    • Thanks, I'll wait and see what they say then give that a go👍
    • cant see any harm in using your banks interweb portal to make direct payments no. just find out their sort/AC number and use your HML ref number as the description line or call and ask them for the details  
    • Hello, am new here and it seems a helpful forum. I am hoping you can help me.   I have tried to search the forum, but cannot find a previous topic like mine.   Basically, I have today received an NHS Penalty notice through the post relating to a prescription item from my doctor.   To cut a long story short, I get one item every month from my doctor, on repeat prescription. I am exempted from paying for this item and have been so for a lot of years. However, after going to the doctors last month, she added another (new) item for something else to my monthly repeat prescription.   So, when I went to collect it from Boots, I explained I had to pay for the new item added onto my prescription and then signed the back for the normal (exempted) item. All I got was a till receipt for the paid for item, which I later binned and thought nothing more about it.   However today, I have received a penalty charge notice relating to this new item (which I did pay for).   How do I go about disputing this penalty notice, as I no longer have the receipt.     Many thanks.
    • Thank you ever so much DX.  "My account is now on hold" whilst they get a copy of my lease apparently, I'm also going to dig out my copy after what you've said.   To the best of my knowledge I don't have a CCJ - I even got placed as a Temp in a insurance company when this started, which would have required financial checks to be passed.   They have tried to justify why I should pay up in three months but my only option is to use a credit card - and I'm sooo reluctant to do that whilst now unemployed.   Part of their latest correspondence had this line which I'm confused by (my home has no mortgage - which I presume what they are trying to get at?) Alternatively, you can complete and return a signed admission form so we can approach your lender for payment. Please advise if you wish us to send you an admission form.   DX - please can I ask if I want to make a token payment direct to HML can I pay into their bank. I can't write cheques anyway and don't imagine PDC will take my card details for anything less then the £550 a month.   (my debit card hasn't that value and not likely to for some time whilst I get myself together and back in employment - but I'm concerned they could try for it and take me into an unauthorised overdraft situation)    Thanks for your help massively.    
    • Sorry for my inability on this, but I thought there was case law already re breaching (but not infringing) GDPR, to the tune of £750?

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

You could be right, UB.

 

I think a concern for a PM could be that if the 1922 committee changes the rules to be able to challenge the party leader more than once a year, it could lead to Conservative leadership being pretty tenuous.

 

Change the rules now, and set a precedent for ever.

I think it is too difficult for any party leader to negotiate withdrawal from the EU on their own. It will always be a cross party task, unless there is a General Election and the country gave the the Tories a big majority. But at the moment that is very unlikely.

 

Unless their policy is just to run the clock out and not ask for an extension again. I'd not be surprised, if a new PM completely ignored parliament and the 48 per cent who voted remain, just to hold their party together

I think they'll do anything to hold their party together.  That's the reason Cameron gave in to a referendum in the first place.  This whole sorry shambles is the result of the Tory party looking inwards and not giving a damn about the country.

O think re voting if you are already a lib or a green - then vote that way

if you were some other party - vote as suggested.

 

 

 

Re running clock out

I also think its highly likely that France at least, quite possibly with some others, will veto a further extension.

If Farages party gets a fair few votes - then its even more likely there will be no further extensions.

No but the MP Brexiters will be empowered and the EU par wont want to put up with his garbage as well as the financial uncertainty - they will want us gone and the issue done..

.. he and his ilk will be in the european parliament - it would matter less to the EU if they were in ours.

.. but we wont have him ....

Is it seven times he's tried to be an MP,  I can't remember?

 

Has he got off the campaign bus yet? The last I read, he was worried about stalkers armed with milkshakes.

yep

 

Farage wont get off the bus if there are a couple of milkshakes about

 

If I'd known I'd have sponsored a few dozen at every location he goes to.

 

What a wimp.

Be interesting to see what happens with May

Seems to me she doesn't have to resign, all the noise is coming from the ones who already tried and failed in the last vote of no confidence

She'd probably win another even if they changed therules to allow one. How stupid would that make them look?

Noisy minority causing all the fuss as usual

That's pretty depressing, TJ.

 

So we won't start hearing what today's results are until late on Sunday, when the rest of Europe has voted. I don't suppose it matters, but I'm not clear if votes will wait to be counted Sunday night or if they'll be counted today and kept secret.

 

The Guardian was saying that broadcasters are restricted in what they can talk about on election days, but newspapers aren't. I wonder if we'll hear what the exot polls are saying?

That its investigative journalists who are raising the issues of blatantly broken electoral rules is the real crime

 

If there isn't surety that the electoral process rules are being STRICTLY adhered too, CLOSELY monitored, and any breaches VIGOROUSLY pursued and SEVERELY punished,

 

what value can any laws have when made by the law makers in power as a result?

The Maybot says she'll resign on 7th June, after Trump's visit. Does she mean it this time?

I worry about what comes after her if I'm honest.  The pool of candidates doesn't fill me with optimism, and they will still more than likely resist a general election.

I agree with you, be careful what you wish for, isn't it? There seems to be every chance that we'll get a hard Brexiter or even someone who thinks trading on WTO terms is a good idea when almost every economist says it isn't, it's quite scary.

Astonishing thing is that the Person most responsible for setting the failed exceptions of a great cake and eat it deal with his lies - is the frontrunner

Should be in jail, not parliament. Let alone in the running to be PM.

 

Johnson makes Farage look honest.

From 10pm UK time then? I read that our results from the north east could be ready as early as 10.15 because if I understood correctly they might be counting about now. It could be a long night for those who want to see it live.

It will be fascinating to see if Farage has done it or if tactical voting has made a difference. It would be amazing if the remain vote was greater than Farage. By that I mean a coalition of LD green snp et al. 


Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

Turnouts although up on last time are apparently still low though.from early reports

That doesn't bode so well.

 

Mind you if the nationalists do poorly on a low turnout, that would be something.

I'm having a no Brexit, No Politics Bank Holiday Monday, I am so sick of it all.  I've promised myself not to see Farage's ugly mug gloating on TV tomorrow, and  Boris Johnson opening his mouth aka Lying.

* When you consider that this was sold by many – and hardest of all by Farage - as the second referendum …

* The Brexit party has had more news coverage than any other party – more than any other 2 parties put together according to some reports…

* The news reports before and after glorifying in showing folk who claimed to be lifelong Tory and Labour voters saying they will/did vote for Farage

* A large portion of the Tory party (the hard Brexiters) clearly saying they would not campaign for the Tory party and would vote for the Brexit party - as clearly seems to have happened …

 * Vince Cables Lib Dems were hardly inspiring in their presentation and campaigning - Farage whipped them all in 'glam' and flim-flam

 

It does seem quite clear that those who want Brexit, deal or no deal, went out and voted for the Brexit party or Ukip.

So given that relatively low turnout compared to UK MP  elections; where Farage does NOT do as well; yet with all indications that Brexiters were out in full force,

I think Brexit barely breaking 1 in 3 of the votes cast  (Brexit and ukip together) is definitive.

and a similar 35/65 result against the Brexiters in a second referendum would be quite acceptable.
