    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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

Hi all i am in desperate need for hlp with this issue, i have not sorned my classic fiesta for 4 years, i did however sorn it when i first bought it back in 2005. (yep stupid me but i didnt know until today that i had to do it every year, I have not heard anything from dvla with regards to fines/court action, im now scared that if i sorn it online i will receive a massive fine and have to pay the tax back for the last 5 years.

 

the car has been on my drive since the day i bought it, its actually on bricks with no interior and the engine is in bits.

 

i can take pics to prove its in bits and even get statements from neibours to prove its not moved.

 

please please help me, i asked a traffic officer but they didnt know the ruling around this but said to start gathering info i.e pics and statements to prove its been unroadworthy all this time.

 

look forward to your assistance

Why not send a short letter, saying you've spotted online it is not showing as SORN? Add that the car has still not been restored so will they please ensure the vehicle retains it's SORN status until the restoration is complete?

First thing to do is take off the number plates and cover up the VIN if it is visible from the outside. This prevents NCP or other robbers from Identifying the car and if they cannot identify it they cannot remove it. Then set about sorting out the mess.

the car has been on my drive since the day i bought it, its actually on bricks with no interior and the engine is in bits.

 

Many years ago, in an earlier life, I recall someone being prosecuted for being in charge of a motor vehicle. It was a moped he had been pedaling and the engine was inoperative - parts missing. He successfully got off as the Magistrates said without a working engine it was not a motor vehicle.

 

I know the Law is a bad looser and adapts to losing by changing the rules, but I wonder if there is any relevance here.

tbh i would be inclined to just sorn it online as of now and to keep it up, if they realise there has been a gap deal with it then but for now i wouldnt worry as the dvla are so useless it could go either way

Well Well thanks for all your input, here is the situation, i sent an email to dvla asking them what they want me to do!!!! i explained that i havent taxed or sorned in 4 years and they said i needed to write a letter to preston enforcment officer in preston lol.

 

In my letter i said first of all accept my apologies and explained that i havent sorned in 4 years but could prove the vehicle has been basically on bricks since i sorned it 4 years ago, i was thinking oh my god they are gonna come down heavy on me, BUT and its a fantastic BUT, they sent me a letter back stating there will be no fines or any action against me, just send in a sorn form at the earliest convienience lol woo hoo, just thought i would let you all know.

Don;t forget this, as I wouldn;t put it past them to wait a few weeks, then send you a letter noting that you hadn't taxed or sorned it. Keep checking!

Couldn't you have SORNed it online, then you would have had a receipt immediately?
