    • you do NOT need to pay it and anyway that would not remove the ccj, its there on your file paid or not for 6yrs, a paid ccj even with a cert of satisfaction is as bad as a non paid one.   the ONLY way to remove it is to set it aside.   sadly you the very worst thing you could have done with ANY debt on your credit file or not that you last used or paid or wrote about to the debt owner in the last 7 yrs....you ran away,,,moved without informing the debt owner of your correct and current address.   erudio and drydens are masters at doing backdoor ccj's. they are ofcourse totally wrong that the defaulted date is the sb date...well not when your last written/signed ack of the debt was more than 6yrs before the claimform date.   now how do you remove it....go read that thread ...carefullly then comeback here and lets see if you understand how.   dx  
    • Thanks, having to move house and discovered this. It's causing a nightmare in trying to rent somewhere and mortgage was also refused by the bank.    Shortly after requesting info I got a warrant in the post from bailifs. Managed to halt that and pause any action till I get key dates to try and get this removed.   Not wanting to avoid paying it, just need the CCJ gone.   Appreciate your help. Will read fully although I am not great with law.
    • Write the letter. It's important that you put this in writing so that you have a paper trail. Send the letter by recorded first class delivery. Explain that because of the defect in the bundle which has manifested itself within 30 days – always refer to the bundle – you are now rejecting it under the consumer rights act 2015 and that you require a refund and you want to know what their arrangements will be for providing you with this. You can also send this by email – but do it straight away. This reserves your rights and after that you have some flexibility as to how you want to act. I understand that they are uncooperative. No surprises. Don't imagine either that they will be fazed by your letter – but the important thing is that you are able to show that you are asserting your rights. After that, they are acting unlawfully We will help you make a claim against them and I suppose that will involve threatening to sue them and maybe even going on to sue them. You will find interesting and you will acquire some transferable skills which will enable you to sue anybody else who gets in your way with a degree of confidence. However, it might be a good idea to mitigate your loss and I would suggest that you accept the money that they have put on the table but make sure that they understand that you are accepting it and you are happy with it and you consider that they still owe you the outstanding £70. If you are asked to sign anything then you should decline and then we will help you claim for the whole lot. However if they don't ask you to sign for anything, then make sure that they have a letter from you at the same time saying thanks very much do for the £250. You are accepting it but this should not be taken as an indication that you are now relinquishing your claim to the rest of the money. Tell us what you want to do – with you want to take the 250 or whether you want to simply reject the lot and claim for the lot. If you want to take the 250 – which I suggest that you do – and if they will give you the money despite the fact that you are still reserve your rights in respect of the balance, then come back here when you have that money and we will help you with the rest. If they refuse to give you the money unless you agree that it is in full settlement, then that becomes very interesting because it becomes very clear evidence that they are beating their obligations under the consumer rights act – and this gives you even greater leverage over them when you decide to confront them. The advantage of mitigating your loss is that there is less to sue for and that means that your court fees will be less – although you will get these back anyway when you win. Also, because they are only fighting to hang onto £70, they are more likely to put their hands up once they know you're serious. There is absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain by taking the money that is available on the table subject to the reservation which I've indicated above.
    • Yes she might well have sunk the VCS ship, or put it on the rocks as it rehashes old stuff introduces nothing new.
    • Hello BF   As you caught, yes both items (console with digital game download) bought from GAME as an advertised bundle (still got screengrabs of the bundle/ad).   No letter sent but I did actually quote that specific 2015 act when trying to return it in-store. I was scrolling away online looking at consumer advice on my mobile as the manager was testing the console. It fell on the deaf ears of the store manager who wasn't entertaining the return/my query at all. They just kept saying there is nothing technically wrong with the console. I'd question whether the manager even knows about the CRA2015 considering their response/the lack of engagement.   I've not done anything formally but I'll write a letter. The store said I can pick up with customer services. I've went more along the lines of escalating from store to area manager. Their website is quite specific that in-store returns can only be made in-store. I'm awaiting a call from area manager next week but after todays update that they will withhold £70 I'm expecting a similar response.   It cost £250 in total. I traded in an old playstation as part of the deal. £100 trade-in value and £150 by debit card. For clarity I'm not expecting £250 back via debit. But £100 store credit and the £150 debit refunded was my sole expectation.   Thanks very much btw!

