    • Dx thank you so much for all of your help this year you really are an angel you are a credit to this site and I’m sure 1000’s more would agree with me in saying that you are a perfect example of why nobody should lose hope in humanity the way society is starting to look today. I really can’t find the words to express my gratitude for your gumption. I really can’t apart from say thank you from the bottom of my heart. 
    • In terms of the result, in hindsight, I think that the manifesto possibly went too far.  I think nationalisation of utilities, railways and royal mail is a good thing due to the fact privatisation sucks money out of the system, and things end up being paid for several times over.   I'm not sure nationalisation of BT was such a good thing.  Our network is pretty rubbish and leaving infrastructure projects to private companies is incoherent and inefficient, but that might have been a step too far.   I disagree it's all Corbyn's fault because the Tory's campaigned on a very simple message - "get brexit done".  In effect, their manifesto was very basic, and labour haemorrhaged leave voting labour voters so desperately tired of the process.  There was a hell of a lot of anti Corbyn propaganda from the word go.   I said after the referendum that the Tory's would be screwed because they wouldn't be able to deliver on any of the promises made, and for a long time it looked like that would be the case.  However, I never took into consideration the effect of Boris Johnson would have because he's a very good salesman... I would bet my life on us having a deal by the end of next year, and whatever we're left with will be championed as a massive success... I'm sick of it all if I'm honest.  I've had people banging on about remainers can all shit up now, they lost etc, as if they'd won the lottery.  But when I look at it, it was all still based on nonsense and misinformation, so I think we've all lost.   We're now left with a Tory government that has a huge majority so that they can push through anything they like.  Where's the democracy there?  Leavers wanted more democracy, but Johnson having played a blinder, has secured less democracy and conviced them they're all winners.  Coupled with their promise to "renegotiate the relationship between parliament and the courts" I'm concerned all these leave voters aren't really thinking clearly.  I've also said all along that brexit was about the elite in our country having more overall control, and now they have it.  They've even convinced working class labour voters that it's in their interest.  How did this happen?
    • Hi  Received another scrawled letter this morning ,    just to to inform you that I am still waiting for further instructions from the court.    Please would you you provide me with a copy of my letter, where you have stated In your letter to me , dated 29th November 2019 ,  that my recent letter states I do not wish for you to instruct an expert or make an independent report on our behalf?    You also state that in my letter I also do not want your input in the Instructions letter to the expert.  Please forward a copy of my letter stating this to you.    Please forward where the judge states that I had to forward a written draft letter to you, with the instructions for the expert? Also where it states I needed to send you a copy for you to check to see if it’s appropriate.    Please would you send me the copy of my letter, sent to yourself, where you state , I have written all the above instructions to yourself .    Guessing she’s not kept a copy of the letters she has sent me. Oh dear!     
    • How many more times!!!  It was a global recession!!  Seriously, I feel like I'm in a cuckoo clock.  Answer honestly, surely if the country had been bankrupted the price of food would have shot up and we wouldn't have been able to draw any money out from a cash point?  These things are what I would expect if we had gone under as a country.

Hi everyone, Im new to this. About a week ago I parked in an Aldi store and was there for just over an hour. It stated that I had been over the allocated time of an hour and a half and I have to pay £70 or pay £40 within 10 days and that would be that? Has anyone had any dealings with Private Eye and what should I do? Thanks:(

Spend some time on all the posts here, you will a lot of people in your situation who have ignored the invoices and eventually they just go away.

 

It has been stated that 70% of people pay up when they receive these invoices, fortunately, the other 30% are wise enough to realise that a private company can not impose a penalty on anyone!

 

Who is going to stop them? DVLA sell your details for £2.50 a time and make £6million a year from it, it certainly wont be them!!

I've spent most of the morning looking at the various posts and the common theme is IGNORE the letters and requests! So I will do that, I am just annoyed that this country lets these illegal businesses hassle people and the weaker ones will pay and not think twice. As for the DVLA what a waste of time they are!

Are you suggesting that I dont even aknowledge that I received the original letter?

Quote from Al27 that you have just read:

 

Parking Eye are well known scamsters

Use of the Search facility on here will result in oodles of threads and messages with regard Parking Eye and other Private Parking Companies (PPC's). They all operate with the same business model - scare you into paying.

 

The advice you receive for a Invoice from any of them is the same:

 

1. Ignore

2. Ignore

3. Goto 1

 

You (or the Registered Keeper) will receive a few letters from them initially, some perhaps with red borders and wording to worry you followed by a few more from a Debt Collection Agency threatening all manner of nasty things will happen to you (none of which will) then finaly, you might get a few more from some solicitor after which they will realise your not going to bite and move along to somebody else.

 

You parked in a Free Car Park - you overstayed by an alledged period of time and denyed somebody else use of that free space at a cost of nothing therefore the potential loss to the landowner/operator was nothing. Under contract law they can only claim their losses which as we can see is - nothing !

 

Their claim for £70 or whatever they try it on for is meaningless. Aside from that the alledged contract was with the driver of the vehicle, the only means they have of contacting anybody to try and obtain money is by contacting the Registered Keeper (as the DVLA will happy take a few pounds from Parking Eye for this information) - if the Registered Keeper was not driving they have no obligation to say who was therefore Parking Eye have no one to chase - despite what they may suggest in correspondence they will send you.

Yep - wasting your time and the cost of a letter and postage. [1]

 

Sit back and just wait for the well documented junk follow.

 

[1] If you did want to write a letter then something to your local Trading Standards and MP telling them you consider the DVLA providing your details to PPC's is not "just reason" and in breach of the DPA and finally Aldi stores telling them you will use Lidl instead might be better use of your time.

Thanks for all the information lads. What sort of timescale are we talking here in terms of this going away, etc

5/6 letters over a 4 or 5 month period.

 

Under contract law a party is allowed to claim any actual losses they have suffered. Your actions have cost the other party zero pounds. The amount demanded by parking eye is defined as a penalty - a punative charge - which is not legally enforceable (see Dunlop vs New Garage 1913).

 

Practically though, all the company does is buy addresses from the DVLA at £2.50 a pop and send out threatening letters. The law doesn't come into it - they just prey on motorists. Feel free to complain to your local Trading Standards.

 

This [problem] originated when the government started selling addresses to anybody who wanted them. They pocket millions each year so are happy to let the [problem] persist.

 

It's pretty obvious the current lot will be out in May (although personally I don't think much of the other side either).

Parking Eye - definately ignore.

 

Local Morrisons carpark is run by this bunch and word is spreading that ignore works well

And will change precisely nothing as they have their expenses to fund as well :D

Lets see how knowledgebale they are then :eek:

 

You might notice that your V5 states your information may be given to anybody who asks for it and which the DVLA consider "Just Reason" (and for PPC's they do).

 

At £2.50 x however many requests the DVLA get per year the chances of anything changing are, well - you take a guess :mad:

Well I've ignored four of their useless invoices and the story is always the same, they send three letters, an outfit called CCS Collect send two or three letters threatening court action, CCJs, bailiffs, kidnap your dog, sell your kids into slavery, stop you getting credit for the next hundred years etc etc, then you just dont hear from them again.
