    • oh and expanding on one of the core points:   Corbyn said he regrets it took ‘longer to deliver that change than it should,’ but that… ‘the scale of the problem was also dramatically overstated’. - More Corbyn Johnsonite BS   and the point needs making that despite Corbyn claiming it was 'dramatically' less of a problem than those affected and an independent investigation claimed .. he still; at the very least; failed to address that alleged (by him) 'dramatically' lessor problem   Of course, a more accurate although still generous statement would seem to be that Corbyn took ‘longer to fail to deliver that change' .. although IMO - Corbyn rapidly made it worse and actually empowered certain types of racism would perhaps be MOST accurate     Throw them all out NOW Starmer - it will be more damaging if you don't.
    • Well they have 28 days from the date of deemed service. That means, I think that you have to allow two business days from the date of issue of the claim and then add 28 days. So if you issued on the 27 – let's say 28 October. Service would have occurred – let's say 30 October, to be on the safe side. Count 28 days from then. You should be able to enter judgement today – or maybe tomorrow – although it seems a little bit later than it should be. Keep on checking What time of the day on the 27th did you issue it?
    • Hi, just received this sms out of the blue from CDER Group. No idea what it is for and no idea what to do. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated:   "DO NOT IGNORE THIS MESSAGE. An Enforcement Agent may be allocated to your account and your goods may be removed. You can pay now using this link: https://customer.cdergroup.co.uk/portal/paylink/******** or contact CDER Gruop on 0330 107 0023, Ref ******** Security code. If anyone in your home has symptoms of COVID-19, is self-isolating or has been advised to shield, please contact us on 03301070023 before we visit you at home"   As I said, it came out of the blue. I don't think it is a spam message looking on forums, I don't want to call them as they will ask for phone number and address, so how can I find out what debt I owe?   Many thanks
    • Hi, I issued my claim on Oct 27th and Hermes acknowledged it on November 3rd but have not put forward a defence yet I can still not request a default judgement, is this right?
    • oh and thinking that throwing the supporting MPs like Abbott out might force by-elections, some of which might go Tory ... ... its my honest opinion that a few more Tories in parliament now is far FAR FAR less of a danger to Labour than the Corbynistas remaining in their midst.

The Distress Warrant is not obtained by Capita.

 

The decision to issue a Distress Warrant is one that is taken by the Fines Officer. The Distress Warrant is sent to the relevant enforcement company electronically.

 

There is indeed a requirement to advise the debtor in advance that a Distress Warrant will be issued and this is satisfied by sending a Further Steps Notice to the debtor at the address on the court file.

You have jumped the gun, so to speak, you are quite correct as to what happens after conviction, however, at this stage Mr T.H.E. Occupier has sent Crapita Goon away with a flea in their ear, when he called on the unlicensed property; so the disgruntled salesman swears on oath there is evidence of TV usage even though Mr Occupier has no TV, dopey beak grants the Search Warrant, which Saleman uses along with a tame plod to gain entry and terrorise Mr Occupier into admitting to watching Eastbenders on his Amstrad 1640 PC over his dialup modem. The confession ensures a conviction even though it would be impossible to view a live TV stream over a dialup connection on an Amstrad 1640 PC as it is too old to do any more than type a letter, or run basic software from the 1980s from a floppy disk, it having no graphic capabilities beyond Commander Keen a game from 1991on floppy disk, and could never display or even process digital TV nor has a slot to put a TV card in.

 

This is the sort of shenanigans we are up against with Capita aka TVL. I am not exaggerating BTW

 

This is one of the biggest can of worms the government would rather stay closed as the TV Tax is a money earner for the BBC and Capita, the fines are a revenue stream for HMCS, and their bailiff contractors.

My tv is going to be clearly visible through the front window, the back of it is anyway. And I'm still going to be viewing stuff I've downloaded on it when I get the right connectors. But they won't be proving anything as even if it were hooked up to an aerial system no-one could see the screen from outside.

The BBC must surely be worried at the way in which the electronic age has taken off so quickly. Neither one of my son's has a TV Licence in their homes as they only watch TV through their computers and apparently, this is a common scenario in many homes with "younger" occupants .....

It is important to note that there is currently a Private Members Bill before Parliament that is called the BBC Licence Fee (Civil Debt) Bill 2013-2014 which had it's First Reading in June and the Second Reading reading of the Bill is scheduled for 22nd November 2013.

 

The Bill is to make provision to decriminalise the non payment of the BBC Licence fee.

A step in the right direction, however abolition of the TV tax, and yes it has been admitted in Parliament that it IS a tax, would be better with an opt in fee like a subscription may be better.

We could do with some help from you.

The BBC have been after extending the TV license to include computers and devices for years, and they will seize on this Irish idea like a pitbull on a bone.
