    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

The aircraft side was taken over by BAC if I remember rightly.

Has anyone had a knock yet?

 

I've just had a really unpleasant experience from a large goon who was not only threatening, he demanded to know iif there was a reason I had not completed my census form .................... I have!!!!

 

 

And why haven't they got it!!! How would I know????

 

He then left! Didn't get asked to fill in another one or anything, so have no idea what happens now!!

 

 

So I'll phone them to complain tomorrow because it was so bad, and I live on my own and had taken some strong pain killers earlier so wasn't too with it either! Really shouldn't have answered the door, but 'someone' kept knocking and knocking........................

 

I feel mightily aggrieved!!!

 

:mad2:

:evil:

 

 

That's it - they're picking on me 'cos I'm an ol dearie wot can be easily intimidated ............................ or so they thought!!!

 

 

I wasn't that bothered before - didn't like the stupid thing and it was a ridiculous waste of money and utterly pointless questions, but still filled it all in even tho I was tempted to add some very pithy comments (and yes, that is PITHY without a lithp) because it was such an appallingly thought out census.

 

Well now me caged is rattled and I feel like a big bite on some roast leg of consenus man!! I hope wads and wads of the forms go missing and the whole thing is shown up for the waste of money and shambles it is!!

 

 

 

8-) I feel a bit better for that now, thankyou.

And WTF is 'Myrrh' anyway ???

Well, if they come back, maybe I'll just have to have a convenient bottle of Chianti in me hand!!

They must be reading this thread !! :x

 

Two of my three kings turned up not 10 Min's ago. One long haired greasy looking guy who looked like he had just fallen off his motor bike, and a woman who looked like a bikers moll :roll: The guy said he was the 'coordinator' to check on the behavior of the visitors !!

 

Well, I went though the list I posted on the 1st page, I don't think they knew the story behind the census and Christmas.

Anyway, they went away and then turned up at the back door two minutes later having got lost. There is only five houses here for heavens sake.

 

I can see why people could be intimated by these callers at 8 o'clock in the evening.

As this subject is so busy, it reminds me of a song by XTC. Can you guess the title?

 

 

 

 

Across a crowded room

I first set eyes on you

My vision was impaired

Obstructed out of view

 

By those - faces in a crowded room

them - bodies in a crowded room

their - breathing in a crowded room

and their - pushing me out

down the fire escape

 

In the crowded room I won't touch too much

I felt the punch of a punch

The language was enough

To send me running [etc.]

 

:razz:
