    • @ReuTheo Thanks very much. Coincidentally, it has now been exactly over 1 year since I sent my parcel with Evri and began my enquiries with them as to where my parcel is (and eventually coming to this forum / starting this thread). I understand how you are feeling. It's why I kept this thread active and detailed, so anyone who reads it, can clearly understand what was happening at each stage of the process, so they don't feel anxious or overwhelmed with the process through MCOL, mediation, arranging for trial, working through the WS / Court bundle, and finally going in front of a judge. The work has been put in so hopefully you (and everyone else) now has a good WS template to use and build the case. I agree the legal language and specifics are not easy to understand at first glance by layman / non-legal persons. What I found useful is reading the WS and researching some of the Acts in my own time so that I could understand the legal speak. This reading / research really helped me to have a clear idea of what the rules/laws are and how they apply to my case (and likely your case also). As you know, this is a self-help forum so you certainly got to put in the time/work to understand your case/argument. It will be worth it in the end (I say this from personal experience - given this time last year, I was banging my head against a wall with Evri and couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel). Above all else, the team on this forum such as @BankFodder and @jk2054 are a tremendous help with getting the WS in the right state and giving guidance. Don't be afraid to ask questions on this forum - it's for your ultimate benefit (even if sometimes the responses seem harsh - don't take it personally. If my experience is anything to go by, it'll help give clarity and maybe even close a potential gap in your case). Good luck with your case.

    • 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.

Quite interesting that the Conservative East Midlands  Mayor candidate doesnt mention conservative on his promotion LOL

 

but he does claim that he, a Conservative politician, is the man to fix the 14 years of Conservative devastation of the region - inc 'fixing' problems inc the utter devastation of the roads, bus and train services that his party have  imposed

 

Must all rotate around the meaning of fixing he actually means ..

fixing noun

 
.. or perhaps he just means 'fixing' - preventing change

The solution to this seems to be to just wave through goods at the border.

Does anyone know how it's going with the facility at Sevington, where lorries are meant to drive 22 miles inland for customs and other checks? If I had a dodgy cargo, I would head somewhere else...

Ports have spent millions of their own cash on high-spec inspection facilities — but still don’t know how they’ll recoup their costs.

Yep - even faulty/missing documentation - just wave em through

'protecting our borders'

.. shouldn't that be 'protecting their businesses and smugglers, while making our businesses and smugglers pay'?

or perhaps more 'catchy ..

Gove - like his consultant firm enriching consultant company pals, jolly squandering, target missing Homes England ...

 

 

The taxpayer-funded agency says it is “extremely pleased with the strong performance and outcomes” it is achieving and well placed to deliver more housing.

they have missed all of their targets

last month an i investigation into the quango revealed concerns about a “dysfunctional”, “sick” organisation that had kept councils waiting for years and frustrated builders who ended up walking away.

 

Leaders of the agency supposed to be tackling England’s housing crisis are under fire from their own staff for neglecting delivery and a “failure” to manage spending, including nearly £400k on an internal meeting, i can reveal.

first indications seem to be pointing to a very low turnout ..

Which is likely great news for the Tory and Re-form-a-torys

 

I'll still be surprised, even on a low turnout, and the unreformed tories in so many peoples *hit lists, if the reformatory party get 12% of the vote

So, Sunak has managed to get someone to 'volunteer to go to Rwanda hasn't he?

.. for just £3000 payment to the person plus 5 years free board and lodging isnt it?

- cost to UK taxpayer over £300M+ (300 million quid+) isnt it? - Bargain says Rwanda, especially with all the profit we made privately selling those luxury chalets Bravermann advertised for us

 

I wonder how many brits would jump at that offer? Thousands? Hundreds of thousands?

Lets see, up to 5 years free board and lodging and £3k in my pocket ..

I'd go - and like that person - just come back if/when I get bored.

First job - off to Botswana for a week to see the elephants.

 

Of course the paid volunteers going to Botswana are meaningless - Rwanda have REPEATEDLY said they wont take any forcibly trafficked people in breach of international law eh?

Have the poops actually got any civil servants to agree to go yet - probably end up as more massive payments to VIPal contractors to go and sit there doing nowt shortly eh?

A true shame for Street really. A genuine asset for the region caught in the crossfire of the incompetence of his Westminster counterparts. I hope the Labour Mayor can attract the same investment for Birmingham and the surrounding areas. 

The Muslim vote didn't really boycott in the West Midlands, they voted for the independent who campaigned pretty much exclusively on Gaza.

Street did his best by removing any trace of the Tories from his campaign literature, as you say it's a shame for him.

I see Sunak is clutching at the only poll that shows the Tories in not too bad a light, the hung Parliament one. The boss of Ipsos and Sir John Curtice have both said it's flawed.

'Sir John Curtice, the polling expert, also projected the Conservatives nine points behind in the national vote share but advised against using this ­data to estimate Westminster seats. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today ­programme: “It’s quite long been the case, certainly since the late 1980s, that the way that people vote in local elections doesn’t necessarily exactly mirror the way that they would vote in a general election.” '

@lolerz

Cameron seems to be the Uk leader on that - but he has nothing to lose and everything to gain doesn't he - but I'm not saying he doesn't believe what he is saying or the stance hes taking - I think he does.

I can understand ALL the other politicians being 'careful - especially as the UK has zip/nada/zero influence with Netanyahu - who is unquestionably looking to destroy Gaza and let the settlers in. Its a no-win situation for everyone who gets involved whatever happens - the sideline must look like a very good place to be for many whatever mud might be (rightly) slung their way.

 

Its a horrendous situation, which both Hamas, Netanyahu and the settlers Israeli invading forces make unsolvable.

There are so many factors, and local elections are often far more about local issues and people, but the one previously general rule in a general election are that the hard core Tories vote Tory and hard core Labour voters vote labour

 

Gaza seems to have dulled both the muslim and Jewish labour votes more than the Tories - and I can see why - but do the muslim voters really think that the Tories will do ANYTHING other than talk and then do whatever the Americans say - and thats support Israel whatever they do first and foremost in real terms?

Reform has unquestionably affected the Tory local vote - so should affect the GE vote a bit more, but has largely been factored in - reform isnt new in any way - its all Brexitish although there seem to be far more ex 'conservative' core reform/ukip/brexitish voters than ex 'labour' core voters - about 6-8% of the national vote in a GE seems to me. A little up on prior brexitish/faragits scores

But the large swathes of center ground voters who decide who wins the election seem to have utterly deserted the Tories in their millions - although they have gone to labour, libdems and greens - and many real conservatives are in limbo despite Sunak being naturally more a thatcherite than most - his party currently seems far less so.

Johnson promised much, and many were taken in, just as people (inc me) made that mistake with Farage in the early days - but we now know that they are self serving liars who can't be trusted with anything - although I still think it likely The Liar will be back - but most likely after the GE (60/40)

Starmer is lacking in charisma and presence, but others in his cabinet should shine. But Corbynistas could still cause trouble - another group that seem happy to drag everything down if they think it suites

 

Johnson perhaps could reunite some of the Tory party - but he seems to have numerous criminal and political convistions sitting in the background should he try

Lying about giving preference to dogs in the Afghan evacuations - and lying about it

Unlawfully proroguing parliament

embezzlement re funds and spending (eg flat referb) .. repeatedly

Taking jobs before he should after being booted - should lose his PM pension and rights over that IMO

the list goes on ad nauseam
