I think the following might be of interest to members..............
To-day 8th June I attempted to order a Gerber Exchange-a-Blade saw from Attleborough Accessories who in the past I have used and who regularly send be their catalogue.
When ordering I was asked for my date of birth .... AS THAT SAW YOU ARE ORDERING MIGHT BR CONSIDERED AS A KNIFE ..........
I stated that I was 64 years of age and that a saw was not a knife and that I had no intention of giving them my date of birth. They stated that they had been advised that that they needed my date of birth...... TO COVER THEMSELVES.
I stated that I could easily give them a false/incorrect date of birth but had no intention of doing so. I asked where in Law they had authority to require my date of birth. No answer.
To cut a long story short I asked that my particulars be removed from their data base and I will no longer give them my support.
Over to you chaps for comment....and remember big brother is watching.[/b]
