    If only everything in life was as reliable as a Volkswagen

    So at half five yesterday morning I set out on the 28 mile commute to work in the Mk2. Set off as normal and got into town nice and quickly with the absence of dawdlers and HGVs. Got to the Lamascote Roundabout to find all of a sudden, the Golf wouldn't go properly. Despite revving hard and making quick changes, the car would come almost to a stop when I took my foot off the gas.
    Started running through the processes that would be causing the issues as I struggled my way passed a very nice and very new Audi A4 Police traffic car. It was no good, couldn't risk it so turned the old girl round and started to head for home. Struggled passed the traffic car again. Got back to the Lamascote roundabout and had to stop at a red light. Worried that I wouldn't be able to move again and resigned to another commute in the Pug, I dropped the handbrake and moved off. Normally. No resistance and all working without issue.
    Slightly baffled, it suddenly dawned on me what the problem was. If you really want to get anywhere always release your handbrake.

    Also in my defence it would appear the bulb behind the handbrake warning facia appears to have blown!
