Putin called. Expects me to praise Russia’s automotive prowess

Apparently I have a responsibility now to serve and protect Mother Russia’s interests. He says my portrait is hanging in the Kremlin as the founder of modern automotive technology in twenty-first century Russia.

More specifically he takes issue with my showing some examples of car horrors earlier on. Says I do have a point and Russia has a long way to go, but it’s not all sadness and misery and I should show the other side of things too.

Oh dear. So now I’m Russia’s Automotive Propaganda Czar.
