There is a new advert floating around on the TV at the moment threatening you with instant death1 if you fail to tax your car on time. At the end of the advert it pops up a message in a retro ZX Spectrum style font, part of which says “dvla.gov.uk”.
What is that meant to refer to? It’s not an email address, it’s not a web site (there is no host dvla.gov.uk), and they don’t appear to have renamed the DVLA in a fit of e-moneywasting, so why put it in the advert at all?
My guess is that it’s just a desire to look e-literate which has lead them to show themselves as clueless e-fuckwits.
1: OK it’s an 80 quid fine rather than instant death, but you get my point.
