The whole thing looks a bit salt-encrusted, to be honest....

Tadhg Tiogar, on 11 Feb 2018 - 9:54 PM, said:

As far as I understand it, this video is a tribute to the Arab horse. I've had the privilege of riding one or two years ago. They are quite unlike any other - even their ribcages have two fewer ribs than other breeds. Smaller than Thoroughbreds but with considerable power packed into a compact frame. Some people don't like 'em, because of high head and tail carriage and general excitability, but I just like the way they look.

 

Yep, I gathered that from the shitloads of pictures of arab horses!

 

TBH by posting that video I really only wanted to imply that Jon (alcyonecorporation) masturbates over pictures of horses with an arabic music soundtrack, because that makes as much sense as his absurd "hhhhhhhh" does :-D

2 and half months on from the incident that finished the Volvo, I finally have a claim reference number.

 

Even if I do get a pay out, I have no idea what I will do out of the other side.

 

Spoke too soon, current indications seem to show I'm about to be rolled over and fucked (again).

How? Is this one of those situations where it would have been cheaper just to bin the car and not say anything?

Their insurer states that they are claiming their builder left their gate open for the dog to escape, hence not the home owner's fault and if that is found in their opinion to be true, I can go and whistle Dixie for my claim.

 

If it'd have been the Laguna, it'd have been binned and forgotten by now, as it's the Volvo, I don't have the money to replace it and move on.

 

I'm also now into the Audi for just shy of £500 just keeping myself mobile. Farts.

Could you then possibly claim on the builders public liability insurance if that is the case?

I call bollocks to their insurer. It’s up to the other party to claim against the builder, not you. I’d be looking up the number for the insurance ombudsman if I were you.

Is it their home insurance or their pet insurance stating this?

I ask only because a colleague is in a similar situation, but from the other side - her fence blew down in high winds the other week; dog got out; dog got hit by a car; damage to car is apparently to be paid out from her pet insurance which contains a public liability component.

That does smack of B.S. to be honest - otherwise anyone could dodge responsibility by claiming random persons unknown opened the gate etc, therefore NOT MY FAULT PAL, SOZ.

The pet insurance claims the home contents insurance trumps their cover, the home contents are now checking the small print of the pet insurance, but because their insured claim that the builder left the gate open, there is a school of thought that would land it on the builder's insurance, and I might like to involve my insurance company so as to get my car repaired quicker.

I wondered if it might be heading to Brightwells auction house but it isn't showing on their website.  I would quite happily buy a Stanza but it would have to a lot nearer to your new house than your old one.
