GuidoT as a business are you able to claim the protection offered by the various consumer protection legislation you referred to?
  9. Why not go after Virgin as well? Anyway, covered here
  10. No, minimum rest between duties for aircrews is laid down in law and there is no discretion to shorten it. I trust your reference to recovering from a hangover is tongue-in-cheek.
  11. I understand that if you do not want to pay the FPN you'll have to go to court. If you do so and you are found guilty of the offence then you are liable to a higher fine, in England the fine could be as much as £2500.
  12. It can take as little as a few hours to get a replacement passport. If this trip was so important to you why didn't you get yourself to your nearest passport office and get a new one issued?
  13. Perhaps you could report it to the police as having been stolen?
