    • Hi, thanks for posting – and thanks for the offer. Your kind of specialist knowledge would be extremely useful if these topics come up. I understand what you're saying – whether it's possible to have an alert sent to you whenever there is a post mentioning "jewellery". I don't think this is possible – but it's a good idea that we don't have the skills to develop such an application to add onto this forum platform. A partial solution – but probably not very good – would be for you to follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/Real_CAG and if somebody posted jewellery problem and happens to mention "jewellery" in the subject line, then that will be part of the title which is tweeted out then it might be easier for you to keep an eye on. However it would mean that you would overlook other threads which were posted which didn't specifically mention that word in the title. I'm afraid that it's probably rather burdensome if you are busy – but am afraid the anything aim think of at the moment is to visit us regularly and to search on "jewellery" or any other relevant search terms. Not very good really – that if you do find an opportunity to come in and help with your expertise, that would be enormously appreciated

    • I've merged the thread with the earlier one which you posted. Please don't start new threads on the same topic. It is not helpful to anyone including to you.  
    • Hello and thank you for reply, I really appreciate!    Basically, I logged a complaint with CISAS and then reached out to all the directors Vodafone Limited and Vodafone Group Plc. I researched directors via companies house and guessed their emails. I also reached out to Ms Lamprell via Linkedin where she replied, gave me her email and said to she would have someone look into it. I sent her an email where I tried to present my case as a some sort of consultant giving insight about what I have learned about their customer service and what they could improve, mainly suggesting to hire a really highly trained professional in English and & Welsh law, so that person could take the cases that are being escalated and also train other staff. The next day, Vodafone came back to me with settlement offer. I believe everything has been pushed by Ms Lamprell who really seems a top executive to me (she will apparently receive MBE for her business services) and understands that customers are in fact important stakeholders; although the truth is I did email a few other directors too, so who knows...   In the settlement letter they pretty much negligently ignored almost all my listed points about the things where they were arguably very wrong; but what they did was they admitted some extra things where they were wrong and on that basis waived the charges and on that basis they will reverse the default on my credit file as well. Moreover, the settlement they offered me was based on the distress scale presented by CISAS where £200 is maximum for severe distress and they added £50 so I should get £250 altogether. I accepted the settlement, simply because I am too exhausted with this case.   To be honest I am still upset about the case and don't feel very satisfied given what I have been through because of Vodafone. I do believe if I pushed further and took them to small claims court or if I somehow pressed further through CISAS, I could get compensated for the actual damage caused to me and my business. I would need to play on a higher level with their lawyers for that, and it would require me extra time to study legislation and I would have to take extra risks too. I am honestly very upset about Vodafone's abusive systems, as there must be many vulnerable people going through it and I think it is unlikely it ends up as well for them -- quite the opposite.    Given anyones experience I would love to know how would you evaluate risks of pushing this further and what else could be done.    Thanks so much for all the answers in advance, it's a wonderful forum!

I'm thinking that getting the Chinese to pay for HS2 [and benefit from any profits it manages to make] is a way for the government to avoid forking out £100bn or more for the project.

 

Along with links with Russia being talked about, this is a concern.

So do the Chinese think they can do it cheaper and faster by walking over workers, environmental and peoples rights as they do in China?

or do they think they can reduce costs by dumping Chinese steel through their 'british' steel company?

or do they perhaps think that they can replace Johnsons choices for running and building?

 

??

and amidst mounting pressure from teh US and australia re Huawwei

the US/trans pacific (since when was that next door) deal would seem to be even more feeble than even I thought it was (which wasn't much)

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-trade-deals-us-trump-asia-boris-johnson-eu-a9336331.html

 

"Studies expected to show the UK will gain little from post-Brexit trade deals with the US and the big Asian economies are being suppressed by the government, The Independent can reveal.

Analyses were completed as long ago as 2017 into the probable impact on growth from agreements long hailed as the prize for leaving the EU, but ministers are refusing to release them.

