Prime Ministerial Car



The new Secretary of State for the Home Department already has one and the new Prime Minister awaits one, too.

It is the brand new Jaguar XJ; doubtless armour-plated and long wheel-base for the PM.

I presume that, unlike our lot up at Stormont, they were not tempted by a fleet of Skodas, good as they (the Skodas!) are.

I, for one, am glad that the Government, unlike the Folks on the Hill, is supporting British Industry.

Sorry Tim, I think you are a little out of touch here, Tata Motors, India, have owned Jaguar since 2008.

Ha ha ! Granny mar, I thought I'd lost you!

I see the splendid plasterwork in parts of the Ulster Hall is peeling and discolouring. Still.

Good point about Jaguar, BTW. We still manufacture them here though, yes, Tayto - sorry - Ta-Ta pay the wages! :-)
