There's a private members bill going through parliament ostensibly to outlaw mini-motos being ridden illegally which in typical "sledge hammer to crack a walnut" manner will require all motor cycles to be registered and carry a number plate even if they kept in museums or only used on race tracks. So sorry, Valentino Rossi, but you can't bring your bike 'cos it hasn't got a number plate....stupid eh?:-Nooo

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

It has taken me about three years to date to get the DVLA to admit they do not know just how many vehicles I actually own, even though they are the ones that are supposed to have the complete database on record.

Additionally the Continuous Vehicle Licensing Department (the ones that supposedly 'work' on the SORN paperwork), actually have no details whatsoever on any of the vehicle that are currently offroad, even though this has been supplied to the DVLA on multiple occasions, (some are now coming up to their fourth year).

The computerisation of the system, that was supposed to make the manual operatives redundant appears to have failed.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

It makes me wonder where all the taxes ACTUALLY go, especially when things dissapear on their computer systems and then they blame the applicant/customer/mug who pays them the money....:confused
