Thank you Costs Lawyer whoever and wherever you are. I think a posting to all residents in Edgware would be a good point to start with. I'll be emailing everyone on my distribution list.

I know a neighbour in this borough who has the same ideas! I think once he reads all the posts, he may let things be and not bother about stupid wheelie bins. Hope the message gets around!

Mate... smell his own bin! Yeah sure he does... every Monday morning he's practically glued to his bin when we the binmen pick it up and drop it off. He doesn't even let the bin stay still in the alleyway for a second, just drags it back to the back of his garden. Oh we do have a laugh back at the depot when we finish our shifts!!!!!!! Its so funny but there you go!

Oh the Mrs does the same too, standing and befriending me and my colleagues next to the bin truck: I take it as a perks of the job, getting chatted up now by my girlfriend waiting on the street. What a crazy bunch of people and to top it all, the people next door don't even have any bins now (at least a year or so I think). What's going on!

I was passing by last week and saw the kids putting the bin out just when the bin man was passing with their lorry, doing so I assume because the kid's parents were too busy doing other things and almost missed the bin lorry, ha, ha, ha. Or may be they are party to the easement and so now it takes the mum, dad and kids to all be party to the easement too. ha, ha, ha again.

I've been reading all these comments and to me it seems Suleman, to put if in a proverbial sense, took a big shovel and dug a big hole about 10 feet deep, 6 feet long and 2 feet wide for Ali to fall into but the whole thing back fired and Suleman himself has fallen into his own grave and is now slowly getting buried by his own dirt! What a palaver, and all over a wheelie bin! Suleman you are a right old bastard who should have weighed up all your options first before taking legal action over a wheelie bin and an alleyway which I think you don't even have exclusive ownership of! Signing out: The Grave Digger!

Seems a case of where people who intent to do harm to others, destroy themselves in the bargain too.

Here's the story below: Suleman is the frog and Ali is the mouse but decide for yourself:-

THE FROG AND THE MOUSE (from the medieval Latin fable by Ademar)

A mouse asked a frog to help her get across the river. The frog tied the mouse's front leg to her own back leg using a piece of string and they swam out to the middle of the stream. The frog then turned traitor and plunged down into the water, dragging the mouse along with her. The mouse's dead body floated up to the surface and was drifting along when a kite flew by and noticed something he could snatch. When he grabbed the mouse he also carried off her friend the frog. Thus the treacherous frog who had betrayed the mouse's life was likewise killed and eaten.
For people who do harm to others and destroy themselves in the bargain.

All this over a wheelie bin. This sort of legal action should stay in the US, we don't need this sort of thing happening here.

Absolutely crazy story, I moved to Germany because of stupidly like this in the UK, and haven't seen anything like this over here. If someone has an issue they normally just move the bin themselves or will have an neighbourly conversation about it, not take someone to court? What happened to the judges sensibility? Counter sue on their car blocking your access rights.. Ridiculous.

Hi Ex Edgware resident... "counter sue on their car blocking your access rights.." Yes I think that is a good point. I am a professional chauffeur and used to drive a Mercedes in and out of a back alleyway with a right of way however the car was so huge, it almost touched both walls of the neighbours houses! One neighbour got so fed up with this, they counter sued because of they could not get their wheelie bin out whenever I was driving in or out of the alleyway at the same time! I think Suleman should be a little careful with his motor, assuming Ali hasn't counter sued already!

Mr. Suleman, you are an embarassment. You are a grown man behaving like a playground bully. Your wife and children must be so proud of you.

Hello Mr Ali, your best bet is to lobby all MPs in Parliament and send each and everyone of them a personal email over such a rubbish (pardon the pun) and stupid law suit over a wheelie bin. You can get a list of all the 647 or so MP's and their email addresses from the following link:-

http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-office...

Hope this helps.

Mr Parliament.

We'll chat tomorrow and if you haven't got the time to email all the MP's, let me or the Barnet Wheelie Bin Association know (just drop a note on this forum) or chat with the member tomorrow and we'll email the MP's for you anonymously too if you wish. Night, Night Mr Parliament.

Hello everyone, I'm a neighbour but wish to remain anonymous and thank someone for pointing this forum out to me. Here is my posting... I heard Ali was being accused of being a little b*stard for putting up signs in his alleyway and taking the Claimant to Court, not letting them leave their bins in the alleyway! That must be a first! I am a bit confused as I thought Ali was the Defendant? If so, wouldn't the Claimant be the one taking Ali to Court? I think this is a case of the fox and sour grapes and now Ali is being blamed for the plight the Claimants find themselves in, obviously their "legal" scam must have backfired and they are now standing in the street with their bins being emptied. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Mr Ali knocked on my door yesterday and told me Lyons Davidson's Bill of Costs now stands at almost THIRTY SEVEN GRAND!!!!!!! WHOOPEE!!! Lets put that into context... over a wheelie bin with no damages or losses recovered by the Claimants and with enough clearance of almost a feet for a vehicle to pass by the wheelie bin without it causing any obstruction! The question then is did Lyons Davidson have its finger in its arse or more likely concoct this figure to put the frighteners on Mr Ali, I think more the latter! I advised Mr Ali to counter sue in Court for damages the fact the Claimants are being "disingenuous" and dishonest. Let a judge can settle the matter once and for all.
