With regard to the so-called “emotive” subject of personal number plates: surely such egocentric and expensive follies can be dispensed with at a time when motoring costs are rising and cuts in public spending are of such extreme necessity.
Surely in the light of the recent bungling emanating from Swansea we should leave the so-called bureaucrats to implement the system that they are familiar with before we attempt to impose upon them further work, thereby creating total confusion and possible breakdown (nervous?) of the whole licensing structure and its servants.
We find it incomprehensible that the motoring fraternity, of which we are both members, can complain about severe rising costs of necessaries in order to enjoy and run a motor, whilst in the same breath propose added costs for a total unnecessary.
