    • Hi,  Update: the breeder has now had a solicitors letter sent to me refusing to accept judgement based on a faulty service ( claiming the name was spelt wrong etc), so no PoC has been received so I must stop the judgement or pay her costs in court as she now seeks an urgent order based on incorrect service.   I explained she confirmed their details twice upon being asked where she wanted docs to go and that she refused delivery at her home address of the action coming so she’s obstructed service herself.   lesley 
    • The above does need careful consideration of all aspects but   ‘You’ve ruined this country’: Israeli ministers heckled out of hospital WWW.TELEGRAPH.CO.UK Civilians could be heard shouting ‘get out of here’ as public anger at the government mounts        
    • Israel knew of Hamas plot more than a year ago Israeli officials obtained Hamas’s battle plan for the devastating Oct. 7 terrorist attack more than a year before it happened, according to documents, emails and interviews, but they dismissed it as aspirational, considering it too difficult for Hamas to carry out. In fact, Hamas followed the blueprint with shocking precision. Over about 40 pages, a document code-named Jericho Wall by the Israeli authorities outlined exactly the kind of devastating invasion that led to the deaths of about 1,200 people. It did not set a date, but it described a methodical assault designed to overwhelm the fortifications around the Gaza Strip, take over Israeli cities and storm key military bases. Last year, shortly after the document had been obtained, officials in the Israeli military said that Hamas’s intentions were unclear. Then, in July, just three months before the attacks, a veteran Israeli intelligence analyst warned that Hamas had conducted an intense, daylong training exercise that appeared similar to what was outlined in the blueprint. Those concerns were brushed off. Concessions: Israeli security officials have already acknowledged that they failed to protect the country, and the government is expected to assemble a commission to study the events leading up to the attacks. The Jericho Wall document lays bare the missteps that culminated in what officials now regard as the worst Israeli intelligence failure in five decades. More from the war: Antony Blinken, the U.S. secretary of state, urged Israeli leaders to take concrete steps to reduce civilian deaths in Gaza. At least three people were killed and six others wounded when two Hamas-affiliated gunmen opened fire on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Since the Oct. 7 attacks, extremist settlers in the West Bank have been emboldened, displacing more than 1,000 Palestinians, according to the U.N. -NYT

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Since March 2010 my wife who is now over 60 has been on SSP and then ESA which stopped in April 2012. In early 2011 she went for an ATOS assessment and moved into the ESA support group. As she has osteoarthritis in her hands, wrists and lower arms there is almost no chance of her working again.

When her contribution based ESA finished in April she never applied to move it to income ESA or whatever they call it. As I am on Pension credit I notified the relevant department that she no longer received ESA and they adjusted my Pension credit payment. In essence we get a bit less than when she was on ESA.

Today she received a letter advising her to attend another ATOS medical in two weeks time. Perhaps they think there is a miracle cure for osteoarthritis? She contacted them to advise she was not claiming JSA or ESA and asked if she still needed to attend.

They told her that she would not be getting any NI contributions paid and to notify Jobcentre. We assume that they would have checked before increasing my pension credit.

She has in excess of 25 years contributions, but less than 30. Should she apply for income support ESA or are her contributions enough for her state pension? What should we do?

If your wife is in the support group it does not stop after a year, she would still be required to attend WCAs though. If she doesn't they will stop her ESA and NI credits, but she may even pass it again and nothing will change. If she was moved to WRAG I think that would be payable for a year.


You can't claim income based ESA if your partner in on pension garentee credit. I know this as I am in a similar position. I checked with the top man (IDS I think) and was assured the pension credit would make up any lose of ESA. If your wife does not have enough credits (as my wife) it should be made up by pension credits.

So it seems that we have done the correct thing. Job centre told her not to worry about coming in for support group earlier this year unless they contacted her. That was the last we heard of it.

Is she still obliged to go for the ATOS medical anyway as ATOS were not able to give us an answer? We would like to do the correct thing to avoid any future issues.
