I take my eye off the ball for a  moment or two and look what happens.  In Prague for a few weeks and a gang of Arthur Daley types buys the whole Rover operation for a tenner, flogs everything that's not cemented down, votes itself mega million bonuses and tries, not too hard, to sell the residue (the quite indifferent Rover 75) to the Chinese , who are not all that interested.

Prague was interesting.  Lovely town, Spring in the air, lots of concerts but lots of English, Welsh and Irish bucks coming out on cheap fares for stag nights.  Beer is cheap and good and so are, I hear, the girls.

Interesting for Rovernuts, I saw plenty of Moskowitzs , Polski Fiats and Ladas, a few Zil limos and quite a few Trabants. I took some photos of the Trabants but none so good as on the attached websites
