    • 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.

HIGHWAY OF HEROES.

 

 

A country road upon which the bodies of repatriated soldiers begin their final journey could be renamed Highway of Heroes if a petition succeeds.

 

Hundreds of people regularly line the streets of Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire, to honour the soldiers brought to the town along the A3102 from RAF Lyneham.

 

The petition on the 10 Downing Street website, set up by ex-Para George Ryan who wants to re-christen the route, has more than 750 names.

 

The soldiers who fell in Iraq and Afghanistan are taken along the three-mile road into the town where residents, shopkeepers and members of the British Legion pay their respects.

 

The petition proposes to "rename the stretch of road (A3102) between RAF Lyneham and Wootton Bassett Highway of Heroes to honour all those of our military who have given their lives in the service of their country".

 

The idea originates from Canada, after a road between an Ontario air base and Toronto received the same title last year..

Done.

Excellent idea.

 

i dont get this country. we seem to be one of the few countries that dont really seem bothered about respecting our military, or honouring anything they have done.

It's about time it changed. If our government deem it necessary to send them in the first place, then they should bloody well deem it necessary to look after them when they come home ( alive or not ).

Sorry about the lecture folks, but this is a subject close to my heart, cus my Dad ( god bless him ) and his four brothers all fought in ww2, and apart from medals, got stuff all else for the honour.

Please note that although my advice is offered, you should consult your legal representative before taking ANY action.

 

 

have a nice day !!

I have no legal training and the advice I offer is a matter of support. Before you commit to any Legal action you are advised to contact a qualified legal practitioner.

------------------------------------------------

Bank charge successes:

Halifax - Full settlement incl interest.

HSBC - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 75% of claim.

RBS - Settlement, goodwill no admission of liability about 70% of claim.

2 ongoing claims for bank charges with HSBC with more to come. (Supreme Court ruling could have upset these claims) They did :mad:

PPI Successes

PPI 4 settlements on 9 loans. FOS involvement on 7 added on the 8 % Statutory interest another 30% to both.

2 claims settled in full with LV without FOS involvement.

2 claims settled in full with HSBC without FOS involvement

 

PPI Claims ongoing with:

Cap one Now with the FOS

Barclays. Paid up today 24/04/10 cheque received for over £4,500 and in the bank.

LTSB still have to decide on this as their SAR production was abysmal. Papers data mixed up documents missing etc

 

1 Complaint not upheld by FOS they said it was ICO issue. Complaint upheld by ICO. See this..

Post 290 from

***RBS PPI Claim Long fight but, WON***

 

Please do not PM me for advice as it may be sometime before I can respond.

 

Keep at them. Do not give way and do not accept all they tell you, they will delay and stall for as long as they can to prevent repaying you your mis-sold PPI.

Sorry, but I can't sign. It's not that I think the military do not deserve such a thing, merely that it sounds so, well, American and superficial.

 

We already have a central memorial to which we pay tribute to those who have died - the war memorial in London. We also have many such memorials around the country.

 

I think it would be far more fitting to ensure the covenant between the military and government is respected - namely by the government. Military training is being sold of to private consortiums at huge cost and detriment to the military - effectively privatisation in the name of "bringing jobs" to south wales (which it wont) and of cost effectiveness (which it isn't - the cost of the deal has been far exceeded before anything has even been signed).

 

More decisive decisions and petitions need to be made than the renaming of a road in my view.

I think enough is enough, I am heartily sick of seing our boys being brought back draped in the union jack...most of them young men and theyve given thier lives...what for? I think it is time to cut our losses.....withdraw after nepalming all the poppy fields and let the Afghans and Iraqis get on with it...obviously they dont want our help why force it on them?

 

I know that is probably a very simplistic view but how many more of our young boys must die and to what end..its not like we are still winning hearts and minds over there?

Advice given is my opinion only, I am not a legal or financial expert (far from it).

Bump it up, and for god's sake, PLEASE get a petition going to give troops the equipment they need to do the job asked of them.

 

That way, we may not need to have a road to carry so many casualties.

 

One of my best friends is serving in Afghanistan. If he's coming home in a body bag, I'd rather it be due to him doing his job than because the vehicle he was traveling in was inadequate against the weapons used over there.

 

That is his own sentiment. He actually said last week to his family and me:

"I'd rather be shot defending people from d***heads than be blown up by those d***heads [Labour / MOD / government] who can't be arsed buying some decent APCs"
