    Just read this, and it is very amusing, albeit serious and probably makes good sense.  ITV News is reporting that various London fire departments are considering the Mini Cooper as a fast response vehicle.

    Loved the line: “the Fire Brigades Union said they would only be of use in very small fires”.

    Will it look like this?

    The LFB have been using the Countryman ever since it came out. Presumably they carry buckets and a laminated card that says “Can I please use your kitchen tap” translated into fifteen languages.

    "Capable of what?"

    While I’m on a Mini kick, here is a picture of the “fleet” at the LFB training centre in Southwark.
