    • be very wary upon what you see being recently posted on here 😎 regarding KIH.... all is not what it seems...  
    • 1st - all my posts on CAG are made not only in reply to the specific issue the topic starter makes but also in a general matter to advise any future readers upon the related subject - here it is kings interhigh online school. KIH lets take this topic apart shall we so readers know the real situation and the real truth...and underline the correct way to deal with KIH. https://tinyurl.com/ycxb4fk7 Kings Interhigh Online School issues - Training and Apprenticeships - Consumer Action Group - but did not ever reply to the last post.  but the user then went around every existing topic here on CAG about KIH pointing to the above topic and the 'want' to make some form of group  promoting some  'class action' against KIH . then on the 2nd march this very topic this msg is in was created. all remarkably similar eh? all appear to be or state..they are in spain... ....as well as the earlier post flaunting their linkedin ID, (same profile picture) that might have slipped through via email before our admin killed it.., trying to give some kind of legitimacy to their 'credentials' of being 'an honest poster'....oh and some kind of 'zen' website using a .co.uk  address (when in spain- bit like the Chinese ebay sallers) they run ... and now we get the father of the bride ...no sorry...father of a child at the uk-based international school in question posting ...pretending to be not the 'other alf... do you really think people are that stupid..... ................... nope you never owed that in the 1st place... wake up you got had and grabbed the phone - oh no they are taking me to court under UK jurisdiction...and fell for every trick in the book that they would never ever put in writing that could be placed in front of a court operating under their stated uk jurisdiction wherever you live. T&C's are always challengeable under UK law this very site would not exist if it were not for the +£Bn's bank charges reclaiming from 2006> and latterly the +£Bn's of PPI reclaiming both directly stated in the banks' T&C's were they claimed they were legally enforceable ...not!! they lost big time... why? a waste of more money if you've not got a court claim....... why not use them for a good outcome...go reclaim that £1000 refundable deposit you got scammed out of . people please research very carefully ...you never know who any of these people are that are posting about kings interhigh and their 'stories' they could even be one of their online tutors or a shill . don't get taken in. dx      
    • @KingsParent thank you for sharing your experience.  I also tried contacting the CEO but didn’t get very far. Do you mind sharing his contact details?  kind regards   
    • Thank you Rocky for the clarifications though they did cause a problem at first since an original windsccreen ticket was  of a different breach some time before. The current windscreen ticket only states that you were parked there for 6 minutes which is just one minute over the minimum time allowed as the Consideration period. There is no further proof that you parked there for any longer than that is there? More photographs for example? Moving on to the Notice to Keeper-it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. First there is no parking period mentioned on it. there is the time 20.25 stated which coincides with the W/S ticket but a parking period must have a starting and finishing time-just one time is insufficient to qualify as a parking  period as required in Section 9 [2] [a] . Are there any different photos shown on the NTK comapared to the w/s PCN? Not that that would make a difference as far as PoFA goes since the times required by PoFA should be on the NTK but at the moment Met only appear to show that you stayed there for 6 minutes. Another failure to comply with PoFA is at S9([2][e] where their wording should be "the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; ". You can see on your NTK that they misssed off the words in brackets. Met cannot therefore transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable. Then their is the discrepancy with the post code on the NTK  HA4 0EY which differs from the post code on the contract and the Post Office Postcode Finder which both list it as HA4 0FY. As you were not parked in HA4 0EY the breach did not occur. In the same way as if you were caught speeding in the Mall in London, yet you were charged with speeding in Pall mall London [a street nearby] you would be found not guilty since though you were speeding you were not speeding in Pall Mall. I bow to Eric's brother on his reasoning on post 12 re the electric bay abuse  That wording is not listed on their signs nor is there any mention on the contract of any electric charging points at all let alone who can park there or use them. He is quite right too that the entrance sign is merely an invitaion to treat it cannot form a contrct with motorists. Also the contract looks extremely  short no doubt there will be more when we see the full Witness statement. As it stands there is no confirmation from Standard Life [or Lift !] on the contract that Savills are able to act on their behalf. Also most contracts are signed at the end of the contract to prevent either side adding extra points. So their percentage  chance of winning their case would be somewhere between 0.01 and 0.02.

