    Can you please give me some relevant cases and why they are relevant for the following scenario:

    John is an IT technician. He posts an advert advertising his services. Dave contacts him and says he needs work doing but it needs to be complete before the 5th of November. John agrees and they both sign a contract (agreed price if £50,000).
    HOWEVER. John now knows he won't be able to complete his work on time. He asks Dave to pay additional £30,000 so he can bring in another member of staff in order to complete the work on time. Dave agrees, as if it's not complete on time he will lose an important client.
    Upon completion, Dave refuses to pay the extra £30,000. Can John get that £30,000?
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
