Alas, the GTA, for whatever reason, MAY have fumbled in dealing with Home Office (and to this day - he has had no clarification nor satisfaction from "them," as to what transpired- and who screwed up).

Yes, indeed, he sought extra clarification...but was stunned at the turn of events. And for this reason, Steyr UK Ltd. is immediately resigning as member from the AMTA/GTA. He is also appalled & disappointed regarding all the phone calls eminating from the UK, to several Euro shops from a UK person advising AGAINST selling onward to UK consumers ; he is further saddened by another rumour which purports that some UK consumers were priviledged to have heard first hand from these shops, that names were being gathered by Steyr (not clear if Steyr Austria or Steyr UK), which goes against numerous Data Privacy laws.

In summary, Steyr UK , for its reputation sake, and that by default of the parent company - would like to thank all its faithful customers and hereby sets the record straight "

All this is reputation management - class 101.

I mean you get the drift right ?

Kudos if it happens.

Shame if it doesnt.

PS: 3 posts impressive - how is Cornwall doing nowadays ?
