    • I will revert back if i get paid the £321.00 
    • so from august 2019 till june 2020, when harvey's went bang, you did nothing to chase this up? then you wrote your first letter to creation, the finance company?   sorry i must say this story is getting mighty confusing..for want of a different word.    so how did this ultimately end in benson's getting involved?
    • I called the hermes help desk to see if they had done anymore to locate my rather large parcel, this was after submitting the online claim form. He told me they there was no chance of it being found.   I asked  if i am covered, he spoke to the claims department and came back and confirmed it was covered including the shipping cost of £21.00 so £321 would be paid back.    Nothing formal from the claim team in writing so far.        
    • It was The repair team that do work for Harvey’s. They had to come out three times in the space of four months. After the last visit in august 2019 Harvey’s contacted us to say they would replace the sofas
    • If you can spend some time reading around the threads here as I've already suggested, you will understand what we have to say about the so-called insurance cover and how it is unfair and unenforceable. Please familiarise yourself with this. Have they actually agreed to pay out on the insured value? Not only should you have the value of your lost items that you should also have the cost of the delivery as well as the insurance back. They don't care about losing a lot of business. They've got a huge amount of business and although they are the most complained about courier company in the country, I expect that 98% of their deliveries are successful. Of course when you talk about the remaining 2% of millions – it still ends up with a lot of loss parcels. The really disgusting thing is how Hermes then deny liability and try to force people to accept their losses. Most people give up but people who come here normally get their money back – but in your case afraid it does depend on the correct declared value

Are you saying things have improved since 2016?

In terms of the cost of the UK's borrowing, absolutely yes.

Also interesting that Trumpettes are saying quick trade deals with the US can be quickly done 'piece by piece'   aka Anything the USA wants can be done quickly ... especially if it

A key plank of the US incursion is the banning of source of origin labelling so you don't know where the food comes from.

Err not quite. Here's the actual (unedited) quote by Lord James of Blackheath as recorded in Hansard:     https://hansard.parliament.uk/lords/2019-09-06/debates/0C259B8B-7232-4228-BB0

How?

Debt around the world may cost everybody less than it did, because eveyones broke, but how does that help the overall picture of debt, or even just interest as a proportion of GDP .. now, let alone in6 months time when a massive amount of UK business is planned to be sat in Lorry parks?

Boris the Liar says he is ready for no deal:

 

We have almost completed moving the unwanted funds out of the UK with 667 million pounds of outflows in June, 368 million in July and 195 million in August on top of the trillions of pounds of unwanted assetts we have already thrown out during my leadership successfully shrinking the UK economy by over 20% to aid paying for all the increased borrowing

 

and should our plans to use the EU's support of peace in Ireland enabling us to route our goods through NI bypassing our international agreements, we are well on the way to completing the world leading UK infrastructure upgrade of fencing 29 multi-acre fields in which to park our lorries at only £300 per lorry parking fine.

 

and let there be no doubt, that should those hi-tec fields be needed while our plan to use the EU's support of peace in Ireland come to fruition, it will only be temporary, as Boris the Liar is using his world beating skills in planning and building bridges to build a bridge from the new EU Nation of Scotland to the EU's United Island of Ireland across the megaton of dumped WWII explosive to bypass the limited port facilities on the west side of England and foreign tariffs.

 

In the meantime, Grant Shapps will be using the far laxer US registration of his UK private plane as allowed by its US registration to ship essential supplies by the ton to the Westminster subsidised canteen and bar where overbearingly safety concious UK registration would not have allowed the far more efficient overloading and lax maintenance of his plane.

 

Secretary of state for housing Jenrick says he has already paid a nominal retainer (just a few dozen 10's of millions) to a pal with plans to build as many as a million new world leading 2 meter by 2 meter by 2 meter properties in the 29 sites as soon as the Lorries have rotted away creating a firm foundation for the properties to be built on sometime in the coming centuries.

 

Handcock added: This will unquestionably help prevent those horrible foreigners coming into out country and watering down our world beating Covid stats.

 

In the meantime, the UK's lack of any plans to meet its climate commitments have been accelerated saving an equal amount of money, while Peterborough is developed as a seaside resort to take advantage the expected 5 degrees of warming and resultant rise in sea levels.

last downgrade was in 2017

 

Downward pressure on UK ratings is far more recent

as is the Johnsons' governments apparent virulent displays of rank incompetence

To some extent our low long term borrowing costs are down to having our own independent currency from the Euro, investors see us as being able to print our own money if necessary, whether this is a good or bad thing is highly debatable.

