Manufacturers testing wider cars for swingbellies

Stop

This won't solve anything.

Rather than making bigger cars for lard arses would it not be better to encourage the gravitationally challenged to get out and walk?

Just what we need to study the Big Bang with.

Is Mandy right to cut science funding?

New car anyone?

Instead of cutting science research we could just stop giving wealthy people £2 grand to scrap their perfectly good used car (which they could probably sell for a similar price) in order to save 80 jobs in the west midlands. While we're at it we could stop giving subsidies to motor manufacturers who threaten to move production elsewhere. They won't move very far if we start taxing their imports.

And before anybody starts whining about unemployment or new cars being better for the environment - those 80 people could be re-deployed building a proper road network around London. The engines of the perfectly good 10 year old cars could then burn at higher efficiency doing useful work instead of spending most of the time idling on the <insert number of your local traffic jam here>.

Hey presto! Economy, environment and science all saved.
