    • Hi Honeybee13 No i 100% did not received reminder if i did it would have set alarms bells ringing that something wrong 
    • Hopefully Man in the Middle will be able to pop in today, but he does have a day job. Also the SJNP notes say they sent a reminder i did definitely receive this Are you saying you did receive the reminder or you didn't please? HB  
    • Thank you Man in the Middle, Everyone I know this may not make a difference but is it worth mentioning the fact i did believe i sent everything correctly but with all going on with my mother at the did not realise that stamp was not valid? Also the SJNP notes say they sent a reminder i did definitely receive this if i did it would have prompted me to realise something was wrong and rectified. I have to fill the form in online today so any more advice is gratefully received. The area is Gwent in South Wales it states on the form if i plead not guilty then send me the date of the trial Sorry as i've stated previously totally new to this and thank you for you assistance  i know you cannot say for certain but realistically by pleading the above what would be the most likely outcome be ? is it still likely to be 3 points and £100 fine ? or am i likely to receive higher and more fees?
    • Vennells evidence starts this morning at 09.45. Nick Wallis has made an interesting observation in his blog yesterday or today that yesterday's witness, Alwen Lyons, implied that forensic accountants Second Sight weren't doing a good job on their investigation of SPMs' complaints about Horizon. Nick's theory is that not being good at a job seems to be telling the Post Office things it doesn't want to hear. And that having been told things they didn't want to hear about the Horizon system, that training was terrible and their investigators and prosecuters weren't good enough, they decided the solution was to sack Second Sight and buy more expensive advice in the hopes of getting an answer they liked.    
    • Thanks for the quick response! the way they’ll have found so far is LinkedIn, I use this for business and work etc. I’ll have to look into the settings and see if I can make this more private I have no other social media.    so to confirm, best step is to directly mail my address to emirates and HSBC directly then ignore idrww and judge and priestly? should I be telling both the uk collection agencies that I’m only going to be dealing with the banks directly and not with them?    would you recommend creating a monthly payment plan to the banks or not?    Thanks,

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi, the answer I need is on the jsa claimant commitment of " most hours I can work each week".

The reason is I have a long term disability, 2 years ago on my claim I had this on 24 hours.

 

I started work and claimed working tax credits on 24 hours.

but my employer was pushing my hours in a very demanding job for my disability up to 50 plus hours per week.

I complained to head office and got no where so resigned from the position.

 

I made a claim for jsa today and the "work coach" said that as I had done 50 hours then 40 hours full time would be on my claim for "hours I can work".

I wondered if there was a set amount of hours like working tax credits if you are disabled that is accepted by them to put on the form.

 

thank you.

Standard is 40 hours per week. Suggest a letter from your Doctor is obtained and supplied to the Job Centre work coach for a tailored commitment, to take into account your health.

It should be tailored to your need and take into account how your disability affects any work you can do.

 

Anything over 16 hours takes you off JSA anyway so it shouldn't be an issue, they should also tailor the traveling time to suit your needs as well i.e. 60 minutes instead of the normal 90 mins that is used.

To add to this; If the OP is reliant on public transport, then available hours must take in to account the published timetables. i.e. If the first bus is at 07:00 and the last one back is at 18:00 Mon-Fri, then available hours are 08:30 to 16:30 Mon-Fri.

I would add and please correct me anyone if I am wrong.

 

The JSA job seekers agreement rebranded claimant commitment is nothing but a roadmap of how you will proceed in your job searching activities.

As far as the law is concerned it is a scrap of paper and you do not have to take any or all the steps agreed to in your agreement.

 

The legal test is are you actively seeking employment (ASE) And that means take more than 2 steps in any week in normal circumstances and they cannot lawfully you for failing to seek work. And as said previously make sure you get your circumstances taken onto consideration, it is a negotiation so do not accept everything they say without you having input.

Among the requirements necessary to claim JSA:

• you’re available for work

• you’re actively seeking work

• you don’t have an illness or disability which stops you from working

 

You may get ESA if your illness or disability affects your ability to work and you’re:

• under State Pension age

• not getting Statutory Sick Pay or Statutory Maternity Pay and you haven’t gone back to work

• not getting Jobseeker’s Allowance

 

You can apply for ESA if you’re employed, self-employed, unemployed or a student on Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment.

 

Don’t you think, in your circumstance as you state them, it would be more advantageous for you to claim ESA. (Employment and Support Allowance)?
