Long term report: Peugeot 208

A new appointment at any job usually requires some kind of initiation task. Whether it's the jovial request to post a letter to Mr Seymour Butts or - like in one of my previous roles - persuaded to go to my first Christmas party wearing a bright pink wig.

But the first task handed to me on my appointment as News Editor at AOL far exceeded any of the aforementioned tests of willpower as I was handed the keys to our latest long-termer, the Peugeot 208 and forced to pilot the little Pug from the deepest bowels of Gosport on the south coast (where I work) to the even deeper bowels of Essex (where I live, for now)... during the worst snowstorms this country has seen in years.
