@Might it be
As much that I might agree with your sentiments..
[quote]Thank you, Engerland. Your Westminster System, like your automobiles, is clunky and not at all sexy but it works - reliable so long as you dont keep trying to take corners at high speed or turn the air conditioning on at the same time as the radio. Reliable for realists.[/quote]
Cant take corners? Isn't sexy? WTF?
Aston Martin? Clunky Lotus? Nobel?
And you compare that to, what? The Chevy (Buy one get one free)? Crysler [Crashme] Crossfire?
Maybe your 'new and improved GT40' that isn't 40 inches high anymore, to allow fat asses like Clarkson to get in them, could cut the mustard.. but really.. it's a little too late to be re-designing 1960's classics... did you see a new E-Type floating past at the lights on the way to work today?
As far as 'automobiles'.. commonly called 'cars' in the real world, go.. I'd think that any 'crap' some farmer manages to cobble together in a shed in Whiltshire would happly spank your uber-cornering, sexy, air-con, radio blasting, hillbilly wagons.
In reference to democracy... Gordon Clown wasn't even elected.. so you have us there..
Paris.. because shes likes a good spanking....
