    • an that - it seems to be the poop approach We have reduced inflation massively err from the massive amount we caused it to rise too We will give pensioners a tiny smidgen back - of the much much larger amount we've already ripped them off We will reduce some taxes a tiny amount.. from the record amount we have raised it too and reduce services twice as much  to pay for our VIPals extravagances the list goes on   Even their smears are feeble Wet Sunak dribbles over his own feet and needs his pals pretending to be 'real people to ask questions,  while Starmer regularly plays 5 a side Raynor pays her bills, while Tories sell taxpayer funded second houses at a profit - no doubt routed through tax avoidance schemes
    • I'd say concern about the landfill operator is absolutely necessary. I think the word they could mean is 'embarrassing'.
    • Just to cover yourself, you should write them a letter in response telling them that you are rejecting their offer. That they know full well that their insurance is an attempt to limit or exclude liability contrary to section 57 Consumer rights act and is a secondary contract contrary to section 72.  By the way was the offer made without prejudice or in confidence or anything? Maybe you could post up their offer here please
    • "Dear HR, I refer to my correspondence of *date* in which I challenged xxx, copy attached. Clearly this was a grievance, and yet does not seem to have been heard under the grievance procedure. I am exceptionally dismayed that this 'review'. which never took place, seems to be being used as a criteria in redundancy selection proceedings. As this is time critical, please advise asap."            
    • Just to update, received a revised offer of £75 from P2G after they got my LOC last Friday. They stated that because it was not insured this would be their final offer. Looks like we are going to court.

    • 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.

I'm friend with a cat in my neighbourhood, but I don't know who the owner is.

He regularly brings me dead rats and birds as presents.

I've never fed him, I just stroke him.

He waits for me to park my car, comes for a stroke and then he sleeps on my car.

I've noticed that he is shy with other people and doesn't go near them; he must just like me 😁

When I lived in Kent, many years ago, our golden retriever at the time started pacing a corner of the back garden - there were lots of bushes and trees in that corner so we couldn't see what she was so agitated about. We went to see what she was worried about and for the first time ever, she growled a warning for us to stay away. We backed off and just watched. About an hour later, a Vixen arrived and then calmly removed two fox cubs and snuck out through a gap in the hedge.

 

We realised that our Goldie had been "cub sitting" :) For the next few evenings we went through this same routine. This happened around the same time the following year and the one after that.

 

Then sadly our goldie passed away, 2 days later, I was sat in the dining room feeling a bit miserable when I sensed something at the kitchen door and it was a Vixen - it stuck its head in and sniffed the air then it gave me a kind of "very sad for your loss" look and went away, taking her cubs with her.

 

I hope she found another caring dog to look after her cubs whilst she foraged for food.

hi tawny, yes he is right character, he was I am afraid to say badly abused and kept in a cage for 24/7, he was also kicked in the head by a horse and attacked by a dog when he was just a puppy, he was never helped over that and now he thinks all dogs must die! I got him when he was 5 and he has improved so much except for the dog issue, he attacked my other dog on the first meeting but now they are fine, they do have their set too now and then lol It is just other dogs he will not entertain and is kept on a lead so is overweight bless him through no fault of his own, just not taking the risk of him attacking another dog ( he has done before ). He was so scared of a lot of things and he also has separation issues.

 

I just can not understand some people, my other dog was " replaced" by a new dog and his previous owner said his work was more important to him then the dog! He had got his as a puppy I have had him since he was 6 and he is 11 now

Do you know snowdragon you have just reminded me of a story.

Here i go again.

Worked in construction most of my life,and enjoyed it too.

 

Well one day i had to go to a house which had had a severe fire.

Plaster had melted off the walls,windows twisted into strange shapes with the heat generated.

I was talking to the owners when they said a strange thing.

Better mention no one was hurt in the fire,they escaped.

 

A young owl i was at the time anyway they said.

When this house is repaired this dog is going to the vets to be put down.If we cannot find a home for her.

We do not want her hairs on the new carpets.

 

I did not say much as a job was there for myself.

But what i did do was open my van door and say to the dog,come on old lady you come to live with the owl.

And she just jumped in and made herself at home.

And for a good few years afterwards used to come to work with me.

And was so well behaved and happy.

A good memory brought back.

 

My first dog.

TO, I have only just seen Fang, he is lovely - I bet he takes some brushing.

 

I love the images of the chimp - very touching.

Hi citizenB

Ah i see i got mixed up a touch.

Milo is my dog and Fang is my wifes cat.I must put a picture of the little devil up.Friendly,as you stroke him and he has had enough he lets you know by grabbing you with his paws and biting though never to hard.Does not penetrate through the skin.Then looks at you with green eyes and shoots off sharpish.

Milo is my best friend,and the cat Fang is my wifeys pet.Bioh have green eyes that worry me at times.

I look often for a hidden broomstick and cauldron around and abouts.

 

Yes the dog a Pomeranian is hard to brush and comb.When done properly he looks like a lion,although some say a fox at times.

Yesterday during a raging gale we walked the shoreline and both of us got covered in sea foam.

We are used to harsh conditions and do it regularly,he seems to like being out and about.But always glad to get home and curl up by the fireside.

He has a undercoat and topcoat which keeps him cool in summer and warm in winter.

I wish i had the same.It would be handy to have such a coat.
