aston-martin-cygnetIN the Anorak Forums, Yampster looks at the Aston Martin Cygnet, and weeps:

We’ve put up with a lot in this country since the war. We’ve seen the loss of the Empire, we’ve seen Sterling drop from it’s position as one of the world’s safest, most trusted currencies. We have seen our once proud Navy reduced to a couple of armed trawlers in the Straits of Hormuz.

We’ve seen the army that saw off Napoleon, Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo sent home from Iraq with its tail between its legs. We’ve seen tinpot dictators like Armanidinnerjacket thumb his nose at us but we have always had certain standards that we could fall back on.

But this…….this is the last straw.

Ian Fleming will be a sub-terranean blur by now.

“Small is beautiful these days,” Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin’s chief executive, said yesterday. “We have to move on from the preconceived ideas regarding what Aston Martin is about.”

Those ideas are being shattered…

Get a Tata nano, nto a Ta-ra Aston.
