I leave you with a smile -
A pregnant lady was driving her car when she had a crash, she ended up in a coma and some months later woke and opened her eyes - she saw a man by the bed wearung a white coat and said, "Are you a Doctor?". He replied "Yes, you had a car crash and have been in a coma". She looked down and saw that she was no longer pregnant. "I was pregnant". And he said "Yes and you had twins, a boy and a girl". "Are they alright", she asked. "Yes they are now but they were not well and we had to have them Christened". "So that means they have names?". The doctor replied "Yes, but your brother visited and he named them". She said, "Oh no - he's not very bright - what is the little girls name"?". The doctor replied, "Denise", "Oh that's a very nice name". She said. "And what's the little boy's name". The doctor replied, "De nephew".
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.
