    Fine here.

    This happened a few weeks ago, was very area dependent, some links had gone down I think.

    Huh - reckon the DVLA Medical Branch are on strike today as well, was trying to get through to them by phone all afternoon after receiving a letter at lunchtime telling me that as they haven't received my medical questionnaire sent to me on 22nd November last, unless I send it back pdq, my licence will be completely revoked on 3rd February. Fair enough you may think, however ........

    Enclosed with it is a photocopy of one page of the medical questionnaire covered in my handwritten replies which I had filled in, returned to them and they RECEIVED on 22 November. I can prove they had it then because that was the day they told me when I rang in December to chase it up, that they faxed the DSA to arrange an eyesight test to prove I can distinguish a barn door at 20 paces. (sorry, that I can read a no. plate at 20 metres .....)

    However, I observe that I have completely omitted to answer one of the questions on that page of the form, but I do not know in what manner they now wish me to indicate the correct answer to them, so need to speak to them - soon!

    Anyone up for a booze up in a brewery?
