    • Thank you for your reply BankFodder and all advice.    Will do the SAR, as mentioned and reading customer service guide.    Thanks again.     
    • Send Firstport and SAR. Do it today. Read our customer services guide and implement the advice there in future. With any company. I expect my site team colleague @dx100uk will be along shortly to provide you with the help you need. Finally, please can you avoid posting in a solid block of text. It's very difficult to read and very unhelpful. Properly spaced and punctuated will encourage others to visit your thread and to give you the support that you need.
    • Hi. This is the first year I had to ask Firstport could I pay by instalments due to company/job closures. They agreed on the phone I could pay instalments. No record was sent or a payment plan put in place. I simply paid on their website by credit card. I paid different amounts and paid every month but I had a blip one month & couldn’t pay so carried on paying the months after. A refund arrived in another month so I ‘used’ that as my instalment. Suddenly 6 months into the year I received a letter from the debt co. PDC saying I owe extra money plus admin fees. They did not know it had been agreed that I was paying instalments so I told them this.  They then agreed it with FIRSTPORT. I then pointed out I had paid up to date. I received no notification from FIRSTPORT about anything being overdue until an email came a day later than the letter!  I’ve been battling with them since November and they just don’t listen. I don’t want their sympathy as everyone has a nightmare year. But I can’t pay them anymore than what I already have to.  Is this all legal ?  many thanks in advance for advice. Marion. 
    • Its all political now Hightail, and the politicians are playing with lives, also Hancock seems to think that its ok to have a flexible interval between jabs, and mix and match vaccines at random depending on what available on the day, with no clue as to adverse interactions.  he should be in jail along with Whitty and ferguson,.
    • I don't think we have any reliable data for a single dose of any vaccine so far.  What we do have from the current protocol are great figures for how many people have received a single shot.  I'm concerned that's more useful for political propoganda than medical efficacy.

    • 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!

Breaking News

Biden agrees an initial trade deal with UK based on Uk-Japan deal

 

Britain can export unlimited home bred Pandas to the US tariff free

In return, the US will export cars, beef, chicken and pork to the UK tariff and regulation free.

 

This is expected to be the basis for an expanded uk-us trade deal in the coming weeks and months.

It probably doesn't come as a surprise to Joe Biden and it doesn't to me, but Trump's scorched earth policy is starting. There was a scary article by his [psychologist] niece at the weekend that said all he has left now is breaking things and two and a half months to do it.

 

His officials won't sign the paperwork to start off the transition process. Sort of understandable as not all the votes have been counted and whoever declares the official result hasn't done that yet.

 

The sackings of anyone seen to be unloyal have started and imagine there will be a load of law suits later today.

In other news there is stuff and all he can do, aside from ignore the pandemic, which is what he's been doing all along anyway.  If he wants, the US government can come and remove him by force, which honestly would be the best piece of TV ever. He can't do anything stupid militarily because Biden / Harris are now in the decision loop. All he can do is spread his BS and hold rallies.

He's doing that knowingly and deliberately. And even when he's gone and slung out of the White House, he will keep doing it.

Just like the 'racist, shapeshifting creep, slavish devotee of Trump we have

 

Thats going to be darkly interesting. Another reason for the ERG to get rid of Johnson.

I do think that it's wrong to compare Johnson and Trump, there are many reasons for this, both personality wise and actions that have been taken, although it is tempting to go down that route. 

 

It's also worth taking a look outside of the English language bubble and see what's going on in places like Switzerland at the moment, in terms of the pandemic their response is far more laissez faire than even the US.  In fact no European Country seems to be a particularly shining example of what we should be doing better at the moment.

 

Not to say that our response hasn't been a shambles but context is always a good thing.

It seems to be the Biden/Harris administration opinion, and its certainly mine.

 

Johnson is a lying, racist, politically and managerially incompetent opportunist

All (with the possible exception of politically incompetent) are simply smaller versions of Trump core 'values.

