    • 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 .

Hi there everybody, a friend referred me to these forums, he tells me this is the best place on the net to find advice about this kind of thing. I am praying he's right, and I fly a lot so perhaps I can help other people on this site too.

 

 

Okay so I booked my holiday with my GF weeks ago now, for the 10th Sept - 17th of Sept. From Stuttgart to Majorca. (My GF is German, and I'm staying with her over summer)

 

Everything seemed fine, until this morning Expedia called to inform us that our flight times with Condor have changed, from

 

Depart Stuttgart, 10th 5:55am... Return 17th 12:55pm

 

to

 

 

Depart Palma 10th 3:00pm... Return 17th 6:55pm

 

My girlfriend, dazed as she'd just woke up, agreed to the change. She told me she had no choice anyway, as even if we disagreed, we'd be without a holiday, or have to pay for much more expensive flights if we rebooked...

 

I rang both Condor and Expedia to ask if any form of compensation can be claimed for this, as really, we miss a whole day of our holiday through arriving at around 5pm (after hotel transfer, 6pm)... Which totally sucks, as we end up with only 6 days, which isn't something we agreed to pay for. We also leave Majorca at 6pm, which gives us a whole day of walking around with our suitcases.

 

Both Condor and Expedia played me around, 4 calls infact, telling me to call the other company and claiming they were not responsible until finally Condor told me I wasn't entitled to anything, since my GF had agreed to it.

 

 

Does anyone know what I can do to claim something for this? It seems against my rights as I bought a set flight and so I expect that fight. I wouldn't buy a Ferrari and settle for a Skoda so how is this different? Am I entitled for anything or am I stuck with these dire flights we've been given now? Has anybody had a similar experience?

 

Many thanks.

 

Luke.
