      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. If you could have any car

    I think someone on here asked much the same question a couple of years ago but there was a £100,000 limit! My choice was an American 50s Ford pickup, a 65/66 Mustang AND a 70s Ranchero! You could get a half decent one of each of them for about 20 grand a piece. The rest of the 40 grand would be spent on maintenance and petrol!!! New, fast cars do absolutely NOTHING for me! What's the point in a car that can do 185mph in a country where the speed limit is 70?
  2. Things I Don't Like

    Christmas decorations up in November!!! When did it become socially acceptable to put up decorations in second week of November? Bah! Humbug!
  3. Weird Situation

    Short answer. In the link I gave you, read the first paragraph and the 3 bullet points. AFAIK none of the criteria are met, therefore it is illegal to withhold some of your wages. I would advise you to contact ACAS and discuss it with them. What you choose to do after that is up to you and you alone. You and I both know he can't fire you for this incident but could quite easily make you redundant due to 'a downturn in business' and hire a new driver the week after. Would he do this? I don't know. If you did carry on working for him and, God forbid, something else happened, would he start taking even more money off you? Speak to ACAS 😉
  4. Our Very Own Yplac Thread..

    According to the article he was fined because "Your vehicle was not parked completely within a marked bay." so technically they were right, morally.........?
  5. Paperless 'Tax Disc' Not Working?

    I just wonder if people are 'forgetting' to buy it for a couple of months and saving themselves a few quid?
  6. Weird Situation

    I agree, it's a totally unrealistic quote BUT that's not the issue here. Unless his contract specifically mentions paying for damages the OP shouldn't be paying for it!
  7. Weird Situation

    Oops! Been there, done that! Not a nice feeling BUT walls can be rebuilt, people can't Depending on your contract your employer CAN'T withhold wages you haven't agreed to. Ask me how I know! Have a look at the ACAS website, lots of the right advice there, not just folks opinions. http://m.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=4125
  8. The government said it would save about £10million a year, but it seems it LOST £107million last year! I don't know how that compares to years before the scrapping of the disc ie they could have been losing £120million, but it's not looking good! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42009111

    Click the 3 little dots in the top right hand corner of the story you're not interested in and click on the link that applies in the choices you are given ie Not interested in stories about Vauxhall 😉 You're newsfeed will evolve into stories you want to read.......... hopefully 😁

    .......the, what looks like, 12 year old boy in the queue in front of you in the pub gets served without even being ID'd!!!

    People using a trolley and going through the 'Baskets Only' till!
  12. One Of Stoney's Colleagues?

    Saw another 999 plate in another carpark today! Must be ganging up on us! I was going to wheel around for a pic to add to my collection but Mrs Turvey gave me 'that' look and said something about being "a sad git!" or words to that effect, so I left it.
