Quango's

So the new car tax/change of ownership is working as well as can be expected by any government body then.  mad

Sold a car privately, so tax is immediately cancelled.
Sent off log book with new owner details on it.
Swapped insurance to new vehicle.
Today get a letter from MID telling me I'm being taken to court for using an uninsured vehicle which isn't SORN (the old one)  mad
Tells me to either declare it off road or advise DVLA of change of ownership. It's been a week since it was sold so DVLA are still processing ownership.
So now if you sell privately I suppose we need to declare the vehicle SORN as well as cancelling insurance because some jobs worth is trying to boost his government backed bonus !!!

What was wrong with the old system?

This sounds like the start of a new crime wave and should be stamped on firmly !

I'm writing to my MP and canvassing his support for a mandatory 5 year sentence for the first offence

Talk about jumping the gun
Suppose it's designed to take work off our "hard working" police force, you know, driving around in a BMW looking for a driver doing something they don't like ...... Such as driving about minding their own business ...it's really stressful.

like that's ever going to happen, if you think taxing your car is going to be taxing try the new rural payments agency scheme, the previous scheme which has run reasonably well for the last 5 years has been replaced by one designed to really fry your brains.  Instead of taking across the "customer data" to the new system the rpa now want you to re-register and spend 30 minutes online and talking to experian to verify you exist and then link your account to your land agent, such fun.

Re: Quango's

Any time you see "new and improved" attached to anything you know its fecked.
As for government agencies you know that the only reasons they have to alter things is to make it more difficult for the average person to access. They hope that people will either make a mistake and they can deny payment or just give up trying to jump through the requisite hoops in the correct order. Either way they don't have to pay out or at worst because all the hoops haven't been jumped through pay only a fraction of the amount one should receive................. Bastards rant

I prefer unrefined as in not finished with, but Bob has had some serious work of late so perhaps he is evolving?

Re: Quango's

I'm certainly improving, walking is getting nearer to normal speed and Tuesdays review said I can drive and even go back to work on the 16th however I only drove the car twice on Wednesday and started getting a few 'clicks' from my sternum so I've got to take it easy for a while - back to having a chauffeur ...

BTW it appears that today is Christmas Day chez Taylor - hopefully they won't be expecting me to cook this year !


cool

#1506-02-2015 12:55:16

Re: Quango's

'Aint' it a bitch having to rely on being chauffeured about. If you're like me its not being driven about it's not being able to go where I want as and when I want  sad

As for the clicks you haven't over-wound the replacement clockwork pump they fitted have you?

Re: Quango's

Nah - my sternum was knitting back together OK but the little bit of driving has 'loosened' things off a tad  sad

Shit happens !
