    • Hi, hope that you can help with the PCN detailed below, unfortunately I have entered into correspondence (appeal) and identified the driver, hope that this doesn't have too much of an impact! On 26/05/2024 the driver entered the ANPR controlled car park to park but was unable to find suitable parking due to the car park being very busy. This took 11 minutes according to Wise ANPR details, this was due to other vehicles looking for parking and impeding the driver's progress. This has been appealed to both Wise Parking and IAS and the appeal has been rejected by both; unfortunately, the driver has been identified on the appeal. Note: the appeal response from Wise was not received until 04/07/2024, wise state (after me chasing) that it was sent by email on 17/05/2024 but this was not received and not in junk mail. I have completed the form below and attached correspondence (post and email) as a single pdf Please let me know if you need anything else.   1 Date of the infringement 26/05/2024   2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 29/05/2024   3 Date received Around 04/06/2024   4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?]  Y   5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Y   6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] Y Unable to find /access details of my appeal to Wise, however I will have revealed the identity of the driver My appeal to IAS: You completed the appeal on 06/07/2024 23:38:42. The car was not parked on this land. The reason for this was that there were no available parking spaces. I drove the car around the car park a few times searching for a space but was unable to obtain a space due to it being busy. I then left the car park without parking, I therefor did not make use of their facility or have the opportunity to check their terms and conditions as I did not leave the car. The appellant made their response on 08/07/2024 09:52:52. As I did not park due to lack of opportunity a "parking" charge is not appropriate. As can be seen from the ticket, I was only onsite for a few minutes which backs up my assertion that I did not park. No evidence has been provided that I did park, only that I entered and left 11 minutes later.   Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up Y   7 Who is the parking company? Wise Parking   8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Chapel Point, Chapel St Leonards   For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. IAS   If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here I have received a response from both Wise and IAS rejecting my appeal     Wise Parking PCN - 26-05-2024.pdf
    • You mean the mediation Service. It's not from the court  Offering a date and time?  Dx   
    • Equivo are applying for an interim charging order although I know why they want to do this, I find it to be very unjust and needless in my point of view! and don't know why there is a continuing need to harrass me with a Charging Order. No payments have been missed since the order was made and a total of £360 paid to date The debt amount has not been reduced as they keep adding interest, the original debt was £1500 it now stands at £1700 The judgement didn't order a payment plan but we have agreed to one and for three years they have accepted my payment...not sure if that relevant? Also I live with my partner and they have sent her the same as she has a 50% claim to the property how can I stop this? many thanks Webbs   Interim Charging Order Creation Finance Old Flybe Card.pdf
    • Good. Hopefully you've done the reading and you know how it all works from now.  However, please will you not leave things to the last moment in future.  We have our work cut out as it is and to try and help you catch up with deadlines put extra strain on us which as an unpaid volunteer group, I don't think we should need to do

    • 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.

The sub-postmasters scandal


Recommended Posts

ITV News have got hold of an email and recording of a phone call between Vennells and Ron Warmington of Second Sight. People in the know are saying it's smoking gun everyone's been looking for.

I love that this has come out the day before she appears at the inquiry. This should be interesting under oath.

WWW.ITV.COM

ITV News has acquired an email and recording of a phone call that suggests the former Post Office boss was aware of issues with the Horizon system...

Vennells evidence starts this morning at 09.45.

Nick Wallis has made an interesting observation in his blog yesterday or today that yesterday's witness, Alwen Lyons, implied that forensic accountants Second Sight weren't doing a good job on their investigation of SPMs' complaints about Horizon.

Nick's theory is that not being good at a job seems to be telling the Post Office things it doesn't want to hear.

And that having been told things they didn't want to hear about the Horizon system, that training was terrible and their investigators and prosecuters weren't good enough, they decided the solution was to sack Second Sight and buy more expensive advice in the hopes of getting an answer they liked.

Jason Beer has gone into rottweiler mode, I haven't seen him like this with other witnesses. Vennells seems to have put on an act but it may be slipping. She keeps trying to wriggle and say she wasn't told things and he keeps producing emails or minutes that show she knew. 

She has Mishcon de Reya there but when Sir Wyn read her the blurb about not self-incriminating she said she would answer all the questions. 

Loads of SPMs there, Jo Hamilton is in the front row. I hope they're getting some kind of payback.

I didn't think as much came out in the media of today's hearing but it's possible she admitted to a cover-up. Journos need to go through their notes. I should think a few people were upset about how the mediation scheme seems to have been set up to pay low or no compensation.

Tomorrow they've abandoning Vennells to the mercy of the SPMs' lawyers for the whole day. That could be worth watching.

something to remember from prior links ..

 

"Two years earlier (2013), the inquiry has heard, in the evidence of the Post Office’s then senior in-house lawyer, Chris Aujard, it was Vennells who insisted that prosecutions of subpostmasters continue, despite contrary evidence raised in Second Sight’s interim report.

Susan Crichton, Aujard’s predecessor as general counsel, had resigned after being excluded from a meeting about that report after, she said refusing to “manage or manipulate the [information] in the way that Alice Perkins [former chair of the board] was expecting me to.” In meeting notes about Crichton’s departure, Vennells wrote that the lawyer had “put her integrity as a lawyer above the interests of the business

Another farce kicking everything into the long grass - as usual for these corporate and political alleged criminals.

Post Office scandal: Police to deploy 80 detectives for criminal inquiry.

Investigation will dig into potential perjury offences and perverting the course of justice by senior leaders and Fujitsu

 

Police have asked government for a special grant of at least £6.75m to fund the operation.

Police will not seek charging decisions, that is send files of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, until after the public inquiry into the Post Office scandal concludes, which is expected in autumn 2025.

 

It is expected the CPS will not reach charging decisions until 2026, and the wait for any criminal trials could be even longer.

37.5 million quid ...

 

"Inquiry Chair Sir Wyn said it was possible her refusal was a criminal offence but that seeking a conviction in her absence and then extradition from Australia would delay the inquiry too long."

Errr WHY?

The inquiry doesn't have to stop while she is prosecuted now does it?

 

Sounds like avoidance via feeble excuses from Wyn there eh?

From the Law Gazette.

Paula Vennells had faith in her lawyers - and threw them under the bus.

WWW.LAWGAZETTE.CO.UK

If we are to believe the former chief executive, she was simply too trusting of her general counsel.

yes, albeit a lessor one than vennels was gifted with for:

* Some alleged unknown services to charity and church

* obnoxious things that are coming to light in the service of the PO?/herself?/someone who enabled her seemingly entirely unwarranted and unjustified career?

 

Seems to me his service to justice and the people and nation is vastly superior in all ways to anything venal vennels did

Why have there not been arrests yet? Waiting for the end of an inquiry which seems designed to drag on forever is a feeble excuse

"the Post Office “was constantly sabotaging our efforts” to seek the truth and used claims of legal professional privilege – a type of confidentiality which covers legal documents – “to justify withholding documents from us”.

"Aujard had said the state-owned body “would not hesitate to take legal action against me” under a “draconian” non-disclosure agreement (NDA)"

"Henderson became concerned after reviewing the case file of Jo Hamilton, ..

Henderson said the Post Office’s decision to charge Hamilton did not seem to be supported by its own internal security report, and there was evidence that “potentially exculpatory material” had not been disclosed to her at trial or subsequently. “I regarded this as either professional misconduct or, potentially, criminal conduct,” he said."

Ian Henderson, looking into possible miscarriages of justice, said he came to believe he was dealing with ‘a cover-up’
