The Daily Mail?  Is that the best source that you can find, Rolymo?  As before , predictions of doom are unfounded, but, for some, the glass will always be half empty.

 If the Daily Mail happens to be the only source then so be it. At least it comes as a press release from the Ministry of Transport with a traceable element of certainty concerning its origin not like your "Ostrich atitude of  :- Don't worry everything is going to be all right ,trust me ,i'm a lawyer !!   The RAC, AA ,FBHVC don't keep us informed until it is too late so a certain amount of prophesy  has to be involved based on previous experience.  As for the glass only being half full , I sincerely hope that the EU goes down the drain with the residue remaining in the glass !

Incidentaly, does one get paid  bonus for spreading this" false sense of security" about the intentions of the EU? or is it a personal crusade ?      I believe you have been taken up on this point by  a previous poster ?  ( Maybe your cover is blown ! )

I would suggest that the personal crusade here may be yours, whoever you might be.   You seem to take a strange delight in spreading alarmist but mostly duff information, based on an apparent misreading of extant or proposed rules, or perhaps an error in understanding of how the law works in practice, or how legislative changes are made at EU and at national level.   I have wondered if you might have some axe to grind, but I assume not, and it may well be that you have just convinced yourself that the sky is falling, and feel the need to share this mIstaken view with others.    To that view, I offer a corrective, and others can decide which view they prefer.  

I have no axe to grind, and simply think that people should apply critical reasoning to tabloid scare stories, and, if need be, read and, importantly, understand the documents that are said to give rise to the impending downfall of civilisation as we know it.    It so happens that I have to read, understand, and explain EU legislation on a pretty much weekly basis as part of my job; and so, if I can offer fellow old car enthusiasts a perspective based on practical experience of the interpretation of legal rules, as opposed to one based on tabloid shock horror stories, or well meant but ill informed hobbyist websites, I do. 

I also manage to do so using my real name, and without imputing venal motives to others whilst hiding behind a pseudonym.  As for the Daily Mail as a source, well, even a broken clock is right twice a day, I suppose, but I am not sure that tthe Mail achieves such a good success rate.
