    • Done! Thanks again. Will update the thread accordingly.
    • Thank you for your message.  I'm concerned that by complaining to the IPC, and escalating the situation, PCM would be even more inclined to cause problems for me and take action to the fullest extent just to make an example of me.  I can still take the above action as a backup plan if PCM decides to go ahead.

    • 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 saw this a little while ago and thought it may be interesting to many on here.

 

 

http://www.halsburyslawexchange.co.uk/leaving-the-eu-impact-on-case-law-and-legislation/

 

‘the Treaties shall cease to apply [to the UK] from the date of entry of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification…unless the European Council, in agreement with the [uK], unanimously decides to extend this period’ (art 50(3))

 

 

"Insofar as any such amendment or repeal seeks to deny EU law direct effect in UK law prior to the date on which, as a matter of EU law, the Treaties cease to apply to the UK, this would put the UK in breach of its obligations under EU and/or public international law—though it is unclear what legal (as distinct from political) consequences this would have. Depending on the form and content of the future relationship between there UK and the EU, it will also, almost inevitably, be necessary to enact legislation to provide a basis for giving effect to that new relationship."

Hi Dodge

 

I have already posted a reply to this question on the EU thread

 

My answers are based on info gleaned from BBC as well as my Politics lecturer who is also a qualified lawyer and lectures in law.

 

My understanding is that many pieces of EU legislation and directives have been enshrined in UK law in either acts of parliament or as Statutory Instruments. As such whatever happens, even when we are no longer bound by EU law , they will be still be part of UK law. It was mentioned that there are 8000 different pieces of legislation or SI's . As such the effort needed to change every single one would be immense and take a very long time, especially when you consider that a country also needs running and governments change.

 

However

I suspect that the immediate laws that would be changed would be the ones that are high profile and benefit businesses, so the working time directive may be one to go as would deals on maternity/paternity rights and holidays + holiday pay. I think if we look across the pond we may be able to see the way things will progress, very few employment rights.

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

These would have to be binding as they were binding at the time of the ruling. After all, do we pay compensation to the families of people legally murdered by the state because at the time the law of the land said execution was the punishment?

Yes but what about upcoming cases based on similar facts, Uk cases where appeals where denied, cases which were abandoned because of a poor chance of success initially etc.

So you think, there should be compensation to the families of people legally murdered by the state.

Much European law comes from Directives which are (generally) not legally binding by themselves, but instead have to be implemented by UK legislation. For example the Working Time Directive was implemented in the UK by the Working Time Regulations, and the Data Protection Directive was implemented in the UK by the Data Protection Act 1998. As these are all now implemented by UK legislation they will remain in force indefinitely unless the UK parliament decides to repeal or amend the legislation.

 

Some European laws come from the EC Treaty or are in the form of European Regulations. Currently these are legally binding themselves and do not need to be implemented by local UK legislation. As these laws are not supported by local UK legislation, they will cease to be law in the UK, after the UK' has formally left the EU (this probably won't happen until 2018).

 

Most employment and consumer laws were introduced by Directives and then implemented by UK legislation. So they will all remain in force indefinitely, even after we have left the EU, unless the UK parliament decides to repeal them.

agree. and any repeals/amendments wont be retrospective.

the ECJ only gets/got involved re a breach/issue of eu law/regs.

and, eu will apply until a formal exit. and then keep in mind that if eng/wales continue to trade with the eu, we might have to keep some trade laws/regs, depending.

that directive was mostly effective domestically, via SI, from feb 2011. so, it remains unless repealed/amended.

The consumer credit directive was implemented in the UK through an amendment to the Consumer Credit Act 1974, and supporting UK statutory instruments. Those will remain in force after Brexit.

Secondary legislation cannot exist without primary legislation of course, nothing to do with the government.

an Act of P allows for its 'amendment' via an SI. P (govt) of course enacts the act.

The European Communities Act 1972 allows statutory instruments to be used to implement directives. See http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1972/68/section/2. A similar route was used for things like the Working Time Regulations (also a statutory instrument implementing a EU directive).
