    • "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.

    • I was basically honest from the start so then he just asked when the childcare ended he filled some details in and didn't really ask anything else just told me I would recieve info on my overpayment. A lot less questioned than I was gearing up for 
    • Well done. I hope that's a weight off your mind and that the payments are affordable for you. As you asked yourself earlier in your thread, could you tell us the sort of questions the man asked you and what information they asked for from you please? This will help future caggers with the same problem as you. HB

    • 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.

Freeholder on commercial property refusing to give me lease agreement following wife's death to sell her estate to pay off government debts etc

My wife passed away last year in August. She sold our house in 2020 for a commercial leasehold for £75k. I was under the impression it was the freehold she had bought and the flat above the commercial property.

Since her passing I have discovered we rented the flat and paid for leasehold for 125years on the shop below from the same landlord. This landlord wants me to forfeit the shop to him for nothing. She entrusted him with the sale of our house and the purchase of the leasehold. And instructed his solicitors to do so.

He keeps saying I owe him rent for the ground floor at £100 a month?! But the leasehold was paid in full. He was charging my wife this and I have only found out about it now.

I have put up the leasehold for sale and he is refusing to provide me with a copy of the lease agreement my late wife entrusted him to keep safe. Hess instructed the solicitors who dealt with it to refuse to speak to me and supply me with a copy. This has been going on for just over a year now.

He keeps sending out threats in emails. Has threatened my partner saying he has money and do what he likes basically and wanted her address. He broke into the property and changed the locks saying he had a possession order. But when police were involved he did not have any such thing and had to return the keys to me. His solicitors also advised police on this.

I have an interested party to purchase the leasehold in which they rang him. And he said they can buy the leasehold only if they buy the whole block of properties he has surrounding it as freeholder.

He is been extremely unreasonable and unfair. Has caused my current partners mental health to deteriorate. And he is aware of this but still persists to bully and harrass.

He has sent an email today saying he is now using agencies to check mine and my partner's current universal credit claims, debts etc and will find out where she lives and send them there.

He can try all this because we have nothing to hide. But that is a direct threat in writing of I am not mistaken?

I have rang to make an appointment with the local MP and informed the Legal ombudsman regarding the solicitors withholding documents.

I must add I do have full probate of my late wifes estate and can only clear any outstanding debts via the sale of her estate in which the freeholder knows all of this.

Hope somewhere can point us in the right direction because I don't know how much more we can take. TIA
