To paraphrase the magnificent Michael Winner: ‘Calm down, dears, it was only a blog.’

All I said was that I didn’t rate Fiats, which - as this is still a free country - I am entitled to do. Any kind of prejudice is often irrational and inexplicable, but I did at least provide a bit of evidence for why I wasn’t exactly in love with them.

To read exactly what I said, click on my previous blog - Fancy a Fiat? Or Elle Macpherson?

Still, it seems my little jokes didn’t seem to go down very well – a shame, as all I wanted to do was lighten up everyone’s Friday. It certainly was not my intention to ignite the website.

Indeed, there are far easier ways of provoking everyone, but I intend to do a ‘Climate change is bunkum’ piece this Friday…
