What next? Burberry buys the Corsa division of Opel?

I don’t know whether this is good or bad news, and either way it has no impact on my life, but Lous Vuitton is buying Aston Martin. Sure they are both luxury brands but mixing handbags and camshafts - I’m just not sure. It smacks of one of those “synergy” horrors which used to be so common.  Maybe Daniel Craig will sport a man-purse in the next Bond movie.

Hopefully they’ll do something about the rear-end of all recent Astons which to my eye are identical to a mid-1990’s Mazda.
