    • Lots of uncertainties about whether to contact Horizon for and sar or Tesco.  My suggestion to contact Tesco was after finding out if  the original PCN was non compliant.  Most of the ones I have checked in the past have been for several different reasons. That means that the liability for the alleged debt cannot be transferred to the keeper.   Once it is confirmed that the PCN is non compliant the OP can write to Tesco as the keeper pointing out that as the keeper he has no responsibility for the debt and has been denied the facility of appealing to POPLA because of the NTK not being received  at all. POPLA may well have cancelled on appeal because of no keeper liability.  In addition  the stoppage in the car park was for less than the consideration period. The keeper could then add if it was true, that the driver was an infrequent patron of this particular car park and the keeper will ensure that a similar occurrence does not happen in the future.   One could point out that if the camera operator had thought that they had not observed any children in the car, from the Court's point of view  they would have expected the operator to have attempted to mitigate the situation by explaining to the driver that they should either move the car to avoid a ticket or explain where the children were [ref. Jopson v Homeguard]. Then perhaps it could have  been explained that the wife and children were dropped off at the entrance or the children and their mother were already in the store and the driver was there to collect them. [They should also have issued a windscreen ticket since they were in the vicinity but of course that would have meant that they would have had to wait several weeks longer to be paid. It is a practice frowned upon but overused by greedy  car parking companies].   The above paragraph obviates the need to  admit parking wrongly and suggesting possible  reasons for parking there without admitting that either scenario actually happened.      
    • Hey everyone I rented some rackspace from a company on a month to month contract but the customer support has been quite poor of late, my services went offline a few times and they advised my servers had gone over the allowed power limit on my account and required an upgrade which I agreed to but I had enough of the reply times taking hours, never any answer on the phones when I needed support I requested to cancel my services on the renewal date, they advise in their terms of service that if there is a open invoice this must be paid before they will allow collection of your hardware and if not paid within a set time the hardware becomes theirs and can be sold off, reused by them ect I have noticed in their terms of service that it does not state at any point the amount of time before the due date the new invoice will be created which I feel should be a important part of any contract on a monthly billing they will pre advise you of the amount of time before the payment is due when they will invoice you   I was also meant to receive IPv6 addresses as part of my package but never had these although I had requested these many times they advised they were not available but are mentioned as part of my overall package on my invoices     They are asking for nearly £700 payment before they will even discuss allowing anyone to collect my hardware (worth about £5000 in total) and if I do not pay this within a set time they will take ownership of all my servers and use or sell them   Thanks   Update I had advised them I will be hiring a man and van service to collect my hardware, they have suddenly advised that I cannot do this and must use a certain type of company who specialist in server transport. I do not feel this is fair as it is my hardware, fully owned and paid for my me but start trying to set out new rules that have never been made aware of until today after making my request to cancel.

    • Hi,    Any advice much appreciated...   I sold an item on Ebay.  It was an above ground swimming pool which the buyer paid £900 plus £60 delivery.   Ebay took quite a chunk in fees which left me more out of pocket than I anticipated.  I therefore looked for the cheapest courier.  I booked Tuffnells via Interparcel.  I opted not to take insurance as it cost £35 and I had a quick google and found I could buy £900 worth of Parcel insurance for £10.  However when I went to do it, they didn't cover Tuffnells, so upshot was parcel was uninsured.   It was collected from my property all ok, boxed up and very heavy as driver needed trolley to get it to the lorry.  However when delivered to the customer, she reported the packaging being ripped and the courier being able to lift the parcel.  The customer contacted me a couple of hours after delivery to report that the main component of the box - the swimming pool liner - is missing.   I have contacted Interparcel who have contacted Tuffnells.  I am unable to speak to Tuffnells directly as they are hiding behind the fact I booked through Interparcel.    Obviously, if the liner is not found and the item is 'lost' - I will have to refund my buyer and will therefore be £960 worse off.   I have seen there have been a few people taking cases like this to the small claims court.  Would this case be eligible and what would I need to prove?  I have the tracking details and the buyer took photos of the contents of the box minus the liner.  I have pictures of the box prior to collection.    I look forward to any advice.

Macron is asking the UK to fulfill its legal commitments on fishing and the NIP, for instance. It looks as if the new regime in Germany agree with him, too.

 

In terms of standing up to the hard right, I don't think Macron's actions are much different to Johnson's and I agree, Zemmour would be a problem if he became a candidate and got into power.

 

The EU is only likely to become involved if a country starts breaching human rights or the rule of law, surely?

While we wait ...

 

 

A view into the Tory perspective from the Independent View from Westminster newsletter

 

Tory party falls out with the PM

It’s the day cabinet ministers dread: the publication of the monthly Conservative Home poll of party members.

 

Liz Truss and David Frost top the net satisfaction league table again, but there have been some dramatic swings to “dissatisfied” since last month. Mark Spencer, the chief whip, has suffered the worst, acting as a scapegoat for the disastrous attempt to bail out Owen Paterson, with a 29 per cent swing to minus 21.

