  1. Indeed Dave, This is now causing some worry. ''Long Lex'' has to produce his licence for his driving job ever six months. You've guessed it, they have asked for it today and he has a month to produce it or they will stop him driving his little 3 1/2 ton truck. He's going to be on the phone a lot I think. Now there are no more local offices to deal with this sort of thing, he and you are in the hands of Swansea, not good Lex
  2. Great idea Thanks for that Topcat !!
  3. Many thanks folks. The lack of help from the DVLA is a nightmare. All local offices have been closed and Swansea is as much use as a chocolate teapot
  4. All good information folks. CAG to the rescue again !!! Many, many thanks for your time and trouble Lex
  5. My son is applying for his provisional HGV for work, new system. We are not getting any help from the DVLA, no surprises there then. A couple of questions 1/ They want his full car license, do they want both paper and plastic. 2/ They ask if he has any offenses, he has a couple from 8 years ago, does he have to declare these or are they SB even though they still show on his paper license. The so called 'guide' is not clear. Many thanks if you can help Lex
  6. Posted on Facebook today :- Dear all, 'Radical Spirit Radio' will be doing a special show tonight, to talk about ATOS and the national demos today. If anybody is attending/speaking at one of the demos, and you'd like to come on and talk to us about it, please let me or Eddy know. We realise it is short notice, (I was planning on attending a protest myself today, but for one reason and another, I can’t now). Instead, we thought it was a good opportunity to get some awareness-raising done. The show will begin at 8pm, and it would be easier (although not essential) if you could take part via skype. Any help you could give us at this late stage, would be greatly appreciated. Please share this if you can, because we don't have long to put it all together. Thanks very much. Helen Sims and Eddy Wright Radical Spirit Radio If you want to take part, contact Marie Pace on the Facebook group :- https://www.facebook.com/groups/236931403038408/683852935012917/?notif_t=group_activity Lex

  12. A sad and final update for my friends and supporters here, My dear old Mum passed away in the early hours of this morning. She was in Hospital and had complcations with her Kidneys and Lungs. Just old age catching up. I'll just have to keep my eye's on my Dad now, 60+ years is a long time to spend with the one person. Many, many thanks for your help and support over the past couple of years. Lex
  13. The second wettest summer on record has blighted UK harvests and will lead to food price rises, farmers and retailers have warned. Wheat yields in England are down by almost 15% on the five-year average, the National Farmers' Union (NFU) reported, with some areas in the west of England suffering worst from the summer rain. The world price of grain has already been rising in recent months following a heatwave in Russia and the worst drought in 50 years in the US, which destroyed 45% of corn and 35% of the soya bean crop.
