  1. I have asked Aviva to start a pension, taken out in 1987, next month. They say that my signature has changed. They insist that I get a signature form witnessed by someone who is likely to charge me for the privilege (accountant, solicitor, etc). I am a qualified accountant. They have corresponded with me since 1987. I do not believe that this is actually required - they are just trying to avoid undertaking an electronic data check at their cost (£10 or so). They also want to see a passport or 2 part driving licence - even though the DVLA has instructed us all to destroy the paper l
  2. After taking my car to be MOT'd Friday 27/09/2013 in Maidstone, Kent. I was told the car had failed its MOT.

They have said If i get an engineers report that the slave cylinder is not leaking they will refund, but I just want to know my rights in case they get problematic. I have video recorded everything, including t
  4. Hi Wondering if anyone can help. My parents just had a cyclist bang into the side of their car at a roundabout due to the cyclist being in the wrong lane and cutting accross the first exit. He was not wearing a helmet and was completely in the wrong.... there were also witnesses to this. The cyclist fell onto the road and banged his head and was taken to the Hospital for a CTScan. The car was undamaged apart from a scratch on the paintwork so could have been driven away but instead the police chose to impound the car until the results of the Catscan were reported, this happene
  5.
