    • so what..stuff and all they can do unless you want to be a mug and pay for their xmas staff party by giving them free money   dx
    • They offered w/c 7 Dec on Tuesday of this week.  I didn't accept it or reject it. I just said it was better than Feb but still not what was agreed.  I said I wanted to speak with their director before I would consider it and she refused.  
    • I gathered that after your protests they had come back with the 7th after which you didn't raise any further objection. Is that wrong?
    • NatWest Group’s Q3 results have revealed today the bank provided a peak of 250,000 mortgage payment holidays, but these have since dropped to just 37,000 which are still active View the full article
    • I had quotes and timescales back  in July/August from other companies which will not be valid now.   Ironically the reason I went with this company was because I felt I hit off with the guy that came to see me - the very director that I’m now banned from talking to! Had a very stressful lengthy building insurance claim 2 years ago and this is bringing it all back.  Yes I told them in my email last night that I knew they hadn’t applied to the council and their reply this morning said they use a consultancy who apply to the council on their behalf.  Have just called the council again and they’ve now told me that other people besides them can provide building regs certificates. As they say they haven’t had one applied for and Homeview have said their consultancy deals with the council on their behalf I don’t know what to think.  I’m sure if I ask for a completed date and not a start date she will just say ‘as I said we will start w/c 7 Dec.’    BankFodder have just seen your comment that I’ve done everything by phone. I haven’t and not sure where you’ve got that from?  All has been done via email.  I had two things verbally from the director during his site visit - that it would take two weeks to install and all would be done by Xmas.    Can you explain how I’ve been complicit in the delay? I was expecting the works to be done early Nov and last week was told it would be February which I immediately rejected. I haven’t agreed to any delay?

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Where are these silly rumours coming from. He can't do anything on his own, he would be the leader of a party and anything done would be by consent of parliament.

The things being said make his role seem dictatorial, he will be the sole ruler.

This is the right wing press imagining Corbyn winning a majority and being able to do many things.

 

As some economists have said, Corbyn has a point that government has a role to play in bringing into the public sector any critically important business that has failed e.g RBS, Lloyds. Could you imagine what would have happened if Labour had allowed those Banks to go bust.

 

I believe that state industries can offer better services to the public and earn the country money. Look at how many UK utility companies are partly or wholly owned by foreign governments.

We could do with some help from you.

Privatised companies charge up to 10% more than their operating costs to the end consumer as a guaranteed profit margin.

 

If that fails the Tax payer bails them out to that 10% margin

 

Privatised industries have a Win-win agreement

 

How can that be fair to joe public??

Because they would then be a private company with shareholders and a profit making company. The government will have got a nice purse from the sale.

 

No one goes into business without the intention of making a profit and 10% if a very low profit margin.

HIS HEROES, would you trust him to run this country???

CORBYN ON THE IRA

Asked on Ulster radio if he’d condemn the Irish terrorist group, Corbyn

repeatedly avoided a direct answer—simply saying: ‘I condemn all bombing.

It is not a good idea, and it is terrible what happened.’

He added: ‘Look, I condemn what was done by the British Army as well as

other sides. What happened in Derry in 1972 [bloody Sunday] was pretty

devastating.’

Corbyn had previously invited Sinn Fein’s Gerry Adams to the Commons

weeks after the IRA murdered five people in the Tory Conference bomb at

Brighton. In 1987, he observed a minute’s silence for IRA men killed by the SAS.

During the troubles between 1969 & 2001, an estimated 1,800 people—including

women and children—are estimated to have been murdered by the IRA.

ON HEZBOLLAH AND HAMAS

‘It will be my pleasure and honour to host an event in Parliament where our friends

from Hezbollah will be speaking. I’ve also invited friends from Hamas to come and speak.

‘The idea that [Hamas] should be labelled as a terrorist organisation by the UK government

is really a big, big historical mistake.’

Most governments regard the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah as a terrorist organisation,

guilty of war crimes, torture, murder, abductions and deliberately targeting Israeli citizens.

ON SLOBODAN MILOSEVIC

(Yugoslav leader accused of genocide)

Corbyn opposed military strikes against the brute’s attacks in Kosovo. In 2004, he signed a

Commons motion praising Left-wing journalist John Pilger ‘on his expose’ of the fraudulent

justification for intervening in a “genocide” that never really existed in Kosovo”.

