    • Hi mackem67   This came out last Friday on gov.uk - hope it can help.  https://www.gov.uk/cma-cases/covid-19-cancellations-package-holidays   Be interesting to know if this actually works ✍️
    • Thanks D.   This has got me all of a dither   I feel very naive,  I thought common sense would rule the day!  CST LAW.pdf Smart Parking Rejection.pdf POPLA_Rejection.pdf
    • yes I have used a pay as you go card and my bank card. I have to sent them my banks statements to show them?  And when you say "to show them some financial reason " you mean my part-time job salary?  
    • Okay, that will suffice as a letter of rejection – although I don't understand why you have to write pages and pages of everything instead of simply making the point that you need to make. The same with your claim form. It's a great shame that you haven't actually stated your your main cause of action on your claim form which is that you asserted your statutory right to reject and that the dealer breach their statutory duty by not accepting the rejection and refusing to refund. This is a glaring omission and at some point you have to remedy it. If you haven't actually claimed that then you haven't given the dealer an opportunity to defend on that particular point – and of course by not bringing it up now, in principle you are not asking the court to address that point. You should amend the claim. Once you sue on the basis that you have asserted your right to reject and that the dealer refuses to comply, then you have pretty well 100% chance of winning. However, you are not exploiting this because you have not raised this in your particulars of claim. Strictly speaking you should amend the claim and then the dealer should have a further right to put in a defence. Of course I may have missed it in your nine page particulars of claim so please will you confirm that you did not raise the issue of rejection in your claim form.
    • Thanks - I got this off ABTA website   If there are significant changes to the main characteristics of the holiday that mean a significant change to the holiday as whole you are entitled to an offer of an alternative holiday, or a refund of your holiday cost. ABTA cannot determine what is and isn’t a significant change to your particular package holiday, however a general overview of what might be a significant change is below:   a change of resort;  a change of accommodation to that of a lower category and/or price;  a change of flight time or delay of flight of more than 12 hours (in respect of a 14-day duration.  A change of flight time less than 12 hours may still be regarded as a significant change in respect of a lesser duration) or involving a reduction in time spent at the resort which is significant in relation to the length of the holiday;  a change of airport that's inconvenient to you.  If the holiday or trip can’t actually be provided due to closures and limitations, then you have a right to a refund.   On Jet 2 T & C's it does say a change of accommodation is a minor change,   however,  I think that is subjective as what is minor to one person is possible significant to another and to me it is significant that the hotel is closed.   They have not even said what they would offer me so I agree I don't think we should pay any balance until this is at least discussed.   There are only 2 other hotels in Punta Prima which offer all inclusive and both get poorer reviews that the one we booked.   I know this won't make a difference to Jet2, however one of them is also 1.5km from the beach! Our booked accommodation was actually on the beach.   I am so frustrated with Jet 2 and unsure where to turn now.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Urgent - Government Proposals To Axe Dla And Aa

Claimants have just 100 days to prevent their DLA and AA being abolished.

 

A government green paper has revealed proposals to stop paying ‘disability benefits, for example, attendance allowance’’ and hand the cash over to social services instead.

 

Under the plan, current claimants would have their disability benefits converted to a ‘personal budget’ administered by local authorities and used to pay for services – not to spend as they wish.

 

Once the green paper consultation period ends in 100 days time, if an almighty row has not been raised, it is likely that both major political parties will see the lack of outrage as a green light to end both DLA and AA.

 

We’re looking for a minimum of 1,000 claimants, carers and support workers to join our campaign to save these benefits from being abolished.

 

Find out how you can take part from this link:

www.disney.go.com/mickey//disability-living-allowance-(dla)/dla-aa-cuts

 

We know that many people will take false comfort from the fact that, unlike AA, DLA is not specifically named as being for the axe. But if the government was planning only to abolish AA it is extremely unlikely that they would refer constantly throughout the green paper to ‘disability benefits’, a term which includes not just AA but also DLA.

 

Others will dismiss this as just another idle discussion document and our concerns as scare mongering.

 

But it’s much more than that.

 

36 meetings have already been organised around the country for people working in government and the caring professions to meet to be told about the setting up of a new National Care Service which would oversee the system. In addition, a stakeholders panel of more than 50 voluntary sector organisations, trades unions and academics has been established to offer advice to the government.

 

Some organisations and individuals, such as RNIB and welfare rights worker Neil Bateman writing for Community Care magazine, have already voiced their alarm.

 

But not every disability organisation is opposed to the proposals and some even agree with them.

 

In a press release, Disability Alliance has welcomed the publication of the green paper and said that it ‘looks forward to working alongside Government and all the other stakeholders in bringing these plans into fruition.’ They have even said that they agree that there is a case for ‘integrating disability benefits such as attendance allowance’ into the new system.

One thing everyone does seem to agree on is that huge cuts in public spending will have to take place in the next few years as a result of the credit crunch and global recession.

 

Political parties are desperately looking for the softest targets to be the victims of these cuts. Dismissing the green paper’s proposals as hot air and not worth worrying about could be the costliest mistake you ever make.

Hi All, in response to the initial email requesting 1000 signatures.

Look at the power of CAG

I received an email today, as follows;

 

Many thanks for joining the No More Benefits Cuts campaign.

 

We had an astonishing 5,245 people sign up in the first 24 hours of the campaign. I confess this has taken us rather by surprise: we thought it would take most of August just to get 1,000.

 

What happens next?

 

Over the coming months we'll be sending out an email each week asking you to do one thing in relation to the campaign. It might be writing to your MP, submitting a response to the green paper, contacting a local disability group and so on.

 

The emails will be sent out each Tuesday morning with the first one being sent on Tuesday 11 August.

 

As new people sign up to the campaign they will receive the same emails in the same order that you received them. Once the 100 days are up the emails will stop.

 

We've already been contacted by literally hundreds of people about the campaign and in truth it's already started without us. Lots of you have been posting on forums, contacting your MPs, writing to papers, emailing TV and radio programmes and generally making an enormous fuss.

 

Thanks again. And, until next Tuesday, please keep up the good work - you don't really need us at all.

 

Best regards,

 

Steve Donnison

I'd like to add my warm thanks also, to all that contributed.

Kind regards, Bill.

If you've read the information and feel that you don't agree with the proposals and want to be part of the campaign, then sign.

 

As for your claim, (I'm assuming it's for DLA) it will be processed as normal - it's only at the green paper stage so no decisions have been made yet, and DLA is not affected yet anyway in this paper. The main worry is if these proposals are put through for AA the same thing will happen to DLA.

 

Hope this helps.

Shocking. But then, what do we expect when carers get paid a measly £50 a week to put their lives on hold to care for someone through bad and worse times?

 

We are not even treated like second-class citizens. We get paid far less than any minimum wager, (and it's a taxable income!!!), get made to jump through hoops for that pittance, and some of us even have to beg the Job Centre to allow us to keep on being carers instead of looking for jobs as if we were just leeches keen to keep on sponging off the system! :mad: :mad: :mad:

Theres a definate pattern involved when it comes to caring. Nurses, police, ambulance, fire, air rescue, sea rescue, home care.........all get ****e wages BECAUSE they care.
