The British Motor Industry's Jubilee

On developing a sense of proportion

MY good friend "Bunny" Tubbs has a not inconsiderable bee in his bonnet. In saying that, I am referring to a line of thought he has been letting off at me lately on the subject of American automobiles, and not to what goes on in the engine compartment of his D.K.W. . . .

Matters of moment

A plea from British Leyland BL has joined the "Buy British" Campaigners with a plea to those concerned over prospects of longer dole-queues, smaller wage-packets and salary cheques, and bigger tax-demands, to shun imported cars. It bases its arguments on factors well-known to financial wizards, so we need not enumerate them here. But perhaps, without taking sides, we should at least give BL space...
