    • Winemark the wine merchant ltd northern ireland
    • Hi Sweet and welcome to CAG   Are you willing to disclose the employer in this case ?
    • I was the manager of an off license. We reopened on mon 30th, I received a very large delivery which we weren’t expecting (and I wasn’t told about until 2hrs before by my line manager) all managers received a text from regional manager which stated when deliveries are coming in shops are to be closed. He didn’t ring this info in, I just read the text.   When I saw how big del was (completely covered the floor, could barely move around it) I kept my shutters closed and proceeded to pack delivery away. The store remained closed and we lost 5hrs trading time. I didn’t seek permission from manager to do this, with the current safety precautions enacted (only allowed 1 customer in at a time as manadated by HQ) I didn’t feel this could be safely achieved with 3 members of staff in and all the stock everywhere.  regional manger calls into shop at 4:50, hits roof that it’s closed and storms out of shop after exclaiming I didn’t have the authority to keep shop closed.   Fast forward 1 1/2 weeks later today regional manager comes in at 4pm with prepared questions, I answer truthfully stated I didn’t think it was safe I had the best interests of business at heart that I had turned up for work every day since this incident and nothing had been said. He said that they will examine this information and can come back for more evidence if needed.    He goes away again and at 5:59 (my shift finished at 6) he came back in saying they’d examined all the evidence and that their decision was dismissal, I was to gather my things and there’d be a letter in the post with information should I wish to appeal.  quite a shock.   I will see what this letter states as their reasons I committed gross misconduct, I am a bit at a loss as to what I specifically did to be deemed gross misconduct.   I’ve worked for them for 10years, taken 2 days off sick in that entire time and had a faultless record   I’m just flabbergasted they’d immediately sack me for something which happened in unprecedented times when all I was trying to do was keep myself and my staff safe and safely make their store presentable and adequately accessible for all.   Any thoughts on the above? Obviously this is all too fresh as it happened only hours ago 
    • Hi KL1 and welcome to CAG.   You say the buyer contacted you saying, "...... he had seen it cheaper somewhere else and wanted to cancel the sale."   Do you have this in writing and, if so, in what format ?   It would be useful if you could tell us more about the item you sold.    
    • I wanted to report a success against UKPS that started in Dec 2018 and was concluded today.  I did do a bit of reading through this site for guidance though so thanks for that!    in Dec 2018 a family member reversed onto a private road in Coventry and waited about 1 minute or so to collect their partner.  Meanwhile the owner was loitering and waiting to catch anyone on his land with photos.  2 photos were taken about 40 seconds apart.   With my help I disputed the charge stating that the driver had not "parked" but had only stopped momentarily to pick up a passenger.  I did not state at any point who the driver was.   UKPS from Leamington Spa were trying to enforce this and insisted on the charge of £60 + £100 being paid.  I sent a 2nd letter confirming the position of the 1st letter and that no further letters would be sent.   4 threatening letters were sent from Debt Recovery Plus and Zenith Collections and duly ignored.  The last kindly offered to settle for £136!    Then a letter from Gladstones Sols threatening the same was also sent, and mentioned Beavis vs Parking Eye.  This was also duly ignored.   Finally a Letter Before Action was sent by email.  Aha!  Game on.  They cited Vehicle Control Services Ltd v Nick Idle and Vehicle Control Services Limited v Damen Ward and that stopping for any time is a breach, and it was only the length of time stopped that may affect the value of the breach.   I said that signage said no PARKING, not no STOPPING and that appropriate case law was JOPSON v HOMEGUARD where the judge specifically said "Merely to stop a vehicle cannot be to park it"   They then came back at me with an evidence bundle they were allegedly going to use at court against me, stated the signage was clear,  a nd repeated their "no stopping" case   I came back at them with the same as before and added that, in their world, someone coming onto the land and wanting to read the signage would have precisely NO TIME AT ALL to so as, according to them, even stopping for mere seconds was a breach.  I also threatened that I would claim costs for my wasted time in dealing the case.   Today they emailed me as follows: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Good Morning,   Thank you for your correspondence. We apologise for the delay in our response, however as no further action has taken place we trust you agree no prejudice has been suffered.   Please note that our Client has cancelled our instruction on this matter and the matter is considered closed.   No further action is warranted. Kind Regards ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   16 months on and UKPS gave in

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.

I'm not getting into this again... shall we just change it to propaganda in general so as to come together on the issue..

 

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
