    aw well done.. happy you got the outcome u deserve, I am going through an appeal too. May I ask if yours was a paper base or telephone hearing. I have requested paper base.

    I have been informed that my appeal hearing has been allocated to Judge for the 29th December but apparently they can make a decision either before or after that date with it being paper base
