    Surrey.

    Title: "New All-British Speed Car. The Napier Campbell ... designed to compete World honours ... is expected to do 3 miles a minute!"

    M/S of a parked racing car - the bonnet has been removed so we can see the engine. M/S of the same car, six men are gathered around it, some fiddle with the engine (look like mechanics). C/U of a man in a trilby and a man in a flat cap examine the steering wheel. M/S of the driving seat and the steering wheel. C/U of the radiator grill.

    M/S of the car - the bonnet has been replaced, showing the body to be futuristically curvy and aerodynamic. C/U of the six men posing with the car, another man sits in the driving seat. C/U of a man sitting in the driving seat on the car - he looks quite smartly dressed, not a mechanic, one of the designers, perhaps?

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
