    • Thanks for that. I'll keep you informed
    • agree with all that HB, but biden certainly didn't excel, and difficult as that is with a garbage spouter like the bean stain coloured Trump, it is what he needs to be able to not just handle - but show up as the spoiling garbage it is. Grown ups don't win by allowing spoiled children free reign in their tantrums.   Admittedly the host failed miserably, but Bidens preparedness was clearly sadly lacking.  
    • Good morning I've attached the reply I've received from Marquis in response to my letter of claim.I would like to add a few things that I consider important. I first reported the heater fault on August 3rd. That was the 42 day since purchase, but Marquis had had the van for 12 days so the clock stops as I understand it so it was the 30th day which means that the fault was present when it was sold. They had had one chance to repair and failed to investigate any further. I think the cost that they are refusing to pay are more than reasonable. An offer of a tank of diesel world have settled part of it.   And they are definitely not getting a copy of my bank statement   Although I am sure that I'm not obliged to use the Warranty provided I've been reading my Warranty document and it says it's administered by "A1 guarantee ltd "and they are who I should ring to make a claim.The email address to make a complaint is a "global ins" email. i find it very confusing as in the front of the schedule it says "This guarantee is a non-insured product, any obligation to repair your motorhome will be our sole responsibility. Should we cease to trade, then this product will no longer be valid"

    • I’m in desperate need of help
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

About two weeks ago I went for my bi-annual eye test and was told that my driving and reading glasses need updating. Last Wednesday i picked them up and no real issue with my driving glasses however the reading reading glasses are another issue. With my old glasses I have no issue reading off my laptop, magazine or Kindle. The latter two are about 14" from my eyes when holding them on my lap. However with the new specs unless I am holding the magazine or Kindle about 1' from my eyes, the print is not clear and sharp. If I read at my normal distance I am now finding that after a while I get a migraine and I am not one to suffer from migraines.


Went back to the optician yesterday firstly to get one the lens for my driving glasses put back in as it had fallen out and also to raise the issue of my reading glasses. I was told by the optician that after a couple of months my eyes will adjust to the new glasses and that I should persevere with them? I always thought that glasses were to supposed correct your eyesight and not for your eyes to correct themselves to adapt to the new glasses?


Never had this issue previously so a bit unsure however I do not enjoy migraines. Should I find another optician and pay again?

This is what I am thinking. I might as well have walked into Boots and bought two magnifying glasses and asked them to frame them in the hope that eventually my eyes will adjust to them.

Theree are one or two opticians out there who will hold back your prescription with a view to selling you some expensive new glasses. These same ones also fail to let you know if there has been a significant change in your prescription. For Reading are you sure you cannot just use those sold over the counter. I have always collected my prescription and gone elsewhere.

Unfortunately I found that opticians tempt to change your prescription slightly so you get new lenses if not new spectacles.

Whenever I go to have a test now I say that I will buy new spectacles no matter what because the ones I have are scratched and I don't like them anymore.

Prescription hasn't changed in 10 years.

I have arranged an appointment for tomorrow and will insist on copies of the prescription and also the previous subscription. I am wondering why I can clearly read the print on my laptop with glasses that were issued to me back in 2014?

Remember you have paid for a Service.


I would start questioning the Opticians as were the Glasses made in store or sent away to a central Lab (has the Lab messed up?)


Why have you had to have the lens put back into one set of glasses and the other pair difficult to read with. I would not accept this and would be challenging the Opticians to rectify these issue and you want clarification that the lenses in the glasses you are having reading problems from are the correct lenses fitted.


You are fully entitled to a copy of your prescription and if this Opticians.


Do some checks on the actual Opticians as the may actually just be a Franchise of a larger chain but using there name so look them up on companies house.
