    • So, the two child benefit cap is going to (rightly or wrongly) be a big issue, with the care of kids undoubtedly taking second place to political point scoring  ... Some think that parents should be responsible for kids, and the state pay as little as possible else the parents will just use having kids (which they then neglect) as a means of income for them to spend on fags and booze. Some think that benefits should be effectively there for anyone whatever the circumstances.   So what do people think might be some sort of solution?   I think that both those stances are extremes,  and you can be sure of just a few things 1. Neither or any approach fits all affected. There are some who will abuse the system, just as there are some left in genuine desperate need. 2. None of its the kids fault, and how they are treated will have a large impact on our nations future.   So, despite the claims of 'it means only rich people can have kids' which is rubbish, I think the cap should stay. ... BUT that free school meals should be introduced for all state school kids:   Which would * ensure our nations children kids get fed at least one meal a day with the funds intended for that * be a significant incentive to go to school for the poorer kids at least - keeping many off the streets and away from bad company * almost certainly reduce problems and increase productivity in the classroom from irritable hungry kids (per stats)   Not a perfect solution by any means - but seems a positive move to me.    
    • and more positive change From next year, mobile phone, paid television and broadband companies must inform customers of any price rises at the point of sale. The changes, ordered by Ofcom, will come into force on 17 January and mean that any mid-contract price rises must be given “in pounds and pence” and in a “clear and comprehensible” way.   Taken a change of government to do it after years of bluster about it eh?   Mobile phone companies banned from hiking prices mid-contract based on inflation WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK The new year plan ensures providers are transparent on prices at the point of sale  
    • Could he/ his partner set up a new internet bank account?  In his name ? It depends which country, I imagine. Most UK banks want proof of address and ID, probably more. If your friend/partner can use the house address and provide bills that could help. You would need to look at various online banks and see what their requirements are. Or there are expat accounts but I haven't looked closely at how they work. Could I then get his pension diverted to that new account?  That would at least cover some costs  ( ie epc/ storage) I'd have thought the DWP would pay to a new account, as long as the person they're authorised to deal with asks them and provides details. The international pensions people in Newcastle are pretty helpful.
    • HB - he has certainly given me a challenge ! I set a plan in motion. A refinance plan that would have enabled me to take time to sell one asset and sort out another for him.   The bank account blockage has hindered the plan.  His partner seems to think I can do everything w/o paying anyone for anything.  I don't mind helping - but it's not normal to clear out 2 properties, organize storage or sale of possessions, get properties ready for sale/ rent - w/o being paid.  He has the money to pay for things and services - and for my help - but the blockage prevents that. If the refinance plan could still be actioned then at least I would have some time to sell one asset.  Could he/ his partner set up a new internet bank account?  In his name ? Could I then get his pension diverted to that new account?  That would at least cover some costs  ( ie epc/ storage)

    • 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.

As has been previously mentioned on here ANPR have now been given the boot by the BPA Ltd. This is their press release:-

 

http://britishparking.co.uk/News/bpa-terminates-membership-of-anpr-limited

 

And about time too!

 

 

 

The British Parking Association (BPA) has terminated the membership of ANPR Limited with immediate effect.

 

Following investigations arising from complaints by motorists, BPA Officers awarded 16 Sanction Points covering multiple Code of Practice breaches including failing to follow agreed procedures in handling motorist appeals and failing to live up to BPA customer service requirements.

 

If an operator receives 12 or more Sanction Points in a 12-month period, their case is referred to the BPA Professional Conduct Panel who will review all the evidence. In this instance the panel concluded that the membership of ANPR Ltd should be terminated. This termination means that ANPR Limited’s ability to request vehicle keeper details from the DVLA will cease.

That will upset the DVLA as they charge for that privilege don't they ?

Oh shame :lol:

 

If you look at their 'new' website there is no reference to the BPA nor is there any reference to making appeals (well none that I can find so far)

 

As they have had their DVLA access revoked, they will have to resort to windscreen tickets but as they tend to use ANPR, that will make their job doubly hard as they shouldn't be able to get the keepers details. I wonder if they will attempt to get one of their 'friends' to do the checking for them.

 

We will know as soon as someone pops up with a NTK dated after the dismissal.

Don't speak too soon.

 

Dell negotiate some deal with the BPA and be back before you know it – or else let off with the other lot, who are probably very pleased to get people off the BPA.

 

16 sanction points it takes for the BPA to take action?

12 points per year is the limit so ANPR have gone well over that.

 

Their website still needs adjusting as they are still saying they are a BPA approved operator. Oops!

 

There is still an avenue for appeals but only by post and it is hidden away from where it should be, that payments section

Aw, they were leaving anyway,

http://www.anpr-ltd.com/news.php

 

It is rumoured that ANPR Ltd are no longer members of the BPA and that we've been 'Kicked Off' off their Approved Operator Scheme. I can confirm that the rumours are 100% true. Ironically our membership was due to expire in March and we made it blatantly clear we will not be renewing our £5,000 membership.

As expected we anticipated a change long ago and have initiated our contingency plan.

Clever Trevor.

 

Just 'cos I ain't never had

No, nothing worth having, never ever, never ever

You ain't got no call, not to think of what I'm falling to

Thinking that I ain't too clever

 

And it ain't not having one thing nor not another either

Neither is it anything, whatever

And it's not not knowing that there ain't nothing showing

And I answer to the name of Trevor, however

 

Just 'cos I ain't never said

No, nothing worth saying, never ever, never, never ever

Things have got read into what I never said

Till me mouth becomes me head which ain't not all that clever

 

And it's not, not saying one thing nor not another either

Neither is it anything I haven't said whatever

And it ain't not proving that my mind ain't moving

And I answer to the name of Trevor, however

 

Knock me down with a feather clever Trevor

Wide brows wonder whether clever Trevor's clever

Either have they got, nor neither haven't not

Got no right to make a clot out of Trevor

 

Why should I feel bad about something I ain't had

Such stupidness is mad

'Cos nothing underfoot comes to nothing less to add

To a load of old toot and I ain't half not half glad

'Cos there's nowhere to put it even if I had

I'm a bit of a Jack the Lad

 

Knock me down with a feather clever Trevor

Wide brows wonder whether clever Trevor's clever

Either have they got, nor neither haven't not

Got no right to make a clot out of Trevor

 

Also, it takes much longer to get up North the slow way.....

I would have thought that they should have been awarded 1 point for every time they failed to appear in court.

 

Mind you, after the criminal court case they are in to ATM, they may follow suit shortly.
