    • Bank the cheque.  No doubt it will bounce - but you never know. When it bounces - that is when you are meant to access their website link and enter your personal details - but of course - DON'T.

    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Typical Kevin Maguire Daily Mirror crap. The rubbish and lies he comes up with is unbelievable.

 

 

That isn't what was said or intended.

Dominic Grieve does not agree with the change that Cameron and some Tories want to see. Grieve was seen as a very good attorney general who was respected as being very knowledgeable about human rights law.

 

Even if the Tories were elected with a majority they would not be able to make the change, as quite a lot of Tory backbenchers won't support it and opposition parties will vote against.

 

It is purely a party political device to pander to the right wing media who keep going on about it.

We could do with some help from you.

didnt the cons say that they were going to repeal/amend the HRA last time, and the time before? didnt happen. cause it cant be done without something else in its place that satisfies the hr requirement for eu membership (unless leave the EU :)). maybe the proposed bill will satisfy. the ECHR has been part of our law for ages prior to the HRA anyway. the HRA just 'codified' it as per eu membership requirements.

one poss option, is for the EctHR to increase its so called margin of appreciation. more of a political matter though.

IMO

They are talking about it being replaced by a UK Bill of Rights. They are using some high profile cases to promote their cause. It sounds like they want to transfer more powers to the UK Supreme Court .

i know. as i posted 'maybe the proposed bill will satisfy' eu requirements.

there are also lots of cases (partic criminal eg re fair trial) where the EctHR has not interfered due to its margin of a.

if we are to remain in the eu, then we would still need to satisfy the clear statement of human rights requirement of such membership (currently the HRA). prior to the hra the echr was already 'incorporated', but such incorporation was not seen as clear enough (was mostly contained in case law).

Yes they want to transfer it to the court where the judges are basically "appointed" by the government and a court which together with its government spout on about how democtratic the UK is, but in reality do not respect human rights and bang on how the normal public must respect the rule of law and decisions of the courts and judiciary, but then they blatantly ignore rulings and judgements when they don't like them. Maybe we should all start doing the same when we don't like any eu laws such as emissions, noise, etc. sorry but think Cameron and his home office ministers deserve places in history with Marx, Mugabe, polpott, putin, Hussein, etc. at least we have a mutated form of free speech, you can say or type what you want as long as it doesn't go against many laws against discrimination, electronic communication, Anything the uk or usa governments don't like, etc but even then this post will most probably get gchq on my posterior.

No they are not and if you look back you will see that the government have lost a lot of cases in the supreme court.

 

 

 

 

This means we have unelected judges running this country and not the government.

I think you may be looking back at before the supreme court. The supreme court justices are appointed by the queen on the recommendation of the prime minister after recommendations by a committee, all the governments cronies in other words, so please don't tell me they are independent.

even before. eg re appointment of QC's, ie potential recorders/judges. things are better, but still depends on the selection panel.
