    • Please fill in the sticky as dx asked. Was the kids' party inside the Bizspace area?
    • Hi dx, I think so I'd have to dig out the paperwork to double check. Pretty sure it is though. Pm
    • I have a problem, a serious one. On mid November 2023 my boiler (installed 10/21) failed and flagged up the code 29.10: blocked flue. The EB engineer came out and replaced the fan, said it was unusual, put it down to storms. On 16/12/23 the same thing happened. Another WB engineer came 18/12/23 and fixed it, but said it isn't the boiler, it is the flue, and that he would mend it this time under the guarantee but they would not do that again if it failed unless I got the installers to reinstal it. On 27/12 it failed again. 29.10. I did not call them because of their saying I would have to pay. I contacted the installers who responded, then stopped when they saw the WB report of 18/12. By February I had had no central heating or hot water since Christmas, so I posted a job for a heating engineer to give an opinion on the flue installation. He found the flue blocked with vegetation from the trees my neighbour planted near the wall, and which I have been desperate to get uprooted. He gave a report and photos, and agreed the flue needed reinstalling. I got nothing from the original installers, so I contacted the Gas Safe Register. They sent an inspector, who gave a full report and had the original installers down and they reinstalled the flue as instructed, and notified LA Building Regulations.   On Friday I received a certificate from the Gas Register saying the reinstallation of the flue had  been carried out by a registered heating engineer.  It was from the installers, and the certificate does say that it is 'not conclusive evidence' and they had notified the local authority Building Regulations on my behalf.  As I only received it Friday, I have not yet pursued it. On Thursday, as the installers said they had reinstalled and there was nothing wrong with the flue installation, and that the boiler was not working, I wrote to WB and asked them to come and repair the boiler.   During all this time I have been in contact with various people, including Citizens Advice.  I had hoped they would refer it to the Trading Standards because you cannot contact Trading Standards yourself.  I am hoping they will.  I have other serious issues to deal with.  I don't think elderly people are helped as much as they should be.   I had an email from them Friday - yesterday - demanding I deposit £200 with them before they come down to repair it. I told them I query that, and said I will consult on my consumer rights, sending copies of that to all concerned. This is their response: Thank you for your email. The £200.00 is reserved to ensure the work has been completed correctly – in the case where remedial work has been resolved, no charge will be taken. This is due to the amount of calls we have reattended in the past where remedial work has been said to have been completed but hasn’t been. If the issues detailed in the report from our previous visit have been issued, the money will not process and will simply go from reserved back to the customers account without ever leaving it. Under our Terms and Conditions: 6.1 Assignment and Subcontracting. We may at any time and without any notice to you assign, transfer, charge, subcontract or deal in any other manner with all or any of our rights or obligations under these Terms. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person with our prior written consent, which we will not unreasonably withhold or delay. Please refer to our website for full terms and conditions." Can they demand the money up front like this?   It is a week's state pension.  Would anyone give a whole week's pay for something which should be under guarantee?  I can copy and paste the various reports I have had from Worcester Bosch, including the one of 10/2021 when it was installed and failed 24 hours later.  The boiler worked until November 2023.  Also, I cannot understand the terms and conditions, because the boiler was given under the ECO3 scheme.  I have been on disability benefit - DLA - since 1992 and I don't remember signing anything with Worcester Bosch.  I am not sure if I am allowed to attach all the correspondence here.  It will take time, because the page keeps being unresponsive and I have to keep clicking 'wait'

    • 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.

It seems Rwanda doesn't want to sign the treaty that is supposed to get round the Supreme Court ruling on whether Rwanda is a safe country.

They're objecting to loss of sovereignty.

seems to me that the 'delay (kick into the long grass) is what the UK taxpayer is actually paying vastly in excess of £140M+ for

.. or do the Tories really want to trash the good friday agreement and their really crappy trade deal with the USA along with many other of the UK's international agreements which rely/refer?

