  4. Those nice people at Snapper TV have made a documentary for the BBC, about local authorities and their use of CCTV for apparent violations by the unwary public and the revenue made from it. ... 'They claim they do it to keep the traffic flowing smoother. But private emails obtained by Panorama reveal a different story, with officials congratulating each other on the number of tickets issued: 'Another record month, guys. Well done,' says one. The programme visits the box junction where the council fines so many drivers - 29,000 last year alone;... A link to the programme. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b02xcnpr
  5. Mentally ill woman 'given doorstep loans by Provident Financial Investigators went undercover at Provident Financial, which has 1.8million customers, and say they found cases of lending that appeared to breach industry guidelines. They interviewed the mother of the unnamed woman, who requires constant care but was allegedly given loans totalling several thousand pounds over a number of years. The investigation, carried out by the BBC’s Panorama programme, claims one of the company’s agents acknowledged that the schizophrenic woman was ‘not all there’. The programme also claims to show a Provident seller calling on another customer and accepting that she doesn’t think the woman can look after herself. The company said: ‘Provident has strict policies to prevent loans being advanced to anyone it believes does not have the mental capacity to understand the terms of the loan. ‘However, with 1.8million customers we recognise that we will not always get it right and if we make a mistake we work hard to put matters right.’ Panorama – Undercover: Debt on the Doorstep is on BBC1 at 8.30pm tonight. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2211006/Mentally-ill-woman-given-doorstep-loans-Britains-biggest-lenders-despite-knowing-schizophrenic.html
  6. Undercover: Debt on the Doorstep Duration: 30 minutes The economy is showing few signs of recovery, but one area of business is doing well: door-to-door loans. Panorama investigates the debt business, a world of cash on the doorstep and high interest rates. We go undercover to reveal the tactics of the trade: the real costs of a loan and the techniques which mean that some customers may never clear their debt. And we find victims - the vulnerable and mentally ill, who are sold loans in apparent breach of industry guidelines.
  7. Not specifically about payday loan companies but about door to door loans. Are these essentially individual loan sharks or something different? Here is the info about the programme which is on BBC1 tonight at 8.30: The economy is showing few signs of recovery, but one area of business is thriving in the current environment - door-to-door loans. Richard Bilton goes undercover to learn the tactics of the trade and the techniques that mean some customers may never pay off their high-interest debts
  8. Was very shocking report. I didnt know that Poland had such a problem,although I have seen the graffiti when been there I didnt know what the slogans meant. The Ukraine report was equally damning and I was shocked to see the videos.I have never seen any examples of this race hate in either Kiev or Kharkiv and how the Police chief said there was no problems when he was interviewed was typical. I think these things in Ukraine are only seen inside stadiums. I have been in Moscow twice and seen running battles with the police and skinheads ...it is a big problem there which is not restricted to football. In fact there are big divisions between North and South,the South being with large Muslim populations and terorist links by factions from the South regions which have made a number of attacks on Moscow in the last few years. It is a war in which Putin has tried to win without much success. I think many people in UK whatever ethnic origin or background will think twice about going to watch any of these games after seeing Panorama. And who can blame them ?
