and proving that is very much harder....

Maybe the UK needs to consider a law addition whereby it IS THE OWNER of any vehicle offending that bears a nonUK registration ?

Could provide a cash windfall for the Treasury....

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Write tell Boris quick quick. He's going to need every penny... euro... to pay for all the promises.



We all feel a bit annoyed when we get caught for doing something stupid. I overstayed my welcome by 11 or 12 minutes in a quiet Suffolk small town car park and the fine was 80 pounds!!!! I felt well and truly screwed! You got away lightly with 41 euros. Pay up then you can file and forget it. I'm still trying.

Yes Viv it seems the UK is milking anyone that can afford a car to the extreme.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

I would not be at all surprised if collecting the fines turned out to cost more than the fines amount to.

Who gets the money paid in fines. Does it go to the treasury or does it go to those collecting it. I ask because it turned out that HNS Trusts weren't keen on chasing foreign patients for payments due for treatments because the money went to the treasury, maybe it still does. Thus the Trusts bore the cost of raising the bill and then chasing the patient for the money while not getting any of what was collected.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Ray my ageing jalopy has a book value of about £200. Next time I'll tell them to keep it in full payment.

Ernest, I'm going to contradict your post. When I had my big op in 2012 Norwich & Norfolk Uni Hospital had a rottweiler whose job it was to allow no foreign patient to escape without paying. I had been in UK since 2004 but that year I had delayed my return for 5 weeks longer than the allowed 182 days so I could bring my grand daughter with me to visit her Dad. Short of putting a gun to my head she forced me to hand over my passport and credit card and even though my travel insurance had agreed to pay she tried to bill my credit card with £2k plus. Thankfully that was way over my SA credit limit. The travel insurance did pay them. And my NHS privileges were restored. Too sick to care or defend myself. Perhaps I just looked like 'low hanging fruit'. It happens every day in SA if you're white.

Regarding payment for medical care

When we were in Israel before we were allowed to join the Israeli health service, my then young daughter could not be discharged from hospital until we had paid the bill in full

Seems to me to be reasonable, of course there were charity hospitals mostly run by the religious groups, which is why my youngest son was born in the Arab town of Bethlehem

The NHS is not a charity

Some were recovering it and others were not. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-a7556156.html
