If I wanted to enquire about getting my windows replaced in a B listed building from sash wooden to something more energy efficient, how would I go about challenging it?

You'd need to contact Historic Scotland and the local council planning dept and plead your case. Precedent would be useful, for example has someone else done it? Failing which you might need to look at sticking with the existing timber type, but utilising a modern slimline double glazed unit within it. Expensive though.

Just tell the council that you are a one legged, cross dressing, gender neutral asylum seeker and they will probably have you sorted out within a week free gratis.

😂 what a bunch of humourless fannies..

You know those discussions you have with your other half over purchases/holidays/etc, where you do every possible bit of research, and produce a plan that ticks every box while costing as little as possible, but they just say "Naw, because I say so"?

That was my experience dealing with Glasgow City Council and Historic Scotland. I also consulted a few mates who are architects and property lawyers, and their advice was "You'll end up spending the difference on legal fees whether you win or not".

If your friend is from Fife she's a good ref and a nice person! I think the refs doing international games get looked after quite well.

She is.

I’ve been given a smart parking fine. They’ve claimed I was in a car park for half an hour and didn’t pay for a ticket - which is a lie, I drove in to pick up my gf and then immediately left. Anyway, I don’t want to pay it. Has anyone here been given a smart parking fine and refused to pay it? Had a look at what big Martin Lewis has to say about it and he’s basically said don’t pay it, so I guess my mind is pretty much made up but would be good to get some experiences from folk.

YAAAAAAS!

If it wasn't issued by the council, ignore.

The key part being ignore. Do not acknowledge, do not appeal, do not discuss. Every letter directly into the bin including the threats of bailiffs and all that shite.

If it's the council you will struggle to get out of it, unless the pictures of you entering and leaving are time stamped.

If it's a private company ignore.

Is it not a case of being charged in 30-minute chunks, i.e. if you're there for 31 minutes you get charged for the full hour; in your case you were in and out in a minute with your girlfriend (she's probably used to it) so that's why they're quoting half an hour?

If you pay the princely sum of £1 p/m or £10 anally (cos Div literally shites money now) you can change it once a month. 

Edit : that money makes the site run advert free which is more than worth it. Plus you can read certain posters PM's.

Consider me mind blown, I had no idea people were buying skins on the PnB.com 

Aye that's a good idea because I would absolutely hate to start afresh with the reputation I've earned... 

I might just need to put a disclaimer on my profile page that I don't actually like Stormzy instead. Job done.

Why is he your username or have you gone off him?

There is a workaround and for £2 I am willing to share it with you.

Gone off him. Made the account a long time ago when he was an up and coming grime artist but now he does music with Little Mix and is pretty much out the scene so to speak, my favourite artist and him are currently dissing each other and I firmly disagree with his political opinions he has expressed well after I chose that as a username 😂

Fair enough, hope Mr Allis trick helps you change your user to Ed Sheeran :blink:
