Alexei Sayle on the absurdity of the Humvee automotive fashion trend:

Then, while watching TV the other night, I saw a vehicle that has one-in-four of the world’s sales in its category – the JCB backhoe digger. Where JCB could really expand is by selling itsvehicles to markets outside of the construction industry; for example, to frightened people like me, who up to now have bought impractical 4x4s or big pick-up trucks – even though they don’t have any real need for them, but simply because these oversized, chunky motors give a false sense of security – and who would be attracted to the JCB as the next step up from the Humvee if it was marketed in the right way.
