4x4's are known as "pratmobiles" around here. Basically because they are never driven off road except for grass verges. Driven by "prats".
How silly and disappointing to judge somebody by the car they drive. Do they judge people by the colour of their skin too?

All SUVs should be banned because the drivers are posh.

All Ferraris should be banned because their drivers are rich. Same goes for Lamborghinis and McLarens.

All phones should be banned because they use up the rare metals and cause covid.

The pyramids should be torn down because slave labour was used to construct them.

Any more ridiculous woke thoughts?

At least a Morris Traveller sounds better than a Morris Pikey.

I think lots of car names will need to be changed in the context of increasing awareness:

Ford Escort to Ford Sex Worker
Ford Consul to Ford Elected Representative
2CV Dolly - 2 CV unisex marionette
Austin Maestro - Austin Maestra
Lotus Elite - Lotus Equality
Ferrari Roma - Ferrari travelling Romanian lifestyle
And so on...

At least the Vauxhall No Va will not need to have a name change.
