    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.
    • What's the default date? It should be on your Credit File
    • i point you to two threads whereby you'll see an explanation by andy (post 22 here) https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/410486-lowell-interim-charging-order-from-credit-card-debt-2009/?tab=comments#comment-4912902   and   https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/406428-remortgage-issue/   if yours says:    written notice of the disposition was given to XX Council ( - disposition = sold vis: disposed of) ..... notice means letter telling them it's been sold -    doesn't say it must be paid or settled BEFORE disposition..   that's the way i read it.

    • 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

I'm flying to Ireland on Thursday, sadly through Ryanair cos it cost £20 for the return trip (going into Dublin from Gatwick south terminal).

 

Does anyone have any tips and advice as I haven't flown for ages... I've got a 16 inch trolley case I am using as cabin luggage only - didn't want to chance having to pay another £30 odd with an 18 inch as I've heard some of those can be 'oversize'.

 

I'm going for four nights so only taking change of tops and a skirt - what do I do about washing stuff, do I need to carry it in a plastic bag and then put it in the luggage when I board?

 

I'm going on a crochet weekend course so will have the course details and my hooks and stuff packed in a special storage box, and carry the course details with me incase I get searched. I'll have my small netbook with me in the case and will just have the one bag.

 

Tips welcome for an inexperienced flyer - last time I flew was to Italy on a rugby trip about five years ago and that was in a group. Going solo this time.

Forgot to mention already booked online for both legs of the journey and got the printouts with my passport in the side zipped part of the case.

All I can tell you SG is that all liquids must be in a see through bag (perfumes, aerosols etc). Have this bag separate when your case goes through x-ray. That way, they won't be intrusive by rummaging through your case.


 

 

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

Yep as SOD'EM says you need to put all your bibs and bops in plastic bag, they sell these just outside they charge you £1.00 :mad:before you go through i would grab one

because even though you may have them in a placcy bag on past experiance well me mate anyway she always gets clobberd :D had to go back out and get one.

I've already got one of those plastic bags, in fact got them in loads of sizes... I got mine from a colleague who recently came back from New York, they gave me the one BA used so that should be okay. I've got mini sizes of shampoo, deodorant (taking a small roll on rather than aerosol) and toothpaste in clear containers.

 

I've been told that some 18 inch cases have been deemed too big so thats why I got a 16 inch one, got three teeshirts, one skirt, undies and my needlework stuff. Should be okay...

With ryanair, when they say 1 piece of carry on luggage, they mean 1 PIECE. Your handbag will be counted as that 1 Piece - so pack your handbag inside your carry-on. Also, if you buy anything in duty free and have that in a separate carrier bag, they will count that as I PIECE. For every piece of carry on above the 1 you're allowed they will charge you £30. Please be warned. I have been stung so many times with this so called cheap airline that I wouldn't fly with them if they paid ME.:mad: Good Luck:)

Thanks Cassie, I am not intending to get anything duty free at the airport - and I will have everything in the one case. I have a small handbag I can pack which takes everything and will be wearing a jacket with roomy pockets.

 

I'm checking with the lady who runs the course if anyone has had trouble bringing crochet hooks on the trip - but they aren't prohibited and are all packed in a sturdy box. She has had people come from America and England with stuff in their hand luggage.

Top tips for safe flying

 

1. Sit at the back of the plane (you never hear of them reversing into a mountain)

 

2. Find out under which seat the black box flight recorder is and strap yourself to it (They always find that bugger)

I do not think they will let you take your crochet needles on in hand luggage. I had a small metal nail file at the bottom of my handbag that I hadn't noticed was there and Ryanair confiscated it.

Oh and don't wear lace up boots/shoes if you can help it... they make you take footwear off to search it now..

 

Spam. :)

Any advice I offer is probably useless but there may be little nuggets of gold in there somewhere......If I have helped in any way, be it with knowledge or by giving your chuckle muscle some exercise please feel free to tip my scales....:-D

 

 

They say money talks......mine just keeps saying "Goodbye"