 

However, if investors see us as a bad long term bet, then interest rates will need to go up in order to attract them, and our borrowing costs will rise.  All this AA , triple AAA stuff is more about how people see a country long term than in 3 months time. Nobody knows how that will pan out, yet.

print money without growth = inflation and increasingly worthless currency to pay debt interest in dollars = rapid and massive increase in % interest rate charges on debt

 

No if buts or maybes on that.

 

 

addendum

The markets are happy for nations to have large debt at low interest at the moment as there is lots of 'credit' around, but consider a worldwide recovery with the UK lagging due to the double whammy of Brexit and poor covid management

...

More countries wanting credit based on national growth (and thats not a headline return to 1-2% growth after 30% fall)

.. interest rates increase ...

It's also not inconceivable that 'long term', there are people banking that eventually  at some point in the next decade we will finally be led by the adults in the room. Who can at least start the long process of repairing damage.

If the government ploughs on with the bill aimed at over-riding some of the withdrawal agreement/treaty, legal people are saying it could well end up with the ECJ.

The Guardian has just said the permanent secretary of the government legal department has resigned, it seems over the plan to over-ride the withdrawal agreement.

 

Lord Falconer has said that for a good lawyer like this to leave, there must be something rotten about the government. Like breaking the law was one suggestion.

The Northern Ireland secretary, Brandon Lewis, astonished backbenchers when he told the House of Commons:

“Yes, this does break international law"

 

.. anything else he said is really irrelevant

 

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/sep/08/government-admits-new-brexit-bill-will-break-international-law

 

For a change:

https://www.malaymail.com/news/money/2020/09/08/pound-nears-one-month-dollar-low-on-brexit-woes/1901368

 

" Sterling sank close to a one-month low against the dollar low today as investors fretted over heightened Brexit tensions"

 

"The British pound had already dived Monday after Prime Minister Boris Johnson revived the prospect of a no-deal Brexit, saying if an EU trade deal is not struck by October 15 then there will not be one."

 

 

Don't forget our interest payments on the debt mountain are effectively in dollars

The cost just went up again.

Later,

(Brandon Lewis) "batted away a question from Hilary Benn, the chair of the Brexit select committee, who demanded to know if, as expected under the protocol, businesses from Great Britain would have to fill in paperwork, including entry summary declarations, if sending goods to Northern Ireland.

That, said Lewis, was being discussed by the specialised EU-UK committee set up under the withdrawal agreement."

 

 

Hilary Benn did not apparently ask if that was the withdrawal agreement that the UK was undermining and reneging on...

 

 

I think real Tories will be more forthright than Benn

As commented on when Johnson mumbled about messing with the Irish peace process/agreements before

- of which the US is guarantor and the very powerful Irish - US lobby simply wont put up with ..

 

No EU deal

No US deal

 

and for someone who reneges on internationally binding deals - no point in any deals at all with Johnson and his pals is there?

We might be able to come to some agreement with Putin and Kim Jong haircut - maybe China - was that always the plan?

The internal market bill is going well then. The EU have given us three weeks to back down or they will take legal action and try to impose legal penalties or trade sanctions.

 

The pol ed of the Mail says he doesn't see Bozo backing down. Who knows where this could go but there are remedies via the ECJ and other means.

Everybody noticed that Gov, Johnson and now other Johnsonite Ministers like Shapps, Jenrick and Zalawi - when challenged 'wheres the great deal or any deal' they are saying 'we got a great deal when we left' - referring to the withdrawal agreement rather than any significant trade deal with anybody

 

Why is NO-ONE challenging them on that when they spout that utter crap?

Isn't that the deal that they voted for and is so great that they are now desperately breaking international law and the remnants of UK's international reputation to get out of?

This issue isnt that 'populist Liars lie, and that Johnson is the epitome of lying liars,

its that the interviewers don't challenge them on blatant lies like that

 

Thats not impartiality - its utterly failing to do their job and enabling those lying to the British public

 

Oh - and I hope that everyone understands why Johnson wants out of the 'state support' bit of the EU agreement despite the EU having no issues with required support of core national interests and both Germany and France spend far more supporting those that the UK
