As ordinary people continue to suffer the consequences of the economic collapse – through wage cuts, job losses, short term working etc., politicians are fond of telling us that we must all share the pain.
However figures for new car sales released by the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI) show that not everyone is sharing the pain. The most popular car sold in August was the BMW 5 series which has a starting price of €50,000.
