MOD to review Armed Forces exemption from UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/mod-to-review-armed-forces-exemption-from-un-convention-on-the-rights-of-persons-with-disabilities
I'm not entirely sure this is the correct sub-forum so apologies if this needs to be moved. Quite a simple question, but one I couldn't find an answer for. I bought a ticket for a convention this month. When I purchased the ticket in November 2015 the dates of the event were Thursday - Sunday - 4 full days. The cost of tickets had increased by 43% over last year, but because they were advertising an additional 1.5 days for the event (last year it started at 1pm on Friday), this seemed a reasonable increase. SEVEN months after ticket purchase and just two months before the event, the organisers slashed the length of the event back to Friday - Sunday instead. They offered no refund and instead just gave everyone a free picture worth £5. I want to know if I'm within my rights for a refund on the ticket based on this change of T&Cs? I'm pretty angry that the cost is now so high for essentially the same event and feel I've been duped into accepting the hugely inflated cost for the event. But essentially I'd like to know if I am entitled to a refund based on the fact I won't be getting exactly what I was sold? Thanks, Claire
Hi, I took out a home improvement loan with Barclays Partner Finance for £1000 in the UK, and the home improvement company caused £12000 of damage to my property and neighbour's properties. I filed a section 75 claim as well as a complaint to Zenith Home Improvements. Zenith did promise to rectify the problems, but have failed to deliver on those promises. Barclays seem to think that they are exempt from section 75, and have sent a DCA after me. In the middle of the dispute I emmigrated to Switzerland. I see that the Lugano convention states that Barclays are obliged to use the Swiss courts if they wish to enforce their alleged debt. However, I would like to know if I sue them and Zenith jointly for the damages, do I have to file in a Swiss court or UK court? TIA Banjo
