    • @Man in the middle I've been searching the forum and you seem very knowledgeable. Would you mind giving a look at my query please? Thanks in advance!!
    • Thanks for this! I'm still not clear if I'm facing more than 6 points on my license though. Can you explain any further please? When I accept the 2nd speeding ticket, will they just charge me £100 and 3 points, or will they be more severe concenquences since that offense took place the following day of the 1st offense? Similarly, when I accept the 3rd offense, will they look at my record or just charge me with the £100 fine and 3 points?
    • Yes of course. That's why it says cc:: BIg Motoring World at the bottom. Don't imagine that this solves the issue. It doesn't. He not have to force the finance company and big motoring world to accept the rejection to give your money back. I suggest that you get the letter off tomorrow. And let us know what you hear but on Friday you should then send a threat to the finance company.   Have a look what I have said here about your options and read the whole thread as well.  
    • Been perusing the actual figures on the polls above wondering where the '16% claimed for deform comes from? I understand that there are 'weighted' end results based on secret calculations ...   Probably going to repeat this later, but remember that the ukip/brexit/reform/deform party has ALWAYS had poll speculation FAR better than their actual  performance at elections - by large margins. SO: The labor and Tory votes come largely from simply the people who say they will vote for them - sorted Lab 43% Tory 20%, with maybe another small 1-2% coming from the weightings of the 'not sures' Greens largely get what is declared from 'other' , although with another declared green bit from the 'pressed' question   So as the share of the voting displayed in 'other' granted to reform/deform is around 11%, where does the '16% too often being reported come from? Seems that reform has been granted as beneficiary of effectively ALL the don't knows and wont says, who when pressed didn't actually declare for someone else ... effectively adding 40%+ to their reported polling % - rather strange given their consistent under-performance compared to polling - or perhaps that is the cause of the higher rating eh?   Now I admit the possibility (probability?) of wingers being ashamed of declaring their support for the yuckey lemon end of the spectrum ... but surely  that should affect the 'Torys as well? Maybe the statisticians have simply weighted in that deform wingers are simply more likely to lie?   But - without 'weightings' and assumptions that faragits will get everything that isnt declared as a definite and unequivocal 'not that Piers Morgan' - reform is on around 11% it seems.   Add to that the history of polling a lot less than the hype - and the simple fact that faragit wingers seem to be spread across the country (presumably skulking in their moms spare room despite being 45+) and greens and lib dems seem to be community minded - I think two seats will be an epic result for farage. Hardly the opposition - far more raving wingnut party.   and importantly - Has farage got a home in clacton yet?

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • 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.

Wondering if anyone can help me, I worked for a company called Ultrasound Weight Loss, and they text me last month to say that I was being made redundant on what was supposed to be my payday. The manager then gave me a date for payment, which would the 1st of July. On the day before this I recieved a letter saying that the company had ceased trading and all payments were suspended. I have no indiciation of whether I'm not I'm going to get the money I'm owed, and have no idea how to go about retrieving it as I'm only 19. The family owning the company are known , I worked 12 hour days without breaks, I never recieved a pay slip while I was in their employ and the working conditions were horrendous. Please can someone give me some advice on how to get my money back, I am owed £1210 for a month's worth of work and it seems no one is willing to help me get it?

being made redundant on your payday, that smells for a start and they cant do that, you should have had a notice of redundancy and consultation period before being made redundant so that is an employment tribunal claim for unlawful deduction of wages

 

how long have you worked for this company and HOW were you paid previous salary

Hello and welcome to CAG. I'm sorry to hear about your problems.

 

What do you know about the company going bust please? Does this letter mention an 'administrator'? That's a person like an accountant who is appointed to wind up a company's affairs.

 

My best, HB

no there was no administrator mentioned. I know nothing of the company going bust, the therapists that worked there are not informed of anything :(

I only worked for them for two months and the previous month they paid me late and that was after me nagging and nagging them to pay me, as I know therapists from other clinics walked out due to non payment.

Did the letter you had saying they had ceased trading give any details of what you should do if you are owed money? If they'd gone into liquidation you should be able to contact receivers as you are a creditor.

 

Did they send you a P45? If not you will need one.

No they gave no information at all :/ I found it very odd but like I said I'm only 19 and this was my first job so I'm not sure what's legal and what isn't. No they didn't send a p45

Wondering what the next steps will now be, they said they would contact me within 14 days in regards to whether I was being paid or not and haven't been contacted or informed of anything and the 14 days are up?

When you are dealing with them, do it in writing or tape calls, Any other way is likely to be denied later.

 

Do you know if after your "redundancy" if they took on someone else to do the same job?

 

I think your best bet would probably be to visit a local CAB, mainly because they are likely to have knowledge of previous issues with the company.

 

Keep posting here too though - as using two resources is likely to get you a better result that just one.

I would write to them and tell them that you require your final payment and P45. If you don't get it, write again and give them another 7 days or you will be forced to take out a court claim against them.

 

This isn't as scary as it sounds, and if you're unemployed and on benefits you are likely to be exempt from paying court fees.

Okay thank you very much for the help, I will be writing to them shortly.

I don't believe they've taken any one else on but I think they have re-opened in another name and are just letting this company die out.
