    I would have been smuggling the bloody Austin Maxi parts back in along with the Allegro and the princess oh and the Ambassador, I bet he sits in the pub saying I smuggled Austin Allegro parts out of the Leyland plant and his mates look at him and say "really"

    I reckon he would have got away with it if he'd left the folding bikes behind - just plain greedy.
