    • I doubt they really do believe it.  They believe the party membership will believe it - and they already know they'll believe just about anything.
    • Anglian Water (although others may be culpable).   Some time ago users of this forum complained about the level or proportionality of standing charges on fuel bills.  The feeling was that 25% standing charge would be acceptable against the unit cost.  Anglian Water in Essex, responsible for sewage removal,  charge around 80% of a bill for this, my last account was £10 unit cost against a £44 standing charge.  Anglian claim that this is due to infrastructure issues and that my area is sparsley occupied.    Southend on Sea has 160,000 residents, hardly sparse, and infrastructure issues are their problem, not mine.  Anglian is also responsible, according to Environment Agency, of contaminating sea water in my locale.   If there is no legislation regarding the proportion of standing charge to unit cost, there certainly should be !  Any advice ?   (There is a wider issue of charging through third parties that could be taken up seperately.)
    • So - I continue to not pay any more?  Until they respond with the info I have asked for?
    • Hello and welcome to CAG. I'll move your thread to the Residential and lettings forum and leave you a link to follow from the Welcome forum.   I'm sorry to hear about your neighbour problems, people should be along to advise later.   Best, HB
    • Your only hope is asking for discretion on the grounds of well you didn't realise you had to pay online you expected a toll booth, you didn't see any sign of any penalty charge amount and basically it's your first time using this toll bridge and you were unaware of the process,.   In the past, for 1st time offence, Merseyflow have responded rejecting the appael but on this one occasion have reduced the penalty to the toll fee.   You might be lucky.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Facebook post now facing disciplinary.

Recommended Posts

I shared two Facebook posts on my timeline and these caused offence to one of my Facebook friends at work. 

He reported me and now I face a disciplinary.

 

When I was informed of this I immediately removed the posts and offered to apologise to aggrieved person which he was willing to accept

management refused this although in past disputes between work colleagues management have actively sort this form of action. 

 

I've never had a good relationship with my manager over the five and a half years I've worked there, even though my work record is excellent  and feel some sort of victimisation. 

 

We have no union so am in this alone and wondering on a course of defence. 

Can anyone advise me please?

get hold of your social media policy if you have one and see what it says

 

at the end of the day if you have posted offensive stuff it's no different to saying it - prep on that basis.  Sexist/ racist stuff may be viewed as gross misconduct.

would it be construed as bringing the company into disrepute?

Can you tell us what happened, tom a? It would help other caggers who find themselves in the same position, plus the advisers like to know the outcome for people they've helped.

I got a final written warning. Thought I would lose my job. The post were reported as racist but after investigation this was not the case and was never intended to be. Still found to offend one of my work colleagues hence the warning. 

I've took it on the chin and learnt from it.
