Could anyone quote the relevant scripture?
From years of listening to pilots saying 'I asked xxx, and the CAA replied yyy', on deeper delving, in the past, it almost always comes down to the pilot actually asked a slightly different question to the one he claims he asked. (There have been a couple of exceptions in the Oct-Nov 2012 period of overload, but generally it is tracked back to pilot changing the question slightly in 'downstream' reporting!)

Just had a little chat with CT (manning Popham radio). He's already had to 'intercept' and correct clubroom chat today that 'the problem with a LAPL is that it is not valid on permit SEPs/SSEAs
'. It's always the wrong info that spreads faster than the right info
