    • your statement only needs to be the barest of bare bullets points. don't go into things you don't need too. those are for IF the claimant requests a restart from day one as if you'd just received the claimform when you win the set aside.   your main point is you didn't have the chance to defend as you could not travel home due to the covid lockdown etc lay that on thick and this will be a walk in park. no judge would dare ignore the implications of not abiding by the lockdown IMHO the set aside is pretty much guaranteed.   don't forget to mention your recovery from the claimant of your N244 fee and that you approached them directly prior to issuing the N244 and they totally tried to fleece you by adding unlawful fake bailiff fees and requesting +£400 to set aside by mutual consent after you told them you were shielding.    
    • Thanks dx I'll start working on my statement tomorrow, I'll have to have it written down to stop me talking too much, including talking about Erics trousers. I will probably need some tips on how to do it as well as how to talk to the judge etc.
    • i seriously doubt he will go anywhere near as deep as that,...   all you needed to have done with the N244 is prove the 2 basic requirements detailed above.   each you have done.   can't see it failing. can't see the claimant requesting a further (start again) hearing either.   the judge has asked you both to liaise upon what documents need to be infront of him. that simply means you tell the fleecers what they must cough up with. you don't have to liaise further than that.   but in your statement make sure you outline that you have asked the claimant for them. dx    
    • Many thanks again Dx for an interesting explanation and bedtime read. Do you think the judge would be amenable to my telling him Erics trouser story over the telephone, in order to argue the point :0) I guess I better thik of some other ways of explaining it so I can get that point across to the judge. 
    • PoC - particulars of Claim..   Particulars of Claim: 1.The Defendant (D) is indebted to the Claimant (C) for a Parking Charge(s) issued to vehicle ( ) at St Johns Retail Park   2. The PCN details are 20/08/2015,   3. The PCN(s) was issued on private land owned or managed by C. The vehicle was parked in breach of the Terms on C's signs (the Contract), thus incurring the PCN(s) .   4. The driver agreed to pay within 28 days but did not. D is liable as the driver or keeper.    5.Despite requests, the PCN(s) is outstanding.   6.The Contract entitles C to damages.   7.AND THE CLAIMANT CLAIMS 1. £160 being the total of the PCN(s) and damages. 2. Interest at a rate of 8% per annum,  pursuant to s.69 of the county Courts Act 1984 from the date hereof at a daily rate of £0.04 until judgment or sooner payment. 3. Costs and court fees   .................   the important bit is:   4. The driver agreed to pay within 28 days but did not. D is liable as the driver or keeper.    no the registered keeper is NOT responsible under POFA 2015   as for planning permission...   so someone, even you, can pick a piece of land and put up signs and cameras on poles to capture peoples cars entering and leaving and charge then for doing so because they didn't read your sign without gaining the correct legal planning permission from the relevant council to do so???   bit like thee infamous ericsbrother trouser example....   I will give a commonly used example. A shop has a sign outside saying "50% off most items" and you go in, look around and choose a pair of trousers to try on. You ask the price and are told that they are not in the sale and you dont buy them.   Now the sign is inviting you to consider something, it doesnt force you to buy the trousers and it doesnt force the shopkeeper to sell them for half price. It is simply an invite to get you to consider the offer and agree terms if you want something.   Now in the case of parking, as the parking co doesnt own the land they have no right to demand you dont enter, you have been invited there to consider terms. If you dont like them then no contract is formed and at worst you are a trespasser and that is nothing to do with the parking co.   The parking co now wishing to impose the terms you have rejected or not considered (didnt read the sign m'lud) is like the shopkeeper insisting that you now buy the trousers because you looked at them or pay him for his costs for heat and light etc.   Both are equally silly and unenforceable but with the parking co you will have to argue the point because they have sued you whereas the shopkeeper has better ways of making money, namely selling stuff rather than chiselling money out of non customers.   the business model of the paring co's is based entirely around abuse of the law rather than parking management.

    • 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 notice that there was a thread back in April on these but who actualy smokes em?


I have been using e-cigs since jan and not had a "analogue" since then. My breathing and health has imrpved no end but I enjoy using my e-cig.


I currently "smoke" a titan 510 manual e-cig, I dont even have to roll the car window down now its getting cold. Im on the low nicotine content, usualy chocolate flavour!!!!!!!!!!!


As for not being tested well I can't see how normal cigs that have been tested can be safer - just look at the tar in a ciggy compared to a e-cig, to me its obvious. Yes I did worry about using them but recent clinical trials on nicotine hint that it can even be benefial in small doses???


The other main active ingredient in e-cigs has been used for years in are purifiers etc and has helped people with asthma etc alleviate their symptoms.


Well over to debate.

I picked up an Intellicig on Friday, really pleased with it and my 'normal' cigarette intake has been cut in half already.


You do feel like a bit of an idiot at first, but people are usually just curious about them.


Mine does tend to seep nicotine through the hole onto the lips or tongue which can be quite unpleasant, but overall, a really good purchase - the savings I have already made on cigarettes have paid for it in just 4 days.


The carts don't last as long as I would like though...and I am curious about these chocolate flavoured ones!

Don't throw those old carts out. Refill them with e-cig juice. The juice comes in a huge range of flavours including chocolate. Also comes in different nicotine strengths from 0mg up to 35mg. Depending on what your normal cigarette consumption was you can chose a strength that you feel comfortable with and then decrease it when you feel you're ready. Saves you a huge amount of money by using the juice instead of continually buying the carts.


Can't give a link but a general google search will bring up e-cig sellers that also have the juice. There is also a very good forum for e-cig users - well worth a read.
