Until Wednesday I had a completely different idea in mind for this column. It never occurred to me that I might be writing about an old Mercedes-Benz A-Class I’d just bought. But then, in a bored and idle moment, I tweeted a picture of it and, to my astonishment the likes and retweets came pouring in by the hundred. But the most amazing thing, at least to me expecting a fair degree of scorn and banter for buying such a car, were the comments: there wasn’t a negative one in there.
