    Came across this earlier when reading about how Prime Ministers are banned from driving for security reasons, it appears that David Cameron only owns one car of his own, a Honda CR-V which he absolutely adores.

    There we have it folks, an endorsement from the Prime Minister himself - I guess the CR-V isn't a good car after all :blush:

    At least Dave has a car, and a fine choice, too.

    Last time I looked, Ed Miliband had a motorcycle and side car...

    I remember reading this article too. A good political choice from DC, as Swindon is not too far from his Oxfordshire constituency. Plays along with the "just an ordinary guy" image he likes to cultivate, too.

    I suspect he's more of a Range Rover guy and will bin the CR-V as soon as he's out of the public eye!

    Whatever his reasons are for having a CR-V, it's a great endorsement for Honda!
    Well done DC. :clap:

    As I said to @DeviateDefiant - he would be a great one to sign the Honda letter - to have the country PM signature on a letter to HUK would be something to behold (probably still wouldn't make a difference however, but imagine the kudos of having him backing the letter up)

    Who wants to send the email?? :Whistle:

    We might have to re-word it to state that any new Accord would need to be made in Swindon. Not sure our PM would want to endorse customers buying a Japanese made car over British built alternatives...

    The 80's was cool, by far the best decade.

    I'd love to go back to the 80's, although not sure that's what Labour had in mind with that poster...:Laughing:
