    • My ex Landlords and I have been come to a settlement agreement to avoid going to is a big weight off my shoulders. It was less than I initially asked for but am happy to leave the stress behind. I’ve also made a small donation towards the running of this platform.  Thanks to envy/everyone who gave me some help and advice on this matter.  
    • Ok, this is what i have typed out so far. I just to refer to the evidences i have and put it in a good order. Just another point to clarify in my write-up, the address i was living in was different to my address on my driving license as it was only short term so i never changed it, so all the NTK's were sent to my Licence's address yet i never actually received the intent to claim at that address (it is my parents) i have mentioned this in my write up. please have a look and let me know what you guys think.   Claim from: County Court Business Centre Claim No. XXXX Judgment Date: 02/01/2019 Claimant: UK Parking Control Ltd Defendant:  XXXX   Witness Statement 1.       I lived at the address, XXXX from 06/12/2014 to 05/06/2015. 2.       Between 20/12/2014 and 10/01/2015 I received 7 parking charge notices from UKPC. 3.       I contested the charges and corresponded with the claimant by post and email on several occasions, an example of both can be seen in the attached supporting evidence. 4.       My appeal was upheld for the first two charges and these were cancelled by email as can be seen in the supporting evidence, yet they were included in the claim. 5.       I wrote a letter to UKPC on 25/02/2015 informing them that I received 7 charges yet I received no notice to driver on the vehicle and that I spoke with an employee on 06/02/2015 who advised me that I request they be revoked which UKPC refused to comply with. 6.       I wrote a final letter of correspondence to UKPC on 31/03/2015 requesting that before the matter escalates any further, I would like UKPC to send me any and all relevant evidence regarding the alleged breaches of and if I did not hear from them within 14 days ( by 14/04/2015) I would consider the matter closed. I received no such evidence from UKPC on request, only a letter dated 15/04/2015 stating that they had made their final decision. 7.       I received no further correspondence from UKPC and assumed the other 5 charges had been cancelled. 8.       I moved to my new address on 05/06/2015 which was 66 days after my final letter of correspondence and I still had received no evidence for the accused breaches. 9.       I am unaware of UKPC having sent further correspondence to my former address, but if they had, I was not aware of this. I had always corresponded with them in a timely fashion previously. In the absence of a response, they should have had reason to doubt that the address was still my place of residence. 10.    UKPC sent all Notice to Keepers to the address XXXX, yet when it came to sending the claim documents and court documents, there was no receipt of these which leads me to believe UKPC had sent it to the where I lived previously XXXX. Therefore, if UKPC knew my address from my registered keeper details, I fail to understand how they did not manage to send me all the correct documentation to the same address as the notice to keeper.   Defense Below are the key points which constitute my defence regarding the alleged breaches of contract. Supremacy of contract, due to being a tenant on the property (as seen in evidence referenced page 3). At the time of the claimant issuing the tickets, I was a tenant on the property which provides me with supremacy of contract. The tenancy agreement has precedence over the contractual agreement that UKPC issued the charge under. 1.       Signage. The signage at the entrance and inside the car park reads “no unauthorized parking” and “Permit holders only”.  As I was a tenant at the address and was provided with a permit and a fob to open the shutter to gain access to the car park, I was authorized to park at the address and I was a permit holder, which can be seen in the evidence provided. 2.       Contract. I deny that I ever entered any contract with UKPC. A contract is an agreement between 2 or more parties where terms and conditions are discussed and agreed upon and signed into, which I deny ever doing. Furthermore I was in a contract with my landlord held by my tenancy agreement allowing me to park at the address in the allotted bay. 3.       The practice direction on pre-action conduct was not followed - No intent to claim was ever received at the address that UKPC had where they sent the Notices to keeper. Furthermore, I was not provided with any documentation regarding the alleged breaches, despite requesting it (as seen in evidence referenced page 1). 4.       UKPC had previously sent Notices to Keeper to my correct address but had not attempted to contact me at my correct address regarding the claim which UKPC was in possession as seen in all the notices to keeper. Furthermore they could have tracked my address via the electoral roll. 5.       Two of the parking tickets (pcn ref. XXXXand pcn ref. XXXX), which form part of the claim, had in fact been cancelled by UKPC on 11 March 2015 (as seen in evidence referenced pages 4, 5 and 6), therefore the claim made against me was not valid as 2 of the pcn’s have been cancelled and are no longer valid. 6.       No Notice to Driver was placed on the windscreen of the vehicle with the exception of 10/01/2015 where I appealed the charge. Therefore under POFA 2012 schedule 4, the time by which the Notices to Keeper should have been received were overdue. 7.       No notice to keeper was ever received for two of the charges (1255650100601 on 10/01/2015 and 1255650050516 on 05/01/2015 which is a violation of POFA 2012 schedule 4. 8.       Lack of Evidence. There was no evidence provided to myself showing the alleged breach with the number plate of my vehicle in view and any signage in view. There are only the images of the back of the vehicle showing the bay number and the vehicle registration printed on the notices to keeper that were provided.       Below is the chronological order of events as they took place.   I lived at the address XXXX between 6 December 2014 and 5 June 2015 (as seen in evidence referenced page 3), where there was private underground parking which was Managed by UKPC. The parking provided was closed off by an automatic shutter gate which required a remote to open. This is where i received a total of 7 parking charges in the space of 1 month - despite displaying a valid residents parking permit which was provided to me by the letting agency as part of my tenancy lease agreement ( as seen in evidence referenced page 3). The charges were received by me as Notices to Keeper at the address XXXX. After a lengthy and unnecessarily difficult appeals process, the first 2 that were issued (pcn ref. XXXXand pcn ref. XXXX) were cancelled by UKPC (as seen in evidence referenced pages 4, 5 and 6). I then received yet another 5 charges and after numerous correspondence back and forth where they became uncooperative and failed to provide me with the evidence requested (as seen in evidence referenced page 1), at this stage the cost escalated from £15 to £160 for the 5 tickets and they stated that they felt the tickets were issued correctly then refused any more correspondence regarding all tickets. I responded with a final letter in reply (as seen in evidence referenced page 1), stating that if they did not provide me with any and all evidence for each ticket within 14 days (from 31st March 2015) I would consider it an admission of incorrectly issued tickets and the matter concluded. I did not receive any further correspondence from UKPC and assumed the matter was closed. In February 2019 during a routine check of my credit report, I found that I have a default CCJ had been issued against me due to court action taken by UKPC without my knowledge, for all 7 tickets totaling £1,270 including fees. No intent of claim was received at the address XXXX yet this is the address where the notices to keeper were originally sent.   I believe the claimant has behaved unreasonably by not agreeing to the the appeals when a permit was provided, Not providing Notices to keeper either in time or at all, not using the correct address which they had used to send the notices to keeper. According to publicly available information my circumstances are far from being unique. UKPC’s persistent failure to use correct and current addresses results in an unnecessary burden for individuals and the justice system. Statement of Truth: I believe that the facts stated in this Witness Statement are true.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

