    • I did as soon as i received the grade, i was on annual leave over December and my line manager was due to leave on the 15th December, i did not receive the review until i returned to work. SO i never had the opportunity to have a review. I challenged it straight away and raised a complaint to HR, who never responded to me,
    • 2 foot of sea level rise   The Thwaites Glacier — dubbed the “Doomsday” glacier because of the grave impacts for global sea level rise if it melts — is breaking down “much faster” than expected, according to a peer-reviewed study published on Monday in the academic journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Using satellite imagery, scientists determined that widespread contact between the glacier and warm ocean water is speeding up the melting process. The climate crisis is interrupting natural processes across large parts of the continent, according to the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition. The glacier, roughly the size of the United Kingdom, could cause global sea levels to rise more than two feet if it melts completely, according to the study. “Thwaites is the most unstable place in the Antarctic and contains the equivalent of 60 centimeters of sea level rise,” study co-author Christine Dow said in a statement. “The worry is that we are underestimating the speed that the glacier is changing, which would be devastating for coastal communities around the world,” she continued. Read the full story here.       or here ... from the India civil service currents affairs exam Doomsday glacier Antarctica‘s Thwaites Glacier, roughly the size of Britain, is a fast-moving glacier in West Antarctica. Because of the risk it faces — and poses — Thwaites is often called the Doomsday Glacier. Because of its size (1.9 lakh square km), it contains enough water to raise the sea level by more than half a metre. Thwaites’s melting already contributes 4% to global sea level rise each year. Thwaites are important for Antarctica as it slows the ice behind it from freely flowing into the ocean. Credits: BBC Vigorous melting Salty and relatively warm ocean water is infiltrating beneath Thwaites Glacier, leading to significantly speedy melting. This process, termed as “vigorous melting“, is eroding its stability. However, its potential collapse could lead to a staggering 10-foot rise in sea levels, posing a dire threat to coastal communities worldwide. Previous studies discovered a deep connection to the east through which deep water flows from Pine Island Bay. That study also attributed the melting to the heat transport caused by channels bringing warm water towards the glacier from the north. With melting, glaciers become light and float off the land where they used to be situated. The resulting retreating grounding line exposes more of a glacier’s base to seawater, increasing the risk of melting. Since the late 1990s, the glacier has seen a 14km retreat of its “grounding line.” The grounding line is the point where the ice flowing off the land and along the seabed floats up to form a huge platform.   https://www.pmfias.com/current-affairs-for-upsc-civil-services-exam-may-28-2024/   or here Satellite data reveals Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier is melting faster than we thought | Space WWW.SPACE.COM Seawater rushing miles beneath the glacier makes the ice more vulnerable to melting.

    • 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 all.


Right so I had a Vanquis credit card, it defaulted in 2015 with about 3k owing.


Ive had various letters about it from Cabot (whom the debt was assigned to at some point) and Dydens.


In 2016 I recived a latter from Drydens, threatening legal action and also making lots of inaccurate statements about the CPR and legal process, etc...I replied to Drydens asking for the usual stuff, letter of assignment etc, they replied saying they were halting any legal action.


In 2017 I received a letter from cabot again saying no legal action would be taken.


Then last week I received a letter from Mortimer Clarke saying that they were now the solicitor AND also including form N434 - Change Of Legal Representative but on this form it staytes Claimant = cabot, Defendant = Me, Claim Number is blank.


The actual letter claims judgment was made against me on .... (yes that what it says, there is a blank space !).


I have not received any letters about this claim, I suspect there is no claim, I phoned Mortimer Clark who said the claim was performed by previous solicitors Drydens and that they didnt have the claim number..hhhmmm


Ive phoned cabot who know nothing about this so it look very like;ly there is no claim.


Im surprised though that MC are prepared to lie in this manner, it appears to be it could have serious repercussions.


An obvious give away is the form N434 they sent me, this is required to be sent to all the parties and the court, are they seriously saying they sent this to the court without a claim number !!???, as I found out this couldnt be a admin oversight as they dont actually know the claim number.


Any thoughts on what next ?.


I intend to phone Drydens to hear what they have to say.


Phone Northampton Court, not sure if they can help with a claim number but Ill double check there hasnt been claim.


Write complaint to Mortimer Clark, why are they misleading me, is this fraudulent ?, they are after all trying to pressure me to pay what hasnt been adjudicated on yet. Follow up this complaint to SRA

Nope..I checked the CCJ system and it says no......credit report shows nothing (now there could be delay but I doubt it).


Just spoke to Drydens..they closed account and have no involvement since 2017 and didnt take legal action.


So its not good enough to laugh at MC, I want to make things seriously bad for them..many people might of seen letter received and paid up believing judgement had been issued.

I'd begin with an SAR.

There is a procedure where you can complain about such abuses of process and telling porkies like that to the courts service. Admittedly when I have done this it didnt result in anything visible but if you can get the courts service to even comment on it then you have somehting to take to the SRA with a complaint abiut MC telling lies, abusing the court forms and so forth. Best you can hope for is a slap on the wrist but if they get a bundle of complaints like in the CEL/Shwartz case they may well take further action

Thanks..Ive looked at SRA site, it says complain to solicitor in first instance..done that..asked for some comp too.. I spent quite a while phoning the various companies and £6 to check CCJ....


Ill let you know what happens :)


I find it hard to believe that the court form went anywhere near the court..there is no claim number on it..Im pretty sure a court wouldn't accept it even if they did send it.

I remember sending my complaint and a copy of the fake form to Northampton CC but cant remember how I had to address it. I know it got lost in their internal system for a while because it didnt have a claim ref number (duh!) and it all died a death as far as went regarding communicating with me but there again if they are going to do someone for abusing their copyright or forms then it isnt necessary to inform the person complaining.

I suspect as said they will get a ticking off, promise to never do it again and be back at it on monday

Unless you are recording these calls, stay off the telephone. Get a paper trail going where they are telling the porkies, and then you can bury them in the proverbial when the time comes.





No... you can't eat my brain just yet. I need it a little while longer.

moved to the provi forum.

make sure ALL your old addresses are showing on your credit file andy

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Good outcome..full apology from them..plus going to pay compensation :)..not convinced it was just an error as they stated....the alleged judgement date was missing plus they would never send communication to MCOL with no claim number..seems to me a crap attempt to obtain money from people by scaring them.

  • 3 weeks later...

So final outcome is all good.


Compensation received.


Plus I think its given Caboot a boot up the backsides..as Ive just received 2 letters from them, one is about this debt where they state they cant provide the agreement and therefore wont be taking any further action as they acknowledge they'd lose in court AND another letter about another debt with them which I reminded them is stat barred..they said this one is now closed completely.


So 2 debts now gone (one technically still there but nothing they can do) and some compensation :)
