I leave you with a smile -
An elderly man visits the doctor for a checkup. "Mr Smith, you're in great shape", says the doctor. "How do you do it?". "Well" says Mr Smith. "I don't drink, I don't smoke, and the good Lord looks after me. For weeks now, every time I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, he turns the light on for me".
The doctor being concerned about this went into the waiting room to speak to Mrs Smith, his wife, and tell her about what her husband had said. "I don't think there is anything to worry about". She says, " And on the bright side, it does explain why the fridge has been leaking every night".
1. With effect from 14 April 2014 classic vehicle tax exemption has been moved forward by a year to 1 January 1974. This will mean that vehicles manufactured in 1973 will then be exempt from road tax - only a small concession but a move in the right direction!
2. In the past owners who have declared SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) on their vehicles have had to renew it annually - this has now changed and SORN declarations are open ended; in other words they won't cease until such time that you choose to tax (or scrap) the vehicle.
3. With effect from April 2015 the permitted speed for LGV Vehicles (over 7.5 tonnes) on roads where the National Speed limit applies will be raised from 40mph to 50 mph.