Milosevic was put on trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for atrocities, including genocide

and crime against humanity .

ON HUGO CHAVEZ

(Former socialist president of Venezuela)

‘Thanks, Hugo Chavez, for showing that the poor matter and wealth can be shared. He made massive

contributions to Venezuela and a very wide world.’

The hard-line Marxist brought a rich oil economy to its knees—leaving his country a basket case,

ravaged by poverty and inflation.

ON CUBA

He praised Marxist Fidel Castro’s ‘achievements’ in healthcare and education and ‘the esteem in

which Castro is held.

More than a million people fled the dictator’s regime while he enriched himself.

PS After Lady Thatcher died, he said: ‘I don’t think we should be spending

all this money on recalling Parliament and a quasi-state funeral.’

Before you start on this band wagon of attacking Corbyn like you did with George Galloway

 

Might i remind you of the Good Friday Agreement

 

If the then labour Government failed to negotiate with Sinn Féin we would still have bodies in the street

 

If just one life is saved through talking then that has to be worth it

 

And by the way, i did three tours myself

 

You disgust me with all this negative propaganda.

 

Be it Corbyn is elected or not, the electorate will decide

Now why did I not expect a response like that I ask myself??

Anything can be twisted, to suit what you wish to believe, all I have done

is to list what he has said in the past, you say this so called (in your words negative propaganda)

it just happens to be fact weather you wish to believe it or not, that is entirely up to you.

You are correct the electorate will decide, I would like to think that they are not as naïve,

as some politicians seem to think they are, when trying to pull the wool over their eyes.

You mention the Good Friday Agreement I would not call this an agreement, I would be

more inclined to call it an appeasement to murders, who have been let off, and would

in my opinion do the same all over again if it suited them to do so, and I would not rule

that out either, in the future.

Just remember nothing in this world is for free, somebody has to pay for it, I assume you are

in receipt of a military pension some body has to pay for it.

 

I have every respect for ex-servicemen, I served in the military myself for 28 years.

 

Don’t even start me on George Galloway.

The IRA are still alive and kicking and Gerry Adams is still their boss. If not, then how does he know "Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams has said the IRA was not involved in the murder of ex-IRA man Kevin McGuigan Sr."

What is interesting is the same old crap coming out of labour party HQ

 

Have any of the other three leadership contenders besides Corbyn gone on record saying what they will do to win back the trust of the British public?.

 

Labour have lost the last two General election with this Blairite crap.

 

That is why Corbyn has mass support, and it terrifies the Oxbridge crowd. The people have spoken

What you are saying is the people want to change the country to communism with a dictator in charge. Silly talk.

Even if he should become leader, as said earlier, he can't do a single thing by himself, so it makes no odds who is the leader so why are you cheering like a One Direction fan.

The source no doubt is Tory Party Central HQ, just like his other posts

 

This is a debating thread, not a kipper echo chamber of self glorification

 

The Tories are terrified of him as his policies appeal to the Greens and SNP as well. That is why we have this constant negative propaganda

 

That negative propaganda is not working by the way

I cana't put links yet as my post count isn't high enough, but they come from various sources including parliament so I can't be accused of sticking to one paper.

They are in most papers and blogs around the world from Cornwall to Israel.

At least Jeremy (JC) as started a debate. Middle of the road/PC politics from the labour party have left it dead in the water. JC is not the messiah nor do I agree on most of his polices but at least he shows signs of life. The three corpses who wish to replace the last deadend leader of the labour party would not have an original thought if you put 5,000 volts through them. I fear that no credible opposition will emerge that can challenge the conservatives.

The Tories were written off only 10 years ago. They went through 3 leaders between 1997 and 2005.

 

Remember Cameron has a nightmare on his hands in the form of the EU referendum ! It is looking like Cameron will ask the British public to vote to stay in the EU, even though he had not obtained any reforms.

 

Also we have the migration issue and the world economy likely to be unhelpful in the next few years.

We could do with some help from you.

The statements you have made suggest to me that you consider Jeremy Corbyn to have come from an ordinary background, and that he is just an ordinary working class person. (breath of fresh air??).

Secondly why when making a comment in relation to HIS HEROES, would you trust him to run this country??? did you just mention the IRA how about his other friends?
