    IIRC a handful of customers tried to sue for return of their deposits, but it was Jaguar who successfully sued customers for breach of contract in failing to complete the purchase of their cars, and deposits of c£50k were forfeit. PH

    Are you worried yet.

    As someone said earlier, a crisis like this brings out the best in some folk and the worst in others. IMHO if an individual intentionally endangers someone's health, e.g. by spitting or coughing at them, the offender should forfeit their human rights and be named and shamed without delay...

    The chap in Melbourne who bought my Assetto had to pay quite a bit to meet the import compliance regs, and that was on top of the shipping cost. Are they still stringent on import compliance? PH

    Didn't I read that a certain Mr Cummings (allegedly) mooted the idea of getting rid of old folk? If the story is true, all he would need is a Cumming's plan (with apologies to Baldrick). ;) PH
