    • I purchased a bathroom tap for £125 from online company, 'QS SUPPLIES', in May 2020. It was duly fitted and all was fine until December 2020 when the top lever came away from the base of the tap rendering it useless. I immediately contacted QS SUPPLIES using their online complaints procedure and submitted a photo, as required. When after a few days I had heard nothing from them I called their CUSTOMER SERVICES team and was told that they were waiting for a response from the manufacturer, a company called 'SANEUX', I pointed out that my contract was not with the manufacturer and that I expected QS SUPPLIES to deal with my complaint. I was then advised to email them again, which I did...twice.... when they finally responded to my second email they asked me to send another photo of the faulty tap. This time, their response was that their,  TECHNICAL TEAM had looked at the photo and decided that the tap, "APPEARED TO BE FORCED", and therefore they would be, "UNABLE TO OFFER A REFUND ON THIS OCCASION".  So after  7 months of use and at a cost of £125, this company, on the strength of one slightly grainy photo have decided I am entitled to nothing. I have applied to be reimbursed by my credit card company under Section 75 but I am still determined to attempt to get QS SUPPLIES to take responsibility and would really appreciate any advice about the best way to go about this.

    • Hi Everyone,  I am the seller in this case and want to thank the buyer for their support.  The bike was delivered to the local Hermes Parcel Shop really well packaged and sealed on the 3rd Feb with a receipt obtained.  Sadly the parcel was emptied on route to the buyer.   I had listed the bike for collection only however the buyer messaged and asked if we could arrange a courier to which I agreed and they organised that.  When the bike went missing I contacted the local police as the Hermes parcel shop said they would not release CCTV to me.  We got all this from the Police.  since then the buyer has tried his very best which I am grateful with Hermes and parcel2go but is struggling.  Any help is appreciated. 
    • Also, you should start a claim against Hermes. Post your story on the Hermes sub- forum. Give us a full breakdown – including dates and value et cetera. We will help you get your money back

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Pritti Pattel allegedly saw a report that said a ship was arriving with  '2 million doses of Vaccine made in the EU  with the help of Turkish scientists for shipping to the UK'

... and only read the EU shipping label and '2 million' 'Turkish' 'to the UK'

 

and thought the Brexit claim of Turkish flood of immigrants to the UK was actually happening,

and in panic used her immigrant deterrent wave machine and sunk the ship carrying the vaccine to the UK

He does have a right old rant doesn't he.  There are pubs all over the country working round the regulations best they can and he reckons it's impossible.  It's difficult yes.  It's financially risky yes.  And yet they manage if they have the wherewithal to serve food.  Are there wet only Weatherspoons?  If so then they will suffer like all other wet only pubs but as a chain I'd have thought Weatherspoons was more likely than most to survive the storm.

Thats 'healthandmoney is a nutter site @brassnecked

Most of the sites posts are complete cobblers, but that doesn't mean some of the issues raised don't warrant looking at and I will, particularly about the spike protein

 

Current real issues with pregnancy are

* Theres little actual evidence to prove its not harmful even though all expectations from associated/similar are that it isn't, - but the mRNA vaccines are new.

* Pregnancy has some strange effects on immune systems

 

worth a look:

Glad to read that the frozen vaccine is going be thawed to room temperature before injection! 

 

I am some way down the priority list, so there will be millions going through the process before it is my turn. 

 

Hopefully side effects will be limited to minor headaches and nausea, without too many additional issues found.

 

Likelihood is that this will be an ongoing process with vaccines required every year, similar to  flu jabs.

Exactly TJ,  some of the stuff out there is well dodgy and should be treated with extreme caution, however the info sheet is genuine though, and some things  on it do deserve a closer look.

Darn

I was going to drop the two frozen doses in some vodka and blackcurrant and take them both in one shot ..

 

 

Quickly hitting beyond my competence (even to understand and basic confirm others work) with the DNA -> RNA messenger -> protein mechanism of Covid and the vaccine

 

1. The covid infection apparent can pass on to a first trimester foetus - so the spike vaccine almost certainly will

2. The spike protein mechanism is used in a number of 'normal processes

3. There are some similarities between some of the infection mechanisms used by Covid and some other highly infectious deseases like aids (this is worrying - but not vaccine wise as dar as I can see)

 

Rather than waffle on, my summary is that apart from the unknowns around mRNA messaging mechanisms and their interactions, let alone interfering with them,

and other than normal maternal issues experienced during pregnancy,

the covid vaccine would be reasonably expected that it WILL pass to the foetus, including generating a level of immunity and also potentially causing effects caused by the vaccine in adults (ie the effects causing headaches etc in adults).

 

Whether the foetus will tolerate these effects better or worse than an adult/the mother and whether this particular use of a common RNA messaging system will do to a developing foetus is beyond my understanding or estimation, BUT I see nothing definitively untoward to date.

That the messaging system is common would seem to indicate to me (as a none expert) that there appears to be little potential for the process going badly wrong - but not none.

 

I also see little or no reason to expect a difference from a traditional type covid vaccine (the Chinese developed one for example).

 

The REAL issue (apart from its very effective infection mechanisms briefly mentioned above) with covid and immune systems seems to me to be the cytokine storm effect

Oh look - he falls out of favour and suddenly it isnt the ordinary folk reporting that are the liars

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/dominic-cummings-barnard-castle-durham-lockdown-trip-b1766655.html

 

"Durham Police have confirmed they are examining a new 225-page dossier of evidence which suggests Dominic Cummings should face charges over his infamous lockdown trip – or trips – to the northeast.

Senior officers with the force have been instructed to assess the file which was compiled and submitted by lawyers working with the former northwest chief crown prosecutor Nazir Afzal."

 

"Specifically, the documents are understood to allege that Mr Cummings perverted the course of justice with misleading statements about journeys he made to Durham and Barnard Castle in March and April.

They accuse Boris Johnson’s former chief aide and his wife Mary Wakefield of committing multiple breaches of coronavirus regulations by leaving their primary house in London and driving some 270 miles without a reasonable excuse – while both had Covid-19."

More briefings of cronies who brief to their paying customers

Government gave lobbyists access to confidential coronavirus briefings

Former Sun political editor and current chairman of Portland Communications, George Pascoe-Watson, was quietly appointed as an "adviser" to the government in April.

He briefed paying clients on the government's thinking, including on upcoming lockdowns.

 

Mr Pascoe-Watson emailed clients on October 15, telling them he had been “privately advised” that new restrictions on London would last six months until the spring, the Sunday Times reported.

 

Wonder if the London Mayor or Londoners know that?

Blunders Eroded U.S. Confidence in Early Vaccine Front-Runner

The Oxford-AstraZeneca effort held great promise to help arrest the pandemic. But a series of miscues caused it to fall behind in the U.S.

 

 

 

And for the Chinese conspiracy nuts:

"When Chinese researchers released the genetic sequence of the virus that causes Covid-19 on Jan. 9, an Oxford vaccine researcher, Dr. Sarah Gilbert, was able to start work the very next day.

Dr. Gilbert’s team raced to insert genetic material from Covid-19 into its adenovirus platform. By March, the vaccine was being tested in monkeys in Montana."
