The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: Mumsnet Thread - Food Safety Advice

...shades is broadly right here.

You should definitely be eligible for a claim against dpd, which is the way to go. I would instigate that.

As for the rest, it depends on terms and conditions (theirs and yours). If they sent you the goods without liability on your part, you are not necessarily financially responsible in any regard.

I would instigate the claim with dpd, and then pass on the return from that. Not necessarily refund the customer (I would consider that an unnecessary goodwill gesture, where you don't want to retain the customer). Morally that's fair, and is a defensible position in the event of further complaint

Not sure why but thought this might as well go in the mumnet thread seeing as it's a bit of an AIBU type thing.

We occasionally do some tradework for a company. They sent us some high value goods to be printed which we did and sent back. Our courier (DPD) has lost one of the boxes. Originally I said I'd stand it as it seemed the right thing to do but he's being an utter arse about it. As we don't actually own the goods do I legally have to stump up? Not fussed if no further trading with these guys.

They know perfectly well what they are doing. They are a rogue government, prospering from dirty money, and the public purse. They don't want to risk scrutiny from international partners, so better not have any. Same game. While they are looking at things like that, they aren't looking at other things.

As they have done with their captive, cowed, and impotent population.

Your periodic reminder that a Treaty between one sovereign nation and a group of sovereign nations is a legally-enforceable agreement with consequences.

"When I put to [Brandon] Lewis the claim that the UK knowingly agreed to GB-NI checks, he said the NIP was "a policy document as much as anything else"

Frost echoed this, saying it had "quite a lot of loose ends & open ended provisions for subsequent negotiation"

I really hope they don't have the f*cking ball.

I like the look of this Italian striker.  Well, the look of his name. Has deadlegs inspired some nominative determinism?

I mean. "Immobile".

Belgium will put the ball out of play in the 10th min of their next game in tribute to Christian Eriksen.


Me neither.
