    • Very good, UB.   I'm not clear on the status of Kent now. People are talking about it being part of France, etc, but how is tht when the 'border' only applies to lorries?
    • Campaign starts ? Independence for Kent, so it becomes a separate customs area and can charge a tariff on goods transported through its territory.  With the money raised, citizens of Kent might then have little or no income taxes to pay.   I could see this campaign being started and it could grow in popularity.   Would be funny if Brexit led to break up of UK and break away by some English counties. 
    • SERCO seem to be a default company that Government use to perform contact centre type tasks. So any department faced with a problem, say a sudden increase in incoming phone calls, which they cannot handle, because they are dealing with more immediate issues such as making payments to the public, may in the short term involve SERCO.   SERCO seem to employ a lot of security cleared, DBS checked, financial checked etc employees, so they seem to be equipped and ready to manage tasks on behalf of Government departments.   No idea just how much work SERCO does on behalf of Government, but I should imagine it makes up a sizeable chunk of their business.   Public Health departments may want to perform the work themselves, but given the number of employees required, the recruitment process involved, the hours of work 24/7 and just how quick they need to be set up to perform the work, I question whether they are better placed to do so.   I would always prefer public sector employees over outsourced contracts, but I can understand why Government uses companies such as SERCO. 
    • Well, we’ve found something we agree on.   you’ve described the unfairness, but haven’t said what (realistically!) you feel your options are.
    • There's a campaign against Serco and in favour of local public health people. Apologies for one bit of language but it's a memorable slogan.   https://twitter.com/i/status/1309910583790252037

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Since I was a teenager I've had a problem with my neck. In the front of my neck on the right hand side I quite often have a pulling sensation, like something is trapped. Every so often it 'pops' and feels like something's moved and is the worst pain I've ever had in my life. Breathing is very difficult, swallowing almost impossible due to pain, the longer it goes on for the more it hurts and the pain spreads through my face and my neck. Sometimes I can push it back with my hand other times I have to force myself to swallow and that clicks it back. The first time it happened I was stretching and yawning at the same time. My neck has never been the same since. My GP just keeps fobbing me off with pills (strong painkillers and muscle relaxents), sent me to an ENT years ago who stuck a camera down my throat and said there's nothing there. Well, I pretty much knew that anyway. It's my neck, not my throat that's the problem. I recently saw a neurologist after having another very bad episode (on the day of my best friends wedding to which I was bridesmaid at) who said that there is no neurological problem that he can find, but he believes it's the hyoid bone in my neck moving for some reason and he doesn't deal with that. He's suggested I go back to ENT. It's something that I seem to find very little information on, and although it's a long shot, and supposedly a rare problem, I thought I'd see if anyone on here has had any problems with their hyoid bone or knows someone who has.

Gonna bump this, I have never heard of problems with a Hyoid bone. Hope ENT find something and offer a positive solution.

If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)
