    • Hi, thanks for posting – and thanks for the offer. Your kind of specialist knowledge would be extremely useful if these topics come up. I understand what you're saying – whether it's possible to have an alert sent to you whenever there is a post mentioning "jewellery". I don't think this is possible – but it's a good idea that we don't have the skills to develop such an application to add onto this forum platform. A partial solution – but probably not very good – would be for you to follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/Real_CAG and if somebody posted jewellery problem and happens to mention "jewellery" in the subject line, then that will be part of the title which is tweeted out then it might be easier for you to keep an eye on. However it would mean that you would overlook other threads which were posted which didn't specifically mention that word in the title. I'm afraid that it's probably rather burdensome if you are busy – but am afraid the anything aim think of at the moment is to visit us regularly and to search on "jewellery" or any other relevant search terms. Not very good really – that if you do find an opportunity to come in and help with your expertise, that would be enormously appreciated

    • Hello and thank you for reply, I really appreciate!    Basically, I logged a complaint with CISAS and then reached out to all the directors Vodafone Limited and Vodafone Group Plc. I researched directors via companies house and guessed their emails. I also reached out to Ms Lamprell via Linkedin where she replied, gave me her email and said to she would have someone look into it. I sent her an email where I tried to present my case as a some sort of consultant giving insight about what I have learned about their customer service and what they could improve, mainly suggesting to hire a really highly trained professional in English and & Welsh law, so that person could take the cases that are being escalated and also train other staff. The next day, Vodafone came back to me with settlement offer. I believe everything has been pushed by Ms Lamprell who really seems a top executive to me (she will apparently receive MBE for her business services) and understands that customers are in fact important stakeholders; although the truth is I did email a few other directors too, so who knows...   In the settlement letter they pretty much negligently ignored almost all my listed points about the things where they were arguably very wrong; but what they did was they admitted some extra things where they were wrong and on that basis waived the charges and on that basis they will reverse the default on my credit file as well. Moreover, the settlement they offered me was based on the distress scale presented by CISAS where £200 is maximum for severe distress and they added £50 so I should get £250 altogether. I accepted the settlement, simply because I am too exhausted with this case.   To be honest I am still upset about the case and don't feel very satisfied given what I have been through because of Vodafone. I do believe if I pushed further and took them to small claims court or if I somehow pressed further through CISAS, I could get compensated for the actual damage caused to me and my business. I would need to play on a higher level with their lawyers for that, and it would require me extra time to study legislation and I would have to take extra risks too. I am honestly very upset about Vodafone's abusive systems, as there must be many vulnerable people going through it and I think it is unlikely it ends up as well for them -- quite the opposite.    Given anyones experience I would love to know how would you evaluate risks of pushing this further and what else could be done.    Thanks so much for all the answers in advance, it's a wonderful forum!

Do you think he'll cry?

 

NoI think he'll be on this forum tomorrow complaining that his boss sacked him unfairly and didn't follow procedure! :lol:

Think about it logically, he's made the job 'untenable' and made himself 'unemployable and lacking in compassion' so sadly I think we are stuck with him, I did hear he might be moved into the Foreign Secretary post - perhaps he can redeem himself there 'stopping the wrong people' come into this country.

yeah a few weeks ago it was clear they lost faith in him.

 

He offered to voluntarily cut the DWP budget even more, but funny enough the chancellor refused, perhaps realising they starting to get the wrong publicity on it.

My hero, the only man with the guts to take on the system and retract all these give-aways left to them by Gordon Brown and Liarbour. The country must live within it's means.

It's not a wind up. Someone has to get this escalating benefits culture under control, it is killing this country.

IDS is going nowhere....Esther Mcvey would be the likely replacement IF he were to go, but looking very unlikely he is going. Would shudder at the thought of Mcvey too. Wasn't she the one who said if you place disabled claimants money at the top of a ladder, they'd all manage to get up there and get it. Nasty nasty woman.

Indeed, like Romanian Gypsies who are over here claiming child benefit, HB, JSA, WTC after paying NOTHING in to the system - yes, it is well under control.

 

Here was me thinking the UKs welfare state was for people who fell on hard times such as illness, redundancy etc not for foreigners to come in to the country and bleed the system dry (as well as health, education and housing)

 

Silly me!

http://www.ukpublicspending.co.uk/numbers - Spending on welfare has dropped over the last five years (£5.6Billoin by central government). Spend on pensions has increased by £33.2Billion in the same period. If you want make any worthwhile cut in the spend on benefits, the answer is simple. Cut the state pension and get rid of the OAPs.

Scrap the state pension, and you will save £110Billion (based on 2015 budget), reducing the ageing population will free up a large chunk of housing stock, and NHS spend will also fall.

I have removed your silly remark tying me with the DM, I see no mention of it at all.

I would say you trolling but you are a staff member on this forum?

 

Maybe its just a lack of intelligence instead, because you appear to be saying the country can afford 100+ billion of tax cuts, writeoffs and bailouts but not the much smaller amount supposedbly saved by IDS. Not to mention brown and blair gave nothing away to the sick and disabled. Under their tenure IB and DLA was tightened up and ESA eventually introduced.

 

Comments such as benefits are killing this country is meaningless, its just a sweeping statement based on propaganda.

We launch an aircraft carrier for which we have no planes in order to fight an enemy that doesn't exist. We fight two discretionary wars that achieved nothing except chaos in the Middle East and a huge pile of corpses. We maintain, at great expense, a nuclear weapon that we'll never, ever use. We're running a deficit that isn't all that high by historical standards, and yet we blame the sick, disabled and unemployed for a crisis that's been entirely invented.

 

I want no further part of this. I'm voting "Yes".

Not a very sensibly thought out post. What would you like, euthanasia of everyone who reaches 65.

I don't think it matters who is in the job - they are singing the party tune, and shooting from the hip.

They will not do an about turn and admit they got it wrong, plus its a poisoned chalice, IDS is going nowhere so leave it to him to keep taking the flack is probably their motto.
