    • Hang on, I'll get into trouble for this but really! 12 years paying a DD you nothing about.................... and then you blame D&G. They would have notified you at your last known address or email at each renewal, every year, with ample opportunity to cancel each year.   12 Years!!   Bad things happen in the world of CAG but you really must bear some of the responsibility here.   H    
    • Should have access to all the data on the account tomorrow.  latest response from Barclays.   Dear    Thank you for your patience while this matter has been under review.   I’m afraid I’ve not yet been able to get the answers I need from the relevant team to allow me to provide you with any more information. However, please be assured I will continue to work on this and I will provide you with a further update no later than 29 January 2021.   Kind regards   Customer Relationship Manager Barclays
    • I know it would be a hassle to put all that in. However certain things that help your case and destroy their WS would probably mean that even Simple Simon as stupid and greedy as he is, would probably decide that yours was one case that he did not want to challenge in Court. If he lost on the relevant land part, his whole business at Southend airport would be over.    He would have many motorists who have paid coming back to him plus claiming GDPR payments and every other airport that they control would probably have a claim against him too..   So you are best to hit him with a strong WS to stop him from going to Court. Will it stop him if you include all that. It should do but he may have the chutzpah to think that he can argue his way out of it.  So your choice.  
    • Thanks for that, point one just confirms what I thought, I will get back to work on it with those suggestions in mind. Cheers
    • Two quick and immediate points:   1. Do NOT get your employer to suggest you were exhausted. You shouldn't drive whilst exhausted and it aggravates the offences. But in any case, since you are pleading guilty to them it doesn't matter. The circumstances of each offence are not relevant when the court considers your EH argument. By that time you have been convicted of them and how or why they happened is not a consideration.    2. Instead your employer's letter to the court should concentrate on the "Hardship" that others (e.g. the company or your colleagues) will suffer if you are banned. It should also cover why no alternatives are available to them (e.g. are your skills and knowledge scarce such that they cannot easily be replaced; can they not train somebody else quickly to do your job). That sounds harsh but your employer will be asking the court to accept that they will suffer hardship. Part of doing that is to demonstrate that no practical alternatives are available.   Remember, you will get three points for each offence whatever mitigation you offer for them - that is the minimum. So you don't need to concentrate on that. Concentrate on explaining the exceptional hardship that you or others will suffer.

    • 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!

Much of what is wrong with the NHS can be placed at the door of the politicians, who have interfered in the way it is run, and private companies who have ripped-off the NHS and other government departments, aided and abetted by right-wing politicians who, more often than not, are "consultants" or directors of these companies. What we badly need are laws to force MPs to relinquish their links with any corporate or other organisation that could compromise their position, charitable organisations excepted.

Another thing I would like to add is about the tax avoiders someone mentioned. The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) is the federal agency that receives everyone's federal tax, and needs to go away in my opinion. Americans pay Federal tax to the IRS and State tax to the state in which they live. They also pay sales tax to the city where they live. Then there is property tax. school tax, tax, tax, tax! If you look at a phone bill, there are so many misc. taxes, people just pay without any idea what they are for. I think the IRS needs to go away. There should be a flat tax. I think all should pay. If you buy a big screen tv, you should pay an extra tax no matter what income tax bracket you fall in. That way everyone pays. Like I said before, over half of Americans pay no tax at all. They supposedly don't make enough to pay. Many of those very people have nice cars and huge tvs, etc. Many also get free medical and financial help for many other things. If you look closely at your power bill, there is a fee that goes to those considered low income. No one asks if that person with the bill wanted to contribute. It is just taken. It is no wonder people are upset. I often think you are better off poor. Put an extra tax on purchases and everyone will pay. Back in the Clinton years, they tried to put what they called a "luxury tax" on everyone. Supposedly if you bought a high end item that was considered not necessary they would hit you with an extra huge tax. People with money just considered it a penalty for doing well. I don't begrudge anyone for doing well if they came by it honestly. It is the American dream. Luxury boats and yachts was one business hit hard. All those that could afford such nice things, could also go elsewhere to buy them. The industry collapsed. Many hard working people lost their jobs. Those that have that kind of money will always find a way around it. One of our senators that ran for president (I have personal knowledge of what a horrible human being his is) lived and was a senator in Massachusettes. His name was John Kerry. It was found out that to avoid paying taxes to his own state, he bought and registered his luxury yacht in Rhode Island where the taxes were cheaper. Taxachusettes is a nickname for Massachusetts. Those who can, will find ways to skirt the system. All the regular folks just continue watching their paychecks vanish in front of their very eyes. There have been people that have won the lottery and ended up on the news. Apparently they couldn't find a law to discontinue the lotto winners welfare checks and food stamps. She claimed she had several houses to manage. She was on the evening news and didn't even seem ashamed.

Our Revenue and Customs deals with tax matters, including Value Added tax, which is charged on most things. There is a team within Revenue and Customs nicknamed The Ghost Squad. They investigate individuals and corporate organisations who avoid and evade tax. Those under investigation are not aware they are under investigation until The Ghost Squad turn up to ask them questions about their tax affairs. And there is no point in trying to lie to them because they have already gathered the evidence to nail you. There is no kidding them and no escape.

If I may I wish to add a dissenting voice to this. I will not be signing this petition as it seems overtly political and of little substance. An open letter containing four rhetorical sentences such as 'We are watching you' and 'We’ll challenge you every step of the way if you try to do our NHS any further harm' is unhelpful and does nothing to describe whatever problems the NHS has, and offers no solutions.

 

For the record I work for the NHS in a soon to be abolished Primary Care Trust. I've seen a lot of change over the years, not least the huge growth and investment in the last decade. Growth and investment is good right? Not really, because the vast increase in spending we saw since 1997 has been squandered. Billions have been wasted on a vast army of middle managers, enhanced GP contracts, failed IT projects and other questionable spending. Very little of that money made its way to where it mattered, the patients. It was a standing joke that the money would have been better served if it had been shoved in the hospital boilers, in that at least it would have had a use in keeping the patients warm.

 

I love the NHS like anyone else but it's in desperate need of reform because we are in no way getting value for money from it. The debate is whether this government's reforms are the right ones, so in that respect Mr Hunt, we are indeed watching you very closely.

Have signed the letter - thanks for the link was 12,xxxxx when I signed - made a comment that GPs should get rid of illegal 0844 numbers and change to 0344 NOW.

 

47 of the Virgin Group Surgerys are 0844 numbers and all are in Breach of their GMS Contract and Practicing illegally they should know better.

 

There are GPs starting 0844 numbers even 23rd Aug this year. Mainly being Mis-sold by 'Fly' companies to GPs that havent a clue about the Telephony Industry - nowhere to turn for Independant Advice - the PCTs havent a clue either.
