I am with direct line. Phoned for help and they state I'm not covered for defence. Thought I read everything but it is really tucked away. Should be in bold print because more people want help with defence than to prosecute. You only prosecute if you are sure of a win.

blondegem, do not shout at us when we are trying to help. If you feel the need to shout at least get your spelling and grammar correct.

Water Butts

Just wondered if anyone had ever had a negative outcome to the garden after installing a water butt. For years the garden has been used to water from the down pipe going to the soakaway and all the garden benefitting evenly and then it is being captured in the water butt as encouraged by the 'green ...

This is what I would do. Ignore what has happened and attach chicken wire so that it is rises about 18" above the fence on your side. Leave sharp edge of wire at top. This works quite well. Adjust as necessary.

The reason behind the question Angelisle is more and more people are writing informally. Solicitors, surveyors, accountants etc., for example Dear Bebe. These letters could eventually be shown to a Judge or some other important person. My landlord writes kind regards. I am not happy with this or bes...

Best way of finding out is to type in ......... County Council Blue Badge. Mine states that even if the doctor is too vague in their replies you don't get one. It is up to you to make sure the doctor fills it in enough. I think the doctor is trying to pass the buck. They don't think you should have ...

I should have added that as regards blue badges maybe each council is different. Mine is very strict, just because your walking difficulties are due to being elderly it doesn't necessarily qualify, it has to be a 'known' condition. For example MS, SM, SHM. That is why I don't know how this 'woman' i...

She has called the ambulance 3 times. The first time she got a lift back the other 2 times she had to find her own way even though the hospital is 20 miles away. As for asking despair why she is so suspicious and resentful, if that is the way you see it, I cannot answer for her but the way I have be...

Maybe not rocks but the equivalent. Large garden pots with plants in them. Concrete ornaments. One in each hand. She could be entitled to DLA which means a reduction in her council tax. She has a blue badge which even the department says is easily obtainable, just needs a signature from doctor. She ...

I said heart condition because she doesn't have a broken leg. Maybe she says chest pains ie indigestion? The siren sounds to end of road and then just the blue lights. So not routine appointment. Paramedics say to her shouldn't we check you indoors first and she says no way get in the ambulance. Do ...

Ambulance Usage By a Time Waster

Does anyone know whether this is right or not. A woman of 77 calls the ambulance on 999 with bad heart. She has had her bath the day before. The next day she gets ready with coat on, key and purse at the ready and calls the ambulance. They arrive and she comes out the door and marches to the ambulan...
