    • 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.

‘one ambitious Tory MP’ who had reservations about the scheme when Boris Johnson first proposed it. ‘He agreed with Labour that it wouldn’t work, that it was a waste of money, it was the latest in a long line of gimmicks.

Fujitsu’s chief lobbyist during the fallout from the Horizon scandal is also co-founder of a right-wing pressure group of Tory MPs, i can reveal. The extent of the tech firm’s close ties to the Conservative Party raise further questions over its success at winning government contracts while the sub-postmaster convictions fallout has unfolded.

 

"Clark Vasey, who has been Fujitsu UK’s head of corporate affairs since 2014, is director of the right-wing Blue Collar Conservatives group"

They are unlikely to vote tory - so almost certainly will be the source of funds for tax cuts rather than beneficiaries.

In any case what difference would a temporary tuppunce in the pound make, and in the giving trashing the UK economy more than 2p in the pound? - Its just a pre-GE salve - hoping the stupid will vote Tory before they realise it made them even worse off in even the short term.

- let alone that the 'Torys have already taken 5x that in freezing tax relief for the poorer?

Jenrick presumably aligning himself as more central of the loony right - and of course dead center of the carry on corruption team (IMO)

So, does anyone know why Sunak let himself become the headstone of the rwanda policy - a policy he correctly defined as never gonna work, a waste of money and just a distraction ... 

I see the wing-nuts are now joining half-way reasonable poop MPs in screaming for Sunak to give money to the councils - after supporting and driving the reduction in funding to councils - apart from rich conservative hamlets .. and in Jenricks case allegedly trying to get rich doner pals off paying 30M plus to local councils

.. Of course if sunak had raised this himself those same 'Tory wing-nuts would be screaming 'woke lefty communism wasting taxpayer money  .. and its just a spoiler opportunity for them ...

 

... so Why the heck isnt he giving them a thorough handbagging .. at the very least? He seems to have NOTHING to lose.

What is his plan?

I'm not clear who funds them. Tory donors?

I suppose they're being advised by opaquely funded think tanks in Tufton Street.

Separately, questions are being asked about who funded the survey that David Frost released over the weekend. So many factions in one party...

But doesn't the UK taxpayer also fund the meetings and expenses of these fringe pressure groups - on top of their normal salaries and expenses which should cover all their actions on behalf of the electorate that voted them in  .

BUT They may claim that turning the UK population into indentured slaves is acting in the populations interests .. but .. few doubt these are personal ambitions and actions - they should pay themselves

 

in the meantime - Certain GBnews presenters have suggested some criticism of the orange-brown lumps actions ..

Sound about right?
