  1. It does seem that they fail to get it right for either side in so many cases. TBH, I think it would have been so much better to have left the courts to decide it.
  2. Bloody hell, is this still going on? Better have a drink to celebrate ...
  3. Sounds just like my ex. The CSA have been trying to get him to up his payments for some time now, but he seems to have managed to convince them he is on minimum wage due to a similar sort of arrangement - so I get less than £100 per month. Hmm, a plumber earning minimum wage - highly doubtful in my book. He, meanwhile, runs two vehicles, is always in new clothes, always goes out, has holidays abroad and no mortgage left to pay. £70 a week? Mine works out at less than £20 and there is nothing the CSA will do, despite knowing exactly how much money is going into his bank account, as he
  4. Hi tinks. I've got your message but was busy yesterday helping someone prepare their bundle. I'll have a read through over the weekend and give you some opinions then, if I may.
  5. If you get no joy, you can always post up your submission and I will happily have a look/comment on it for you.
  6. The Statute law you need to rely on is the Disability Living Allowance and Disability Working Allowance Act 1991. I have just had a quick google and these people may be able to help too (but I think they may have geographical restraints): http://www.dls.org.uk/
  7. As this is Tribunal rather than a court, you cannot request a set-aside - only take it to the upper tier of the Tribunal. The more case law you can quote, the better. You can drop the case and then reapply for DLA again (outside the proscribed Statutory time-limits) but, IMO, you are better to at least appeal it to the Upper Tribunal. To discuss the difference of opinion may be considered petty (not by me - Tigs dons her tin helmest) and your time would be more productively spent showing that such and such a point within the SOR contravenes such and such a law. You would also be more like
  8. Sorry, I obviously didn't put it very clearly in my response - hopefully this will make a little more sense as I've put my responses in a different colour: Just an update. We are now heading for the UTT. I noticed that the FTT judge made a slip of the pen and the wrong review dates were applied to the original decision notice. The notice was sent back to the judge and once AGAIN, she made a mess up with the dates. Surley this proves incompetence - if a mistake is pointed out to a judge surely they would have been completely aware not to make the same mistake again? This is getti
  9. Bookie's post is, as always, brilliant, but I do have a couple of points to add, if I may. 1. I agree that the statement is clearly inadequate and I would suggest that you ask for a re-assessment of your child. If you need help drafting that letter (it can come from the child's parents and not just the school), then please let me know.It may be that your child requires a specialist placement and that mainstream will be unable to meet her needs. 2. I obviously do not know which are of the country you are in, but there is a HUGE problem with CAMHS in certain areas of the country, espec
  10. Precisely - I think the word to be used is "discrimination", not "racism". Oh, hang on - that is what I posted about - a quite articulate account of diversity in species and the contribution LGBT people have historically made to the human race, in response to a post stating that nature favoured "hetros", if memory serves. BTW, I didn't even get a CAGBOT message to inform me why this post was unapproved, never-mind the common courtesy of an individual response. To be honest, this is why I rarely post on CAG any more. I browse most days and usually only post or PM when it is som
  11. I do have to say that I found the homophobic comments to be far more likely to be in contravention of site rules that the comments on the Stephen Fry thread (I only glanced at the other one, so I can't comment on that). If the comments were targeting a group of people, then that is obviously wrong. However, I cannot see how a discussion of the merits, or otherwise, of a debate which is widely available on the internet can be construed as anti-religious. I also do not believe that issues such as sexual abuse should be a taboo subject, whether the perpetrator is secular or religious, as by
  12. I'm sorry if this all reads a little harshly - it isn't meant that way, but it's important to be clear on what the process is and how you need to work within it.
  13. Yeah!!!! Well done girlie - it's a great feeling when you get through all of this, isn't it? Keep arguing over placement - you'll get there xxx
  14. It is - they confirmed the date to me on the phone and in the letters I ahve received they have said that because I have ignored the SD of 08/08, they are going to personally serve it one me - but it wasn't ignored, it was set aside!
  15. Cheers 42man - if you could move it to a new thread (perhaps with a link to this one) it would be grand. I was thinking of writing to them, including a copy of the set-aside, and copy on the Judge and also the OFT. What do you think? I'm a bit hacked off, tbh - they also haven't stopped calling me and I'm feeling somewhat harassed.
  16. I have still got the dismissal from the last one - the thing is, this is actually the same SD from last time, not a new one, I discovered today when I rang back to query the date on it.
  17. AAAARGH!!!! This one is not dead and buried as I thought! I have received several letters from Crapquest stating that I had not replied to their previous Statutory Demand - I phoned them and then got a letter of apology stating that I was correct in stating there had been a set-aside and they would not be pursuing a set-aside. A few more threat-o-grams followed and then today, while a friend was looking after my daughter while I popped out for 10 minutes, someone from scotcall came to the door to serve it. She obviously didn't accept it as she wasn't me (and it was in my previous nam
  18. No, just to check whether a company is still at its' offices as it appears they have fleeced my mother for £350 and their phone is no longer working.
  19. Thought that while I was on, I would update this one. I still don't have a valid CCA from Capquest - however, I keep getting letters from them advising me that as I ignored their SD, they would be sending the boys round to serve it personally. I did ring them, and got a letter of apology, but they've sent two more threat-o-grams since then. I'm not particularly bothered, but do like to make Capquest work for the money they are not getting from me - any ideas chaps?
  20. Thanks Wingus - I'm going to get onto the case tomorrow.
  21. I don't know if they will actually class it as fraud and, knowing the police, they will say it is a civil matter.
  22. OK, statement as it currently stands is, I'm sorry to say this, rather useless. Bookie is right - it neither quantifies nor qualifies the special educational needs and the provision to meet them. What is in part 5 should be in part 2 and what is in part 6 should be in part 3. Unfortunately, you cannot appeal against the LA refusing to amend the statement following an annual review. therefore, i would suggest you send a letter requesting re-assessment of your child's needs. If they refuse, then it is the tribunal route in the same way as if they had refused an initial Statutory Assessment.
  23. Some utter, utter see you next tuesday who I have just found out has taken my mother for a ride to the tune of £350 for mis-sold PPI which she doesn't even know that she has got!
  24. Hi Guys Does anyone live in Darlington who fancies going on a little reccy for me within the next couple of days? I would be extremely grateful.
