Running in front of a bull in a bright red top = perfectly fine, in fact it's encouraged.

Running in front of a bull in a bright red top while talking a selfie = outrageous, dangerous, stupid and illegal.

Not British owned, no. These things increasingly matter less and less though. The only real value having it owned by the British is that they're more likely to establish operations here. Not a lot more to be honest.

Aston Martin is still predominantly British, as is McLaren, Bentley and Rolls Royce motors are now German. Lotus is Malaysian.

A fairly large part of the cost of any car is the up-front cost of design and of setting up a production line. Launching a new family car can cost the best part of £500m before you've even built a single production vehicle. Platform sharing (using the same basic design for many different models) is vital in the modern motor industry, by spreading that up-front cost across more vehicles sold. You also make big gains in terms of distribution and servicing, because the same spare parts can be used across many different cars.

For example, (excluding the i series) BMW only really make four cars, they just dress them up differently - one Mini platform, a small car (1/X1/2/3 series) a large car (4/5/6/7 series and Rolls Royce) and their crossover SUVs. The only real difference between the cars in each group are the bodyshells, interior trim and some minor component changes to adjust ride height, with the mechanicals underneath being essentially identical. They plan to consolidate that to just two platforms by 2017. BMW have many technology-sharing deals with other companies - selling engine packages to smaller manufacturers, swapping engine and electronics technology with Mercedes and so on.

VAG's big plan is to move to a single mega-platform for the majority of their cars. The MQB platform will provide the underpinnings for the next models of Polo, Beetle, Golf, Scirocco, Jetta, Tiguan, Touran, Sharan and Passat, all Skodas and Seats, and all front-wheel-drive Audis. They have figured out some very clever tricks to allow them to build cars of different wheelbase and track on the same production line.

Three other platforms will cover the rest of the range - NSF for very small city cars, MLB for front-engined Audis, Porsches and Bentleys, and MSB for mid- and rear-engined Porsches and Lamborghinis (and the Audi R8). Within the next five years, all VAG cars except the XL1 and the Veyron should be based on those four platforms. This is the main reason why buying up lots of brands would make sense for them - they could launch a completely new range for a brand at minimal cost, thanks to the flexibility of their platforms.

Not really, Polish mayo is like English salad cream, too tangy for some. Pick whatever off the shelf and have a go - the bigger Tescos usually stock the "best" brand of every product.

As far as Polish products go, I really like our sausages and bread. A dollop of good mustard, and you're set.

How do our fellow Europeans feel about are Dave's dramatic stand against Juncker? Is he making us a national laughing stock as the other world leaders seem to be making out in our media? Do you lot want Juncker yourselves? As I understand it the latest euro elections went very hard right so I just don't understand why everyone is supporting a federalist.

Because whilst there was a reasonable swing against federalism, the vast majority still voted for parties that are very pro Eu. One of the things Dave has said, and rightly so, is that it'd be wrong to empower a hardliners federalist in the wake of the way the political wind is blowing.

Dave hasn't embarrassed himself so much, but he has driven himself into a stupid corner since he's no longer in the EPP and so doesn't really have a leg to stand on regarding who the EPP puts in place. Leaving the EPP was a short term domestic policy move, one that hasn't paid off in the wake of european politics as a whole.

You seem to be quite well up on the subject, I only get my information from the daily politics and the beeb. One of the things that I don't understand is why there seemed to be so much support for the anti Juncker movement last week but it all evaporated when Germany changed its mind. The cynic in me thinks Cameron never actually had that much support and it was all a bit of spin.

Germany has the most influence in the Eu by far, certainly far more than Cameron, especially considering he's in a minor party in the EU parliament now and we've always been distant from eu politics.

The likely answer is that we're the only country that takes the anti eu sentiment halfway seriously, hence the big switch in favour of Juncker.

I am currently learning Mandarin, Tagalog and Cantonese simultaneously. Please kill me.
