  1. I Phoned up to change the seats on the flight on Friday night, only to find out the hotel we'd booked into 16 months ago (and requested special assistance a few days later because they were not open when the holiday was booked) is not suitable for those with walking difficulties (nor is anywhere in cap salou apparently) I was open about my disability from the first call and that of my children but wasn't told about the resort or hotel (I'd asked for 14 nights all inclusive but left the resort open to Thomas Cook while explaning I have sever walkin
  2. I booked disability assistance in Stansted Airport. The driver and his colleague of the disability vehicle taking disabled passengers from the plane to the airport building acted unprofessional and reckless. When the car started driving (and speeding!), the driver left the door opened right next to where an elderly passenger sat, she was petrified. After some commotion the car stopped and they closed the door. Then the car started speeding again and then suddenly braked throwing me to the floor, I was wearing a spinal brace at the time. They were saying they drove into a chain that was s
  3. http://www.itv.com/news/border/2017-04-12/thousands-lose-cars-due-to-change-in-disability-benefits/ However, many of these people will have received Lifetime awards on the old DLA system !! It makes no sense at all.
  4. “The tax take for this group of people has fallen by £1 billion since HMRC set up its dedicated unit. At the same time, income tax paid by everyone else has risen by £23 billion. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/fatcats-pay-1billion-less-tax-9700294 http://www.taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/2017/01/27/public-accounts-committee-says-hmrcs-lack-of-transparency-has-eroded-public-trust-in-a-fair-tax-system/ http://www.rossmartin.co.uk/sme-tax-news/809-mps-initiate-key-changes-in-hmrc https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/public-accounts-comm
  5. Hi I am just looking for some definitive answers regarding eligibility for SSG as I am being given conflicting info I am not one of the 2016 cohort so the old rules apply - I started my course in 2014 In march i was told that provided that i could demonstrate Housing benefit 3 weeks into my course this would qualify me for the SSG however SFE are now saying that this is not sufficient and I need to fulfil another criteria. They are claiming that the documents I provided are out of date although I supplied the link below dated Sept 2016. However a page on my SFE page says HB is a
  6. I have been given a ticket for parking in a special enforcement area adjacent to a dropped footway, I appealed on the grounds that the area leads to a woodland area with no foot path or entry, there is a drive next to the dropped footway which leads to nowhere, I cannot see for the life of me why anyone would walk there, push a pram there or make a delivery, the appeal was rejected. I didn't receive the notice of rejection, and phoned and e-mailed three times to confirm this, I have now received the notice of rejection but would like to appeal to the independe
  7. Not having watched the special where Ms Merritt was evicted along with her 11 year old daughter, it seems Havering Borough Council were not happy bunnies. In this bulletin from 26/10/2015 OFCOM dismissed a complaint from HBC. http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/enforcement/broadcast-bulletins/obb291/ (click the link at the bottom) The report is at page 17
  8. On Tuesday this week on C5 is a new special that the title states looks to be worthwhile watching. This will be worth watching as it appears the crew from Cant pay we'll take it away will feature in this as well. This is a small series so stick on in your diary to watch... Tuesday @ 21:00
  9. I recently sold a phone RM special insured delivery through amazon which arrived damaged (the phones sim tray was crushed in transit), the person who bought it off me sent it back without the original packaging as they chucked it away. RM are refusing to compensate me either for the value of the phone, (150) or the repair of the phone (50) as I can not provide the original packing. Is there anything I can do?
  10. Hi, Can anyone give me some advice. I sent a SAR to MBNA it came back with the no PPI box ticked. There are lots of Late fees £25 and Over Limit Fees £25 amounting in total to around £600. There is also Special Cash Interest (I have been told this is an interest charged when gambling) is that the case and are any or all of these charges reclaimable and is there a calculator to work out the interest. Thanks
  11. I thought this was amusing.. If you are a senior you will understand this one. If you deal with seniors, this should help you understand them a little better, And if you are not a senior yet........ God willing, someday you will be. The 2.99 Special We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the 'Seniors Special' was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for £2.99. 'Sounds good,' my wife said, 'But I don't want the eggs.' 'Then, I'll have to charge you £3.49 because you're ordering a la carte,' the waitress warned her. 'You mean I'd hav
  12. Hi I wonder if you can help, I think this forum is amazing and I would appreciate some advice please. Can a Respondent use the Henderson and Henderson argument of abuse of process (ie: you can't get a second bite of the cherry) if the claim was referred to before but only at a preliminary hearing and not in the ET1 but as a head of loss on the Schedule of Loss and was dismissed during the case management orders? (That claim went to a full hearing and I won the right to receive occupational sick pay instead of SSP.) At that first preliminary hearing the Judge told me to "put a claim i
  13. Hi. Me and my husband have been caring for my nephew for over 5 years. We claim housing benefit & when my nephew first came to live with us we obviously declared the family & friends allowance we were recieving to the housing benefit department which has always shown as 'charitable payments' on our decision notices. In oct 2011 we were granted a special guardianship order for him & the allowance changed from family & friends to sgo allowance. Information I came across last week has led me to believe that the council shouldn't be using the sgo allowance as income when
  14. I have a joint mortgage with Kensington (we went with non high street as my wife had an old default from a mobile phone company when someone stole her phone to call Nigeria and she negotiated a reduced amount to pay with the company and ended up with a default without being told she would by negotiating the reduced amount. .. but that's another story). we have been in the house for 6 months, no problems with payments or anything like that. One of our original mortgage conditions when we purchased the house was: "The Borrower(s) undertake to carry out the following wo
  15. Over two and a half years ago I contacted the CSA to request that my sons father be assessed and asked to pay Child support. To cut this long and frustrating story very short, the CSA made an administrative error, which they have admitted to, which meant that I lost out on payments from Jan 2011 until Dec 2012. In Dec the admitted to this and also paid me £50 compensation for the delay in dealing with my complaint. After my ex had paid six months of CS payments I asked to be referred to the Special Payments Department (on the advice of the Complaints Resolution deparment) to resolve the financ

  19. The Respondent's Solicitor has written to me asking how much I would consider settling for. Hearing's scheduled for Christmas time. I have not yet completed a full schedule of loss and am going to take formal advice on it shortly. But based on a look of case law, I have a feel for what might be reasonable. Am I right in thinking that I don't have to disclose my financial expectations, or the schedule of loss until ordered to do so by the Tribunal? Also, in light of this, is it worth setting up a Special Needs Trust to protect any settlement I might receive? I am disabled and on benefits.
  20. Ok so ive had problems with council tax for years. It all stemmed from a girl i was living with and i breaking up and her leaving me with a huge pile of unpaid bills. since then i've pretty much been stuck in a vicious cycle of being unable to pick up one years council tax because im too busy paying bailiffs for the previous years. Ive recently started a new job, which will solve this situation, however, im a self employed contractor and have to pay for everything up front and claim it back from the company who are paying for my services. This poses a problem, as im on a DMP. The DMP
