Time for an update. Having first hinted at overt homosexuality ("Do you live in Bristol and drive a canary yellow Audi TT?") I have just received the following email from a very helpful chap at Avon and Somerset Police:

"Thank you for your patience. I think I have got to the bottom of what has taken place and I must apologise for the inconvenience that has caused you.

There has indeed been a mix-up and your licence has been incorrectly endorsed. I have emailed the Fixed Penalty Office at Southend to contact DVLA to remove them from your record. I do not have any timescale for this but I have asked that I am informed when it is done, so I can let you know.

I understand that your insurance is up for renewal (if not already passed). If this has caused any issues with your insurance company, then please pass my details or have them contact me directly so that I can clarify the situation for them.

Again my apologies for the inconvenience caused
."

As soon as this landed on his desk he was on it straight away, but it took me nearly three weeks of being passed from pillar to post before it got to the right person. Now we just have to see how long it takes the DVLA (the traditional baseline benchmark of bureaucratic rigor mortis) to pull their finger out...

All my food only eat vegetables. So, I'm an indirect vegetarian :cool:

All problems have a solution.
You just need to figure it out :)

Tesco? :shock: This is Harrogate! It would have to be Waitrose reward points, or preferably a voucher for Fortnum & Mason. :D

How dare you! :shock: You must be thinking of somewhere that sounds similar, but with poor people. Like Harrow.
