    • 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.

Whats the difference between neoliberalism and free market low regulation thaterism?

 

 

Genuine question. Googling it, just like talking to people about it,  seems to give as many different interpretations of those labels as there are different people answering, and more seems to define the 'answerers' politics than the question

 

Have to laugh at all the claims that blairism was neoliberalism, when it clearly wasn't.

It wasn't traditional Red flag Labour, but certainly was NOT Thatcherism.

 

I consider myself a little to the left of Blair in a number of issues, and a fraction to the right in others.

Which undoubtedly makes me a lefty woke Thatcherite in many (rolls) eyes

 

But Johnsonism/Trussism (so far) appears to be lie and serve self'ism to me. All in an incompetent, dishonest and blustering way.

It's not a good look, is it? I see he's 'too busy' to go to New York with Truss now...

 

To busy to be arrested on arrival ?

Isn't this all part of the ramped up 'Russian funded Interference' investigation?

 

Apparently Russia spent £300 million in interfering in western elections - a days worth of spending on the Ukraine invasion, and FAR more effective.

 

 

Mind you, Johnson must be happy as more people seem to be saying 'Jesus, we thought Johnson was bad, but even The Liar was better than this' .. forgetting that all this corruption, deceit and incompetence expanded under him, and that Truss is really just a Johnson number 2

 

-BUT that of course ISN'T the binary choice we should be making,

which is: Jesus we need to throw these 'unPopulist Tory lying corrupt **** out of power for at least a generation.

The brexiters have a bit of something to find joy in though, being as they kept (falsely and/or stupidly) claiming that a weak pound was a bonus when it kept falling due to brexit and failure to get the all the benefits oven ready deal the brexit leaders claimed ..

 

Well, they must be ecstatic now that the pound challenged the last 30 year low of the ERM crisis, and that there is significant downwards pressure still on the UKP meaning more reason for 'joy for them.

 

... despite all the chunks of the UK debt mountains that have interest and payments based on the dollar .. meaning an instant benefit free increase in debt and interest charges

.. ALL as project fact stated.

 

Brexit - project Brex-hit - the disaster that just keeps on taking

 

as Truss says 'making the rich richer makes the poor richer everyone should be making the rich richer'

but its not 'trickle down economics' .. lets just call it a very select partttty

Yet another brexiter oven ready, all the benefits Golden Goosing proven to be just another dead duck

- as project FACT stated.

 

- as a unified and independent Island of Ireland in the EU takes another step forward

 

 

Liz Truss accepts US-UK trade deal off the table, as Biden tells PM his problems with protocol move

 
 

No time for shopping at Bloomingdale’s or a stroll in Central Park during Liz Truss’s trip to New York City. The prime minister spent her time in the Big Apple scrambling to keep the special relationship alive. US president Joe Biden shared his displeasure over Truss’s plan to override the Northern Ireland Protocol, the White House made clear. Truss was forced to admit a post-Brexit US-UK trade deal was out of the question in the “short and medium term”. The PM did parlez on the protocol with EU chief Ursula von der Leyen in NYC, but there was no sign of new negotiations. Tory, Labour and cross-party peers have been plotting on how best to thwart the protocol bill in the Lords. One option is to delay it for nine months to give more time for talks – if they ever emerge.

 

Meanwhile, new Northern Ireland secretary Chris Heaton-Harris said he would have to call another Stormont election if no executive is in place by 28 October. The Tory minister warned that a pre-Christmas election is no “idle threat”. Yikes.

 

 

 

 

NI secretary Chris Heaton-Harris on new Stormont election:

“Is it an idle threat? I don’t think so. It is no threat at all, it is a fact that the legislation says that is what I have to do.”

Been saying parity with the dolar was a consequence of the Brexiters brexit since before the referendum

given the £ v $ tested $1.03 last night - I think it may have been an understatement.

 

 

I know its quite usual for Tories to rip the plebs off half way through an election cycle, but i think this is more than that.

They are quite literally scraping the dregs out of a bankrupted economy, and I think Truss expects to lose the next election, and the Brexiters are happy with that as they will then immediately start blaming Labour for the issues they have blatantly and wantonly caused.

Actually HB, I think its more appropriate to say that the markets were quite shaken by Truss and Kwazis fiscal event

 

... and lets not forget it seems the UK Con crony traders who were briefed ahead of it all by Kwazi seem to have shorted the GBP (again) on the run up to it making fortunes on the pounds collapse.

(arguably Governmental Insider trading with cronys? - which will also have shaken the markets,

although Kwasi would claim its normal to brief 'markets - but they went on a short the pound rampage apparently - again - just like redwood allegedly did)

 

Given the Populist 'Torys have delivered squat on their Brexishit assurances, and have trashed the UK's markets and its econony. all thats left for them is rob the taxpayer to enrich their pals to ensure nice consultancy income from them when they get kicked out.

 

The BoE is in a difficult position now. What it needs to do is raise interest rates quite sharply, which will almost certainly hit all the folk who aren't on fixed mortgages, and all those who have hit the plastic just to pay their bills

 

I think the UK is in for an even rockier ride.

Just a couple of years of the hard right ERG in the driving seat with incompetent unconscionable patsy's at the helm and the UK has lost not just its financial standing, but its reputation.

I see that one of the investigations into Johnson (accuri while mayor) is a major cop-out and says 'the rules need strengthening' and didn't adhere to the Nolan principles. 

..Rather than 'He's a lying corrupt ****** who wasted taxpayer money and took his trollop on Mayoral trips at taxpayer expense while 'laying' the foundations for cronyism and VIP lanes in his government.

 

Johnson is rumored to have said ' I always adhere to the Nolan principals ' I'm always in the mood for dancing, especially at partys and I always want attention to me.
