    • out of the blue text and email from J&P asking me to make contact regarding ref number.   Plan to adopt same tactic as for last 12 years with CW&D, IRDWW, IDR etc  
    • Spoke to legal which turned out to be the court processing the claim all they could recommend was filling in the plea online and gave me an email so I could attach proof of DD being in place. So going back to DVLA to see if I can get any further explaining what has happened 
    • It would just be good to get a few more opinions on the judges decision before I decide whether to push on with it or stop if there's every chance I will lose and owe them more in legal costs
    • America is a republic, (and) not a democracy - not quite there yet   Trump is a corrupt felon, not a president - yep
    • Hello I hope someone can give me some advice here, as I am at a bit of a loss on how to proceed. This relates to alleged offences under the RTA. Yesterday I received a notification from the local police of intention to prosecute for the following offences: 1 driving without due care and attention 2 failing to stop at a road traffic accident 3 failing to report a road traffic accident At this stage they have only asked me to say whether I was the driver at the time or not and provided a blank sheet of paper to give information about the incident. Going by the location (just round the corner from where I live) I can only imagine this relating to one recent incident, which wasn't actually an accident but more of a road rage event. I was driving past someone unloading or working next to his lorry which had stopped in the road. I wasn't going fast or anything, while I went by lorry man turned around and punched and kicked my car whilst going past him. I stopped and got out and wanted to know what he thought he was doing punching and kicking my car. He then hurled some verbal abuse at me, swearing and he was quite aggressive. I still didn't know what his problem was and said I would report him to his company for threatening behaviour and vandalism for punching my car. I got my phone and tried to take a photo of his lorry and number plate but at that moment he came right at me, still shouting and swearing, so I was worried he may hit me next, as he already punched my car. I thought if the guy hits me I will come off second best, so I decided to retreat. I quickly got back into my car and left. When I checked my phone later the photo I tried to take was blurred and useless, so I thought it was pointless to report the incident to the police, as the guy would not be traceable. Over that I forgot about it until I got the letter yesterday in the post. This is the only thing I believe this can relate to, but I have no idea based on what the three above allegations come from There was no road traffic accident, more of a road rage incident. So I am at a loss what to do. I have 28 days to respond. Should I just say yes I was the driver and was there and see what happens next, or should I already make a written statement on the attached piece of paper they sent me and send that with it ? Is there anyone here who would have a rough idea what to do next ? I tried my legal advice line through my Union, but they have sent me from pillar to post, now say it needs to go to a different department again and that would be chargeable as the RTA comes under Criminal Law. So any advice would be appreciated Many Thanks

    • 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.

Dissolves Nails and Pennies

So here is an interesting fact–if you leave pennies or nails in a jar of coke for more than three days they will dissolve. Yup, completely disintegrate. So, that poses the question if it can dissolve metal, what is it exactly doing to our insides? Hmm?

 

Removes Debris from car engines

This trick is used by many experts in the automotive industry and we have to admit we shuddered at the thought of drinking a liquid that can strip oil and engine build-up out of a motor. Many professionals use this technique because it’s cheap and the acidity of the coke works better than most professional cleaners.

 

Strips Paint off metals

If you have metal lawn furniture or an older gate that needs repainting, you can easily strip the old paint off by soaking it in coke. Thanks to the acidity levels and the carbonation, the coke will separate the paint from the metal, making it easier to remove and repaint.

 

Cleanses Toilet Bowl

We’re not sure you would drink toilet bowl cleaner, so we have to ask you to think twice about coke. Instead of that blue block you throw in your toilet bowl, letting a can of coke soak in your toilet overnight is an easy way to clear it of those unsightly stains.

 

Removes Tarnish

If you’ve got some old silverware or candlesticks that have become tarnished over the years, all you need to do is soak them in a bucket of coke. Yep, you read that right! Coke has the ability to remove that nasty tarnish that makes your valuables look like they’ve come from a sunken ship. And you drink this stuff, yummo!

 

Cleans Ovens

Why waste money on expensive oven cleaners? All you need is a bottle of coke and a spray bottle and you’re good to go. The pH levels in coke makes the liquid and amazing substance for cutting grease and the carbonation helps remove tough build-up through the process of oxidation.

 

Cleans up Oil Spills

There’s nothing worse than having an oil stain on your drive way, but have no fear! Now you can clean it up easily by pouring some coke on it. Yes, you read that right, you can actually dilute and clean up oil with this classic soda. That might make you think twice of taking a swig of this sugary arsenic.

 

Removes Rust

Wow, it’s great to think that a nice glass of cold coke can also remove the rust on your bumper. Thanks to having a ph level of 07, Coke has a high acidity rating that can strip rust off of practically anything and can even make chrome look good as new. Drink up!

Simply not true. Yes, Coca Cola contains phosphoric acid (E338), but in very low concentrations. Coca Cola will remove the tarnish from pennies if left to soak overnight, but will not dissolve a coin in four days (or even four years). Our stomachs contain hydrochloric acid in a much higher concentration, so the addition of a trace amount of phosphoric acid will do no harm.

 

An acid is anything with a pH in the range of 0 to 7, neutral pH is 7 (the same as pure water), and an alkaline is 7 to 14. So if your Coke is reading a pH of 7, it is in fact neutral and will not strip off rust, paint, or tarnish. It might strip off wallpaper, but expect it to leave a sticky mess :lol:

Drink up.Good heavens,can you believe it.

Wonder when you mix it with a spirit like Bacardi a little ice and lemon what that concoction does to you.

Tend to fall over myself.

Ah.The thought of it does make you a little thirsty.

But as said i suppose our gastric juices are a match for it.

Bet teeth love it,the cleaning power.Swill it around and watch them fall out.

Coke is disgusting. I really don't like it. As for the acid thing though- it's less acid than stomach acid so therefore I don't think that's an issue.

 

It's the disgustingly sweet taste that gets me.

 

Ugh.

 

Nope it's a nice cup of tea with my pasty!!!

Think you know Irn-Bru? Here are some things you (probably) didn't know

It seems to outsell Coke in Scotland.Quite like it myself.

 

A friend of mines favorite drink is Buckfast a drink made by monks i believe.Bit like ribena but has some strange effects on humans.

And swears by the recuperative powers of Scotland's favourite fizzy drink the morning after.

 

As iconic as whisky and as famous as haggis, Scotland’s other national drink is widely enjoyed not just in the land of its birth but also across the globe. Synonymous with Scottish culture, most Scots claim they couldn’t live without it while others claim it is the best hangover cure around.

 

But how much do you really know about Irn-Bru? Here are 10 facts you (probably) didn’t know:
