Mostly good, (particularly £39 for three years) but that countersignature stuff really winds me up - who is to say that the listed classes of person are any more honest than normal decent citizens? Also you are giving them assorted proofs anyway.
Also sign & date and put their name under it? That could be anybody - sign it John Smith, teacher - how could that ever be checked as right or wrong?
All seems to have come straight from the Victorian era.
Yes gov'ner I'll tug my forelock, because I'm only an untrustworthy peasant...
I totally agree with your sentiments, but there has to be some form of cross checks even if it is open to abuse, what else can they do.
At lest you do not need a counter signing by a corrupt politician, incompetent doctor or somebody from the legal profession that shouts total crap just to make a name for themselves and persuade the gullible.
