    • So much for protecting our borders - Guv all just dog whistles   Office for the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration to have budget slashed - Neal The Office for the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration will have its budget cut by five per cent year on year, David Neal has revealed, Holly Bancroft reports. Mr Neal is giving evidence to the Home Affairs Committee in a one-off session on immigration after being sacked by James Cleverly. The home secretary said Mr Neal had “breached the terms of appointment and lost the confidence of the home secretary” after Mr Neal warned of “dangerous” failings by border force that he claimed were allowing “high-risk” aircraft to land in Britain without security checks. The Home Office had “categorically rejected” the claims, saying that Mr Neal “has chosen to put misleading data into the public domain”.

    • "In an explosive revelation, Mr Staunton also alleged that the current Post Office CEO threatened to resign over a HR investigation into his own conduct. Mr Staunton said Post Office chief executive Nick Read had fallen out with the HR director “and she produced a document that was 80 pages in length” and there was just one paragraph in there about his own conduct and use of “politically incorrect comments”. Mr Staunton said Mr Read was “really quite upset” and threatened to resign a number of times. But just an hour before Mr Staunton’s testimony, Mr Read had denied - under oath - that he had ever having tried to resign."   I’m victim of smear campaign says sacked Post Office chair as he accuses CEO of lying WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK Henry Staunton, sacked by business secretary Kemi Badenoch, gives evidence to Commons committee     see also from the post above "Carl Creswell, an official from the Department for Business and Trade said Tidswell had told Ben Tidswell that some board members might resign if Henry Staunton were not sacked)" Tidswell says he was right (See 11.14am.)"   So baden-ouch seems to be at the very least twisting the truth - no surprise there    
    • As Bazooka Boo said much of the PCN missing and it is the missing pieces that can help your case since the PCN is governed by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 . If the wording does not comply,  you as keeper are not liable to pay the PCN. Even if you were the driver as Courts do not accept that the keeper and the driver are the same person it will be pretty hard to prove that you were the driver. All it needs for you to know the whether the PCN is compliant is to post up the whole PCN front and back.

    • 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.

Hi all, 

 

the driver used this carpark next to a local shop when popping in on a Sunday, didn`t notice the signs, though they are quite clearly there though. Is there anything that can be done here? They were there for all of 3 minutes. The company for this car park is closed over the weekends, so they've not inconvenienced anyone with their parking. 

 

Will get the PDF scanned up, this afternoon. 

 

Cheers all

Chipz

Thank Homer - They do have a pretty clear picture of the driver's face driving in. 

 

Just had a dig around the forum. Looks like do nothing till Letter of Claim comes in.

Picture of you is not relevant, only the fact they used POFA to identify you as the keeper of the vehicle, if the NTK does not refer to POFA then it is not compliant and they cannot transfer liability from the driver to the registered keeper.

 

As you said the best action is do nothing (keep all their threatening and begging letters though) unless you get a letter before action, then it's snotty letter time.

If you were only there three minutes, then that is well within the "consideration period".  Please post up their invoice when you get a moment.

We could do with some help from you.

Invoice :D - What`s the max for a consideration period? 

 

DX, thank you for posting up that news link - certainly echo`s my feelings, feels like we have a cancer in the community now. I`m unsure on ANPR and CCTV as my tech knowledge says you use ANPR on CCTV.

 

Attached the NTK, with personal bits blocked out.

The comment about an invoice wasn't a joke.  That's what you've received - an invoice.

 

At first glance GXS have messed up massively.

 

What is written in the "Time of Contravention" box that you've crossed out?

 

And can you make out the times that are stamped on the photos?

 

It's likely you have a get-out-of-jail-free card here due to their incompetence.

That sounds promising Dave! It`s still amusing to have you call it buy its actual name :)

 

17:32 in the Time of contravention box and I can read on the photos 17:32:52 and 17:26:25 so twice as long as I originally stated.

Sorry to keep bombarding you with questions - but there is a reason.

 

We can't see the photos very well.  The vast majority of cases here are ANPR - i.e. you see the car while moving, in and out of the car park entrance/exit.  Are the photos like that?

 

Or are the photos of the car when parked? -

why have you hidden everything!!

only need to hide your name & address, reg no, pcn/ref number. and and qr or barcodes

leave everything else!

 

if that 3rd picture is one of your car parked up.

its a cctv system not anpr.

 

so they should be issuing windscreen tickets and not sending the NTK till after 29days , but this lot are crap amateurs in the parking world anyway.

 

so these solicitors have hired a bunch of useless idiots, none of their speculative invoices are ever gonna be enforceable, shows how crap the sols must be and they themselves call the tickets FINES!!!

Thank you dx! Agree with your comments, going to take the time to continue the trend from the local community of leaving a google review to let them know how I feel. 

 

Will park this for now (oh yes, that was a pun) ;). Will touch base if there is any follow up. 

 

Thank you Dave, DX, and Homer for your advice and willingness to help others in these matters! It is very much appreciated!

So you were there for 6:37. 

 

The government Code of Practice allows a 5-minute consideration period, the BPA CoP allows 5 minutes, and the IPC (the fleecers' trade association) CoP allows a "reasonable" time.  Logically you need time to read these new signs that have just cropped up and decide to leave the car park and reject the "contract" they offer. 

 

Then you need time to exit the car park - and all three CoPs allow 10 minutes as a grace period.

 

Ergo, you left within the allowed periods.  The jokers wouldn't have a hope in hell of doing court.

 

I've had a search of our site, GXS seem a small village outfit who haven't a clue.  Only once over many years have these clowns dared take a Cagger to court - and in that case they wet themselves before the hearing and gave in.

Thanks Dave, saw you had reached out on a few other threads for updates. Appreciate that! 

 

Such an evil thing they are doing at a time when most are struggling with the cost of living! I feel for the people in the local community, especially the elderly, who don`t know about such wonderful resources like this site and will pay up out of fear.

 

Will be popping a donation over, thank you again all.

The sign is complete rubbish too.

 

No mention of the £100 charge until half way down the sign and then after two reductions in font size.

 

"All vehicles must be authorised by GXS Services Ltd" with no mention of how to do that.  I wonder what happens to clients of the solicitors who park there?

*The sign is complete rubbish too*  Had a feeling that might be the case :)

 

Couple of reviews on google saying they had popped in when office was closed, to post thing through the door or check opening times, and have received invoices. Hopefully they`ve not paid them! 

 

Cheers again, will keep updating with any additional correspondence I get.

yes and any DCA letters that come.

only worry about a letter of claim from GXS or a solicitor stating them as their client.

next time please NAME your scan file properly...see its name now.

I see someone has posted this as a Google Maps review.

Couldn't have put it better myself 😉

Two things.  Firstly, these are not fines, they are invoices, a private company doesn't have the power to issue fines.  Fancy solicitors not knowing the difference!  Secondly, there is indeed an industry-wide grace period so everyone getting these invoices for stopping for a few minutes should simply refuse to pay.  GXS are highly unlikely to try small claims court, and if they did they would lose.  Free legal advice is available on several consumer advice sites on the web.
