    • You're ignoring the most difficult issue in a trade agreement. It's not the tariffs or the lack of them  which is the tough part to reslove but the regulatory standards of the goods to be imported & exported that needs to be decided.   For example the EU banned the import of chlorine washed chicken since 1997 which of course hurts the US, and who are going to be very keen to include it in any new agreement with the UK and will use it to barter prospective concessions in exchange . As a nation we're going to first have to decided whether that is acceptable or not and that alone will be difficult enough to resolve. And that's just one product.   This has all the makings of a category 5 $h1t storm that will last an eternity. 
    • 28 of the 32 wealthiest countries in the world reside within the EU.  Realistically we will need the US because they are one of the few remaining countries outside of the EU that would be worth doing a deal with, but as discussed on here previously, the exact agreement we strike with the US is open to debate.  Should we still want a trade deal with the EU we would need to align our standards with them, which makes a deal with the US harder.   Also 80% of our economy is services.  Try selling financial services to a person in India... or try sending engineers half way round the world just because some numpty has decided trading with the countries geographically closest to us wont work anymore because of immigrants and sovereignty. 
    • If an Aspirin cost a penny from the US and two pennies from the EU only a fool would buy the EU tablet.
    • you can't add anything to your ws. the beavis case is somewhat immaterial and does not apply to your case...red herring they always role out.   i think you can issue a skeleton argument, or use these as notes at the hearing:   the claimant are incorrect in their assumptions stated in their WS point 45 sub sections 1-4 , in that the defendant as the registered keeper is by default liable for any charge they claim. I was not the driver at the time of the incident, I did not enter into nor read by any terms and conditions of any parking contract, nor could i.   the claimant has provided no annual proof of payment that their contract signed with the land owner to manage car parking in 2009 was still current at the date of the incident in 2015 under contract law.   the claimant has provided no proof their signs and anpr camera equipment have the required planning permission from the council to be erected upon the land in question at the time of the incident in 2015   the claimant has provided no proof, they, any resident retail outlet, any managing agent or the owner of the land can or have successfully varied the original granted parking provisions and restriction to ONE hour only from those permitted and stipulated by the council at the time of the original grant of planning.
    • Sadly no he wont   remember Theres no plan for no deal as we will get a great deal No way would he or any Conservative allow any form of border in the Irish sea No way would he put the NHS up for sale     Well he says his proposals are the great deal The border in the irish sea is a non-border border not a border border, and the required documentation and searches just like other borders dont make it a border and trump doesn't want to buy the NHS, just have US drug corporations bleed the UK taxpayer dry through it       and regarding my non-English English LOL https://www.france24.com/en/20191126-johnson-no-deal-brexit-uk-elections-conservatives

Breaking down the particulars of claim .....if you could respond to each line in bullet response.

 

The defendant was employed by the claimant as a ************  under a contract of employment commencing on July 2008 which is subject to English law .

The defendants employment with the claimant ended on Feb 2014.

 

The defendant received an over payment of salary from the claimant amounting to £396.55.

This over payment was due to the defendant exceeding his annual leave entitlement by 16 hours and the defendant was paid for 25 ? 28 Feb 2014 after having left his employment on 24 Feb 2018.

 

The claimant has called upon the defendant to make payment of the sum owed,

however the defendant has refused or delayed to make payment and accordingly this action has been rendered necessary.

 

the claimant claims int under section 69 of the county courts act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year from 1/4/2014 to 26/9/2019 on £396.55 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of judgement or earlier payment at a daily rate of £0.09 

 

Admit deny or accept and add alternative and then it can be drafted into a CPR compliant response.

  • The defendant admits receiving the payment but denies this is due to over-payment of annual leave . The defendant was on suspended leave for an ongoing dispute during this duration and not annual leave as the claimant is reporting.

 

The claimant has called upon the defendant to make payment of the sum owed,

#######Defence########

 

I Mr xxxxxxx the defendant in this claim accordingly sets out the defence below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

1. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.

 

2. Paragraph 1 is noted. The defendant admits receiving the payment but denies this is due to over-payment of annual leave . The defendant was on suspended leave for an ongoing dispute during this duration and not annual leave as the claimant pleads.

