No, I'm not looking to open the debate about personal plates generally. It's been done to death. I just want to share a plate I saw today, and get peoples' thoughts.
One of the themes that arose from the previous debate was that amongst those in favour, it was often regarded as a "finishing touch" on a top quality car. Well, I saw a top quality car (not one I would necessarily own - even if I could - but undeniably a very fine car). But rather than making the car even more special, the plate on it was, for me, a total ruination.
The car was a brand new Roll-Royce Phantom Drophead.
And the personal plate on it was............
In an instant, the illusion was, for me at least, shattered. Instead of thinking what an awesome and imposing piece of machinery the car was, all I could think was what a complete and utter arse the owner was.