 

Boris Johnson himself is the next big casualty, an 18 per cent swing to minus 17; followed by Priti Patel, a 13 per cent swing to a “net zero” satisfaction rating, thanks no doubt to Channel crossings; and Jacob Rees-Mogg, also implicated in the Paterson error, who suffered a 10 per cent swing to a reduced rating of plus 34.

 

Rishi Sunak, on the other hand, seems to be recovering slightly from making the Conservatives the party of high taxes, with a bounce back from a plus 45 rating to plus 53. 

 

The Con Home poll is not a representative sample, but it is restricted to party members and has a good track record of predicting leadership election votes. The August poll was also a good predictor of who was going to be sacked in the September cabinet reshuffle, but now the prime minister himself is second from bottom he would have to sack himself.

 

 

 

So the CONhome Tories think Truss and Frost,  lead negotiators of the UK's EU task farce and the Australia gets the benefits trade deal are the Trouts scallops

Easily pleased is all I can say. (Not that theres much to chose from)

From Alex Taylor quoting from le Canard Enchaine in France today.

 

So Macron (allegedly 😀) calls Johnson a clown and a "gougnafier" ("knucklehead"🤡) Most interesting revelation in today's Canard Enchaîné is however ... "In private, he tells me he's sorry he acts like he does, conceding he has first and foremost to accommodate public opinion"

The way Johnson behaves is not really appropriate for anyone holding any senior position. He acted in the same way when he was London Mayor.  Plays political games all of the time and he is not really bothered with whether policies actually help the people he says he wants to serve.

Political games are silly but have had the effect of undermining trust in Europe when our ministers say one thing in private and the polar opposite in public, I'm reading. They think that Johnson doesn't abide by binding agreements he signed months previously and can't be trusted.

 

France is the most vocal but they aren't out of step with the view in Europe. Their ministers sound fed up with having meetings when people like Patel and others are polite at the time and then insult them in the media afterwards. They rightly point out that they aren't subservient to the UK or a vassal.

 

As worrying, I think, is the normalisation of lying and lying to Parliament without correcting it.

was just looking at that HB.

Wonder who will foot the bill? Taxpayers or the Tory party?

 

 

 

On a side note

Johnson feeds populist pals £millions and £millions for duff PPE,

including £millions to individual populist pal middlemen to order duff stuff made in China via alibaba or suchlike

 

 

Scotland shows how a real government does it:

 

“We’ve also established a domestic supply chain for PPE, with 88% of supplies coming from Scottish companies, which not only provides Scotland with more resilience but also an added economic benefit.”

 

"Richard Leonard convener of the committee, said he and other MSPs had “looked at awe at the growth from zero to 88% in the percentage of domestic supply”.

 

"Gordon Beattie, director of national procurement at NSS, said transparent face masks made in Scotland are being considered for use in England and had won export orders from Europe."

Holyrood’s Public Audit Committee heard items are also now being exported to Europe.

I see the Tories held their safe seat on Old Bexley and Sidcup ... but with a very encouraging 10% swing to Labour and a massive 75% fall in their majority after losing one of the remaining 'real' Tories to the blight of cancer.

 

The upcoming North Shropshire by-election after the resignation of corrupt self serving (allegedly) Paterson is the definition of a Tory safe seat. Peterson might even have snuck a re-win in if Johnson hadn't thought another tory candidate removes the risk.

Be interesting to see the result though.

and regarding Paterson, Is it true his 'relationship' aka paid lobbying from Randox has 'ended'? (Fired as now useless?)

 

.. as Randox has now been pulled up for LOOOOONG not meeting UK consumer and legal requirements

.. which Randox are now addressing (well some of the blatant consumer rights abuses if not the other crap) now they dont have a Paid Populist MP protecting them.

 

As it also becomes clear Johnson and pals were throwing Christmas parties (no doubt paid for by Randox and suchlike) while we were all told we couldn't even talk to our grandparents over a fence ..

and regarding the Johnson I'll Party while you lockdown ... and you better not vist your grandma

 

 

The BBC has spoken to someone who attended the party at Downing Street on 18 December reported by the Daily Mirror this morning. (See 9.30am.) According to the BBC, the source said “several dozen” people were there, food and drink were laid on, people played party games and the event went on until past midnight.

Laura Kuenssberg (@bbclaurak)

After @PippaCrerar and @danbloom1 scoop this morning, we're told by an attendee of drinks in No 10 on Dec 18th that there were 'several dozen' people there, with food, drink and games which went on past midnight... https://t.co/42taDI3SKu - No 10's said all rules were followed

- Which is a very carefully worded response from Kuenssberg ... given the rumors (unconfirmed - but also un-denied) that both her (Kuenssberg) and Peston were there ...
... Perhaps it was one of the other lockdown parties they attended

No 10 is looking at a “fresh war” with judges to let ministers “throw out any legal rulings they do not like”, according to The Times this morning. The newspaper claims Boris Johnson is keen to prevent the courts from overruling ministers through judicial reviews. One option is said to be an ‘Interpretation Bill’ to strike down findings the government is not too keen on.

Very worrying, TJ. They don't seem to want any kind of scrutiny.
