John Docker: This EU law could affect deliveries
They say there’s no fool like an old fool and the older I get the more foolish I seem to become. The other day I renewed my road tax on-line. It doesn’t quite seem the same does it ? Now you don’t even get a piece of paper for your money. Never mind, it gives all those speed cops out there something to do – electronically checking your number with the DVLA as you whiz past. I’d have thought they’ve quite enough on their number-plates already, but there you go, that’s progress for you. Now, where was I? Oh yes, on-line licence renewal. Much better than trolling along to the post office, done it before - easy-peasy, so why was it not accepting my reference number? It’s printed big enough even for my aging eyes to read. But after three attempts I was getting pretty miffed. Must be due to the new system I thought, why can’t they leave things alone these days? I fumed. Then daylight dawned. I was looking at last year’s application form. Definitely a senior moment!
