    • Vennells evidence starts this morning at 09.45. Nick Wallis has made an interesting observation in his blog yesterday or today that yesterday's witness, Alwen Lyons, implied that forensic accountants Second Sight weren't doing a good job on their investigation of SPMs' complaints about Horizon. Nick's theory is that not being good at a job seems to be telling the Post Office things it doesn't want to hear. And that having been told things they didn't want to hear about the Horizon system, that training was terrible and their investigators and prosecuters weren't good enough, they decided the solution was to sack Second Sight and buy more expensive advice in the hopes of getting an answer they liked.    
    • Thanks for the quick response! the way they’ll have found so far is LinkedIn, I use this for business and work etc. I’ll have to look into the settings and see if I can make this more private I have no other social media.    so to confirm, best step is to directly mail my address to emirates and HSBC directly then ignore idrww and judge and priestly? should I be telling both the uk collection agencies that I’m only going to be dealing with the banks directly and not with them?    would you recommend creating a monthly payment plan to the banks or not?    Thanks, 
    • Hey, I had around 40k credit card and now they say I owe 135. I suggest doing what we’re all doing here. Ignore. My debt was from 2017 and I’ve just had the same rounds of letters every year since x

    • There are various interesting snippets in this. Minister Johnny Mercer was working on a train recently and another passenger took screenshots of his laptop screen with a memo to No 10 with a few complaints. This one isn't a surprise but seems to show that the Tories are deliberately suppressing the student vote. 'The cabinet minister complained that he had been trying to persuade No 10 to let veterans use their IDs at polling stations “for months without success”. He said he had found out the plans had been blocked by the prime minister’s special advisers because they could “open the floodgates” to allow students to use their cards too. In the event some veterans were turned away from polling stations when they went to vote. No 10, he said, was failing to listen to him and other MPs. “Feels like even I cannot have any impact on the grid/ government comms,” he said.' No 10 neglecting Rishi Sunak’s more popular colleagues, laments minister ARCHIVE.PH archived 21 May 2024 20:20:50 UTC

    • 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.

Late last year I was placed in the ESA WRAG group after I went to appeal and I was recommended not to be reviewed for 1 year.

 

One year later I received a new ESA50 form, I filled it in and sent it off. My mental health has deteriorated since I filled in the last ESA50 in 2012. I put in all my symptoms and problems and included psychiatrists, doctors etc details to be contacted at the end of the form.

 

Two weeks ago I received a random letter informing me they were going to pay an additional £43 in respect of my ESA claim into my bank with no reason why. I ignored it thinking it would be some winter payment allowance or something. Yesterday I received my ESAin my bank but it was £230 something instead of my usual £193 (after deductions).

 

Have I been moved from WRAG to Support Group? I'm confused. I've been worrying that I will be forced onto JSA for weeks now but this is strange - it is weekend now so I can't call them

No - it just gave the last digits of my account number and sort code with the amount of £43. ESA is listed at the top but nothing else.

 

I had my usual fortnightly ESA payment yesterday but it was exactly £43 extra also. :???:

Have you been awarded employment n support with the support component:?: Looks like it. :-)

 

Difference between work related activity component (£28.45) and support component (£34.80) is £6.35 per week.

 

Enhanced disability premium paid automatically with an income related award of the support component is £15.15 per week.

 

£6.35 + £15.15 = £21.50 per week x 2 = £43.00 every two weeks.

 

You can check the figures at;

Your award letter:?: Finding that could take a bit longer:roll:

 

Best wishes, Margaret.

Many thanks for that Margret.

 

Out of interest....what is enhanced disability premium and how do you qualify? Does everyone in support group get that?

 

Thanks again

Yes, everyone in the SG (and who has an income related award of ESA) gets the Enhanced Disability Premium. It's also paid to those in the WRAG or assessment phase if they have an IR award of ESA and are in receipt of DLA Higher Rate Care.

Thanks for the reply antone.

 

I guess that as I have never received DLA then the last part in the quote does not apply to me and that it is safe to say that I have been moved from WRAG to support group?

 

Thanks for all the help. I just wish that the DWP / ATOS was as helpful and sent me the correct paper work rather than making this a guess game.

 

Thanks all x

To be fair to the DWP, they do send out a lot of letters and they don't all arrive at the same time. If you've progressed to the Support Group you'll get confirmation in writing at some point. But, to be absolutely sure, give them a ring on Monday. Sounds promising.
