    • Farage has agreed to be interviewed by Nick Robinson on Panorama. 7pm this Friday, BBC1. He didn't do very well last time he was questioned on specific policies.
    • I did what I told my husband not to do…and I telephoned them. All credit where it’s due, the lady on the phone was very helpful. I’m not gonna lie I broke down on the phone as this has been incredibly stressful. Perhaps that helped, but I would like to think they just realised they sold us a faulty car.    so we only bought one extended warranty and that was with Nissan. The car salesman gave us the hard sell and we fell for 100%! Part of the sell was if there was ever a problem then we would only ever take the car to a Nissan garage. There was a problem after a few days and we were instructed to go to a third party grange! We contacted Nissan on the phone and they said they would put on a complaint for us so maybe that helped too.    we just want to try and get all of our spend back now. The deposit, money for the finance and money for the extended warranty. I reload we will probably have to pay costs but I guess we can’t argue with that. We just need a new car!!!! Aaarrgghhhh!    thanks so much for your help once again. 
    • Right I see I didn't realise it had to be laid out like that. I have had another go, sorry I'm really struggling here! 1.The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made. 2. The claimant has thus far been unable to produce any evidence that the alleged debt has been legally assigned to them. Nor have they been able to provide evidence that notice of assignment was given to the defendant on the dates stated in the particulars of their claim. 3. The claimant has given no details as to the breakdown of their claim or what dates it relates to. As a result the defendant is unable to specifically defend the claim until the claimant can show how the amount has been reached. In the claimants particulars of claim, the claimant openly admits that they have a copy of the agreement and its terms and conditions but have failed to provide these to the defendant. Pursuant to the civil procedure rules Practice Direction 16 (7.3) Where a claim is based upon a  written agreement: (1) a copy of the contract or documents constituting the agreement should be attached to or served with the particulars of claim and the original(s)  should be available at  the hearing. With the court’s permission the Claimant is put to strict proof to:- a) show and disclose how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; b) show and disclose how the Claimant has reached the amount claimed ; c) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim; 4. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed. 5. It is therefore denied that the defendant is indebted to the claimant as alleged or at all.

    • 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.

MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis is suing Facebook for defamation following “repeated fake adverts from [problem]mers it refuses to stop publishing”


In a statement on MoneySavingExpert, Lewis wrote: “I get about five messages a day from people saying, ‘I’ve just seen your Bitcoin ad and wanted to check it.’ If that is the number who get through to me, how many more must be just taken in?”


Well i have seen these adverts have you.

I very nearly lifted a floorboard to take out some of my secret stash after thinking well he is a chap you can trust.

I came so close but nailed the floorboard back down again.

The phone did not stop ringing for weeks.Trying to entice the old owl.From all over the world.

Has anyone else nearly fallen into the trap.

Or maybe fallen straight through it.

Just wondering as you do.

Well news is coming out fast now.

Martin Lewis to sue Facebook over fake ads which empties peoples pockets out of thousands .

The commentator and financial journalist is claiming defamation over allegations that the site is publishing fake adverts using his image causing vulnerable people to hand over thousands of pounds to criminals.


He said the company had hosted more than 50 of the fake ads and that it had failed to act because it was motivated by "greed".


Trying to prise money out of the old owl is hard to do,nearly though.

Next Predator waiting in the wings though.

Be careful out there.

facebook says that all he has to do is contact them and they will look into the ads.

Yeah, right. What about not taking money from crooks in the first place and they wouldnt be in this position. Greed and more greed.

He has sued before and won so should be a walkover and I am dying to know waht the defence will be

Bookface's defence will probably be along the lines of... "Well, they told us they were Martin Lewis and we had no reason to doubt them :noidea:"

Please note that my posts are my opinion only and should not be taken as any kind of legal advice.
In fact, they're probably just waffling and can be quite safely and completely ignored as you wish.
