TTS: I would like to go on record and agree completely with all he is saying, and whilst on this subject i will highlight a case in point that i wrote about weeks ago. That is the red tape and bureaucracy in this country is absolutely scandalous , My son-in-law recently returned from NZ whilst over there he passed his petrol tanker 's driving licence test ,( which by the way meant he could drive double tanker's) On arriving back home he applied for a ( youv'e guessed it)) A TANKER DRIVER 'S JOB ! He produced all the relevant certificates and was then told he would have to take a further test at a cost of £ 2/3 thousand pounds ! Of which he could not at the time afford ,, NOW I BEG THE QUESTION WHY WAS HE CAPABLE OF DRIVING PETROL TANKER'S IN NEW ZEALAND ,BUT NOT HERE ???? BUT for all that he would have been only one but it was a start to helping the shortage ,this just goes to prove the hurdle's that a person has to jump through in this RED TAPE COUNTRY ,The moral is he now drive's HGV for Home Bargains and is paid more that a tanker driver ,,,
WORK THAT OUT !!!!!!!!!!!!gb
