    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

People laugh and snark about Boris but ultimately he had empathy, ultimately he flattened the curve of the disease,

 

 

ultimately he bailed the population out financially.  Trump did none of those things.

 

 

 

 

He flattened the curve of the disease at best half of what he should have

 

and Johnsons gov were avoiding 4 million plus hitting the universal credit system and the immediate collapse of swathes of UK businesses,

yes thats better than Trump, but given the situation and the differences in the UK, his gov would have almost certainly collapsed if he hadn't

 Covid press conferences but without the scientists so far. They weren't invited yesterday.

 

Because most are now flatly saying Johnsons policies are not medical advice or medical science rather than simply muttering 'political decision'

interesting that Johnson has said there will be rises for the Judiciary, police and doctors

 

Well, the Judiciary have mostly been at home

Getting to actually see a GP, or even getting past 'every symptom is covid - isolate don't come in' has been and is a ferking disgrace

 

 

My other half and daughter in law, both NHS who have both been working right through the pandemic - longer hours and more responsibilities than normal

apparently still aint getting a penny extra.

Either/or

I was referring to Johnson

but Trump fits equally well there

... Just a matter of degree and what each thinks they can get away with in most areas

 

Like johnson would never get away with 4-9 million extra unemployed and tens of thousands of Tory voting small businesses down the pan

Trump doesn't care - cheap slave labour without using Mexicans

.. Johnson just wishes he could

Surely you mean Johnson makes feeble excuses for the results of terrible personally driven policies and practices and claims it wasn't his fault

... just like Trump and Corbyn have and continue to do

I'm reading excuses - and feeble ones

 

"the prime minister has said he took the "right decisions at the right time", based on the advice of scientists."

 

 "We didn't understand [the virus] in the way that we would have liked in the first few weeks and months."

 

" "I think it's fair to say that there are things that we need to learn about how we handled it in the early stages

 

""Maybe there were things we could have done differently, and of course there will be time to understand what exactly we could have done

 

 

Do read what you link

So show a single clearly defined mistake admitted or apology

 

From refusing PPE and UK PPE being sent to China

Lying about PPE being ordered and coming in from Turkey

Demonstrating Handshakes when there should have been care

18 million people admitted/returned into the UK untested and unchecked

SPADS and ministers P*ing all over lockdown while fining ordinary folk

 

.. theres lots and lots of cretinous decisions for him to pick a clear apology from

.. and not a single one - just like Corbyn and Trump

It's nice to see he takes full responsiblity for what the government has done. But I disagree with the time to understand comment, a second wave could be pretty soon.

 

 

Maybe If he had left out that Maybe ....

changes a weak but arguably an actual apology into nothing but an excuse and avoidance at best in my eyes

 

A simple apology with a clearly defined focus is what is needed

 

 

and given how often he does munge and obscure a required apology, quite clearly says to me that no apology was or is intended. Quite the opposite.

"The US president tweeted a version of the video, which rapidly gained tens of thousands of views on Facebook and YouTube before both companies took it down for containing false public health information.

 

"they’re very respected doctors"

“Many doctors think it is extremely successful, the hydroxychloroquine,”

“You don’t need masks. There is a cure.”

"doctors make medicine using DNA from aliens"

"gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches"

 

Immanuel is a registered doctor in Texas, according to the Texas Medical Board, and runs a clinic in a strip mall next to her church, Firepower Ministries, the Daily Beast reported.

 

"this is who Trump is and always will be: a conspiracy theorist content to gamble with the lives of others."

The (NY)Times has obtained more than two decades of President Trump’s tax returns. The documents paint a picture of a man who takes in hundreds of millions of dollars in some years yet racks up chronic losses.

he is also potentially mired in debt with hundreds of millions of dollars in loans falling due in the coming years. The NYT reported: “Should he win re-election, his lenders could be placed in the unprecedented position of weighing whether to foreclose on a sitting president.”

Yes was flipping between panorama and c4 news

 

trump is going to throw the dirty tricks book at this election

 

wrong thread - butPanorama has actual detailed examples of the utter farces of people testing negative and their contacts being chased a week after any lockdown (which was not needed) would have ended, and being actually told they need to lockdown until the week before the call they were speaking on
