    • Bankfodder thanks for your help and yes i am about 90 miles from the garage i have requested the advert from autotrader  waiting for that back.  the dealer is a garage and taxi /minibus firm with a big unit i have taken screen shots of the stock and sales on ebay  and cars for sale on autotrader i have a reciept for my purchase signed etc  so yes i know 30 days is up but like you said its the enforcing it may be an issue but ill take it up to the highcourt as seen on tv lol 
    • Letter said 10 going across company, 2 from cad team. Only 2 have been scored. Essentially I would have stayed but now my position is untenable I feel, how could I go back after being mistreated like this. So yes, I want more compensation because its been an unfair process.    We don't have a union. 
    • So your desired outcome is "going, but more money"?   How many people are leaving in total? Has a union or reps agreed the redundancy terms?
    • I can certainly see why your son booked there.  The place has rave reviews from previous guests.  I'm surprised they are being so unprofessional with your son.   On their page under "Questions" they've written   Hi there! On the booking listing on the search page it says free cancellation, however when I go to book it says non refundable. Please can you confirm whether there is free cancellation on this for November bookings? Thanks!   Hello, Our cancellation policy is free cancellation upto 60 days before arrival. However if White Cross Bay has to close due to a second lockdown, we will re schedule your stay or offer a full refund.   I would suggest your son write to them through Booking.com's internal messaging system (Bookings > Owls House > Contact the property) and if they don't reply within 48 hours demand that Booking.com intervene.    N.B.  After a certain amount of time and/or a certain amount of bookings this internal messaging system ceases to work for old bookings so it might fail, but, hey, it's worth a try, it'll only take 10 minutes..   On their COVID Info. page Booking.com go on about bookings after 6 April, basically saying that after that date everyone knows about COVID and that travelling is a risk so it's a good idea to book places that offer free cancellation.  However, before that date - which would apply to your son - I'm pretty sure they had some scheme where you could cancel even if not normally allowed.  Sorry to be vague, but again this is worth looking into.   I suggest these things on a "belt & braces" basis. Obviously keep fighting to get the money back through the Halifax as others have suggested!
    • Typical defence that you would expect in response...reads rather like a witness statement than a defence.   Be wary of point 25 .....are you currently indebted to the agreement ?.....they are relying on CPR 16.6 to use a set off defence.   Andy

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

These is something wrong with our society when DCAs, Banks, MPs, Private Parking Companies etc. can do what they do.

Its amazing that my MP's food bill is £400 each month.

 

I wonder if she has the same meal each day each week.

 

I think I'll write and ask!

 

Also write to the place they do all there food shopping and ask them how they managed to keep all the prices the same for so long, and can we shop there too:D.

 

 

If all else fails, kick them where it hurts and SOD'EM;)

Mine only quaffs £300, yours must shop at M&S! although maybe North/South devide. Why oh why has mine got (And on a very quick glimpse) £55 for a mini grill under repairs and insurance?

 

I am soo looking forward to analysing this, maybe I'll get the full version of my Telegraph contact, lmao.

 

I have the email already sat in my inbox to reply to, the morra is devoted to it.

Mine seems more reasonable with food averaging around the £180 mark. However she pays £45 per month for a mobile phone tariff which includes 400 minutes and 50 texts... they must have seen her coming!

Mine has stopped claiming £300 food the minute Council tax entered the equasion? only ever claimed £200 since then? Why are the figures so bang on the penny...petty maybe.

 

I think mine has been relatively well behaved, aside from the obvious 'rounding up' and I'm not gonna chuck my toys out over that.

 

I am still gonna get everything available digested the 'morra.

 

Baz, get her on 3 lmao

Richard Ottoway, Croydon Sth, has steadfastly refused to tell us what he was spending our money on. No wonder, I'd be embarrassed too to be seen as such a terrible moneysaver!!!

 

Handsfree kit for car: £250! :shock:

Newspaper delivery: £50 Why am I paying for this exactly?

£240 on food, and yes, £40 on light bulbs. £50 on a toaster, and there is maintenance on something mysterious which contains belts and filters and is bloody expensive. Mortgage payment: £430. Repairs to roof, boiler, shower (every month or so, it would seem), and the list goes on and on...

 

Want to know the funny thing? Mr Ottoway's home from home is further away from Westminster than his constituency one, but then Bletchingey is a lot more attractive than Croydon... :rolleyes:

I was wrong about the mini grill, it was actually under 'other' but the initial claim was scribbled out, and went into another section....it was then scribbled out again with blacked-out bits because of an issue worth £5, she then altered the totals at the bottom pratically begging them not to forget the extra fiver.... hard times!

 

Still, so far in my MP may be an angel....I haven't clicked on the other 5 or 6 links yet.

 

As a complete aside, I find it interesting that I now know each 'high gloss' leaflet costs 5.6p lol (maybe the gloss finish makes the crap easier on the eye.....and helps it get into landfil quicker?) 44,000 is also too low for her constituency. 30,859 were delivered by RM at the chep rate of 4.8p making those leaflets cost 10.4p each which 90% of which (guess, and you should see the communal area here) goes unread. Plus you can't wipe your crease on the glossy stuff. :p

 

I guess the other 13,000 or so are hand dropped by my MP and workforce in the more affluent areas? Not having a go here, I'm just a trainspotter when it comes to this stuff! Still, it grates a bit even then...£4K to promote her still sucks.... and that is only one campaign.... I honestly thought that kind of stuff wasn't paid for by the taxpayer.

About Bl**&y time!!!

 

They keep saying its within the rules but they made the rules!!! I wonder how long the fraud squad and Inland Revenue would hold back if The General Medical Council or the Legal Bar wrote its own rules for whats allowable in an expense claim?

 

Its the house of commons... the house of common people... they are NOT above the law which includes the Inland Revenue!!!

 

(makes a mental note to write to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors..... :rolleyes::D)

£400 is the limit for monthly food allowances of what they're allowed to claim with no receipts:mad::eek:..........for all of those who've had to put in ex's claims for work, mucking around with recepits for pence, making sure everything is accurate to the last penny................they didn't need to produce recepits for anything less than £250!!!
