    • Late scramble for candidates  The Conservative Party, having been taken by surprise by its leader calling an election four months earlier than expected, still has to find 32 candidates in seats it currently holds, according to Michael Crick, who is keeping a tally.    If we assume that half of those will be lost, that means there are 16 safe Tory seats going for candidates favoured by party HQ, including, presumably, for Ric Holden, the Tory party chair, whose NW Durham seat has been abolished.        Lucy Allan, (CON) MP for Telford, who announced last year that she would be standing down, endorsed the Reform UK candidate in her seat – she was suspended as a Conservative for her last four days as an MP, until the dissolution of parliament on Thursday.     - Independent View from Westminster         and for the record ..   Rishi Sunak tells ITV “it’s just simply not true” that he is planning to leave the UK if he loses the election: “This is my home. I mean, my football team just got promoted back in the Premiership and I hope to be watching them for years to come in the Premier League”   Alongside all the tosh hes spinning on the defection trail - Sounds like hes looking to challenge Boris for his 'The Liar' award.
    • I have been in the motor trade for 35 years and have used hundreds of companies for a variety of repairs, only once have i had a major problem which i sorted out in County Court and won. I had a Vauxhall Insignia with an engine fault and advertised on 1st Choice car repairs site for a repair.  Jack, actually his alias Lee contacted us with a quote which we accepted. We transported the car to Unit 4/18 Burnt Mills Road North Benfleet SS129JX expecting its return within the promised 28 days. I have had every excuse you could possibly imagine, in the last 2 YEARS!! as to why the car is not repaired. Ecu faults, Ignition faults, Gearbox faults, Exhaust faults, Wiring chaffing faults, Communication faults, Cancer treatment delaying the repair, medical treatment in Turkey delaying the repair, Covid delaying the repair!! The man is a pathological liar and a fraud. He is now refusing to tell me where the car is and refusing me access to collect it. He is under investigation by trading standards dept Jasper Singh officer in the case but he just keeps getting away with it. Police say its a civil debt and not a criminal offence. 1st choice do not want to know, they refuse to do anything other than request the car be repaired directly by UK169 which is of course ignored I found recently all the posts on this site about Jack and his tactics but it was too late. To date i am £6200 out of pocket to this man and it appears the law is powerless to deal with dishonest rogues.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.
