Re: DVLA

It's a complete myth that private sector employees are all competent and that public sector ones are not. I've had personal experience of both, and the main difference I can see is that if a private sector operation is run too badly, it tends to go out of business, whereas public sector organisations run badly just carry on business as usual. Indeed, I'd go so far as to say that in teh majority of cases, it's incompetence in the higher ups of any organistion (so signing off on new, but useless systems, or indulging in 'new broom' policies just to try to impress on all as to who is boss - et cetera, et cetera) that cause the majority of problems. If the system's broke or unfit for purpose, how is a mere minion supposed to make it work right?
