    • Hi I hope all are ok in these trying times. I assume most of us will be in the same situation with employment etc. I am obviously still intending to follow through my complaint against MB. However I do have to make decisions as I have found myself as will most people at this time left with a reduced minimal income, with all I can forsee is an impending up hill struggle for the forceable future. So not sure what, if any options I still have, I am presuming VT was only an option earlier on and a court CO excludes that option, I cant continue to honour the finance payments and cant even begin to estimate any timescales I would be again financially stable. So im basically trapped but want, no I need to get rid of MB all together, they can have the car and I learned the expensive way! MB recently emailed a letter (which is copied below) in it they refer to a recent termination, this is the part that is very confusing as its my understanding they terminated the agreement in March 17. They also inform they have placed the collections on hold, but then heres the cheeky bit, they do however want me to basically store the vehicle, tax and insure it, as per the agreement (the agreement that they already state was terminated) until they continue with their collection process; Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic currently affecting the UK and wider world, we’re emailing to update you on what will now happen regarding the collection of your vehicle, following the termination of your Moneybarn vehicle finance agreement. We won’t be collecting the vehicle at this time Normally, following termination of your agreement, we would arrange for an inspection and collection of the vehicle. However because of the current Government imposed lockdown, we are not currently able to collect vehicles until further notice. What will happen next? Nothing for the moment. We’ll contact you as soon as there are any developments in the Government’s stance and we know that we’re able to resume our normal vehicle collection activity. What do you need to do? We would appreciate if you can please keep the vehicle taxed and insured for the time being, as per the terms and conditions of your finance agreement. We hope this information is helpful and clear. Please stay safe and well, and if you need to contact us with any questions, please check out the latest information on the best way to reach us at So they state termination, then expect to lay down instructions for me to comply with as per my finance agreement T&Cs. To look after the vehicle that they do intend to continue collection of. If everythings terminated and in other words I have no right to the vehicle, Im not prepared to comply with instructions in line with a non existant agreement (I dont have to) and have a good mind to charge them storage. However l would much rather just leave the car, send off V5 to change ownership and be done with it and consentrate on getting justice for their mistreatment.   
    • No it isn't funny, but there have been murmurs on Social media, dfesn't take much for twitterati and FaceBork to go off on one. Some in our area have been on about shooting the Goats in case they spread the virus, people in a panic are unpredictable.
    • If she has had a note from the NHS saying she is vulnerable and should shield, then she should stay at home, and there are special regulations for this   If not, she has choices a) go to work; asking for a copy of the risk assessment, and how she will be able to be at less risk than usual b) see a GP about her stress and get signed off c) resign   Lots of people are anxious about the current situation. Lots of people also work alone in offices or far away from people or at home.     What people don't get to do, is expect their employer to keep paying them in full, for no work, because they are anxious. So, she needs to choose. I think b) seems right for her, but tat's just based on what you have said, and no idea what her job is.
    • So next knee jerk cull all pets? Maybe the Urban Fox populastion could spread it  there arfe many viruses that spread between animals,  but don't jump to humans Don't think they would be that draconian

My partner has been on JSA for quite a while now, its harder for him to find a job than others because he cannot read and write very well (though is currently learning but it will take a while)

 

This weekend we found out that a friend who owns a furniture shop has fired his delivery driver, and would be willing to give my partner the job if he had his license. my partner currently has his provisional and has done 10 hours worth of lessons, but both being out of work right now, he hasnt been able to afford to finish the lessons/go in for the test.

 

A while back, the jobcentre told him that if he was guaranteed a job at the end of a course or whatever, they would be able to pay for the course, if given proof that the job was waiting for him. We mentioned this to our friend and he said he would be willing to write a letter stating there is a guaranteed fulltime job waiting if my partner has his full driving license, and to sign any necessary documentation if needed from the jobcentre. but he doesnt know what to actually put on the letter. I'm wondering if anyone else has experience of doing one of these letters, or if theres a template anywhere that can just be altered to obviously change the job description/hours worked/etc to tailormake it for this particular job offer.

i think you will find it difficult to get them to pay for driving licence/test, etc....but worth a go, nothing ventured nothing gained...you just need to confirm that the job is available to you, providing you can supply a driving licence and the job is yours..

you say jcp said they will pay for course? he is on a course at the moment? and does this include driving?

He is not on a course right now. The firm that his brother works for was taking on staff but they needed their security badge and that, and the jobcentre said they would fund that if he brought proof that he had a job at the end of it. Unfortunately the position was filled very quickly, they couldnt hold the job open for him. So we just thought that any kind of qualification or anything that would get him a job would be funded...he can at a push maybe pay for half of it himself, but no way can we afford the whole thing, ot while on benefits.

 

He has to go and sign today so hes going to ask if driving is included. I dont see why not if he is guaranteed a job after it...as he will likely be on JSA for longer than other people due to reading and writing dificulties and it would be a lot cheaper for them in the long run to help him get this job, will cost maybe 300 at the most for the rest of his lessons and his tests. This is 5 weeks or so JSA money.

Nope they dont fund driving lessons. Shame because I think it will take ages for him to find a job now, since hes going to have to do loads of reading/writing courses before most employers would even consider him.
