    • I have been told by the council and welfare rights again because I receive £64. and my partner £168 state pension we aren't entitled to help with the rent and that I would have to pay from the carers £79 per week rent payments and that we couldn't claim universal credit as they would also tell us we aren't entitled. I'm at my wits end as by the time we pay full rent and council tax along with bills and food we aren't going to manage. 
    • I emailed the Information Comissioner's Office for clarification. I explained the above and asked them if the DPA applies to firms.   To my surprise,  they phoned me today. Lloyd bank's policy of refusing to release information about corporate (ie business accounts) is incorrect. The fellow at the ICO told me I am legally entitled to ask my own bank to insist that Lloyds provide them with the info that I want. I cannot remember the name of the protocol but when i phoned my bank and explained that I had spoken to the ICO, my bank's operative spoke to a superior and confirmed that they would now start the ball rolling.dd 
    • I can instruct my dog to sit if it does is another matter.   it this octo themselves or another co ..who?   does it mention the pre action protocol and contain a reply pack? if not safe to ignore    dx  
    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere

I decided to get Sky freesat for my touring caravan. I have all the necessary equipment, dish, sky+ box etc so I ordered a Freesat card from Sky cost £25. I had problems setting up the card so I called sky help, after a long heated conversation it turns out that, with the new "SKY CARD", you cannot receive any SKY channels. I was not happy. Surely this cannot be right. It seems they are charging for a service that they do not supply. Any thoughts.

All sky channels are chargeable, the Freesat system is not part of sky it's backed by ITV and BBC. It's more in line with Freeview that you get via your aerial.

You are in essence paying for a card that will allow you to use their equipment to gain access to the Freesat system. 

You can buy alternative boxes, but they are more than £25

If you want the sky channels you would need a contract.

 

EDIT: Did you not look over the Freesat website first to see the channels you get? That might have saved some time and anguish.
