  2. It is now being reported that Mitsubishi offices have been raided, after the company admitted that some of its vehicle performance statistics produced were not true. This follows on from the VW scandal, the latest of which is that apparently VW might have to buy back vehicles sold in the US at a cost of approx. $7 billion. Can we presume that most vehicle performance stats produced by a company or on their behalf are unlikely to be true ? The stats are likely to be manipulated so they compare favourably with similar vehicles and have nothing to do with the performance drivers will exper
  3. There was a BBC2 programme on last night, now available on i player, showing the BMW Mini production plant, where they have over 1000 robots involved in production. They also employ 4000 people as well, to do the tasks that robots cannot currently perform. The question is who will be the future consumers buying products made mostly by robots. With humans being made redundant by robots, there will come a time when there are insufficient people with enough money to buy the products. The companies investing in too much robot technology to replace humans will also reduce the size of the mar
  4. Mediation is a must if you want to stay on the right side of the judge and avoid the opposing party using a refusal to mediation against you during the case. Specific attention is being paid by courts to timescales in orders; and the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as mediation. Practice Direction- Pre-Action Conduct section 1.2(2) and section 8 asks participants to consider ADR methods before going down a more formal route, and the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) part 1.4(e) asks parties to explore the suitability to mediate. If a mediation offer is not considered or explore
  5. New Which? research reveals that three quarters of you are completely confused by your energy bills, with 74% of people who receive energy bills finding them very complicated. . Our research, where we surveyed nearly 1,600 Which? members about their household bills, also revealed that 18% of the people we asked are not confident they can check the accuracy of their energy bill. It's vital to be able to do this if you want to be sure you're not paying more than you should for energy Which? believes that energy bills should be easy to understand, which is why we are running a c

  7. Vouchers, or gift cards, can be a great idea at Christmas. Give them to a teacher, a colleague, or a teenager perhaps, and you can show you have at least thought about them, without second-guessing their tastes. But last year thousands of consumers were left out of pocket, when HMV, Blockbuster, Comet and Jessops all went out of business after the Christmas period. Most vouchers were eventually honoured but only after a period of uncertainty. In the case of Jessops, now under new management, some people were offered replacement gifts

  11. Damian Reece, The Telegraph's Head of Business, says the scale of fines awarded to banks will have an impact on their ability to lend money to consumers. UBS has swallowed a £940m fine after a global probe revealed its staff orchestrated the manipulation of benchmark interest rates. The extent of the wrongdoing was highlighted in a series of emails released by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), which showed how traders and brokers conspired to rig the rate and referred to each other in congratulatory terms. In this video, Telegraph Head of Business Damian Reece explains the impact th
  12. Consumers will be given the power to request the data held on them by credit card and energy companies under new measures. Following a consultation, the government is expected to announce today (19 November) that it will look to legislate if firms fail to comply with the voluntary release of consumers’ electronic data. As part of the ‘midata’ programme, companies will be required to release the data they hold relating to a customer’s consumption or transactions in an electronic machine readable format on request.

  14. Savers rate supermarket banks above the high street lenders, and a quarter of us would bank with Amazon. Only one in ten consumers believe high street banks offer the best value for money when it comes to banking, compared to supermarkets who topped the list with 53pc of the public vote. High street banks may have more experience in the mortgage market, yet according to research carried out by uSwitch.com, some consumers would rather consider a brand with no experience in banking. One in four said they would be willing to bank with Amazon and one in ten would trust eBay with their finance
  15. 67/12 1 August 2012 Following an OFT investigation, Euroteam AS, Uncus AS, Ticket and Travel AS and the controlling director of these companies, Andreas Gyrre, have given undertakings to the High Court in relation to the unauthorised sale of tickets to the London Olympics. Under the terms of the undertakings, the traders have committed to provide a full refund to any of their customers who either do not receive their tickets or are refused entry to an event as the tickets supplied are not valid. People who are refused entry should ensure that they retain their tickets, or get a receipt
