How Not To Bump Start Your Car, Ladies!

Remember that you need the ignition switched on, and it won't work with an automatic gearbox.

I notice the article said Jump starting which wouldn't be a problem, unless the handbrake was off and drive selected.

If she really was trying to bump start it (possible with some automatics) it would have to be traveling at some speed. With no power steering and very little, if any, brakes it certainly would be "interesting"!

Could some one be that stupid?

As for the "garden" - it looks more like a mountainside to me...

Bloke in the neighbouring garden isn't being very helpful, probably goimg to the pub.

Off topic but I cannot otherwise e-mail you but,

The new Speaker, John Bercow has quietly dropped the repayment list light fingered MPs.

They can still repay whatever they want but we are not to be allowed to see who and how much; wee the robbed that is!

Transparency! The Parliamentary side of my arse.

They can donate 2p and say that they have fully repaid the sum they inadvertently received in error and didn't actually ask for because the rules were so vague and it a cultural thing anyway.

They have not changed one fucking bit and need eviscerating to start with.

Inevitable that it was a Bimmer, isn't it?

The first thing the new owners should do (after having the car is removed from the garden) is to either paint those God awful breeze blocks or put some render on them. I would suggest 'Powerwall' but that might be a bit pricey.
The guy next door has given it a go but the colour is nasty.

Lets face it most people who buy BMWs are a little short in the brains department.
When I first saw the picture I thought it was the latest Art installation from Tracey Emin or someone.
Thats one hell of steep garden-reminds me of the hanging gardens of babylon only shittier and not in babylon.
