Several news outlets had the story this week.
Of Samantha Cameron's car, not Mrs.Metro's.
Here is ITV News covering it.
Here is the accompanying picture:
Oxfordshire used-car dealer Iain Harris sold Mr.C a Micra for £1495. There is no mention of Mrs.C being present. Or having had a test-drive. Or having had any say in the matter whatsoever.
When my wife bought her small, darkish blue, Japanese-badged car she researched what she wanted, test-drove it and negotiated the deal. And used her own money to pay for it
Now there could be the rub - Sam Cam got a free car! But, not wanting to sound ungrateful, if the Prime Minister was buying me a car - I'D WANT SOMETHING BETTER THAN A £1500, SECOND-HAND MICRA!
Sam Cam is supposed to be a modern, intelligent woman - surely she can choose and finance her own transport.
It looks like one of these:
And a Micra!
I'm not sure of Dave's car-buying skills either. The article claims he spent half an hour inspecting the car. But this seems to have just been checking if the brake-lights worked. Is buying a used car a way showing he is a man of the people?
Like supporting West Aston Ham Villa United.
I'm guessing it is a British-built, Japanese-badged car. Although as a Bremain advocate, maybe he should have gone for something French, German or Italian. At least it is Tory blue. Maybe, as an image-conscious politician, there is more to think about after all.
And maybe he should have just let Sam Cam go out and choose her own car.