I had hoped this was going to be a sensible discussion about the use of nuclear power.

That hope seems forlorn with that video as the starting point.

 

Its like starting a discussion on the future of the royal family with a david icke rant claiming they are shape shifting alien lizards!

 

and thats relevant because david ickes ramblings and this video are promoted on the same sort of sites

My whole point is to find out if it should be taken seriously or not. It's easy to dismiss him as a lunatic, but some of what he is saying is so specific that it seems to be a case of at least lets hear him out and then see if there is any truth in what he is saying. I am pretty sure if you listen to David Icke, then you will see that he suckers people in with halve truths, mixed with fiction, fantasy and a good tale. This is a little different to Icke simply because Icke can be seen as trying to make a buck.

 

This guy does seem sane and does not seem to be involved in what he is doing for the money. I am only after the truth, if this guy is an idiot or a liar etc then great at least I will have seen enough possible debate to consider what he is saying as absolute nonsense, but to totally dismiss him, without any debate is to my mind, no different to saying hey Edison's DC is best and Tesla's AC is bad because the authority of the day tells us its that way, because ultimately Edison was defending his business, reputation and income based on bias rather than fact.

 

Think of it like science, I am only after the truth, if he turns out be a nutter then great, if he turns out to be telling the truth, then he is one of the biggest whistle blowers of all time, either way, I wanna know.

 

Also as CAG is all about us vs the MAN and how the MAN is always screwing us, I thought this was a good place to at least open it up for debate.

I'm no nuclear physicist (just like most tennis players) but I think

Hiroshima

Nagasaki

and the issues with depleted uranium shells used in Iraq answer any doubts quite adequately for me.

and if they didn't, then Chernobyl certainly would.

 

Now I am completely in favour of nuclear energy as the only real option available for our growing energy needs, even if I have no faith in the commercial and political rather than best scientific decision processes in how, let alone whether nuclear energy is or is not used.

 

Sadly, I also don't think spreading nuclear waste on our toast in the morning would resolve the disposal issue effectively despite the claims in the video.

I am no nuclear physicist either but I do think what he is saying holds some validity:-

 

 

He actually describes the above dramatized version of the event in his talk, what get's me is that they are all in the room without much in the way of protection, which is how I have heard and seen this event re-told many many times over. If it's that lethal then wouldn't going near the thing without wearing full hazard suits etc be considered at least prudent.

 

It's called tickling the dragons tail as shown above and described here :-

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demon_core

Keep in mind the above shown material is weapons grade, which is considered way beyond low or high level waist.

 

I am a scientist at heart - so truth and understanding is my goal, not outlandish conjecture or wild conspiracy, but if he is right, then God almighty this raises so many questions.

I am a scientist at heart - so truth and understanding is my goal, not outlandish conjecture or wild conspiracy, but if he is right, then God almighty this raises so many questions.

