    I don’t have a photo, but I was shown a picture of an Aston Martin in Hoylake on the Wirral.

    It was outside the home owned my Mrs Craig, who has a son called Daniel.

    Reg was OO07 DCR.

    Coincidence?

    Saw this in Hornchurch today. If you stand back 400 yards and squint, you should be able to make out what it is supposed to say. :rolleyes:

    Like I say, if you have to illegally alter the spacing and add "full stops" to make it read halfway what you want, it's a complete and utter ****ing waste of time and money.

    Plus, if a trader has enough money to waste some on personal plates, you know they're charging too much.

    What if the trader 'wastes' money on a new van when an old van will do the same job? Or a new mobile when an old one will still make and take calls? Or new boots before the old ones have worn out?

    There is some benefit in replacing those items, except the mobile. However, mobiles do so much more than make and take calls these days.

    There is absolutely no benefit in having private plates. They won't make the tradesperson work better, faster, smarter or harder.

    Plus, they're ****ing pompous.
