WE all love a bit of Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond. For 50-odd years, it has been the good-times anthem played at weddings, festivals and sporting events — and it still will be 50 years from now. One of the greatest songs of all-time? Ask a music buff and they’d probably sneer at it, because it is not Bob Dylan or some unsigned genius on a new social media platform no one has ever heard of. But in terms of making millions of people happy, it is right up there. For Nissan designer and diamond geezer Matt Weaver, the Qashqai is his Sweet Caroline. His greatest hit. You’d think car designers only dream of creating one-metre-high supercars but Weaver is proud to have invented the crossover with Qashqai back in 2007 and it is now a household name. The people’s car. He said: “It’s funny you mention supercar because Qashqai is our super car. It does so many things for everyone. “I love seeing it in car parks and on the highway, seeing who’s using it and how it’s … [Read more...] about Posh yet practical, hybrid and hi-tech…Nissan’s Qashqai will remain No1 SUV

MG was one of the few positive stories of 2020. UK sales shot up 41 per cent to nearly 18,500 and this year it plans to hit 30,000, despite uncertainties over Covid. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg in the reinvention of MG by its Chinese owner Shanghai Automotive, which sold 300,000 cars worldwide last year and plans to hit a million by 2024, MG’s 100th anniversary. We’re expecting to see an all-electric sports car before the year is out and that will be a much-needed halo car that links back to MG’s glorious heritage. Driving out of the gates at Longbridge – MG’s old HQ – in the latest HS plug-in hybrid SUV, it is still hard to believe that less than 20 years ago the Birmingham site produced 200,000 cars and employed 6,000 people. In its heyday in the Sixties, Longbridge had 26,000 workers and was the biggest car plant in the UK. Today, all that remains is the engineering department with 250 staff. The HS model I tested is the perfect illustration of the … [Read more...] about MG’s HS plug-in hybrid is fast-charging high-riding family SUV without any 4×4 capabilities
Big Brother is cruel (we already know that though) - because as soon as soap stars Julie Goodyear (Bet Lynch from Corrie, obviously) and Cheryl Fergison (Heather from Eastenders, OBVIOUSLY) have been set a secret task. Big Brother summoned the pair to the diary room ("Where is that?" - Cheryl) and told the pair they were going to do a task, but had to keep it quiet from their fellow housemates. They didn't really get it. Oh dear. They've both got earpieces and at any time, Big Brother can instruct them to cause drama in the house: tears, laughter or death. Sorry! No. Not death. That's weddings and Christmases only in soaps. The first drama fell to Cheryl, who was instructed to tell Jersey Shore star The Situation that Julie had an affair with her ex boyfriend. The Situation looked a bit blank, and also like he didn't want to hear about old ladies sex lives. We don't either. The next task fell to Julie - she was VERY convincing when she warned Rhian Sugden about men. "Be … [Read more...] about Celebrity Big Brother’s shock twist: Cheryl and Julie’s secret task!
