You paid a higher amount so you got to drive the latest model for a year. I can buy a lower amount right now, but I only get to drive last year's model. Or I can pay a higher amount to drive the latest model again. That's life. I have a Wii. I didn't buy it when people queued up for it, but when the shop was selling them off for half the price. That's ...

Yes, GDPR applies: you are a data controller established/living in the UK or are offering services to people in the UK you fall under the material scope of the GDPR. The Art 2(2)(c) exemption for “purely personal or household activity” does not apply since you're offering the service to the public. You must consider GDPR compliance here. This is especially ...

No sane nation would try to control prices like that. You paid more but you have held the product since that time. It is generally accepted that goods released with a brand year decline in value as they age. Soe products have definite life spans and may not be able to be sold at any price after some point (would you like a set of 1995 Encyclopedias?) ...

It's not your bike. This is actually a good thing for you. If you've got a PCP deal, the finance company owns the bike and you are renting it from them for the duration of the contract. At the end of the contract, you have already agreed the price that it will be available for you to buy (£3500 if I read correctly). It's actually the finance company that is ...

I purchased a motorcycle in 2018. It was a new model. Towards the end of the year Honda launched yet a new version and to get rid of the 2018 stock dropped the price of of about 15% (£1000 from the original price). I bought the bike on a PCP finance and because of the price drop the bike is now worth less than the remaining amount. Can I ask for compensation?...

"Backlogged" has no legal status. Under usual contract terms, all intellectual property you generate as part of your employment belongs to your employer. But "intellectual property" is a category of rights, such as patents, trademarks and copyrights. An idea by itself is not intellectual property. "Wouldn't it be great if ..." cannot be owned by a company. ...

No, they are not obliged to take you back early As you say in your TL;DR you arranged 4 months leave and your employer no doubt made arrangements to deal with your absence. Now, you want to return early; they are not obliged to allow you to do so just as you would not be obliged to do so if they wanted you to cut your leave short. No doubt the current ...

I would argue that he wrote it in keeping with the saying "say what you mean, and mean what you say." This passage discusses the difficulty of inferring constitutional principles from old authorities that were written during a time when constitutional thinking had not yet arrived at the "modern" position. In this case, he is considering the evolution in ...

There is the matter of who the police would belief. A jailbird like Robinson, who has just assaulted a man and has to come up with an excuse to avoid going to jail again, and who had plenty of time to prep his young daughter? Probably not. See for example http://tommyrobinsonfacts.com . UK police will be very, very hesitant to arrest anyone because Tommy ...

There's no conflict. There's no statutory power or requirement for a police officer to request someone stop and explain what they're up to. You, I and police officers have the freedom to do that, and the person we're asking has the freedom to answer or walk away. The phrase "stop and account" is jargon for that kind of circumstance - it falls under the ...

Yes But then, so was imposing the £3 minimum This is a form of Resale Price Maintenance. Basically, you cannot impose or agree a minimum price with anyone for any reason. The photographers need to be free to charge whatever price they want even at a loss. You can charge for providing the service and that may make certain price points uneconomic but if a ...

Do I have grounds to ask on what grounds? Yes, although the issue of whether "employee has grounds" in and of itself has no relevance from a legal standpoint. For instance, the employee might sense or believe that he is being unjustifiably singled out for drug tests. Thus he has grounds --even if only subjective ones-- to inquire of the employer what ...

If there is no Ombudsman laid down by government regulation, and the company is not a voluntary member of an arbitration scheme, then your remedy for a complaint would be through the courts.

I do not have any specific knowledge of British law, but as a European industrialized country they are likely to be in line with general principles elsewhere. As a general rule, consumer protection laws try to mitigate an information deficit on the side of the consumer which is rooted in the better access to information and knowledge of the law on the side ...

Employers may be vicariously liable for the defamatory statements of employees when made in the scope of their employment, see Sade Garnett v. Remedi Seniorcare of Virginia, LLC which concludes that an employer is not liable outside of that relationship. Your description of the scenario is consistent with that possibility, but isn't strongly suggested, so I ...

Most anti-discrimination statutes make some allowance for "affirmative action" (though in legal terms it is often called "positive action" or "special measures"), which allows discrimination undertaken for the purpose of acheiving "substantive equality" between relevant classes of people. The rules for "positive action" in recruitment in the UK are set out ...
