Into the Dragons’ Den

Reader mistakes Huddersfield Examiner letters page for pitch in the Dragons’ Den shocker!

Thank you to Anna Holden.

Huddersfield Examiner, 24 June 2010:

A tissue, a tissue?

AN Examiner motoring column recently praised a vehicle for the provision of cup-holders accessible to both front and rear passengers.

All cars nowadays seem to provide cup-holders which I find moderately useful for holding spare keys or loose change – but I never drink and drive – not even soft drinks.

However, I have a real need for a holder for boxes of tissues. We are all familiar with plucking a clean tissue and the box declining to let go and swinging the thing about, trying to get it loose.

If a motoring columnist could take this issue up, perhaps others might follow suit and the manufacturers might eventually listen.

Arthur, I’ll tell you where I am…

…I’m urrrt, i.e. “I’m out”.
