Vickie Sheriff, Which? Director of Campaigns and Communications, said:
“Whilst the US Government has investigated, the UK Government has simply not done enough to hold VW to account for the emissions scandal. UK customers will find it incredible that US consumers are getting compensation and nothing is on the table for the 1.2 million owners affected in this country.
“The Government must now stand up for the interests of UK consumers and ensure that they’re treated fairly.”

READ THE FULL REVIEW
This is an interesting and entertaining collection of diary entries
made during WWI. They have been edited by the diarist's great niece
and provide a valuable addition to our knowledge of the Home Front
during WWI. A Fascinating account of life on the Home Front. The
drawings she made and the details she included in her diaries and
letters whent far beyond superficial detail and potentially could
have been considered a security risk. As a result, this is a book
will appeal to a great many people beyond the readership of social
history and human interest. Strongly Recommended.