One trade expert said he had little doubt they were being concealed because they would – like independent studies – reveal that significant damage from new trade barriers with the continent will far outweigh the gain from other deals."

 

 

 

"Alan Winters, professor of economics at the University of Sussex, joined with Labour in calling on ministers to reveal what they had been told, saying: “The entire Brexit debate has been conducted in a great fog of obfuscation.”

 

 

"The secrecy leaves a November 2018 Treasury document as the only official forecast – putting the GDP gain from deals with the US, Australia and New Zealand at a puny 0.2 per cent."

 

 

 

 

Now too me than seems to be FAR LESS the the UK benefits we are losing from the EU-Japan deal alone, let alone everything else.

The immigration clampdown has started. Reading this, I can't help thinking that employers needing waiting staff, carers and agricultural jobs are going to struggle.

 

The government don't seem to be listening.

‘Economically inactive’ Britons could do jobs in sectors where there are shortages under new system,

says Priti Patel

 

Patel insisted that 20% of available working age people were inactive and could be encouraged into work.

When challenged on this figure, she said that plans to raise the working age to 80 would make them true.

 

'I saw you at your care home reaching out for some cabbage from your wheelchair at the dinner table - entirely unaided,

... so don't tell me you can't reach out and pick cabbages

Priti was also challenged over whether her parents who arrived in the 1960s from Uganda would be able to immigrate with the new rules.

 

She didn't really have an answer.

 

I don't suppose the pension age of 80 will apply to MPs?

I heard the answer was 'My parents were persecuted so they would be OK anyway, not like those middle eastern types who are just trying to escape a war and being beheaded or shot, let alone those lazy EU migrant workers who are just after an easy time picking a few cabbages. I mean, thats so easy our disabled and old can do that for their benefits... which they wont need as they will have a job.

I read that Priti's parents arrived through choice from Uganda in the 60s, before Idi Amin threw out Asians in 1972. So they weren't necessarily vulnerable at the time. Someone online asked if Priti was made Home Secretary so they could send her out to justify decisions like this one.

 

The part about retraining pensioners and sick people is, err, ambitious.

I don't condone death threats to Mps in any way, and think thats abhorrent,

and even if PP did die for whatever reason, I would go to the pub and throw the wake of the century to mourn her passing.

The real burning question is about us as a society. We knew what they would be like but still voted for them to have an unopposed mandate for the next 5 years. Why?

Some say it was to 'Get Brexit Done' because a lot of people wanted to stop hearing about the subject. It seems they just wanted it to stop, regardless of the outcome.

But aside from Brexit people had the opportunity to see Boris & co and what they would be like . Yet still wanted it to happen. We knew it would be a car crash. Yet the country gave it the full go ahead.

1. Many were sick of getting nowhere

2. Nobody trusted Corbyn to get anywhere they wanted to go

3. In fact, Nobody trusted Corbyn at all - they at least trusted Johnson to be Johnson and be British ,,, even if a shoddy kind of British

No, I disagree people (most people) aren’t stupid. In fact it’s wrong to say they are. They knew damn well what they were getting into, and went for it anyway.

 

i kind of wish it was because of stupidity, that would be less disturbing.

I didn't say they were stupid.  It's just almost impossible to tell fact from fiction living in such a hyper normalised world.  Hence why most brexiteers don't believe you when you state a fact to them.. they think facts are the work of fiction and fake news.  Equally, a lot of what is said on the opposite side of the fence sounds like fake news and made up nonsense.  Although, we know for an absolute undeniable fact that brexit was based on lies.  I'm just trying to sound impartial!

Yup, just looking on Twitter sometimes I feel like disconnecting from the Internet. Seeing some of the comments. We can’t put the genie back I. The bottle. BS and fake news is here to stay.

Although I'm at a loss to know what left wing propaganda I fell for to make me vote for Labour.  But I guess that is the point.  Everyone takes a particular point of view
