Comment Bad for the UK, but good for the world (Score 5, Insightful) 394

I think this is something that will ultimately hurt a lot of innocent people in the UK over the coming years.

People buy expensive cars for the same reason people have perfect lawns and fancy driveways: to compensate for a lack of self esteem.

That's a little unfair.

Power (20-way adjustable) seats, heated steering wheel, tight, well tuned suspension, advanced safety and control systems, low road noise... there are plenty of reasons people buy expensive cars that have nothing to do with vanity.

Similarly, a nice lawn/driveway may well raise the perceived value of a home.
