    • Interesting that analysis seem to show that the eat out to help out * didn't significantly help the industry - although it did help somewhat as a temporary patch which has largely been undone * DID seem to help the spread of covid (less surety on that) * cost the british taxpayer 500 million mainly to the benefit of higher end 'restaurants and wealthier eaters   Imagine if that money had been spent using outlets to feed hungry children ... but of course the benefit wouldn't have gone to the same sort of places - more to high street cafes etc.
    • Indeed.   I was interested in his comment that one Ireland is worth six Japans in terms of exports. It's an awful lot easier to get to.
    • mm - 5x more benefit to Japan than to the UK I couldn't find that much actual real benefit to the UK, and nothing that was effectively and practically better than the existing EU-JP deal we benefited from ... to the British public   .. seems to include the future 'possible' (aka not against the laws of physics) increases in UK 'enhanced financial access (which will certainly only be allowed where Japan benefits more from them)
    • It seems very favourable to Japan.   As for the soy sauce debacle... Who are these people running the Twitter feeds for government departments?
    • Its small beer in the scheme of things HB, and MSM will lap it up.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi Guys,


I've looked through a lot of these threads, but can't find the template I need. Anybody fancy saving me some time ?


Just rec'd a court summons for non-notification on a bike I sold a few months ago. I certainly DID send the V thingy off.


I spoke to the DVLA and the women there said that they wrote to me querying something. I never recieved the letter, but surely they had notification if they had a query !!


Anyone know where the template I need is ?

First thing I would do is askthem to send you a copy of this letter they claim to have sent you. When you get it, and then tell them you are not paying their stupid fine, it will look good in court when you show a letter that they sent you after receiving your V5 notification that they also claim they didn't receive. :confused:

Did the buyer not get back to you to query his lack of a V5c? If, having both of you signed it and posted it off, only his application direct to them for a replacement or duplicatew V5C would flag a query to you advising of the request to change the RK. By responding to this, it often heads off any action. If you sent the V5C without the other drivers signature, and they've wueried this - then they are still in the clear as the RK wasn't transferred.


Are you still the RK, or was the bike reregistered?

Sorry Guys,


I'm actually doing this for a friend of mine.


He actually rec'd a Court Summons for the end of the month ! Whilst I know he should ask for a copy of the correspondence they claim to have sent, is there anything he should send to the DVLA and the court NOW to try to ward off the action.


Would a letter quoting the Interpretation Act and mentioning the fact that there was no query from the new owner be a good idea at this point ?

Nothing he needs to send to the DVLA, it is their action. If the Summons is issued, there's nothing to ward off - it will call in court regardless. He should ensure that the court is aware he intends to defend, and make sure he reads and understands all the documentation he recieves.


If he's going to rely on the Interpretation Act, he needs to lodge this as part of his court bundle. Don;t highlight the sections he'll rekly on, as he'' be asking the judge to refer to the part that states his obligation is limited to advising, not responding to non receipt of a letter DVLA might not have sent him.

I would think that the letter your friend received from the DVLA is in response to the the new owner's application for a new V5C as it seems that DVLA lost the original, and as he didn't respond they issued a new V5C and then commenced proceedings against your friend for not notifing them of the change of keeper.


As long as your friend sent the document to DVLA by normal post, under the Interpretation Act they are deemed to have received it unless they can prove he didn't, which can be difficult for them.


So what they do is ignore that - and sometimes say it doesn't apply to them - and say that on the V5C is printed that when they receive the document they will send acknowledgment and if you don't receive it you must contact them, and then claim that as you didn't you are guilty!!


There is no legal requirements for them to send acknowledgement or you to contact them if you don't receive it, unfortunately some magistrates don't understand that and incorrectly find the person guilty.


At court your friend needs to swear that he did send the document, (and mention the Interpetation Act) and if the DVLA mention the acknowlegment letter, ask what legal authority requires them to send one, or him to do anything if he doesn't receive it.

Fine with all of the above, but not 'mentioning' the Interpretation Act. If you plan to rely on this as part of your defence, it MUST be included in your court bundle. The judge does not have all the laws on shelves behind him, so you need to provide extracts that can be verified if required.
