As an owner of two of Leylands’ out-of-production obsolete cars I may say that I have yet to become the victim of unscrupulous dealers selling me cheap unused spares, though I am still hoping. I would like, however, to suggest an answer to Leyland’s carping critics which would, at the same time, help to reduce the length of the dole queues. I suggest that Leyland, as part of a job creation scheme, should employ large numbers of people to destroy their obsolete in-production cars as they leave the assembly line. The benefits to road-users would be enormous; for the first time we would be able to see the complete life-cycle of a motorcar take place within the factory, and Leyland would never again have to worry about the cost of storing quantities of spare parts. Come on Leyland, show the world what you can really do when you bend your collective logical mind to the task!
