Well, if you did, you were mistaken. There cannot be any drama that our government should be focussed upon. See what business they got up to today:
The Government is to scrap seven-year-old rules which meant that motorists who put national flags on their number plate faced a £60 fine. This ban also hit the Cross of St George, the Scottish saltire and Welsh dragon along with symbols such as CYM for Cymru or SCO for Scotland.
The use of national symbols on number plates has been banned since June 2001, when the regulations were forced through by the Government in the teeth of opposition from Tory, Liberal Democrat and nationalist MPs.As a result the only symbol permitted on number plates has been 12 yellow stars on a blue background.Since then there have been complaints from motorists who have been fined for the offence, although the number involved is not known.
Note that today is not the sum total of wasted time on this topic - " the regulations were forced through by the Government in the teeth of opposition from Tory, Liberal Democrat and nationalist MPs."
Isn't there something about 'those whom the Gods would destroy, they first make mad' ?
