    • Well as you're implying, UB, you're going to sign a better trade deal with a large economic bloc than with a small one, aren't you?   I don't think there's any chance of any deal based on a 'special relationship' while Biden's in the White House, but as I said I think Trump would have stitched us up in the end anyway.
    • Atleast 7 years, but they have already done some of the work. I think Liam Fox started this a few years ago.   My guess is that it will take 3 to 4 years before a proper trade deal is signed. There might be a mini trade deal before then limited to a few sectors.   The issue for the Brexit supporters might be when the EU and US sign a trade deal, before there is a UK/US deal. And when this finally happens UK only obtains same deal as EU. There is no reason for US to agree better terms with the UK and they would not do so  because US sees UK as part of Europe.

    • They've estimated 10 years to agree a trade deal haven't they, UB? I think the Tories believed Trump when he said the UK would be at the front of the queue and have a quick trade deal and thought it would look good as an announcement after Brexit happened. It didn't dawn on them until quite late on that Donald might lose the election.   Why they ever thought US negotiators would do any favours is beyond me and now you see how other countries have asserted themselves over trade deals, the Tories global ambitions are starting to look naive.
    • It takes a long time to agree trade deals because there are so many aspects to consider.    UK companies trade with US consumers including US Government every day of the year, with the previous trade arrangements still in place.   There is no hurry to agree a new trade deal. It takes thousands of civil servants in both Governments to go into every aspect and they just don't have the people available to do this work.

    • 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!

YouTube and security...

 

It seems like everything that can be broken has been on there

 

Having a spring clear out and finally got around to our safe (lost keys and batteries dead) wondered what to do with it as its bolted to the floor and hard to move

 

5 mins later after watching a video on YouTube managed to open it by banging on the top while twisting the dial...

 

Now I don't keep anything valuable in there anyway but even if I had I would be reconsidering it

 

Don't get me wrong I can pick locks, bypass passwords, etc due to bad history with boredom but I never thought of my own safe being that easy

 

Makes you wonder if youtube should be allowing that sort of video

Now you're giving me evil thoughts labrat, makes me think I might make a visit to an acquaintance who keeps a fair few diamonds in her safe! :madgrin:

 

Happy new year!

 

But I agree, far too much on these Youtube video's which help the not so friendly characters out there.

 

Now, about that locking picking experience you say you have!! :wink:

Thoughts in my day? - How many free days do we have before we are inundated with Brexit all over again? Hasn't this last week or so been wonderfully silent on all that?

 

Let's hope the imbeciles left in charge to sort this do so in an educated way....!

Previous post about opening safes made me think of a useful way of opening those stuck on lids i.e jam jars etc. knock the lid with something like a spoon or gently with a rolling pin, once or twice should do it, can also hold jar and knock lid on counter top. The lid should then be free to turn open. To date always works for me. It breaks the air seal.

Well went to the caravan for the first time in two months, mould all over the cushions

 

Turns out we had accidentally blocked all the air vents... Lesson learnt unblocked vents, heating on, cushions cleaned

 

However I did find a dozen cans of cider in one of the cupboards - bit of an odd twang but seems ok

On March 24th we had to say goodbye to our  Dalmatian, Jazz :(,  we got im when he was 3 and he passed aged 13 and half, was such a shock even though he has not been really himself since we lost his pal 2 years ago.

Had to have emergency vet out and  make the heartbreaking  decision to PTS  :(

Currently wondering what noise a 3d printer will make if launched via an upstairs window... 

 

It's not worked fully for a couple of months so I brought a new nozzle for it, only to get the wrong one 6 nozzles later and I found although its advertised with a mk 10 it's actually a V6. 

 

Now I know its that I've got parts on the way but it's still a bit of a mick take

Hi labrat.

 

Is that your name on the book? If so, you might want to remove it.

I don't think it will kill me, I have no major issues on here - works social media team is aware of my account and we have an agreement that I don't post on any of their issues 

 

Plus I missed the editing window... 

 

If admin think it's best to remove it there's a new version below
