    • Thanks DX 100   haha i totally  agree with your comment about the page 20    Yes I am awake and been all night w my WS   BUT can I point this very very very impt point please, which I am not sure if it has come to your attention   1. The payment machine and 6 hours and the free parking after 4.30 pm on a Saturday etc....all taken on board.   HOWEVER, and I cant stop myself laughing, this pay machine  he eludes to is based at The Market Shopping Centre Car park , after googling it is in CREWE.  It is not even relevant. They have put in a signage that is not even at the Merry Hill Centre which is in the West Midlands.    The Merry Hill Centre is the one I went to in Dudley, west midlands. All the signages , apart from the one you elude to have the intu Merry Hill logo     The one you refer to is in Crewe. I have never been to Crewe in my life lol so that signage is totally irrelevant    we can play this either way:   1. can take up your line of argument regarding the 6 hours etc. and pretned we are also using the pay machine    OR     2. totally dismiss it as being irrelevant, misleading , wasting the time of everyone by providing irrelevant info. Thats what I have argued in my WS so far. That signage does not belong to inTu Merry Hill            This is akin to someone being on annual leave from work between say 1.10 .2020 and 1.11.2020, and then finding out one of his/her collogues saying,  I saw you leaving work early last week , the 15th of October 2020.   hello !!!, I wasnt even in the country on the 15th of October 2020 !!   essentially thats what the claimant has done . The signage on page 20 doesnt even belong to the shopping centre I went to   I will log out and carry on with th WS     Thanks again       .   
    • Thank you FTMDave. As you can see from the time now I have had a nightmare getting questionnaire answered due to scanner problems, it is up there now though. I do not have proof of breakdown as the alternator was bought from a breakers yard near Chelmsford. I remember it well as they sold me the wrong one on the Saturday and I had to go back in my mechanic friends vehicle on Sunday as I had broken the original alternator getting it off.

    • 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!

Something interesting to consider with regard to the 'bedroom tax':

 

We have a neighbour who lives on his own in a three bedroom social housing property. He works from home and pays his rent. He uses the other two rooms for stock.

 

Another neighbour lives on his own also in a three bedroom social housing property. Like the former he also works and pays his rent.

 

Yet another neighbour who is a pensioner lives in a two bedroom house and will be exempt.

 

Now considering that social housing rent is on average cheaper than the private sector why should they all not be forced to downgrade!!! It is not right when the primary reason for the 'bedroom tax' is to free up houses!!!

 

 

As for the MP' s, Councillor's etcetera, why don't they set an example and scrap expenses!!! Don't quote the usual c**p about it being part of the 'job entitlement' and 'all above board', just do the MORALLY CORRECT THING AND DON'T CLAIM THEM YOU SCROUNGING S***S!!!

Dear lord, may I say maybe you shouldn't worry about what others are doing and concentrate on your own life and stop being so biter about others? It's this mentality that is whats helping turn people against each other and help get this bloody awful government what they want.

 

Chill out hon.

Well that just goes to show how little you actually know about this subject.

 

So what am I missing then? Giving millionaires a tax break yet again is supposed to boost the economy? I see it as an enabling system to allow them to salt more cash away in offshore accounts.

But I'm prepared to defer to your superior knowledge, and in the light of that no doubt you will educate me as to how this bit of legislation helps.

Out of the 5000 I'm sure there are some that could get a mortgage and buy their own place, another lot could move out of Newcastle, some more could private rent and a huge chunk of them will just pay the £14 a week and be done with it. Can't afford the £14 a week? Well some will cut down on things like Sky TV, drinking, smoking that costs a fortune, buying the cheaper brand of food the list is almost endless on how to get over this.

 

People can and will adapt. This time next year nobody will care. It will all be forgotten and there will be something new to moan about.

Daily mail rhetoric alert! Why do people like you trot out the same tired old propaganda, it's frankly boring and demonstrates a lack of independent thinking, you obviously believe everything you read.

How much does his wife earn (if he's married) and he will have stacks in the bank, - so he probably could for a while.

Plus he would put in for expenses at about £500 a week.:)

Bedroom tax is a good idea along with the 50p tax rate being scrapped.

 

 

no bedroom tax is not a good idea, axeing MP's expenses and perks is a good idea though :)

Apparently, (I've lost count of the amount of times I've heard this) he claimed £40 for one breakfast?

 

I would like to see him try living on £51 a week too. But it has to be for a year or so for him to see how difficult it is.

Bedroom tax is a good idea ...

 

But there will be smaller places once the people that need bigger move out.

 

On this occasion, no, I don't think you've helped at all. So, if you don't mind, I'll not be adding to your reputation by pressing the black starry thing.

Perhaps, with your incredible lack of empathy, the Benefits Forum isn't the place for you ...

During Labour's government, they permitted the following abuses of the Legal aid System.

 

It costs the taxpayer nearly £5million a year to monitor him.

 

 

Well the tory party are no strangers to wasting tax payers money like the west coast rail fiasco costing £50 million not to mention the torys have also spent millions trying to deport Abu Qatada.

 

I dont know why the government are making a fus and wrongly accusing him of being a terrorist. Do they base this on evidence obtained by torture? Yes, then they support evidence gained by torture.

Innocent til proven guilty no?

Leave the bloke alone I say. He has not asked the tax payer to put police outside his house has he?

Anyway its a bit rich these puppets in the theatre of westminster calling him a terrorist while during this decade more than a million innocent women and children have been killed by western troops sent by them.

 

We can all sling mud around at the torys and at labour.

If your neighbours pay their own rent and don't receive HB, then they are not affected by the bedroom tax at all.

There was a series of programmes on telly a few years ago about poverty and a few MP's including IDS where invited to live on single adult income support rate for a few weeks to see if they could do it ..

 

Guess who duct out at the start of the series ?

Please use the quote system, So everyone will know what your referring too, thank you ...

Another one

 

 

You have taken the bait hook line and sinker.

 

The government could deport him tomorrow but they choose not to.

Why?

Because they have an ulterior motive.

 

Firstly the government complain that they cant deport this dangerous terrorist because of silly european human rights.

The propaganda media whip up a public frenzy causing an outrage by the public that this man cant be deported.

The government then come up with a cunning plan. Yes we will stop these stupid european human rights that hamper our courts, freedom and security.

The public cheer, yay we want our human right taken away,,yay yay yay for Dave!

 

Human rights taken with public support.

Talk about sleep walking off a cliff! Lol

 

That my friends is politics.