 

3. Paragraph 2 is noted.The defendant admits receiving the payment but denies this is due to over-payment of annual leave . The defendant was on suspended leave for an ongoing dispute during this duration and not annual leave as the claimant is reporting.

 

4. Paragraph 3 is noted. The defendant denies refusing or delaying payment and has previously asked the claimant to clarify how they have calculated this payment. The claimant has not provided a breakdown of the requested information.

 

5. Paragraph 4 is denied.The claimants calculation is based on an incorrect sum.

 

6. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing the amount claimed to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence by way of a  CPR 31.14, request therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:-

 

a) Evidence and quantify the amount claimed.

 

7.. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

8. . By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed

So an update...letter from company HR saying that unable to respond to timescale due to the process in place to retrieve my personal information held in various sources across the organisation ( told you they were incompetent)  Steps are in place to retrieve the information however this will require time to retrieve data and give a timescale of Jan 13th 2020.

They then ask if I can specify particular information or processing activity that my request relates to..

 

I don't see why I should be specific at this point , all data may be relevant for a defence , what do people think?

 

I also have form from the court for allocation so please let me know if the following is correct :

Do I agree to small claims mediation 

Do you agree that small claims track is appropriate  Y 

Hearing venue - My local court 

Expert evidence - N

Witnesses - 1 

Fill in the available dates section that I am or not available

Finally serve a copy to the claimant , court and keep one for myself

Just a further update...

Defence filed and copies sent to court + claimant. 

 

They have agreed to mediation along with myself but I have marked on the defence form that I do not have all the relevant information which of course I don't as my SAR request has not been satisfied yet.

 

Searching through my emails I have located one dated 2016 where I was communicating  with the legal dept , in the mail they said they were going to take legal action unless I paid the outstanding amount.

 

I told them the situation ( on suspended leave not A/L then resigned) and not to take any action until they confirmed my resignation.

I also asked them for a breakdown of how they got these figures , again nothing was forthcoming. 

 

The follow up email states that they do not have a copy of that resignation letter and they would refer to the HR department.

 

Obviously that never materialised. I am sure I have a copy of that letter along with correspondence with my union rep via email while I was on suspended leave.

 

So in all likelihood they will not produce SAR in time and cannot provide my resignation letter.

Just a further update!

So far no documentation for SAR request.

 

I have also trawled back through an old BT email account I am still using , found email conversations between myself , HR and union rep.

 

There is mention of my ongoing case with the company, correspondence with HR about coming back to site for follow up interviews and dealings with my rep up to the point I handed in my resignation which was Feb 2014.

 

As far as I can see these conversations prove that I was on suspended leave pending investigation.

Coupled with the fact the SAR if it ever appears will not have these email trails as I suspect my works email account was deleted a long time back. 

 

In terms of the mediation I have already noted that I do not have all the relevant information so this will render any mediation useless which should proceed it to court. 

 

For now I will keep these cards close to my chest and provide those documents at a later date.

 

I feel confident that a judge will throw this out on the grounds of their lack of evidence in the first instance.

If they again ask for more time to locate documents, you can also highlight to the court that THEY have chosen to issue the claim, and THEY should have gathered all the information they need to establish if they have a valid claim before issuing it .......

Don't leave it too late .....

a) miss a filing deadline & you may not be allowed to introduce the evidence

b) The courts don’t like “ambush tactics”

 

I suggest waiting until they either:

a) provide the SAR response, at which time

i) if that shows you were on suspension (with pay) they should withdraw!, or

ii) if it doesn’t show the paid suspension, highlight that they are missing the email(s) that show it .... again they should back down

b) if they don’t provide the SAR response and a filing deadline is approaching : highlight their lack of SAR response, and provide the evidence : that way you are sure the evidence gets put before the court (if it comes to it!) & you don’t look like you are trying to ambush them!

 

Alternatively, if you just want this “done & dusted” you could consider providing them with the info now, and encouraging them to withdraw “to save everyone time & money”?

Hmm some really good points. If I remember rightly when it comes to the point of providing documented evidence,  I also have to send copies to the claimant?

Indeed...refer to your Notice of Allocation N157 with the courts directions.

Well as much as I would like to mediate the court date will be next , seeing as I have ticked the option that i do not have all the information required. I will have to let the court mediation service know this . At least in front of a judge I tried.
