    • 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.

Now one but no one actually takes a baby to work unless there is somewhere to put it. If you're breastfeeding and no facility at work, then you should stay at home until they have moved onto bottle feeding.

 

It would never happen, bus drivers with their kids on their lap, cribs on shop counters. Whoever said this was just being stupid.

 

Breastfeed in public discreetly while shopping or going out for the day but not in work.

The British really are very odd. Breast feeding is the most natural thing and we should have no objection to it being done anywhere.

We could do with some help from you.

I don't think there is a general objection to it, (well maybe by a few weirdos). It's not just feeding, there is the winding, the being sick, the nappy changes. It just isn't practical to be sat on

a bench in the commons and be looking after a baby.

But then how many women MPs are of child bearing age ?

 

Their basic pay would cover child care costs, so there isn't any real need to take a baby into the House in the first place.

You've all got the wrong end of the stick.

 

This is for the MP's so they can go to work dressed in their evening wear adult diapers.

 

At least it will keep them quiet for a while.

The Tory Legacy

Record high: Taxes, Immigration, Excrement in waterways, energy company/crony profits

Crumbling: Hospitals, Schools, council services, businesses and roads

If only the Govt had thrown a protective ring around care homes

with the same gusto they do around their crooked MPs

 

However bad you think things are ..

Could be worse - could be Farage

Has he moved to clacton yet?

I thought breast feeding was a private moment between Mother & Baby ! I don't think I would like to breast feed a child in a public place - just think of all the germs !!

 

Aside from which, if the Mother MP is feeding her baby, how on earth can she be concentrating on matters of state ?

 

IMHO, this breast feeding in public thing is basically just women saying look how powerful we are in that we can force our daily lives on others !!

As far as I'm aware the HOC doesn't allow children in so I doubt its going to happen.

 

However if a public place allows children then its against the law to stop a mother breast feeding or make her feel awkward about it.

 

Frankly, I wish I'd had the courage of my convictions and BF in public, perhaps I'd have left the house more often. I was virtually on house arrest (extremely hungry baby).

 

I can't really understand why people object and some peoples reasons I find quite bizarre.

But BF in public isn't saying look how powerful we are (women). Its saying, my baby is hungry and I believe breast is best (which it is). It seems that its OK to sexualise breasts but heaven forbid they're used for their actual purpose. Sit in isolation so nobody can see you.

 

 

As for BF in the HOC, is this being debated in the HOC? Has someone complained that mothers can't BF in the HOC? Are MPs bringing their children to work? What's prompted this discussion?

 

 

CitizenB does make a good point. I don't object in the slightest to women breastfeeding. I do, however, believe there's a time and place for things like this. I'd rather go outside and feed my baby than sit in the House of Commons and feed.

Thanks for that.

 

Although I agree we need more women in the HOC I don't think this is the way to go. I think MPs do little enough work as it is. Its supposed to be a place of work.

 

Mind you on the other hand, one of my previous employers allowed smoke breaks and allowed time out to pray 4 times a day. Other workers were really annoyed that those taken advantage of this weren't putting the same working hours in for the same pay.

My ex breast fed our kids and did so on demand, no matter where we were. She was very discreet about it and very few people noticed. She even fed my youngest daughter on a bus. No one noticed.

I have no objection to people exposing a breast. My moobs are up there with the best of them :smile:
