Unprecedented demand?

Tax discs are renewed annually so surely DVLA know exactly what demand there is for renewals in specific day by day detail. Factor in some probably very accurate data about how many cars are sold in the UK each month, which DVLA should also have, and they should have a very, very accurate extimate of the demand on a day by day basis.

Or did they not think to call on the decades of experience and data the organisation already holds? Oh right its a UK gov IT project so experience, knowledge and data have to take a back seat (if you're lucky) to expensive lunches, sexting random constituents and colourful icons.
