    • Oh dear Business secretary tested for Covid-19 after feeling ill during Commons speech   "During one vote, the minister voted straight after the culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, and immediately before the Labour MP Stephen Kinnock. He was also one of a few ministers who attended full cabinet, a source said. In another vote on the substantive motion, Sharma queued to vote immediately after Saqib Bhatti, the Conservative MP for Meriden, and just before Paul Scully, the Tory MP for Sutton and Cheam. "     As the Mp's experience the Mogg supermarket Conga, some queueing for the very first time since waiting to enter their initiation chamber and the waiting pigs head.   'Completely unacceptable that we should queue. I feel like a plebs at Morrisons must' was rumoured to be heard from some.     https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/06/02/mogg-conga-mps-just-tried-mad-new-voting-system-total-chaos/  
    • Hi, we've received your message pointing out that this thread has received no replies and also asking us to delete it. First of all have to say that I'm very sorry that nobody has come back and commented on your letter – which looks very thorough and obviously because it appears that you've now had a result (according to your message) it has been very effective. Once again, I'm very embarrassed that you had no response to this thread. It's extremely interesting and I don't know why it has passed us by – except that everything is very difficult at the moment for everyone due to the crisis, and a rise in the number of problems been posted in other parts of the forum. You shouldn't have to do it of course, but I suppose that if we had received a contact message earlier pointing out that this thread needed attention, then we would have dealt with it. Once again, you shouldn't need to do that and I'm sorry. I'm afraid that we don't delete material. Everything contributes to the knowledge base and your circumstances seem to be so interesting they are especially useful to other people who might find themselves in the same position – and that's what makes our collection of stories here so useful. Finally, I have to congratulate you on the result. It would be very helpful if you would come and tell everybody exactly what has been agreed – and you think that it is a really fair result given the amount of time and trouble and embarrassment you have been put to. If we understand what has now been promised to you, we might be able to suggest some further move by you to claim some kind of compensation – but maybe you have managed that already. Once again, well done on having achieved a resolution of this problem. It's very good that you managed to get Vodafone to listen – most often they don't and that is one of the problems about this company. Please do let us know what happened
    • What makes you think they wont simply rewrite history, claim they did everything right, and blame labour despite the Tory majority? Mind you, that majority is undoubtedly Carbuncle labours fault     Its happening constantly, why would you think it will be different? eg: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jun/03/britain-could-change-immigration-rules-for-hong-kong-citizens   Johnson spins a headline lie and swears its true despite his ministers going ... errr and the reality clearly going to be something different that Johnsons trumpesque headline

Hi All

 

Just had a call from a mate re a LO he recieved for poll tax, 1st and 2nd v isits by bailiff been and gone, he asked the B if he could pay by instalments, B replied pay me £130.00 now and £50 per month, but I will need to make a 3rd visit and then levy on goods etc, Matey dosent want this agreement.

 

He asked council to accept his offer they refused and said you must pay bailiff and not us, he asked to pay full balance £600 ish the council said you must pay the B along with his costs.????

 

Are there any regs he can quote them?

assuming you're in england

 

see national debtline website

 

look in that 1st drop down menu for plenty of solid data

 

[national debtline do separate sections for scotland, n.ireland]

 

not a big fan of liability orders for council tax

 

off top of head, it would help, bizarrely, if they had another debt - if the council tax bill straddles 2 council tax years THIS COUNTS as 2 debts

Then they're not unlikely to qualify to repay using an administration order [or perhaps a "debt arrangement scheme"..or is that only north o' the border? I can't recall but will look it up, during this week & post to you if it's relevant]

see national debtline website

which might mean no charges, bailiff or otherwise

 

Poll tax? do you mean real old-time polltax, or are you sarcastically referring to council tax?

There is a statute which exempts council tax liabilities from the standard english 6 year liability limit,

but never heard of one about poll tax

[in scotland such a polltax action could well happen as the liability limit in 30 years!]

 

Of course, it is worth examining the case to see if there is a viable service complaint which could be flung at the council

[are they vulnerable by way of infirmity, young family, would be due another kind of waiver....see CAB website

]

 

good luck, & there will be a posting in the next couple of days on my own thread

on my own latest adventures

exposing, arguably, evidence not entirely unsuggestive of practices in the local taxation services sector

which, while dubious, may be acceptable of the private sector

but quite probably will prove entirely unacceptable of the public sector

 

IMPORTANT - if they [decide to] hurry and settle, say, paying the bailiffs [in an administration order the monies go via an intermediary - you must take care with bailiffs & vitally DON'T SIGN ANYTHING A BAILIFF TRIES TO GET YOU TO SIGN !

you will have your plan of action soon enough for them] it is strongly recommended that you demand receipts -

and, of course, don't be cheap but use plenty of royal mail recorded delivery, & keep those track n trace numbers

 

Incidentally, if the 1st heard of a liability order is when it already exists, then you didn't receive the statutory 14 day notice they have to send [ha!] before the hearing - this is grounds itself for a service complaint to the council - although a pretty lame one, it will get the ball rolling, and you can demand they stop the bailiffs enforcement program while the complaint continues

so, such a service complaint would be that

"while it is recognised that the council may have met their statutory obligation concerning the 14 day notice before a liability order hearing, they only did so minimally, and as in this instance the service user did not receive this 14 day notice, there is a shortfall between the standard of service received by the service user, and the standard of service the council would prefer to provide, as aspired to by the council's statutory obligations"

 

or something - this buys maybe 4 weeks breathing space to build a proper 2nd stage complaint, if you have one

[hint, you may have one]

Usual advice MrW

 

ring the Council and ask:

1 - How many Liability Orders there are

2 - how much each one is for

3 - how much is outstanding on each

4 - when they were obtained

5 - what period of time they cover

6 - the date they were passed on for enforcement

7 - does the figure quoted the bailiffs fee

8 - what is that fee.

From what you say £42.50 will buy the bailiff lunch and if he wants dessert and coffee you should not pay for it.

Establish what is owed then pay Council online...if you owe baiiff fees pay them online also.

Remember to print screenshots of the transactions by way a receipt..

 

Do not believe the figures the bailifflink3.gif has given you.

Hi Wonkey

 

He has given a mate verbal assurances that he wants £42.50 + return fees to levy and agree a payment plan.

I would still be inclined to tell the Bailiff you have no intention of being stuffed and ask for the proposal in writing as for wanting £130 up front money and the right to levy to set up a payment plan would get the response from me...£50 a month unconditional and heres one month in advance........but I would of course make my payments direct to the Council while the bailiff thinks it over!!!

Hi WD

 

You must have read his mind, I believe that was his proposal, he can pay the full amount but has told them otherwise.

 

Cheers
