    • Johnson and Gove must think that Scottish independence is a certainty and Irish reintegration in the EU very likely - and they dont give much of a monkeys about wales Knowledge of Scotland not essential for government’s new ‘union unit’ jobs https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/scotland-uk-union-unit-jobs-gove-b1800250.html   "The job ad at Michael Gove’s department demands candidates “demonstrate good political judgement” and have the “credibility to build a strong network of relationships across Whitehall”. " "However, it states that “understanding of policy issues relevant to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland” is only “desirable”"
    • many thanks DX I will do follow this advice.    one comment on what I've read on here. IDR  / the banks seem to rely on the non exclusive jurisdiction clause. However surely that would mean once its been through court here, it would no longer be active in UAE. Of course that is not how they work ie they would go for both UK and UAE if you ever returned. Is there not a way of highlighting and fighting there use of this clause on that basis?
    • Did you apply for a refund before you took any reclaim action?  If Ryanair refunded you for your flight then you have chosen to "end your contract" with them and they have no further liability for your travel.  This is pivotal because as long as you have a paid up ticket (and booking reference) then they have full liability and responsibility for you.  The minute they refund you, they have discharged their duty and you are on your own.   I am still trying to understand the basis for your claim.  The law says that if you are delayed then you have the option to refund or re-route (but not both which seems to be the case here).  You can go with the original carrier or not despite what Ryanair would have you believe.  You should tell them what you intend to do so they cannot claim later that you did not give them the option.     If I were to apply the best case to your situation it would be that the flight was delayed, you somehow told Ryanair that you were re-routing and off you went with your alternative travel arrangements.  You then put in your claim and waited.  If you then asked for a refund after your travel claim went in then you (and they) could argue that Ryanair has already part-paid your claim but you have a better case.  If you asked for a refund before your claim went in then the emphasis sits more with you to say you made a procedural error and they have a stronger defence.
    • There is a 'pharmacy' based one within range, although I understand the vaccinations are done by the pharmacy team at a nearby (otherwise closed) community centre - not the pharmacy   Have no idea why. probably space.   They are vaccinating with O/AZ as most seem to be apparently due to pfiser shortages
    • Thanks BankFodder. I sent the letter signed for on Friday, but it's not been received/signed for yet. So presumably the 10 days is from when they receive it?   Just to be clear, you're saying I should still start s75 now anyway (and not wait 10 days), correct?

    • 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!

I'm guessing he's on film at the Capitol.

a certain always smiling stopthesteal agitator - a salty man (the salt must flow) youtubers livestream shortly after the event ...put up  captured livestreams of the invasion...some of his followers with bundles of white cable ties and petrol bombs.., which is verified in his spoutings (well shouting ) and in his chatstream ..going there to arrest as many senators they could and set alight offices.

 

its being reported the FBI have all the details.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

A couple of links.

 

The first article says that the Trump campaign was talking about ways to cirumvent election results months ago.

And the second has similar thoughts.

I thought Arnie was excellent, CB. He's a Republican which makes it more interesting.

 

TJ, thank you for posting the video, I meant to do that. It's pretty shocking in what it reveals of the Trump family's attitudes.

 

A friend sent me an article from Vanity Fair where it said Javanka have become pariahs in many quarters because of their association with Trump and the rest of them.

Of course, some might say they are just not wasting their money as the right wing senators they 'supported' no longer have a senate majority to reciprocate in BP's interests ...

in addition to the political flack BP would get in supporting them ...

House Democrats introduced an article of impeachment against President Trump for inciting the mob that attacked the Capitol last week.

 

Republicans blocked a separate move to ask Vice President Mike Pence to strip Mr. Trump of power under the 25th Amendment, meaning the House would have to call a full vote on that measure, probably today.

If Mr. Pence does not intervene “within 24 hours” of the measure’s passage and the president does not resign, House leaders said they would move on Wednesday to consider the impeachment resolution on the floor, just a week after the attack.

Deutsche Bank has been Trump’s most important lender. The Trump Organization, fronted by his two older sons, owes the bank about $340m in outstanding loans. After a series of bankruptcies in the 1990s, it was the only bank willing to give Trump money.

 

Shopify said it had terminated online stores affiliated with the president.

 

P.G.A. of America announced it would strip Mr. Trump’s New Jersey golf club of a major tournament.

 

Trump National Doral near Miami, had already lost many of the major corporate conferences after he made disparaging remarks about Muslims and Mexicans, among others, during his first presidential campaign

It's going well in Trumpland, then?

 

I'm not sure how Deutschebank can terminate its relationship if he owes them money, or is this a preparation for recalling loans?

The rumour mill had it that DB has wanted rid of the trump debt for ages, but as he was president they daren't pull the usual banking stunts on him of selling on the debt or foreclosing early because of some smallprint or suchlike.

 

If you read the detail in the links and chase back the reports, I wouldn't be sympathetic if Trump pardoned himself of the load.

 

Trump did his usual tying the bank up in courts for Trumps own failures accusing DB of 'facilitating' his business bankruptcies and sued.

Its what he does.

The Beeb have done a report on events leading up to the storming of the Capitol and the mentality of Trump's followers. Several people in the article say it should have been foreseen how events would turn out on the day and that it was visible online beforehand.
