    • Hi,  Here's my draft and please feel free to give me suggestion: ========== Dear Sir/Madam, TFL case number: **** I would like to thank TFL for providing me the opportunity to explain my behaviour. I realised the stupidity of what I have done and wish to seek a resolution to this matter. I have no valid excuse for this action and I am extremely sorry and deeply regret my action. I hope you will accept my sincere apologies. Nothing can justify my action. I am aware that TFL are only able to operate if everyone pays their fare correctly and I feel so guilty about attempting to breach public trust. This has caused me sleepness nights and raised my anxieties. I have history of anxiety. This has been a hard lesson learnt. I have never been in trouble with the law in the past and I ensure that I won’t be in the future. I am and will be using my oyster card (PAYG). I would like to humbly appeal to TFL to allow me to settle this matter out of court and avoid going to prosecution given the adverse consequences it can have on me and my family. I am very concerned that prosecution for the first time and I would like to make restitution for my action. Having a criminal offense on my record will have detrimental consequences on me. I have always been a law abiding person and have no previous offences.     I would really appreciate if I can be given the opportunity to pay for any unpaid fares plus any charges and/or administrative cost which have been incurred by TFL due to this incident. I am sincerely remorseful and ashamed of myself, and I fully appreciate the severity and stupidity of my transgressions. Again, I would like to offer my sincerest apologies. Yours Faithfully, My Name -----------------------------  
    • My wife dropped my daughter off at a kids party space on a trading estate and didn't think to look for signs as she parked outside the establishment. We got a £60 (reduced early payment) fine. Although now the signs are to be seen its a lot of money is this something we must now pay? Attached is the notice and the signs. Looks obvious now but when you are driving to a party warehouse on a trading estate and looking for the place itself its easy to miss this and especially when it seems logical to park there and walk in. My wife was there for 30 minutes. Thanks in advance Sam          A4.pdf
    • That's such a perverse judgment its almost unbelievable Looks like totally ignored everything and just gave judgement on something that's not compulsory as in name a driver or appeal did judge confuse having to name a driver in a motoring offence case like speeding with the civil?
    • The OH had letter from Resolvecall regarding a very old LTSB debt at the start of the month. Knowing it was SB, I sent off the SB letter to Intrum who owns the debt. They responded to the OH last week when I was away. They basically said speak to Resolvecall and the standard letter, we'll pop to your house malarkey.... Just ignore as Intrum own the debt and from the looks of it have ignored the SB letter? The OH gets twitchy with these things, thanks PM.

    • 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.

In yet another humiliating court defeat for Iain Duncan Smith, thousands of sacked Jobcentre staff may be entitled to compensation due to an employment tribunal ruling that they were unlawfully sacked.

 

Story http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/jobcentre-illegally-sacked-thousands-of-workers/

 

As the article states I wonder if IDS will attempt to retrospectively change the law on this one.

Two former Jobcentre staff, supported by PCS Union, took the department to an employment tribunal, which ruled they should have been legally paid redundancy. Thousands of workers sacked by Iain Duncan Smith could now be entitled to claim compensation which is likely to cost up to £1 million.

 

Good for them! I hope they screw the buggers over this. :D

Would it not be very interesting if the figure was £130 million? Imagine the uproar if JCP workers won the same payout that JSA claimants were denied.

This is a pretty basic mistake - I worked for a small charity where everyone was on yearly fixed term contracts - some people for many years. The charity knew to pay redundancy in those circumstances. Very silly mistake.

My first love was a redhead so I take your point but when I last met Karen, she said she was "SO INTO ME" and I take her word on that. but there you go, still waiting for the doughnuts though.

What concerns me with this is it is yet another blunder by IDS.

 

Yes those sacked won and may now claim compensation followed all the others sacked.

 

But who is going to pay for this blunder NOT IDS, NOT the GOVERNMENT but the TAXPAYER AGAIN.

Stu, yes. Jokes about Karen Gillan aside, it does seem obvious that IDS gets to screw things up and expect everyone else to pay for his mistakes.

 

The obvious solution to this would be for IDS and the DWP to obey the law. Hey, I'm a dreamer. But I'm not the only one.

I, not that long ago, had the grave misfortune of finding myself in the same room as IDS (I say room, I mean hall). He had two “thugs” with him for protection but the thing that got me was his aloofness, arrogance and insularity, if that is a word, did more to keep anyone away from him than his “minders” could ever do.

His wife was quite happy to mingle, talk and drink a lot of red wine.

Having seen IDS at close quarters, I do not see him relating to anyone who needs to claim benefits of any sort. He seemed to be a man so possessed of his own (self)righteousness that nothing will touch him. Certainly not those in dire straits due to his “reforms”.

No, I am sure, IDS will pay for nothing, he will never be held to account, he will do his dirty work and probably end up in the House of Lords.

 

 

I want to take this opportunity to apologise to all CAG members for not spitting in his face. I did not want to dirty my spit.

Now come on the ultimate killing machine and rulers of the universes had one little flaw....

 

They couldn't manage stairs!

 

It took 30 years before the BBC retro fitted them with little rockets to manage this simple task.

 

Hang on I think I've just described the latest virtual aid for ESA and PIP..... Rocket powered wheel chairs they don't exist yet (well they do I've seen the youtube video) but affordable and on the NHS.....

And indeed, it won't matter whether or not you actually have a rocket powered wheelchair. Your assessment will be based on the assumption that you can fly whenever you feel like it.

Before we go all Peter Pan and Tinkerbell.

 

The question still needs to be asked;

 

would a Darlek be turned away from an ATOS ESA/PIP assessment center on health and safely grounds as they would not be able to use the stairs reliably or safely in the event of a fire when the lifts are stopped?
