    • In June Boris Johnson told the country it was our patriotic duty to go to the pub (and spread the coronavirus): that having been an effective message, the government is now mandating the early closure of pubs and restaurants in what is being called a “curfew”, as though it were the public and not the government who were a bunch of unruly children. - Steven Poole     and Some real-world Facts from around the world - to counter cjcregg alt-facts/no-facts soundbites from the whitewashing house   Covid mutations including more infectious strains and a strain which appears far more infectious in a major US metropolitan area - but it is still likely the case that only one vaccine will be needed - so far.   https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/08/coronavirus-five-out-of-six-covid-19-subtypes-are-getting-more-infectious-study.html   https://www.marketwatch.com/story/new-research-indicates-growing-prevalence-of-possibly-more-infectious-coronavirus-strain-in-houston-area-2020-09-24   https://www.news-medical.net/news/20200924/Molecular-analysis-of-COVID-19s-second-wave-shows-mutant-viruses-linked-to-rapid-spread.aspx   https://bgr.com/2020/09/03/coronavirus-immunity-study-iceland-antibodies-duration/   https://www.health24.com/Medical/Infectious-diseases/Coronavirus/covid-19-study-suggests-one-vaccine-would-be-enough-for-all-coronavirus-strains-20200903
    • Morning  I am sorry for this unacceptable delay on my behalf, however I never thought a simple complaint letter would cause me so much stress along with anger towards this company 🙄 however I only have this weekend to get things rolling. I should be back at hospital Monday (as long as they don't cancel on me again) and won't be upto much for a while from then on 🤔 So please bare with me, I need to condense my letter as it's totally long winded and off in points, I'm taking the advice given for prin 6 and 7, but was also considering prin 9,  Trust is also a major part for me here:  yes I did trust they had my interests and I totally relied on their advice and judgement, which I now know was all given with their own interest in mind not mine and for their own benefit and gains, no to assist me in any way.

    • Get rid of the car? I'm not entirely sure what you mean.    The long and short of it is, he has exponentially screwed up, not only illegally, but by lying on more than one occasion, he doesn't have a defence as if a judge looked at the evidence I'd 99. 99% win. I did everything I was supposed to, he has thus far avoided any responsibility for his actions. If it means going to court in brum of he wants to put in a defence, then so be it.    If I do as you say, and I'm presuming here that you mean send the car back to him,  if he accepts it back he then has the car, my money for the car and I wouldn't just be filing for delivery then, would I?  I'd be filing for the cost of the car plus delivery.  Or do you mean sell the car to someone else?    I think I'll take advice elsewhere as so far the advice I have had elsewhere agrees with the outcome I want, for him to collect the vehicle and refund me the money, as he is by law required to do.

    • 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 .

Hi all,


Could I please ask you to cast your eyes over the letter I received from SCS and let me know your opinions as to whether or not it's legitimate or just a debt collector using headed paper.


Many thanks,

the plus side of their demand is that it points to the signage at the site being prohibitive in nature and thus making their demand an unlawful penalty.

If it was a designated space and you arent allowed to be there how cna they say you agreed to pay them for being there? the only way of creating a contractual relationship is to breach the contract so that makes it unfair to start off with.


That wont stop a bunch of thick greedy ex clampers chasing you for the money though. they have spent a few quid on this by now and will do anything regardless of how unreasonable their behavious is to get a return on their outlay so you need to respond to this letter.

i would suggest (without seeing the signs or paperwork that could make it even less likely they have a valid claim) that you send the following:


Dear Sirs,

by your own admission your client is seeking to pursue an unlawful penalty charge as there was no offer of a contract so no cause for action againt me in this matter. i suggest that you inform your client they would be better off instructing Gladstones solicitors if they wish to pursue this and lose a civil claim as they have a proven track record of lies and incompetence and you are not in their league when it comes to losing clients money for such misadventures as this.

now give us all of the details as MET usually cant find their backsides with both hands so sight of the NTK's please plus piccies of the entrance to the land a gerneral appraisal of the car park as it sounds as though it is shared and pictures of the signage where you aprked and any signage that is different elsewhere.

now on google the sign you see from the road says 4 hours maximum stay and no mention of designated spaces or charges for overstaying.

therefore no breach of contract that could mena you owe them money. If the sign at the gate relies on the other signs inside the car park then it isnt an offer of a contract anyway but an invitation to treat so yiou are then entitled to ignore the other signs if you dont like them.

No need to tell them this, the solicitors dont care about the law, just getting their client to pay them and if they sue you and lose the solicitors still get paid but not by you, that is all.


Not Virgin's land anyways, it is publicly owned so would be interesting to know what hammersmith and Fulham Council think about it all if it does go further as you can counterclaim against MET and name them as co defendants in that
