Rest assured If the gov wanted rid of all three clauses it would have happened yesterday.

The gov got rid of the 'any driver when not working' clause because of pressure from the women/rape/etc groups, who have been fed misleading nonsense from sad elements of the trade.

Let's face facts all the anti Dereg bill stuff is about the cross border issue, and if they had stuck to that then they would have had got the support of good old me, for what that's worth.

But Instead the idiots blurred matters with lies linking it to the safety issue.

Now 10s of 1000s of ph drivers will be out of pocket, having to continue buying second cars for their partners.

But hey who gives a f*** about them, as long as the spivs get their way.


Taxi drivers have to do that in a lot cases anyway, there's always public transport for the spouse so I don't see the problem

You would if you lived here. Buses to the villages are almost none existent any more. So have been replaced by demand responsive transport solutions whereby the passenger has to book a seat on the transport the day before they need it. If the transport is full they can't travel.

No but it means that they will still have to run more than one car. Rural public transport is disappearing at an alarming rate and everyone in rural locations are suffering.

They chopped her head off, and, your point? My point is these vehicles are work horses not family cars so I don't see the problem.

They could if they got themselves a licence and lets be honest a licence is cheaper than another car. If they was the spouse of milkman would they want to drive that. Ffs it's not that inconvenient you can get a little run around for a few hundred quid, the problem and serious cost only occurs if the spouse wants a bigger, better and more expensive vehicle.

What do other spouses do when their partner doesn't have a licensed vehicle?

Then get a family car. If their hubby was the undertaker, would they use the hearse to go to ASDA?
