    • So today I received two claim forms. Interesting how tm legal are keen to rush into this as they didn't respond to my paploc response and my requests for all the information including cca agreement etc. Guess they probably lost this in the pile and think this will result in a backdoor ccj
    • OK - thank you. I understand the concept of LIP, and the need to keep my claim as simple and straightforward as possible. The legal arguments presented in what I called my skeleton statement were already in the original template I downloaded from this site. In that document I opened with "I am not proposing to set out the sequence of events." Might it be worthwhile for me to include a very brief timeline at that point, which would perhaps then allow it to become my witness statement? Or do you consider two separate documents are required? 
    • BF do you know where the instruction for skeleton has come from? Its just WX + docs. Do you think a skeleton is needed if the only issue in dispute is the legality of the exclusion terms. it seems excessive as well as wx no?   ah yes good point with LIP wx format i didnt think about the LIP judge softhand

    • 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.

Labour have not stated whether they plan to reverse the Bill which will be a parliamentary Act should they win a majority at the next general election.

 

Labour wont repeal anything, they are all mouth and trousers, or gobshytes to put it into plain English. They have come up with nothing. Flat nosed Miliband and Fat bellied Balls, what a pair, all they can do is attempt to make political remarks and throw insults.

 

The 'No more boom and bust' clown brigade.

So now we're political on CAG. Wrong place for making your mouth go. We don't know what will happen when Labour return to Government! Certainly no need for insults.

Agree. This is being used as a Political football by both sides of the argument. State finances in every country including the UK are partly used by governments to help people that may support their party. This will always be the case, whatever they say. Both Labour and Tories are always very reluctant to touch pensioners benefits, as older people are mostly likely to vote. This is why there was a huge argument at the last election, when Labour claimed that the Tories wanted to end pensioners free bus passes, TV licences and winter fuel allowances. You may remember Cameron being very angry about this and this is why the Tories have kept their pledge of maintaining these benefits, even though it costs a lot of money.

 

It is about spending choices. It currently costs the UK government over £7bn per year to fund higher rate tax relief on pensions. This change to keep benefits rises capped at 1% will only save the government £3.5bn over 4 years.

We could do with some help from you.

Who is this 'we', the poster has his name clearly displayed on the left.

 

I will bring this thread up again in a few years when Labour are in power and 'not' reversing any policies.

My MP is IDS, so I think I already know how he voted

 

You have my sympathy.

 

Does the name being in that list mean they voted yes? My MP's name is in that list. He did once claim that genuine people have nothing to worry about. Yeah right.

Well my MP, Labour's Margaret Hodge, didn't appear to vote at all. She's always in my local paper highlighting how the poor in her constituency are going to suffer under the new welfare rules. Pity the actions don't live up to the words.

The UK economy may well be in a worse state in 2015 than it was in 2010, as government debt has been building up. Will hit £1.5 trillion by 2015 and if interest rates go up then these spending changes will be looked upon as generous. At the moment the UK government can make these changes, as interest rates are low, but if you look at what is happening elsewhere in Europe where they are paying 4% or more interest on government debt, they are having to slash benefits. Some analysts are predicting that the UK could be downgraded to A rating from AAA and as a result interest rates may rise by 1% or more. If that happens, then any party in power will be implementing cuts, not spending increases.

 

I get pretty fed up of both sides picking fights, using people who are just managing to get by. One thing that Liam Byrne said that I agreed with, is that parliament should look at the whole amount of money spent by DWP, to see whether the money can be more fairly distributed. I am not sure that governments over the last 30 years or so have made the best decisions and we have an expensive system to administer that does not deliver to those most in need.

We could do with some help from you.