 

Whats Johnsons latest BS - a Tunnel to Ireland from Scotland

- which is what he allegedly actually 'meant in his analogy bridge to Ireland

 

All complete 'garden bridge on steroids' cobblers and would only feed more millions of taxpayer money to wealthy mates while delivering sod all but debt to the nation

- also like Trump

 

Trump at least negotiated some arguably better international deals for the US

As I said much is true about Johnson, but Johnson is not doing this.

 

1 Denying Covid exists , deliberately running super spreader events .

 

2. Not intervening at all to stop Covid spreading.

 

3.Throwing out racist dog whistles

 

4. Encouraging violence

 

5 Actively discouraging mask use

 

6 Preaching out random dangerous conspiracy theories, 

 

Plenty of other reasons why he isn’t comparable in any way other than superficially.  Not saying Johnson isn’t awful, but it’s just ridiculous to try and compare apples and oranges here.

3.Throwing out racist dog whistles - WHAT - where you been? piccninnies, letterboxs, Obama slur cannabals etc etc ....

 

4. Encouraging violence - encouraging division with racist dog whistles

 

5 Actively discouraging mask use - well thats largely true NOW - he was saying they shouldn't be worn

 

6 Preaching out random dangerous conspiracy theories, - His whole premiership is based on them - Turkey joining EU etc

of course, Trump also opposed gay rights

Johnson 'just' used carefully worded divisive hate speech  ...

 

one example:

 

"In 2001, Johnson wrote in his book Friends, Voters, Countrymen that “if gay marriage was OK – and I was uncertain on the issue – then I saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men, or indeed three men and a dog”

 

taken from the Johnson audit series.

 

 

Mini-Trump - inward and outward

No way he would, should or probably could have won if not for Corbyn.

Can anyone explain to me how almost half of the voting US people voted for Trump

 

Not vague stuff, something with a good bit of reasoning behind it.

 

Now we know that a lot of black voters were disenfranchised by the Trump administration long before this vote - and we may see more detail on that in the Georgia run offs

 

and the issues around fracking (true or false) may have disenfranchised Biden - although he probably gained as many as he lost

 

I even think I broadly understand how Trump got elected as a 'reality TV' president, and how Johnson got elected.

 

But I am largely clueless as to why Americans would vote for him again in such numbers when a number of true republicans stated they would vote for Biden rather than Trump - clearly not many though.

Looking promising

 

U.S. election security agency debunks fraud claims

As unfounded conspiracy theories pile up to challenge the fact that Joe Biden is the projected winner of the 2020 presidential election, the country’s top election security agency is rapidly debunking them.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the federal agency that oversees the security and integrity of election infrastructure, maintains a “rumor control” blog to correct false claims about elections and voting, which has been particularly active in recent days.

The agency’s head, Chris Krebs, a Trump appointee, is personally actively debunking such claims, such as that officials gave Sharpie markers to some voters to invalidate their ballots (those ballots are still counted) or the “hammer and scorecard” conspiracy theory, which holds that a mythical computer system secretly changed votes across the country, inexplicably bypassing audits, the fact that states independently conduct elections, and that most votes were cast on paper ballots.

Same as yesterday, Hammer and Scorecard is still a hoax. Thats it. That’s the tweet. https://t.co/jIwZlt3uDw

Mad as it is, it seems it could be Trumps actually trying to line up what would effectively be a coup. He's totally lost it.

He must be pretty sure that criminal charges are lined up, and that Biden will quickly reverse all the vote hindering policies.

still no evidence despite Republican offering a one million dollar bounty/bribe for anyone who can supply eveidence

- bet theres a few (inc republicans) who could supply evidence of republican fraud (threatening employees with sack if they vote democrat for starters)  now wouldn't that be novel ...

Dont think they would pay out on that lol

 

Doesn't say much about any evidence they (don't) have if they have to bribe people to come up with some does it?
