    Looking like its a global issue...

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-34345210

    OK, so Joe Blogs takes his Ford Fiesta Diesel for its MOT, it fails due to exhaust emission readings being to high,,, so his cars off the road and he's facing a big bill to put right... But eleven million VW drivers are still driving around in cars that wouldn't pass the test either cos they (VW) couldn't even get the emmisions right without the "cheat device" when the engines were brand new never mind with a few thousand miles on them...

    So should all these VW cars not be off the road like Joe Bloges Fiesta...

    And just how are VW going to fix it, if they can't originally produce an engine that meets the emmision standards without the "cheat device", how are they suddenly going to come up with eleven million engines that do...

    Will VW end up buying back eleven million cars...

    Now let's say you you own your own business, then you find out behind your back one or more of your employees has been up to no good and their actions are going to cost you a fortune in fines and have a huge financial impact on the finances of your company, what do you do:-

    a... Throw yourself on your sword...
    b... Find the feckers who've been up to no good and hang them out to dry...

    Think I know what I'd be doing, but Mr VW, no, protests his innocence and disappears in to blue yonder,,, mmmm, well only time will tell:-

    I'm just wondering when the next car manufacturer comes clean and puts their hand up and says "yeah, we were at it too...". I can't believe there's only VW involved in this.
