H20 + 4x4's = misery
As I flew out of a sunny and warm Bordeaux I hadn't fully prepared myself for the sheer misery of hiring a car at Gatwick airport and crawling along the M25 and M4 in the driving sleet to a meeting in Bath.
The thing that really stood out though was not the foul weather, the roadworks or the traffic.
It was the volume of giant 4 x 4's that trundled along in the outside lane....where have they all come from? Is the property market so bad that developers have been giving them away free with yuppy flats in Docklands and Weybridge.
Most of all though I'd like to know why every single one of the seven hundred and eighty three that I counted had a personalised number plate for someone called ROB or ALI....
