No bailout!

The world of cars and motoring is indeed a strange one. On the one hand I find it appalling that the manufacturers have been so blind for the past two decades, obstinately refusing to see where their policies would inevitably lead, unwilling to reform a system from which they were living well.

On the other hand, some blame must be attributed to the trade unions, pushing the hourly wage at 'big three' plants to levels which now threaten any kind of commercial viability.

Mark you, the video below hints that there's something odd about some of the people who buy the cars... The video shows off-roading, Sandlands-style, dune bashing in a Bentley Continental convertible costing not less than 200 thousand Euros! Yee hah!
