    • USA seems to be mainly Pfizer, and J & J think they also have Moderna.   this was March in NY Times   These Covid Vaccines Are Now in the U.S. Others May Be Coming. - The New York Times WWW.NYTIMES.COM Two vaccines are in wide use, a third is getting there, and there may soon be more alternatives. Here is a rundown. This was State of Virginia https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/content/uploads/sites/191/2021/03/VDH-Vaccine-flyer-compare-vaccines.pdf     UK Gov MHRA JCVI have relied on the US data with no special investigation of their own apparently  MHRA is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, so is there a conflict of interest?
    • Hi,    Here's the story, bit of a tricky one.    I purchased a 17 plate Ford Fiesta from Car Supermarket in Sept 2019 on a HP agreement with Startline.    2 days after the car was delivered, the engine management light came on. I called the dealer who advised me that the car still has manufacturers warranty. As my closest ford centre was over an hour away, the only time I could get there was in March 2020. They advised me that I needed a new catalytic converter but it had to be ordered. I drove my car home and was waiting for a call from them to get booked in after the part arrived. Well a week or so after my original appointment, we went into a COVID-19 lockdown. I did not actually hear from the garage again.    Sept 2020 comes around and now my car is out of warranty but my engine management light is still on. A recent diagnosis that ford asked me to do quoted the work at around £1k!   I am now trying to put a claim through Ford Goodwill as they looked at the car while it was still in warranty and it did not get repaired through no fault of my own. However, the ford centre I took it to has now closed and they can't find the record of my visit. So this is looking very unlikely to be successful.    I contacted the garage I purchased the car from and they are saying that it has been too long to do anything about it. But the fact that the light came on 2 days after I got the car tells me it was turned off before hand and the pre delivery inspection was not thorough. I have also contacted Startline who have told me they can't help me.    Furthermore, a car should not even need a new catalytic converter at 4 years old, let alone 2 years!    What do you guys suggest that I do? 
    • I find this all very concerning that contracts have been agreed without going through a process that ensures integrity is maintained.

I will not say good luck and you do not need to cross your fingers.

It is your money and they have taken it unlawfully, which is why they never go to court.

Stick to the timescales, do not allow yourself to be diverted and THEY WILL PAY

Any help just ask

Hi can anyone help i am doing my money claim now. I have cut and paste in this

is this what i put in the particulars of claim or am i on the wrong track. would appreciate help.

 

You have a contract with the defendant bank dated XXXX and which is conducted on their standard terms and conditions. You are claiming the return of money taken by the defendant in the way of charges over the last xx years plus the interest they have levied on those charges. The bank's charges are a disproportionate penalty and therefore unenforceable as they are contrary to common law. Further, as a disproportionate penalty they are invalid under the Unfair (Contracts) Terms Act 1977 s.4 and under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999. Para.8 and sch.2(1)(e). In the event that the charges are not a penalty then they are unreasonable within the meaning of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 s.15.

You have repeatedly asked the bank to justify their charges but they have declined to do so.
