  1. According to the Social Security Administration Act 1992 s116 (2) there are "strict" time limits on when DWP prosecutions are allowed to proceed.

  2. Hi all hope you are well. Today I received a letter from Northern Rail's Debt Recovery and Prosecutions Unit. It's regarding the end of July when I traveled from Hadfield to Glossop by train.

Last year saw the BBC prosecute over 180,000 people for using a TV without a valid licence. Lord Pearson, UKIP leader in the House of Lords is sponsoring a private members bill to decriminalise the non-payment of licence fee. A full copy of the news article can be read in the link below: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/bbc/10256679/TV-licence-offences-account-for-one-in-ten-UK-
  5. PPI was frequently (but not wholly) sold to parties who had little or no use for it. The fact that massive levels of dishonesty were being perpetrated was ignored for many years - banks profits and bankers' bonuses were engorged as a result. The PPI scandal (mis-selling is not the correct word for a large part of it) was going on for too many years for it not to be know about at all levels of the banks. In allowing to go on there is at least an argument that there has been consipracy to defraud by senior management in conjuction with their own banks. This would not be an easy prosec
