For more than a decade I have been campaigning to rid ourselves of the no longer needed tax disc – or Road Fund Licence for those of a Certain Age. And for just as many years I have been presented with a plethora of arguments why this cannot be done under any circumstances.

To me it was so simple; if we can tell whether a vehicle is insured then we can tell whether it has a tax disc. Simples! I guess my love of and enthusiasm for matters technology sometimes gets me into trouble.

So I shall be listening to George Gideon Oliver Osborne MP with much interest this morning.
