Re: Walking boots - warranty claim query

It's a forum. I asked for opinions, which we then discussed. Yes, but normally I'm able to see the point. Were you hoping that Keen would read the forum and change their policy? Did you want someone to agree your test was better than theirs? What difference did you think it would make if everyone d...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

With all three of my horses out of the running, I thought I might have a quid on Chuka. He's been in the same party of nearly a week so must be about ready for another and I'm sure there's a way for him to get on the ballot.

Re: Cycle to work scheme - £1000 limit is no more

Cycling UK's Matt Mallinder praised the decision, but wants the scheme extending to those out of work such as the elderly and the disabled... It also needs extending to those on low pay, I worked for an employer who was all set to introduce it till they were told they couldn't offer it to the lowes...

Re: C2W new Guidlines

My understandng at the moment is that "FCA approved" is the key to it all with the provider service having to be in effect a licensed credit broker - AFAIK CycleScheme/Cycle2Work and Halfords are not - in order to supply bikes over the current £1,000 voucher value. Rob Halfords were prett...

Re: Walking boots - warranty claim query

You may want to re-read what I wrote. I am, and enjoying it very much, can't wait for the book. I'll take it that you understand what I said now :D I think I've got it about right. The gist is you think your test is better than theirs, but they don't care and it's up to them. Followed by pages and ...

Re: Walking boots - warranty claim query

I'd draw my Learned Friend's attention to my previous point: I think the point was that I had already provided more than convincing evidence of their boots' failure. Obviously not in their opinion. Quote Which all you like, they were not in any way attempting to deny you your consumer rights, they ...

It’s a grieving fathers reaction to the loss of his son. Your crass lack of understanding is the only silly thing on this thread, and that’s putting it mildly.

Re: Walking boots - warranty claim query

Evidently not, but they have simply ceased communicating, which is disappointing. It's what I'd expect a business to do, they've given you the options, they've rejected your alternative, if they've decided not to change their position any further dialogue would be a waste of resource. Unless they s...

Re: Walking boots - warranty claim query

They haven't in any way restricted you consumer rights, you can send them back. They've said that you can't have they? What they've done is offer you an alternative, it's up to you to accept or reject that, but it's entirely up to them to accept or reject anything else. They're not offering the opti...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

So how are my horses doing? Two never even got to the starting gate :roll: Andrea Leadsom is currently third favourite behind Johnson and Hunt and ahead of Gove, odds shortened to 9/1 Liddington isn't standing.[/quote] Neither is Mordaunt, hence the comment that two didn't make it to the starting g...

Re: Even Corbyn supporting MPs criticising him now

Delegitimising? It's his own members of Parliament who are questioning him on his performance. Whether by design or in error, you have taken that out of context. Here is the LSE report which you may like to consider. http://www.lse.ac.uk/media-and-communications/research/research-projects/represent...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Andrea Leadsom 12/1 get that while you can, I don't think the odds have caught up with the advantage her resignation could make. Penny Mordaunt 20/1 bit unlikely I know, but IMO there's still more chance of it than the odds suggest David Lidington 33/1 even more of an outsider and a remainer to boo...
