Promises inside election

Recently, actor and former beauty queen Gul Panag questioned the election manifestos of various parties after a thought worried her while campaigning for Aam Aadmi Party’s Raghav Chadha. She raised her concerns in an article, wherein she said, “As I hit the campaign trail to support Raghav Chadha and Atishi of the Aam Aadmi Party, I can't help but wonder, how in this day and age, candidates are still seeking votes for providing basics.

Now, you’ve come full circle; what attracted you to the new model? There are two cars I regret selling in the UAE, my 4C, and my FN2 Civic Type R, so that’s always been in the back of my mind. That’s lead me to want to get back behind the wheel of the red logo. Honda doesn’t sell this car here which is a real shame; where did...

Not their finest hour: Mitsubishi FTO

Supplied Getting the combination of looks, performance and handling dynamics right in a car is much harder a task than you’d think. Many car manufacturers have got it spot on over the decades, while there are many more who got it wrong. There are countless models that had the looks to kill, but left a lot to be desired in the performance front. One such was the Mitsubishi FTO, a sportscar made between 1994 and 2000, which turned out to be a sales dud despite its promising appearance. It just didn’t have the firepower to back the beguiling looks. With...

Can local currencies help the environment?

Long known for its hippy vibe, urban farms and politically aware artists like Banksy, the UK city of Bristol has more recently become famed for the introduction of its own tender. At one of the city's many organic stores, the people who use the Bristol Pound told DW they use it a lot. "If you think about economics, you keep money in an area, it ends up circulating in one area," a shopper who works in a café at a local city farm told DW. "So to me it makes complete sense and it supports independent businesses." One of those...