 

Hmmm - all those downsides, with the 'upside (sic) of maybe 200 migrants at a million quid each trafficked?

vs

a million quid each for 200 migrants not to be trafficked, issue kicked into long grass,  - and some dog whistles for the shallow end

(bargain - its only taxpayer money after all)

'Even if ministers had somehow managed to turn around every single dinghy leaving a French beach last year, legal migration would still have hit record levels.

A crucial stat .. that continues to Sept

 

"The increase in non-EU immigration in the YE June 2023 was mainly driven by migrants coming for work (up to 33% from 23% in YE June 2022), largely attributed to those coming on health and care visas;

in contrast, those arriving on humanitarian routes decreased from 19% to 9% over the same period. "

 

- read the above carefully

I'm loath to explain as there are some aspects which fly in the face of the Tory right-wing dog whistles - LOL (let their hate shine and shoot themselves)

 

Hint

The Tory right can hardly admit they need experienced workers and dont want to invest 'locally eh?

Not many right wingers actually support the Rwanda plan which was always going to be a non starter due to leftie lawyers 
Far better to have built secure detention centres here, decided the applications for asylum within a few days and deported those failing immediately ( not too many genuine asylum seekers lob their ID into the channel prior to arrival)
As for allowing in extended families to “support “ students is quite ludicrous 
Can only hope the Tories are reduced to a handful of MPs and a new party emerges that actually delivers what the overwhelming silent majority actually want and what they voted for on three separate occasions only to be ignored

Far better to have decided the applications for asylum within a few days and deported those failing immediately and integrate the others swiftly

 - apart from being unable to deport people to places where there are no agreements in place thanks to Brexitish incompetence - I hope you are not advocating just throwing them in the sea as you seemed to be excusing the mass murder of Palestinians ?

Fact of the day

Michael Gove’s flagship bill to end leaseholds on newly built houses in England and Wales

contains no provision to end leaseholds on newly built houses in England and Wales

 

- Kiran Stacey Political correspondent

 

What the ... ?

1. Downing street didn't want it - but didnt want the flack from not including it - so farcically include it without the headline bit

2. Torys want it done via amendments so they can drop some huge  lumps of poop in with it that only they want passing and hope to slide it through without an immediate uproar in parliament

Israel knew of Hamas plot more than a year ago

Israeli officials obtained Hamas’s battle plan for the devastating Oct. 7 terrorist attack more than a year before it happened, according to documents, emails and interviews, but they dismissed it as aspirational, considering it too difficult for Hamas to carry out. In fact, Hamas followed the blueprint with shocking precision.

Over about 40 pages, a document code-named Jericho Wall by the Israeli authorities outlined exactly the kind of devastating invasion that led to the deaths of about 1,200 people. It did not set a date, but it described a methodical assault designed to overwhelm the fortifications around the Gaza Strip, take over Israeli cities and storm key military bases.

Last year, shortly after the document had been obtained, officials in the Israeli military said that Hamas’s intentions were unclear. Then, in July, just three months before the attacks, a veteran Israeli intelligence analyst warned that Hamas had conducted an intense, daylong training exercise that appeared similar to what was outlined in the blueprint. Those concerns were brushed off.

Concessions: Israeli security officials have already acknowledged that they failed to protect the country, and the government is expected to assemble a commission to study the events leading up to the attacks. The Jericho Wall document lays bare the missteps that culminated in what officials now regard as the worst Israeli intelligence failure in five decades.

Any notion that this novel coronavirus arose from contaminated bat meat sold in the wet market at Wuhan is a fairytale for the credulous, a juvenile explanation that insults the intelligence of every serious virologist.

The Chinese are to blame for the Covid pandemic and the deaths (estimated at seven million globally) and long-term illnesses it caused, as well as the incalculable damage to the world's economy - to the extent that it would not be inappropriate for nations to demand substantial reparations from Beijing.”
