No Minister

I KNEW IT, I JUST BLOODY KNEW IT!

This morning Swmbo decided to do the necessary to renew Her drivers licence a bit before time as we are going awol for a few weeks next week.

Down to District Council Office and handed in the eye check, the medicals and the LTSA forms. A very helpful lady did the job and it entailed “Cancelling” the old plastic card, issuing a paper temporary and keeping the old one. now that is the sole remaining Photo ID she has as we let Passports expire when the grubby buggers decided a five year renewal would generate more dosh.

Then it was to the bank to ensure funding for a wild ride and you guessed it the love of my life needed Photo ID. five minute transfer took a whole lot longer as a box needed ticking.

I kept thinking I bet the Gangs dont need this, in part I guess they have permanent Photo ID on file elsewhere.

  1. “..as we let Passports expire when the grubby buggers decided a five year renewal would generate more dosh.”
    Gee how long ago was that?
    6 years ago the length was increased to 10 years.

  2. Back in 2005 and cost $191.
    Now 10 years and cost $190. Maybe the old fella’s got a point?
