In 2007, the then Chancellor Gordon Brown attended the launch of the new Toyota Auris:
“During his visit to Toyota’s Burnaston plant in Derbyshire on Monday, the chancellor toured the Auris assembly lines and met with workers and senior management.
Addressing an audience at the event, Mr Brown said: “I am delighted to be here in Burnaston to see for myself this successful plant and to congratulate all those involved as the UK production of the Auris begins.””
The BBC is now reporting that “Toyota is in the process of recalling millions of cars owing to fears of a sticking accelerator pedal. Cars in the US, Europe and China are all involved in the recall but different models are affected.” What model is being recalled in the UK?
The cursed Auris of course.
