  1. Those comedy golden days of on the buses, love thy neighbour and in sickness and in health..
  2. He was supposed to have met a couple of weeks ago with the auditors with a view to working out if the £125 level of court costs could be justified in terms of Council Tax (administration and Enforcement) Regulation 34(5) & (7). He has been posting other material on his Taxpayers Against Poverty website so presumably they have not incarcerated him but have they got to him to keep him quiet on this matter?
  3. Not that long ago, when there were uprisings in many countries such as Egypt Libya and Syria, some politicians were getting carried away, saying it was a Middle East spring, with people wanting democracy and westernised freedoms. I can remember Cameron and Sarkozy making speeches in Tripoli, talking about how UK and France had helped the lion spirit of Libyans prevail over Gaddafi. If the current state of affairs is part of this spring uprising, it worked out well didn't it ! This all starts with good intentions, but when you don't know who you are helping with regime change, it is a bit risky. Cameron asked parliament to sanction UK helping anti Assad forces and if this had gone ahead, we may have accidentally helped ISIS. Obamas policy has been to use drones wherever possible and to not put US armed forces in harms way. This is down to the number of casualties incurred in Afghanistan and Iraq. I don't blame him for this, as i don't see why the US has to act as worlds Policeman. But the number of drone strikes may not be sensible, as it may just lead to terrorists spreading their bases, rather than be concentrated. Personally i think Corbyn talks good sense in saying that military actions have not worked and the only way forward is to talk to the people willing to take part in peaceful settlements. The UN, Arab league and African nations must be the ones to be leading on this. The current position in Iraq, Libya, Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East and North Africa cannot continue for too much longer.
  4. Cerb hasnt been posting anyone know why?
  5. After receiving Parking "fines" from private parking companies in the past (2011) I had frequently visited this site among others, where the advice was a resounding "IGNORE" I took said advice, and after around 5 letters from each, I heard nothing more from these PPCs, the "IGNORE" option certainly worked. Since then I'd been much more careful about parking, and as such haven't received any 'fines', Until now. I have just received a letter through the post from a company called smart parking demanding £40 for parking overnight (clearly not causing any loss to the company) in a parking space. I was going to completely ignore this letter as done in the past, but upon visiting here again it seems advice has changed to "Don't ignore" Can anyone explain why I can't just ignore this as usual? Surely the law hasn't changed to allow private companies to issue fines now?
  6. Today I parked in a car park formally 'mananaged' by PCM. I some how 'parked after the expired time on the p &d ticket ' by 7mins, which resulted in a parking charge notice. This notice is from UK Parking ltd, no address, only pay by post to pcn parking .... I can pay online to....... paymypcn.net. UK Parking ltd are on the BPA approved operator list but no link to a website. PCM (UK) LTDs website link no longer works. Have the notorious clampers folded? Then come back 5mins later?
  7. 5 years ago was called into branch and was talked into converting my credit card balance which was at the time £9,800 into a bank loan, at that time i was classed as self employed and 63 years old without saying a single word about ppi they tried to sneak it in , i spotted it the next day and duly cancelled the ppi out of the blue i get a letter telling me that i would not get all the benefits on offer with ppi on my 65th birthday relating to my credit card which i had been talked into converting to a bank loan, i had been paying ppi for over 10 years on the card without knowing i had it, to cut a long story short i put a claim in for this missold ppi on my credit card they have done nothing but lie and used delaying tactics since at last they admit it was misold and they say they sent a letter out on the 18th march still not got it despite at least 6 calls to the help line am being ignored by all i speak to and send emails to managed at last to get the man on the help line to dictate this letter over the phone was told that they had put 173 pounds into my account as due to the passage of time they have no record of this credit card and they consider this to be a fair offer still not had this in writing but told him over the phone where he could stick his offer am still awaiting anything in writing where do i go from here
  8. Hi , Last July I received a county court claim from nationwide. I returned the AOS to my local court, but can't remember if I actually defended it. I had spoken to nationwide on the phone and told them I didn't recognise the account no. they said it was an internal ref no. and they where not allowed to put the actual credit card no. sounded strange at the time. Anyway I never heard any more, did a search online that cost £4 and it just showed a ccj that I knew about, also nationwide, but not this smaller one for £7500. Is there a way to check what happened, did they withdraw the claim, I thought they would have won by default. I'm thinking something went wrong their end, because I received other county court claims with actual card no. on them. It's nice to win this easy, but interested to know what happened.
  9. This video was uploaded in 2007. In the video, it is said to expect to see this innovation taking off. It is now six ears since this video and I wonder why it's taking so long to give us this economical, pollution free free, not to mention the minimal cost fuel? If anyone knows more about this, please tell.
  10. Hi, maybe I'm a bit thick (wife nodding in agreement), but I've tried searching for IND and drawn a blank. I know there are several threads about them (even contributed in a couple). So, any reason why these threads have gone? Is it that I am doing something wrong or have they been removed for a reason?
  11. Did anyone else have problems not being able to get onto the site at all? I kept getting: Fatal error: Memcache is not installed in [path]/includes/class_datastore.php on line 183 Couldn't find any announcement on t'web about it either. Assume all is fine and dandy now - but was it thee or t'was it me?
  12. See here. The outcry would resonate for decades!
