    When did you order it?

    Try a broker, they will do all the hard work for you.  I’ve used these in the past and it worked out cheaper. They are great for policy seekers who aren’t ‘the norm’.  You can input your phone number on the site and they’ll call you back.#

    I spoke to Pentagon SEAT today and was informed that they will not be doing any reductions in the AP at this time.

    Does anyone know of any SEAT dealers doing discounts on the AP?  I’d consider a stock vehicle if I can get a discount on it.

    The want is big with me.  Getting in and out of it is quite another proposition though.  Fantastic car, and it’s great to see Toyota being brave and returning to manufacturing some great sports car in the GT86, Supra, and now this.

    Citroen DS is a great choice. The designer, Bertoni, was a sculptor as well as a car designer.

    His main adviser which he chose is Cummings,  a eugenicist.  Do you all not understand what that doctrine means for disabled people?  What sort of person would choose someone like that to recommend policies to him?

    ‘Thinning of the herd’ i.e removal of the weakest, is one of the main tenets of that doctrine and would fit in with the early government policy of ‘herd immunity’.  The eldest and sickest are the least productive in society and should ‘Take it on the chin.’

    The Holocaust did not start with the concentration camps, but with the mental, then physically disabled in 1930’s Germany.

    My phone assessment was supposed to be about 40 minutes long, but ended up lasting 2 hours.  I was very lucky that I had a nice ex nurse who understood a lot of what I was telling her.  I received my notification letter last week renewing my PIP for 3 years.

     

    So relieved.

    in reply to: Should London be quarantined? #110368

    Being a thick Londoner (no offence taken ) I’ve not witnessed any other thickos purposely not following the guidance since the lockdown other then on the tubes, but the mayor of London cut trains at peak times and still expected all the front line staff to get to work, remember the tube is the best way to get around London. I did see Ben neves and snowden packed over the weekend I doubt many were thick Londoners. Morons are everywhere sad to say even disabled folk going out in the sun in their cars. London was bound to be hit hard because London hospitals were the first to take cases from all over the south. plus the population in London is massive, with two of the biggest airports.

     

    50% of Tube staff are either sick or self-isolating.  No choice but to cut services.

    Those face masks are only any use if you have the virus.

     

     

    My one protects from the virus. It’s a FFP3 class respirator which stops airborne virus and is recommended by the World Health Organisation.

    That’s a free service in England, they don’t do it here.  Everyone gets free prescriptions here though.

    Went to collect my ‘script from the pharmacy yesterday morning and there was a queue of 50 people outside.  The pharmacy have started operating a 2 in 2 out system, so that there will not be close contact like when it is normally crammed.  Returned later in the day at 10 minutes before opening and the queue was now about 80 people.  My ‘script is just sitting there on the shelf but I cannot wait there for the amount of time it’ll take to get in.

    I’ve made my own hand sanitizer also.  I’ve got the World Health Organisation instructions for medical units worldwide to make their own.  Obviously it has to be made to scale, I didn’t fancy making 50 litres. 😉

     

    A friend of mine works as a professional in a private hospital and told me that as of last week they had locked down one ward with patients and 2 staff members have been sent home to self isolate.

    They said that they had been liasing with the NHS and were told the NHS will be in chaos if the expected numbers come to fruition.

    Britain has one of the lowest amount of hospital beds per head in the developed world.  China built loads of prefabricated hospitals overnight to be able to treat people.  Our ICU bed numbers are tiny compared to what is needed.

    Lexus UX Hybrid has a book price of £29k. The F Sport model is £33k.

    The CT Hybrid starts at £26k.

    The IS Hybrid starts at £33k

    The ES Hybrid Luxury Saloon starts from £35k

    As an ex Lexus owner I’d be really pleased if by some miracle they ended up on the scheme.

    Do most people tend to use RSM to deal with the whole claim or have anyone used an accident management company?  I know that most of them are rip-off merchants, but there are some that are good.

     

    My initial point was the fact that people have to wait from 4pm on a Saturday till 8am on Monday to get to speak to anyone.  What if I needed a suitable vehicle in between those times?  I did have somewhere I had to be today, but have had to cancel now as there is a possibility that the chassis might have been affected as the car didn’t feel quite right and am not prepared to take the risk.

     

    A friend of mine who had a non-fault accident contacted the other person’s insurance company and they had a suitable hire car for him delivered to his house 4 hours after the call ended.  If their own insured driver is at fault it makes good sense for them to deal direct with you and keep you happy as they have a handle on costs i.e. Not having to pay £3000 per week for car hire from a management company for while your car is being assessed and/or being repaired. His car was a Ford Kuga, his loan car was a BMW X3.  They were excellent at keeping him up to date about everything. Sometimes your own insurance company lag well behind service levels that you get from other parties.

     

    Does anyone have any incidents of claiming through RSM and whether they were any good or not?

    Just went out to the car and due to the back door being smashed in, the car is not waterproof and all the inside is wet.  Anyone got any ideas as to who I can get to help.

    It’s a pity that the R-Design Tech isn’t available in petrol on motability. It’s slightly cheaper than the diesel and is available to buy in the 1.5l and 2.0l variations.
