    • Hi   Sorry for the delay in getting back to you don't worry we have not forgot you.   So they have destroyed ALL DATA personal to you as you did not take the Property. (really they have put there foot in it)   If they hold no personal data then they have NO evidence of what was agreed to with your Holding Deposit and the refusal to return it.   Now if it was me I would let them drop themselves in it even further by responding to there SAR response.   Thank you for your SAR Response dated XX/XX/2019   Due to this response I require clarification of the following:   1. Have you followed the Data Protection Act 2018 & General Data Protection Regulations on Destroying My Personal Data?   2. If you have Destroyed All My Personal Data then what documentation do you hold that I have signed/agreed to the Holding Deposit being Non-Refundable and to provide copies of this documentation.   3. I require a copy of your Policy on Holding Deposits   Please bear in mind the above is what I would do.   I do think it is looking like you may have to go down the court route (make sure and have a good read of that link I previously gave you to the Tenants Fee Act).
    • HI   Firstly the parking in front of your drive, do you have a pavement with a Drop Kerb in front of your property to access your driveway, if so are they infringing on the Drop Kerb? (note your can ask the council to to paint a white line with lines at the end on the road in front of the drop kerb please note there may be a cost from the council to do so)   As for the CCTV look at this ICO link: https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/domestic-cctv-systems-guidance-for-people-using-cctv/   Due to the new DPA/GDPR if you have CCTV on your Property and it views outside of that Properties Bounderies they then need to register as a Data Controller with the ICO.   So I would make a Formal Complaint in writing to the Councils Data Controller, ICO (specifically asking if this individual is Registered with them as a Data Controller) & Police, you need to keep a good paper trail of this individuals actions.   I hope this individual knows the Law on Harassment as from your thread that is the impression I get is no matter what you do they will find something else to complaint about.  
    • Most guarantees are not transferable anyway to the new owner so why a solicitor should request it is pointless.The quotes should suffice to prove the work was carried out.   Andy
    • Apologies for the prolonged radio silence!   To cut a very long story short, I went back to Barclaycard (because I bought the car with my VISA card) and they offered to repair the car at a cost of £2500.   We accepted the offer because we were advised that even if we went to court and won the case, there was no guarantee that the dealer would give us our money back anyway or would end up paying us £10 a week for the next umpteen years.   The decision to have the car repaired was also made in the light of the fact that apart from the gearbox issue the rest of the car was in good nick. It is running fine after nearly 4 months now, so even if our friend gets a few more years out of it it will have been worth it.   Now that it is all settled I can reveal the name of the dealer - it was Thatcham Motor Company, in Thatcham, Berks. Very pleasant to deal with at first whilst everything was ok but boy oh boy, beware if anything goes wrong!   Similarly Momentum Warranties who provided the 6 months "warranty". On paper this warranty apparently covers practically every conceivable fault that the car might develop until you try to make a claim!   It seems that only if a component physically breaks that any cover is provided, otherwise they will hide behind the "fair wear and tear" get-out clause. Can an ECU unit be subject to wear and tear?   I would not touch either of these outfits again with the proverbial barge pole. Buyer beware!   One further thing I forgot to mention. We ran up considerable expenses trying to sort all the issues - the engineer's reports, travel costs etc.   Is it too late to try to claim these back from the dealer now? I just ran out of energy by the time Barclaycard agreed to pay for the repair but now the dust has settled I am up for it again!   Would this have to be done via the Small Claims Court?
    • no rush yet not due for 3 weeks as per andyorch's information above   i'm sure we'll get time before then.   dx

It's Boris vs Hunt now. Lots of rumours of Boris's backers 'lending' votes to Hunt because they didn't want to go up against Gove in the final two.

 

Europe think we're heading for no deal.

Thats what boris wants. A no deal,  and then sell everything off to his best mate trump.

Trumps even said he wants everything on the table to broker a deal, and boris agrees with him.   EVERYTHING, including the NHS

So it will be an unholy alliance of Boris, Trump and Putin.  Out of those which one will hold little or no power?  Is this what's meant by 'taking back control'.

