    • Several organisations are concerned about exploding messages and lack of transparency. I suspect it hasn't been by accident, this isn't how government business should be done. If the people involved were in the private sector, they'd likely be in trouble.   I've also read that when news of Sue Gray's enquiry came out, there was an order from on high to delete anything to do with parties from mobile phones. You'd hope the Met would be looking at that, also that they can retrieve deleted messages from the server or wherever.
    • In parallel, there needs to be a proper accounting for all the 'government business' carried out on these private phones, and all parties (sic) involved banned from public office, all agreements vetted by cross party commissions, and all funds involved clawed back immediately and held until the results of the commissions clear them .. or not, with all legitimate interactions properly logged into government systems.   In parallel with that there needs to be further investigation into any criminality occurring via those mechanisms, with proper justification for actions checked - not simple lack of evidence for criminality as an unlawful/unofficial mechanism was used and destroyed   Then perverting the course of justice and some sort of abuse of position charges for all as a minimum.   Johnsons 'guvernment running via 'dark web' and related mechanisms used by perverts and criminals to evade justice has to be stopped and punished
    • Thank you again, Bazza. That was the problem I was having yesterday,  no figures beyond July last year. I thought there might be some more recent ones that I'd missed.   Here's more on the ONS statement, from Full Fact.   Dan Wootton and David Davis make incorrect claims about Covid-19 deaths - Full Fact FULLFACT.ORG Data from the ONS shows that to the end of September 2021, 17,371 people died in England and Wales of Covid and had no pre-existing conditions.  
    • That still leaves the parties the Met isn't investigating though and the drinking culture in no10 though, doesn't it?   If they're not careful though, there will be accusations of no10 kicking the can down the road and possibly trying to influence the investigations.
    • Hi there. an update for you   1) independent surveyor report was sent to builder on 13 Dec.   2) builder only responded yesterday. They dispute the majority of the issues identified. Claiming for example: that we have influenced the expert witness surveyor, that we have caused some of the issues by undoing work, that that the surveyor is wrong,    3) through trading standards we gave them the month of nov to finish plus put things (known) right, at no point did they say a month was unreasonable, they were onsite for less than 10 days of nov,  early nov building control initially visited and highlighted issues, they claim building control have now signed off their work at the end of nov   4) building control visited last week at my request, there are still issues with their work, it has not been signed off and never was at the end of nov    4) builder now says there they didn’t have time to put known things right in nov (they are always contradicting themselves) and that they should be allowed to return to site  to fix these ‘minor snags’, the majority are not minor snags, they are building regulation contraventions    5) we have quotes from 3rd parties to do the work. We do not want the original builders back because:    a)quality of their workmanship has been called into question by ourselves, building control and a 3rd party surveyor    b) lack of trust in what they tell us - for example they’ve deviated from the plan, used different materials, refused to fix items saying nothing wrong and it’s how they always do it, refused to give deadlines, knowingly cut corners, have said work is signed off when it isn’t etc    c) their behaviour:  smoking weed on site, urinating next to my garden office, swearing, smoking, leaving the house with doors wide open and unlocked, leaving site unsafe with scaffold boards & materials lying across/over paths at end of day/week, all these things were raised with them verbally & in emails    d) they repeatedly said they hate working for us, they can’t wait to leave, none of them enjoy coming here etc   so, my question is.. do we have to allow them to return or can we say that we want a refund or for them to cover 3rd party costs?    im feeling that they have had enough opportunities to do the right thing and put things right, I’m also feeling that we aren’t being unreasonable by not wanting them back..   they say they can’t understand why we are rushing to get 3rd parties to finish the job and that the job is ‘live ‘ with them.   my feeling is that this job should have been finished in July (at no point have they provided a revised completion date despite us asking numerous times), they were given nov to finish & go, we’ve not heard from them over past 2 months so how could it still be live, and that we’ve spent 2 cold months living in a half finished house which doesn’t have heating completed, is damp & draughty, Ofcourse we want to get it finished asap! Any input would be appreciated, thank you.

Havent really had time to log my progress what with the holidays and all but..

Sent my S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) off to one Ms Judith Mucklow at Duet on 12 December 2006 recorded delivery. Received my statements on the 21 December albeit 3 consecutive monthly statements missing. Fired off a prelimenary letter requesting full payment for charges and so forth with consideration to the 3 missing statements...

" I calculate that you have taken £xxx.xx plus £xxx.xx which you have charged me in overdraft, service charges and interest for the sum which you have taken. Total £x,xxx.xx

I enclose a schedule of the charges which I am claiming with this letter.

Moreover, it seems that there are 3 consecutive statements missing pertaining to May 2003, July 2003 and August 2003. The charges relating to these missing statements have not been factored into the schedule of charges. I will however, consider this omission on receipt of your reply".

I gave them 14 days for a favourable reply..


Received a reply on 3rd January 2007 which read in the region of "Sorry you feel this way....we will do what we can to come to an amicable conclusion...., meanwhile I enclose details of our customer service department if you have further concerns on how we deal with complaints...blah, blah, blah".


So in my estimation, they have until 17 January 2007 for a 'favourable' reply.:?:

May I also mention thanks to Chetz for her help :)

Right, another update. Busy as hell. As I mentioned in my previous thread, Duet (Creation Financial Services Ltd) gave written notice that they were investigating and would reply within 15 days. So I fired off a reply stating that I would stick to my deadline and gave caution that I will file a court claim against them. They duly replied promptly offering a measly sum of £28 "without prejudice..." to settle the affair. I nearly split my sides laughing:rolleyes: . Anyway, I replied that I would only accept this as part payment and would pursue the outstanding amount in court if necessary and that time was still ticking, in not so many words.

So...No reply on deadline date, checked recorded delivery receipts with Royal Mail. It was received and signed for. Yesterday I filed with Money Claim Online. Wont bore you with particulars but adjusted standard template to suit my claim.

A bit apprehensive but knew it would go this far as I usually have crap luck.

However, this mcol was a bit tricky. Only 24 lines and no special characters. The ladies on the mcol helpline were very good though. Told me leave out any characters such as £ / ; % after I had trouble submitting the damn form.
