I must admit I never got hold of the 50p commemorative coin and my passport will last many years before renewal so I suspect if I change the car I could get a new number plate without the EU flag.

This has always been an option in the UK anyway marking their exceptionalism whilst still part of the organisation for many decades. No EU flag outside government buildings, no EU flags on your car plate if you did not want it.

I wonder if this is the opportunity to buy my own car plate number. Or more simply a black market of number plates with the EU flag will be created in the coming years. Another Brexit opportunity opening up for those businesses that are first movers in this new sunlit landscape of opportunities.

If you don’t like the new car plates, let’s spinning plates with Radiohead released in 2000. Another era with other expectations and probably better hopes
