    • 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

    • 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.

How is this any different to you, for example, driving your car on the road with no MOT or lapsed tax? It is presumably your responsibility to keep track of your affairs and ensure you pay things as they're due.

In this instance, though I accept I'm far from an expert, I can't see how you could have a valid complaint. You did not have a valid permit and you were ticketed as a consequence.

If you don't have a calendar, diary or similar, there are services available such as "don't forget the milk" that will remind you by notification and email when things of note fall due. Maybe something like that would benefit you.

Edited to say: That position clearly changes if you are normally invoiced in advance, or possibly even if you're normally reminded in advance.

thanks for the response,, however usually over the many years i have been paying they always send a reminder through the post,,, via letter,,,, this time they have removed the in windscreen display ,,, and only sent reminder though email which goes to my junk maill,,,,

however if i did not renew my permit i understand,, but i renewed it for another year,,,,,, why should i pay for the ticket if i have just renewed again ?

the council then said i should speak to the corporation,,, who did not respond,, now council have come back say i owe them money,,,,,, seems totally unfair and all would of been resolved if a reminder would have come through the post,,,

fact is i have renewed again for another year as i have paid for the last , but now council chasing and not the pcn company,,, seems odd this??

and a bit scammy

@hemz

1.  If you only renewed your parking permit after you got a PCN then of course the PCN still stands.  If your old permit had expired before the PCN was issued then the PCN is valid.  But if you have evidence that you had renewed the permit before the PCN was issued, you might have a case.

2.  As per dx100uk you are confusing the issue by apparently talking about both the council and a separate(?) parking corporation.  Is this (a) a council parking permit and a council PCN issued by a separate company on behalf of the council, or (b) a private parking permit and ticket and nothing whatsoever to do with the council?

What council or parking company is it?

thanks guys so much for your responses,, so english is my language im uk born n bred,, just was typing quickly as im at work.

yes you are correct my membership expired, but this is a resident permit which when you own or live at an address you pay yearly for that privilege, i have been doing and paying this consecutively for say nearly 10 years now,, every year prices increase however we still pay,,,,

previously there was at least a reminder through the post saying you need to update / renew the permit.  then it all went electrical so the badge inside the windscreen was no longer issued , similar to a tax disc, and they still sent reminders one month prior to expiring

this year now only emails are sent out as a reminder , and in my case it went straight through to my junk mail,,, 

therefore i didnt know i had renewal and it had expired, thus me getting a ticket outside my house

i then called up my local Bexley council to which she said challenging the fine is to do with an  external company, which i did,, i told them can i just renew the membership as per every year and to cancel the ticket,, surely a straight forward process,

i bought a new parking permit,, yearly of course, it started a few days after as i couldn't back date it,, which is silly as it was a matter of few weeks

now the Bexley council have responded against my appeal 2 months later with a no,, and that the council require the additional £55 .. what is this silly money making scheme?

Who is this external company?

It would help a lot if you could upload all your correspondence as suggested by DX.
