It’s laughable isn’t it?


Some years ago (but long after the internet became very very useable), I had to do quarterly returns for what amounted to over a million pounds per annum government funding.  It would take me two full days of work, and then the site would crash.  Happened every time.  I used to wonder why the government couldn’t find anyone who could provide a decent website when just about every small company could.

My driving licence arrived today.  So it took 9 days from my application.  I recall Plumb sending his off by post at the same time.  Wonder if he’s got his yet?

I expect you will Plumb... it just seems doing it online is quicker and from a point of filling in the questionnaire it's a lot easier than the paper forms.

Mine only took about a week too - by post we know of old that the first thing they do is scan whatever you have sent them before anyone can even look at it to do whatever needs to be done - and thereafter there's handwriting to mis-decipher.


No such difficulties online!