So, anyone know why M&S are actually leaving France?

WWW.BBC.CO.UK

Brexit has made it "near impossible" for it to supply fresh and chilled products to France, the retailer says.

 

I understand the customs/Brexit issues, and that many UK products can't be shipped due to Brexit hostile environment to EU lorry drivers causing shortages (covid excuse simply doesn't wash),

BUT as theres no such shortages (drivers or product) and no issues (as far as I am aware) in getting stuff from anywhere in the largest single market in the world into France..

It seems a bit pointless to me and businesses trading with the rest of the world, apart from the three countries that use imperial measures, will still need to use metric.

 

I suppose some will see it as a 'benefit' from Brexit.

From October 2016. MPs warned of possible energy supply problems. Another clip I read says the government also ignored Commission papers setting out what could go wrong.

I hope that I am wrong, but I have a feeling that we are going to face a winter of discontent. All of the serious problems facing many countries are going to reach a crisis point.

 

It will be worse for the UK because of Brexit, as the Government has so far been unwilling to create visa schemes for specific sectors, so foreign workers can fill gaps in the labour market.

 

The energy supply chain is incredible weak in many countries and if we have a very cold winter I can see many businesses being forced to close as the Government prioritises domestic heating supply.

 

How many energy companies are Government going to bail out ?  Only the biggest can survive the massive increase in wholesale prices.

From Bloomberg yesterday.

 

'Joe Biden has too many domestic priorities to find time to negotiate a trade deal with the U.K., Prime Minister Boris Johnson said ahead of a meeting with the American president in Washington on Tuesday. '

 

Johnson also says he would rather have a good deal than a quick deal.

I suspect that the US have told UK, that there will be no trade deal on the table for years and that the US wants to see the  UK fully implementing the Brexit agreement with the EU including the Northern Ireland protocol.

 

US has always strongly supported Ireland and they won't sign trade deals with UK, while the UK is acting in a way that looks like they cannot be trusted.

 

Get ready for a UK general election in 2022, as Boris may decide to take the risk to go early, rather than wait until 2023 or 2024, as by then the situation could be a lot worse. Could you imagine getting to 2024 with no trade deals that are in UK interests, no Brexit dividends and tax increases.

Is there a bit of your post missing, UB or have I missed something subtle?

 

It will be interesting to see what happens about the timing of the next election. You're predicting a bit earlier than a lot of the commentators who are talking about 2023 at the moment.

Nothing missing and not being subtle.

 

Government appear to have briefed media that they will table legislation to hand back power to the PM to call General elections at a time of their choosing. This was reported by several TV channel political correspondents.

 

Boris likes to play politics as a game and he will see that as time moves on, he will become less and less popular, as will the Government. Recent polling is showing decline in approval ratings.

 

Hence why Summer 2022 may be seen as a good time to hold an election. Before the National Insurance and other tax increases start to hurt peoples standards of living. Leave holding an election until 2023 or 2024 is very risky as by then Government could be very unpopular. 

 

UK will need to at some point make a large number of work visas available to migrants, in particular to pick agricultural crops.  Farmers have lost a lot of money in 2021, as their crops have not been picked and supplied to shops.  lack of migrant labour to pick crops and lack of drivers to pick up/deliver to wholesalers/shops.  Government cannot allow a repeat in 2022, so will issue visas to migrant workers and this will be unpopular to some who voted Brexit.

Boris's face when being interviewed today..  When project fear becomes project reality !

 

UK as an independent country will have to invest hundreds of billions to upgrade all of the important infrastructure  that is required. This will take a very long time.  The new nuclear power station being built in Somerset will not be generating any power until 2026 at the earliest and that is very optimistic as only about a third of the site has been built.

 

Some of the protections the UK had as part of being in the EU are no longer there.  EU  countries will look after their own interests in regard to energy supplies, with no obligations to the UK, as they are no longer part of the EU club.

This Twitter thread is enlightening on gas prices. HMG has removed some of the evidence that was published, including its own papers.

 

It let Centrica get rid of a lot of gas storage to increase profits and the UK's stocks are far lower than France, Germany and Italy. So burbling on about wholesale prices is to ignore a significant part of the problem.
