While Laverty's no doubt tucking himself into bed waiting for Father Christmas to pop by and leave him '70s-vintage mint Corgis still in their original packaging, we're enjoying his rant on the Volvo 480, a sporty hatch that the Swedes launched back in '86 before Ford tried to make 'em all sensible and whatnot. Saying, "Only people who want the best but will never be able to afford it buy the 480. We mean never, no hope of ambition beyond middle management and an office with an openable window," he goes on to sing the Volvo's praises with a quick twist of the knife and a generous portion of clotted cream with strawberry preserves.
