As opposed to plagerism?, maybe Ron should look at the 458 Italia before he throws stones around. eh?

"Too much free time these days Ron?" FR3000

Did Dennis take time off work to compose a press release and then disseminate it to newspapers? I presume he was overheard making the alleged remark. If so, he might regret the unguarded moment.

In any event, there's plenty agree with him. Many must be long time VW workers made redundant.
