    • Not really. The signs have to go where they are practical. Every single yellow should have a time plate, and the motorist has to look for it - you can just say you couldn't see it. If it's there, and I assume the CEO took a photo of it, then the driver has neglected his obligation to find out what the restriction is before parking.   The only way you might be able to argue this is if the sign is next to a separate stretch of yellow line - eg, separated from the one he parked on by, say, a road junction or a parking bay. Every individual stretch of line needs its own sign.
    • You haven't told us anything about the vehicle in terms of the make model mileage – price paid et cetera. Also where was it advertised and what the advertisement say? On the basis of what you have told us, you should have no problem asserting rights whether or not you are dealing with a trader or a private seller. However it would be helpful if it was a trader – and you say that it is and that you have evidence. The problem is, whether they trade. Do they have any seizable assets? You obviously dealing with somebody who is going to be very slippery even if you get a court judgement against them. Do you know where they live? Do they and their own property? And I suppose it won't be much of a comfort to you but it may be instructive to others when I say that you have managed to acquire all this evidence – but what a shame you didn't go about this before you parted with your money rather than afterwards.
    • Brillliant reply from Caroline Voaden MEP on Twitter.   Who will hold these people to account asks @june_mummery ? She has also asked if she can come back to attend fisheries com mtgs. Thing is June you wanted to leave. You wanted us to have no voice here, to go it alone. You all crow about your ‘win’. This is what it means. Well done
    • Thank you. What you have suggested about a motor trader had occurred and yes she has been naive about this. They were sufficiently satisfied to purchase the car and they did know about the problem. She had been driving it up until the morning of the sale with no problems and she had told them about the oil leak - it's otherwise in very good condition, has a long MOT and has been serviced regularly. There's also the issue of insurance should she accept return (she transferred insurance to her new car )
    • June Mummery, a Brexit Party MEP, has just woken up to the fact that leaving Europe gives us less control over fisheries. From her Twitter feed.   Attending the penultimate session of the #EuropeanParliament’s #FisheriesCommittee #PECHcommittee) with #BritishMEPs. The big question now is, who will be here to hold these people to account while they still control Britain’s waters, but the UK has no representation?

Hi, Does anyone have an accurate answer to what type of postal service an "S" is on an envelope?

 

I have read many a thread staing that S means 2nd class and therefore 4 days postage applies....is this documented anywhere?...

 

In my case i am referring to UK Mail but any information or thoughs would be welcome.

 

Thanks

Ok, I think that is have managed to find some further information relating to the "S" on the postmark. It would appear that this is linked to the license that has to be issued by the post office to 3rd party operators (UK Mail, TNT etc) which allows them to supply a seperate service to companies (Egg, MBNA etc) and carry out mail collection and sorting with the final mail being delivered by Royal Mail.

 

I just can't find out how you tell if the mail is sent 1st or 2nd Class.

 

With so many people placing the importance of 2nd v 1st class mail (i.e in default notices etc) someone must have found some information to support.

 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Sorry to be a pain...but does anyone have any comments to add?

 

I have received a reply to my defence from to solicitors acting for the CC which states that MBNA send all their mail First Class....any pointers would be welcomed.

 

Thanks

I do not have any 1st class post from MBNA!

 

This has been stated before on threads I have read. Did you keep the envelopes of any correspondence?

Have you tried contacting Royal Mail and asking them?

 

Much easier to read the many MBNA threads, don't think RM will be of any help IMO.

Thanks TWTT, I did research the Royal Mail angle and only found out the information as posted above at #2

 

Thanks Dotty.....I have already looked at their site and this is the closest I can get to a mention of delivery timescales... http://www.ukmail.biz/UKDeliveries

 

You can see they state that they do either 2 day or 3 day...but how do you tell?...and this is not a 4 day service!!

 

I take you point about reading the posts...and boy have i read a few!!...but everyone makes statements like "it was sent UK mail so it was def 2nd class"...but how do i prove this. Yes, i have every envelope saves with the date i received noted on it.

 

I would hate to run my case further on the basis of a defective DN only to find out the all MBNA mail is 1st class...or a gauranteed 2 day service.

 

Somebody must have dug up some information on this?

 

Thanks

post sent by S post uk mail can NEVER be guaranteed first class delivery since at least one day has to be allowed between being picked up by uk mail and delivered into the royal mail system

 

uk mail do not collect from their clients on sat/sun/bank hoildays either - so watch out for mbna letters dated friday or saturday (i even have one purported to have been written on 1 January 2010!)

 

you can safely make a statement in your defence (IMO) that MBNA are stating a mistruth

 

i for one (if required- will happily provide a statement and copies of letters and envelopes from mbna all by "S" second class post and i suspect others on the forum would do the same for you if pm;s

 

therefore i think if you provided 3/4 witnesses like this to back up your arguments you would make them look a little silly

 

i assume if course that you have saved the en=velopes and actively asserted the date you ACTUALLy received them

Hi,i came across this on a site a few days ago,do not know if it helps copied fro that site.

 

" The significance of the bold S has not been confirmed, but it may stand for same (day), as Royal Mail is contracted to deliver such items within 24 hours of arrival at the Mail Centre"