 

I should think Trump and Putin are agreeing the carve up right now.

I think HB hit the nail on the head with the Johnson/Farage match

 

The Tories under anyone are extremely unlikely to win any general election.

[sounds like} Hunt has said that theres no way he would call one.

 

Johnson Campaigning with Farage .....

 

Both are 'pals' of Trump

Johnson IS linked with Bannon and Farage ...

 

 

There would appear to be in the order of 25 labour MP's who would vote for a no deal exit, and have indicated they would vote to prevent the overthrow of of a Tory hard Brexiter.

 

I think there are far more than that Tories who WOULD vote to prevent a no deal Brexit, but there are at least 70 Tories who would vote for a no deal Brexit.- possibly more.

 

 

 

.. and of course Corbyn has now started the process to deselect any Labour Mp's who aren't Corbynites ready for the general election.

 


I express my honestly held opinions - they are nothing more or less than that.

... Its just doing some due diligence that makes them seem unusual ...

Yup they would not oppose a no deal, but ... Almost impossible to imagine they wouldn't vote to bring down a Tory Government.

I get the distinct impression they would not vote to bring down a government thats promising Brexit deal or no deal until after Oct and a hard Brexit.

 

I don't doubt that would suit Corbyn too.

Did anyone see the article about the Observer being given footage of Steve Bannon talking about how he helped Boris write a speech about his resignation? 

 

Boris is denying it,  I just hope that someone confronts him with the film clips.

But taking an average of current voting intention polls in the General Election, putting them into a Swingometer (seat calculator) leaves Labour  46 short of a majority. Even though the Brexit party takes 20% of the vote, they don't come out with any MP's, but the Lib Dems are massively increased.   Labour's most likely option for power is a Lab / Lib Dem / Plaid coalition, surely they must be thinking about this when looking to be pursuing a hard Brexit. 

 

Perhaps not a wise thing when needing to court the Lib Dems or even the SNP.

Lets not forget that the EU is getting fed up with this.

 

Without some good reason for the EU to give an extension - a darn good reason,

There will likely be veto's - France at least and they are unlikely to be alone.

 

Probably what Johnson, Farage and Corbyn are hoping for.

'Its not our fault, its those damn Europeans thgat hate us. They just wouldn't give us an extension'

 

 

I think that it likely both Labour and the Tories will get similar results in a general election as in the European elections.

They are doing nothing to change the peoples opinions, and much to confirm those negative opinions.

I can't imagine me voting Labour (or Tory) in any circumstances with Corbyn now. That is from a lifelong labour voter (apart from a couple of times in locals councils for some good people - even to stop Johnson.

 

 

Oh

and that tactical voting advice seems to have been wrong in my area(not 100% certain though)

Tactical votes should have voted libs not green.

I think it will be different in a General election. Brexit party votes do not equal Brexit party MP's because of our weird voting system (remember UKIP in 2015).  Lib Dem votes will win them marginals (eg Oxford West in 2018) with tactical voting.  Plus turnout in a general election is always far greater.

 

And certainly the EU could kick us out, but it's hard to see them wanting to look like the bad guy here, and Macron has to talk tough because he is desperately unpopular at home.

Same here from a habitual Tory voter until a few years ago.  If we're all this disillusioned with the self-serving lowlifes that now inhabit Westminster we have a real issue deciding where to place our mark on a ballot paper?

This looks tricky for Boris.

 

As I understand it he can't guarantee a frictionless border, but the US Congress has said it will block a trade deal with the UK if Ireland's security is affected. The article also says a trade deal will take at least 4-5 years to agree even wothout objections.

 

How is Bojo going to replace trade with Europe over those years?

Stop using logic and reason HB. Thats not what Brexit is about for the Brexiters.

 

Trump will do us,

... the best biggest deal ever

... from his prison cell

 

That is: the best biggest deal ever for his bleached chicken and hormone injected beef selling US funders

.. and being as we will be outsiders breaching the EU's market rules and regs because of any US deal, it will only be at a 70% premium despite us being a captive market - as they like us so much.

