    • Another one. Top Tory placed dozens of bets on the election date. It looks as if he kept them under £100, thinking they wouldn't be investigated, but the Gambling Commission is looking at potential winnings as well as the size of the bet. How many more are there? https://archive.ph/StZqL
    • Calm Down please.... there is only one way to deal with this and that is - PROPERLY. Being surrounded by 'lawyers' who deal with 'disputes', just like going to the likes of CAB, in this instance has, most probably, to date,  sadly not helping you here. Such people always project an Aura of confidence, when the truth is they don't actually have the vast successful experience of the members here in dealing with the likes BMW. there are over 350 threads here . as far i gather this is the situation, In April, a car was purchased by your son from BMW. Finance taken out to purchase it has since been paid in full, as well as full payment for an annual Insurance policy. within 6 weeks, it was discovered and confirmed in writing, via a report from a local garage, that the car indeed had numerous performance modifications undertaken. Namely being remapped and with modifications to the exhaust system. having contacted his ins co, they require a further £5k to uprate his policy, without it renders the existing insurance policy invalid, thus the car is not being driven.  again within this 6 weeks, you wrote to BMW rejecting the car (we need to see this letter please. scan it up to PDF, please read our UPLOAD guide). at first BMW were onboard, even sending their own inspector, confirming the mods etc. but in the last 9 days since said inspection, comms have now gone dead. .................. you have 2 options - 1 - allow BMW to sort the car FOC and without hassle to him, but probably within their own snails pace timeframe. 2- EVENTUALLY bring legal action - this would most probably be under contract law, not a claim under the consumer rights act . (as financially you would lose out big time) to do 2. which is not easy and rather complex to calculate the financial sum involved...... we need all the info @BankFodder has requested. of many, but one good reason for this is say for this new mot, show the old one was suspect, good bargaining chip against 2500mls usage deductions... your call but you need to do this properly or not at all...............    
    • Hi, I've been reading through many of the stories in the sub-forum and I understand the process to be to send a Letter of Claim to the EVRi - in the post and to their customer support email and to sign up for MCOL.  I have looked at the various Letters of Claim and the MCOL claim forms - particulars of claim and I have gone through all of the screens on MCOL website to put in the final details so it is ready to go after the 14 days from when I send the Letter of Claim (of course assuming that EVRi dismisses my Letter of Claim to pay me in full!).  I also see the advise is to decline any mediation particularly because I have specified the parcel contents and value to EVRi when shipping it. I have put both the Letter of Claim and the forms from the MCOL particulars of claim into a single PDF for review.  The stories in the sub-forum often indicate people shipping with EVRi but some purchase through or have involved such companies as Parcel2Go and so I wasn't sure about the statement I made in the Letter of Claim if it was totally accurate to say "I am applying my third party rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999"? I just wanted to confirm the correct wording.  In my case the parcel shipment was paid for on the EVRi website and sent at the Tesco EVRi Parcelshop.  On the MCOL claim form I have referenced Section 57 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 in response to EVRi customer service hiding behind their lack of ability to insure delivery of laptops and their bogus non-compensated and prohibited items as a means to avoid any responsibility for them losing such items. Thank you for taking a look to see if there are any inaccuracies or amendments to the Letter of Claim - when it is looking good I will send via email and post it to EVRi.  Having drafted the particulars of the claim on MCOL, I shall be ready to submit the claim on the MCOL site when the 14 day period has elapsed and proceed from there.   Thanks for everyone's help!

    • Wow quite surprised by your response in all honesty as I can’t see where you have requested details of the car. The car is insured and that was budgeted for and paid in full, the increase of £5k is because of the modifications, which no we didn’t budget for as we didn’t plan to buy a modified car, so no that doesn’t form any part of wanting to return the car, perhaps you don’t understand the impact modifications have on insurance premiums? Thanks for your help so far but feel going the legal route probably suits us better.

    • 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.

Should we trust Sunak or the next PM to fix the Country's problems? (title revised 24/10/22)

Aiming for a looong punch line

"latest surveys have transfixed frightened Tories for three main reasons.

First, because they use unusually large sample sizes and MRP, the snappy acronym for a technique called multilevel regression and post-stratification, to translate the data into a projection of the composition of the next parliament were the country voting tomorrow.

Second, the MRP method has had a decent predictive record over recent elections.

And third, MRP aims to forecast outcomes seat by seat. It is scary for Tory MPs that their party languishes so far behind in the headline polls; it is even more terrifying to be told that they are individually fated to be felled.

 

The YouGov projection, published last week, has the Tories plunging to just 155 MPs, Labour surging to more than 400, and Sir Keir Starmer enthroned at Number 10 on a Tony Blair-like 154-seat majority.

The Survation analysis, commissioned by Best for Britain and published over the Easter weekend, was even more of a bed-wetter for Tories. It projected that they would be crushed to fewer than 100 MPs while Labour would have 468 in the next parliament, resulting in an enormous 286-seat majority."

BUT

There’s a consolation that the prime minister"  ...

David Lammy dares to read out a genuine breaking news headline to the ire of GBNews MP-presenters and staff - who allegedly complain multiple times each

 

Just waiting for some cretin to whine about Lammy daring to read out an actual  breaking news headline on his show, instead of spouting unchallenged and unbalanced (sic) right wing propaganda .. as GBNews does day after day after day.

It seems the 57 GBNews supporters and presenters complained to ofcom at his utter gall

 

"During that broadcast, Mr Lammy read out a breaking news bulletin, informing listeners of his LBC show that Sir Jeffrey Donaldson had resigned as DUP leader after being charged with allegations of a historical nature.

Ofcom is understood to be investigating the programme in relation to two sections of the Broadcasting Code, which state that news in whatever form must be presented with due impartiality, and that politicians cannot act as a newsreader, interviewer or reporter in any news programmes without exceptional editorial justification."

GBNews was rumoured to have claimed that their copy-write was breached.

BBC panelist shares scathing criticism

He was also scathing in regards to the knighthood dished out to Mohamed Mansour over Easter. The Egyptian businessman gave a £5 million donation to the Tories ahead of receiving his honour – prompting Hislop to call for legal action to be taken.

“This is specifically not allowed. Mr. Mansour used to be a Cabinet Minister in Egypy, he has given the Tories a huge amount of money, and immediately gets a knighthood. That seems straightforwardly corrupt.

Shouldn’t they both be in jail?”

I've just clicked on the claim

Sunack might get refuges on a plane and 'off the ground'

but hes not claiming he will get any to Rwanda - unless its there and straight back  .. especially as Rwanda has already sold most the homes built on British taxpayer money as advertised by swella Realtor-man

 

Anyway, talking of expenses for houses - bet this hasn't changed .. any for the better at least

At least 15 MPs are each letting out a London home for more than £10,000 a year while renting another property on expenses, the BBC has found.

 

WWW.BBC.CO.UK

At least 15 are claiming up to £22,920 a year on rental costs, research by the BBC finds.

The MPs, of whom 13 are Conservatives and three are ministers, are claiming up to £22,920 a year for rent payments.

 

Long past time one of the tower blocks was used for MP's london residences. Bet they would soon become desirable and grandly refurbished .. Mind you, they'd probably sublet them ...
