          The sad thing about all of this is that it’s likely that we will end up suffering all through other people’s greed.

            Ben there are no other companies in a similar position. Motability have no composition they can’t fail it’s almost impossible. That is why their targets are customer satisfaction if they get high customer satisfaction they get a bonus and more money.

            I had a look at the graduates scheme they run, there is not one graduate with a degree in anything that would be useful to the business. There were geography degrees English etc not one had anything to do with cars or finance. This suggests to me that you don’t need very much business sense to be employed by the company.

              Pops until recently I would have totally agreed with you but what’s clear is that motability operations have been left to their own devices. The charity should have given clear guidance/rules to ensure there knew what was acceptable spending.

              The money they are spending is generated by us and they are allowed to do what they like with it. I have talked about what the workers get in pay and conditions but why do they need an HQ in London? Surely there are much cheaper areas of the country to set up an HQ plus they have a second office in Plymouth (I think).

              I am happy for motability operations to run the scheme but there must be someone looking after their spending and rules must be applied to ensure they are spending our money wisely.

                  Leaving motability to carry on as they are is not an option. As a monopoly Motability has been self auditing itself for many years. It is clear that this has failed, not for the day to day service that we receive which is very good, but for the costs being transferred to us the customers. It is clear that there are millions of pounds profit being generated but not used  for the benefit of its customers rather than for those who work within the company.

                  A limit of profit generated each year must be set with more of this money going on reduced APs and reducing the cost of automatics and more help with adaptations.

                      I am all for people getting a decent wage and decent conditions but to get private healthcare a final salary pension which is non contributory seems ridiculous. My daughter is a school teacher and pays 8% of her salary towards a pension, so even local council “gold plated” pension isn’t as good as Motability’s.

                      Anyone can go onto their site and look under vacancies to see the conditions being offered, they don’t advertise the wages which seems strange to me.

                          There is absolutely no doubt that motability do a good job, the question is “could it be better”. There is no doubt in my mind that the service we get is very good but could it be cheaper. Absolutely, the perks the workers get are second to none and I am not just talking about Directors all workers have medical insurance free final salary pensions etc etc etc.

                          motability operations have given £400000000 to motability charity this year so there is plenty of money being thrown in all directions that could be passed back to us in the form of cheaper APs more choice cheaper automatics etc etc etc.

                              Do electric cars have gearboxes?

                              If you’re getting into a fully electric car for the first time, you may be surprised to find that there isn’t a manual gearstick to change ratios. Drive one for the first time, and you might be even more surprised to find that, as the car accelerates and decelerates, it doesn’t automatically shift through gears. That’s because there are none.

                              Electric vehicles are unique in that they do not feature a multi-speed gearbox like conventional diesel or petrol vehicles. Instead, they get away with just a single gear. This is especially impressive considering how quick some electric vehicles can accelerate. The Tesla Model S P100D, for example, can do 0-60mph in just 2.4 seconds, making the family saloon faster than most supercars.

They have fully embraced the electrification revolution (I’m dangling the hook again Rapster lol) and they will reap many of the benefits that will come with it

                                    We tested 6 zero-emissions cars to measure range and efficiency.
                                    And we drove them until the battery ran completely out of charge.

                                    Take six of the best-selling electric cars in Italy, give each a full charge and go on a long mixed journey between the city, highway and the countryside until the batteries are completely empty.

                                      Even the infamous Tory whips won’t try to stop this Brexit rebellion

                                      Between now and 11 December reports on Theresa May’s chances of success and survival will contain almost casual asides about near-criminal behaviour in the House of Commons. Government whips – desperate to win the vote that endorses the prime minister’s Brexit deal – will be said to resort to bribery, bullying and blackmail. Some stories will be exaggerations. Others will be pure inventions – peddled by the whips themselves to enhance their reputation as the stormtroopers of parliamentary politics. Tales of female MPs reduced to tears in the tea room will help to obscure the inconvenient, though undeniable, fact that, as the Brexit crisis developed, the whips failed to fulfil their most important duty – the collection of intelligence, not the enforcement of discipline.

                                        Hyundai Kona Electric vs Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV vs Toyota C-HR

                                        Is the all-electric Hyundai Kona a better SUV buy than a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV or the hybrid Toyota C-HR?
                                        As emissions regulations become ever more stringent, car manufacturers are increasingly looking for ways to cut down their models’ CO2 outputs – or eradicate them altogether.

                                        This in turn means buyers who take the plunge have to fork out less money on their vehicles’ running costs. But if you’re looking to buy an Alternative Fuel Vehicle, what’s the best way to go?

                                              Brexit: Sam Gyimah says another referendum may be only option

                                              The minister who resigned over Theresa May’s Brexit strategy says another referendum may be the only option if MPs reject the deal.

                                              Science and universities minister Sam Gyimah quit after Mrs May pulled the UK out of the EU’s Galileo sat-nav system, following a row with Brussels.

                                              He said the decision showed the UK will be “hammered” in Brexit talks.

                                              Mr Gyimah is the 10th person to resign over Mrs May’s Brexit agreement. He said he intends to vote against it.

                                              BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said it was “another very dangerous moment” for the prime minister as Mrs May is not just losing another vote, but others may share Mr Gyimah’s concerns and also quit.

                                              MPs will vote on the Brexit agreement – which has already been agreed between the UK and EU – on 11 December. Labour, the Lib Dems, the SNP, the DUP and many Tory MPs have said they will vote against it.
