    • Don’t forget : medical professionals shouldn’t report you to DVLA (absent you not having capacity to do so yourself, or deliberately failing to do so) Because of confidentiality the ideal is they don’t report you. You inform DVLA and the DVLA forms you then complete make it clear you are giving permission for those medical professionals to respond to a DVLA enquiry. (For info, and I hope it wouldn’t come to it for most sensible people who don’t lack capacity:) However, if it is clear someone lacks capacity to inform DVLA (so, if they are a dementia sufferer, for example) , they can inform DVLA on the basis the person would do so if they were capable, and there is a clear public interest aspect. Similarly, if they advise someone who is competent to inform DVLA, and the person chooses not to, they might then repeat to that patient that they MUST inform DVLA, and if that too fails, suggest (for example) a second opinion. If all else fails AND the medical professional believes the person continuing driving represents a risk to others of death or serious harm :  they can inform the patient that they will be informing DVLA (and then do so). Again : on a public interest basis, and trying reasonable alternatives first.
    • Ready to condemn your right wing heroes racism and anti-semitism yet @theoldrouge Surely its not just convenient fake outrage when it suites your right wing agenda?   Perhaps start with pound shop powell here and move on to horrible anti-semite supporters trumpy and Taylor Green sleeves in the US thread   whats up - ashamed?
    • DCBL provided a copy of UKPC's witness statement. Those costs DCBL were so concerned about were the price of a second class large letter, no more than £1.60. Two key documents are missing: A copy of the contract between UKPC and the Landowner/Tenant; and A so called land plan indicating where signage is placed. I wrote to DCBL regarding their incomplete witness statement and provided a copy of the letter to the court. DCBL missed the deadline to supply me with the missing documents. I have submitted a complaint to the SRA. I decided to submit the complaint against Mr Neil Gordan Smith who is an accredited solicitor and employed by DCBL as its registered compliance officer for legal practice.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I've had a quick search round and don't think this has been done before - apologies if it has.


You know those songs and films when they come on the radio or telly and you just want to go AAAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!?? :mad: Here are my tops, that I'd be happy to never, ever hear or see again as long as I live! Apologies to younger CAGrs, I'm a bit middle-aged and you might not have heard of some of them! ;)




1. I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston (appalling warbling din)

2. Everything I Do I Do For You - Bryan Adams (overplayed soppy bilge)

3. Save Your Love - Rene and Renate (words fail me!)

4. Lady in Red - Chris de Burgh (the bane of every wedding reception - pass the sick bucket)

5. The Birdie Song - The Tweets (ditto - except I just want to punch whoever wrote it)

6. Superman - Black Lace (ditto)

7. The Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler (maudlin dirge)

8. She - Charles Aznavour (oh, no, no, please!)

9. Forever and Ever - Demis Roussos (SCREEEEAAAAAM!)

10. Fight For This Love - Cheryl Cole (shut up and buy a kebab)

11. Do You Believe - Cher (sigh)

12. Bright Eyes - Simon and Garfunkel (dead rabbits anyone?)

13. Amore - Julio Iglesias (used to be on in my Dad's car on the Terry bloody Wogan show every morning in 1982 when he used to give me a lift to work - utterly excruciating)

14. Saviour's Day - Cliff Richard (in fact anything by Sir Stiff is enough to have me running screaming - ugh!)

15. My Diane - The Bachelors (local radio played this for my birthday in 1973 when my Mum had written in and asked for Slade - sheer mortification)

16. True - Spandau Ballet (just awful - conjures up 80's nightclubs and blokes with mullets and rolled up sleeves)

17. I Should Be So Lucky - Kylie Minogue (the start of the horror that was Stock, Aitken and Waterman)

18. Billie Jean - Michael Jackson (yes, I'm probably the only person in the universe who remained completely immune to his entire career)

19. Tragedy - The Bee Gees (it sure is)

20. I've Had the Time of my Life - Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes (rubbish song, rubbish film)




1. Dirty Dancing (like watching paint dry - why does everyone assume all women love this film? I can't stand it!)

2. Grease (ditto, although the music was marginally better)

3. The Sound of Music (no, no and no)

4. Arthur (allegedly a comedy - almost split my sides yawning)

5. Brief Encounter (boring/overrated/ridiculous accents)

6. Bridget Jones Diary (absolute rubbish)

7. Pride and Prejudice (stupefyingly dull, including Colin Firth's silly trousers)

8. Abba The Movie (was hauled to the pictures by my Mum in 1978 to see this - thank God for my box of Meltis Fruits is all I can say)

9. Terminator (testosterone laden rubbbish)

10. Rambo (ditto except worse)

And my absolute hate record of all time is


Dub be good to me by Beat International.


This record used to have me screaming at the radio every time I heard it.


It's some stupid woman singing about how it's okay for the bloke she's in love with to sleep with whoever he wants to, and saying she's rather have a piece of him than nothing - "Just be good to me." Pathetic. You just want to give her a slap and tell her to get some self-respect.


Hate it, hate it, hate it.

Worse film I have ever seen was "Lenny" about the American stand up comedian Lenny Bruce. Dustin Hoffman, what were you doing? This film in black and white is all about his fall into complete and utter degradation - forcing his wife into threesomes, falling in the gutter, prison, and so on. I went expecting a comedy!!!! I was so depressed by the end of it I couldn't face going out to eat afterwards. It really was that bad.

A few songs I really dislike are:


1. Secret Smile - Semisonic (I quite liked some of their others)

2. Sailing - Rod Stewart

3. Mull of Kintyre - Sir Paul & Wings

4. Vienna - Ultravox

5. Hi Ho Silver Lining - Jeff Beck

6. Poison Arrow - ABC


Plus anything by Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Leona Lewis and the rest of the wailing voiced female singers, anything by UB40....ooohh I really don't like them...oh gosh I could go on forever!


I agree about Dirty Dancing..utter tripe, I couldn't even stand to watch it to the end. Oh and An Officer & A Gentleman, a friend put it on as she thought I'd enjoy it as much as she did, after about 30 minutes I fell asleep!

Hmm, songs I hate (in no particular order).


1. Brimful of Asha (what the hell was that all about??) - no idea

2. Bad Moon Rising - Creedende Clearwater Revival

3. Oops ups side your head - no idea

4. Most things by Prince (I'm sorry but I just don't understand the squeal appeal)

5. Take my breath away - Berlin. Ruined a perfectly good soundtrack.

6. He's going to marry me - Dolly Parton

7. Anything by Kate Bush. Again not understanding the squeal appeal.

8. Any song where Mark Owen (Take That) sings more than the backing vocal. Poor soul seems to think he can sing!
