I’ve been look­ing for­ward to the Gov­ern­ment open­ing up the EU Road­wor­thi­ness Con­sul­ta­tion to the pub­lic for a very long time now. It’s an ex­tremely con­tentious is­sue that fills me with mixed emo­tions – on the one hand, I love the idea of be­ing given some­thing sweet from ‘the man’ (no longer be­ing tied to annual MoT test­ing). But on the other, there’s no deny­ing that there’s the po­ten­tial for an aw­ful lot of cars hit­ting the roads with­out be­ing tested.

It’s left me an­gry and dis­ap­pointed that it looks like the Gov­ern­ment ap­pears to be em­ploy­ing de­lay­ing tac­tics. It’s a shame, be­cause even if the Brexit vote is not the rea­son for this de­ci­sion, it’s clear there are con­cerns.

The mat­ter of old cars shouldn’t be a po­lit­i­cal one, but it would seem they’re not lis­ten­ing in London.
