    • Several organisations are concerned about exploding messages and lack of transparency. I suspect it hasn't been by accident, this isn't how government business should be done. If the people involved were in the private sector, they'd likely be in trouble.   I've also read that when news of Sue Gray's enquiry came out, there was an order from on high to delete anything to do with parties from mobile phones. You'd hope the Met would be looking at that, also that they can retrieve deleted messages from the server or wherever.
    • In parallel, there needs to be a proper accounting for all the 'government business' carried out on these private phones, and all parties (sic) involved banned from public office, all agreements vetted by cross party commissions, and all funds involved clawed back immediately and held until the results of the commissions clear them .. or not, with all legitimate interactions properly logged into government systems.   In parallel with that there needs to be further investigation into any criminality occurring via those mechanisms, with proper justification for actions checked - not simple lack of evidence for criminality as an unlawful/unofficial mechanism was used and destroyed   Then perverting the course of justice and some sort of abuse of position charges for all as a minimum.   Johnsons 'guvernment running via 'dark web' and related mechanisms used by perverts and criminals to evade justice has to be stopped and punished
    • Thank you again, Bazza. That was the problem I was having yesterday,  no figures beyond July last year. I thought there might be some more recent ones that I'd missed.   Here's more on the ONS statement, from Full Fact.   Dan Wootton and David Davis make incorrect claims about Covid-19 deaths - Full Fact FULLFACT.ORG Data from the ONS shows that to the end of September 2021, 17,371 people died in England and Wales of Covid and had no pre-existing conditions.  
    • That still leaves the parties the Met isn't investigating though and the drinking culture in no10 though, doesn't it?   If they're not careful though, there will be accusations of no10 kicking the can down the road and possibly trying to influence the investigations.
    • Hi there. an update for you   1) independent surveyor report was sent to builder on 13 Dec.   2) builder only responded yesterday. They dispute the majority of the issues identified. Claiming for example: that we have influenced the expert witness surveyor, that we have caused some of the issues by undoing work, that that the surveyor is wrong,    3) through trading standards we gave them the month of nov to finish plus put things (known) right, at no point did they say a month was unreasonable, they were onsite for less than 10 days of nov,  early nov building control initially visited and highlighted issues, they claim building control have now signed off their work at the end of nov   4) building control visited last week at my request, there are still issues with their work, it has not been signed off and never was at the end of nov    4) builder now says there they didn’t have time to put known things right in nov (they are always contradicting themselves) and that they should be allowed to return to site  to fix these ‘minor snags’, the majority are not minor snags, they are building regulation contraventions    5) we have quotes from 3rd parties to do the work. We do not want the original builders back because:    a)quality of their workmanship has been called into question by ourselves, building control and a 3rd party surveyor    b) lack of trust in what they tell us - for example they’ve deviated from the plan, used different materials, refused to fix items saying nothing wrong and it’s how they always do it, refused to give deadlines, knowingly cut corners, have said work is signed off when it isn’t etc    c) their behaviour:  smoking weed on site, urinating next to my garden office, swearing, smoking, leaving the house with doors wide open and unlocked, leaving site unsafe with scaffold boards & materials lying across/over paths at end of day/week, all these things were raised with them verbally & in emails    d) they repeatedly said they hate working for us, they can’t wait to leave, none of them enjoy coming here etc   so, my question is.. do we have to allow them to return or can we say that we want a refund or for them to cover 3rd party costs?    im feeling that they have had enough opportunities to do the right thing and put things right, I’m also feeling that we aren’t being unreasonable by not wanting them back..   they say they can’t understand why we are rushing to get 3rd parties to finish the job and that the job is ‘live ‘ with them.   my feeling is that this job should have been finished in July (at no point have they provided a revised completion date despite us asking numerous times), they were given nov to finish & go, we’ve not heard from them over past 2 months so how could it still be live, and that we’ve spent 2 cold months living in a half finished house which doesn’t have heating completed, is damp & draughty, Ofcourse we want to get it finished asap! Any input would be appreciated, thank you.

My credit card debt has been passed to Mercers. I've told them how much I can pay and that I will pay by s/o (they wanted a direct debit but I've refused). As I've not heard fom them regarding my letter to pay by s/o I still want to send a cheque to them which I've been doing for the past 2 months. Who do I send it too Barclays or Mercers? :idea:

Mercers ARE Barclays!:shock:

 

They haven't passed it onto anyone, except the cleaner in the next office.

 

Just go ahead and set up a SO through your bank, you don't need sharklays permission.:D

Someone has previously said that sending a cheque isn't a good idea but if I use internet banking I will have to give them my card details, so what's the difference? Also, if a set up a s/o how can I do that without Barclay's giving me their details? Sorry for being slow but I'm new to this. Regards.

Take a look on your sharklays statements, their banking details will be on there, as for your bank details, and setting up a S/O it is completely different to a DD, a DD allows the company/organisation to take whatever amount of money they want out, where as a S/O is controlled by you.

Internet banking has nothing to do with your switch card.

Like I said before it depends wether your bank has the facility.

You would pay them as Bazooka Boo has already said.

You just enter their account number, sort code, your barclaycard number as the ref and the amount you wish to pay, it is then transferred direct from the balance of your switch account. No other card details are involed other than the Barclaycard account you are paying.

Hi

 

A little advice needed! I've just sent my standing order form to my bank to pay off a debt every month. They've emailed me back because I haven't put any payment reference number on it. On the form it does say (if known). I've supplied the sort code and the account number which I found on the back of my credit card statement. Where will I find the reference number. Thanks.

If you're paying the CC company it's usually your a/c no. If you're paying a DCA it's normally their ref: no.

Hi Can some kind soul point me in the right direction? My credit card debt has been passed to Mercers. I have spoken twice to them on the phone (never again!). We agreed a mutual sum each month to pay this debt off. Unfortunately, they requested my bank details for a DD. I refused so it became stalemate. I wrote to them to ask for their details so that I could set up a s/o. I didn't realise at the time I could do it without their permission. Before I heard from them I gained more knowledge from you guys so I went ahead and set up a s/o. They've now replied to my letter saying that I need to pay £x amount to bring my outstanding balance up to date. My s/o payment doesn't start until next week so how should I reply to their letter? Kind regards......

I probably wouldn't bother entertaining them with their game of letter tennis, you've got he SO set up so wait until it kicks in, and await the next barrage of deforestation to hit your doormat, saying it isn't enough..

 

Or you could simply write them a one liner informing them that payments will begin next week.

Hi WITP,

 

You were right to refuse the DD arrangement - keep control for yourself !!

 

If you are willing and able to make the agreed payments to clear the a/c, fine.

 

If not, make the payments as agreed just now but send Mercers a CCA request by Rec'd Del'y - http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/581-cca-request-letter

 

Are there any penalty charges or mis-sold PPI on the a/c. If so they can be reclaimed with interest.

 

If you don't have statements for the a/c going back 6 years, get them with a SAR - http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/48-bank-templates/110--data-protection-act-1998-subject-access-request-

 

While waiting for their replies, read the Reclaiming Charges guide at Link No1 in my signature below.
