    • 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.

So this came in September but l dont normally use the make offer system so was not aware of it. 

The system they have brought is is automatic payments for these items. You cant proceed with the offer without giving the payment details and address details. They have said its because they have had seller complaints of buyers not paying quickly enough or paying at all and to provide a faster service for the buyer and seller as they can then list more items quicker. They claim to have listened to feed back regarding this and had no complaints re it. A quick google search says some people have said the same things as me re this. Also ldont know how accepting a offer on something means they cant list another item or even wait a few hours if necessary. 

My concerns are if on pay pal you have many cards they will take off which ever card is preferred. But if you want to use a different card then it makes a problem eg bank charges, payment fails or going over drawn. Also the seller has 48 hours to accept the offer so who says they dont wait 47 hours to accept to see if they get a better offer. You cant take advantage of cashback sites or bulk postage if your looking at more than 1 item. Also is this legal?

I know what it says. It is not May its will. 

I am just wondering if they have broke rules or laws and if they cause any issues come up due to this can ebay be held responsible.

I'm not aware of the specific legalities, although I would be surprised if they were blatantly doing something illegal in such a prominent way.

I can see this from the seller's side too, having come up against this issue many times over the years. As a seller, you can be conversing with someone over EBay messages, trading offers back and forth, finally accept an offer, only for the buyer to go completely quiet. I've long suspected buyers do this without having the means to actually pay, for example, maybe pay day is a week away, but they still want whatever item is for sale. The previous offer system allowed them to manipulate sellers like that, and it really wasn't fair. Once an offer is accepted, the buyer wasn't forced to complete, but the seller is forced to remove the item from sale.

You might say things have just swung too far in the opposite direction. I'm not making comment on that, merely that it was never fair, it just wasn't fare to the seller before.

I get that the seller would also have a bad time with this. I have done it myself but not deliberatly. It was a massive power cut and l was making the Sunday but it was late so hoping no reply till the next day.  

I know the easiest thing to do is avoid make offers but l dont thunk its fair to stop people who have never taken advantage of the system is being stopped from using a system and being able to use postage discounts etc.
