    Local dealers are currently advertising the new mini on line.

    The advert is rather strangely worded it refers to the cars "notorious handling"

    Not sure its the best way to attract buyers !!!

    Ha not seen this.

    I love our JCW handling. Very weird going from the X5 in to the MINI.

    So many young journalists and graduates are ignorant of English vocabulary. I read examples like the above on a daily basis.
    No doubt they just use Roget's Thesuraus and select a word from the list that sounds as though it might fit.
