UK DLVA V5C

I got a new red V5C vehicle log book in the post.  The attached note made me smile. 

Q. Why have you sent me a new V5C(NI)?
A. We are replacing all existing blue V5C(NI)s. The new certificate is being introduced following the theft of a number of blank blue V5Cs. The aim is to reduce the risks to motorists of buying a stolen or cloned vehicle.
