Strength and Weakness of Cars


Despite the division between Sunni and Shia Islam, Islam's strength is unity; the West's weakness in the face of Islamification and radicalism is its disunity and the Little Englander mentality. Pull up the drawbridge, hunker down and hope for the best. This is something worth bearing in mind when considering the EU vote - strength in unity.


Had my first taste of Uber while in London this week. Rather than stand there hoping for a black cab to trundle past and not know when a free one was available, I had a taxi within 2 minutes and no cash changed hands in the cab. I'll be using it more frequently in future.

On the subject of cars - what with these driverless cars that are on the horizon, does that mean yet another nail in the coffin of the husband? It could make insurance for teenage drivers affordable once more though.

The 500SL is going to be delivered today at around 2pm. Can't wait - although I hope it doesn't get stuck in the traffic for the Badminton Horse Trials, which are being held just up the road this weekend.
