Only if it was an automatic driven by an old f*rt. That's bound to raise a few hackles and get the comments going. ;o)

I am impressed by how much damage there is to that Bentley. I thought they were built like tanks. Although it does look like the undercarriage might have survived without any damage. Soon knock the front end out with a Birmingham screwdriver and get rid of the scratches with a bit of T-Cut.

Did the Echo photographer arrange to put up the banner on the wall saying 'A Happy Car is a Clean Car!', because Humpty Dumpty had a Great Fall from the wall when he had been asked to fold his arms to show his annoyance?

Is this really a news worthy item? I don't think so. And as someone has already pointed out, if the car had been some rusty old Fiesta there's no way even the Echo would post up a story. Journalism at it's very worst.

I'd love to know how it happened.

It looks a fairly unmissable wall if you ask me.

Was she doing her lipstick or kissing the dog whilst driving?

Also, it must have hit the wall at some speed to cause that sort of damage.

The mind boggles.

Of course this luxury car has an automatic gearbox - after all, who has ever heard of a manual transmission ever being put into the wrong gear?
And as any driver of a vehicle with a manual gearbox will tell you, the reason luxury cars such as Bentley and Rolls Royce usually have an automatic gearbox is because they are so inferior to the manual version . . .
Then, of course, Alantrom, anybody who drives an 'automatic' is an inferior driver, anyway.

You obviously don't watch TV then or don't understand what's going on when you do - most of what's on is repeats from the 70s.

Hmm, so at least four people here believe that an 'automatic' is inferior to a 'manual', and drivers of 'automatics' are inferior to drivers of 'manuals'.
Or do they believe Alantrom is implying something different?