 

and from the wiki link you give :

"The demon core was a 6.2-kilogram (14 lb), 3.5-inch-diameter (89 mm) subcritical mass of plutonium which went briefly super-critical in two separate accidents at the Los Alamos laboratory in 1945 and 1946. Each incident resulted in the acute radiation poisoning and subsequent death of a scientist. After these incidents the spherical plutonium pit was referred to as the "demon core."

 

They died.

 

there is also the consideration that if this guy is right, then it would lead to pretty much all of high energy physics and most of chemistry being wrong.

They work far to well for that to be likely.

 

Although we clearly don't know all there is to know, and there are some real discrepancies in our understanding (the great walls and the structure of Galaxies for starters) I don't think we could possibly be as far wrong currently as would be needed for this guy to be right.

My point

" If it's that lethal then wouldn't going near the thing without wearing full hazard suits etc be considered at least prudent."

Why are they all standing around weapons grade stuff dressed as if its an average day at the office!

What the guy is saying in the first video basically means that nobody should be anywhere near this thing and according to the regulatory authorities, all of them in the room would be contaminated including the room itself just by taking it out the box!

Much lower grade waste material just being in the room with them would according to the authorities, be considered a hazard zone that would need a fortune spent on cleaning it up - A FORTUNE.

 

My logic is only based on observation, if you have hard empirical data then let me know.

Observation of what though?

That is what you need to ask yourself.

 

Don't forget that there were nuclear artillery where the nuclear shells were shielded enough for them to be carted around in wombat sized vehicles.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W48

 

Like cooling pools - which? Power stations and reactors have a number.

Bubbling steaming pits full of super-hot cooling rods really belong in James Bond movies (and are very enjoyable there)

 

LOL Wombat vehicles, not the marsupial,

The point of his video that he seems to want to make clear is that WE are all paying a fortune for something that WE may not need to be paying a fortune for - the regulations have hiked the price of the nuclear option, for so many dubious reasons, seems to be his message. So should we all be asking deeper questions or maybe we should all just accept everything we are told without question!

I understand, I did the same on many occasions (as you might realise) and almost exclusively came out disappointing once examined. But it was something I had to prove to myself.

 

If you really want real mysteries which cast questions on current scientific mainstream beliefs, then look up

The great Wall

http://www.science-frontiers.com/sf067/sf067a08.htm

M.J. Geller, codiscoverer of the Great Wall with J.P. Huchra, remarked:

 

"My view is that there is something fundamentally wrong in our approach to understanding such large-scale structure -- some key piece of the puzzle that we're missing."

or the issue that our understanding of Gravity despite enabling us to get to pluto cannot explain why Galaxies spin as they do without flying apart.

Ok then perhaps investigate the issue with subcritical masses going super-critical as can happen, hence the safety precautions and immense cost with something that might otherwise be considered only a relatively mild health hazard (in significant but far lesser shielding).

(Let alone ensuring that nobody could just nick some in passing)

I do take your points on-board, but I think his underlying message is this, we could be doing it all a hell of a lot cheaper and potentially even safer than we are currently doing it, but the industry is using scare tactics to hike the price way higher than it has to be, profit is the goal of almost every business as most CAG viewers will attest to.

 

The scientist who was killed in the above video, did the math after the flash to see who in the room would be OK or not as the case maybe, suggesting that even back then we knew the risks and the math etc. So if these experts are willing to be in a room with weapons grade stuff and they knew the risks involved, then it seems at least to me that some of Galen's points are valid.

 

It is my believe that the nuclear industry has been ripping of the consumer for decades and also the way we currently produce power in big processing plants like he describes may also be the wrong approach, see:-

 

Galen even said in the video we haven't built a nuclear reactor right yet and smaller local reactors etc are the way to go - watch the above link for more on this train of thought. It seems he may have been a man ahead of his time in some respects. I think he was also a man with a message and he should've been listened to a whole lot more.

I think Chernobyl should convince otherwise even if nothing else does.

 

I see and can find absolutely NO facts whatsoever supporting the position presented in that video. There is lots of innuendo and obtuse illogic.

 

That there are now better ways to build reactors than there were 20 years ago, and that politics and economics have always defined how, when and whether nuclear reactors are built is pretty much unquestionable, yet even that isn't presented in any way realistically.

 

It's conspiracy nut stuff which actually clouds not clears the realities of the situation. That is my honest opinion which to me it is supported by all real-world facts, knowledge and events.

 

Let me end with a question:

Given 3 mile island and Chernobyl, would you want a garden shed nuclear reactor, hacked together from a nuclear artillery shell and the remains of a still at the bottom of your garden, or even in the same county as you and your family?

... Even if it could give out enough energy to do more than boil a kettle as a reactor, despite the shell being able to destroy a reasonably sized Town?

Why does every debate on nuclear "issues" always bring weapons and power generation into the same room? They're two entirely different things!!!!!!

 

My option on power generation?

Chernobyl is the worst nuclear disaster in human history, but the remaining 3 reactors were kept running for decades after the incident and the whole place is now a tourist destination. Guess what my opinion is.....

Why are you so nervous about nuclear energy? As i remember France get about 70-80% of electricity from nuclear power plants. I rather believe in nuclear war nowdays.
