Do I have to respond to a NIP for speeding if it arrived after 14 days?

I've received a NIP dated 15 November for doing 35mph in a 30mph zone on 30 August. I believe the police have 14 days to issue these but obviously, this had been 14 weeks. How do I respond to it?

If you are the registered keeper of the car it can be set aside for that reason, as in the recent David Beckham case. But if the NIP was received by the registered keeper within the 14 days, they identified you as the driver, and it merely took until now to get to you, this is no defence.
