    • Even a rubbish, unredacted photo would be OK.  We can sort out any problems at this end. Speed is of the essence.  Continue to defy the court as she is doing and it will be CCJ, knackered credit file for six years and threats of bailiffs turning up.
    • No not yet Stu, i've put in a formal complaint and just got to wait for reply, emptied the garage with a couple of mates, all in back yard covered with tarpaulin and they never turned up to put lock on garage. Annoying to say the least.             Thanks for asking ,     
    • “ Gove says 'its a Novel virus so its ok to make up stories like 'its man made and 'we were prepared for the wrong or indeedprepared for any virus and 'How could we know spreadingrespiratory virus would spread and infect people.”   it’s OK Jugg Mr Icke will see you shortly  you’ll be telling me next The King and Kate were members of the EDL all along 🤣
    • In that case, it's crazy to me that part of their defence includes the following: 2.52. ‘The amount of Full Cover which you have taken out for a Parcel, if at all, will be the extent of our liability to you for any Loss or Damage to your Parcel.’ 2.53. ‘Full Cover’ is defined as ‘optional enhanced compensation that you may,for a fee, take out when you submit an order.’ 2.54. 26. Accordingly, the Contract terms limits the Defendant’s liability for loss or damage to a parcel (in contract and/or negligence) to a particular value (as determined by clause 5), for the loss or damage to goods. That  compensation value is the lesser of £20 or the value of the damaged/lost goods plus postage. 2.55. 27. The Claimant did not opt to increase the level of compensation for The Parcel and therefore pursuant to the terms of the Contract the Claimant is entitled to maximum compensation in the sum of £23.44. -> If they know they can't do this, why include it in their defence.  THe second part I'm worried about is this section: 2.24. 20. The twenty first paragraph of the Particulars of Claim is noted. It is denied that the Claimant is entitled to £169.00 in respect of the Parcel. It is the Defendant’s primary position that the Claimant is entitled to £23.44 in respect of the Parcel under the terms of the Contract. Without prejudice to the Defendant’s primary position, the Claimant valued the Parcel at £150.00 when ordering the Defendant’s delivery services. The Defendant requests evidence from the Claimant as to the reasoning for the difference in valuations from the Claimant. -> like I said, I have proof of receipt of the actual price of the jacket, I had email correspondence with the brand asking if they have received my jacket and included the EVRI tracking number. The parcel is also clearly labelled to return back to the store.  I've also shared all of this, and even provided the receipt in my claim lost parcel to EVRI It's a shame I put the estimated value of the item when posting back, rather than the exact. I was in a rush and just put a rough figure I had from memory (again, lesson learned)
    • Thanks for letting us know. It always helps to get feedback. I'm surprised at the addition of the surcharge. Yes, it must be imposed by law but the usual way to get round it is to make the fine £72 and the surcharge £28. You could argue that if they accepted that you did comply with the conditions of the offer you should not be disadvantaged at all and there is adequate mechanism for that. Their Legal Advisor (the person sitting in front of them) should have advised them accordingly. All in all a decent - if slightly incorrect - outcome and appealing against the sentence is probably not worth the hassle. As you say, "lessons learned" (but of course you won't be caught speeding again, will you?  😀

    • 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.

Barring if the Tribunal making an error of law in their decision there is nothing you can do about the Tribunal decision. If you are within 1 month of the decision you can write and make a request for a statement of reasons, which can give an indication of an error of law.



Unfortunately you appear to fall foul of the time limiting of contributory ESA, which means in WRAG you can only receive 365 days of contribution based ESA. If you then do not qualify for income based ESA, as you don't, then I'm afraid there is nothing you can do at present unless your condition has deteriorated since your last ATOS assessment - in which case you can request a supersession based on your worsening condition and will have to have a new assessment and possibly another appeal if you fail to get into support group. Apart from this, you will be periodically reassessed.



What grounds did you feel you qualified for the support group? Why did the Tribunal say they didn't agree?
