While browsing some crap on Yewchewb came across some funny postings about the Allegro VDP:

"March 2019 Britain will be going back to those heady days of the early 1970's and British manufacturing! Can't wait for The new "Austin Brexit"

I have an Austin Brexit. The gearbox is stuck in reverse and it has a nasty habit of stalling. I tried taking it back but the dealers, Mays of Downing St, are very shifty, and say it's non returnable. Their stock reply is 'it's the will of the people, now drive on." The deluxe Van Den Farage model looks good though. Tweed carpets. Tweed upholstery. Tweed headliner. Oak dash. It has a hybrid engine that runs on alcohol vapour and hot air.

Brilliant very good. I need to take a look at the "Vanden Farage" model. I'm also interested in Boris Marina!"

He pronounced Plas wrong, it is Plas as in plastic not plah.
I like that the interior will be available long after the allagro body has rotted away.