    • 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.

Will probably watch it on TV.

 

Would prefer an elected president as Head of state. But arguably UK only needs a PM running a Ministerial team with the permission of Parliament to carry out all functions on behalf of UK. Royal family would still exist and attract tourists, but would not have role in anything official like opening Parliament or signing off acts of Parliament etc.

 

So not in favour of swearing an oath as that sounds very old fashioned and just part of theatrical production considerations.

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

I agree about the oath being outdated, I'm not in favour either. I was intrigued by the wording of the oath - which law is it referring to?

 

“I swear that I will pay true allegiance to Your Majesty, and to your heirs and successors according to law. So help me God.”

I'm planning to ignore it completely and to refuse to read anything that even vaguely mentions it ... apart from reading all your interesting opinions on this thread 😃

I'm not against having a monarch as head of state - the alternative if we replaced iit with an elected presidency right now would most likely be President Boris Johnson - but couldn't care less about watching the coronation itself. I'm fine with it happening but can't be arsed to watch it myself. Watching the coronation on TV isn't an indicator of whether you would prefer King Charles or President Johnson as head of state.

 

And people at home in the streets chanting an oath of allegiance, apparently dreamed up by the Archbishop of Canterbury, is just too stupid for words and I won't be doing it. The Sun quotes someone (can't remember who) as saying that the sale of the worldwide TV rights in the Abbey will more than cover the other costs.

 

Most cost extimates seem to be complete inventions although it is promised costs will be published after the event.

 

I'm going to have a go at making the Coronation Quiche though, just for fun.

Good for Charles becoming King. 

 

I'm just going to enjoy my extra day off from work and... No - I will not be pledging my allegiance to the King ;)

I'll be interested to hear about the TV coverage as I don't plan on watching it. From what I've seen, only a third or so of the public plan to.

 

When Charles got married the first time, like fko I was happy with the extra day off. I spent it at the sports club I was a member of wearing the Private Eye t-shirt that said 'Whar wedding?'

They should give him his own show - Have I Got A Meme For You! :) 

 

On a side note, not many parties on near where I live. London is an hour away and I dont fancy fighting the crowds for the coronation...

The original quiche on the Buckingham Palace website isn't very expensive to start with.

 

The Coronation Quiche | The Royal Family

 

Comparing Jack Monroe's it will be a bit cheaper as she substitutes cream cheese for double cream, peas for braoad beans, and omits the trarragon, but I wouldn't have thought there was that much in  it. The Guardian doesn't offer a cost comparison. Still, the more options the merrier I say!

My road is having a street party to celebrate this enormous unnecessary expense, apparently they think they can forbid vehicular access to my road from 08:00 to 23:00.

 

I see that as a challenge.

I do like the Monarchy, well most of them - spare us!!!

 

I would like to watch the Coronation live as it is a historic event but I am busy during the morning, so I will watch it on catch up.

 

As to the oath, I don't think that's necessary and is a personal choice.

... It's being suggested that millions of people should swear an oath of allegiance to the king - what do we think of that?

 

1 hour ago, honeybee13 said:

According to James Cleverly, for the serfs - sorry, public - to swear allegiance is a 'generous offer by the monarch.

 

 

 

 

It's arse about face.

 

Charles should be swearing allegiance TO the people of this country and those parts of the Commonwealth that aren't republics

OH will be watching it... I won't.

She has some respect for what Charlie's gone through while waiting for this.

 

But, she agrees with me that there are too many "hangers on" and the "family" needs slimming down.

I understand Charlie has already started doing that.

 

Other countries fulfil their obligations with a single head of state, why can't we?

Please let us know how the quiche goes, Ethel. :) 

 

 

Well, I've had a go and it's turned out OK, but nowhere near as neat-looking as one the chef in the Buckingham Palace kitchens makes! How does she get her pastry so perfect.... envy, envy.  The King and The Queen Consort's Coronation Quiche - YouTube

 

 

Tastes good though, the tarragon works well.  Popular with all the family so looks like I'll be making it again...
