  1. Hi all, I'm conducting research into colour vision in employment situations. I'm a train driver that has been 'off track' (restricted from driving duties) for 2 1/2 years as I failed the Ishihara Colour Vision Test at a medical. I have conducted a long research project into colour vision in employment and am looking for people that work in safety critical industries that require normal colour vision but have been restricted in their work or dismissed because they have failed a colour vision test. Colour vision discrimination could be classed as indirect sex discrimination in law as it disproportionately affects males more than females. (it has been found at tribunal and appeal tribunal level to not be a disability under the Equality Act) I am also interested in the circumstances that the Ishihara Test is conducted under, whether a full spectrum light source was used, whether the room was otherwise dark, how long was allowed for each plate etc. Please let me know if you can help Blueskies (yes, that one for the old school on here)

  3. I think everyone in it has either contacted me or posted on a thread in this sub-forum in the past week. I think permissions could be sought easily. I am posting a copy to you today BankFodder
  4. Good news, I have found my copy and it isn't too scratched for my PC to read it. I am currently ripping it to my hard drive so can make more copies.
  5. Lisa (vampiress) or Paul (seminole) , have emailed them. Cillitbanger (can't remember her name)
  6. I have but not sure if it plays. Will look this evening
  7. With the sad passing of Martin, I thought it would be nice to recount a very happy memory of this lovely man. Not long after I discovered CAG in 2006 there was talk of a CAG meet. The venue was a camp site in Gloucestershire. When I arrived the last thing I expected was to find a disco (Yes, in a tent in a field). Behind this was one of the most eccentric but wonderful men, Martin Kay - Martin3030. What followed was a great party with huge amounts of alcohol consumed. After the event a DVD was produced of it, compete with introduction by Martin. After this I joined the site team and got to work closely with Martin and became friends with him. I have had occasional contact with him since I retired from this site and I will miss this. RIP Martin
  8. Someone needs to remove the details from the wiki also. http://www.consumerwiki.co.uk/index.php/Main_Page http://www.consumerwiki.co.uk/index.php/Guide_to_reclaiming_bank_charges
  9. Thanks, can anyone give me a link to the OFT case please?
  10. Hi all, I am back to pursue a couple of cases for my partner now and, having not been active on this site for a few years, I am a bit rusty as to the procedure (I'm guessing things have changed in this time) Can someone point me in the general direction of the procedure for reclaiming bank charges please. The Wiki hasn't been updated for a long time and I'm not sure how current it is. Bluey P.S. Hi to all my old friends on here. When I am up to speed I will return to helping out where I can.
  11. It is with great sadness that I have read this thread. As a former moderator of this site, I always took the view that, as long as the post/thread did not break the law or potentially libel anyone and put the site as risk, then it was allowed to stay, whether I or anyone else liked the post or not. When in doubt, I often referred to a senior moderator. I think I deleted about 5 posts in the year I was a moderator. I spent some time away from the site during my move from Kent to the North East and, quite rightly, my moderator status was removed until I returned. When I returned to the site things had changed massively and it was not to my liking at all. Previously nearly all decisions were discussed among moderators and we ran with things by consensus. Even when Dave (co-founder) proposed that I become a moderator, he asked the advice of currently serving moderators instead of promoting me on his own authority. When I returned to the site there was a 'manager' who had considerable say in what happened above the opinion of the moderators and I was removed as a moderator as I was offline for 3 weeks. I didn't challenge it as I had already become severely disillusioned with what was happening and as a result have only visited the site a handful of times in the past 3 years.
  12. I just thought I would add my name to the already long list of condolences. Rooster was a great help when I became a site helper and later a moderator on this site and gave me a lot of personal support via private messages both in my claims against my bank and also other personal issues I was going through at the time. I echo BF's comment that although I knew Rooster through here, I had not met him in person, nevertheless he had a large impact on me. Rest In Peace Rooster xxx
  13. Once again the old boys from Eton have helped out their old friends. A sad day for the justice system in this country.
  14. Wise point Yourbank. The use of Lebanese Loops is rife nowadays in most cities and although you can't get your card out, a thief may be able to.
  15. I had the great pleasure of having met Henry when I worked for SouthEastern. I worked a special train bringing him back from the Normandy commemorations. Although a little hard of hearing he had all of his faculties and was a very nice man. It is sad to see that he has died but his memory will live on in the people whose lives he touched. RIP