 

 

We have actually finished off paying back the US for the last time they gave us a 'great deal'

Haven't we?

 

 

 

 

All that aside - it is one of the crucial points you are highlighting there HB

over simplified summary

https://www.quora.com/Following-WWII-did-the-US-consider-forgiving-the-debt-owed-by-the-UK-to-the-US-If-not-why-not

 

Included was the priceless bases we had to effectively give them

.. including evicting British citizens from Islands so the yanks could have them for military bases..

(see also recent news items related to' windrush')

 

addendum

This descibes the US treachery better

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-American_loan

 

 

"At the start of the war, Britain had spent the money that they did have in normal payments for materiel under the "US cash-and-carry" scheme. Basing rights were also traded for equipment, e.g., the Destroyers for Bases Agreement, but by 1941 Britain was no longer able to finance cash payments and Lend-Lease was introduced. Lend Lease aid did not have to be paid back, but the other loans did.

 

Large quantities of goods were in Britain or in transit when Washington suddenly and unexpectedly terminated Lend-Lease on 21 August 1945. The British economy had been heavily geared towards war production (around 55% GDP) and had drastically reduced its exports.

 

The UK therefore relied on Lend-Lease imports to obtain essential consumer commodities such as food while it could no longer afford to pay for these items using export profits. The end of lend-lease thus came as a great economic shock."

In about 10 years time, there will be millions of younger voters, watching these events, who will take revenge on the Tory's for Brexit. Today 13 - 17 year olds, are watching now, combined with the loss of older Tories, and hopefully someone competent in charge of Labour will doom the Tories, long term.

I think both Johnson and corbyn DON'T want a fresh referendum, as it would almost certainly be remain despite 80% of media being pro Brexit.

 

Corbyn wants a general election as he thinks the Tory chaos and policies (behind the spin) and especially Johnson will make him the least worst option.

I don't think he'll win - not even biggest minority

 

Johnson wants Brexit - then a general election as late as possible - but I think parliament will prevent that thank God - and would force a no confidence vote to do that

 

... so I think Johnson will try - then call a general election while while Labour under corbyn is at its weakest and most unelectable.

Relying on that and the split remain vote to give him a majority.

I don;t think he'll get a majority, although he could easily end up as the largest minority.

 

The lib-dems will then be in a position of negotiating a coalition with Labour - unless Johnson agrees (- he might if he has the libdems to blame.and power depends on it)  to a fresh referendum.

Thats unlikely to go well given Corbyns jihad mentality - but is probably the best we can hope for.

 

 

 

 

Of course, the trouble with any deal agreed :

with Johnson he'd welch on it

- Corbyn would twist it to suit his religion.

Excellent, but sadly not enough to stop a No Deal Brexit. It's also interesting to see how Labour were Decimated.

It would be really interesting to know just who switched votes, where did the swing to the Lib Dems come from and the same about Brexit. I suspect both parties gained seats from each of the two major parties.

 

What it does perhaps show is that if there were an election before the referendum then unless the Tories and the Brexit Party split the seats, i.e Tories stood aside in some labour strongholds then the anti anti Brexit (as it stands) coalition could be formed.

 

It never ceases to amaze me how partisan alignment has fallen by the wayside and how , in particular working class people vote for right wing parties - although I suppose when we look at history nothing should surprise me

 

on a side note- if you haven't watched Years and Years on I player you really should - not only does it have the excellent Russel Tovey and Anne Reid in it, it is a stark warning about what could happen. 


Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

Some good analysis here, on Radio 4 this morning

 

The elections experts, John Curtice, says the result of the byelection should make Boris Johnson cautious about going for a snap election.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme he said the vote showed the Tories were enjoying a “Boris bounce” but only at the expense of the Brexit party.

He said: “In an early general election at the moment at least, the Conservatives would be at risk of losing.”

He added: “When thinking about the prospects for an early general election. If the Liberal Democrats could pick up 40 or 50 seats, winning a large overall majority, which seems to be the point of a snap election, would become rather more difficult for the Conservatives would otherwise be the case.”
