  1. Well it seems it is going to be one of those days.Already i have put two threads out and it is only 8am. This one has caused by blood to boil.But everyone has a view,what is yours. Here is my answer to the news that - Fracking gets go-ahead in UK for first time since 2011 as North Yorkshire council approves plans. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/05/23/north-yorkshire-council-approves-fracking-plans/ Well everyone will know what i feel about Fracking just in case it is Lancashire next by fair means or foul. Our council and people have said No quite clearly.I am now catching

  6. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/apr/16/scrap-diesel-cars-for-cash-says-influential-committee-chairman This looks interesting. It looks like it might be means tested, but Theresa May has taken into consideration that Tony Blair's government pushed diesel vehicles -
  7. Hi there, hope this is in the right place. Background - we reserved a home with Taylor Wimpey in January 2015. On 14th Feb 2015, we completed a reservation checklist (of which we have a copy) where we went through the plans for the estate, this detailed drains, trees, sub stations, etc etc... We completed and moved in on 3rd July 2015. Very happy in our home, until 7th Jan this year, when the local bus company erected a temporary stop outside our kitchen window. This stop is less than 3 metres from the front of my house and right in front of my gate. We knew the road was to be a
  8. I'm writing on behalf of a good friend. She was looking for a residential property to rent in Chelmsford UK and found somewhere she liked. She immediately placed a £90 holding deposit on the property. At this point there was no written contract or receipt given but she does have proof she paid the money. This was approximately 15th October 2016. She was due to move in on 29th or 30th October and paid her £750 deposit and £750 first month's rent on 27th October. 2 hours after paying the £1500 she received news that changed her mind about renting this property and
  9. Plans to change the way fare dodging rail passengers are punished have been outlined by the Department for Transport (DfT). Ministers want to make the process simpler following accusations that it is unfair and lacks consistency. The proposals are in response to reports into the issue by independent watchdog Transport Focus (TF) which explained that, under current arrangements, train operators are "the victim, the investigators, the decision makers and the prosecutor". It described this as a "powerful position" and declared that "the whole system requires an overhaul".
  10. The taxman has been accused of using small businesses and the self-employed as a “cash cow” after unveiling plans for a “draconian” new penalty regime. HMRC has announced that millions of companies and individuals with an income of more than £10,000 will have to file quarterly tax returns online. Those that are late in supplying information about their tax affairs will face a new “penalty point system”, similar to that used for motorists. Four offences will result in an automatic fine, which could be as much as £100. Every additional point will result in a further fine.
  11. The war on mobile ads is heating up in the European Union as several mobile carriers are preparing to block these ads on their network. The latest carrier to be considering such a move is O2 UK. O2 & EE customers could soon be browsing the web free of adverts, as the company has admitted that it is in the “well advanced” stages of testing the technology that would see ads automatically blocked network wide. http://news.sky.com/story/1594267/mobile-network-plans-to-block-adverts-on-devices
  12. Over the weekend all newspapers carried reports that the Ministry of Justice would be seeking to change the law about 'internet trolls' and increasing the prison sentence from 6 months to 2 years. Below I have provided links to three documents from the Ministry of Justice. One is a news item that was released today together with a Fact Sheet and the second link is to the updated Impact Assessment (from July 2014) that was also released today. One change is to amend Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 so as to extend the time for prosecutions of offences. But the main ch
  13. A US firm is to extend its free mobile data, voice and text offering to the UK from July this year. FreedomPop will offer Sim cards that offer 200MB of data, 200 texts and 200 minutes of voice calls per month using the cellular network at no cost. The company already offers a similar free mobile data plan in the US to more than half a million users. The firm, which is backed by Skype founder Niklas Zennstom, says it will make money by selling extra services. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-32704051 US mobile phone provider FreedomPop is launching its Sim-only ser
  14. If a company gets planning permission to alter premises for retail and then starts a retail business on that land without carrying out the permission conditions for some years, and then goes on to rent the lease to someone as a going concern, knowing the work has been not been done, are they breaking the law, renting fraudulently, and who is ultimately responsible if the council are now demanding the work done by the new tenants? Is it the landlord or the tenant and could the tenant now get compensation for all the money paid out for the business and in rents from the landlord?
  15. House of Lords votes against Grayling’s plans to restrict judicial review access The justice secretary, Chris Grayling, has suffered a defeat in a key House of Lords vote on his plans to curtail access to judicial review, which would have made it harder to challenge government decisions in court.

  17. Hi, I recently contacted CFO Lending with regard to a total outstanding debt of £800 that i am struggling to repay. They have offered to let me pay the debt off over a period of four months which initailly i was pleased with. However these payments are still too high for me to afford and I think there may be a way for me to dispute these high payments? Does anyone have any experience of dealing with CFO Lending or any other options available to me? I am prepared to pay off the debt but only at comfortable payments that i can afford. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!
  18. Telemarketing companies that hound members of the public with unwanted calls could become easier to penalise under new government plans. Culture Secretary Maria Miller wants to allow the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) to take action against offending companies more easily. And the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) will consult on imposing heftier fines. The ICO received 120,310 complaints about "unsolicited marketing calls" between April and November last year http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26806116

  21. Chancellor George Osborne is set to announce plans to begin selling off the Government’s shares in Lloyds Banking Group. The Sunday Times reports Osborne will use his Mansion House speech on 19 June to reveal how much of the Government’s 39 per cent stake in the bank will be sold off. The Financial Times says the Treasury is considering a sale of 10 per cent of its stake before the end of the year. Estimates suggest the total stake is worth around £17bn. Under the plans, the public will be offered discounted Lloyds shares at the same price available to institutional investors such as pens
  22. Vince Cable has set out plans for a state bank that will bring billions of pounds of aid together in a “one stop shop” to help credit starved small businesses secure finance and address an over-reliance on high street banks. The Business Bank will manage £2.9bn worth of existing Government debt and equity schemes designed to ease access to finance, and deploy a further £1bn to boost areas such as non-bank lending channels, the business secretary said. “Inadequate access to finance for small and medium sized enterprises is one of the biggest risks to economic recovery. We need bold
  23. Online lender Wonga told MPs yesterday (16 January) that it has agreed a trial with a debt collection agency (DCA) that could see the business start to sell debt. Henry Raine, head of regulatory and public affairs at Wonga, confirmed to the committee of public accounts that the firm was considering selling debts to a DCA and that it has negotiated a trial with a company. He was in front of the committee to discuss the effectiveness of consumer credit regulation. When asked whether Wonga sells its debts to another party, he said “we haven’t traditionally done that but we are looking to”. R
  24. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-20803548 Was listening to the usual defensive utterances from the BBA who are saying some of the proposals are likely to ward off investors. They even have the nerve to try and say that any punitive measures would mean the banks having less to lend to businesses.!! As if they have even been bothering to give much needed cash to struggling businesses. In fact even the Government backed 80% guarantee EFG program saw the greedy banks forcing directors to sign personal guarantees and forfeit rights under CCA !!
