I think Laz's question here is not "How can I avoid prosecution?" but rather "Can I bring a prosecution against the **** who tried to stitch me up?"

Yeah think everyone has missed Laz's point.

Are you sure you werent traumatised by the police visit Laz?

ok, so this is quite funny, but there is a serious point here. 4 hours before the visit I had been just released from hospital after a pretty traumatic few days where I was subjected to tests which were not for the faint hearted. I am still at the moment pretty ill, undergoing more tests, but on my release from the hossie, the doc had told me to try and avoid stressful situations.

magic...

ok so about 5 weeks ago I am in dundee doing some work. I was leaving to come home, and realise that i am almost out of diesel. i spin into the sainsburys and put in about 30 quids worth of diesel, go into the shop, pick up a wispa and a bottle of water and go to pay

'any fuel ?'
'yeah pump x'
'do you need a receipt'
'no'

puts in my pin number and goes back to my car to make the journey home.

fast forward to saturday afternoon, when two big coppers come to the door looking for me, in connection with theft of fuel from sainsburys in dundee on the date i was there. i immediately think back to that day. As luck would have it, i had just got a bank statement, so has a scan thru it. At this point he cautions me, and reads me the 'witness statement' of the shop employee who claims i came in, bought goods worth about 3 quid, paid with a 10 pound note, and when asked if i had fuel said 'no'.

This is clearly nonsense, as my statement shows a payment by debit card for the amount of 1.40. hmmm

its obvious what has happened here, i know a lot of people like me dont check the amount they are putting their pin number in for, and they havent charged me for the fuel. Clearly, i am happy to pay for it, even although partly it is there error.

what does piss me off though, is the witness statement which clearly claims that I deliberately set out not to pay. I am quite angry about that, and would be interested to here what your next move would be.

The cop says he will take my statement back to tayside police and they will decide what happens after that.

I have had an insignia 2.0 CDTi SE for the last year and 30,000 miles with no trouble at all. Would recomend it

As the man said insignia ftw!!

Or you could get an 18 month old 530d M-Sport with c.15k on the clock for about the same money.

The 530 would be worth a lot more in 2 or 3 years when you come to change it again as well and also look a lot better in the car park at work.

Stacks of space for the family, passes as pretty sporty whilst being professional looking for work, decent on fuel and goes like shit off a shovel.

Total no brainer for me but I guess if you've always aspired towards a vauxhall then an insignia it is.

Dont agree here. The new 5 series being the main reason.

actually the introduction of a new model affects residuals on older models much less than you might think.

Macs aren't that expensive when compared against equivalent PCs, problem is people look at the cheap PCs and compare those against the Mac.


true, but they also compare the performance, reliability, and build quality of macs against cheaper lower spec PC's

If you are willing to spend what you would on a mac on a custom built PC (or laptop), you will get a very nice piece of kit for your money that will have a similar build quality.

   has any serious endorsements   ....are their exact words.

you dont do you?

You have an old ban....that they won't even see if you had reqested a new driving licence?

Take then to the small claims court...very cheap and easy to do, and will really piss them off in time and money, even if you don't win!


https://www.moneyclaim.gov.uk/web/mcol/welcome

This is the Court Service's Internet based service for claimants and defendants. Use this simple, convenient and secure process to make or respond to a money claim on the internet. There is also a user guide so users can familiarize themselves with the site before proceeding with a claim.

you have absolutely no chance of winning this.

on the ch3000 website under the FAQ bit, it explains what you need to do if you have 'points' on your license. Of course you can argue that you dont have points, but the responsibility still lies with you to ensure that you meet the qualifying criteria when renting a car.

Wer oft schiesst, trifft endlich. (Sorry! English only.) 

This early twenty first century photograph is of the devotees of the Devilfish, a clandestine cult whose soul aim was to promote sales of  forthcoming books written by the man who was also known as The Ulliot. 

The two devotees seen here are high in the hierarchical structure and are performing a divination prior to the launch of the latest Devilfish book,
(ISBN: FML666)

The ritual they are performing is to bring good luck! The white ball in the foreground is moved around the four corners of the earth, on uneven ground, all movements of the ball are reported back to other cult members, many who never see the light of day.

The subtle movements of the ball will predict future book sales for the Devilfish. At this particular juncture, they can guarantee one sale, as part of a competition amongst other devotees.



catchy
