    • The first thing is to let the surgery know that you didn't enter your car registrtaion when you visited and ask them to confirm to Euro that you were a patient on that day and Euro should cancel. The quicker you do that before matters escalate, the more lkely that they will cancel. You could suggest that  they put up a sign reminding drivers to enter their vrm. thank you for posting the whole of the PCN which confirms that it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4 Section 9 in two ways. [2][e] of S9 states (e)state that the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver and invite the keeper— (i)to pay the unpaid parking charges; Your PCN does not. All it does is to ask the driver to pay which is not enough. In addition under [2][a] the PCN should specify the period of parking. Instead it gives the arrival and departure times of the car as it passes the ANPR cameras which is not the same. That means that you as keeper are not liable to pay the PCN only the driver is now liable. Courts do not accept that the keeper and the driver are the same person so proving who was driving will be difficult for Euro.
    • Pro peace/anti war/anti-atrocity marches which included many Jewish protestors carrying banners (as previously linked)  decrying the atrocities of Israel and the IDF such as 'Not in my name' 'Never again to ANY people'   Although a very small handful of unconscionable Hamas supporters were among the many MANY thousands of pro peace protestors, even they displayed nothing like the hatred and violence demonstrated by the 100 or so far right rabble who attacked police, tried to attack the peaceful protestors and then attempted to violently breach the cenotaph itself. The pro peace/end atrocities in Palestine protests have remained largely peaceful despite ongoing atrocities by the state of Israel and the IDF.   Even today, unarmed starving civilians in a supposedly safe camp in Gaza were murdered by shelling and bombing from afar by Israeli forces, while violent Israeli settlers have forcefully deposed more Palestians from their homes and lands on the west bank with the aide and support of Israeli military forces - just as the Israeli forces are forcibly relocating civilians in Gaza with even more horrors, atrocities and violence. These atrocities by the IDF in Gaza include starvation, forced relocation, bombing homes, health centers and refugee camps, denying food water and medical support, murdering journalists and health workers and the mass murder of women and children  .. are growing alarmingly and horribly reminiscent of some of the similar but wider scale utterly monstrous genocidal atrocities by Nazis on the Jewish people, which makes these actions by Israel and the IDF even more unconscionable and deplorable.  
    • Hi all, I was wondering what peoples thoughts / advice is for my following situation. Unfortunately, I have been caught speeding on the m6 - 56mph in a temporary 40 zone. I did not realise that the speed for the current stretch I was on, was reduced to a 40, I knew that some parts was bought down to 50mph but not 40. Ultimately, it is on own fault for not being more focused at the time.  I was wondering whether anyone caught doing similar speeds over the limit have been offered a speed awareness course. My letter states that the records show I have not met the criteria for a speed awareness course, which I feel is harsh given this is my first offence & the threshold for consideration is upto 53mph as stated below, our speed narrowly exceeded the limit and falls within the guidelines set out by the National Police Chief Council (NPCC) up to: 31 mph in a 20 mph area 42 mph in a 30 mph area 53 mph in a 40 mph area. Could I argue that my speedometer is not entirely accurate as such I should be considered in the 53mph bracket above and considered for a speed awareness course?  
    • Hi dx, Thanks for getting back to me about my queries. Why do think making token payments to my nationwide CC is the best approach?  Also, in general how often do nationwide go for CCJs themselves? Thanks again
    • Hi, She said the machine actually tells you how much you have to pay and you pay on your card. I've actually emailed evology who make the machine to ask for an explanation as to how this can happen - in essence it is 1min over! With regards to the 8 mins one, she is adamant the the machine said no charge when she left - her ex-boyfriend was with her in the car and he confirmed this so god knows what is going on. Worth chancing the set aside? With regards to G24, not done anything yet - not sure I want to alert them to the other address - should I just write and confirm the Scottish address with no reference to anything else? Thanks for your time FTMDave. T.

    • 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.

I have been informed by my parents that a Statutory Demand has apparently been hand delivered (dropped through the letter box) by representatives for Capquest. The SD is for my brother, who has never lived at the property, but gave several creditors that address as a UK base for his mail before moving to America in March 2006 to get married. He has been there ever since.


The SD refers to a judgement made against him in court (they give a claim number although interestingly fail to mention when the judgement took place) and give him the standard 18 days to apply to have it set aside.


He is tricky to get hold of, so I will attempt to deal with this for him. Is it possible to have the SD set aside by the owners of the property it was served on writing to the court and advising that he has never lived at the address, or would he need to do that (and prove it?). The debt is for around £1,500 and is not statute barred.


Incidentally, all his mail gets re-directed to me, and no court summons was ever received concerning the CCJ capquest refer to. After we've dealt with the SD, I'd like to apply for the CCJ to be set aside too, on the basis that a) he wasn't here, b) even if he was, no summons was issued, and c) the account was in dispute at the time anyway - I'd CCA'd them and heard nothing back.


I'd be really grateful if any of you could let me know the best way of dealing with this. I've not applied to set aside an SD before - is it just a case of applying to the court? Is there a form or any formal procedures (or charges) that need dealindg with?

Any mail you receive for your brother needs sending back as not known at this address.....is your brother going to appear in court to defend this ? What is the demand for ? (credit card ? loan ?).....what do the particulars say on the demand ? (don't be specific with the figures)...

This could be tricky as all the mail that is being sent to him is not being returned !!! they could possibly progress to bankruptcy as if they can show that they have made a reasonable attempt at serving the documents, then a process server can sign an affadavit in front of a judge and a judge can then approve substituted service and it will lead the way to bankruptcy, how far Capquest would take this is another question of course......

Surely a letter from the property owner confirming that he has never resided at that address and has not received any mail in connection with this or he would have returned it would be sufficient?


The main thing we're trying to do is stop bailiffs or whoever else showing up at an address the debtor doesn't reside at. Does anyone know the best way of doing that?

Things took an interesting turn today. I contacted the county court that Capquest said the judgement was made at. I gave them the claim number and they told me it didn't exist on their system - the lady tried three times until she told me that they had either "made it up" or "made a typo". I wouldn't think they'd make a typo on a document as serious as they kept on telling me it was, so the only other option was.... no - surely not.


So I phoned them. I never normally do for obvious reasons, but I was curious as to what they'd say when I told them that the claim didn't exist at the court, and therefore the SD was invalid. The lady on the other end just wanted the debtor's contact details and didn't give anything away until she slipped up and said it would be "referred back to the trace department".


Now - could it possible be that Capquest made up a claim number and issued a false SD as part of a desparate attempt to trace the debtor? I'm sure it's illegal but as we all know, DCAs often consider themselves above the law anyway. What's also interesting is that on the letter accompanying the SD, they quote the claim number but the letter doesn't say what date the judgement occured on (despite them writing "the judgement occured on ______" - there's just a blank space).


Do you think it's best to leave it?
