  1. Apparently they can a bit of bad news for all that are claiming benefits especially those who are sick or disabled because Esther Mc vey is now Secretary of State for Work and Pensions – Rt Hon Esther McVey MP How is this even possible after what she and IDS did? for those who aren't familiar with the history, just some of the vile things http://blacktrianglecampaign.org/2018/01/11/backlash-over-terrible-insult-of-mcveys-dwp-appointment/
  2. My bank has just sent me an email with upcoming changes to my (and your account) which causes me great concern and wonder if other people have had the same. Basically it says: there will be no payments in/out of my account over the weekend. What really concerns me is they warn of a new financial system where TPP (third party providors) will offer to manage my bank account, they could ask for (that means WILL ask for) my banking login and password details. Of course the bank says, if I do this then it's nothing to do with them if my bank account goes to zero. I would think that n

  4. My son bought a music book as a gift from a Music Store that is a small chain of shops operating in the midlands and north-west. It was a gift but the recipient unfortunately already had that item. He returned the product within five days unopened with a receipt in the original packaging and asked for a full refund, as the item was clearly re-saleable. To his astonishment and despair, the manager of the shop made him feel like a criminal by suggesting that he could have simply bought the book to photocopy the music and return it. No refund was offered, no exchange, no credit note, nothing
  5. Me and my partner bought a Vauxhall Astra 1.9 Sri cdti 150bph on the 22nd September 2015 for £3500 from a second hand dealership. The car went off for a MOT before we got it and it came back with advisories which the dealership dealt with. We waited 2 weeks after payment before we actually got to drive it home. A Week later thick black smoke was coming out the exhaust, we immediately took it back to the dealership and they said they would sort it as it was still under warranty. (Swirl flaps needed replacing) they had our car for over a week and when it came back they hadn't done the job
  6. I went on the budget calculator about how the budget changes affect you. I know it doesn't take everything into account but I'm worried about how much worse off we are going to be as a family. I currently live in a private rented house with my husband and 3 daughters aged 16, 13 and 11. I receive HB but contribute 60% of the rent from my wages. I work 24 hours and earn around £10500 per year. My husband is on ESA CB SG, PIP Enhanced rate of both mobility and care. When I put in my salary on the calculator it says I'll be £1500 worse off but it asks for my husbands salary so I pu
  7. Hi all, and I thank you in advance of all advice given to me with a problem I have had with a repair I had done at a local Citroen Main Dealer Garage. I owned a Citroen C4 (59 plate), bought in August 2013. 3 month warranty as it was 2nd hand, even thought I thought I had 3 year cover - that's another story. I developed a faul with the car in late April 2014 and on th 7th of May took the Car to my local Citroen garage to sort out. They did a VHC - Vehicle Health Check/Diagnostics, and informed me that I needed a new EGR valve. I asked if it was a straightforward job, and the reply I

  9. Hi all. I am really hoping I can get some help and advice here. I really don't know where to turn and CAB havnt been that much help. I received a fine back in April for nonpayment of TV License. I was utterly stupid to stop paying it but I can't go back in time now. I was paying off £20 a fortnight but ended up not paying one time due to financial problems and thinking I would pay double the next fortnight. The time came and I couldn't. I received a letter from Swift saying if I didn't pay or make an arrangement, they would send people out.
  10. My son has been offered a temporary job starting from today until Friday of this week. We calculated that if he takes the job, due to travel costs, he will be £6.50 a week worse off. As the job is more than 16 hours, it means he will have to sign off. He was happy to sacrifice this money and after he finished work today he attempted to sign off. However, he received a reply that if he wants to sign off he has to attend the job centre tomorrow. This will have to be done before work tomorrow as he won't be able to get back to the job centre before it closes after he finishes work. In o
  11. At the moment I'm a stay at home mum with two children. I claim Income Support as a lone parent, Child Tax Credits, Council Tax Support, Housing Benefit and Child Benefit. I also receive Child Maintenance from the kids dad. My son is disabled and receives DLA at the Middle Rate for Personal Care so he also gets the disabled premium on the Child Tax Credits. I am subject to the Bedroom Tax so pay about £68 a month in rent and council tax. I had a work focused interview at the start of October and my adviser gave me a form to fill in to claim Carer's Allowance for my
  12. Surprised there's not a thread about this already. Last year, it was announced that there would be a £26k benefit cap for many people of working age. They've now gone one step further and introduced a benefit cap as a whole, which includes DLA and housing benefits. So, you're going to have 2 people with the same disabilities and care needs and due to the cap, only one will get DLA. How is that even legal? Will try to find more information this later.
  13. Hi there can anyone give advice on this please, my son put his car in for an MOT he told them that the car was a 4x4 so be careful if you do a brake test etc. The good news, all it needed was a bulb to pass the MOT, the bad news when he picked it up it lit up like a Christmas tree, ABS,CEL,4WD,SRS,Oil and seatbelt, no speedo so he does not know what speed he is doing, with all the warning lights on he turned around took it back to the garage, they started to mess around with it using diagnostic testing and he thinks they have made it worse as the guy phoned someone to ask advice. He needs the
  14. Hey, after nearly a year of having a green tint on my laptop screen(caused by a faulty cable, the screen and GPU are fine) I put in for a repair, howver, they were not able to fix it(as they could only find second hand parts) and sent it back. Its arrived and now the screen does not work at all, what are my rights with this? I phoned up and they offered to check the connections, but said that as the cable had problems in the first place, there's nothing they are willing to do.

  16. Hi, Im after some advice. I took my car in yesterday for a full service & repair. The repair i needed was a chirping noise which i assumed would be a pulley. He called me with the problem he had diagnosed and a price i was happy with and the work went ahead. I picked the car up and replacing the chirping was now a full blown squealing. He advised he had got some oil on the belt and that it would stop soon, I took this as he as because he is the professional. The squealing didn't get better it got a lot worse. 12 miles later the car judders and i pull over the belt is there b
  17. Just after a bit of advice really and where i stand on this issue. I recently sent my computer away for repair, there was absolutely nothing cosmetically wrong with it was just overheating which i was assured could be fixed as i have an extended warranty, was returned to me today via courier, opened the box to discover the top half of my computer was hanging on via a single wire and all my recovery / windows discs were smashed up. I refused to sign for the item as it was damaged and it was sent back. I have obviously contacted comet, i'm just not sure what will happen and who's fault
