  1. Fantastic work done there Kog. I think a letter or e mail to these people will help our cause. I think only from one person though along the lines of... Although I am not one of your constituents, I would appreciate your kind help in resolving a matter which is affecting thousands of people all over the country. We have been contacting our local MP's about this matter, but I write to you as I see that you have had grave concerns about this matter with your own constituents in the past. And attach the letter. Any coments/help/suggestions? And how come my number of posts aren't moving?I'm still on 557
  2. Had another reply from my MP after saturday surgery. Thank you etc.... Further to my last letter, just to reiterate, I have written to the MINISTERS in question and the FSA.
  3. Went to court again today as a court buddy. My friend against Nasty West. Barrister ( Justin Timson-Smith) for barclays easily got it stayed. Judge didn't even listen to my friend. Told her that all cases are going to be stayed without exception, telling her that february was not a long time to wait Burnley County Court
  4. Looks like we are on a hiding to nothing. Even the MP's are on their side.

  7. This is bl***y draining! Where are all these thousands of members when you need them? No input from Mods. Still no reply from MSE Jenny, despite a PM sent on 4/8/07. Have most members been told not to help us? No-one on MSE seems to be interested. Complain to OFT FSA FOS and yr MP - MoneySavingExpert.com Forums
  8. Response this morning Thank you for taking the trouble to to write to me about an issue which concerns you. However, this is not an matter in which I have any locus as an MEP as it is entirely for decision by the British Government. May I suggest that you contact your MP, who may be able to bring pressure to bear upon the appropriate Ministers. Yours sincerely, Rt Hon Sir Robert Atkins MEP
  9. Just a thought last night. Are you sure these e mails will get the intended response? I just think it is too easy to delete or just set up a template response to e mail everyone back. I always felt it was better to write, then they would have to take the time to actually write back. Unless of course, they are going to write back and not just reply with e mails. JMHO PS Don't forget Alistair Darling ( and don't reply to me with 'OK Sweetheart' he's here [email protected] Don't forget to address it to The Rt Hon. Alistair Darling MP. The Treasury oversees the FSA and he is at the top.
  10. Whilst I welcome the Test case wholeheartedly, the impact on the Consumer from the FSA ruling in favour of the banks has left me cold. This is a subject which seems to have been conveniently glossed over by those involved. What about, Whilst I welcome the test case, I ( and thousands of others) feel that the ruling by the FSA is a kick in the teeth for consumers. ( Let 'em know we are seething!

  12. In the determination of his civil rights and obligations or of any criminal charge against him, everyone is entitled to a fair and public hearing within a reasonable time Any good ohoh? Article 6

  15. Gone to The Rt Hon. Alistair Darling MP Chancellor of the Exchequer. The FSA is controlled by the treasury of which he is at the top.
  16. I think the press and the TV are the way to go as well. But, as the Treasury control the FSA why not let alistair darling also have some of our venom? Browny may be looking for an election in October, he needs our votes. Contact Us

  18. The FSA is accountable to Treasury Ministers, and through them to Parliament. It is operationally independent of Government and is funded entirely by the firms it regulates. The FSA is an open and transparent organisation and provides full information for firms, consumers and others about its objectives, plans, policies and rules, including through this website. An area of this website provides information specifically for consumers on financial products, regulation and their rights.
  19. Found on a web site. The last paragraph is important in my view and shows that we should be outting pressure on the Financial services consumer panel, sems they have the power to overturn this waiver. The OFT says it has entered into an agreement with these providers in relation to the litigation process to facilitate an orderly and timely resolution of the legal issues. News of the initiative was welcomed by a number of parties, including the Consumer Panel. John Howard, Chairman of the Panel, said: "It is terrible that the issue of bank charges has been allowed to rumble on for so long, with thousands of consumers having to threaten action to have their cases settled. "The test case will provide certainty and consistency for consumers in the way firms are dealing with complaints. "We understand and support the decision to allow banks to suspend dealing with claims until the test case has been decided, but will be pressing the FSA to revoke the waiver if the test case becomes protracted and consumers are exposed to undue risk."
