    • Thanks I just had a quick look.  Will study over the w/e My friend does have kids. But it's a really dysfunctional family.  They don't talk.   Many years ago he sold 2 property assets and gave them a lot of money (enough to buy homes w/o loans) .  They've done nothing for him in the last 2 decades. And he altered his will so his new partner gets everything; the kids nothing (more). The 1st form I glanced at - to be deputy - asks for family details.   If I give his kids details I suspect the authorities may say they should get the deputy job instead?  Then  they will steal the money and give nothing to his partner. I can get a copy of the medical assessment  - and get it translated.  If need be.   This has all happened very quickly.  He got sick. And that must have kick-started dementia.   He was fine to hold a detailed conversation 6months ago; now he cant
    • Hi I think the only way around this as he lacks capacity is someone is going to have to apply to be a deputies via the Courts as he has assets here in the UK and a UK Bank Account which will take time and there will possible be Court Fees to make the application. Also if the Lack of Capacity (Dementia) was diagnosed abroad the person applying for deputies will need that diagnosis and it will need to be translated legally for the UK Courts so possibly cost for this as well. Also for reference although you were assisting them before the lack of capacity and had authority to act on there behalf that no longer stands due to there diagnosis of Dementia therefore Lack of Capacity so you no longer have any authority legally to act on there behalf unless the below is actioned or someone has Power of Attorney for that individual (which was setup before the Lack of Capacity) Have a wee look at these links: https://www.gov.uk/become-deputy https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/topics/private-client/mental-capacity-international-aspects#:~:text=You might need to make,act within the foreign jurisdiction https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/office-of-the-public-guardian I have got to ask with the Dementia diagnoses are you 100% sure the diagnosis states they Lack Capacity as not everyone that gets a Dementia diagnoses may lack capacity initially. Now the Office of the Public Guardian link above you could also consider giving them a call just to give them a brief on this situation and get there advice on what documents etc are needed for deputies to be appointed as the person with Lack of Capacity is abroad.

    • 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.

Fats' Barber Shop. Little Catlipocia. 1927.

 

Mayor Catlipoca, leader of Little Catlipocia, reclines in his seat, a hot flannel draped over his face as Fats himself works at the hair. There is a polite cough from behind the Mayor, and a hand reaches up lazily to grasp Fats’ wrist.

"That’s short enough."

The barber gives a nod, then steps back. The great leather seat, flecked here and there with old blood from ancient feuds swings ponderously around to face the back of the shop and the small crowd that has gathered there. A hand raises up and removes the flannel, and Mayor Catlipoca stares at the most eminent members of the community.

 

tez.gif

"My fellow citizens of Little Catlipocia," he begins. "We have a problem. For some time now, the Mafia have been trying to take this town. They tried corruption, and we resisted. They tried bribery, and we threw them out. They tried to attack us, and we beat them down." The Mayor's voice grows deeper, and a menace creeps into his tone. "But now," he snarls. "Now they're trying something else. Something worse than ordinary decent corruption. Worse than bribery. And much, much worse than a straight-up dust up."

There is a long pause. The air is tense with expectation.

"It is my duty to inform you all that we got us a rat in town. Actually, we got three of them."

 

The townsfolk, a close-knit community who have known each other for years, exchange glances.

 

"Now I have known you all for a year or two," continues Mayor Catlipoca, "and I don't want to believe that any of you is capable of betraying this community. So I'm gonna tell you all straight, if I knew who these wise guys were they'd be swinging from the lamp-post on 24th street by now. But I don't. I also don't know whether these guys have been turned by the Mafia, or whether they was part of them from the very start. You see-" Mayor Catlipoca pushes himself up out of the barber's chair with a grunt, then stands before the crowd with his eyes flaming, "there's a lot of stuff I don't know. But I'll tell you what I do know. I know that when we first came here we was nothing. We built this community from the ground up, and no cheap-skate, gin-joint, piece-hugging Mafia is going to push us out. So here's what we are going to do. I want you all to go back out into that community what we built and talk to each other, watch each other, and watch over each other. I want to know who has been acting suspicious and who ain't, and then I want you each to come back to Fats' and give me a name. One name each mind, and I don't want no joke-cracking wise-guy voting for himself. The name I hear the most gets whacked. If I hear two or more names the same number of times, the first one to get that many votes gets whacked."

 

Mayor Catlipoca glances over at the clock on Fats' wall, then gives a grim nod.

"Fats. What day is it today?"

"Monday, boss," replies the Barber.

Mayor Catlipoca nods again. "Monday," he says to himself. Then he looks up at the crowd once more. "Ok you guys. The sooner you give me the votes, the better. Any wise-guy who ain't come and seen me by 8pm Friday will be assumed to be guilty either of being one of the Mafia, or of not wanting to hunt them, so will also get whacked. Now, get back out there and find me a traitor."

 

m-barber.gif

The crowd files out of the barber shop, and a stillness once more fills the air. Mayor Catlipoca stands before the leather chair, staring out of the window as the crowd disperses. For a time there is no sound, save for the clock ticking idly by and a fly smashing itself repeatedly against the window.

"You know who they is, boss?" asks Fats.

Mayor Catlipoca shakes his head. "Nope, Fats, I don't. But we got ourselves a loyal-Dick from the PD in there somewhere, plus a Doc. No idea who they are, but I sure hope they find the Mafia members before we have to lynch too many of our own people."

"What happens if all the folk get lynched, boss?"

Mayor Catlipoca eases himself back into the chair, then swings around to face the mirror. "Then, Fats," he shrugs, "we find ourselves a new career."

I wouldn't be so sure about gizmo111 being Mafia.

...It would be too obvious!

However, does anyone remember Robertxc saying that he would use his 'Super Mod Powers'??

...What was THAT all about then??...:confused:

Also, where would an 'honest' citizen get Hooch from GlasweJen

...If not from Maffia contacts??...:eek:

If it's Italian moonshine it's called 'Gotch Imperali - triple distilled Grappa.... very potent indeed.

 

I've had proper Irish moonshine and West Indian moonshine in my time... the West Indian moonshine was very sweet...

 

But as the Mafia are from Sicily it would be Lemoncello, left in the freezer to help the alcohol content along.

It depends in what direction you are trying to hide things... we obviously don't have money secrets... or do we?

 

How about hiding some drink around that nobody knows about?

 

Hmmmmmm, won't last long around here and there are other more important secrets;)

I was just using your reference to me as an example that you should never assume that what seems to be the obvious is in fact true. Although some will assume from isolated incidents, that they can evidence, that their assumptions are indeed correct, they will make fatal mistakes, as the full picture is not in their possesion.:)

we're Scottish you see, that means that we live on alcohol. You see normal people are 90% water but scots like myself and dearest Rab are 90% alcohol and because of this water is actually prohibited in Scotland and vodka comes from the tap. True story, anyone fancy smuggling some water up here for me?
