    • 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)

Rishi Sunak tried to scrap a national volunteering scheme similar to his new “national service” plan when he was chancellor, according to sources who worked with him at the time.

He argued that the National Citizen Service (NCS) was not good value for money but Boris Johnson stepped in to save the programme, i has been told.

Although the NCS was not abolished, it has had its budget cut by more than two thirds since the last general election.

Greater Manchester police has said that it is not taking any further action over allegations that Angela Rayner, the deputy Labour leader, broke the law after she bought a council home which she subsequently sold before becoming an MP.

 

 

so now lets get Jenrick, Johnson, Cummings and all the others claiming here there and elsewhere as their main homes during lockdown home hopping

Yep - investigate Jenrick, Johnson, Cummings and the dozens of 'multi-home Tory MPs and Peers who undoubtedly (and in some cases seemingly self-confessed) did what the Torys tried to smear Raynor with.

As Dan Neidle pointed out on Twitter/X, pensioners used to have a higher personal allowance before they paid tax, but this government removed it a few years ago.

an that - it seems to be the poop approach

We have reduced inflation massively err from the massive amount we caused it to rise too

We will give pensioners a tiny smidgen back - of the much much larger amount we've already ripped them off

We will reduce some taxes a tiny amount.. from the record amount we have raised it too and reduce services twice as much  to pay for our VIPals extravagances

the list goes on

 

Even their smears are feeble

Wet Sunak dribbles over his own feet and needs his pals pretending to be 'real people to ask questions,  while Starmer regularly plays 5 a side

Raynor pays her bills, while Tories sell taxpayer funded second houses for millions ... at a profit - no doubt routed through tax avoidance schemes

Worse than that I think HB

They are mainly claiming increases are reductions

Literally like someone taking a fiver off you AND putting a fiver on your credit card, and then giving you a quid while  just claiming 'I gave you a quid for nothing

.. and thats understating what they have taken, and overstated what little they say they will give in relative terms

.. let alone what they have/would actually take/give

Not that TOR will see this now he's thrown in the hand grenade. Rayner has plenty of female supporters on X, for a start.

As for the council and HMRC, fair enough and I thought Rayner was already in touch with them. That's where it should be dealt with, not the police force.

@tobyjugg2 Daniel Finkelstein thinks the same as you about tax. The Fiver theory.

Don't think we can assume Labour will win the election with a majority. There are 5 weeks to go before polling day and anything can happen.  Labour are on average 21 points ahead in opinion polls, but these range from 12 point lead to a 27 point lead.  If the 12 point lead is most accurate and Labour lose support before polling day, we could be heading for a hung parliament.

The opinion polls have proven to be inaccurate before. 

The most important message must be for everyone to go out to vote. Last election only about 67% voted and for a third of eligible voters to not bother, suggests that they don't think their vote counts or they think it does not make any difference who gets into Government.  Website below notes election turnout percentages.

WWW.STATISTA.COM

In the UK's general election of 2019, voter turnout was 67.3 percent, a 1.5 percent drop compared with the previous general election in 2017.
