    Come - that is just because they are busy getting all the applications and variations processed and out to the FEO's to ensure a speedy turnaround.....

    What are you complaining about eh ?

    Cheers & ATVB

    It certainly has gone down hill of late. My ticket has been with them two weeks now for a one for one which use to take a couple of days. Let's hope they get them selfs sorted out soon.

    Maybe a polite phone call before dropping the forms off at the front desk helped ?
    They did say on the phone they had a back list, and that variations were the back of the list till they caught up on new licence issues.
    They have also lost over half the total staff in one fell swoop, if the jungle drums are right, add moving office to the mix and you can see where delays would creep in.

    In all seriousness, I had actually heard all that too...I am not sure it is a happy shop there at the moment.

    However, it is still rather slow and I have made a couple of very polite and friendly phone calls too.

    Cheers & ATVB
