    • Johnson and Gove must think that Scottish independence is a certainty and Irish reintegration in the EU very likely - and they dont give much of a monkeys about wales Knowledge of Scotland not essential for government’s new ‘union unit’ jobs https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/scotland-uk-union-unit-jobs-gove-b1800250.html   "The job ad at Michael Gove’s department demands candidates “demonstrate good political judgement” and have the “credibility to build a strong network of relationships across Whitehall”. " "However, it states that “understanding of policy issues relevant to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland” is only “desirable”"
    • many thanks DX I will do follow this advice.    one comment on what I've read on here. IDR  / the banks seem to rely on the non exclusive jurisdiction clause. However surely that would mean once its been through court here, it would no longer be active in UAE. Of course that is not how they work ie they would go for both UK and UAE if you ever returned. Is there not a way of highlighting and fighting there use of this clause on that basis?
    • Did you apply for a refund before you took any reclaim action?  If Ryanair refunded you for your flight then you have chosen to "end your contract" with them and they have no further liability for your travel.  This is pivotal because as long as you have a paid up ticket (and booking reference) then they have full liability and responsibility for you.  The minute they refund you, they have discharged their duty and you are on your own.   I am still trying to understand the basis for your claim.  The law says that if you are delayed then you have the option to refund or re-route (but not both which seems to be the case here).  You can go with the original carrier or not despite what Ryanair would have you believe.  You should tell them what you intend to do so they cannot claim later that you did not give them the option.     If I were to apply the best case to your situation it would be that the flight was delayed, you somehow told Ryanair that you were re-routing and off you went with your alternative travel arrangements.  You then put in your claim and waited.  If you then asked for a refund after your travel claim went in then you (and they) could argue that Ryanair has already part-paid your claim but you have a better case.  If you asked for a refund before your claim went in then the emphasis sits more with you to say you made a procedural error and they have a stronger defence.
    • There is a 'pharmacy' based one within range, although I understand the vaccinations are done by the pharmacy team at a nearby (otherwise closed) community centre - not the pharmacy   Have no idea why. probably space.   They are vaccinating with O/AZ as most seem to be apparently due to pfiser shortages
    • Thanks BankFodder. I sent the letter signed for on Friday, but it's not been received/signed for yet. So presumably the 10 days is from when they receive it?   Just to be clear, you're saying I should still start s75 now anyway (and not wait 10 days), correct?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I bought a building plot this morning in Glasgow which I am very :D very happy about, but leaving me fairly skint. I had already arranged an appointment with the bank for Wednesday to hopefully borrow some of the money back.

 

I have only casual/work clothes with me in the UK - so bought two suits afterwards.

 

One is tailored slim fit and looks passable as a back up, although is a bit tight on the outer arms though you cannot notice this, but I would like to get the other altered as a comfier fit.

 

Jacket is 50 inch - trousers are 32 - and my niece can stand inside the front and it fastens round both of us, although its a really good fit from the chest up.

 

Is this type of alteration possible, and does anyone know of anywhere who are likely to be able to do it before Wednesday afternoon?

 

I think Monday might be a holiday in Glasgow too- but wont be in Paisley.

I don't follow football at all, although my mum's cousin was one of the most capped players for Scotland before I was born, playing his first game for Celtic on 19/8/44. His name was Bobby Evans, and he died about ten years ago.

 

That aside, I think its really unfair what has happened to Rangers, given sport should be above politics and finance - making it massively unjust to place a team based on their finances rather than ability.

 

If kids were placed in schools with a similar underpinning there would be an outcry, although it seems Westminster currently has incumbents well fulfilling this unfortunate specification.

You are kidding, wear the slim fit one sounds good to go, in any case as you've spent out recently best to economise.

Thanks - I am amazed they are still there. They used to be on ?Howard St? up a close long before the St Enoch Centre was built. I got a suit there in the early 80s, although the alteration that time was lousy.

 

Funnily - that was the suit that made me realise it was a waste of time buying a suit as a whole, rather than as matching jacket and trousers in different sizes, as they had to take the trousers in so much the pockets sat open like elephant's ears.

 

I never thought they would still be about - I will give them a call/visit tomorrow.

 

Tried to rep you - but it said I need to spread it about a bit. So one I owe you. - Cheers
