Of all the inane acts our government is guilty of, this one has to take the biscuit.
From this month, a new system of vehicle registration will be introduced to avoid car registrations starting with the unlucky number 13.
So for the first half of the year you will see 131 and for the last 6 months 132.
Either we are a nation of superstitious, credulous fools or our government enjoys finding new and esoteric ways to waste our public money.
Interestingly, this serves the dual purpose of pandering to the bullish motor industry… what’s not to love?
