UK place names are boring
I was just reading my Auto Express and in a review of the new Seat Altea, they happened to mention all Seats are named after towns in Spain. Ibiza, Leon, Alhambra, should I have noticed this before ?
Anyway, I was thinking, if MG-Rover (for example) decided to change their naming policy to the same idea for UK towns, it just wouldn't work would it. UK place names are really boring
The Rover Bournmouth..err no.
The new Rover Blackpool!
The MG S****horpe
I guess thats why Morris never really kept it going with the Oxford etc.
Its the same for music - classic tunes for places all over the world, but nothing with a familiar home town for us. Get your kicks on route 66, just wouldn't sound the same for 'M25'.
I must be so bored. I'm sure I had a life... must have left it somewhere....
